review: benefit they’re real mascara

Happy Thursday, loves! As we continue on with our feature on high end mascara with one of Sephora’s best selling mascaras. Benefit’s They’re Real claims to make your lashes look so much like falsies that you’ll have to actually tell people they are real.

prices range:

$22.00 at benefitcosmetics.com in a set with a deluxe sample of liner and remover

$24.00 at benefitcosmetics.com

$24.00 at sephora.com

$24.oo at ulta.com (free gift w/ purchase)

They’re Real has a rubber bristled brush (say that five times fast). There are mostly really short bristles mixed in with some medium length to get in to the root of the lash. At the end of the wand the bristles come to a little half circle that is intended for the inner corner lashes and lower lashes.

Now this mascara claims to lengthen your lashes to new heights but I think it is underwhelming. I find that it is such a wet formula that it really clumps your lashes together. You also have to be careful to not blink too aggressively or you’ll ruin your eyeshadow.

Similar to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, the brush comes out with way too much product. The bristled end only useful if you wipe off the extra product at least 5 times and even then its very easy to get mascara on the inner corners and lower lids.

Im actually really surprised that it is so highly acclaimed on beauty sites because it doesn’t give impressive length and is just a wet spidery mess. If you want to give it a shot I highly recommend trying out the smaller version to see if its worth your money. I had the same problem as the Benefit Roller Lash with it irritating my eyes so I would keep that in mind.

As always please recommend any other products you would like to see me test out! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog on the right hand side of the page, so you receive updates when I post. Thanks for all the love & support. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the last mascara review! Talk to you tomorrow, loves.

love & lipstick kisses💋
