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.

Favorite out of all my mascaras ever! And that's saying something because I am a mascara hoarder. It is water proof and stays on until the end of time. I suggest using Aveeno face wipes to remove make up and this eye makeup. It's the only wipe I have found that actually gets it off that I like.

Like but don't love
Purchased

I had to try this because everyone is talking about it. I like it but didn't love it. Felt the brush wasn't as flexible or feathery as i would like and wasn't small enough to reach the corners lashes. Did a nice job not clumping and went on smooth. I like it but not sure i love it.

Wasn't my favorite
Purchased

I bought this mascara because of all the great reviews, but I really wasn't a fan. It made my lashes clump together and it left them looking limp. I wasn't a fan.

Great mascara!
Purchased

This is a great every day mascara! It has a little ball on the end which makes it easy to get into corners. I highly reccomend it!

amazing but takes forever to remove
Purchased

This mascara is the most amazing- only downside is that it is super hard to remove, which makes me think it has to be terrible for my eyes. It looks incredible on and it's the only mascara that stays put ALL day- never a fleck or smudge below my eyes. But the only way to get it off with any ease is if you buy the Benefit make-up remover made to go with it. I just have to imagine that the chemicals involved must be pretty harsh if this is the case. Still using though- not quite willing to sacrifice incredible lashes yet!

Great Mascara
Purchased

After getting this mascara as a sample, I ended up buying a full size because I loved it so much. I found that it went on smoothly without clumping and gave my eyelashes just the right amount of pop without having to put on multiple coats. It lasted well during the day also. Highly recommended product.

One of my favorites

This mascara is one of my very favorites. It separates perfectly while, honest to God, making your lashes look longer. Benefit knows their stuff especially when it comes to mascara. Definitely recommend.

Op love this as my backup mascara. I use a fiber lash but this works great extending lashes and adding volume.

Great mascara
Purchased

I'm always on the lookout for a good every day mascara, I think the Benefit they're real Mascara is a great option. Good coverage, and I did not have any issue with smudging towards the end of the day

Worth the splurge
Purchased

I don't normally go for high-end mascara, but I'm glad I tried this one. It goes on and STAYS ON. It even lasts through a good night's sleep. I like how it makes my lashes look thicker, fuller, longer without an eyebrow curler. I'm not sure I would go with the waterproof mascara next time, just for my own preferences, but if you like waterproof, this is definitely a winner.
