Blinc's Mascara Amplified is one of those mascaras that claims to form tubes around each individual eyelash, buildable, lengthening--yada, yada, yada… You know what? It's true.
I really, really like this mascara. It's lives up to almost all of its claims. It is buildable because the formula isn't too wet, so it can be re-applied. It doesn't run or clump. Unlike so many tubular mascaras, it doesn't flake or smudge. Amazingly, the fibers don't gunk up the long, full brush. The brush is firm enough so that the formula spreads over the lashes evenly--leaving them noticeably longer but not so long that I look like I'm headed to the club.
And taking it off? No big deal, at all. Warm water and a little pressure and the tubes just slide off the lashes. The only drawback is that when it is removed, it leaves a little residue, little flecks of black, on my face. I fixed this by going back over my lashes with a cotton swab and a bit of remover. My favorite way to use Blinc's formula is to apply it over a regular, volumizing formula. This way I get the volume of a regular formula with the lengthening of the tubes.
Bottom Lash Line: Blinc's Mascara Amplified is an overall winner. Bonus?? Blinc is cruelty free. Win and win. You can read a previous review on Blinc's non-Amplified mascara here.
