Time and time again have I tried and tested out mascaras, claiming to be the greatest new eye enhancing product on the market. 8 times out of 10, they've left me disappointed. The only three mascaras I've discovered that I've absolutely adored using are: Maybelline's The Falsies, a Fearne Cotton for Boots mascara (that only comes out at Christmas) and then this wonderful invention; Benefit's They're Real! Benefit is by far my favourite makeup brand, and I scream with delight as soon as they announce a new product coming out! To say I was excited for They're Real!, is an understatement. When I finally got my hands on one, I was tremendously excited to whack it on my lashes! I wasn't disappointed at all with it, quite the opposite really. It is literally the BEST mascara I have ever used, ever. I cannot put into words my love for it.
It gives everyone and anyone the most dramatic, full, long and fluttery lashes! The lengthening powers of this mascara is genuinely mind-blowing, it's magic in a tube. The amazing plastic bristle brush, allows the wet formula to glide through your lashes aimlessly. The spiked head of the brush makes it trés easy to reach corner lashes also. It doesn't state on the packaging that it's waterproof, but so far it hasn't budged that much for me in the rain. It lasts all day, and doesn't flake or smudge. It's quite a toughy to remove however, as it's so long-lasting. I find that using my Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil gently removes it in an instant, applied on to some cotton makeup pads.
Some people may find it a tad pricey at around €24, but to be honest I think it's worth every penny - it's unbelievable! I'm currently on my second tube of it, and loving it as much as the first time I used it. I get asked repeatedly am I wearing falsies, I never have to be honest, and find no reason to with this mascara. I couldn't recommend it enough for you all - go to your nearest Benefit counter and ask one of the Benebabes to try it out on you. You'll be so surprised to see how much of a difference it makes, I absolutely adore it. 10/10!
