I purchased the Benefit ‘They’re Real’ mascara for the third time on 12/7/13 for £18.50. Like all Benefit products, the packaging is very eye- catching and appealing. The actual tube is a grey/ silver with black and orange graphics, which reminds me a little of comic books and it contains 8.5g, a fairly average size in my opinion.
Application wise, ‘They’re Real,’ sweeps on easily, the consistency is perfect for me, not to thick, not too runny. After 2-3 coats I was absolutely amazed at how long, separated and thick my lashes looked. The real innovation in this mascara is the wand though, it’s plastic with a little round spiky head on the end which is designed to coat even the tiniest lashes and the best part is, it really does work!
I have no doubt that I will purchase this mascara again and again and I highly recommend it. In fact, true to it’s name, people have asked me if I’m wearing false lashes when I have it on!
The only downside for me is the fact that it can smudge a little on the lower lashes as the day goes on which is really annoying, but I just fix this with a tissue. So, to sum up: The Good: Easy application, longer, thicker lashes, wand reaches and coats every lash with ease. The Bad: can smudge on the lower lashes.
