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?

How long does one bottle of blinc mascara last?

What if I cry?
Crying does not produce enough water to loosen blinc mascara's adhesion to your lashes.
