I received my tube of Kiss Me Mascara about a week ago.,Thank You EDS for such an easy way to order and for the fast delivery. And the samples, well I never expected to receive so many. I loved them all!!!! The Kiss Me is an awesome product. I use it on my lower lashes and it stays all day. No smudging, no rub off, it just stays until you take it off. Just do not cry too much. I had a very bad experience last week and cried, well, then I had little tubes all over my face after I wiped my eyes. Just not a mascara to cry in. My eyes sometimes water a bit, that does not seem to effect the product.

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Blinc Mascara - Black (6 g / 0.21 oz)
Blinc Mascara - Black (6 g / 0.21 oz)

Formerly known as Kiss Me, blinc is the original mascara invented to form tiny water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. Once applied, these beauty 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 and then out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning.

I LOVE this mascara. I have it in dark brown and it truly does last, it separates nicely, and you can add as much as you want for a lighter or heavier look.

I have very dark, fairly full lashes, so I imagine this could have a much more dramatic effect on someone with lighter hair.

Terrific is right though...NOT a mascara to cry in. (Are there really any though?) Getting a little teary at movies is fine, but if you're going to have a sobbing hysterical fit you will get weird little flecks/tubes everywhere.

I don't wear mascara every day, but the only thing I would be concerned about is using a washcloth every time to remove it. I haven't tried using regular eye makeup remover since the instructions say to use warm water on a cloth--but it seems to tug a bit. Maybe I just need softer washcloths Confused

Oh! I'm also a contact wearer, and aside from the crying episode, I've had no problems with this flaking or coming off or irritating my eyes in any way.

This is like the 3rd time this week that someone has mentioned this mascara. It has got too be good!

I had just bought a different brand lately, but this is going on my must try list. Thanks for the review!

Tularyn, I Use a lot of water. I really saturate them before I try to remove it. When it is ready to come off it will start falling off on your fingers as you put water on your lashes.

I got this mascara a couple of weeks ago based on what I had read in this forum. I LOVE this stuff!!!

While it's not the most volumizing mascara I've ever used, I love the fact that it does NOT smudge, even with our hot, humid Georgia summer (and my oily eyelids). I'm hoping that using my Jan Marini eyelash treatment will make the volumizing less of an issue.

I went swimming in it last weekend with no problems. Just remember not to rub your eyes! I haven't cried with it on (yet Confused ), so maybe the saline in one's tears has a different effect? But I'm betting as long as you don't rub your eyes, it would stay put better.

I use a volumizing mascara over the top of Kiss me on my upper lashes when I want more volume. It works great and the mascara still comes off easily.

I wear it when I need a long lasting mascara and it's fabulous!

terrific, I use Kiss Me on top of my other mascara so that it wont smudge. If you happen to have the same problem as me with panda eyes, this is very helpful.

i used kiss me, i though it was terrible, absolutely no volume or fluffing like with a regular mascara.

DiorShow is by far my favorite.

I personally like this mascara because I am looking for a more 'natural' look instead of volume. I have tried many brands and ended up with 'Panda' eyes by mid-day - with the exception of a Japanese brand 'Covermark'. The Kiss Me mascara is better than Covermark in that it 'tubes' the lashes - not paints on them. And using it with the lash primer yields even better results.

The tubes and the water removal take a little getting used to, but it does last. I also sometimes use another mascara under or over, depending what I am doing.

Looks like I'm in the minority here but I don't like this mascara at all. Bought a tube about 18 months ago and have only used it maybe two or three times. Agreed, it has a nice glossy finish but I don't like the "removal process". I worry that pulling the tubes off will also pull out a lash or two. Maybe i'm doing something wrong?

Hi, did you try using a cotton pad soak in warm water? With a little pressure the tubes should come off quite easily. Then splash with running tap water.

Have you tried Dr. Hauschka mascara? It's very natural, easy to remove, but it doesn't smudge/flake throughout the day. I love it and keep meaning to do a review to tag onto Mabsy's. Although it's natural, it does still give my lashes great definition and they're always soft to the touch with it on.

I didn't use a cotton pad or warm water, just cold water. That's probably why the tubes didn't come off so easily. I'll give the warm water a try.

I saw the reviews here and it reminded me that I had a sample, so I decided to give it a try.

I wanted to wait till I had tried it at least 2x, and now I have...

I find this mascara takes longer to dry than I'm used to, so it ended up smearing when I blinked. While it goes on nicely, I didn't get any volume.

Both times i found my upper lashes getting tangled up with my lower ones when i blinked, so that it felt like my lashes were stuck together. Don't remember ever experiencing that before.

Since this comes off with water, it's not entirely waterproof. I found the process of removing it pretty easy (yes, used warm water), but as gentle as i felt I was being, I lost 1 lash the first time I removed, and 2 lashes the second time. Could be a coincidence.

The tubes that come off were cool, I have to say. But seeing how they don't disintegrate, I would be concerned with clogging the drain if I let them go down the sink.

im gonna have to go with the fact that im also in the minority category here as well- Its nice that this mascara stays on for a long time, but I don't think that it adds any volume or length to your lashes. I would prefer using a mascara that does THAT instead of the all in one, and then using something like the Laura Gellar sealer over my lashes to make sure that it stays on. Smile

I would have to agree with some others on this mascara. It is very hard to remove, and I find that it clumps up on my lashes.
I read a great review on EDS for Physicians Formula mascara in a tube and bought it at CVS for only $5.00. This mascara did lengthen and volumize my lashes as promised.

As i mentioned earlier, I didn't really like this mascara as I found it difficult to remove.

Have since bought Kevyn Aucoin The Mascara. At the time I ordered it, I didn't realise it was also the "tube" kind of mascara... if I had I probably wouldn't have ordered it. However, it comes off much easier than the Kiss Me, for me anyway. Also, I prefer the KA brush...it's one of those long thin straight types which makes it easier to get into the corners. Packaging is quite nice too, long thin red metallic case.

Will probably buy this again, although there will probably be something new I want to try by then Laughing

I have used the primer and Blinc mascara 2 or 3 times. I might use it for hot summer days specially if you are going to swim. Without the primer it does not provide enough of an effect for me. I don't known if I would buy it again, have to think about it. The mascara I use every day and really like is Loreal Volume Shocking. I've found that I don't need to use the primer that comes with this mascara. I love the aplicator which is a comb, separates the lashes really well and will not clump Smile

The Kiss Me Mascara is one of the few products I've used for quite some time. It works well for me, doesn't clump,good but not great enhancer, most important the raccoon eyes are gone. I must use warm water and a nice cleanser, but then the product removes easily from my eyes. Besides I do this anyway before bed, so no biggie!
