Benefit They're Real! Mascara Review

Benefit They're Real Mascara - Currently £16.82 at Lookfantastic!

I really wish I didn't like this mascara, even with the 10% off price it's the most expensive mascara I've ever owned but it's just so. darn. amazing. They're Real is said to lengthen, curl, volumise, lift, and seperate - from the photo above ('scuse my creepy grey eyes) you can see this is pretty true after just one coat!
I'm normally not one to rave about a plastic brush but this is great, the bristles on the end manage to grab those pesky corner lashes on the inner lid and can also be used to curl the outer lashes. It's a decent size but not too much to handle, and this brush is the only one I've ever used that doesn't make my lower lashes clump.
The formular has staying power but isn't a nightmare to get off, I applied this at 7:30am and it was still going strong at 7:30 in the evening! I've also found that it doesn't really smudge at all, I'm a major eyerubber when stressed at work and assumed that I'd come home to major zombie eyes - alas I was pleasantly surprised.
Overall I'd really recommend this to anyone who's looking to splash out on a pricier mascara for a special occasion, sadly for my purse I know I'm going to end up using this as part of my everyday routine.

  1. I really liked mine but find that all Benefit mascara dries out quickly. Very good though and nearly as good as my Lancome one which way more pricy. They're Real is one of the best products I've tried in a while x

  6. I'm coming to the end of my urban decay supercurl mascara, not too sure if I should rebuy or buy they're real instead!
    You have gorgeous eyes by the way, they look like they have clouds in them- so pretty!

  8. This mascara looks great but the price tag always puts me off! Although if you think about it there are some high street mascara that aren't far off (I'm looking at you MF false lash effect!).

  9. Oh this looks fab,

    I hated bad gal lash so I've held off trying this but I may be swayed.

  10. When it comes to mascaras the most important fact for me is the seperating. I thankfully do have rather long and dark lashes but still use mascara. I hate nothing more then clumpyness on my eyelids. But for seperating my favorite mascara to use is the High Impact Mascara from Clinique. Still not cheap but I think cheaper than Benefit products. And it goes on forever. Oh, and no smudging :)

  15. Wow, that's an amazing effect! Also, you have pretty grey eyes, not creepy grey eyes. :)

    I have been trying so hard not to buy this because not long ago I bought Lamcome Hynose Doll Eyes, which was waaaay over my usual make-up budjet. I love it, but this looks amazing. I must use my lancome one before buying this. I must!

  21. Oh god, what have you done? I think I'm going to need this- desperately searching for a new mascara that does all of the above. I had hoped to spend a bit less. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

  22. Every rave review of this hurts me a little more as I know one day soon I will have to buy it. I'm trying my best to resist but it looks so darn good! x
