Benefit They're Real! Mascara

Benefit They're Real! Mascara - £18.50 

For a few years now I've worn fake eyelashes pretty much every time I have applied my makeup. I just love the fullness and drama it gives to my eyes that no mascara alone could achieve before. 

Benefit's They're Real! mascara is pretty much as good a mascara as you can get as far as length, curl and dramatic lashes without the use of false lashes. This product has been on my wishlist since it came out, and when I finally took the plunge (jumping on the bandwagon a bit late, I know) I have to say that I wasn't disappointed with it. The wand is great because it has comb-like bristles at the very tip which is brilliant for getting your corner lashes and the lashes under your eyes. I love the finish it gives my eyes as well - it really lifts and volumises the lashes, and fans them out so they don't appear clumpy at all. I actually wore this mascara yesterday and my driving instructor asked if I had fake lashes on! Definitely had to use the name-sake - "Nope, they're real!"

The only problem I had with the product is that when it's applied, it really grabs the lashes and stays on, making it difficult to remove before I go to bed. Ideally, using an oil-based cleanser would get it off quicker than a simple makeup remover. However I feel this is justifiable because it's such a wonderful product overall.

Have you used Benefit's They're Real! mascara? What's your favourite mascara?


  1. I really want this mascara!! I just find it a bit pricey... xx

  2. I think the Simple eye makeup remover could possibly help with removing this but I've never tried this mascara before so I can't be too sure :( Great pictures and post x
