        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

        I received this a gift and was so excited about it. Until I used it and it was good at first but I started to notice more and more how runny it is when applied on your lashes. Not the best mascara for the price.

          I was expecting a lot more than this product offers. Even the cheapest mascara at the local drug store offers better volume and length than this does. What a waste of money. I'm going to take it back if I can.

            I love this product because it is a time saver. You don't need a lot of coats to get the superb results you get for the fabulous looking eyelashes we women like to have. There for it comes off easily when you wash it off. Please DO NOT change the ingredients to this product or DISCONTINUE it. That always seems to happen to me when I find a product I really like. Thank you for making such a fabulous product.

                They're Real Mascara does help to curl lashes. Hold the wand vertically & stroke upward to curl & separate.

                From Benefit Cosmetics:

                "We do not test our products on animals nor do we permit others to do so except where it is required by law.

                "We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing and we are playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the “Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing” in the United States and the Opal Program in France. Additionally, we are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our foremost priority.

                "We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing."

            • Q:

              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.
