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.

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.

they're Real!

Mascara was too stiff and thick - it left my eyelashes clumpy and didn't do help with volume or length. I like other Benefit mascaras much better.

Dislike

I liked how long they looked however it left my eyelashes feeling stiff. I get same outcome from other mascaras without that feeling. Not recommended.

Meh.

I didn't like this mascara. The odd brush made my lashes and over defined them. I would not buy this again.

Waste of money

This product isn't even that great. It's not even the "best" either. It smudges, clumps and doesn't give me that great of a result I want. I could've just bought a cheaper mascara from the drugstore and it would've given me better results. Still, there hasn't been a mascara better than Cherry Blooms Brush on Fibre Lash Extensions. It's by far the best and I would recommend Cherry Blooms over anything else. They definitely deliver their promises to you which is up to 300% longer lashes! They're basically eyelash extensions in 2 mascara tubes. Also featured on the red carpet too! So you know they work! Totally worth the money for something that works and used by celebrities!
