Unlike regular mascara, which paints lashes with pigment, tubing creates water-resistant, tube-like enclosures around each individual lash. It goes on slightly wetter than regular mascara and when it dries the lacquer shrink-wraps around each lash.
Normal sweat and tears won’t disturb it, and when you need to remove it warm water causes the tubes to swell and loosen their grip on lashes and rinse off.
