Benefit They're Real! Mascara



I'm so excited about today's review! I have wanted this mascara for as long as I can remember. I always thought that £19.50 was a lot of money to spend just for a mascara though, so I stopped myself from buying it. However, when I was at the Cosmo Careers Masterclass earlier last month, I received one of these in my goodie bag. As you can imagine, I couldn't of been happier.

Hev from Farewell to the Fairground reviewed this mascara and let me know that I would absolutely love it. She definitely wasn't wrong. We share very similar tastes in mascara and what I like she generally likes too.



I absolutely adore the packaging of this mascara. I think that it is so luxurious and different some all other packaging I have seen. I don't know why but just looking at it makes me really happy. Probably because I have wanted it for so long!



It has a plastic wand which is absolutely amazing at getting into the inner corners. This is probably the best mascara I have found for both inner and outer lashes. It seems to grab every last hair and coat them equally. I just use the end of the wand for the hairs I can not reach and it works like a dream. This is probably the only mascara wand that I can use in a variety of different ways too.


(Left is without mascara, right is with two coats of They're Real!)

I do feel that I get both length and volume from this mascara. However if I was to be really picky, I would say that it's more length and separation that I really notice. I think the name 'they're real' is really appropriate because it doesn't necessarily add more lashes to what you already have, but it lengthens them and makes them look the best that they can. It doesn't smudge or flake. It just looks flawless all day.

I do think that it's worth splurging on. However I also feel that it's quite expensive for a mascara. Having said that, it's a pretty standard price for Benefit Cosmetics.

Can you find a similar mascara on the market for cheaper? Of course you can! But it's never going to be this mascara and this one just makes me feel... well.. happy!

    1. Really? Eeek, that's a bit scary. Mine's new so it'll be interesting to see how long it lasts. I might even go as far to say that it is my favourite mascara at the moment! xxo

  5. This mascara is Amazing! I went to a Harvey Nichols & Grazia event last night and had a benefit makeover and when they put this on me i just thought 'Wow!' i was so tempted to buy it but as you said at the start of the review, seems a lot of money to spend but i might just have to take the plunge!

    1. I would say it's worth splurging on at least once. Maybe not every time you run out of it though, because from past comments it doesn't last very long and dries out! xxo
