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.

One of my favorites

I first tried this mascara a few years ago, when I got it in a set for my birthday. I didn't really understand all the hype, but when I would apply it, it would go on super smooth and not clump, giving my lashes great volume! As I went on to try more mascaras, I realized that none of them topped this. I absolutely love this mascara. The only thing that would make it better is if it was waterproof.

Worked pretty well
Purchased

I feel like it didn't last that long before sort of going bad, even though it was just a mini size. Maybe it's just the one I got. I really liked it for the first week, though!

Love This Product!

This gives the look of fake lashes! (Obviously, if you don't have length, it's not going to add that much length) Luckily I was blessed with long lashes and I have finally found a mascara that compliments that, and doesn't just clump them all together! This mascara is the lightest, clumpless, most curling mascara I have tried. The description claims it adds length and volume, which I don't believe to be true. If you don't have it, you don't have it and there isn't much a product can do to help with that. It does, however, emphasize what you DO have! And it does it great!

Lasting!
Purchased

This mascara is very lasting on my long lashes! It has stayed put all day for me. (I even need the remover to get it off - I'd say buy the remover if you are buying this product!) I like the ease of application, too!

My new favorite mascara
Purchased

I love, love, love this mascara. It has one of the rubbery applicators as opposed to a traditional mascara wand, which I find to be much easier to apply and less prone to clumping or collecting too much product in one area. It goes on super smooth, adds great length and looks pretty natural. I don't like to glob on tons of mascara and this one does a great job with just one coat. It also lasts through the day without streaking or flaking down my face. It even survived 6 hours at a theme park on a humid day.

Best mascara by far....
Purchased

I just bought this and already I'm ordering a second one. It gives the eyes a wow factor that you achene with false lashes.

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.
