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 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

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.

Not for Me

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.

too much work!

This was awesome when I put in on, the brush itself gets 6 stars. The formula, however, was IMPOSSIBLE to get off, it took me at least 5 minutes of vigorous scrubbing. It was disappointing to say the least.

There are better ones out there

When I first pulled out the wand, it reminded me of a mid-evil torture device. I wasn't sure how to use the end of it. It seemed to just cake on the mascara, there was no lengthening or curling from my lashes. My opinion, there are better products out there. It was a pain to remove at the end of the day. This product is not for me.

Tarantula Eyes
Sampled

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
Sampled

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.
