I have seen this mascara and I am really interested in trying it. I usually use Lancome Hypnose and it gives good volume, definition and length, but the Kiss Me sounds great.

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.

Hi Davina,

Welcome to the forum. Yes, I believe a few people here have tried it (myself included). Here's a previous thread about it http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=3670 Wink

I've never tried this product, but the idea of the little 'tubes' kind of bother me. Do they ever get stuck on -- or caught in your eye? Eek!

haha, It was Mabsy that described the tubes, and I have to agree with her...

No never get stuck on, and dont go in your eyes, and believe me I have sensitive eyes!

I use this mascara RELIGIOUSLY now. I do have to say that it's not the best lengthening I've tried, nor is it the best thickening or curling in the market, but it is the BEST when it comes to ease of removal, which is why I like it, and it never ever smears or runs or makes me look like I have raccoon eyes mid-way through the day, which almost every other brand I've tried has.
When you remove, you just splash your eye area with water several times and they eventually just kind of slide off, so I find make-up removal at night a much less "intense" experience than it used to be!

Hi,

This is my HG mascara. I have used it for years. I will tell you though that after using it for so long my eyelashes would fall out in certain places. It was pretty noticeable and took a while for them to grow back. I had to switch mascaras from time to time, but always go back to Kiss Me.

I have been wearing this mascara for several years now. It is my offical "summertime" mascara. I don't have to worry about it running if I go into the pool. I use to come out with racoon eyes when I didn't wear KMM. It truly is a holy grail mascara for me. Very Happy

sliding out in tubes annoys me, I would much rather it gets wash away like the normal, just so I don't get clue like streaks sticking below my eyes when I try to wash them off. Good thing is this mascara does the job nicely, and never runs.

It's very good for staying in place but like most mascara if you rub your eye some will come off, it will look like something has flaked rather than giving you panda eyes. It also applies nicely and doesn't seem to clot like others do. I use the purple.

I found it just a easy to remove as regular mascara.

I didn't like that either but I have now changed the way that I remove it. I take one of those cotton squares and soak it in warm water, fold it in half between my fingers and then grab my eyelashes in between the folded halves. Wait for about 10 seconds so the lashes get soaked and then gently pull off. All the tubes end up lined up on the cotton square and I don't have any on my face. It ends up being faster this way as well Wink

This is THE MOST AWESOME mascara I have ever tried. I had been a die-hard fan of Dior's Cashmere mascara, which was pulled a year or two ago and have been in mascara hell ever since.

I got the brown in my last EDS order just for the fun of it after reading people's comments here. It is the most stay-put non-waterproof mascara ever.

I am one of the lucky ones with great eyelashes; nice curl, nice thickness, and really long. In fact my lower lashes are so long that I have not worn mascara on them for yeras and years. I hate waterproof mascaras and regular ones leave me with Panda eyes quick as a wink as my lower lashes touch my skin when I look down or put on a big grin.

BUT I survied a full 12-hour day at the office wearing KISS ME on upper and lower lashes and not one spec of Panda in sight.

I love how it just comes off when I wash my face - although the first time I forgot I had used it - being so used to regular wash off mascaras - and after I patted my face dry and turned to find little "worms" all over my face. I nearly died of fright Laughing But if I remember, they just wash off so easily with water and I dont have any problem.

I will never buy another brand again. I think I will try another color with my next EDS order too! IT

I tried it when I had eyelash extensions for that's what they recommended with it. I liked it, comes off very easily.

I like this mascara, it obviously dosent smear and looks good all day. For the price the tube seems to last a long time and mine never dried out, not even almost a year later.
My only issue is Im not crazy about the brush and the formula doesnt add volume and thickness...the solution? Use a small brush like maybelline lash exact and if you want more volume add a lash primer or thin coat of another mascara underneath!
The tubes take some getting used to, but to keep your lashed from falling out dont pull the tubes off, if you just press gently on the base they should slide off themselves, also use a lash conditioner nightly.

i am not much of a mascara girl, but this product has me intrigued. what is this tube stuff? sounds crazy, but in a good way! Laughing. i also love colored mascara but the one i tried from avon--a bright pool green made me look like a clown. from Mabsy's review it sounds like the colors are subtle, so that should be nice.

does anyone know if this is the same company that makes kiss me sunkiller?

Is it like Model Co's one? I think the tube ones stay on all day, can be a bugger to get off (you sort of peel them off) but the effect is very good.

skincareaddicted - it's done by Blinc, but I'm not sure if Blinc also do Sunkiller sunblocks. The mascara basically forms a coat around your lashes. You take it off with warm water and this results in little tubes sliding off Smile It's a good mascara and doesn't come off until you want it to.

Emma - I didn't realise that Model Co had a similar concept. But I do know that Mirenesse have a mascara like this. The Blinc is better but the Mirenesse has improved recently.

Mabsy - I think it the Lashcara one.
I've never used it but they mention it on vogue now and then.

It is not my favorite mascara but it is great for summer. I agree with Mabsy, using cotton pads and gently pressing on lashes is the best method for removal Very Happy

I quite like this mascara. But I have quite long eyelashes anyway so don't want them much longer, just curly and it does nothing for that compared to for example the Trish McEvoy curling mascara I use.
