They're real mascara, Benefit.

Hi guys!


I would like to share with you with my opinion about They’re real mascara from Benefit. I know that this product is not new on the market (2 years now) but I really could not resist the temptation to write about it.

They’re real is a mascara that gives you that fake lash look – apparently:






The producer says:
 “They're real! lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

What else you need to know:
•94% saw dramatic length & volume**
•90% saw base-to-tip curl**
•94% saw visible lift**
•100% saw long-wearing results**
•100% saw long-wearing results**”

These promises sound very good.

Lets start with the packing. It looks nice, very eye catching and solid.




The brush is rubbery type and quite big.






In my opinion this mascara did not work for me. The consistency of the mascara is very sticky and gooey. Instead of separate the lashes, glue them together. Especially when I put on my lower lashes, they sticked with my upper lashes and I could feel it very closely. I just could not blink. Moreover I struggled to put second layer because the lashes looked glued together after the first coat and it was very difficult to separate them. Besides the price of this mascara (£19.50) is quite high taking under consideration how it worked for me.
I found it a bit heavy and it did not add as much length as I’d like – it was better for the volume. On the plus side it is a very black mascara.



To sum up I will not buy this mascara again and I will not recommend it to anyone. Although if you already have the length and curl to begin with.


If some of you guys have different opinion, please share with me.
