Benefit They're Real Mascara Review!

I've wanted to try the Benefit They're Real Mascara since everyone was raving about it last year, but I never got around to it . But this mascara is part of the Sephora birthday gift this year, so I was really excited to be able to try this! I've used this mini size for about 2 weeks, so I thought I'd go ahead and share my thoughts on it!

Benefit They're Real! Price: $23 for full size, $10 for mini size



Packaging: The packaging is shiny and gray with a plastic wand. The bristles are short, and on the end of the wand there is a small spiky ball. I love this wand! It's so easy to get the inner corner lashes and the lower lash line!


Here is a picture of my bare eyelashes:


And here are my lashes with 2 coats of the mascara on:




This gave me lots of length, separation and some volume! I also didn't curl my eyelashes, but it gave me that lifted effect. I have used more volumizing mascaras, like Maybelline the Rocket Mascara, but I love the combination of volume and length on this because I don't experience lots of clumping!

This isn't waterproof, but I've never had this smudge on me. I've exercised and sweated with this on and it didn't move. It does come off pretty easily with makeup remover though!

Overall, a little pricey but worth it! If you aren't sure about it I would go for the mini size first to try it out! I will most likely repurchase this in the full size soon. The Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara is still my favorite mascara, but this is my new favorite high end mascara!

Have you tried this mascara? What's your current favorite mascara?

    1. I just looked at your post, and this gave you some amazing length! I see what you're saying about volume though. It's amazing how different mascara can be on different people!

  5. I didn't like this, but I think it makes your lashes look amazing. I think it works best on naturally curled lashes and not stick straight lashes like mine. :)

    1. I'm getting the full size soon too! I usually can't justify buying high end mascaras, but this is worth it to me!

  7. I thought this was okay, not my fav but still okay. I like your contacts! I use to wear them as well when I was younger even though I don't have a prescription of any kind lol I got annoyed with them though.

    1. Thank you! My eyes are really bad, so I have a prescription. I figured I might as well go with a fun color instead of clear! lol
