Sometimes waterproof mascaras just don’t cut it, right? I know for me, personally, I hate that some of them end up flaking into my eyes halfway through an event, which is the last thing I want when I’m at a wedding and trying to keep my makeup together from the inevitable onslaught of sentimental tears(yes, I’m one of those people who cries at weddings, whether I know the couple or not...like, every single one haha!). Not to mention how taking it off can be a huge pain in the booty and sometimes causes my own lashes to break or get yanked off during the removal process, amiright?
This is where a tubing mascara comes into play. What the heck is a tubing mascara?, you may be asking. Well, what a regular mascara does is coat your lashes in pigment, while a tubing mascara wraps each individual lash in water-resistant and tube-like polymers. The key benefits to tubing mascaras are that they don’t smudge, are super duper easy to remove, give you crazy good length and volume, aren’t going to damage your lashes, and will make them look better than ever!

- blinc Mascara by blinc - This fan favorite formula is one the list for many reasons, and perhaps a few of the top are that not only does it have an amazing water-resistant formula, but it also comes in 6 stunning and intense shades! It’s fragrance free as well as gluten free, which means those allergic to perfumes can use it without worry. It takes about 2 minutes to set, which means you have plenty of time to build to your desired volume and length without worrying about your lashes getting clumpy mid-application. However, it should be noted that you shouldn’t let it set before applying a second or third coat, so once you’re applying it, just keep going til you get ther! blinc Mascara $26 is available at www.blincinc.com
