So, I've tried a fair share of mascaras in my lifetime and I've always never been fully satisfied with any of them. I stumbled upon this mascara a few months back when all the beauty bloggers were raving about it and knew I had to jump on the IT bandwagon. 

They're Real mascara is the first Benefit product I have ever tried and initially, I had my doubts on whether the product was worth the hype or not. The mascara claims to provide length, volume, base-to-tip curl, visibly lifting and long lasting wear. That's a lot asking from a wee little mascara. So, does it do all of those things? Kind of. 

I must say, They're Real mascara immediately elongates the length of my lashes just from its first coating and makes them look a lot more fuller and thicker. Think fluttery eye lashes. I saw instant results as my eyes looked more awake and certainly gave off that fake lash effect whilst still looking natural. The results were so pleasing that I even had people compliment me on how long and curly my lashes were or how pretty and prominent my eyes looked on the day. 

The only negative I hate to have to say is that I do not think this mascara is very long lasting, or at least this was the case for me personally. I feel as though the mascara loses it's 'lift' after a few hours which results to me re-touching and making a clumping mess of my eye half the time from the extra coating or having smudgy spider legs for lashes.  

Despite this however, I still believe that Benefit  have come up with a brilliant mascara. The formula is the perfect consistency without feeling too dry or too wet, and I do think it makes a significant difference to my lashes. Would I repurchase it again? Yes! I think it's totally worth the hype and money, and that's coming from someone who has tried billions of both drugstore and high end mascaras. Kudos Benefit.
