Wow, Benefit mascara is amazing!! My whole life I have always used makeup from the drug store. I tried a little mini size of both "They're Real" and also another one, I forget the name. But both were so awesome. Usually I have do do a few coats just to get all the lashes covered. But honestly, with one swipe using Benefit mascara, it went on so well and covered all the lashes and made them so long and pretty. So you don't need to use too much because of hjow well it goes on. I highly reccommend buying any Benefit mascara, it will be WELL worth the money. I also have "Boing" cover up and it is amazing too!
