BENEFIT They’re Real! Mascara Review and Rant :(

One of my favorite makeup item is the mascara. Especially for someone like me who has short and sparse lashes. Making them lush and full is always my number one priority.

I have reviewed several brands of mascaras already and you can check them out there.

Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara disappointed me 🙁 I had high expectations with how they promoted their mascara, volume, curl, length, no smudge, last all day. And all were false promises.

The rubber brush, though I love the design was just to stiff and painful it pokes the skin and my eyes if Im not careful enough


  • Volume – yes
  • Length – no
  • No Smudge – smudges
  • Last all day – fades within 3 hours and hello racoon eyes
  • Curl – It killed the curl that my eyelash curler gave, had to curl AGAIN after putting on the mascara. It takes so much effort just to get the desired effect.


I was using the K-Palette Concealer, too bad it creases 🙁

Will I recommend this product? Nope, too expensive, not a value for your money. As much as I love other benefit products like the posie tint, benetint, high beam (most of them are face products theyre excellent with those). Their mascaras kept to disappoint.

Will I buy this again? No. I would rather buy more tubes of Majolica Majorca’s mascaras or Imju Fiberwig, Fairydrops. Japanese cosmetics makes the best formulation of mascaras in my opinion.
