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.

Its ok

I am not a huge fan of this mascara. I have owned it in the past. Its very difficult to take off and the wand is very sharp. If they changed the wand and made the formula less difficult I would buy it.

Don't Like The Brush
Sampled

I'm not fond of these rubbery mascara brushes. The mascara looks amazing and builds beautifully, but the brush left much to be desired, especially with the weird little longer bristles on the end. I had to have my comb ready to immediately fix what I was putting on.

Lots of volume if you don't mind clumps
Purchased

This mascara does provide a lot of volume, but it does clump a lot. The worst part is that it is very sticky and doesn't come off easy. I tend to use a conditioning mascara first, then add this as a second layer for added volume. Its too sticky/rough for daily use.

Decent product, a bit thick
Sampled

Overall, I liked this mascara. The packaging was simple, but the sample size was a decent amount. The only hang up I had was that the consistency of the mascara was a bit thick and clumpy. I'd buy the product, but my 6 dollar drugstore mascara works just as well if not better.

Love the brush!
Sampled

Love the bristles on the brush. I thought it did a great job separating my lashes. That alone had me ready to make a purchase after my sample ran out except...for almost half an hour after application, I had to suffer the irritation of my lashes sticking to each other each time I blinked. Ugh.

Runs
Sampled

Found the brush too short (small) and when I wash my face in the evening it is very hard to come off (and not waterproof at all). Not my favourite.

good mascara
Sampled

The mascara texture was very nice. Seems like it had to be removed with a makeup remover, which I prefer using just my cleanser. Also the wand although applied mascara very nicely I didn't like the top. Felt like I would like myself in the eye.

Kinda clumpy
Sampled

I was very happy with the size of this sample, as well as the coverage of my lashes. What I did not like was how it left dark rings under my eyes and how it goes on clumpy at times. Overall it did leave my lashes looking fuller, I would avoid using it in the summer since it runs.

It's OK
Sampled

It was just OK. It didn't give me the volume that I like in a mascara
