Tub­ing mas­cara: What is it and do you need one?

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Beauty Bites -

Tub­ing mas­cara has been around for quite some time, but since very few beauty brands use the not-so-pretty word on their pack­ag­ing, beauty buffs have been left none the wiser. So, what ex­actly is it?

In­stead of us­ing waxes and oils in the for­mula like reg­u­lar prod­ucts, tub­ing mas­cara is ef­fec­tively a poly­mer that coats lashes evenly and rather than build­ing up a coloured paste, wraps tightly around them for pre­ci­sion.

Smooth to ap­ply and great for adding length, the tub­ing holds its own all day long just like wa­ter­proof mas­cara, how­ever, it won’t dry your lashes out or be a real has­sle to re­move.

Not only do the for­mu­las cre­ate a smooth, pig­mented sur­face, they’re also wa­ter sol­u­ble. So while sweat or tears won’t budge it, all it takes is a warm damp cloth to cause the tubes to swell and rinse off.

They’re also a great op­tion for those whose sen­si­tive un­der­eye ar­eas can re­act to the residue so many of us ex­pe­ri­ence through­out the day. This is sim­ply be­cause tub­ing mas­cara does not lake, also mak­ing it a must-have al­ter­na­tive for

those who wear con­tacts.
