Top 26 Best Japanese Tube Mascaras in 2021 - Tried and True! (Integrate, media, and More)

Mascara opens up and brings out the eyes and irises, but it sometimes also likes to claim a few lashes as sacrifice when you take it off at night. However, tubing or tube mascara is designed to slip right off of your lashes with a bit of hot water, which makes it pretty safe and convenient to use. Japanese top-selling mascaras, like the ones on this list, are most often tubing-types. 

There are a ton of choices, and you need to know not only which mascara comes off easily but also which looks best when it goes on. That’s why we ordered the 26 most popular tubing mascaras from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as @cosme, Amazon, and Rakuten) and tested for the following:


  1. Ease of Removal
  2. Curl Staying Power
  3. Finish
  4. Ease of Use
  5. Smudge Resistance

What’s Tube Mascara Again?

What’s Tube Mascara Again?

Tube or tubing mascara is a mascara that comes off with hot water. But if a bit of hot water is all it takes to remove it, you might think, won’t it smudge and give me a black eye in a matter of minutes?

Actually, when tubing mascara dries, it forms a water-resistant film or tube around your lashes, which is where the name comes from. This coats your lashes and won’t smear with just sweat or water.
However, once you soak your lashes in hot water, tubing mascara is designed to slide right off; therefore, you don’t need to rub or wipe at your eyes to remove anything. It won’t react to just lukewarm water, for obvious reasons, so go with water that’s above 100℉.

Products That Didn't Make The Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

The Finish Was Less Than Ideal

The Finish Was Less Than Ideal

Opera MyLash Advanced was unexpectedly dense and weighed down our lashes. It also clumped when we tried for multiple layers. However, the brush was thin and easy to use and it was both smudge-resistant and easy to remove.


Another clumping mascara was Brow Lash EX Lash Sculpture. It didn't really lengthen nor spread out our lashes. The applicator was a comb curved to fit the shape of an eye, but it couldn’t untangle eyelashes. The product tended to pool in just one place and formed random clumps. It also smeared easily.


Even if you tried to fix the poor finish of Scalp D Beautè Pure Free Mascara by putting on more, the worse it became. Our lashes stuck to one another and it volumized more than lengthened. On the plus side, it didn’t smear and was easy to remove.

The Finish Was Less Than Ideal

It was extremely difficult to apply Canmake Gokunobi Mascara because of the slight curve of the brush; fiber also stuck out in weird places, so the finish was mediocre. The mascara itself was overly thick and lumpy, but it did wash off when soaked with hot water.


MUJI Long Curl Mascara Film Type did come off easily, but it flunked two other tests (curl staying power and finish). Too much product adhered to our lashes, which left them thick and straggly, like seaweed. In addition, it weighed down our lashes, causing them to lose their curl upon application.


Mitsuyoshi Stage Mascara caused a lot of clumping, and the final product was incredibly showy. It was too much for a typical day out and only really for stage actors. We couldn't control how much product went onto our lashes and the brush was also difficult to use. 

Issues With Taking Off the Product

Issues With Taking Off the Product

Kanebo Natural Framing Mascara might've slid off well with hot water, but it also had a problem with flaking off whenever lashes moved. You'd have to be constantly touching up throughout the day. It was also quite thick, so you’ll have to practice if you want to separate out your lashes for a sleeker look.


Our next contender, Leanani Premium Long & Separate Mascara, had the opposite problem. It just wouldn't come off and we had to scrub hard to get rid of residue. The formula was thick and adhered to our lashes in tight, thick clumps and the bristles of the brush couldn't separate out our lashes. It didn't smear and was easy to maneuver, though.

Issues With Taking Off the Product

Even though KATE Virtual Long Lash started peeling when we soaked it in hot water, there were parts that slid off completely and parts that kept clinging on. We had to rub at the lashes to get rid of all residue, and we ended up losing a few strands.

Likewise, Integrate Matsuiku Girls Lash (Sexy Long) still left some residue on the roots of our lashes even when washed off. We tried soaking the lashes for longer and tried scrubbing at them, but it still wouldn't come off.

Products That Didn't Make The Cut

Products That Didn't Make The Cut

Canmake Gokubuto Mascara's formula was dense and clung onto our lashes, bulking them up. The brush was also thick and difficult to use. Though the clumping wasn’t that bad, it left our lashes uneven, like they were covered in powder. It didn’t smudge, but it also didn’t come off with hot water.


