Benefit They’re Real Mascara

They’re Real mascara by Benefit is a cult favourite and has been since its release a few years ago. At the time of its release it sold out regularly thus making it hard to get a hold of.  

Everyone seemed to love it, I don’t recall seeing bad reviews of it at the time, however I’m sure there were some.  I had a sample size of this mascara and the matching They’re Real Eyeliner so I decided to give it a try and see what all the fuss was about.  

The bristles and wand are rubbery and small so I was a little unsure of this mascara first off and wondered how it would work on top lashes. 

It doesn’t give the length or volume that I want, it makes my lashes look spidery.  It flakes off, so I know that a few hours after I apply it, it’s going to be down my face and I don’t want that.

I wear mascara because I want volume, length and separation, what I don’t want is my lashes to look clumpy or spidery.

At €27 its expensive.  Maybelline’s Lash Sensational is much better and it is half the price too.

If it gave the length, volume and separation I wanted and it didn’t flake, I’d probably consider purchasing it, but given it does nothing I want any mascara to do, regardless of how much it is, I won’t be repurchasing it and I couldn’t recommend it unfortunately.
