My fave...Love it...Good definition for everyday wear...For me, this mascara formula is not as volumizing as I would expect for a "false lash effect" however I do like the definition that it gives.
What it is:
A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for an "out-of-here" look—now available in three vibrant shades.

What it does:
This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had! The specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you’ll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out.

What else you need to know:
Go horizontal: the staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume.
Then go vertical: the custom-domed tip with precision bristles lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes.

This product is an Allure Reader’s Choice award winner.

the best...Love it!...Not my favorite for adding volume but it is quite lengthening and defining, which makes it good for a natural everyday look....Not only did I get chunks I had to pick off with my fingers, I also had to use a lash separator brush to keep them from looking like spider lashes (which may be a plus if you like that sort of thing).

What else you need to know:
Velvet Noir is inspired by Marc Jacobs’s first beauty memory of his mother carefully shaving fibers from a velvet ribbon to create her own couture faux lashes.

"I have some very fond memories of watching my mother do her makeup before she’d go out on a date. I could sit there for hours and watch her as she would choose her clothes and put her makeup on. She’d take a piece of black velvet ribbon and she would scrape it with a knife so she could take the pile from the black velvet to make the lashes even thicker and clumpier."—Marc Jacobs

Love It...Love it....One of my favorites is smokey lash by make up forever, but I am working in a place where I use a microscope and look down a lot, which can cause smudging with all mascaras except waterproof, which I hate because the formula is never the same and I lose lashes getting it off....I've been using Blinc Kiss Me mascara for a few years now, and I still love it as much as I did when I discovered it!
What it is:
An innovative, water-resistant mascara with tube-technology for maximum hold.

What it does:
Blinc Mascara is the original tube-technology mascara. It's invented to form tiny water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold, rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. Once applied, the tubes bind to your lashes and don't run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes.

What else you need to know:
This mascara adds both volume and length, to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day. Neither water nor pressure alone will remove Blinc Mascara. Only the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure (no need for harsh makeup removers) will slide the tiny tubes effortlessly off your lashes into your hand. Upon removal, you will actually see the tiny tubes slide into your hand.

Blinc Mascara has been clinically tested to be non-irritating, making it ideal for sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold, and ease of removal is without compromise.
