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.

Long lashes but at what cost?
Sampled

I love my Benefit products. I've been using Porefessional, Benetint, and others for years. I was so excited to try They're Real. My lashes are long but they don't curl so they often look stumpy. A couple coats of this mascara and my lashes looked great! However, I noticed as the day went on my lashes began clumping together. By the time I got home I looked like I had a few giant lashes. Super bummed in this product. I really like the liner, though.

Overall good mascara

I like to use They're Real as a base layer of mascara. Though I have naturally long, black lashes, I find this mascara does great as a first coat, but tends to stick lashes together if another coat is put on top of it. So, if I'm going for a natural look, one coat of this works great! However, for a night out, I like to put another coat of drugstore mascara on top, to volumize a bit more without having my lashes become one giant lash.

Final note: They're Real does a great job of holding my eyelashes in place. Curl, one coat of They're Real, and my natural lashes look great for about 8-10 hours, which I find pretty impressive.

Best Mascara
Purchased

I have been wear this mascara for years now, it is my absolute favorite. It makes my lashes long and full. It's weightless and doesn't flake. It's a little pricey, but always worth it.

Best mascara ever
Purchased

Hands down the best mascara I've ever used. Light years better than any I've tried before. When I'm wearing it, it looks like I'm wearing fake eyelashes. It is, however, a but difficult to remove.

Nice

I like this mascara... I have oily eye lids though and I do have a problem with slight smudging or flaking after a long day with this one... But again really really oily eyelids. If you don't have this problem then you should be just fine. I still use it and I have repurchased it. It makes you eye lashes look really long but no so much volume I usually mix this with a volume mascara.

Smooth and no clumps!
Sampled

This Mascara goes on so smooth and clump free, the only reason I didnt give it five stars is because it seems to dry out my lashes and gets a little flaky.

Product did work really well but was a little tacky & gummy feeling. I did like the effects but not the feel.

Makes eyes POP!
Purchased

I have bought this mascara a few times now. It makes my eyelashes look long and voluminous and is great for a night out. My only complaint is that it seems to 'require' eye makeup remover to get it off at the end of the day (my regular cleanser doesn't remove it entirely. But no biggie.

love it - no clumps!

Perfect timing - I was on the hunt for a new mascara and I'm thrilled with this one. No clumps, long lasting coverage, lengthens & thickens.

First mascara switch in 8 years!
SampledPurchased

Benefit's mascara is truly amazing!! I have naturally long and curly lashes, and have been content using Maybelline brand mascara since I was 16 (I've been buying the same mascara for 8 years!!). I've tried several other brands to see if anything could beat it, but nothing before this product swayed me. "They're Real" mascara truly elongates the lashes and separates to create a fuller look. While wearing this mascara, I honest to goodness have had people ask me if my eyelashes are fake!! Nope, THEY'RE REAL!
