{Tested} Blinc Mascara

2012 March 6


—————————————————————————————————

Like something out of a sci-fi movie, Blinc Mascara forms tiny, water resistant “tubes” around your lashes to “add volume and legnth.”

Blinc’s manufacturers claim the “tube technology,” works so well that you’ll never get raccoon eyes again. “It cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake…even if you rub your eyes, cry or sweat,” they say. It also doesn’t require makeup remover to take off–just use water, apply pressure and “the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes into your hand.”

Sounds tubular–but is it true? We sent Blinc to 5 FOFs to test. What’d they think? Read on.

Quick take: 4 out of 5 testers would recommend Blinc mascara to other FOFs.

Yes, without reservation.

Jeanne Traxler — Brookline, MA

Was this product easy to use?
It goes on like a regular mascara, although they recommend you shake the wand as you put it on, but that was simple enough.

Did it run, smudge, clump or flake?
No, it stays put even when you rub your eyes or if your eyes water. I also thought it did a good job of separating and coating each lash.

Did it add length and volume to your lashes?
A little length, but not too much volume. As an FOF, I don’t want too much volume and thickness on a daily basis anyway. That might scream ‘I’m trying too hard.’ This mascara is great for daily wear.

Was it easily removed?
Yes, the removal is fabulous! As advertised, you just soak it with lots of warm water and poof!–the tubes slide off and wash away. It’s quick and you don’t have to rub the sensitive skin under your eyes or eyelids at all. If you wear this mascara to bed, some of it flakes a bit, but you don’t wake up with raccoon eyes.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
Yes–this is fantastic! In a 40 degree whipping wind with tears running down my nose it stayed right on. It’s easy to remove but doesn’t come off every time you touch your eyes. The fact that you don’t have to rub to get it off is key–when you are older you try to protect the delicate skin around the eyes as it thins.

Would you recommend this product to other FOF members?
Yes, I would highly recommend it. It’s even worth indulging.

Denise Morelli — Harrison City, P.A.

Was this product easy to use?
No. The brush was too long and I had to remove smudges from around my eye area during application.

Did it run, smudge, clump or flake?
No. As promised by the manufacturer, once applied this product stays on until you remove it.

Did it add length and volume to your lashes?
Length–no. It simply covered the length I already had. Volume–yes. It appeared as if I had more lashes but nothing extraordinary.

Was it easily removed?
Yes. Warm water combined with slight pressure does remove the ‘tubes’ from the lashes.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
No. For me, it was too fussy. The application was difficult. You have to get the application right the first time or start over as the tubes set within 2 minutes. Also, the instructions say not to put moisturizer on your face before application. Instead, I put moisturizer after applying the mascara which was tricky.

Would you recommend this product to other FOF members?
Only if you have a problem with your mascara running or smudging. Once applied, it does stay on even when wet or if you rub your eyes. It is also easier to remove than regular waterproof mascara. If you don’t need this feature and are looking for long, full, lashes–you can use a different mascara and get the results for a lot less money.

Gwen Reich – Coppell, TX

Was this product easy to use?
It was very easy to use. I got better at applying it after the first few times.

Did it run, smudge, clump or flake?
Not at all. It is AMAZING.

Did it add length and volume to your lashes?
Yes. Definitely length and because each lash looked fatter, it appeared I had more lashes.

Was it easily removed?
Yes, with a little warm water and gentle pressure.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
Definitely. I had not worn mascara in over two years because it was too frustrating to find an affordable brand that didn’t end up all under my eyes.

Would you recommend this product to other FOF members?
Definitely. I have already recommended it to others. Since I haven’t worn mascara in a couple of years, I can’t compare this one to the other new mascaras on the market, but I absolutely love it and will continue to use it.

MAUREEN CARROLL – New Fairfield, CT

Was this product easy to use?
It went on more smoothly than my normal mascara on my top lashes. My bottom lashes tend to cross over, my normal mascara pulls them apart but this one didn’t. However it was easy to correct.

Did it run, smudge, clump or flake?
No.

Did it add length and volume to your lashes?
Yes.

Was it easily removed?
It came off easily in the shower.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
Definitely.  I trust it much more than my old mascara.  I’m a crier and because of this, I often won’t wear mascara on my bottom lashes. In this case–no telltale smudges.

Would you recommend this product to other FOF members?
Definitely.

    I have tried Blinc. I was not as happy with it as I had
    anticipated. I had clumps that just didn’t work into
    the lash well. I do like the tubing around the lash
    idea. Did make my lashes seem thicker.
