I have thin and short lashes, I didn't expected this to give me the fabulous fake effect I wanted but since my mom had it in her makeup bag, I tried it. Wow ! It really did something for me. There were some glitters on it, but not that much. I just love how it added length and volume. I'm so happy with this, one of my favorites so far but I still prefere Essence's one, called multi actions - fake lashes (in a green/black packaging, not really pretty by the way) which is dirt cheap but AMAZING.

Erm... I don't really know what to think about this mascara. Since I have very thin and short lashes, I was looking into a mascara whose purpose is to not give a natural effect. I wanted THE fake lashes effect. I decided one day to bought it at Sephora, and I thought it was like an "investisment" since it's soooo expensive. Results : ... well. It does something, but it doesn't do the fake effect. My lashes had more lenght, but not really volume. But mostly : it didn't seem like my lashes were "amazing" as I expected. Maybe it's me, but I'm disappointed by this mascara and I even prefere Benefit's one (They're real!). Not sure If I'm going to buy it again to definitly give it another try. Maybe if I have money to waste.
Good choice of colors, it dries fast and it stays for a very long time. Seriously. Cons : - I rubbed it once on my piano keyboard (don't ask why, it's going to be kinda hard to explain even if it's not silly I swear !), and I was like chocked when I saw that my nails "printed" the color on the keyboard. Not only a keyboard, but it also did the same effect when I "rubbed" a paper... anyway. - I have a yellow color, and when applied it looks like if I had applied some kind of... paint. Someone noticed it, was kind of embarassing..

Actually I don't have the "definition" one, but just the casual waterproof eyeliner from the brand. It is real waterproof, it stays for a long time, doesn't smudge at all ! Application is not that easy, but with training you won't have probems ;) The color doesn't fade, it is a deep black, exaclty what I want. The "wand" is really thin though, you get quite a thin line but it's not really easy to apply.
I bought the shade "Pink Martini" and I absolutely love it ! Packaging : Very cute, more for teenagers/young people since it's not "sophisticated" neither chic. The only problem with it is that it doesn't have a sharp shape, it's "flat" so it's not really easy to apply, but well it's not a huge challenge (at least for me, maybe for very thin lips). Color : A really pretty pink, not too bright though. It has not a lot of shimmer, which I like. Quality : It DOES moisturizes ! I don't lie ! I have very dry lips, and it helps a lot ! After a point it starts to dry again, but just reapply the lip balm and it's right. For the stain power, I actually don't know how long does it stain until it fades. I only wore it like 3/4 hours, but at the end of those hours the color was still nice and pink. I'm so happy with this product that I'm going to buy the others colors !
I love this mascara. I have very thin and small eye lashes, so I was looking for a "fake eyelashes" effect, and THIS mascara did very well ! Actually, I applied before another mascara (a very cheap one) whose purpose was to give me a length (it gave a bit, not amazing lenght but still) and then I applied "They're Real"! I know that for my eyelashes it would be really hard to get the fake eyelashes effect, but it gave a pretty good look. The brush is fine and the mascara lasts me for some months (3 or 4). I applied it every single day. I would recommend it and buy it once again ! It's also not too expensive compared to many other mascaras from other high end brands.
