Review: Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara

Hello everyone!

There’s been a lot of hype about the Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara, and I wanted to see if it lived up to it. I was waiting in line at Ulta and saw the sample sized version for about $12. I figured, why not?

I was expecting a lot out of this because of other reviews I’ve seen and honestly, I don’t like it. Don’t get me wrong, it does it’s job. It makes my lashes look thicker and longer, but I’m just not a fan of the formula. It’s too thick for me, and is very difficult to remove. I don’t like being harsh on my lashes and I can’t take the mascara off without losing a couple lashes. A lot of people like it for the thickness and since it’s hard to remove, it lasts a long time.

Personally, I prefer the Clinique High Impact Mascara. It give me thick, natural looking lashes, and is easy to remove. The “They’re Real” mascara, gives my the clumpy, spiky look. I hate that look on me. I even tried to de-clump with a lash comb, but even that couldn’t help. If you like that type of look, this is definitely for you!

Overall, I’m not in love with this mascara. In my opinion, there are many drugstore mascaras that can do what this does much better and they cost way less (the regular size is $24!). I hope you guys enjoyed this review!

Thanks so much for reading!
