Benefit – They’re Real! (Honest!)

Forget diamonds- eyelashes are a girls best friend. There aren’t many situations that a good old fluttering of the lashes can’t get you out of, and to achieve this a girl needs a mascara she can rely on.
benefittheyrerealBenefit’s “They’re Real” mascara has been super hyped in the press and by bloggers alike as the must have in the latest mascara technology. Infact, it’s believe that They’re Real is bought once every 20 seconds… thats alot of lashes.

I’ve kept toying with the idea of purchasing “They’re Real”, but at £18.50 it was a bit of a gamble when I’m more than happy with my current mascara… but low and behold, in Saturday’s Birmingham Blogger Meet Up, I was lucky enough to receive the coveted product in my goodie bag.

Why we love it:It’s the mascara that’s beyond belief! This jet-black mascara lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts & separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look.

What else you need to know:The exclusive brush is specially designed to maximize the performance of the long-wearing, glossy formula-revealing lashes you never knew you had! Staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length & volume beyond belief. The precision bristles on the custom-domed tip lift, define & curl even your tiniest lashes. The end result…luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump or dry out.

So how does “They’re Real” measure up?

…I like it. It lengthens my lashes and the specially designed brush allows me to get right to the root of the lash for extra volume. The domed tip was handy at picking up the lashes in the outer corner adding a slight winged look to my lashes. The formulation really is jet black and glossy looking – everything I love in a mascara. It doesn’t give me the dramatic full look that I usually love for a night out, but for everyday wear it certainly gives my lashes a lift and leaves them lengthened and fluttery.

I was told that the only thing I’d dislike about this mascara would be the fact that its notoriously a b!tch to remove. I didn’t feel like it was too b!tching, until I woke up in the morning and was left with tell tale mascara print on my pillow… perhaps a new eye makeup remover may need to be purchased…

Did someone say spending ban?

You can buy “They’re Real” for £18.50 from all Benefit counters, most Boots stores and its available to buy online here.

  • I got a sample of this in my advent calendar and must be one of the few who hate it. It gives me really clumpy lashes and you’re right, is an absolute bitch to get off!

    I love this! I only bought the small size from boots as I wasn’t sure but I will defintely be purchasing the full size product in the near future :)
