Benefit – They’re Real Mascara
This post may contain affiliate links.
Am I the only beauty blogger in the whole world who had never tried They’re Real mascara from Benefit? I’ve been reading so many great reviews of this mascara that I nearly jumped for joy when I received a mini 3g tube in my Editor’s Picks collection box from Latest In Beauty.
They’re Real was the UK’s No 1 best-selling mascara in 2012 and has been designed to lengthen, curl, volumise, lift & separate lashes. I particularly like the brush, it’s really long which allows you to coat lots of lashes at once and is covered in tiny plastic ‘bristles’ (it’s a similar brush to my favourite Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, but much longer). There are also bristles all over the end of the brush which allows you to hold the brush vertically and coat those hard-to-reach shorter lashes.
I have been using They’re Real for about a week now. I have to say that the jet black mascara gives a really great finish on the lashes and it is extremely easy to apply with the long brush. My only complaint would be that I do get a bit of smudging both on my brow bone and under my eyes where the longest of my lashes touch the skin when I blink – something that I normally only get with a waterproof mascara. It is also slightly more difficult to remove than many mascaras I have tried, although this is something I can put up with for a truly great mascara!
The image above shows how my lashes look with 2 coats of They’re Real mascara. From the image on the left you can see the lovely, rich jet black colour and from the image on the right where my face is turned slightly you can clearly see the lift and length that my upper lashes have.
I would definitely recommend this mascara and I will be persevering with it… if I can prevent the smudging then this will probably become my every day mascara of choice as it’s so easy to apply.
They’re Real mascara is available from Benefit priced at £19.50. Benefit are currently offering a free mini They’re Real mascara with every full size one purchased.
