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.

Looks great but can be irritating

I really love the look of this mascara- my eyelashes that are short and stick straight transform into lashes that you can see from miles (ok probably more like yards) away (with the help of an eyelash curler, of course). But after a few times of wearing this mascara, my eyes got a little red and were irritated until I stopped using it. I'll probably still use it for special occasions but not for everyday.

Intense!
Purchased

One coat of this makes my lashes look better than my old routine--applying one mascara in multiple layers with a large, dense brush and then de-clumping with a coat or two from a fine brush--this really did blow my mind. I've used falsies, the eyelash extensions that use the little fibers, and just about every other product out there and nothing compares!

I found my new favorite mascara!
Purchased

Ok, this is now my official go-to mascara forever more!
Long, luscious lashes that are clump-free, long-lasting, and I don't look like a raccoon by the end of the day. I
Mascara is one of the most important products in my beauty regime. I've tried many, but this one is Numero Uno in my book!
I recently purchased different brand at 3 times the price of Benefit They're Real! and I'll probably give that one away.

LOVE THE SMALLER WAND
Purchased

I own the full size and sample size of this product. The sample size wand is smaller and can get more lift and those smaller areas. I love this size. I sometimes dip my small wand into my full size product for my lower lashes.

Awesome!

This mascara makes lashes look longer and thicker just as it promises! The only complaint I have with it is that it stays wet longer than the typical mascara often getting on my eyelids. But that is a pretty minor problem for such a good mascara I would definitely recommend this product!

disappointing
Purchased

I was really looking forward to trying this mascara after reading all of the reviews, but I ended up bring really disappointed. I LOVE mascara and trying new ones out. This one made my lashes very fake looking and clumpy. I gave it a couple of tries hoping that it would get better, but looks like I will be sticking with others.

so bummed!!!!
Purchased

I have another brand of mascara I received in a sample box that I LOVED!!! BUT it is super expensive and not on the Birchbox site. After reviewing a ton of mascaras, I decided to buy BENEFIT as I could use my points. I only had to pay $2 toward it and I am thankful for that! I also only got the mini travel size - thank goodness!!!! The mascara was just like anything I had bought in a drugstore and was SUPER wet and clumpy. Too much on the brush even after I wiped it before I applied. After reading all those great reviews I was really disappointed.

Amazing

This is hands-down the absolute best mascara I've ever used. The uniquely shaped bristles really grab onto each individual lash and stretches it as far as it goes. What's nice about the bristles is that they're thicker at the base and slim out towards the ends; what this does, is give each individual lash its own space, as well. Which really opens the eye and gives the lashes extreme volume. The silky smooth consistency of the mascara itself is nice as well. However, I wouldn't recommend this mascara for people who are not familiar with how to apply different types of mascara onto their eyelashes. It has the potential to poke and hurt the eyes if you don't have a steady and careful hand while applying.

One of the best
Purchased

I have used a few different products from benefit, but I had never tried their mascera, so I was excited to try it. I loved it. It made my lashes look full, long, and seperately. No clumps, no fall out or smudging. It lasted all day as if it were waterproof. I would definitely purchase the full size.

This product was great.

Does exactly what it's supposed to do. It doesn't clump. Really does look like you put on false lashes. Highly recommend it.
