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.

Disappointed
Sampled

I was so excited for this sample because it is such a cult favorite. However, I was very disappointed. I could see how some would love this mascara, but I prefer a fluffier, natural lash (BadGal lash is great for that). I could not apply They're Real in a way that looked natural. Yes, they looked long, but it was obvious I was wearing mascara and they quickly turned spidery. However, the long wear is great - almost like a waterproof mascara. Overall, not for me.

I don't really like the plastic applicator, I poke my eye every time I use one. This also is a heavy formula and I could see my curl droop as soon as I applied it. I know a lot of people have great luck with this, wish I were one of them.

Surprisingly just ok

I do prefer brown mascara since I'm fair haired and fair skinned, but that's not my complaint about this product. Find that it flakes off and leaves racoon rings under my eyes by lunch time and that it's gloppy to apply. The brush is very different and takes done getting used yo as I accidentally poked myself in the eye!

I do not use mascara. However, the sample size was generous.

Clumpy and falls off
Sampled

This mascara has never worked for me. I have tried it several times, but find that it gets clumpy and wears off easily.

Not Really Good

I felt like I was pulling my lashes out while using it. Tried it a couple of times - not for me.

This smears on me
Sampled

I have a problem with a lot of mascaras that just don;t stay put. I have really dry skin, but this happens with a ton of mascara. Color is nice, goes on smooth, jut won't stay put for me.

Eh not the best
Sampled

I didn't feel this product was that effective. I thought it just left my lashes sticky and thick, they didn't look voluminous or longer just clumpy. I am much happier with my drug store brand mascara.

I wanted to like this mascara, but the brush killed it for me. I like a thick brush - these spiky ones just don't cut it for me. Still like the Benefit brand, but won't be buying this.

Generally, I don't wear eye makeup, as I have incredibly sensitive eyes. I thought that I would give this mascara a try. I put it on in the morning and by the time I got to work, I was really to get it off my face. It came off with water.
