It isn't waterproof, but it certainly has staying power. No need to reapply before post-work cocktails.

This longtime favorite has an oversized wand and superdark formula to give you ultra dramatic lashes.

How it Works

Famously big, bodacious brush coats lashes with the ultra-black formula, creating volume and thickness.

How to Use

Starting at the roots, apply in a back-and-forth motion to create depth. Then, if you like, add extra coats for length.

awesome

I have been using Benefit "They're Real" for the past few months and a friend recommended bad gal lash, so i decided to change things up and I ordered it . Bag gal lash has a more "traditional brush" whereas they're real has a more plastic bristled brush. I do like both of the products but I think that bag gal applied more subtle and didn't leave my lashes as sticky and heavy. I'll continue to use this one for day to day looks and use they're real with my more dramatic looks. overall I would recommend this product.

Love this mascara
Purchased

Bought this product with my Birchbox points and I couldn't be happier. The wand had a large brush that separated my lashes and created lots of volume at the same time. I am blonde and have light, short eyelashes. This mascara made them stand out in the best way possible and now it looks like I have darker, fuller eyelashes. I was using the Bare Minerals voluminizing mascara but I will be re-purchasing this Benefit mascara when the time comes.

must have mascara

This is a must have for every one's make up essentials. This is a great every day mascara. If you want to transition from day to night just apply a few more coats and you have a night to day mascara. Quality is very good, it is smooth and does not clump.

This mascara for me does it all!! Never flakes, never clumps, goes on big and stays all day, easily washable but I never suffer from the "raccoon eyes" other mascaras can leave behind.. Has been a staple for quite a few years. Benefit rocks!

One of my favorites

I've been using this mascara for a while and I really like it. It has a really nice brush and makes lashes look thicker and more defined but they still look very natural. Great everyday mascara.

Gloopy

I've loved my Benefit mascaras in the past, but this one is a disappointment. Doesn't go on smooth, and the style of the brush is nothing fancy. Skip this one and stick to the Falsies.

Does wonders!

One of the best mascaras I have owned - the brush is the perfect shape to get your lashes long and dark, and it only takes a couple coats to do so. The mascara also doesn't clump very much, which is great.

Amazing
Purchased

This mascara is amazing. I only needed a couple of coats to have my lashes looks bigger an bolder. The wand gives you better control. It would last all day long and would not smudge into my face. I love it.
