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 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.

A good everyday mascara!
Sampled

This is a great everyday mascara. I already have really long eyelashes, so I can't tell that it added tons of length!

Won't buy again.

I really wanted to love this mascara but it dries out quickly and becomes clumpy after a couple of weeks. I like mascara that is dramatic and for the first few uses this did the trick. However, it is too difficult to get off and therefore not worth it to me.

New mascaras are always my fave!
Sampled

One of my favorite things about my monthly Birchboxes are these tiny mascara samples. Benefit has always been one of my go-to brands for quality products, and this mascara is no exception.

Not what I expected
Purchased

I was hoping for some fabulous, miracle mascara based on so many five-star reviews, but I am not impressed. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but every time I use this my lashes look like Yzma's from that one movie. If you don't know what I'm talking about look it up for a nice laugh. I'll be sticking to my favorite drugstore brand mascara, which works better anyway, from now on.

It wasn't what I was expecting
Sampled

I'm used to using mascaras that really plump up my lashes. But this is mascara doesn't seem to hold up to it. I wasn't really happy with it. I only used it once or twice.

Mascara is okay
Sampled

I found this Mascara to be okay, I know it's not waterproof but the minute my lashes got water on them I had mascara running down my face.. not a fan of that.

I love what the wand does to my lashes. However, it is such a pain to remove/wash off, even with a really good makeup remover, that I don't see myself purchasing the full size.

Good

I like this mascara a lot. It goes on smooth and makes your lashes thick and full. I don't like how hard it is to wash off. Also, it seems to have dried out very quickly.

Nice

Since I'm not big on makeup I gave this sample to a friend and so far she loves it. She said it makes her lashes long and full. Thinking of trying it out myself to see.
