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.

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.

Not my favorite

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.

Just Okay

I like how the brush separates all of the lashes. It even gets the tiny ones. However, I don't feel like it lengthened or curled my lashes.

Nice But Nothing Too Special
Sampled

I liked this as a sample. It was nice to get a mascara because I hadn't yet. The sample was a really good size personally upon using this mascara I didn't really notice a difference between it and my $7.00 mascara from Wal-Mart so I doubt I'll be buying it.

I guess I'm one of the few who does not like this mascara. I have been dying to try it because everyone loves it but I was not impressed. Maybe because it's brand new and mascara is always weird when it's freshly opened. But I did not like it and I feel like I wasted my money.

Not about the hype

This is a great product if you are going for a full lash look. The only thing that was disappointing way how dry the lashes felt even after one coat. I use a couple of other high end & drug store brand mascaras that do the same trick, but your eyelashes don't feel like there is any product on them. I did however get just as many compliments on my eyes, as with the other brands, but this was more affordable and still fun to try!
