Review | Benefit They're Real Mascara...


Hiya Lovelies!

My boyfriend really pulled it out of the bag this Christmas in regards to presents, maybe all this beauty blogging is rubbing off on him after all! One of my lovely presents from him was the Benefit They're Real mascara. It had been on my radar for the longest time but I could never justify spending so much on a mascara, so I was delighted when I unwrapped this!

It's the UK's best selling mascara & Benefit claim that it Lengthens, Curls, Volumises & Separates. What did I think of it then?


Lets start off with the brush. It's the plastic wand type affair that you either love or hate. I personally like this type of wand but I know many people prefer the natural type wand. The ball of bristles at the end help to coat hard to reach lashes and provide lift.



 A few coats of this mascara provides my lashes with intense volume & lift. It's super pigmented & black which I love. The above pictures are my lashes after 2 coats, applying 2 coats isn't a problem but it dries very fast so you have to work quickly to avoid clumping. This mascara lasted a good 6 hours before it started to look a tad 'worn' which is very impressive.

The only downside I can think of is the removal of this mascara. it takes a little longer than my normal mascara would to remove. 

Overall I'm really impressed with this mascara. I don't use it every day due to the price tag but I would certainly be happy to repurchase it when it runs/dries out.

Benefit They're Real is available here priced at £18.50.

I'd love to know if you've tried this mascara & if so what you thought of it.