And even when SANA Super Quick Mascara did slide off quickly in hot water, it bundled up our lashes so they looked like blades of grass, and the finish was horribly uneven. There were thick lashes, thin lashes, and everything in between. Plus, it smeared easily and requires a lot of touch-ups.


One that also smeared was RE:DUA by A-first Volume Mascara. All we did was spray on a bit of water, and rivulets of black started running from our lashes. It got worse with rubbing; if you use this mascara, your eyes are going to be completely black by the end of the day. Forget summer sports, you wouldn’t even be able to pass a day in the city with this mascara.

How We Tested the Tube Mascaras

How We Tested the Tube Mascaras

We gathered 44 popular Japanese eyeliners from Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme and tested them for ease of removal, curl staying power, their finish, ease of use, and smudge resistance.

Test ① Ease of Removal

Test ① Ease of Removal
First, we wanted to check whether or not the mascara was actually easy to remove.

We applied the tubing mascaras on false lashes. We then soaked each set of lashes in 104℉ water and looked for any residue. Finally, we graded the products on a five-step scale from 1.0 to 5.0.

Heavier Products Cling on to Your Roots

Heavier Products Cling on to Your Roots
It doesn’t matter if the mascara’s tubing or not–if it bundles your lashes together, it means that it’s stuck on tight and is only going to come off with a good amount of scrubbing. 

We tested out the products on false lashes–and good thing we did, because we accidentally plucked quite a few quite bare when trying to get rid of all residue.

On the other hand, if the product separated out lashes and went on light, then it usually slid right off in hot water. It’s mascaras like these that will save you precious time at the end of the day.

Test ② Curl Staying Power

Test ② Curl Staying Power
Next, we looked at how long each mascara could keep our lashes curled.

We attached all of the coated lashes on to a wall for eight hours. We wanted to see how far the lashes drooped, both right after we applied tubing mascara and after eight hours had passed. We then graded each product on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0.

※In order to get as close as real life as possible, we also sprayed on some artificial sebum after four hours.

Products That Spread Easily and Went on Light Kept Our Lashes Curled the Longest

Products That Spread Easily and Went on Light Kept Our Lashes Curled the Longest
At the end of the day, the products that kept our lashes curled the longest tended to be soft and spreadable, as well as light-weight.
And, surprisingly enough, volumizing mascara was better at maintaining curl than lengthening mascara. It was denser and clingier, which actually helped it hold a pose for longer.

Test ③ Finish

Test ③ Finish
Next, we simply looked at the finish of each mascara.

We applied the mascara on fake eyelashes and made sure there were no unsightly clumps. If the mascara was supposed to be lengthening, we looked at whether it actually made the lashes longer; if it was volumizing, we looked at whether it made them thicker. We then graded each on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0.

Mascara That’s Been Laced through With Fiber Both Volumizes and Lengthens

Mascara That’s Been Laced through With Fiber Both Volumizes and Lengthens
Mascara with thin strands of fiber mixed in did the best on this test–this holds true for both volumizing and lengthening mascara. You want the fiber strands to be fine, as larger strands can branch off from your lashes and look like split ends. However, smaller strands naturally blended into our lashes, leaving them looking thicker and longer, but still natural.
On the other hand, thick products that didn’t spread easily performed poorly on this test. They collected onto our lashes, leaving us with big clumps.

Test ④ Ease of Use

Test ④ Ease of Use

Next, we looked at how easy each mascara was to apply. Specially, we wanted mascara that went on smoothly–without any hills or gaps–and brushes that picked up just the right amount of product. We graded everything on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0.

Brushes Ease of Use Depends on How Closely Packed Together Bristles Are

Brushes Ease of Use Depends on How Closely Packed Together Bristles Are
We had tons of brushes that looked identical at first glance; however, they all performed differently, depending on how closely packed together their bristles were. Brushes that had dense clusters of bristles were better at reaching every last lash, down to the fine hairs at the corners of the eyes. They left behind no gaps.
In addition, brushes that were flexible didn’t get stuck and were able to apply product smoothly–something else to keep in mind if you want a brush that’s easy to use.

Test ⑤ Smudge Resistance

Test ⑤ Smudge Resistance
Finally, we tested each mascara for staying power.

We stuck the coated lashes onto sheets of paper and sprayed them with an artificial mixture of water and sebum. We then passed each set of lashes over with a cotton five times and looked at how much the mascara smeared. We then graded each on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0.

