What I found:
I first bought this mascara over two years ago. Back when I first started blogging. I heard such great things about this mascara. Now a-days you don’t hear much about it because it’s pretty old in the mascara world, and new mascaras just push old ones to the back of peoples mind. But there’s a reason that even without it getting a lot of press anymore this is still a cult favorite.
I suffer from oily skin, and teary eyes. So makeup tends to smudge and wear away with me, especially anything around the my lashes, and lower lash line. I was on the hunt for a great non smudgey wear all day mascara. I was a little hesitent to try this because they don’t advertise this as a waterproof mascara, but boy does this last!!
|With Benefit They’re Real!|
I start most makeup wearing days around 9am. I don’t wash my makeup off till around 9 or 10 pm. So after 12 hours the only thing that lasts is my mascara and liquid liner. That is really saying a lot about the wear time of this mascara.
I even have to say this mascara resist against moderate cry, but if you’re crying rivers this will run. But cry while watching a movie? You don’t have to worry about tear streaks from your mascara!
|What My lashes look like without mascara!|
|With Benefit They’re Real!|
- Long wearing
- Gives volume
- Gives TONS of length!
- Can be a B*&%$ to remove
- Can be pricey, depending on what size you buy.
What size do I buy?
I know I’ve had to say this a ton of times, BUT it should still be said. A travel size of Benefit They’re Real lasts for 3 months. Which no matter what mascara you use you should throw out the mascara after 3 months of use. NO EXCUSES! I’m seriously ladies, no one wants pink eye or other gross things that get trapped in your old mascara tubes!
So that being said buying a travel size of Benefit They’re Real will only cost you $10 which is around the price you would pay for some of the ones in the drugstores!
How to remove:
Like I said before it’s a B&%$@ to remove. I found the best way to remove it is with an oil based makeup remover. I actually use baby oil as an eye makeup remover. It’s still tough to remove with baby oil.
- Pour some on one side of my cotton ball and let it soak on my eye for a few seconds.
- Then I flip it to the other side pour some more on, let my eye makeup soak under it for a few seconds before I start to rub lightly off my lashes and eyes. It comes off easily after I take those steps.
VERDICT: Like I said from the very beginning. I am in love with this mascara! It does wonders for my thin, sparse lashes. I love the length and volume it gives. My lashes just look full! I love it! (Clearly I know, I know) I strongly recommed for everyone to at least try this once. This is holy grail status! Don’t forget buy the travel size! It’s the ‘deluxe sample size’ Runs from $10-23.
