No, hang on, will find a link (its not cheap but it lasts for 24 hours when applied properly, and stays on even whilst swimming/in a sauna etc).

Will update post with link in a minute.

That's a link to the kit, you can buy it all seperately, I went for the kit. The neutral lipstick and mascara is good too, so unlikely to go to no use (I love the lipstick, and the mascara is in my travel make up bag).

I use Blinc tubed mascara. Have a google, I can only find their US site though (I used to buy it when I lived in the UK) but they used to give away free samples of it.

To keep your lippy on for hours, after blotting go over it with an eyeshadow - matt or shimmery. I can't use things like Lipcote as they aggravate my lips and make my coldsores flare up .
Me too, I use Blinc, they have a UK site and it's sold on Feel Unique. Best thing ever! I recently got Blinc AMPLIFIED which is even better than the original.

Thanks for that.

I have bought the revlon one and thought Id give it a go, maybe the beautiful brows can be a valentines present, Ill drop some hints.

and as promised my report on the mascara ...

The loreal tubing mascara is AMAZING!
it went on so easy and has definitely made my lashes look longer, it has also kept the curl from the eyelash curlers all day I would recommend any one who is intrigued to give it a go.
Thanks Fieldfare for the recommendation.

Is this mascara waterproof - I am allergic to any waterproof mascaras and it will be a while before I can get to the shops to check it out. Thanks anyone

Hooray! It's great when a little treat comes off isn't it? I've got plenty left but I really want to try the Blinc now, I'm going to have to put it on the list after the brow kit.

I think so but to be honest I haven't really tested that. Certainly when taking it off a splash of water doesn't shift it, I need to use a cleanser and a soft cloth.

I did that a few days ago! Only took one day to arrive which is fantastic!

Anyway, came on here to ask if you can still use eyelash curlers with tubing mascara but Chocoholic has already answered!

Will post results of trial later.

Hope it went ok.

Ive actually ordered a trial sample of the mascara from blinc to give that a go and I have ordered the eyeliner trial size as well.

I use soap and glory supercat eyeliner at the moment which is fantastic but I am intrigued by the blinc eyeliner as its the same theory as the tubing mascara.
Does anyone use this ?

Right, trial size Blinc mascara. Short review.

1. Goes on very well. Quite a loose mixture. Not sticky.

2. No clumps at all.

3. Lengthens well

4. Not as black as I'm used too

5. Not as thickening as I'm used to

6. Hasn't budged all day

Would I buy a bigger size. DEFINATELY.

I've never heard of tubing mascara but I'm going to have to try this. It sounds a bit freaky but I'm so bored with my make-up collection, I'll give it a go.

Does anyone have any tips for how to apply liquid eyeliner? I love this look so much but when I try and do it I just end up looking like I've punched myself.

Its just practice to be honest, but have a look on youtube there are lots of videos of people showing you how

Sorry to always be harking on about Sali Hughes but she does beauty advice so well, try this video, it's about getting a flicky look but has some good general tips -

If you go for a bigger size, get the amplified one, the brush is thicker and you'll get thicker lashes.

I have to use Blinc/tubes as every other normal mascara basically slides off my lashes and ends up under my eye!

Thank you so much, great video! Interesting what she said about the eyeliner smudging up near the eyebrow, that's exactly what happens to me, although I'm not over 30, I think it's because I've got really oily skin. Never used an eye primer before so I'll definitely be doing that. She makes it look so easy!

well I received my trial size mascara and eye liner yesterday so very quick delivery from blinc, I like the mascara but I think I do like the loreal one more, I like the white base coat of the loreal one it seemed to make my lashes longer and thicker, perhaps the amplify blinc may be better but I'm happy with the loreal mascara.

The eye liner is very good though, it was a bit tricky applying because of the small trial size bottle but it went on very well, really smooth nice consistency and it has lasted all day no smudging or flaking off, Ive had a bit of a cry today over something and it didnt budge!

also in the package I received with the trial packs I got a 20% off code if I purchase a full size bottle so thats pretty good too!

Thank you so much FieldFare for the recommendation

Use concealer in the right areas, most people need in the middle of the chin, around the eyes obviously and around the side of the nose. Make sure you spend time finding the right colour, if it's hard you can always buy different ones and mix them with a brush.

When you get a tan - darken your make up accordingly. I find it so funny when a woman/girl is seven shades darker in the summer and never thinks that their eyeshadow etc. needs to be altered accordingly.
