Happy Friday loves! Instead of DIY Friday, I wanted to talk about They're Real! Mascara by Benefit Cosmetics (retails $23.00 at Sephora) in jet-black color. I usually use the DiorShow Blackout and I thought it was time for a change since I haven’t used any other mascara in months so I decided to take my chances with They're Real! by Benefit.
What drew me to this mascara in the first place was the box and what this mascara claims to do: This claims to curl, volumize, lift, lengthen, and separate lashes..
94% Saw dramatic length & volume
90% Saw base-to-tip curl
94% saw visible lift
100% saw long-wearing results
So… does all this hold true? Yes, however, it depends on how you like your lashes. I like my lashes super voluminous, thick, and curled. Here is the "before" picture:
What I first noticed was how the wand is designed. It separates all your lashes and does not clump up your lashes. The only downside to this is that you have to apply A LOT of coats in order to see a significant difference. I did also notice visible lift and my lashes did seem to curl upwards – I am guessing due to how the wand was designed. And Lastly, yes, this mascara is long-wearing. I had trouble getting it off but nothing that a great makeup remover won’t be able to get off. And here is the "after" picture!
So, is this mascara worth the price? For me, I would say no. However, I think this mascara works great for work time – nothing crazy just simple and really separates your lashes.
