This mascara is actually worth the hype. I have normal lashes, I have length and some volume. Sorry this wouldn't be helpful if you have short lashes. :( I do the 'wiggle, blink' technique whenever I apply any mascara and this one just does the charm, it gives me more length and volume. So i think this would do some work for short lashes? The price ($23!) could be friendlier, but what can you do. I still prefer drugstore mascaras thou :) eh only con is there is absolutely no waterproof formula, I prefer waterproof just in case I burst into tears one day.
Overall this would be great if you don't care for waterproof or even the price. Worth a try!
Not a fan. The results are decent (your lashes become quite dark and thick) however, I found it a little clumpy and very difficult to remove. I felt like it also made my lashes more brittle.
The wand is also quite scratchy.
-I liked the brush style
-Too pricey for the minimal results
-Some people may not like the the brush style
-Lots of fallout
-Difficult to wash off
I made my purchase at Ulta, this mascara costs $20. When I first used this mascara I liked it very much, I was even thinking about buying some back ups. Some mascaras are not a true black, but this was very dark. One thing I liked was that the brush grabbed all of my lashes easily, even the outer lashes that can be difficult to get. My lashes naturally have more length than volume, and this mascara added a nice amount of volume. The first time I used it I did notice fallout within maybe 3-4 hours, which I thought was due to the fact that I was outside in the heat a lot that day. This mascara is clumpy, so you have to brush your lashes out after every use, which is a pain. At the end of the day when you go to take this off it won't budge, it takes a decent amount of time to completely remove this mascara all the way. There are too many cons for the price, I will not be repurchasing this.
I heard so many people raving about this mascara so I decided to give it a try. It definitely does not work for me! I have very thin lashes and I find that this mascara clumps and results in to me having a very spidery lash look. Not attractive!
it doesn't last long enough and its not waterproof at all.Separate my eyelashes pretty well and has false lash effect but only last for a few hours and then comes off Expensive too!!!
I'm glad to hear it wasn't my wimpy lashes that couldn't take BeneFit's They're Real Mascara. I loved the full and long look this gave me, but I also noticed lashes coming off on the bristles, and I was shocked when I changed my eyelash curler pad! It does take a little too much effort to remove, no matter the makeup remover or coconut oil (that is what I use) - It also dried out pretty quickly, which is a bummer since it was so expensive. I'll continue my search for the perfect mascara for my short lashes. Only a couple have I liked enough to mention: Lancome Defencils, and Loreal Voluminous Million lashes.
I was dying to try this product so I purchased a full size tube. I want my lashes to look like falsies. Dramatic, black, and lengthening was the look I wanted but sadly Benefit They're Real is not going to do it for me. It's not a bad mascara, but it just isn't the one for me. The wand is plastic with little prongs on it and I prefer the giant traditional wands like Dior Black Out. The mascara blackened my lashes but didn't do much for volume and very little for length. I would not repurchase this because there are many others that do the job better and are cheaper.
I got a small sample of this from Sephora for my birthday with Watts Up! Both were just okay.
The mascara got really clumpy very easily on me. I had no idea to combat this. I tried wiping off the wand inside the tube and on the outer rim. Nothing. I tried an eyelash comb. I even tried using E.L.F mascara shield and applying against that. Still clumpy as can be. I see some length from this but that's it.
Kind of disappointing from a mascara everyone seems to love.
I love this mascara! I got a small sample from sephora for my birthday and I loved it, just one coat would make my lashes look long and separated. I was flinching at the price when I finally decided to get the full size, but now I don't regret it at all. On New Years I did 3 coats and I got asked if I was wearing fake lashes by a couple people. It's a great mascara, $23 is a bit much for it but I can guarantee that it is beyond worth it.
Who isn't obsessed with this product!?!? Its such a great mascara for volumizing and lengthening and looks so natural!! I love wearing it to school or adding a couple more coats for going out. Also it doesn't transfer to your waterline at all. However by the end of the day it tends to flake off. Regardless this is one of my favorite mascaras ever and it definitely worth the price!
