blinc Mascara Review

You know you’re a makeup junkie when you get terribly excited about mascara that comes in a tin tube! Doesn’t that just get your blood pumping? Or maybe that’s only my insanity but I’d like to think I’m not the only one around that runs around in circles when she sees interesting packaging concepts (if you don’t get excited just lie and say you do to make me feel better about it!).

blinc Mascara comes in this rather cute little tin with a screw top! Rather cute packaging for a mascara. Of course this isn’t the actual mascara it’s just the outer packaging doh!

Click it for the review!

blinc Mascara is probably the first “tube” mascara I ever used and if I think about it’s possibly the first of it’s kind on the market prior the the “tube” craze that hit the mascara market by storm earlier this year.

blinc Mascara gives both volume, length, and a natural look that lasts all day. As with most tube mascara it wraps each lash in a gentle formula that’s waterproof but manages to wash away simply with warm water and a bit of cleanser. It doesn’t fade, it doesn’t fake or cake or flake, and most importantly it doesn’t give you the look of a raccoon.

Pretty much anyone can use blinc mascara as it’s non irritating formula is gentle even for those with sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers.

The overall effect of the mascara isn’t very dramatic but it does perform decently and creates a nice, soft longer lash look, it’s a very natural look. Anyone who likes tube mascara would definitely enjoy this one.

(apologies for the blurry picture)

Who might like it?

  • Anyone who likes tube mascaras!
  • Those who want their mascara to remain on all day but come off easily at the end of a long day.
  • Anyone who likes fuller lashes with a more natural, softer look.

blinc Mascara is available at

Anyone try?

Love it?

    I tried it and like it but wish they made other colors besides black and brown. Would like to try other tubing mascaras.

    • the Muse

      mm I’m not too broken up about it robin as colored mascara kinda never shows up on my lashes 😛

    • Julia

      They do Blinc mascara in Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Blue, dark green & purple which is my fave!
      This is the best mascara I have EVER COME ACROSS!!!

  • Robin

    LOL, I understand. But I’m a white girl with green eyes, and like auburn and eggplant colored mascaras. Black is too harsh for me. I heard that Kevyn Aucoin has an auburn tubing mascara, but I am sorry but I am not paying $28 for something I’m supposed to throw away in three months anyway. Thanks for the reply.

    • the Muse

      hi robin sorry for the delayed reply..I’m kinda getting that way too…$28 is a bit high end especially since I’m anal about tossing it after 4 months of use 😛

    I really love this mascara. BUT the price and the fact it dries so quickly turns me off. But I do LOVE it

    I love this Blinc masacara! I have been using it for 5 years now, after being disappointed in waterproof mascara, and regular mascara. I like Lancome masacara…. but the price point is higher than I like to spend on mascara. Blinc is perfect for me, it washes off with water and cleanser, so need for yet another product to figure out and buy. It does not give me voluminous lashes, but, it does make them appear LONGER. So, in my makeup routine, which is a simple almost natural look, its very nice. And, I receive compliments on my long lashes, which is always nice to hear, especially since I’m at the age where lashes are getting thinner. I would recommend for someone who doesn’t like glumpy, spider-like lashes, that is easily removed, but only when cleansing.
