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.

Love the length, hate the clumps
Purchased

I must say I love the length this gives my lashes when I use this product, but the clumps are unbearable. I wanted to bad to love this product but it made my lashes so clumpy and dry I had to move on to a different product.

Pretty Lashes

I am a bit picky when it comes to mascara. I like the natural look. Not clumpy. This mascara is perfect for that. Gave good color and volume without looking like I put on 50 coats in one application.

It irritated my eyes and smeared a bit... I would rather have a waterproof mascara, non-irritating. Maybe more non allergic too

I like it!
Sampled

I've hear so, so many good things about this mascara. It has a great brush that separates, and the formula okay--kind of wet so it weighs down lashes (a little). It will dry a little to enable you to build on the first layer. The one thing I hate about it, is that it will NOT come off (racoon eyes).

High Expectations
Sampled

I was SOOOO excited to get this in my box since I was just about to buy this product at the store a week before. I had very high expectations since this is Benefit's product. It did not give me the "thickness" and volume that I like in a mascara but gave my lashes good length. The brush has a spiked ball at the end which I really like for precision, but that is the only amazing thing about this product.

Okay

I did not find this to be the best mascara I have ever used. Was actually looking for better results.

Lengthens, but clumpy
Sampled

I have naturally long and dark lashes. This mascara made them appear longer, but made my eyelashes clump together a little bit. I had the "spider-eye" look which is not ideal. It does stay on unless I use makeup remover, so it sems to last a long time. However, I do not like the overall look so I would not buy the full size.

Great Mascara, but not the greatest
Sampled

I am not one to usually spend $15+ on mascara. I have on one occasion and this will not be a second one. It felt very clumpy to me and it took more time than would like to have spent to make it look more natural and less over done. I will use it until it is gone, but will not be purchasing the full size.

Just ok

I love trying new mascara! I felt that this one was not much different than my favorite drug store brand.

not as dramatic as expected

This was interesting. Weird retro-looking packaging. I dunno, it's not really that much better than my over the counter mascara.
