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.

Love this mascara!
Sampled

So far, have really loved this mascara. I'm thinking of buying full size. Eye lashes look very voluminous and natural. No clumping.

Separates eyelashes perfectly

I love this mascara because it separates, elongates, and curls the eyelashes really well! My only wish was that it thickened and darkened my lashes more. I usually put this mascara on first than a thicker mascara on afterwards to achieve a more darker eye. However this product is amazing for bottom lashes!

Won't buy again.
Purchased

I really wanted to love this mascara but it dries out quickly and becomes clumpy after a couple of weeks. I like mascara that is dramatic and for the first few uses this did the trick. However, it is too difficult to get off and therefore not worth it to me.

Doesn't hold a curl, and hard to remove
Sampled

I had high hopes but this mascara disappointed me for several reasons. Most important (for me), it doesn't hold a curl. I have straight eyelashes which I always use an eyelash curler on, but after applying They're Real, my eyelashes completely straightened back out. Also, it's difficult to apply multiple coats - it starts clumping. Finally, this mascara is nearly impossible to remove. i had to soak my eyes in makeup remover for five minutes straight!

Love it, but difficult to remove
Sampled

I love this, but it is very difficult to get off, even with removing wipes. But this is exactly how I like my lashes to look - you don't need anything else!

If my review summary and rating doesn't give you any idea of how I feel about this product, I don't know what will! First, I absolutely love receiving mascara samples in my box! They're just so darn cute and convenient! This mascara tho.....AMAZING! Two coats and you're good to go. I absolutely love the brush. It really makes the lashes POP! Needless to say....BUY THIS MASCARA!

This is the first mascara I've received through Birchbox and I'm so glad!

This is the first mascara I've received through Birchbox and I'm so glad! I love mascara. I have oily skin. I have to watch what I use, because of it flaking off and collecting under my eyes. This went on great and looked great throughout the day.

Lots of volume and curl, especially when using a lash curler before I apply the mascara. And even after layering there aren't any flakes. And it doesn't clump my lashes together. Good stuff!
