Blinc shares: How to Keep your cosmetics fresh and clean on the beach

With the summer weather already upon us, fashionistas everywhere are gearing up for another season of fun times on the beach. While many females wouldn’t dream about wearing eye makeup and mascara on the beach, you can create a ravishing combination for a day on the sand with some creative tricks and eye makeup primers.

While waterproof mascara may seem like the best option for a beach retreat, in many ways it can look too thick and will take too much effort to remove at the end of the day. By combining some water-resistant mascara with a muted shade of colorful eyeshadow, you can create an enchanting look for the beach.

Instead of skipping the allure of mascara when you hit the beach, give blinc’s water-resistant mascara a try this season. It uses an innovative tubing formula that will encase your lashes for the ultimate smudge-proof hold, even when you rub your eyes. It can be removed at the end of the day with some warm water and a simple scrub and is ideal for those with sensitive eyes, contact lens-wearers and active individuals.

Formerly known as Kiss Me, blinc is the original mascara invented to form tiny water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes rather than painting them like conventional mascaras. Once applied, these beauty tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes. Whether your daily activities take you from the office, to your sweaty workout and then out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning.

blinc mascara will add volume and length to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day. Only when you are ready for removal, the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes into your hand without the use of a harsh makeup remover.
Blinc is better than waterproof mascaras. All it takes is the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure (i.e. shower) and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly. Upon removal you will actually see the tiny beauty tubes in your hand!
blinc mascara has been clinically tested to be non-irritating making it ideal for sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.

FIRST LOOK at Heidi Klum’s debut fragrance!

Heidi Klum, supermodel, mom, designer and ‘Project Runway’ host has created her first fragrance.

The 38-year-old’s signature fragrance is an oriental scent made of pink peppercorn, pear and mandarin, with hints of a mimosa absolute, sunflower, and lily of the valley heart; and musk cosmone, vanilla and Venezuelan tonka bean drydown.

That’s a mouthful!

“There are different moods that as a fragrance creator you can travel to,” Klum told WWD. “But for my first one, I wanted what I felt my staple would be. I wanted it to be sensual and feminine, but still luxurious and expensive-smelling – because I think there are so many perfumes out there that smell cheap and too sweet.”

The perfume is poured into a gold bottle with a clear, rounded wavy base, and the not too retouched ad campaign features Klum with a glimmer of light reflecting onto her wind-blown, blond strands as she gazes seductively at the camera.

“You can sell a dream, and you can sell a lifestyle that a woman aspires to have, but you can’t completely trick her,” Klum explained to WWD. “If people retouch me too much, I get upset – yes, you can help me out a little here and there, but don’t go overboard. I have one tooth that’s longer than another, and if you look at the [Shine] ad my snaggletooth is coming out a little bit – but I like that.”

Shine ($17 – $35) will debut in September.

I have to smell it – just to see how the heck they’re going to put all those scents together!
