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.

Disappointment

After seeing so many before and after pictures and rave reviews, I just knew I was going to love this mascara, but, sadly, I did not. I actually got the same results from my cheap ELF mascara. I also found it odd that even though this is some of the hardest mascaras to remove, it still smudged during the day.

Alright

I heard SO MUCH about this product between stores, blogs, and youtubers. I was so excited to purchase this. Instantly I tried this on, keep in mind I had no makeup on prior. As I applied it, I noticed quite a bit of volume increase. But I wasn't as pleased with the product as I had hoped. It's great packaging, and a good mascara, I just wish for the price it actually gave you more of the falsie look. I didn't see this do much, or any lengthening at all, it could be my eyelash curler, or my eyelashes are just that short. I tried all the different mascara techniques possible and I got nearly the same results. i don't think I'll buy the product again, but I'll still continue to use what's left. The product is not bad, it's just not what I hoped, and I don't think it's worth the price, I'm sure I could test a drugstore mascara for a fourth of the price that works somewhat, or just as good.

Had such high hopes!

My friend received a sample in her box, but not being a mascara wearer she passed it on to me (since mascara is my one cannot-leave-the-house-without item). The first morning I put it on - I was in LOVE. It seperate, lengthened, defined and just made my eyes look great. I was already planning my full-size purchase. I was in love.

Come bed time (I somehow clearly hadn't looked in the mirror since the late afternoon ladies room trip) I was devastated to see the flaked mascara surrounding my eyes. Not just a flake or two - Flakes everywhere. To their credit - that which was still on my lashes looked good. But a good portion had flaked and were creating a spotted swath under both eyes. I tried a couple more times - thinking maybe I'd rubbed my eyes and not remembered or something. Same fantastic start, but same flaky end every time.

Sadness.

Favorite Mascara for Everyday

Adds definition and length to my otherwise unnoticeable lashes without making them obnoxious. Clump free even after months of use, flawless application every time.

Pro/Con

I have mixed feelings about this mascara. While it does separate your lashes and make them look good, I thought that it hurt to put on. You have to be really careful while putting it on because when I touched the wand to my eyelid, it really hurt. Most other mascaras don't feel this way but I think it's something about the bristles that make them a little bit more harsh. I also felt like I needed to reapply more often than I do with other mascaras I wear. It's alright, but if you have sensitive eyes like me, I wouldn't recommend it.

Amazing length but no volume
Purchased

If you want length then this is the best mascara out there. Unfortunately my eyelashes are already long I just need volume which this didn't offer :(

best mascara ever

HANDS DOWN best mascara, I've ever used! and trust me, I've tried it ALL. I don't have the lengthiest of eyelashes, and this makes me look like i have beautiful, natural, full lashes. I love the spiky ball on the end of the wand to get all the lashes separate and lengthened. I highly recommend.

Nothing short of perfection!

This mascara is everything it claims to be! I am a mascara junkie! After trying hundreds of different formulas and brands They're Real! has become my holy grail! It takes getting use to but is perfection once you get the hang of it. It has a remarkable formula that allows it to be worn with a few coats for everyday wear & easy buildabilty for an evening look. It stays ALL DAY & ALL NIGHT! It doesn't run or smear once dried but is tricky to remove fully. This product is worth the money & is one of a kind!
