I’m a makeup purist, but if there’s one thing I like to go a bit daring with it’s my eyelashes. Since I don’t wear a lot of makeup, I’m constantly searching for a mascara that makes my long lashes look fuller and my eyes pop. Have I found it in Benefit They’re Real! mascara? Keeping reading to find out…
Product: Benefit They’re Real! mascara
Details: An inky-black, long-lasting mascara that makes lashes look long and voluminous while keeping their curl in tact.
Price: $24 at Sephora
Pros: Lengthening and volumizing with the help of a strategically spiky plastic brush.
Cons: Long-lasting to a fault.
Final Say: I give They’re Real! a 4 out of 5. I’ve been using it for a little more than a month now and I love how long, full, and dramatic my lashes look and how easily they keep their curl with this formula. The plastic, spiky wand is awesome, too–the staggered bristles lift from the root for extra umph and also help me apply the mascara evenly. The only downside? I appreciate the long-lasting formula, but removing the mascara can be a pain. No matter how much I tug at my lashes with makeup remover, I feel like they’re never 100% clean when I go to sleep.
