What I love Benefit They’re Real Mascara:

I never knew about this product until one day when I walked into Boots and picked it for a fancy name. The SA showed me her eyelashes and asked me “aren’t they wonderful?” Well, they were actually! So, she tried it on me and it didn’t come out that well because I was already wearing a mascara, but still it was good enough for me to buy it.

I love this mascara and have been using it for the last couple of months and its currently on its last legs. It is a jet black mascara, goes on well and doesn’t dry too quickly. It gives you a little time to separate lashes if you wish to. It definitely is an elongating and voluminizing mascara, gives you a dramatic look, almost like false lashes if you apply it generously.

Its not exactly waterproof,but definitely water resistant. Wouldn’t run if you happen to get wet in the rain (tried and tested by me), but isn’t exactly difficult to clean like the waterproof ones.  This comes off with a normal cleanser.

It gives my eyes an instant lift and according to me works better than a lot of mascaras I have tried including a few L’Oreal and MAC ones. Its good for people who aren’t really comfortable using false lashes yet like the heavy lashes look.

  • Quick pick me up mascara, this can you give an instant “wake up” look to the eyes.
  • Volumizes and elongates.
  • Water resistant, yet easy to clean.

Cons of Benefit They’re Real Mascara:

  • Expensive, as mascaras don’t last really long.
  • Non-availability as its available in metros, only in Sephora though!

Verdict on Benefit They’re Real Mascara:

Love this product. Works hard and results are good! Definitely more suited for evening outs than office wear 🙂

Would it recommend Benefit They’re Real Mascara to anyone?

Definitely, would be repurchasing soon and recommend to anyone who loves the false lash look!

  1. Love this mascara! It makes my eyelashes so full and long, the only bad thing about this is that I really couldn’t remove it with any makeup remover! That’s why I didn’t repurchase it, with which makeup remover do you remove it?

    1. Hey Emily
      I use olive oil in a cotton pad and put it on my eyes for a few seconds and then gently rub off works each time! 🙂

  2. I’m just looking n looking at your eyes…man they are so mesmerizing…honestly you got such lovely eyes and the eye-makeup n mascara adds to it.
