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.

Yuck!

When I used this mascara multiple times trying to give it a chance, but it was really thick and I felt like my eyelashes looked really clumpy and stuck together. I actually threw it out rather than using it anymore.

Kind of "meh"

I ended up returning this product.. It was semi-waterproof, which made it hard to remove at the end of the night, even with make-up remover. I also felt like it didn't separate my lashes very well, making them clumped together and not at all how I like them to be.. I would not buy this again.

Hassle getting off!

I absolutely love this mascara as it it very long lasting but it is so difficult to remove! It will literally take me days to get it all off.

Not my fav...
SampledPurchased

I ordered a full size of this mascara on accident, meant to order the benefit roller, my neighbor raved about it!
I decided to keep it and give it a shot. To me it was too clumpy. I have sensitive eyes so sometimes they will burn after applying. also if i accidentally hit my eye with the applicator it would hurt and make my eyes water. The mascara was hard to remove fully. I prefer a softer, fuller applicator.

Great on length but so messy

Love the length and curl I get from this product, but the mess is not worth it. Every time I applied this mascara I was having to clean up under my eye, on lids and brow bone. Cleaning was a pain. It was hard to take off without taking all my other makeup as well.

Don't get it
Purchased

This was recommended by a friend and work so I thought I'd give it a try. I don't get what the big whoop is - I have long, sparse, very straight lashes and this just didn't do anything exciting for me.

works well, dries out quickly

For the price I'd hope the tube lasted a little longer. It's no longer that innovative of a brush, so I don't think I'll repurchase.

Meh...pricey for what it is
Purchased

I'm so disappointed! I really wanted to love this. I have friends that swear by this mascara, but I don't get it. I loved the color, but that was about it. My lashes seemed to stick together and didn't have much definition. Also, it seemed really difficult to remove--I even bought a new eyemakeup remover to try to take it off. I don't think I'll buy it again. $24 is too much for "meh". I still with my $7 favorite from Target.

Pretty good mascara
Purchased

So far I have really enjoying this mascara. It doesn't cake easily and it separates the lashes nicely. The only difficulty I have it getting it off. Whether I use soap and water or a makeup remover I still get black beads of residue from the mascara. It's really the only bummer about the product.
