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