The Best Packaging!
On my mission to bring people lovely cruelty free cosmetics, I am grateful to have the opportunity to show you Blinc Mascara*. This particular mascara was greeted with an 'oooooh'
because the mascara comes in a tin cylinder with a screw top. I thought that was pretty neat.
First lets talk about the Blinc Lash Primer. This lash primer was created to condition, strengthen and voluminous. I put one coat of this on and let it dry for about five minutes. The formula feels thicker than the Mascara to wear and it was a tad uneasy to apply (however I have never worn a lash primer in my life.) As I applied this I noticed that my lashes were looking longer and fuller, I could only imagine what they would look like with a coat of Mascara on them. The liquid is white and remains that colour even when dried, so I suppose if I wanted to use this as a treatment it would have to be at bedtime. I have noticed a dramatic difference that this primer makes as a base coat because my lashes were longer and very defined. I must say that I am intrigued with this primer, I have never used one but I can see that it works. I will be experimenting with this for a while
This Mascara is worth getting excited for! OK so a couple of things first, with the primer on my eyelashes I felt that I had to work quickly or my eyelashes would clump. Not so. I feel this Mascara is more suited for lengthening and I don't usually reach for lengthening ones. Blinc Mascara is invented to form water resistant 'tubes' around your lashes, without smudging, running or flacking even when your crying or rubbing your eyes. Well, of course I had to try it out. I grabbed me a wet tissue and somewhat gave my eyes a decent rub. Guess what? No smudging. I was pleased and shocked and intrigued all at the same time, I went one step further and started to take it off with a tissue wet with water. I gently put my fingers at the base of my lashes and pulled to the tip, and the Mascara came off cleanly and didn't leave nasty clumps on my eyelids. I really am pleased as punch with this Mascara, it was a clean removal and because I was wearing the Lash Primer as well I honestly feel like my eyelashes are conditioned. What a pleasant surprise this mascara is!
The Primer brush is a lot thicker than the Mascara brush, I'm guessing because the formula is a lot thicker and precision isn't very important when applying Primer. The twisted Mascara brush is a lot thinner so this allows those little lashes in the corner to be reached.
