          I use this every day and love, love, love it! It is the best I have ever owned. The spiky tip is great for getting the corners and my lower lashes. It is waterproof and dries quickly. One good coat and my lashes are fab! I usually don't rate makeup and haven't been impressed since Bare Minerals.

            I use They're Real Mascara everyday. It is everything Benefit advertises. It is long lasting, volumizing, and lifts and separates. It creates such long natural-looking lashes. It does not clump, flake or smear. It's the only mascara I will use.

                The only thing that I would recommend is that they should have a special sale buy one and get one free. It is very expensive when you buy one for home and one for your travel kit. Thank you, Loretta Rochester Hills, Mi

                  • 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.

                      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.

                    What look is this mascara going to give my lashes as opposed to Bad Gal? In other words, if I want longer, separated lashes which one should I choose?

                      A:

                      The primary benefit of They're Real is lash-lengthening and separating for extremely long lashes, while the primary benefit of BADgal is volumizing for thick, full lashes. You can even layer one over the other for dramatic long AND full lashes!