Heroine Make’s Mascara Easily Took First

Heroine Make’s Mascara Easily Took First
Heroine Make’s Long & Curl Mascara Advanced Film didn’t budge at all. It might have had some issues, but we will give it credit for being both a waterproof and tubing mascara. Even when we sprayed it with water and rubbed at it, no color transferred on to the sheet underneath.
As far as we know, Heroine Make’s Advanced Film is the only waterproof mascara that comes off with hot water. Give it a try on days you need extra staying power.

How to Choose Japanese Tube Mascara – Buying Guide

Next, we want to introduce three things you should look out for when picking out Japanese tubing mascara.

Make Sure It's Going to Give You the Finish You Want

Generally speaking, there are two kinds of mascara: lengthening and volumizing. Each transforms your eyes in a different way, adding new nuances and impressions.

Lengthening Mascaras Give You Long, Delicate Lashes

Lengthening Mascaras Give You Long, Delicate Lashes
You might simply think “I want longer lashes,” or you might be like, “I really want to bring out my eyes, but in doing so, still look natural.” In either case, you want lengthening mascara. Lengthening mascara gives you a sleek, clean finish, which results in a more elegant look.
If you’re looking for extra length, look for mascara that stretches out your lashes with the help of fiber strands–known in Japan as the fiber and long type.

Volumizing Mascara Gives You a Bold, More Dramatic Flair

Volumizing Mascara Gives You a Bold, More Dramatic Flair
If you want to look like you have thick lashes and a lot of them, get volumizing mascara. More product adheres to your lashes, so they look denser and fuller. It brings out your pupils and irises, giving you a more intense gaze.
However, volumizing mascara does clump easily. When you apply multiple coats, to keep product from balling up, comb out your lashes in between each layer.

Look for Brushes That are Easy to Use

Look for Brushes That are Easy to Use

Not getting your ideal lashes? One thing you may have overlooked is your brush! Here are the four most common types of mascara brushes; as you look over them, keep in mind both the kind of finish you want and what kind of brush you’d find easiest to work with.


  • Arched
    Arched brushes are the most common and probably the most beginner-friendly. They can brush out your lashes so that they’re longer, and they can pump up the volume too. They’re shaped to fit the curve of your eye, so it’s easy to apply mascara straight from the roots.

  • Rocket
    The closer you get to the tip, the thinner the brush gets. This makes it easier to get to the fine lashes in the corners of your eyes. Then, when you need some overall volume, apply mascara with the thick center of the brush.

  • Gourd
    Like a gourd, there’s a depression in the middle of the brush, meaning that it applies different amounts of mascara to different lashes. This makes it easier to fine-tune both the volume and length of your lashes.

  • Comb
    A comb will separate out your lashes as it applies product, which means it precludes clumping. It’s great if you want a more natural look.

Check That It's Not Going to Smear

Check That It's Not Going to Smear
We said earlier that tubing mascaras are strong against oil and sweat. However, because they are designed to come off with hot water, some products do start flaking and smearing once it gets hot and humid enough.
On particularly hot, sweaty days or during allergy season, when your eyes are constantly watering, your mascara may slide off without you even noticing. It’s worth giving the reviews a quick read-through before purchasing.

Of course, we also checked for smudge resistance when we tested out the products, so be sure to look out for the results! You can also throw on a top coat on days you need extra staying power.

How to Properly Remove Tubing Mascara

How to Properly Remove Tubing Mascara
Tubing mascara is supposed to come off easily with a bit of hot water, but, depending on the brand, there are some that don’t. When this happens, do not scrub off the residue!
Oftentimes, you need to soak your lashes in water to get rid of residue. If you take off your makeup in the shower or bath, let some steam and facial cleanser work its way into your mascara first, softening it up before you remove the rest.
If you take off your makeup before stepping into the shower, wet some cotton pads in warm water. Lay them on top of your eyes and let your lashes soak; this will ensure that all traces of mascara disappear when you rinse off your lashes afterward.

Make Your Eyes Pop With More Eye-centric Products

Make Your Eyes Pop With More Eye-centric Products

Mascaras aren't the only thing you need when trying to make your eyes stand out. Eyeliners and undereye creams can do wonders for completing your look. Take a look at some tried and true options below!

Summary

We rounded up experts and members of our editing department, purchased the 26 most popular Japanese tubing mascaras, and tested them all.
As you probably saw, tubing mascaras have finishes that differ greatly from one another, and some are easier to remove than others. So next time you’re in the market looking for mascara that will be gentler on your lashes, make sure to keep the tips and tricks we talked about today in the back of your mind.
