Benefit They're Real! Mascara

Consider this mascara the no-fuss alternative to falsies. It deals lashes a one-two punch, adding both length and volume to keep them looking anything but lackluster. We love how the formula doesn’t run or smudge, even after a whole day of wear, and gives our lashes a natural-looking curl without weighing them down. The jet-black color makes eyes pop, and it’s especially great when you’re trying to achieve a dramatic night out look. You’ll have to convince your friends that you’re not sporting faux lashes.

Dissapointed

An okay product

I tried this product and it was not very great. The only reason I give it a star is because it small and it fits into any purse, but the problem is, it's hard to remove. When removing, the mascara goes under my bottom lashes and it's very hard to take off.

Not sure what all the fuss is about?
Purchased

I purchased this specifically because of all of the RAVE reviews on the product--and because I'm constantly in search of the perfect mascara. I assumed, based on all the great reviews from others, that I'd found it.

Personally, I think the wand is a flawed design, as it doesn't get enough of the product onto it and then to your lashes. When reviewing mascaras, I look for volume AND length for my definition, and for me, this product delivered neither. Plus, I found it very hard to remove at the end of the day--even with eye makeup removal products. The quest for the perfect mascara continues!

CLUMPS!!
Purchased

Yikes! This was pretty much awful :( I had such high hopes but this was truly dreadful. My eyelashes are relatively long but a bit sparse and the older I get the more sparse they are. I wasn't anticipating much in the way of thickening as that was not something this mascara advertised but I was hoping for definition and some "WOW" factor. It was horribly clumpy...even with just one coat. My eyelashes feel like plastic and even though I curled them before I applied the mascara they some how got all wiggly and weighed down. Worst mascara I have ever tried. By far :(

disappointing

Sad that I hated this mascara. It's terribly sticky. So sticky that blinking is a chore - my upper and lower eyelashes would get stuck together. It also made my lashes clump, not separate cleanly. Really not a fan.

Too Clumpy

Normally I love benefit mascaras, but this one makes my lashes extremely clumpy! Not my favorite product they make. It also seemed to dry out very quickly as well.

Not what I anticipated...

I have heard dozens upon dozens of great things about this mascara. I wanted to love it I really did, but it seemed to really weigh down my lashes, I wish they made a waterproof version as those seem to dry faster and don't weigh my lashes down. I'm a bit disappointed after hearing so many good things about it, I most likely will not purchase this again.

Seemed dried out

this mascara seemed dried out when I got the tiny sample bottle so I wasn't able to get a good gauge of what it would do.

Meh.

I was really disappointed in this mascara... I saw many girls using it in tutorials on YouTube, and people were praising it on here. But this mascara is so clumpy and makes my eyelashes spidery. The brush definitely doesn't do what it says it does. Sad that I wasted $23 ): I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Not happy

I bought the trial size with my Birchbox points and I was so excited to try it because of the rave reviews. I feel like a crazy person, but I really didn't like it. It clumped horribly on my lashes, even with 1 coat and the formula flaked and ran after only a couple hours.
