For Christmas my mom got me the gorgeous Benefit Life Of The Party Kit. One of the products in that kit was the Benefit They’re Real mascara. I absolutely loved it and decided to purchase the full size of it. After trying it out for a while it’s time to share my thoughts with you. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, make sure you keep on reading!
First things first, the packaging. The Benefit They’re Real Mascara comes in a very pretty, quite big, shiny packaging. I really like the shape of it. On the front it says “They’re Real” in a really, really pretty font. I really like the packaging. I think it’s fun, pretty and cute and definitely Benefit proof.
Throughout the past few years, pretty much ever since Benefit launched this mascara, I have heard tons of good things about it. Everyone was in love with it. It was supposed to be one of the best mascara’s they had ever tried and the want was amazing. Even though they were so popular and aside from all the excitement, I never decided to buy it because for some reason I didn’t think it would be that amazing that I would think it was worth the money.
Just like I said like a second ago, one of the reasons why this mascara was/is so popular is because of the wand. The want is pretty special. It’s made out of rubber bristles and has a rounded top. The idea behind it is that you can use the straight part for all of your lashes, and the rounded part for the smaller ones which are harder to reach and it’s perfect for applying the mascara to your bottom lashes.
Even though I never really struggled with nor cared about applying mascara to those smaller lashes, I do like this wand a lot. The main reason why I like it is because it creates an amazingly voluminous effect. I don’t know if it’s because of the rounded part or if it’s just the wand in general, but the way it makes my lashes look is phenomenal.
As you can tell this mascara really lengthens and volumizes my lashes. I absolutely love the look of it. I’m kinda crappy at taking pictures of my eye, but to be honest I don’t think this is bad at all. With this mascara my lashes are super long, they are intense, they are as black as it can be and the volume is just amazing. When it comes to the way it makes my lashes look it’s the best mascara I have ever tried.
Aside from that, there is another reason why this mascara is really, really worth the money. I’m a contact wearer and I struggle with very wet eyes, which causes my mascara to smudge A LOT. Ever since I’ve started baking my under eye area it hasn’t been as bad, but when I use this mascara in combination with baking that area, I don’t have to worry about it smudging at all. It stays in place so well, it’s a life saver for me!
Overall I’m super impressed by the Benefit They’re Real Mascara. It’s literally the best mascara I have ever tried and in my opinion it’s worth every single penny. It might not be the cheapest mascara ever, but the effect, the way it works and the fact that it doesn’t smudge on me makes it totally worth it. I highly, highly, highly recommend giving this mascara a try, it’s definitely worth the splurge!
The Benefit They’re Real mascara is available at Sephora and Douglas for €26,-.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which mascara is your holy grail!
