    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

    Due to a medical issue a few years back, I lost most of my eyelashes and eyebrows. It's all grown back, but most of my eyelashes are so light that the hairs are almost clear! Also, my lashes barely have a curve to them anymore. They're Real is heaven sent! I've been using this mascara for over a year and am still loving it. I've had no problems with flakes or smudging. I can put a light coat on for day or go dramatic with it for special occasions.

        This makes my already long lashes stand out! It does have quite a dramatic effect and I do not wear too much makeup regularly, so I do not wear it everyday.

                I have oily skin, with all other mascaras I look like I have two black eyes by the end of the day. This one stays put. No mid day refresher necessary. I use mascara mainly to cover gray lashes. My lashes are already long. However because of the definition it brings to each lash it makes my eyes look younger. Everything helps when you're 62. Thanks

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

                  I am forever on a quest for mascara that will provide volume and length without several coats and no clumping. This mascara does not fit the bill for me, however I love it as a "last coat" mascara- not a mascara to wear alone.

                  This mascara is probably the best lengthening mascara I've tried- including being better than mascaras that come with the lengthening primer. The con for me is that in order to get the volume I want I have to do several coats- which results in clumping and smearing during application.

                  This mascara is also difficult to remove- which is good and bad. For me, it's as good as waterproof mascara in the sense where it stays on. The con- you HAVE to remove it with actual eye makeup remover that takes off waterproof mascara. I made the mistake of pulling at it and I pulled out some of my lashes. This is MY fault for removing it the wrong way.

                  In a nutshell- I use a volumizing and nourishing mascara first and then do a quick swipe towards the end of my lashes last and the result is absolutely gorgeous, almost false looking on me.

                    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!

                      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.
