Benefit – They’re Real Mascara

Hello guys,

I am finally starting to review some of the products I got from London, which I have been testing for a while now. The first product I will review is the most raved about Mascara ever, which is the Benefit – They’re Real Macara. I was really excited to try this mascara because of great reviews I’ve read, but it turned out to be a bit of disappointment. Mind you it’s not a bad mascara, I seriously love how it separates my lashes, but I have no idea why there is such a hype about it. I do still have mixed feelings about this product, which you will notice from my pros and cons.

Pros:

  • I love the packaging it reminds me of a 50’s style mascara, it comes in a black box with orange typography, while the actual mascara has a nice silver/grey squarish shape.
  • I love how it separates the lashes, the brush is the main reason for that because it’s like a hard comb to the lashes.
  • Makes lashes really long
  • Easy brush to use, even if the brush is a little bit weird
  • It’s jet black

Cons:

  • Being that I have thick and heavy lashes it clumps them after to many layers.
  • It didn’t give me any volume
  • The brush is a bit to hard for my taste, the first time I applied the mascara I almost hurt my eyes, but once you get used to it, its OK.
  • If I don’t layer up, it doesn’t look like I have any mascara on
  • It is a bit expensive for such a mascara, i got it for about €24 which is about £19.

Will I ever buy this product again? Not sure to be honest, I like how it seperates my lashes but it doesn’t give me any volume. Mixed feelings :/

Do I recommend it? If you are looking for a mascara that separates your lashes and gives you length, I highly recommend it but if you are looking for volume then this is not your mascara.
