Tubing Mascara: What Is It? And Is It Good for Redheads?

Sneak Peek of the new Finally Have Lashes is below too!

When it comes to lashes, mascara isn’t one type fits all. There are various types of mascara, including lengthening, volumizing, curling, and waterproof. Lengthening mascara extends lashes, volumizing adds thickness, curling provides lift, and waterproof mascara resists smudging. Specialty mascaras, like tubing mascara, also exist for unique benefits. Tubing mascara can be great for adding length, but it has its downsides and some of them specifically affect redheads. Let’s discuss. 

What is tubing mascara?

Tubing mascara is a type of mascara that forms tiny tubes around each lash. These tubes create a water-resistant and smudge-proof barrier, offering long-lasting wear and easy removal with warm water. Regular mascara is made of wax and silicone, but tubing mascara is made of water-soluble polymers. This means that when applied it creates flexible tubes around each lash. This can create a lash extension-like look.

What are the pros of tubing mascara?

Tubing mascara is known for adding length, which is great if you have shorter lashes. But it also has the added benefit of easy removal. The tubes cling less to the lashes, thus making them slide right off when removed. For most tubing mascaras, you can just add a little makeup remover and slide the mascara right off. This is good for sensitive eyes because it means less rubbing and irritation.

What are the cons of tubing mascara?

While tubing mascara does add length and is easy to remove, there are a number of downsides to it as well. Because it’s easy to remove, it can also cause more transfer and fallout. For sensitive-eyed redheads, this can be quite a problem. Additionally, the formula of tubing mascara makes it quite hard to layer or build volume. This means that while your lashes may have length, they can end up looking quite sparse. Tubing mascara also takes longer to dry. 

Overall, tubing mascara has its pros and cons and can be a good choice if it fits your needs. But if you’re a redhead looking for mascara, skip the drugstore ones and head right to the mascara made specifically for you! Finally Have Lashes® is redhead mascara done right, so grab yours today.
