Review | Benefit 'They're Real' mascara

Hey Lovelies! 
Im one of those lucky few people who are blessed with naturally long, naturally curly eyelashes. I've never really had to worry about curling them and I'm asked a lot if they are my natural lashes. 
 But I'm still looking for that mascara that will gave me darker and fuller lashes as mascaras seem to just clump my lashes together.
 I picked up 'They're Real' about a month ago when I saw it by the checkouts in boots, but I've had my eye on it for ages. Theres a lot of hype surrounding the mascara and I was curious to see if it lives up to it.


Benefit Says 
'They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!'

The first thing I noticed was the brush, I love how the bristles curl around the end of the brush, perfect for when you want to get into the corner of your eye. Also even though I picked up the travel sized brush I loved that the actual brush was full sized. Which made me feel better about forking out £9 for a travel sized mascara! Also I love the packaging, which is not surprising seeing as I love Benefits style.

When I apply the mascara you definitely only need one or two coats and the works done. The mascara fans out my lashes and boosts them, I wouldn't say it does a lot for the length of my lashes. But lengthening is never the first thing I look for in a mascara.

One good thing is that the mascara lasts all day, and doesn't smudge either. And even when it comes to taking it off its still there. The only problem then is its a bit of a pain to get off and I've found that even when I think Ive got it all off I end up waking up with a bit of panda eyes.

Over all a good little mascara, maybe slightly pricey at £18.50 for the full size but something I would consider picking up when I've run out of this one. It's probably not targeted for me and my long lashes so I don't see the huge 'wow' factor everyone else does, but still makes my lashes look a lot better and more dramatic with this mascara, and I love knowing I only need to apply it once to have a whole day of brilliant lashes, and They're Real has definitely become a staple part of my daily make up, and one of the best mascaras I've found!

Do you have 'They're Real'? What do you think about it?
