I finally got around to trying a mascara that’s been on my must-try list for a while, Benefit’s They’re Real!
I have always loved Bad Gal Lash by Benefit, in fact it was probably my first high-end mascara. Over the years though I have lost the love for my beloved Bad Gal Lash and fell in love with other mascaras from different brands.
I have had a couple samples of They’re Real! lying around here and finally wanted to just bite the bullet and try it out. I have heard so many good things about this mascara so I wanted to see if it would knock my socks off. And it did.
What it is:
A jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look.
What it does:
This mascara features an exclusive brush specially designed to maximize the performance of the long-wearing, glossy formula revealing lashes you never knew you had! Staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The precision bristles on the custom-domed tip lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. The end result is luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out.
The wand is similar to It Cosmetics Hello Lashes but has more bristles to it. It has a slight ball at the end that really lets you get in there and coat every. single. lash. I wouldn’t say my lashes looked fake, but they looked pretty amazing.
As always when I try out mascara for my blog, I curl my right lashes (left in the photos) with my shu uemura eyelash curler and then leave my left ones au natural to see what the curl is like and if a curler actually makes a difference. For this mascara it didn’t really make a big difference, also my left lashes are fuller and longer for some reason so honestly, it’s hard to even tell because they are so different in terms of length and fullness to begin with.
After one coat I was amazed, and then after the second, I ran to my mom and was like “mom, look at my lashes!”. They looked full and fabulous.
Benefit really hit it out of the park with this mascara. I would even say it’s better than Bad Gal Lash. I have so many mascaras and samples to use up, but I definitely think this is will become a staple in my collection.
