Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara


Benefits 'They're real' mascara had huge hype surrounding its release over two years ago that has only grown over the years. I did give it a try when it was released and had mixed opinions but never repurchased until now! Ever on the quest for the perfect mascara that'll give me length and volume I wanted to give this another go.

The 'They're real' mascara has a plastic wand that is covered in small spikes to cover and coat every single lash. The custom domed tip of the wand is designed to reach those tiny, fustrating inner and outer corner lashes that really does its job. I like my mascara to be ultra black which this certainly is and love how it dries just as glossy as it applies. It gives the perfect balance of length and volume that I look for with minimum effort and can be easily built up. I do find the formula very wet and sticky which is what I felt the first time I tried it. I do find removing it tricker than all my other mascaras but I almost find that a good point as even though its not waterproof I know it wont end up down my face! 

Although I have found the same little niggles as with using it the first time around the positives do out weigh the negatives and as long as I don't rub my eyelashes into one giant sticky eyelash this shall stay in my make up bag!

Have you tried Benefits 'They're real?' I recently was gifted a couple of Benefit mini sets that I cannot wait to sha with you all, they are so great for trying out the brands best products! 


  1. I wasn't too sure on this either until I got a sample in a magazine and I love it! I purchased after I finished my sample, and two of my friends did after pinching mine while getting ready for a night out! xx

  2. I've heard so many mixed reviews about this so I never know if I should get it or not x


  3. I feel like I'm the only blogger who hasn't tried this yet! I've read some mixed reviews on it, but it still sounds very intriguing! Great review, love the pics. xx

  4. I have been in love with this mascara since it first came out, I'm probably on my third tube hehe :P
