Benefit They’re real! Beyond Mascara Review

If I was only allowed to bring one makeup item on a deserted island, I’d pick mascara. I can’t live without a good Mascara because it defines and enhances the shape of my eyes and makes them look bigger.

Beyond reality is Benefit’s mascara “They’re Real!” The mascara boasts 94% saw dramatic length and volume, 90% saw base to tip curl, 94% saw visible lift, and 100% saw long-wearing results in a consumer survey. Let’s take a look and see if it’s “Real!”.

The box kinda reminds me of Halloween (when people dress up and look crazy) because of the colors but hey we need some dramatic and I think they’re Real! might hold its end of the bargain.

So by just looking at the back of the box Benefit lets us know that the mascara has a specially designed brush that does tricks when following the instruction. Notice the picture of the ingenuity design.

Inside the box is the MASCARA!!! and a they’re Real! booklet. I like how the mascara has a design that is coordinating between black, orange, and chrome color. And look at it, the tube is big!

Nothing too out of the ordinary while getting an up close shot of twisting and opening our mascara.

Here is the picture of the mascara wand lying out. Pretty spiky?

An up close shot reveals the wand. The rubbery bristles seem to be able to coat every single lash.

Now let’s go straight to the test! Here are my bare lashes which are a bit thin and lack of volume.

This is how my lashes look with just one coat. The same lashes look still like my real lashes but with a lot more definition and coverage. They’re so much darker and there’s no clump at all. It’s like having false lashes but without the weird feeling. I had it on for the whole day, there was no smudge and it stayed like this until I took it off. The removing process was easy too. I just covered my eyes with a cotton pad saturated with eye makeup remover. A minute or two later, every single bit of it was transferred to the cotton pad.

After testing it out, I do believe they’re real. I love how it thickens and darkens my natural lashes without putting on a lot of weight. The spiky brush does a great job in piling on product and separating my lashes. The formula is smooth and glossy without drying, flaking or clumping. It seems like I’m wearing false lashes but they are my real lashes and they look so natural.

    Thanks for the review. I like how it thickens and darkens without clumping, haven’t found a non-clumping mascara yet.
