BELLE SPOTLIGHT

I'm a beauty junkie and have a lot of go-to favourites but I gush to people about my love of Blinc Kiss Me Mascara just about every chance I get. I can honestly say it's one of the products I couldn't live without. Blinc is a tube-technology water-resistant mascara that is absolutely astonishing. Once applied, the mascara forms tiny water-resistant tubes around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold, rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. The tubes bind to your lashes and can't run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes. As someone who wears contacts, this is amazing! In the past, even when using water-proof mascara, I would always get black smudge marks under my eyes after removing my make-up/mascara and when removing my contacts I'd always get black on the lenses. This problem is non-existent with Blinc.

What's cool about the mascara is that neither water nor pressure alone will remove it. Only the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure will slide the tubes easily from your lashes. Once it's removed you'll actually see the tiny tubes in your hand. It's an amazing technology and if anyone is getting married anytime soon (Jolene & Jessica - this post is for you) it's the perfect cry-resistant no-smudge mascara!

  3. Just seeing this now! While I'm a little weirded out about the fact it comes off in tube formation, I can't not try it. Need a Sephora stop in asap to pick it up. PS - Still not impressed with the Smashbox primer. Think I'll give your reco a shot.
