I have the sample size of this I got for the birthday present from Sephora. At first I absolutely despised this but realized I wasn't using this the proper way it needed to be used. You really have to layer and swipe from roots to tips to get the full affect. Now, I can't think about life without it! It is a definite rival to my favorite loreal voluminous and have been wearing this non stop for weeks. The only downside is it is tough to remove with regular eye makeup remover and must used an oil based remover to fully clean lashes but will for sure repurchase in larger size.
I have never in my life not liked a mascara. I hated this one! I have semi-long, non-voluminous, blond-ish lashes and am in dire need of a good mascara. This was not it. My lashes clumped together horribly, became rock hard and crispy feeling. I heard that the formula is too wet and it gets better after a few weeks. I waited a few weeks and...no. Ladies, this stuff is awful. I tried to give it to my 12 year old daughter, she tried it and she wouldn't even take it. Maybe it does work for other women, but omg, this was the worst mascara I have ever tried in my 27 years! Dior show, Clinique High Impact, or LashBlast are all better IMHO
I swear, two days ago, someone said: that mascara does wonders for your lashes! Yes, this pricey mascara looks great on, but there are 2 disadvantages: 1) the composition is quite watery (holy moley: left it near warm, indirect sunlight, and boy did it get runny!!!) 2) GUANO! Yeah, this stuff is sticky & soooo hard to get off. Is it waterproof? Girl, this stuff is practically soap-proof. ::scrub scrub:: yeah, great lasting power with no flaking. It really is a perfect mascara. Quite different/better than Bad Gal black. Buy it! Just try it! continued >>
I didn't want to like this mascara because $23 for something I'll use in a few months is so expensive, especially when there are some good DS mascaras out there. I got a sample of this w/ the Fast Train to Fabulous kit I got for xmas, and oh my gosh I LOVE THIS. My lashes look amazing, and I got so many compliments wearing this. They look so full, long, separated, etc. When my sample runs out it will be hard for me to not want to buy the full size
I loved this product. Makes your lashes look long and full but natural as well. Would definitely purchase again.
Nah....this is totally overrated IMO. I had superhigh expectations for this, as I am a masaraholic, and have tried most of them. I was sceptical to the wand, but the wand is actually ok. It separates great, and the tiny bristles at the end is good to have.
BUT the masacara is too wet - it`s a messy kind of masacara, and if you spill somewhere (like I always do), it`s not easy to get off.
Also the lashes clinged togehter after 2 coats, which I hate! I love the long, feathery, vomuized lashes...this gave me lenght, that`s about it. Not happy with it and will be giving it away (and swapping another....bought a duo, smart me...).
I actually think the $5 mascara Jordana Best Lash masacara works wonders compared to this.... The hunt continues....
This mascara made my lashes look good. I didn't have any problems with the texture, and the brush was nice. That said, it wasn't any improvement over my regular mascara (Maybelline Colossal), so it was a fail for me, considering it's more that tree times the price. It also is not water proof, and did run slightly for me. It also seemed to burn my eyes a bit, but I'm not considering that in my ratings because I have very sensitive eyes and that probably won't affect most of you.
I received a sample size of this product. Typically, I stick to the drugstore brands, but I am always eager to try samples of more pricier brands. I have to say that after using this for a few days, I love it! This is the only mascara that keeps my lashes looking natural - only better! I have not experienced clumps, smearing, or any other typical complaints of mascara. And it lasts all work day. Best part is that two swipes on my upper lashes, one on my bottom lashes and I'm done! I've only been using it a few days, so I can't speak for long-term usage, but so far I am loving it. I may just have to buy the full size product!
Why so much hate for this product? I'm really picky with my mascara and have been looking forever for a really nice mascara, and this is one of the super good ones. I've tried Dior, MAC, Armani, the famous Maybelline pink and green mascara, Clinique, Lancome, etc., and keep coming back to this. I was so skeptical because of so many bad reviews on here, but I got a free sample and I LOVED it.
It really lengthens and easily separates my lashes, making them look full and long. I definitely get compliments on it and it makes my eyes pop way more than the average mascara. Right now I have Lancome's Hypnose Star and MAC's Opulash mascara in my drawer, and this blows those out of the water.
I think this is an amazing product for a pretty decent price!
I'm already on my second tube of it and have a third smaller sized one waiting to be used, I love it so much. It works for me when I had just opened it until it was almost dried up (the wand is pretty handy). I have a couple other mascaras that I've been using, but somehow my lashes never look right when I don't use They're Real. I love pairing it with L'oreal's Extra Volume Collagene mascara, it makes my lashes look long and full. But still, They're Real can def be used by itself, even though it doesn't give amazing volume, but makes my lashes look really long. The tip of the wand is amazing, it reaches all the tiniest lashes and completes the look. The price though, is something to consider. You can get amazing mascaras in the drugstore for a fraction of the price and still get amazing results. But if you have the couple extra bucks to spend on mascara, go for it.
