            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

            This mascara broke my eyelashes off! It goes on smooth, makes your eyelashes crunchy, clumpy and sticky. It doesn't wash off or come off easily-even with cleanser and a high end makeup remover. It's awful!

                  Love this stuff. It is extremely waterproof. You need to get the They're Real makeup remover or possibly use another oil-based makeup remover or you'll be scrubbing for days! But this really lengthens my baby lashes and lasts till you wash it off. Over 24hrs one time!

                    I have been using this product for a couple of months now, and other than the black "smudges" on my eyelids at the end of the day, I love it. What can I do to keep it from leaching onto my eyelids? (My daughter will tell me "mom you look like you have two black eyes!")

                      A:

                      We recommend using an eyelid primer like Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray to prevent smudging, especially if you have oily lids:
                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1840041

                      Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eyeshadows as usual.

                      Currently there is only one formula of They're Real Mascara, which is water-resistant rather than waterproof. This product can be easily removed using Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Remover, which features a gentle formula that removes both water-resistant and waterproof eye makeup:

                      A:

                      To ensure even, clump-free application, follow these steps:
                      Position the wand horizontally & wiggle from side to side, base to tip, to achieve maximum volume, length, and lift.
                      Hold the wand vertically and stroke upward to curl and separate lashes.
                      Layer generously as desired.
