Blink & Go Long Lasting Mascara

Monday, 28 May 2012

I am something of a mascara junkie and often have at least two or three on the go at any one time (I know that sounds a bit excessive but there is a method to madness, honest!). So I usually have to hand a simple one for everyday, a more dramatic/super volumising/super amazing one for going out etc, and a waterproof one in the summer months. 

Whilst my current HG mascara (Shiseido Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus) is waterproof, it's a pain in the ass to remove, so in this heatwave I've been mainly reaching for my trusty Blink & Go Long Lasting Mascara.



Packaging wise, this mascara comes in one hell of a big tube compared to the standard size of most other mascaras, but at least it's easy to find in your make-up bag!  The wand is quite a big brush which I'm not usually a fan of, but it is angled just right at the end, to make getting those little lashes properly coated a quick and simple job to do. 

Formula wise, it's beautifully pigmented and comes out a rich black.  It's a little on the wet side so you have to make sure it's fully dry before looking up, otherwise it will smudge everywhere.  However, once it has dried, this mascara will not budge AT ALL.  It lengthens really well too!

Some people find this quite stubborn to remove, but I press a cotton wool pad soaked in warm water onto my closed eye and hold it there for a few minutes.  This will remove most of it as it comes off in little solid pieces, rather than smearing everywhere.  Remove the rest with a good make-up remover and you're good to go.


Which waterproof mascara are you using in this heat?
