A new mascara has hit the shelves-Blinc. I was curious about this one because it boasts something different (as they all do). Blinc adds volume by creating tubes around your lashes. Now I didn’t know how this would work or look, but I decided to give it a try. This particular formula is supposed to be good for everyone, but especially those who wear contacts, have had laser eye surgery, are active, or swimmers.
When I first applied Blinc to my lashes didn’t see the type of animated volume I expected, but that may have just been an exaggerated and unrealistic idea I had from the mention of tubes. However, it did add volume and depth to my lashes. It wasn’t dramatic like Dior or Lancome’s Hypnose, but definitely more so than your drug-store brands. At $25 a tube, the price point is on par with prestige brands. What I did notice is that it is very wet-almost “inky”. So I immediately got a smudge, but that was easily corrected so I won’t take points from them on that.
Blinc is supposed to set within 90 seconds and that was about right, but that gave me time to build it up a bit and I liked the result. Once I got used to the “inky” texture, I was able to apply without smudges.
Now here’s the kicker. What I really love about Blinc mascara the most is taking it off! That’s not a diss (do people still say diss?). Anyway, my point is that it comes off so easily that I didn’t even need my trusty Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover. Just washing my face, the tiny tubes came right off. And when I specifically wanted to remove the mascara, just water and a slight wipe did the trick. No tugging or pulling on the skin around my eye and no smearing. Do you realize how great that is for your skin. A mascara that adds volume and is easy on the eyes. Win, win!
