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 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.

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

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.

Meh

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.

Not for Me :(
Sampled

I really wanted to love this product because it works so well for so many of my friends, however this just is not the mascara for me. I have naturally pretty long/dark/curly lashes so I have the luxury of not having to be too picky with my mascaras since most do the job just fine for me. The brush was I believe, the biggest issue for me. The application was painful and dispersed too much product on my lashes, making them look clumpy and brittle. Bummer! Glad I was able to try the sample size before springing for the full size!

The one thing I don't like from the Benefit brand
Sampled

Well, the tittle kind of says it all. I really strongly dislike this mascara. In my opinion it is overpriced and overhyped. It does nothing to my already long, thick, and luscious eyelashes. In fact, it makes them look worse than they look without mascara. But I know a lot of people have said they really love this mascara, so I guess it just depends on who you are.

Weird... maybe I used it wrong?

It felt so strange like it was grabbing onto and then pulling my lashes out. They looked stubby and goopy. I don't know if I did it wrong (somehow?!) because I have heard people love this. Wasn't for me though.

don't like the brush
Sampled

I think the mascara product was okay, nothing special. I really didn't like the bristles at the tip of the brush though, that's a deal breaker for me.
