I'm not sure if the mini is the same as full size one but if so, it sucked big time.
I couldn't get an even distribution on my straight lashes and the brush hurts???
As for "fake lashes effect" it promised on the box, eh? Bad Gal gives you more thicker/longer lashes than this.

Well I love this mascara. I used a sample of it before I knew any of the hype, and I was blown away. The length it gives is unreal. This is definitely it's shining achievement. Perhaps if you have very long or very short lashes it wouldn't be as great? I have no idea. For me, it is the holy grail mascara. I've purchased it 4 times now and have never come across a clumpy bottle. As with any mascara, you should remove the excess on the tip and apply at the base of your lashes (wiggling back and forth) before rolling up. The angry one star reviews are kind of funny though. I mean, you certainly don't have to like it, but come on. It's mascara. Mascara shouldn't make you that angry.

This is hands down the worst mascara I have ever used. It made my lashes look horrendously clumpy and short, and it very soon smudged EVERYWHERE. Total mess. Apparently some people like it, but I am completely sure there are better options for anyone's 20. I don't usually feel anger towards makeup, but oh how I hate this product.

After so much hype about this mascara, I definitely had to try it, considering I haven't found one mascara that I would totally be addicted to. Well, I can't say I'm disappointed, it is a good a mascara - it separates well, doesn't clump (especially if you wipe off the excess mascara from the top of the brush), curls. As far as lengthening, it didn't do anything extraordinary for me, my lashes are naturally pretty long and have volume, so They're Real just highlighted that. And I can't say I'm not happy about it, I actually love they way it looks on me - almost natural, nice un-clumpy texture, no spidery lashes, it really does pick up every single small lash of yours, but after all the hype, I expected something amaaazing. It's a great mascara, just doesn't live up to all the ads about it. And I wouldn't recommend it to anyone whose natural lashes lack volume, because this won't give you any Little Pony-type length.
Also, some reviewers say it's hard to take off - not the case for me, took it off really easily with some random drugstore makeup remover.

This is a total splurge for me, but totally worth it. I have noticed towards the end of the tube, it gets a little clumpy. It really lengthens and plumps perfectly. I do wish they had different shades though.

I had a sample of it so I decided to try it out when my other mascara ran out because I still haven't found a new "Holy Grail" mascara after my previous was discontinued. It's okay. I already have naturally long eyelashes and this made my lashes look clumpy and gross, but after the product "dried out" a bit it wasn't AS bad.

I really like the brush but that is as far as it goes. The extra length and volume this mascara offered just looked gross on my eyelashes. It sort of smudged on me but it didn't straight up give me raccoon eyes. I guess this would be preferable with girls that have shorter eyelashes but I personally don't want clumps of mascara constantly hitting my eyelid and browbone.

I think the trick is in the application. I love it. Looks natural but lush. And not dull finish. I think the way to apply it is sparingly at first, with quick second coat, before first one dries. My lashes are thin. This mascara makes them look better in a believable way.

This is a way overhyped product. It is also pretty much an exact dupe of Maybelline Great Lash - I know a lot of people will want to argue this with me but seriously, I am willing to take on this Pepsi challenge. This is a pseudo wet formulation no different than Great lash, the only differences btw the two (other than ingredients) are that TR has a better brush (which fools people) and also of course, the price difference.

This is heavy, wet, and takes forever to dry (just like MGL does). I did get some length which I liked. On the other hand, I use Latesse so I am not really going for any more length than I already have (which is a lot). The first coat goes on fine and looks nice enough, the second coat births a hot mess - I got "Tammy Faye spider lashes", ugh. Also this stuff s@cks volume wise.

No one is EVER going to think you are wearing falsies when you use this product. Matter of fact they will just think you have crappy cheap mascara on. I almost spit out my wine due to the immense amount of laughter I had going when I saw the before and after pic on the side of this mascara pkg - YEAH RIGHT! Wosh, I am soooo glad I only bought the 10 buck trial size!

My HG mascara from the first try! I have long, straight eyelashes and They're Real can hold a curl all day whilst still giving volume. I find the formula builds nicely with two coats for a more dramatic look. I can see why it has been said to be difficult to remove but I have not had any problems when used with Gatineau Floracil. Well done, Benefit.
