Beauty | Benefit They’re Real Mascara Review

benefit they're real mascara product reviewBenefit They’re Real mascara is among my favorites when it comes to lash enhancement.  I usually don’t go for pricey mascaras but I make an exception when it comes to Benefit.  It’s as if they got it all the way right when it comes to everything that look for in a lengthening mascara.

Product Claims & Description

“A jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look.”

“This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had! The specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you’ll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out.”

Does It Do What It Says?

I would consider my lashes to be of medium length but they’re not, by any means, voluminous.  If you notice in the photos, not only do my lashes look elongated with added volume, but they also curled upward as well.  That combination makes for a beautiful, natural-looking lash.

They’re Real makes my lashes appear longer and thicker without clumping so yes, this mascara does what the label says it will do.  I’ve even fallen asleep in this mascara and wake up the next day with no smudges or flakes under my eyes.  That’s some real staying power.

This is my fourth purchase of Benefit They’re Real mascara and I’ve been a fan from day one. As long as Benefit continues to make it, I will continue to be a loyal customer.
