Beauty Box 5 Product Review
Blinc Eyeliner in Black
Part 4 of a 6 Part Series
Here we are with the fourth installment of my six part individual beauty product review of Beauty Box 5. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription program that sends you 4 or 5 samples of beauty products from a wide range of brands. Each box costs $12 per month and ships in the middle of the month.

The next item I want to tell you about is this great liquid eyeliner made by blinc. The blinc mission is to “introduce safe and exceptional beauty products that redefine the way they should be made, applied and perform.” The private owned American company is also actively involved in contributing to many meaningful organizations such as The American Cancer Society, Children International, Doctors Without Borders and many more. blinc is unique in that they take ordinary beauty product ideas and transform them into something even better. They offer a fabulous selection of eyeliners, mascaras, eyebrow mousse and more. You can see all their offered products as well as learn a lot more on their website http://www.blincinc.com/.
I received a sample of their eyeliner in black. It is a liquid liner, and they claim it will not smear, smudge, fade, flake or come off unless you use the right combination of warm water and gentle pressure. It is not waterproof, but instead is water-resistant. It is especially ideal for people who have sensitive eyes, wear contacts or want an eyeliner that will fit an active lifestyle.
I usually use a pencil liner when I do my eyes, so this was a different, but not new, experience for me. Since it had been awhile since I used a liquid eyeliner, my hand was not very steady at first, so I had a chance to see whether or not it would smear by trying to rub it off. It did at first, but as it dried, I could no longer rub it off. So after washing it off, like they said with warm water and gentle pressure, I tried again. The second time around I had better luck. The applicator made controlling it very easy since it was shorter than other liquid liner applicators I had used in the past. The fact that the brush part was so fine and pointed also added to the ease of application. I was able to draw a very precise line around my top lid and below my eye, giving my eye more definition. And let me tell you, the black color eyeliner, it is very black! All in all, counting the fact that I am in no way a makeup artist, I though it looked okay! After a few minutes,I again decided to test the no smudge, no smear theory, and it proved true. I wore the eyeliner through out the day, and at no point did I need to reapply, as the color did not even fade a tiny bit. Nor did it flake or come off the few times I caught myself rubbing my eyes.
When it came time to remove the eyeliner, nothing could have been simpler! I just used some warm water on my washcloth and gently wiped it over the liner, and it was instantly gone. I did not have to use any soap, nor rub over it repeatedly. It was just as the package said, it was like it literally “slid”off my skin! I was amazed!
My opinion? A must for anyone who wants a bold eyeliner that is easy to apply, will last all day and is a cinch to remove! You can easily find blinc products online, on their website HERE, and while they are a bit pricey, I think it is well worth it because the quality is so good. This eyeliner is available in black, brown, blue and gray, and it sells for $26.00.
