The best mascara for teens is one that will keep their lashes looking long and thick without clumping or smudging. It should also be easy to apply and remove, and it should be gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.
Over the years I noticed something else - my lashes are the longest they've been since I began wearing makeup as a teen. I think conventional mascaras desiccate the lash, and for whatever reason, this product does not. ...Fiber mascaras...I've always been into asian fiber mascaras. I have super oily eyelids and any other mascara I use smears.
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.
