        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

        I would--and have--recommended this to friends. I've been using waterproof mascaras for a while now and hate how difficult they are to remove. I like that They're Real acts pretty water resistant while being easy to remove. It doesn't flake, and is only sticky while it dries. It adds volume but doesn't clump. It's worth leveling up from cheaper brands.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara:

          After reading reviews I went out to buy it and I really like it. I love the brush and how it doesn't get clumpy. It's stayed on very well- no flakes. Doesn't make my eye lashes as long as everyone else is saying but I do like it.

              I was excited to use this product. I was wanting something that would make my lashes look long and amazing. For me, it didn't do that so much. I do like the way it applies without giving me any clumps. Maybe I'm not applying it correctly but will def keep trying.

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

                      A:

                      We recommend using an eyelid primer like Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray to prevent smudging, especially if you have oily lids:

                      Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eyeshadows as usual.
