    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

    I asked for: waterproof, but easily removed, non-flaking and long lasting and easy to apply. This product is all of that and even more. The brush is incredible--it finds lashes I don't even know existed.

          This product is amazing. I have very blonde eyelashes and this mascara does wonders for my eyes. It curls them and is not clumpy at all. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

              I am a heavy mascara user, I go through it rather quickly, so the price of this mascara was a no-no for my budget. I also have fine eyelashes so I have been using a volume and collagen boosting mascara for years at a third of this mascara's price. It worked very well for me and it was affordable. However, I received a sample of this mascara with an Ulta purchase. When I looked at the mascara brush I immediately thought, no way is that kind of brush going to give me the look of false eyelashes. Wrong! Not only did it give me the full, beautiful look of false eyelashes, but the shape of the brush, especially the tip, makes it so easy to coat every single eye lash, including the lower lash without causing clumping. My other mascara tended to clump very easily and some of the lashes would stick together like one giant uni-lash. (Not cool!) It does not get all over my eye area like my other mascara either. And.... a little goes a long way. I only need one coat on my entire lower and upper lashes, and a a second smaller coat on the outer upper and lower lashes. My other mascara was at least a 3 coat job. It is extremely long wearing. In fact, if there is one downside to this product, it is that it is sometimes difficult to remove. But I would rather deal with that then having to reapply my mascara several times a day. I will always have this mascara with me from here on out!

                      I have no idea why this mascara is so popular. It is so clumpy and makes lashes look like spider legs! It is so bad that I can tell in pictures when people are wearing it. It is not worth the hype at all.

                        I've tried a lot of mascaras but this one makes my lashes thick and long.
                        People really ask me if they are real or fake. You will love it.

                          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?

                            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!

                            Try Benefit Cosmetics Remove It Makeup Remover (Item #: 2231167), which effectively removes eye makeup, including long-wearing & waterproof formulas, with an oil-free, no-rinse formula. If you prefer pads, try Almay Oil-Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads (Item #: 2261100), which also features an oil-free formula.
