Benefit: They're Real Mascara

Finding the perfect mascara can prove difficult. Some of us may prefer length over volume or vice versa, I crave both! If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I have three holy grail mascaras, each have been reviewed here: Mascara 1, Mascara 2, Mascara 3

Having heard mixed reviews regarding Benefit's "They're Real Mascara" I was a little hesitant to test it. Being a beauty blogger, I felt it was my duty to give it a go, seeing as it has been out for a very long time now! I also have always had great experiences with other products from Benefit in the past. 

Of course, Benefit did not let me down! I love this mascara, especially the wand. The wand has a medium length plastic head with a small round tip on the end! This is exciting because it makes coating those pesky little lashes on the inner corner of the eye much easier. Benefit claim that this mascara "lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts and separates" which in my opinion is a pretty big list of claims! After testing the mascara out for a few weeks, I can definitely see that it lengthens and curls. It also does a very great job at separating the lashes. I do also see some volume but not as much as I have with other mascaras. 

Overall, I think that this is definitely in my top 10 list of mascaras. The formulation is great. It is non flaky and causes no clumps on my lashes what-so-ever. I have also noticed that this mascara seems to be quite water resistant. Not to the point where it is impossible to wash off but does not smudge AT ALL and is a little bit tougher to remove than your everyday mascara which in my opinion, is pretty amazing!



  1. I've tried this mascara as well, but didn't like it too much...L'Oreal Telescopic is the best of them all :)

    1. I think it is just one of those products that works well for some and not so much for others. I believe there may be an issue with the formulation being too dry in some purchase cases, making the mascara dry and clumpy. In my case, I was lucky :) I love L'Oreal Telescopic too, have not used it in a very long time though. Burberry Effortless mascara is my No.1 though <3

  2. I have been using the Benefit They're Real mascara for the past month now and for me your review is really on point! It's not the best volumizing mascara but I enjoy how it doesn't clump and stick your eyelashes together! Definitely a favorite know!


    1. Thank you!

      I have started to use it mainly as a bottom lash mascara now for days when I need a little extra "oomph" as it never, ever seems to smudge!



I love to read your comments!
