Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara Mini

Consider this mascara the no-fuss alternative to falsies. It deals a one-two punch, adding length and volume to keep lashes looking anything but lackluster. We love how the long-wearing formula doesn’t run or smudge (even after a whole day) and gives our lashes a natural-looking curl without weighing them down. The unique definition-enhancing brush lifts and separates each lash, and the jet-black color makes eyes pop.

Perfect to keep in my purse!

"They're real!" is my absolutely FAVORITE mascara!! I have the full size and keep my mini in my wristlet when I go out on the weekends so that I can touch up! It fits perfect in my little purse!

Beautiful...Long Lashes!
Purchased

Received this as a sample. This is by far the best lengthening mascara I have tried. My lashes were lengthened significantly and looked naturally curled. I will be buying this mascara as my go-to!

Pretty good
Purchased

This was my first time using a benefit mascara, I wanted to try out a tester before buying a full one.

As far as the actual mascara goes, it's good. Adds instant volume and length, goes on smoothly. (I tend to blot all my mascaras and add in thin layers)

What I don't like is how big and awkward the wand is, although the teeth on it are shaped nicely and do the job well, I wish it were half the size. It makes doing detail work with those corner lashes somewhat difficult.

I wouldn't wear this mascara for an every day look, more like a going out at night or if you want that extra pop with your eyes.

The perfect size
Purchased

I wear this on the weekends and when I'm going out because it is a bit intense for daily wear as a college student. The mini size is perfect because I can use it only on the weekends and replace it every 3 months just when I run out. It is a little harder to remove than other mascara I've used and tends to run really bad if I forget to take it off before showering. Cleanup is the only reason not to give it five stars.

Spider lashes

I am not a fan of this mascara! My best friend loves it but if I put more than one coat on my lashes all stick together and just look awful. It takes a while to dry and I wind up with smudges from wet mascara under my eyes. I also have a hard time washing it off.

Finally tried it

I have heard so many good reviews about this and have to try it. Unfortunately it is a disappointments. I want to love it but I don't. First I don't like the applicator which makes it hard to lengthen my short lash. Second it smudge. Third my lash doesn't look any better than other mascara.

I have pretty tiny straight eyelashes. Birchbox sent me a sample of Beneifit They're Real mascera and it worked so well, doesn't smudge and holds the length pushing the lashes upward! I have purchaed more ever since my sample ran out! very pleased!

Love it!
Purchased

My eyelashes have never been more long. I love how black and how much volume my lashes are when i use this. I got this as a sample and I loved it enough to buy another tube. It swipes right on, very easy with little to no clumps.
