Hold on to your lashes ladies and gentlemen, because with this specially formulated mascara they are about to take flight! According to the company, "Blinc Mascara is the original mascara invented to form tiny water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes rather than painting them like conventional mascaras." According to Allure magazine, "[Blinc is] the best beauty product you've never heard of."
Believe me, I have used every new "does it all" mascara and ended up unhappy, with racoon eyes! (Ugh!) All that has changed with Blinc Mascara; my favorite part about the product is actually what it DOESN'T do! It doesn' run, smudge, clump or flake. Of course, I also love the fact that I can create more volume and length with a water-resistant mascara!
Blinc Mascara specifically caters to senstive eyes, so even though I wear contact lenses and am very active, my mascara stays put and doesn't cause iritation. Real Simple magazine says that Blinc is "the best mascara for sensitive eyes."
The product is very easy to use, simply apply your preferrable number of coats to clean dry lashes until desired volume, length and separation is achieved! It is just as easy to remove, simply use lots of warm water with gentle pressure and the tubes of mascara will remove effortlessly- causing no damage to your lashes. I have had no trouble with applying Blinc and find it easiest if I wet my fingers with warm water to remove it.
Blinc Mascara is available in black, dark brown, medium brown, dark blue, dark purple and dark green. With such a variety of colors you are able to select one to emphasize your eyes. My personal favorite is the blue, because it is new and different, but not scary or crazy! When I am going for a night out I typically apply three coats of my Dark Blue Blinc Mascara for a more dramatic and bold look!

Ever feel like you are overwhelmed with mountains of products on your bathroom counter? Of course, they all do something “different” or “special” and yet you still can’t find that go-to, always does the trick product… Well, things are about to change because I have gotten my hands on one of the most versatile products on the market! Not to mention it is all organic, natural and color protective! As a licensed cosmetologist that sees several heads of hair throughout the week, I can guarantee that this product is unlike any other professional sculptant out there. What’s it called, you ask? Taffy Whip! Taffy Whip is a Carmel Sculptant that is made up of shitake mushrooms, corn starch fibers and vegetable oil. And the fun is not only in the name, you actually have fun applying it too! It only takes a pea-sized amount in the palm of your hand to start working its magic, simply rub your hands together to emulsify the product and literally start clapping it out over your head! You will notice that, due to the fibers in the product, the Surface Taffy Whip actually spreads out over the hair and cascades on to each strand without “globbing” it into the hair! The mushrooms create a rubberized, weightless texture to the hair that enhances natural or thermal waves and curls and evens tames frizz. In addition, when the product is blow dried into the hair it interacts with the vegetable oil creating a smoothing serum to soften the hair while maintaining style memory and hold! I have found this product to work wonders on all hair textures from fine to coarse, short to long, men or women! Taffy Whip by www.SurfaceHair.com is a must-have product and is available in Northern Virginia at Reflections of You Fairfax salon and spa. http://roysalon.com/
