Blinc Black Mascara Amplified
After almost a decade in development, blinc mascara AMPLIFIED provides incredible, buildable, glamorous volume and length, all while offering the same smudge-proof, sweat-proof, water-resistant, flake-proof properties of our original blinc mascara.
As with our original blinc mascara, mascara AMPLIFIED coats lashes with a glossy, volumizing and extending coat that forms tiny water resistant "tubes" around each lash. This tubular mascara allows you the ability to add as many coats as you want to build your desired look! Apply our lash primer or black lash primer prior to mascara for an even more dramatic look!
Removing blinc mascara AMPLIFIED is just as easy, and requires no makeup remover. Simply apply a little warm water along with some gentle pressure, and the tubes easily slide of your lashes. You will actually see the tiny tubes in your hand as blinc mascara AMPLIFIED comes off without leaving any messy black tint or residue behind.

Use blinc mascara AMPLIFED on clean and dry lashes. Try not to use any moisturizers on your face before you apply the mascara since the oil may reduce the mascara's hold on the lash.
If you curl your lashes or if you use a lash primer, be sure to do so only before applying blinc mascara AMPLIFED. The tubes that blinc mascara AMPLIFED forms around your lashes will act like a "cast", holding your curl longer, as opposed to weighing your lashes down like conventional mascaras.
Twirl the wand inside the mascara tube to coat the lash. Hold the wand horizontally and start at the base of the lashes and go right to the tips. Wiggle the wand slightly from side to side as you apply the mascara. For the lower lashes some prefer to hold the wand vertically and gently apply the mascara lash by lash, while others lightly sweep across the lashes.
Keep brushing blinc mascara AMPLIFED on until you have achieved the desired degree of lash separation, volume and length. You can build on additional volume by applying as many coats as you wish. For additional length, focus on the tips of the lashes with a few strokes of the mascara wand. Now you can get on with your day without worrying about runny mascara.
Once you have finished applying blinc mascara AMPLIFED close the bottle tightly. Make sure no mascara is left on the neck or opening of the bottle before closing it. Any residual mascara left on the opening or the neck of the bottle can lead to difficulties reopening the mascara bottle or even damage the bottle upon reopening. Be sure to clean off the bottle neck and opening of any residual mascara before you close it.
Neither water alone nor pressure alone will remove blinc mascara AMPLIFED. Only the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure (ie: shower), will slide the tiny tubes effortlessly off of your lashes and into your hand. You will start to feel blinc mascara AMPLIFED become saturated as its grip on the lashes loosens. Keep applying more warm water until the tiny tubes that were formed around your lashes begin to slide off effortlessly (not: do not pull your lashes).
Those little "tubes" you see in the sink are not your lashes; they are the mascara that encased your lashes sliding off. Do not try to use any makeup removers or lotions to remove the mascara since they will not be as effective as simply combining water and pressure.

I don't understand how blinc mascara is water resistant, yet it only comes off with the use of water?
Neither water nor friction alone is enough to remove blinc mascara amplified. It is only when the two are combined that the mascara can be removed. By simply washing your face and applying gentle pressure to the lashes, the tubes that were formed will easily slide off. Water loosens the mascara's adhesion to the lashes, but it still takes the gentle pressure to remove the tubes. As an example of how much pressure is required, taking a shower should provide enough for blinc to slide off your lashes.
Can I use my regular make-up remover to take it off?
The only thing that will effectively remove the mascara is water and pressure. Using cleansing milks or eye make-up removers may or may not work.
Furthermore, they do not help the health of your eyes, so why use them?
The purpose of creating blinc was to avoid harmful makeup removers, as well as rubbing the part of the face most susceptible to wrinkling.
Will I damage or pull out my lashes when I am removing blinc mascara?
No. Once the mascara is saturated with water, the adhesiveness becomes neutralized and allows for the mascara to slide off effortlessly, leaving no tint or residue behind. blinc mascara amplified does not have the penetrative effects of oil-based paint-based mascaras, which allow for impurities to build up at the root of the lash. Furthermore, blinc mascara amplified does not require the use of a harsh eye make-up remover, which can lead to eye irritation and redness.
Is it safe for sensitive eyes, contact lens & eyeglass wearers?
blinc mascara amplified appeals to many with sensitive eyes, contact lens and eyeglass wearers. Since blinc mascara amplified is not an oil-based paint, it does not run, smear, flake or penetrate the skin like traditional oil-based paint mascaras. For this reason, the chances for eye irritation and/or infection are greatly reduced. A lot of irritations occur due to a mascara flaking into the eye, blinc does not flake. In addition, due to blinc's revolutionary removal method, harmful excessive rubbing and harsh eye makeup removers are no longer accomplices to eye irritation. And because blinc does not smudge or smear, eyeglass wearers can be relieved to know that no mascara will be painting their glasses.
Does it add volume and length to the lashes?
Absolutely. Since it forms a tube around each lash, it amplifies both the lash's volume and length for an everyday glam look. You can add as many coats as you would like of blinc mascara amplified to build the look that you desire.
Can I swim while I have blinc mascara on?
Many women do without a problem. However, please be aware that at such a high level of water saturation, the mascara will slide off with the slightest touch or pressure. The good news is, if you lose a few "tubes", you lose them like you would lose a piece of jewelry - it just comes off, without having to worry about a face full of mascara!
How long does one bottle of blinc mascara last?
That depends on the frequency of use, but it is recommended to replace your mascara every three months. Take into consideration that blinc does not flake off, so you no longer need to re-apply during the day, which means you will use less mascara. This should translate to a tube of blinc lasting longer than your current mascara. Other hygiene tips include: not sharing your mascara with anyone, removing your mascara every night prior to sleeping, and closing the bottle tightly after use.

Is it waterproof?
No. It's better!

Ophthalmologists agree that women should avoid wearing daily mascaras that require makeup removers. blinc mascara provides superior hold than most waterproof mascaras, yet only requires water and gentle pressure for the tiny water resistant tubes to slide off the lashes upon removal.
What if I cry?
Crying does not produce enough water to loosen blinc mascara's adhesion to your lashes. Even if you did happen to cry enough tears it would not be enough to remove blinc's tubes, since they require the combination of water and slight pressure. With the combination of enough water and slight pressure, the tiny tubes slide off leaving no residue or tint behind! You can easily wipe the tiny tubes away, as you would a grain of sand on your face. You will not have to worry about having a face full of running mascara, or those infamous "raccoon eyes" since this is not possible with blinc mascara!

Should I curl my lashes before or after I use blinc?
Understanding that your lashes will always fight back to get to their original form, most oil-paint based mascara's help the process, as the mascara weighs down the curl. If you curl your lashes first, and then apply blinc mascara amplified, the tiny tubes that form around the curled lash act like a cast, keeping the curled form longer.
