Benefit ‘They’re Real’ Mascara Review

As you all know, when it comes to mascara I’m
a one product kinda girl.  For over a year now I’ve been rocking the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Waterproof and it’s been working
for me.  In fact, it was the only mascara that had ever worked for me…
until now.
A
few weeks ago, I picked up the Benefit ‘They’re Real’ after reading a lot of good reviews.
 Apparently it is the best selling macara in the UK and I can see why.
 I’ve loved using it.  Usually I would hate everything about
this mascara but I have fallen in love!  Firstly, the brush is huge.
 Compared to the super thin L’Oreal one, it is super thick.  It
is easy to use and doesn’t get everywhere.  The main thing I have loved
about the brush is that it has extra fibres on the end that are designed to get
even the smallest and most difficult to reach lashes.  The second thing,
is that it is very wet.  I usually hate mascaras that are too wet and
prefer them when they dry out slightly but this one defiantly works
better when it stays wet.  I feel like it curls the lashes better.
 Finally mascaras that aren’t waterproof usually find their way half way
down my face a few hours after applying them, but this one does not budge…
result!!
Actually
I can’t say anything bad about this mascara and the job it does.  It blew
me away!  My lashes looked long and thick.  I found it easy to build
and my lashes curled up beautifully and the curl lasted for hours.  I can
see why Benefit sell one every 30 seconds!  However I do need to have a
moan about trying to remove it.  WOW it’s a bitch to remove.  Even my
trusty Bioderma struggles… and that can get off the waterproof one no
problemo.
Overall
I really liked this product and would repurchase the smaller tube.  I’m so
glad I got the small one as I keep reading that the big one is useless once it
dries out (which is usually after only using half of the tube) so I will have
to reserve judgement on that one for now.  To be honest, I’ll probably
just keep repurchasing the small bottle as it has worked for me.  Will it
replace my L’Oreal Telescopic permanently?  I don’t think so, but I would
reach for it on a night out if I wasn’t wearing falsies.
Have you used Benefit ‘They’re Real?’  What did you think?
