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 long-wearing 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.

This product is amazing, totally made my long lashes look fake, seemed to falsify them for sure. If this mascara didn't come off under my eyes (if my skin was not so oily) within two hours I'd use it exclusively. I don't think it really "curled" my lashes though.

I really want to like this mascara

I've tried this mascara, even purchased the full size, and it just doesn't work for me. I love most Benefit products, but this mascara clumps on my lashes. I know so many people that love it, I wish I was one of them!

Didnt like this. The brush was too short - maybe because it was a sample. However, the mascara was very flaky.

I received this product and it fairly dried out. I had scrape it to get some product and when I did, it didn't do much for my lashes.

Hate it.

Am I the only one in the world who hates this mascara??? It gives me raccoon eyes every single time.

It must be "operator error!"

I found that this mascara did a good job of separating the lashes, although I found that the pointy tipped brush that separates the lashes to be difficult to use and poked the eyelid.That could be a function of the small sample size though. My bigger disappointment was that the bottom lashes bled all day long, creating a dark circle that I did not like.

This is one of my favorite brands. It may be a little pricey, but I still love it. I however cannot wear mascara on a daily basis due to having very sensitive eyes, but if I could use it all the time, I'd probably buy benefit brand. I have naturally long lashes and I wear glasses most of the time, so I really only bust out the mascara for special occasions when I make myself tolerate contacts for a few hours. I gave this sample to my sister. It was her turn since I divvy out the mascara samples to close girlfriends.

I'm very partial to the mascara that I routinely use (Tarte's Amazonian Clay). I actually have already tried a sample of this and it just doesn't do it for me. I like my lashes to really pop and this just wasn't dark and thick enough for me.

not what expected!

I like a fuller brush and this brush is very thin. So many people love this product, but it was not for me.

I've used this mascara many times (more than it deserves, but I kept wondering if I was doing something wrong since everyone else seems to love it). I hate it. It clumps ridiculously or you can't tell that it's there.
