My HG mascara. One coat is great for everyday, two coats really make it look almost like I'm wearing false lashes. My only complaint is that the brush is a bit big. Wear is nice for me, no flaking and it lasts all day.

I got a sample of this free as a birthday gift from Sephora. It has a great brush, applied well, lengthened, didn't clump, I was happy with its performance, BUT I couldn't remove it with just water, the way I take off all of my favorite mascaras. I don't have enough time to deal with eye makeup remover, etc. Not impressed with Benefit. They also discontinued my favorite eye primer of all time, F.Y.Eye. I feel Benefit is going down the tubes.

This is my favorite mascara to date!! I really love Benefit mascaras!! I also love badgal lash. This is kind of expensive, but it gives my lashes length and definition without clumping or smudging. It lasts all day for me and I LOVE this stuff!

I got this as a gift from my cousin. I have a decent amount of lashes, but they're stick straight and some are on the shorter side. I've had this mascara for a month, and i love it! it lasts all day without flaking, but i've found that is smudges on the lower lashes, but i only do myupper lashes anyways. also, if you use the old index card trick, you can actually put as many as three coats on without clumps! i took a lippie off of packaging because the wand's revolutionary domed tip tends to hold too much product at the end to be much use in what they claim on the box. another con is that it doesn't hold a curl too well, but maybe because i'm multi-coating. I love this mascara because it really does volumize and lengthen, looking like a set of falsies but at the same time really natural, if that makes sense. it's not a pain to remove, either, like other mascaras i've used. it's a little pricey, but if you have a little money to splurge, i definitely recommend buying it, you won't regret it!

This made my lashes look great. I will not deny that- BUT- It's kind of a one and done mascara. One coat and that's all you get-- if you try to apply a second coat your lashes start to look like little horns because they get stuck together. Also, I don't like for my lashes to be stiff and after just one coat they harden up and aren't soft at all. I just wasn't impressed with this- I'm sure some people love it, but it just wasn't the right mascara for me.

Well, i like the brush very much, but the mascara is way to hard to remove and it dry too easily in my opinion.. It's a medium-good mascara. Will not buy it again..

The first tube worked fine. However into 3 wks w the second tube... Clumping, hard to completely remove. And The last 4 days I have noticed the center of my lashes have brake off.. Not sure if the formula changed but this mascara is the only thing I have used on my lashes.. Not good

Benefit's They're Real! is a wildly popular. Never have I ever wanted to try a mascara so badly, so I was overjoyed to get a mini tube as a gift with purchase at Ulta. Benefit says that this mascara will "lengthen, curl, volumize, lift, and separate. Our jet black, long wearing formula won't smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!" Benefit claims that their consumer panelists say "94% more visible lift and volume", "90% base to tip curl" and "100% say long wearing results". Benefit's They're Real! mascara retails for $23 for an 8.5g (.3oz) tube. Don't want to invest in a full size? This mascara is also available in a $10 mini tube, and in multiple Benefit value kits. It's also frequently offered as a gift with purchase. Benefit does not test on animals. This mascara was made in France. Benefit products can be purchased through the brand's website, at Benefit counters and free standing boutiques, Sephora, and Ulta. Like just about every Benefit product, They're Real! comes in pretty cute packaging. The mascara comes in a black cardboard box. The name of the product is printed on the front of the box, clinical claims and a "before and after" photo can be found on the side of the box. Directions and a full ingredient list are offered on the back of the box. The mascara's tube is grey and topped with a silver metal cap. The name of the mascara is printed vertically on the tube in black and orange lettering. What's supposed to make They're Real! so special is the brush. They're Real!'s brush is quite large, about an inch long. The rubber bristles are pretty average and uniform in length, except at the tip of the brush, which comes to a rounded poit. The bristles on the tip are significantly longer than the ones on the body of the brush; these longer bristles are meant to separate and catch the shortest lashes. These elongated bristles are loaded with product and can be difficult to clean off. Benefit has a suggested method for using this unique brush. You're meant to wiggle and sweep the brush from root to tip, as usual, but you're then meant to turn the brush vertically and use the rounded tip to separate and add lift to the lashes. So how does that work out for me? Not so well, sadly. I find Benefit's They're Real! very clumpy, heavy, and hard on the lashes. One coat of this mascara looks nice, but doesn't deliver the dramatic false lash look Benefit promises. Well, that's an easy fix right? Just apply another coat or two. It's not that simple with They're Real!, this mascara begins to clump immediately when I begin to apply the second coat. I've tried a few application methods, including the one suggested by Benefit, all with no luck. The formula is very heavy and quite stiff on the lashes, causing my lashes to lose any curl they had and stick almost straight out. They're Real! is quite lengthening, but the length is canceled out by the heavy formula. This mascara also leaves weird little balls of product at the tips of my lashes that eventually flake off if I don't manually remove them. So They're Real doesn't give me dramatic lashes, but does it live up to the long wearing claim? Oh my yes. Aside from the weird clumps on the tips of the lashes, They're Real stays in place all day. It's actually pretty difficult to remove even with my best makeup remover. I don't think this mascara is truly waterproof, but it certainly performs that way. Benefit's They're Real! is one of their bestselling, most buzzed about products. Its been recommended to be by friends and bloggers alike. I'm so disappointed that it didn't work out for me. Application can take some time and practicae. The formula doesn't layer well, more than two light coats and my lashes stick together. The length They're Real delivers is awesome, but they stiff, heavy formula uncurls my lashes, and what good is length without curl? If you're looking for a super long lasting but non-waterproof mascara, Benefit's They're Real! might be a good choice for you. I wouldn't repurchase this mascara, I'll stick to BadGal Lash when it comes to Benefit mascaras. I really wish They're Real! was as great as it is for almost every one else. If you're looking to try this mascara out, check your local Sephora or Ulta for the mini tube first.

I got this by accident when I ordered something else, and the vendor let me keep the mascara. Pros:- Really does make your lashes look mega long- Brush works well, no clumps- Gives your lashes some curl without using a curler- So far, the formula seems to be staying nice and liquidyCons:- The little tip of the brush has some little bristles as well (to get your corner lashes) but I find the mascara tends to stay stuck in these bristles so you get a big glob on your brush that you have to wipe off.- It gives you what I call "spider lashes". I don't know how else to describe them, I guess they remind me of spider legs? Long, and dark, but still kind of thin-looking. Some people like that, so that might be a "pro" in your books. I prefer my lashes to look a bit shorter (mine are naturally long anyway) and thicker.- Minor flaking (deal breaker for me)In conclusion: this is an ok mascara. I can see a lot of people liking it. I don't think it does anything any other decent lengthening mascara can't do, but this one is as good as any. I wouldn't buy it again because it's not my jam and I wont use the tube I have unless I'm really desperate.

This took me a bit of getting used to in order to perfect utilizing it's capabilities. The brush is wonderful, a thick, spiky little brush with a spiky ball on the end great for the outermost lashes. I apply it with one coat to separate, allow to dry (I'll do my blush in the mean time) then apply a hefty second coat. This works wonderfully for thin sparse lashes to add volume curl & depth. Is suggest purchasing in America for $21 instead of Canada for $29 plus 13% tax :/! Canadian ladies, any upcoming trips to just south of the American border PLEASE buy at least two!
