If you're looking for a no-hassle, no-smudge mascara that you can take throughout your day with no re-application, blinc mascara is your answer. Instead of painting your lashes like conventional mascaras, blinc mascara forms tiny no-smudge, water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes. Once applied, these mascara tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes.
Whether your daily activities take you from the office, to your sweaty workout or out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning. blinc mascara will add volume and length to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day.
Only when you are ready for removal, the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes into your hand without the use of a harsh makeup remover.
blinc is better than water proof mascaras. All it takes is the combination of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly. Upon removal you will see the tiny tubes in your hand!
Great for sensitive eyes, mascara from blinc has been clinically tested to be non-irritating making it ideal for contact lens wearers and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.
You apply blinc like a regular mascara.
It is important that you do not use conditioners, lotions, etc... before applying the mascara.
blinc requires a dry, clean surface in order to adhere properly to your lashes.
It takes blinc about 2 minutes to set and begin forming the tiny "tubes" around your lashes.
Do not let it set before applying another coat in order to build...keep adding coats until you are satisfied with the volume, length and degree of lash separation before blinc mascara sets.
Once it sets, you can no longer build.
Only when you are ready, blinc can easily be removed with a combination of warm water and gentle pressure.
Pressure alone is not enough, and water alone is not enough.
It must be a combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure - for example taking a shower, will make the tiny tubes effortlessly slide off your lashes.
You will actually see the tiny beauty tubes in your hand.
Nothing oily can make blinc come off...not even if you have really oily skin.
TIPS & TRICKS
If you accidently apply too much mascara on your lashes, gently swipe your lashes with a dry q-tip to absorb any excess mascara.
If required, once your mascara is applied, use a lash comb to separate lashes prior to the mascara setting, for even greater definition.
If you love blinc's performance qualities but occasionally use another mascara for a different look, try applying blinc over the other mascara to "tubify" and seal it with blinc's unparalleled staying power.
Blinc mascara is great for use on fake lashes and eyelash extensions, since it doesn't require makeup remover (which can reduce the longevity of the adhesives used).
For an unexpected pop of color, use black on your entire lash and then use dark green, blue or purple on just the tips (make sure that you don't let the black set completely before adding the color).
ADDING EXTRA VOLUME & LENGTH
For the most voluminous lashes, apply blinc lash primer to lashes before applying your blinc mascara.
For additional volume, apply two or three coats while the mascara is still moist, waiting only about 20 seconds in between each coat (note: don't wait for it to dry completely in between coats).
For additional length, focus on the tips of the lashes, especially the lashes at the outer corners of the eyes with a few strokes of the mascara wand.
Once set, additional coats cannot be applied.
To add a lot of length: apply it in multiple strokes and several coats at the tip of the lashes.
This almost acts like a lash extension and adds great length.

Blinc's 6 color choices offer lots of versatility.
Black is the hands down favorite for an intense look, but many women like to try other colors as well. Dark Brown offers a gentler daywear look than the black while Medium Brown gives an even softer look and is well suited for women with light coloring.
Blue, Purple and Green go on quite dark, but are reflected in certain lights for a subtle dash of color. Some blinc users apply the black mascara to the top lashes and a colored mascara to the bottom lashes.
For an unexpected pop of color, you can even use black on your entire lash and then use dark green, blue or purple on just the tips.
Just make sure that you don't let the black set completely before adding the color.

Do you use fibers on your lashes?
If you do, blinc is the best mascara to apply after your fibers because it locks them into place, holding them all day, until you remove them at night.

I don't understand how blinc mascara is water resistant, yet it only comes off with the use of water?
Neither water nor friction alone is enough to remove blinc mascara. It is only when the two are combined that the mascara can be removed. By simply washing your face and applying gentle pressure to the lashes, the tubes that were formed will easily slide off. Water loosens the mascara's adhesion to the lashes, but it still takes the gentle pressure to remove the tubes. As an example of how much pressure is required, taking a shower should provide enough for blinc to slide off your lashes.
Can I use my regular make-up remover to take it off?
The only thing that will effectively remove the mascara is water and pressure. Using cleansing milks or eye make-up removers may or may not work. Furthermore, they do not help the health of your eyes, so why use them? The purpose of creating blinc was to avoid harmful makeup removers, as well as rubbing the part of the face most susceptible to wrinkling.
Will I damage or pull out my lashes when I am removing blinc mascara?
No. Once the mascara is saturated with water, the adhesiveness becomes neutralized and allows for the mascara to slide off effortlessly, leaving no tint or residue behind. blinc mascara does not have the penetrative effects of oil-based paint-based mascaras, which allow for impurities to build up at the root of the lash. Furthermore, blinc Mascara does not require the use of a harsh eye make-up remover, which can lead to eye irritation and redness.
Is it safe for sensitive eyes, contact lens & eyeglass wearers?
blinc mascara appeals to many with sensitive eyes, contact lens and eyeglass wearers. Since blinc mascara is not an oil-based paint, it does not run, smear, flake or penetrate the skin like traditional oil-based paint mascaras. For this reason, the chances for eye irritation and/or infection are greatly reduced. A lot of irritations occur due to a mascara flaking into the eye, blinc does not flake. In addition, due to blinc's revolutionary removal method, harmful excessive rubbing and harsh eye makeup removers are no longer accomplices to eye irritation. And because blinc does not smudge or smear, eyeglass wearers can be relieved to know that no mascara will be painting their glasses.
Does it add volume and length to the lashes?
Absolutely. Since it forms a tube around each lash, it amplifies both the lash's volume and length for a radiant natural look. Many women also apply a few additional strokes to the very tip of the lashes to add some extension. Have fun and experiment with different application methods!
Will it bunch up my lashes?
No. However, it needs to be applied correctly. Simply use blinc's lash brush and apply the mascara with a series of at least five strokes to ensure that the lashes are well separated. Then let the mascara set for two to three minutes without touching them.
Can I swim while I have blinc mascara on?
Many women do without a problem. However, please be aware that at such a high level of water saturation, the mascara will slide off with the slightest touch or pressure. The good news is, if you lose a few "tubes", you lose them like you would lose a piece of jewelry - it just comes off, without having to worry about a face full of mascara!
How long does one bottle of blinc mascara last?
That depends on the frequency of use, but it is recommended to replace your mascara every three months. Take into consideration that blinc does not flake off, so you no longer need to re-apply during the day, which means you will use less mascara. This should translate to a tube of blinc lasting longer than your current mascara. Other hygiene tips include: not sharing your mascara with anyone, re
