Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

I love gel eyeliner. Most of the time I feel naked without it. I'm a big fan of MAC's and Bobbi Brown's gel liner pots - both of which require a separate thin brush in order to use. Anyone who knows me or has seen me out and about knows that I tend to favour the winged eyeliner. Perfecting the style has taken some time. Just when you think you've got one eye perfect, the other eye looks completely different. One of life's unfair miseries, isn't it? If only I could find a product that would help make the process much easier...

In steps Benefit's newest release: They're Real! Push-Up Liner. With claims of innovation, it is the first ever lash-hugging gel liner pen. I'm sold. To use, simply twist the base to push the matte black gel to the AccuFlex™ tip and slowly guide it along the lash line. I like to mark out the flick first, which is super easy to do because the soft tip is the perfect size and shape, and then fill in the lash line to complete the look. The dark pigment and smooth consistency allow the liner to glide along the lash line. And because it's in pen-form you can pop it in your handbag with no mess!

And did I mention that this beauty is waterproof? Believe me, I've tested it out while working out and in the sea, and I can tell you that it does not budge once applied! The only downside of course is that it's not easy to remove. To avoid scrubbing your eyes out, I found that soaking a cotton wool pad in micellar water was the best option, but have also heard great things about the They're Real Remover, used in the same way.

With its incredible staying power I think it's safe to say that this is one for your summer makeup bag - think holiday survival! Where the hell was this product when I was perfecting my cat eye flick all those years ago?

I'd love to know what you guys think! Have you tried it?

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner retails at £18.50, and is available for Benefit counters and online.

  2. I love the 'They're Real' mascara, but the only thing was trying to get it off! I might get this eyeliner too, as well as the remover so I don't scrub my poor eyes to death! Haha.

    1. That's my only gripe with the mascara - I was literally picking it off at the end of the day because I couldn't get it off any other way. It totally put me off using it! I've found that the longer you wear the eyeliner, the easier it is to actually remove funnily enough. I do recommend the remover though as I'm sure it's specialised to these products! Xx
