Good little mascara
Purchased

I received a sample of this mascara with another full size Benefit mascara. It did a good job of giving my lashes volume and fullness, but didn't seem to do significantly better than the drugstore brands I've tried. It's nice to have as a travel-size sample, but I probably would not purchase it at full price.

I prefer They're Real.

I got a sample size of this mascara as a bonus. For me, the brush is too large and doesn't define my lashes as well as other mascaras. I prefer a more tooth-like brush over a traditional model for that reason. While my lashes did feel soft even after application, it wasn't enough to put this over the edge for me. I live in notoriously humid Florida, so I noticed some transfer from my lashes to my under-eye area: a definite no-no.

Great volume but no length

This is a great mascara for people that already have long lashes. It didn't do much for my short asian lashes but make them a bit thicker

I'll keep looking
Purchased

I bought this both because of the great reviews on this site and my undying love for Benefit's marketing. I'm afraid I'm pretty disappointed. The mascara tends to wear off and smear around my lower lids after a couple hours of wearing, leading to darker than usual shadows under my eye. Also, as a mascara, its effect is not too noticeable...subtle for everyday (minus the smearing) but not really worth the price as my go-to mascara. Too bad.

Meh!

Maybe it's the short brush on the sample, but I don't love this. It takes quite a few coats to make a noticeable difference and it's rather dry. I'm just going to stick to drugstore brands.

Worked ok, but expected more for the price.

I tried BADgal lash at the suggestion of someone who worked at the Benefit counter. I was expecting my lashes too look great, specially since it cost $20, but I didn't feel that it worked that great. My eyelashes were clumpy and i didn't like the brush.

Great product!

Love this mascara! Gives a lot of volume to lashes and goes on smooth! Also easy to remove.. Overall I give it a great rating

Not quite what I'd hoped for
Purchased

I definitely like this mascara, but it doesn't quite have the wow factor that I was promised. It goes on easily and doesn't flake, but there's no "oomf" like described.

Not for me
Purchased

Liked it but had black smudges under my eyes by the afternoon. It also didn't lengthen my lashes like their other mascara "They're Real" does.

Good but overpriced

I do really like this mascara, and it does help make the eyelashes look bigger. However, for $19, it seems overpriced to spend on mascara, especially since mascara is used up pretty quickly. You can find a much cheaper option such as the L'Oreal Telescopic which is under $10, and makes your eyelashes look even bigger.
