Benefit, They're Real... Do Believe the Hype!

I blogged about this mascara last month asking if it was "the Best Mascara ever?" I can't say there was an over whelming response but Benefit's They're Real Mascara didn't become the best-selling beauty product on the market for nothing and as a beauty blogger and mascara obsessive, how could I not buy it? Then, as if by magic, that very same week it showed up on Buyapowa  and I got it for the knock down price of £12.50... it would have been rude not to!

Down to the important stuff. Is it good? No, it's BRILLIANT! It's rare that a product does what it says on the tin, but this one does, and then some!

The special formula lengthens, thickens and curls lashes, and when I say curls, I mean CURLS! Seriously is there some perm solution in it? Because I looked like I'd used eyelash curlers. The precision brush separates lashes perfectly, giving you lashes you didn’t even know you had. It's quite similar to L'Oreal's False Lash Telescopic Mascara (review here), which I also love, but this wand isn't bendy and flexi, making it much easier to manoeuvre and the added spikes at the tip of the brush are great for teasing the roots.  The jet black, long-wearing formula doesn’t smudge or dry out and doesn't leave behind any fibre specks like some.

The result - va, va,VOOM lashes! Three people asked me if I was wearing falsies. So, is it the best mascara ever?I'm not sure, I'm still a Lancome Hypnose gal at heart and I'm currently enjoying the aforementioned L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara, that said, this one's an instant hit... let's see if it stands the test of time.


  1. Waouw this actually looks like you're wearing fake eyelashes ! Brilliant ! xx

  2. I know this is an old post but I've been googling this mascara for an hour lol. A year later what is your take? I'm definitely buying it this weekend!

  3. Your lashes and brows are amazing, love ur blog claire x

  4. As far as I know, it is difficult to remove this mascara. Have you experienced such a problem? If yes, which product/brand do you recommend for removing this?

    1. I have NOT experienced any problems removing this mascara. It's not stubborn at all. The Benefit push up liner can be difficult to remove but not the mascara x


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
