Blinc Blinc Mascara

What it is:The famous pioneering, tube-technology water-resistant mascara.What it does:Blinc Mascara is the original tube-technology mascara. It's invented to form tiny water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold, rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. Once applied, the tubes bind to your lashes and don't run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes.What else you need to know:This mascara adds both volume and length, to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day. Neither water nor pressure alone will remove Blinc Mascara. Only the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure (no need for harsh makeup removers) will slide the tiny tubes effortlessly off your lashes into your hand. Upon removal, you will actually see the tiny tubes slide into your hand.Among the nominees in the 2008 Best of Sephora, Blinc Mascara has been clinically tested to be non-irritating, making it ideal for sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold, and ease of removal is without compromise.

Try this. This mascara is the best I've ever worn. The formula creates tubes over your real lash to make them look longer and thicker. It will not rub off. The only way to remove the product is with soap, water and slight pressure. I have not had any issues with sensitivity with blinc.

Try Blinc mascara. It makes fabric tubes around your lashes. It's not liquid, and it doesn't harden or run. It's pretty godd at lengthening, less volumizing. It comes off like little threads when you wash your face. I have sensitive skin/eyes and am a contact lens wearer-I never have problems with this.

You'll have good luck with this. It doesn't creep into eyes through the day. The product stays on your lashes where you put it, until you take it off in the evening. If you rub your eyes a lot or sleep with it on, you may notice a little flaking, but that would be the most of your troubles. I recommend giving it a try; it's the only mascara I use because I know it won't budge.

Can you use makeup remover with this?
The write-up on Sephora says in a couple of places that you should not use makeup remover with this product; however, I generally need a makeup remover to get all of my eyeliner off cleanly. If I do use a makeup remover (Bosica's makeup-breakup) will that cause problems with removing the mascara?

Using an eye make-up remover is not going to affect the removal of this mascara -- it will still come off using water and pressure. The remover will NOT remove the mascara, though. I would recommend removing the mascara with water and pressure first and THEN using the make-up remover to remove everything else; I at least find it easier to see that I've cleanly removed ALL of my liner and other eye make-up this way.

I tried removing this mascara with a makeup remover a few times and found that it did not do much. I might take off some of it, but nowhere near all of it. I find the best way to get it off is just with a cloth in the shower. Also, when it comes off, it is in the shape of tubes just like your lashes. It sort of looks like your lashes are coming out, but they are not!

It comes off with warm water, but a normal amount of tearing--say mild allergies, or happy wedding tears--will not affect it. Sobbing (it happens!) will make the tubes come off, but even then it's not terribly messy.

I find that as long as I am not touching my eyes, the mascara will only clump very slightly, and even that only happens if I'm really crying my eyes out and blinking a lot. Tears which form as a result of wind, eye irritation, or sneezing don't impact the mascara. I do find that after prolonged crying, the tubes will come off easily to the touch, but if you leave them alone then they'll dry again and stay in place. So just don't touch your face if you're at a funeral or getting married and prone to happy weeping. Everyday eye moisture should have no impact.

Blinc mascara or Fiberwig

Fiberwig gives more volume and was easier to build upon. With Blinc mascara you can not build upon it once the formula is fully dry due to the fact it will cause major clumping. Blinc does make my eyelashes appear longer and the formula helps with defining each lash. Also, Blinc mascara comes off easier than Fiberwig mascara.

I'd say you're right, although, the tubes on the Blinc mascara are more sturdy, so once it's set, you can't do much with it- it's also a bit of a cleaner look. But with fiberwig I found I can apply more coats and I get a bit more volume- it also doesn't come off quite as easily

Fiberwig is for volume; Kiss Me Mascara is for hold and definition.
That being said, I use a volumizing mascara (Neutrogena Healthy Volume with olive oil is lovely) first, as many coats as I please; THEN put a coat of Kiss Me Mascara over it. I get the "tube-technology" hold with the volume I want.
Granted, it takes a light hand and practice to nail it every singe time; but that is true with any type of makeup style. Because eyelashes grow sporatically as any hair, paying attention to the wear of all my mascara is important to me.

With blinc mascara (which is waterproof) I could go swimming and the mascara would stay in place.
With a water resistant mascara, you could have your eyes water or maybe drop a few tears and it would be okay without smearing but you wouldn't be safe after swimming.

answer 2
Waterproof mascara will not come off in water alone - you will likely need soap, eye make-up remover, or (in the case of blinc), to physically remove the product from your lashes. You can go swimming, bawl your eyes out, or hang out in a hurricane and this stuff stays on. Water resistant can hold up to some light, brief, a quick dip in a hot tub, and a few minutes of exposure to a slight misting rain. Much easier to remove than waterproof.

The difference between this one and water-proof is that with this one it can start to come off when water hits it, but it dosn't smear at all or get on your face, it will just simply peel off a bit. I haven't found anoter one that doesn't smudge at all in water or when you itch your eyes, only this one! great for allergies!

Waterproof means water cannot be used to remove the product. You need to use some type of cleaning product to dissolve the product. (Think paint thinner!!) Water-resistent means water alone does not remove the product. Only the combination of lots of water and gental rubbing will remove the product.

my understanding of waterproof is that it can withstand some water to the face w/out running, but also needs an oil based remover to take it off. A water resistant, I hear will run off w/water and is easier to remove. I wouldnt swim w/it on though- I liked the kiss me mascara from Blinc- you can swim w/it on and it wont run, and comes off w/hot water-easy-peasy.

I originally used Fiberwig (for maybe 3 years), which is amazing at lengthening but definitely lacks in the volumizing department, until I was blown away by switching to Blinc last year. If I had to choose between them, I'd have to go with Blinc. I think it clumps a little more easily and takes longer to get length, but it's far better with volume. When I have the time, I try lengthening with Fiberwig first and adding Blinc on top after.

I don't wear contacts but can tell you this mascara doesn't come off until you wash it off with lots of water and a bit of rubbing with your fingers. I even find that it won't come off unless I use cleanser. I'm assuming you take your contacts out before you wash your face so it shouldn't be a problem. That said, be aware that when you remove the mascara, it comes off in little "tubes". It almost looks like your eyelashes are falling out but its just the mascara. If you are wearing your contacts when you remove the mascara and the little tubes get in your eyes (cleanser too?) I'm sure it will be uncomfortable. I have never had an problem or irritation though. Hope this helped.

It wouldn't hurt to pair it with a conditioning base, but it has been my experience that it's not necessary. It is waterproof, but not in the same way as the other brands. Other bands use harsh chemicals to make it "waterproof." This one is waterproof but because the product coats each lash it gives it a protective barrier against elements and allows each lash to keep it's natural moisture on the lash itself. I've used this product for years and I've never had an issue with it drying or damaging my lashes. In fact, my experience has been the exact opposite.
