Cue my introduction to Benefit Cosmetics’ They’re Real! Mascara. I first discovered the product in a Boots apothecary in London, where signs read it’s ranked the UK’s #1 mascara. According to the packaging, 94% of users saw dramatic length and volume and 94% also saw visible lift.
I’ve been using the product for two weeks and can undoubtedly agree with the promises on the packaging. The mascara lengthens, lifts and adds mega curl to lashes – most than any other I’ve tried before. Two coats is already enough to achieve the jet-black voluminous lash look.
The only downside to the product is that it takes more than the average amount of eye makeup remover to get it off. Typically one swipe of remover can do the trick, but They’re Real takes an extra swipe – in my opinion, a small price to pay for perfect lashes all day long.
