They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit
Now, this is mascara I swear by. It has taken me years to find the perfect mascara. I, of course, started at the bottom buying from the drug store the cheapest kind of mascara I could. Anything to get my eyelashes to look like they existed at 13. I have never been the girl with dark eyelashes. While I have brown hair, my eyelashes seem to be more on the blonder side.
There are many things I love about this mascara. I was never a waterproof mascara girl. I hated trying to get waterproof mascara off at the end of the day. It was always such a pain, and I’d rather be able to remove it quickly and easily and go to sleep. However, with They’re Real, I get the best of both worlds. I get long-lasting mascara, and I am able to remove it quickly while washing my face before bed. I rarely have to use make-up remover to get it all off, which is a big bonus for me!
They’re Real is a lengthening mascara. I’m not sure about the science behind this and how it all works, but I can tell you for sure that it does work. I would say my eyelashes are about medium length. They are not short by any means, but I am not one of those people that looks like a Disney Princess without putting make-up on either. When I put on this mascara and look up, my eyelashes touch my eyebrows – and I really do not put that much on.
Which brings me to my third favourite part about this stuff: a little goes a long way. A bottle can keep me going for at least two months when wearing it every day. I get a lot of use out of my bottle, and I often get surprised when I run out because I realize how long it has been since I actually bought some.
Benefit really does make a fabulous product in this mascara. It comes in three colours: jet black, beyond brown, and beyond blue, so it can match any mood, style, or outfit you are rocking that day. If I haven’t convinced you yet, I suggest you go to your local make-up boutique and check it out for yourself!
