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.

I might have been putting it on wrong, I tried to do the shake like it said, but I might as well had tarantula legs for eye lashes. I only did one eye and then my normal on my other eye and went out and people noticed. It was just a bad experience.

Benefit some other lashes

I love Benefit but I do not love their mascara. The mascara leaves my lashes feeling hard and it doesn't make mine look longer or voluminous. The only positive thing I can say about this mascara is that it does not clump when applying.

I've tried and used BeneFit products before in the past. It just doesn't seem to work for my skin. I always ended up getting an allergic reaction. Great product although.

I've tried this mascara before from Sephora and didn't love it, so I was disappointed to find it in my June Birchbox. The brush is great for avoiding clumps, but it's nearly impossible to build up any volume. Also, it smudges underneath my eyes and when applying it it dries rather quickly, so again- not much volume. I've been using Covergirl Lashblast for years and I still haven't found anything to beat it.

Too Thick
Sampled

I love the idea of this product but when I tried it, the formula just seemed to be too thick and clumpy on my lashes.

not good
Sampled

i thought this was going to be a sample of the new push up liner but instead i now have about 3 samples of this mascara that i'm not going to use. after hearing so many great reviews i was so excited to try it but it just doesn't hold my curl. every time i tried it my lashes would go stick straight after application. not a fan.

This gave me raccoon eyes very early in the day. I was very disappointed.

I don't think this mascara did anything for me. I did not like the applicator I like it when it's an actual brush.

So very clumpy
Purchased

I really want to like this product, but every time I've tried it I end up looking as though I have about seven super-thick lashes. Any idea why this works so well for everyone else but for me it just sticks all my lashes together? I'd like to know what, if anything, I'm doing wrong.
