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.

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!

not bad

I wanted to love this product more than I actually did. I naturally have long lashes but am always looking for more volume and fullness, and this didn't do it for me. I enjoyed the color and brush but felt like my lashes had clumped together more than I was expecting

Not for me.

I'm not one to usually wear mascara, but I figured I'd try it out with the push up liner that I have. It clumped on my lashes, I had issues with taking off what didn't flake off onto my face later in the day. (Not sure if that was the mascara or the liner though.

Ok, but not my favorite
Sampled

I was very excited to receive a sample of this mascara because I have heard really good things about it. I don't love it. It does a fine job, but I don't feel like it does anything special for my lashes.

Too clumpy

I wanted to love this mascara, but at best for me it was just another mascara. The brush was a nice size, but I felt that the formula was too clumpy, and the brush didn't seem to separate my lashes as well as other mascaras have. However, the formula lasted almost all day long, so that is a plus!

Just OK

This mascara might be wonderful for those who don't possess the long lashes we all hope for. But for the lucky few who do, this mascara can be somewhat difficult to work with. I found myself making a mess all over my eye lid trying to keep my eyes closed while the mascara dried.

Too hard to remove
Purchased

This does bring out your eyes although I do not think it makes you look like you're wearing false eyelashes. It works as good as some of the voluminous drugstore brands I've tried. The one reason I gave it only 3 stars is it is really really hard to remove! My normal makeup remover makes this spread all over my eye so I look like a racoon and I have to use an oil based eye makeup remover then scrub all the dang oil off my face. Needless to say I don't use it very much for this reason.

Solid mascara

As someone with glasses, it's hard to find a good mascara that will plump my lashes without making them too long. This does that. It's expensive though.

Great looking lashes

This is a great mascara! However the down side is that it is very difficult to remove. It made my lashes look amazing. But I don't want to work that hard at taking off my mascara everyday. This will be my going out on the town mascara.
