Review: Benefit They're Real! Mascara

A few days ago I asked you lovely lot to vote which sample you wanted me to review (in the mean time I have accumulated another one!). 

And you guys chose...Benefit's They're Real Mascara. 

There's been a lot of blogging about Benefit makeup, unfortunately being a student I can't really afford their products right now, so when this came free in a magazine I was pretty chuffed. 

I'm fairly happy with this mascara. I started using it instead of the Maybelline one which I wasn't very impressed with (you can read about why here).

The brush size is average. I'd prefer it was smaller as I find them easier to use (probably because I have the smallest hands ever!).

The colour is a lovely rich black and covers the lashes well.

The product doesn't smudge under the eyes or do that weird bobbly thing at the end of each lash.

The packaging is ok, a bit dull for the Benefit brand I thought. The sample size is perfect for taking on a night out though.

The only down side is that I find this mascara clumps the eye lashes together instead of giving you that gorgeous sixties full lash look. I STILL keep comparing all my mascaras to my Clinique one and they just aren't matching up! So I would say if you're going to spend some cash on a new mascara, go for Clinique!

Do you have a favourite mascara that you can't live without?

I bought this mascara thinking it was going to change my world and it really didn't. 'They're real,' 'Yeah...they look real.' Haha. Clinique all the way! xx

This mascara has been really hyped up, I'm not sure it could now meet my expectations. Thanks for sharing :) nice to read an honest review.

I agree with all this! I was underwhelmed by this product ): which made me sad because the sample tube I picked up was still $10. More than I usually spend on a full size mascara!
