        Within hours of me putting this mascara on it immediately started smudging under my eyes. Was not happy looking like a raccoon all throughout a full day or work!

            This product really is great and made my eyelashes look awesome and long. However, soon after using this, my eyes bed raw, red and felt dry. They felt the best when I came home and took off my makeup. After switching to a different mascara I no longer have the OMG my eyes are so dry, scratchy and irritating feeling.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

            This is the best mascara I've ever tried! I was skeptical and a bit apprehensive due to the price, but I'm glad I took the risk and bought it! It makes my blonde lashes pop and adds length, curl, and volume. Highly recommended!!!

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

            I love this mascara. I've been through three and will be buying another soon. It makes your lashes look soooo amazing. The only bad part is if you have oily lids and long lashes some mascara will transfer to under your brow bone after a long day. Waterproof mascara solves that problem though :)

                A:

                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.

            • Q:

              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!
