I got a sample of this along with Benefit's Watt's Up highlighter (which I'll be reviewing next) for my birthday from Sephora. And I absolutely adore it.
Prior to discovering this mascara, I was using the Buxom mascara from Bare Escentuals, and while I loved it, I found it didn't wear well over the course of the day and was somewhat hard to build. I often had to layer it with other mascaras to get the full, fluttery lash effect that I so crave.
But now, I'm definitely going to make the switch to They're Real!
One coat gives me wonderfully black, long lashes with loads of definition. Slap on one more coat, and I've got feather-like, voluminous lashes that look so fanned out and sexy that I can hardly even stand it. So pretty!
I don't have any issues with flaking, and it seems to be quite water resistant, even though it makes no claims to be. That's a nice surprise.
The wand is amazing. I enjoy the plastic-like wands over bristle because I feel they grab and separate my lashes better. The shape of the wand is wonderful too; I'm able to really get at every lash, including those on my lower lash line.
Overall, I really enjoy this mascara, and will be purchasing once I run out of the sample (which I'm sure will be soon enough). I know it'll be pricey, but mascara lasts me quite a long time, so I don't worry too much about that, within reason.
I got a sample of this from my Sephora birthday gift. It made my eyelashes look really nice, but the formula is so thick it started to make them feel heavy. Also, it took forever to take off. Normal makeup remover wipes wouldn't cut it, I literally could not get it off no matter what I tried. This works really well but the only reason I wouldn't purchase is because $23 is just way too much for me for a mascara.
Yuck. I have long, fairly full lashes naturally, but this makes them look like scrawny, spikey sticks. Really difficult to get off too. I'll stick with my Maybelline Full and Soft. I'm glad I didn't pay for this - I got in for my Sephora birthday gift.
I hated this product.
I expected something more but it sticks my eyelash together and they are horrible. Ive seen drugstore mascara doing better than this one !
I heard such good reviews about this on youtube, and i have no idea why..... Its an okay mascara but for its price i expected something AMAZING! It takes forever to apply and get your lash;s just right! its to "natural" looking and by the end of the day it looks like im not wearing any mascara at all!
spider like lash's
This is one of the best mascaras I've tried. I got a mini version with my Benefit Do the Bright Thing Kit. I have long lashes and this enhances them even more. The brush separates my lashes while coating them with the mascara. It is very black and makes my lashes look even longer. I have been using this for about a month now and haven't had any problems with clumping. It also lasts for hours which is nice. I also like the fact that it isn't super heavy. I barely feel like I'm wearing mascara. I definitely plan on buying the full size.
I purchased the small "sample" version for $12.00 just to try it out. So far I really love it. It goes on really nice and even has bristles on the very tip of the wand for your lower lashes. The funny thing is my boyfriend even asked me if I was wearing fake eyelashes the first time I wore it.
You need a really good makeup remover to get this mascara off (I find coconut or olive oil works best). It has a glue like affect if you do not get all of it off. I also found that after a few hours of wearing the mascara I noticed dark flake like particles on the top of my cheeks. I have heard of this in previous reviews as well.
Over all it is a pretty good product. I would re-purchase.
I usually get very disappointed with mascaras because they're always claiming big things then turn out to be mediocre. They're Real by BeneFit is really good. It actually does make my lashes look longer and thicker. I like this mascara and probably will get some more after I run out of my sample.
I am a complete mascara junkie and absolutely love this! It made my lashes look a lot longer although if you want them long and thick i advise using multiple coats to make them stand out. I tend to layer up using different makes and types so i can get them long, thick (without clumps) and curly.
It is a little on the expensive side and if you use it like me it doesn't last that long but i would say its worth it if you want statement lashes.
The brush is great but it can be a little spikey depending on how you apply it. I have yet to find anything which can really compare to this, If any of you know of anything better please let me know :)
What can I say about this that hasn't been said already?
I picked the mini version of this up at Sephora, KL at the checkout display (always get sucked into buying more stuff when I'm there), and now I regret not picking up the full sized version!
This product is definitely hyped up, and for good reason. I put one coat on and was so blown away! In my excitement, I ran to my sister and proclaimed "Look at my lashes! THEY'RE REAL!" and waving the tube of mascara at her. Lame, I know :)
It's very black and pigmented! I hope they come out with a brown version for everyday wear. Lashes are very full and soft after 2 coats compared to cheaper drugstore brands that turn your lashes in actual artificial falsies. No smudging, but it does take a little longer to remove with a soaked cotton pad.
I've only been using this for a week, so I can't really say how long it will last before drying out!
Go out and try it if you haven't!
