I have a little bit of an eyelash obsession. First I was hooked on LashBlast. Then I got the extensions. Then the extensions fell out and I was hooked on Maybelline The Falsies. And now I’m all over the place. Rimmel Lash Accelerator is my daily go-to, but I’m also loving MAC’s double wand mascara and that fab bareminerals one that I got in my last Birchbox. Yes, I know. Spoken like a true product junkie.
Anyway, I was at Townhouse Spa (aka, heaven) over the weekend and I spied blinc’s mascara at the counter. Intrigued by the packaging, I picked it up.
“Stop Painting Your Lashes… Tube Them!” proclaimed the packaging. Hmmm. What exactly did this mean? I asked around and the two receptionists began to wax poetically about it, ranting and raving about tiny tubes and no smudging. And so I purchased said tube, and brought it home.
I got home from the spa and (literally) immediately rushed to the bathroom to give it a try. The verdict? J’amazing. Basically, it forms tiny water-resistant tubes around your eyelashes, and it will not budge (cry, rub your eyes, do what you need to do,) until you take it off. Removal is easy – it comes off easily in the shower or while you wash your face – and it’s kinda satisfying to watch the tiny tubes come off.
Lashes feel slightly plasticy / fake, but there is no irritation – I like the product a lot. It’s not for days where you want a high-drama look, but as an everyday mascara, it fits the bill. And the fact that it is literally impossible to smudge the stuff makes me incredibly happy.
