They're Real! Apparently...



They’re Real! from Benefit is a highly rated mascara pretty much all over the show, but personally, I don’t find it lives up to expectations. I had been “do I? don’t I?” over this product for so long but during my trip to NYC I took a walk into every American girls haven, Sephora and came across the baby sized must have! So for only $10 I took the chance! And I’m quite glad I didn’t splurge on the full size to be honest. For a start I hate these types of applicators, they never do anything for my lashes so the same goes for They’re Real. I was seriously expecting it to make my eyes look big and wide and span all my lashes out to give the false lash effect that the product suggests but it neither emphasises nor lengthens in my opinion. And as for the formula, I find it way too watery, I like mascaras to be less…liquidy if you will? It just doesn’t work well for me and as for its removal, it’s a bugger.

Overall I’m not a fan and can’t say I’ll be repurchasing, but it seems to me that this is just one of them products that you either love or hate!

  1. This is my favourite mascara! I does take a bit of time to build it up but once its drys it is worth it! Shame you didn't get on with it.

  2. Try the Chanel one, I'm sure you'll love it if you don't like this type of application. I find that, this mascara is great for who already has big lashes and big eyes :). I have the benefit bad gal and totally hate it -.-

  3. I done a recent post on this too (3rd post down on my blog) and agree it really is not worth the money. I got mine for free from ELLIE magazine and really disliked it :( it left my lashes so clumpy it was horrible xx

  4. It is definitely a pain to get off! It holds a curl like no other, but doesn't do much for volume. Still-- I love it!

  7. Oh no! I'm glad I read this post because I'd been planning on buying the full sized version of this! I think I'll try and get hold of a mini one first to see if it works for me, my lashes are like little stumps.... I'm following your blog now, it looks great so far. I'd love it if you could check mine out at www.trulypolished.co.uk
