It's a really great mascara. Does not smudge or flake, holds curl and gives me volume and extra length. The thing about me is I have quite long lashes naturally and when I wear mascara, the tip of my lashes smudges/rubs off my brow bone. With They're Real! this is not a problem. There are mascaras out there that are just as good as this one. But I must say this one is worth every penny. And I love the applicator brush!
Make your lashes look thick and long, but smudges on my upper lids--bad. I tried L'oreal Double Extend on one eye and They're Real on the other and Double Extend left me with just a little smudges. I had to wipe my lid throughout the day with They're Real. This mascara is a bit clumpy if you're not careful with the application. Just a small amount of flaking.
I love this mascara! I have teeny tiny eyelashes & this just makes them look so freaking long! I have the travel size so once that runs out I will be buying the bigger version.
I usually love benefit products but not this one. The wand is spiky and difficult to work with. This makes my eyelashes flat and chunky, like spider legs. Terrible product, cheaper products do a better job. Dont bother curling your eyelashes.
I had high hopes for this mascara, but it did not hold my curl, which is a deal breaker for me. If I apply it over my waterproof full n soft, it looks great, very dramatic. But on its own, it immediately makes my lashes stick straight. For the price, I feel like I shouldn't have to purchase a separate mascara to hold my curl. It should do it all on its own. For that reason, I won't be repurchasing.
I was very doubtful that this mascara could make my lashes look like falsies since I have straight Asian lashes that are somewhat sparse. I must say though I do really enjoy this product.
Pros: Lengthens AND volumizes my lashes which are hard to find for me for some strange reason. Does not smudge or flake on me. It makes my lashes look very black. I feel like I can add up to three coats without it looking clumpy.
Cons: The bristles kind of hurt if you're not careful! So it's hard sometimes to reach from the root of the lashes cus it hurts. Lastly, it doesn't hold a curl as well as I would like.
I saw that the most helpful review mentioned how the bristles seemed to take couple of her lashes each time she used it. I have not noticed that when I apply but I always use Dior Maximizer Lash Plumping serum when using mascara so maybe that's why?
I would give it a five star if the bristles weren't painful and if it can hold a curl better. I may repurchase but I am still looking for a perfect mascara.
No problems with the packaging, wand or formula, at least initially. But I have oily lids and this smudged and smeared (as most mascara as do on me). The search for my HG continues. This isn't it.
My HG mascara. Love this so much not only because it stays on forever and does not flake at all, but because it makes my lashes look a mile long!! Cannot say enough great things about this! On my 5th tube!!
Best mascara ever. My lashes are long, but not thick. This mascara lengthens more than it thickens but I still love it. Its super easy to put on, no need to de-clump, lashes stay curled all day, and it doesnt flake. Comes off easy too. What else can you ask for??? Oh, maybe a cheaper price.
best mascara ever! I'm a mascara Junkie and literally go through a mascara in 3 weeks. decided to purchase this and LOVE it length and volume and everything I still use drugstore mascaras because this one is too good to use as much as I do, so start off with they're real and apply another type. amazing deffinatly worth the money
