How to apply mascara

1 Aug

You may think you know how to apply mascara, but according to blinc mascara…this is not the case.

I got a tube of blinc mascara in July’s birchbox.  I was interested in trying it out.  Blinc is a tube mascara.  So instead of just “painting” on mascara, blinc creates tubes around your lashes.  I’ve seen the commercials for the other tube mascara’s.  How they separate and define your lashes, all things I like.

First off, read the directions…

For just a tube of mascara there are 7 directions they suggest you follow!  Some I didn’t follow because they pertained to things I don’t do, like curl my eyelashes.  One direction is to use the mascara on clean dry lashes with no moisturizers.  Now, I don’t know about you, but when getting myself ready for the day I put on moisturizer first.  Putting on moisturizer after I put on mascara seems counterintuitive…  Anyway, I just made sure I wiped off my lashes. 

Step one is to hold the wand horizontal to the lashes, that I can do.

After applying the first coat you are supposed to apply a second or third coat…


I don’t know if I see that big a difference between one coat and two, but I do like that the lashes are defined.

Okay, now that the mascara is applied, blinc suggests you do not touch your eyelashes for one minute, lest they smudge…

I do think that I like blinc and I’m glad I got it in a sample.  Time will tell if I want to buy a new tube. 

In order to take off blinc, do not use eye makeup remover!  Blinc directs you to use plenty of warm water and to not pull on your eyelashes.  You pretty much are saturating your eyelashes in order for the tubes to slide off.  When I removed the mascara the first time it took a little bit in order for them to come off effortlessly.  I had to keep splashing my eyes in order to get enough warm water for them to come off.

Overall, I like blinc…so far.  Like I said I’ll keep wearing it and testing it out to see how I really feel. 

Lastly, since it is Julia Child’s 100th birthday…a little music…
