Review: Does Benefit “They’re Real!” Mascara Really Work?


Benefit markets They’re Real! mascara as a super mascara that would almost cause one to wonder if you’re wearing false lashes. Put to the lie detector test, when asked if your lashes are real, you’d pass! Now, I love mascara as much as the next lady, and to be honest, nothing has worked better for me than L’Oreal’s Voluminous. I’ve just tried a lot of mascaras and none of them were worth the extra $10-$15 investment. Hence, when Benefit sent me their new mascara, I decided to put it to the test. Do a comparison between my stand by and They’re Real!

They’re Real! put to the test:

When first putting on, there wasn’t much to be noticed with the difference. I always put on one coat, let it set and put on a second coat. At first I didn’t see much of a difference until we took the photos. It was clear that They’re Real! had plumped my lashes much more than Voluminous. Now, they both had about the same length, but the plumping was certainly unsurpassed.

Wearing through out the day, I noticed They’re Real! did not flake, and when it came to taking off my makeup, it requires an eye makeup remover, which I’m not used to using in addition to my regular facial cleanser. Is it worth it? I’d say yes, my lashes are really lush. As lush as wearing false lashes? No… but good enough.
