I received a sample size version of this to try out, and I'm glad I didn't spend money on this. I like the brush and consistency of the formula, but it pulls my pre-curled lashes down (I hate droopy lashes!) and made them feel "rubbery" to the touch. Not a fan.
i have the sephora birthday sample size of this mascara and have been using it the last 3 months. when i first opened the tube, i was not impressed by the formula as it did nothing special for my lashes. now, as the tube is drying out, the formula has improved to where it holds my curl, darkens my lashes, adds a bit of length, and appears to give my lashes a fuller look.... upon fresh application. HOWEVER, after a few hours.. my lashes don't look quite as good anymore.. my lashes uncurl themselves pretty significantly and unevenly .. appearing quite a bit unruly.. very unlike the look i get when it's freshly applied. if my lashes stayed the way the look when i first apply, i would actually give this mascara a thumbs up. however, since i wear my mascara for more than an hour a day, i'm none too pleased with the overall result. will not be purchasing the full size.
I got a free sample of this as I didn't want to pay so much for a mascara that I might not like. Now I'm running out, I'm in panic mode wishing I'd bought some more at the duty free shop in the airport! I already have long eyelashes but this product works better than almost any other that I've tried. For the best effect, I comb through my lashes and use an eyelash curler then apply 1-2 coats, being careful not to make it clump. The only thing I would suggest with this is that Benefit bring out a waterproof formula :)!
They're Real has a pigmented "blackest black" formula. The mascara wears well during the day and doesn't transfer on my hooded lids. Despite all of the positive, I just can't like this mascara. The formulation is so thick!
I have long lashes that tend to naturally stick together. They're Real makes spider lashes worst. The spikes at the end of the applicator don't really help with separating due the large mass of thick mascara that gets stuck all over it.
I think this might be fabulous for someone short lashes but my mine stick together too much to get the thickening affect I was hoping for.
i got this as part of the sephora birthday gift. it was simple to apply, and i didn't notice any problems with clumping. i thought my lashes looked nice, but my eyelashes are already pretty long so it doesnt take much to make them look good. however, after a while it smudged under one of my eyes (i only put mascara on the top lashes) and it was also really hard to get off even with eye makeup remover. i used it 2 or 3 times with the same results each time, and discontinued use because i have other mascaras that i like better. i actually preferred my $5 maybelline greatlash lots of lashes mascara to this one because it didnt smudge on me and it comes off with soap and water. i wouldn't buy this again because i can get a better mascara at the drugstore for a lot cheaper. if i am going to pay 20+ for a mascara it needs to look great, wear great, and be easy to remove with makeup remover.
I bought this mascara about a month ago as so many people where raving about it and said it was amazing, i think it is a really good mascara it does everything it is supposed to do, it lengthens and adds volume while not making your eyelashes look clumpy and it is a perfect black so looks intense. I find that the wand is very easy to work with on your top eyelashes but is a tad to large for your bottom eyelashes. It does stay on and i find that it doesn't smudge but you can still easily remove it. It does make my eyelashes good better than most mascaras but i feel that it is quite expensive for something that does the same job as some cheaper products like the Maybelline falsies.
I would buy it again as i do really love the way it looks
I've received a sample size of this mascara, and I have to say I won't consider buying the full size. While it does lengthens my lashes, I found that it clumps easily and didn't last for a long time (I'm not referring to the amount of the products, because I had a sample), had to throw it out before the '3 months'. I'd probably give it another chance, if it was cheaper tho.
Recommended by a Sephora sales girl, wanted to get a Christmas present for my mom (She has NO lashes to speak of) I purchased it and my mom LOVES it. It definitely makes her little lashes visible and gives them length. She raved so much that I bought my own travel size bottle and I use it all the time. Although my lashes don't need that much help, they do a great job of darkening my lashes and adding length. It never smudges or runs. It does have a tendency to clump your lashes, so it really is about application with this mascara. Take your time running it through the lashes, give it the wiggle etc when you're applying, I promise its worth it!They pay off is great! Have repurchased at least 5 times, and I recommend it to all my friends!
Oh Benefit,, you rocked my world with this mascara! This truly makes every single lash three times it's size and the color is amazingly deep, dark & sexy. Love Love LOVE this!
The first time I applied this mascara, I was soooo satisfied with how it looked. Asian lashes finally could be seen by the world! But then it smudged around my eyes at the end of the day T.T
So how to make it work is just to powder the areas the lashes touch and that does the trick! Still have to do checks throughout the day though. It can get quite clumpy if the brush is loaded with product. Like the metallic packaging. Glad I got it in a kit instead of the full size. Overall, I like the length it gives, but I find it troublesome to de-clump and maintain panda free eyes.
