I decided since I get my eyebrows waxed at Ulta I would try out their mascara and I have to say it's awesome! This mascara is going to replace my Lancôme.
I bought the combo pack of black and plum they recently offered. It was [$]. I LOVE benefit products. Since I had never tried their mascara, I decided to get this instead and give it a try based on all the raves and hype. The formula seemed dryer than many brands and I agree with other reviews this probably will dry out quickly since mine already seemed dry. Also, it coats the lashes very thinly and didn't really do much to thicken or lenghten them. After applying it, I could barely see my lashes. All it did was trun them from blonde to black, they were not thicker or fuller or longer. It also had a very chemical smell. Not that of bad mascara, just not pleasant. I returned it. I get better results with my $7-$10 "drugstore" brand so I was VERY disappointed that this expensive [$] brand delivered so much less than cheaper mascaras. I returned it.

I placed it on before leaving for work with the rest of my makeup essentials. I wear contacts. It just happened to be a day for meetings most of the day. I sneezed and then realized in horror that my mascara had all come off my lashes, ran down my face, with me resembling Alice Copper. All from a small sneeze. I will not recommend this to anyone wishing to keep from being embarrassed. It is not a mascara to use if you wear contacts and may get tears in your eyes.

This mascara is anything BUT volumizing. I was very disappointed with this beauty product & will be returning. The product is costly and the quality is very poor. The mascara has a very thin and sparse consistency. It barely coats the very large brush applicator. When applied it hardly coats your lashes. Even after repeatedly applying several coats. When the lashes were coated, they appeared thin and spidery by the hardened mascara. I have used other products that made my lashes long and voluminous. I would honestly recommend almost any other brand over this one. Not a must have in my beauty bag.

Purchased this on recommendation not the gal at Ulta. The Mascara is so dry I wonder if anything is in the bottle. Horrible horrible mascara
Foxlove from Carmichael, CA
Lousy mascara, difficult to apply, the brush is too big and you have to dip it several times to get mascara on it. Then, it does not cover well. I have long, thick lashes and after applying this mascara, you can hardly see them. Worse yet, after about an hour, I've got mascara all around my eyes. Just yucky, don't waste your money!

Absolutely love this mascara! I have tried other ones and nothing compares it. Goes on super easy, only need a few coats before you notice long and voluminous lashes.
Jaebee from Indiana
I love this mascara I am hooked! If u want to try it get yourself the sample size to start! I have actually been complimented on my mascara twice when wearing this oddly enough once fm the dental assistant and once from my sister! They wanted to know what I used thay lengthened my lashes yet looked natural.

I started using this mascara when I was 16 (I'm now 32) and it was seriously the best mascara ever. The brush was nice and thick and it made my eyelashes thick and long. HOWEVER, the last two bottles I've bought have been totally dry. I'm wondering if Benefit changed their formula?

LOVE! My only complaint is it is difficult to get off!

This mascara was terrible! Halfway through my day I had raccoon eyes! I have been wearing Benefit They're Real for years and thought I would give this one a try, but was very disappointed. I only used it for a couple weeks before giving up. I'm back to They're Real. I shouldn't have cheated.
Dani from Cincinnati
I think the actual mascara is too thick for the brush they have in the bottle. It seems like I never had enough mascara on the brush to actually coat the eyelashes. I tried everything from swirling the brush around in the bottle to holding it under warm water. Nothing really worked. I usually really love benefit cosmetics but this mascara was an epic fail for me

Easy to apply. Brush separates lashes well. Dries quickly making it hard to apply a second coat.

Love it & will buy it again.

I wasn't impressed by this mascara at all. I have pretty long lashes and almost every mascara I've tried has helped show that length but this one almost makes them look shorter. It also doesn't volumize whatsoever, it does a really good job at separating the lashes and making them not clumpy but I personally go for more dramatic lashes when I actually take the time to do my makeup. This mascara is good for more of a natural lash look and very good for lower lashes might I say especially because the brush allows you to get in the inner corner. I never have issues w smudging like other people seem to, Ive been using this on my lower lashes. But that being said the mascara doesn't do what it was intended for. If you want a natural, light mascara this is a good one. If you want a more volumizing or lengthening mascara I suggest finding something else.

Doesn't add much volume, it is goopy and causes clumpiness.
Jill from Texas
Smudged within 30 minutes. Made my eyes burn. Great application and brush, just not for me.
Unhappy Customer from Omaha, NE
This product is really bad. The only thing good it does is it separates the lashes and isn't clumpy. But other than that it is awarding. I will curl my lashes and after I put it on, they go right back down. Also the smudging is really really bad. I look like a raccoon after putting this on for just three hours. I will never be purchasing this product again.

Got this during the mascara sale & I am glad I finally got to try it. I do like it but I'm still a Maybelline fan when it comes to mascaras.
Kathy from Foxboro, MA
I used to love this mascara, but the formula has changed. It's goopy, clumpy and takes forever to dry. I will not buy again. I wish I could return, but I threw the box away.

Doesn't smudge and lasts all day. Would highly recommend!

Okay, so I usually never buy like a "brand mascara" and I've used benefit products since I was in high school so I finally decided hey I'll buy an "expensive" mascara. I like my lashes full without me curling them. This mascara literally worked. It gave my lashes volume it didn't clump I LOVE that it literally got every piece of eyelash individually but I was so in love with how lashes came out that didn't realize how much this mascara smears. I had my wisdom teeth taken out today and cried cause of how much pain I was in let me tell you this mascara is not water proof and literally all of it came off and now I look like emo squid ward when he looked beautiful.

I have only used this mascara 4 times. So I really don't know how it's going to be.
Fupa from Rancho Cucamonga
I didn't like how it smeared a lot without touching my eyes.
