I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly on the quest to find the perfect mascara. It has to be volumising, lengthening, separates lashes, non clumpy, and very very black. I’m not sure I’m ready to give up the search yet, but Benefit’s They’re Real is pretty close to being perfect. I was a bit reluctant to spend almost £20 on a mascara (especially as I tried Bad Gal ages ago and wasn’t really impressed) but I’m so glad I did as this has definitely become my firm favourite.
As you can see from the picture above, it gives serious length and definition to lashes without making them look clumpy or overdone. The packaging claims to make your lashes look “beyond real” and I think that’s a pretty good description – they don’t look like fake lashes, just your own lashes but better. The best word I can think of to describe the way this makes your eyelashes look is “fluttery”!
I usually apply a coat of this mascara on one eye, then do the other eye, and then go back and run the brush through the first eye again before the first coat dries completely. I find this is the best way to get lots of volume without my lashes sticking together or going clumpy. I love how jet black this mascara is, it really makes your lashes stand out. The wand is plastic and covered in tiny spikes which are really good at getting between your lashes to separate them, and the rounded tip is great for reaching corner lashes.
Overall I think this is an amazing mascara and I will definitely be repurchasing once I’ve used up this tube! I’ve never really used any high-end mascaras before so I’m not sure how this compares, but it’s so much better than my usual favourite msacara brands like Max Factor and Rimmel.
