Benefit They're Real Mascara







Benefit They're Real Mascara: £18.50*

They're Real is something I really didn't want to give into the hype about. The ridiculous amount of buzz about it was off putting for me and just made me feel like it wouldn't work - how's that for reverse psychology?! Even when my friend Hayley - a bonafide BeneBabe - recommended it to me I wasn't having any of it. I first received a sample sized version in my goody bag from the Cosmo Ultimate Women Of The Year 2012 Awards and since then I'm a total convert!

At first, the main concern I had with the mascara as to why it wouldn't work for me, comes down to the brush. I don't normally get on with plastic bristles and tend to favour softer ones, but this wand really seems to know what it's doing! A few strokes gives my lashes intense lift, volume and curl without clumping and the finish is very black, which is just what I like. I find with the formula that you can apply more than one coat, but once it's dry it can be difficult to build up so act quickly. It's long-wearing but at the same time is pretty easy to remove, so all in all I'm very happy to repurchase and recommend this - sometimes products really are worth their hype! Have you tried They're Real?

  1. It does look lovely, but I really couldn't justify £18.50 on a mascara haha x

  4. I really don't want to try this because I fear I will love it, although cheaper mascaras tend to work on my lashes too!

  10. You're so pretty! I want to get this mascara too but I don't know whether it is worth its hefty price tag. x

  11. A woman at a beauty counter tried this on me today and it wasn't my cup of tea - it felt too harsh for me and just looked like I was wearing a lot of mascara (she did pile it on a bit though!) when I just like a thin layer of brown mascara (bit boring ha). I've seen it on others though and it does seem to look great.

  12. It looks beautiful on you but I can't make it work for me. I like to build my mascara until it's really thick but I find this dries too quickly so I end up with spider lashes if I try to build it :( xoxo

  13. I've tried this a couple of times but was never a huge fan... Which is annoying as in general I LOVE benefit! You look gorgeous though xo

  20. I am so, so tempted. As payday approaches I can feel my eyelashes fluttering with anticipation.
    However, I didn't like Benefit Bad Gal lash and people raved about that as well, so maybe I'll keep an eye out (boom boom) for a sample size or freebie with Glamour magazine or something first. Thanks for the review, you look wonderful x

  25. I love this mascara! I hope you don't mind me asking what lipstick are you wearing in the first photo? It's beautiful and have you wrote a review on it? X

  26. Your lashes look amazing and really bring attention to your eyes! Even with your lovely lipstick on! Never tried They're Real, however, I used to always buy BadGal lashes from Benefit so will give They're Real a try!

  28. I haven't tried it because I'd always been put off by the price, but it HAS had a lot of hype so I might have to give in!

  31. I've always wanted to try this mascara as I've heard nothing but good reviews about it. It looks great on you. It's a little on the pricier side as far as mascara goes so it has to be worth it! xx

  39. I bought this a few months back as I'd always heard the hype over Benefit mascaras and wanted to see what all the hype was about, and I have to say I definitely agree with all the good press!
    In the past I've had a lot of trouble finding a mascara which actually works with my eyelashes - they all either clump the lashes together or just look as if they've tinted them - but this Benefit mascara is perfect for me!
    It was an expensive buy (for the pauper student that I am) but would honestly say its worth the money
    Only problem I have found is that its hard to get off, it stays on too well!

  45. I really want to try it but i wish they made it in brown! Not really a fan of black mascaras on my pale face!

  46. What eyeshadows are you wearing in the picture? Looks great! I hardly ever wear black mascara – brown just suits me so much better – so let's hope they bring out a brown version soon! x x

  47. What do you use to remove mascara? Because I found They're Real really hard to remove. I felt like I was removing it for 3 days afterwards... Not sexy. Haha.

  48. I totally know what you mean abou the hype putting you off! You've always got to remember that everyone is different, especially with makeup! I'd love to try this but I find that there are always good cheap options with mascara. For some reason I find it harder to spend more on mascara, even though I think its something I couldn't live without!!

  49. I haven't tried this mascara because I have seen it look really clumpy on a lot of girls but it looks perfectly natural on you!

  51. That mascara looks really nice, I've heard so many great things about it!
    But I don't think I'm ready to give up my Smoky Lash by MUFE and my False Lashes by MAC, they're amazing too!

  52. I love this mascara! It's my all time fave. I've yet to find another one that gives my lashes length and volume

  53. Am soo tempted to try this but I've heard that it's really hard to get off! What did you use to take it off?

  57. I really liked this mascara, it makes my lashes look massive! It's great and separating, lengthening and for getting all of the smaller lower lashes. I found mine to flake throughout the day though? Maybe that's just mine?

  59. thank you! i've been tempted to purchase that palette, its a tad more expensive to get it in the Philippines where i'm currently living. i think i just might cause it just look so classy!

  60. Thank you for reviewing this ha! (: I really am in need of a new mascara right now as mine just makes mine look clumpy and just ugh! So I will have to get my hands on this. (: x
