In July, I was fortunate to receive Beauty Box 5. Beauty Box 5 is a beauty sampling subscription that comes to your door every month.
This was my July 2012 Beauty Box 5. You can check out my post to see what I received and what I thought about this subscription. For this post, I am going to review the Blinc Eyeliner.
Product Review: Blinc Eyeliner Brush It On... Slide It Off! in Black

Where to purchase: Sephora stores, sephora.com, and blincinc.com
Price: $26 for 0.21 oz/ 6 g

Description on the back: Blinc's Eyeliner is the original eyeliner invented to form a water-resistant "layer of color" that contours your eyes. Since Blinc is not a cosmetic paint like conventional eyeliners, it cannot fade, smudge, run or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes.

The intense layer of color creates a dramatic look that lasts all day. Only when you are ready for removal, the layer of color will effortlessly slide off your skin into your hand without the use of a harsh makeup remover.

Ideal for those with sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, performers and active people in search of an eyeliner whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.
Thoughts: The first time I heard about this brand was from a pastor from my church. She mentioned it's the only eyeliner brand she uses and own every color. Other than that, I have never heard of this brand. When I saw the sample, 0.02 oz/ 0.7 g, I was pretty excited and curious to know why the pastor loves this brand.
The packaging of the sample did not blow me away. It just looks cheap.
The real packaging looks better. I actually like it.
Here's a picture of the brush. It's really thin and sturdy. It glides easily on the eyes.
A swatch of the eyeliner.
Here's how the eyeliner looks on me.

My overall opinion... I actually liked it but I wouldn't say it's the best. I like that it's easy to apply on the eyes, does not smudge, and easy to take off. I also like the thin, sturdy brush. The thing I don't like is small, but I don't like shiny eyeliners. It's just my personal taste. I tend to go for matte eyeliners. That's probably why I like cream/gel eyeliners. Other than that, this is a great eyeliner!

* Thin, sturdy brush.
* No makeup remover required.
* Applies easily on the skin.
* Does not smudge.

* Does not have a lot of varieties of colors; only have black, brown, and gray.
* Shiny eyeliner.

Would repurchase: Maybe.

you always get us interested in niche brands!
this liner looks great on you. i really like the clean definition.
i usually shy away from liquid since they are bit shinier than others (like you mentioned) but actually, i think this is not bad at all. ;)

Oh, you're like me!... hehe~ You should try their eye pencil. I heard the pencils don't smudge either.
