Benefit They're Real! Mascara Review


I don't know why it has taken me so long to give this mascara a whirl, it is currently the UK's number 1 selling mascara and gets raved reviews about it daily. Even the boy asked me one day in Boots 'have you tried that mascara yet' pointing randomly to a funky stand alone display, to his shock i actually hadn't and with him knowing i needed a new mascara he quickly picked one up for me, i obviously have him very well trained.

They're Real! Mascara promises to lengthen, curl, volumise, lift and separate with a long wearing formula that won't dry out or smudge. Now that really is some claims!

It definitely lengthens and curls, gives good volume and lift and the formula is amazing for the longevity however there is a slight down side to that. It does leave my lashes a little crispy as they say which OK isn't all that bad for what it is actually doing to my lashes its just the taking off the mascara which is a pain, its so incredibly hard to remove and takes a lot of gentle work and when your tired and you just want to remove your make-up quickly before bed this is not a good thing.

Having said that i do really love this mascara and i believe it is all down to the incredibly cool brush. It is a plastic bristle brush not my preference i must admit but what does it for me is the tiny little rounded brush at the end of the wand itself. Benefit says that the brush is to help you discover lashes you never knew you had which is sort of true, i mean i knew i had those lashes its just other mascara wands have never reached or grabbed those lashes before so i really do get a winged out effect with this mascara. It also means i can get those tiny little inner corner lashes to achieve a more fuller look. Now this little rounded brush on the end also works perfectly for your bottom lashes and doesn't smudge at all. 

I know a lot of people are not too keen on the chunky sparkling chrome silver packaging but i have to admit I'm a fan especially with the neon orange font!

So all in all i do really love this mascara not the hefty price tag of £18 though but i can see myself eventually repurchasing, the only thing with the big wide world of mascara's is that is definitely it, it is a big wide world for them and there is always a new one on the market which i am wanting to try. I am sure however Benefit They're Real! will have pride of place in my make-up bag again.

Have you tried They're Real yet? What were your thoughts?

  6. I've not tried this yet but I'm always so tempted whenever I see it. I'm always scared to change mascara as it is so hit and miss.

  14. I absolutely love this mascara from Benefit too, and fell in love with it when I got a sample a while back. After I finish up my open mascaras, which are great as well by the way - Covergirl LashBlast Fusion and Tarte's lights, camera, lashes - I will really consider getting They're Real, even though I am kind of hesitant because of the price.

  15. Favourite mascara of all times and I don't know if it is because I have long eyelashes or this mascara but so many people ask me if I am wearing falsies!
