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.

Weird... maybe I used it wrong?
Sampled

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.

Not for me.
Sampled

Benefit seems to be a well loved and well marketed brand, but it is not for me. I have tried several of their products and have not been satisfied. I was really excited to try They're Real! Mascara, because I have heard such great things about it. Unfortunately, the mascara flaked off on my lid and underneath my brow all day. It definitely gave that "falsies" look, which I loved, but I will not be purchasing it because of the all-day flaking and residue.

Flakes!
Sampled

Almost all mascara flakes on me and gives me raccoon eyes. This one was no different. Not impressive at all.

Harsh brush
Sampled

Surprisingly didn't love this. The bristles on the brush were hard and far apart ... too much for my tiny, thin lashes. Couldn't get good coverage and was just overall uncomfortable.

Caused a bad reaction
Sampled

I've never had issues with mascara before- but immediately after applying this mascara my eye lids began bothering me. It caused the skin to tighten up, and made my contacts not stay on my eyes and made me want to pull my eye lashes out.

Half way through the morning I had raccoon eyes with this mascara! Product was thick and a bit clumpy for me.

not like real
Sampled

Mascara is one of the most important staples in my make up collection. I have heard from multiple people that "they're real" is the best mascara ever!! Not so, you have to use way too many coats compared to other mascara's to even come close to adding length or volume. I have at least 3 other mascara's that do more than "theyre real".

It made my lashes long and thick, only reason I didn't like is because it left me w raccoon eyes just beneath my eyebrows. I always go back to definicials by Lancôme.

Best Mascara EVER!

I received the small size in a gift and right when I tried it I fell in love with it! it is very easy to apply, it really leaves your lashes looking like fake lashes and I mean this in the best way. people will ask if you are wearing fake lashes because they look full and long. It lasts all day and it will not run. I cant go back to any other mascara. It is worth they price too.
