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.

Don't Get the Hype
Sampled

This mascara is fine. I don't understand why it's higher rated than others though. The waterproof might be better for me, but I haven't tried it. It doesn't leave clumps, but flakes off pretty easily.

Good, but maybe over-hyped
Purchased

I ordered They're Real! mascara because I was looking to try a new mascara and the reviews on this were phenomenal. In actuality, I thought the mascara looked fine, but I don't know if it lives up to the hype. At least for my eyelashes, the results are not as dramatic as some other reviews tout. It's still a quality product and I will continue to use it, of course.

not my fav

I know this mascara has had good reviews, and it does give get lashes. I do not like this one. It dries out, and it hurts my lashes. I use to wear it, but have found better products.

Pretty good

Love the way this makes my lashes look. But it takes a lot to get it off with remover. But sure if I would buy full size

Good, but not as good as I thought it would be.
Purchased

I had hoped this would be the mascara to end all mascaras, but I am sad to say it fell a little short. Does it make my lashes thicker and longer? Yes, but not in the "falsies" way I was really hoping for. Even when I layered it on thickly it didn't give me the desired effect (or maybe my expectations are too high). It got flaky at times, especially when wearing all day, and didn't do well when I tried to touch it up in the evenings before going out. Won't purchase again, but it wasn't bad enough that I wanted to return it.

Kind of thick!

I found this mascara to be thick and hard to remove . It did not do well with my sensitive eyes.

Smears

Received a sample of this product and was initially so happy with how long it made my lashes, without any clumps. Unfortunately, this mascara consistently smears. However, my sister uses it all the time and it is the one mascara that she swears by. Very dissapointed and wish I could rave about it as much as others.

I was a little disappointed in this product. By itself I feel it is little week. But I used it with my other mascara and it made my lashes look longer and fuller.

I don't really care for this mascara. It is always clumpy on my lashes! I tried it because it is a best seller, and because I like other Benefit products. I won't be purchasing this again.

Good mascara. But not my favorite.
Purchased

I bought this ill size product without having a sample based on reviews. Now, don't get me wrong. This was a "good" mascara! All its claims were as they said. I just was expecting more. I have naturally long-ish lashes. Just lighter and not as thick as I like. I am a mascara queen, constantly on a search for the "perfect macara" for me. Unfortunately, this is not it. I didn't mind the product, just expected more vokume and "oomph". I had to layer this with my current mascara to achieve that look. Good for those who want "nice looking lashes". But I didn't see that "woah! Are those yours?!" Look like I was hoping for. Does last all day though! Another perk.
