The mascara actually feels lighter than regular oil-based mascaras due to the lack of dried up clumps. The tubes actually make lashes feel spikier instead of volumising, which has been a critique by many users, another reason why Blinc developed a lash primer. Basically if you already have dark lashes it works miracles, but isn't as effective for lighter colours.
As for removing, the mascara does come off as little tubes, though not to the effect of seeing through the hollow center since it's so small. All it took was warm water and a few seconds of rubbing and voila - gunk gone!
