Most Helpful Positive Review Unbelievable
I'd heard people raving about They're Real! I mean, who hasn't. But I didn't believe it. There was no way a mascara could create such incredible results. So when I recently bought a Beauty Score from the Benefit Kiosk in the Las Vegas airport, I was elated to see the They're Real! tube in the bottom of the box. I'm sold. Game over. I don't see myself every buying another mascara. They're Real! makes my lashes long and thick and with no flakes! Just amazing. It also helps that the wand is like perfection. The end is great for getting those thin lashes and the design certainly helps separate the lashes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Long Lashes but Lots of Flecks
If I was just basing my review on the lengthening ability of this mascara, it would get a 10+++ but other factors bring the grade down. First, the brush. While it does coat & separate lashes if used as directed, gobs & gobs of mascara come out on the end of the brush & get deposited on the lashes. I have tried wipeing it off on the end of the tube but then it accumulates & gets gummy. I tried wipeing it off on a towel/tissue but then I saw how much of the product was wasted. Forget using the end of the brush to reach small inner lasher or lower lashes because there is just too much mascara. The second problem is that this mascara flakes like crazy!! And after 10 or 15 min., not just by the end of the day. I've been using a coat of clear mascara over this mascara to help alliviate the problem of "dalmation eyes" - black spots all around my eyes.
This product does lengthen lashes like no other lengthening mascara I have ever tried but, in my opinion, the minuses outweigh the one plus.

Would I say it's my fave? No. It does give you length. It makes your lashes long. However it get clumpy after a month.
Wanted to love it
Going back from Yonkers ny
it definitely adds length to my lashes , i only use on top lashes and my big problem is that It smudges/runs
By 4pm i look like a raccoon or like i was crying
Clumpy after 2 weeks
Kay from Ohio
It started off great but after a couple of weeks the wand became clumped full of product. My eyelashes started looking clumped together and there was a lot of fallout :(
Longer looking without cakey buildup
patootsy from California
First time tring expensive makeup and I can understand why it's the price it is. I love that this mascara doesn't look clumpy or heavy when applied and it makes my lashes look longer. It's also easy to remove. I'm never going back to drug store mascara.
I always buy this product
Dorothy from Frisco tx
Would not buy again from Ulta.

I absolutely love this mascara.
Sue from Mpls. Mn
It's the first mascara that actually makes my lashes longer. My granddaughter who's 16 loves it too.
alana from new england
I use a lot of this product. A little of it gives insane length, but if I want really dark, dramatic lashes, I use a lot more. If you want to do that like me, cool, but You could also mix this with a darker volumizing mascara to get the effect you want! I really like it for days where I just wanna do it fast, because I know it adds so much length immediately .
No red eye!
Yelle from Elko, NV
This is the only mascara I have found that doesn't irritate my eyes! It also stays on all day, a lot of mascaras show up on my skin just below my eye within a few hours. Not this stuff! The mini is just the right amount for me.
It's totally worth it
Shanya from Wiley Texas
This mascara is literally mind-blowing. when I applied it I wasn't expecting much because I have been through so many low quality mascara's, but this one was totally different. The applicator is great for applying on the eyes and it makes my eyelashes look SO GOOD!
Great lengthening mascara!
Miss B from Lewisburg
I am a big fan of Benefit brow products. Thought I would give their mascara a try. Wow was I impressed. Lengthens and separates nicely with no flaking.
BRING IT BACK
Shelby from USA
This brown mascara has been my favorite for awhile now. I was so disappointed when I went to Ulta to re-up when I found out Benefit stopped making it! There isn't a better brown mascara on the market. Please bring it back!

My tried and true!
Caitlin from Pittsburgh, PA
I have been using this for years. I always try something new and come back to this one. It's lengthening and doesn't flake. I love it! I pair it with Big Monsieur from Lancôme and it's chef's kiss! I bought it for my sis for xmas and she loves it!
Ravhel from Virginia Beach
I wear mascara maybe once a week, but this is my go to.
Love it, dramatic difference, easy to apply, and stays out.
etanask from Milwaukee, WI
The wand looks like the old Bad Gal Lash from Benefit which I didn't mind. I felt like the rounded tip helped get those corner lashes covered and pushed up a bit but the wand is the only thing I really like. I felt like I was just applying and applying and not noticing much of a difference in my lashes, they were just darker. This did wash off easily with micellar water and didn't run any more than any eye product does on my oily skin. I'm glad I got it on sale and with a coupon bc I wouldn't have wanted to waste the extra money on this.
lasts well but doesn't do much
flowergirlok from okc
this did almost nothing for my lashes and I used several coats. it did however last well on my lashes through a nap. so if you want more natural looking lashes that lasts this might be for you. personally I want over the top length volume and curl so this isn't my jam.
obsessed with this
klonks from forney, tx
this is the best mascara period. i have curly lashes and these really help them appear longer! i will buy this forever.
Trayjk from New York
I LOVE benefit, but this is a NO. I can feel my stiff dry crumbling lashes until I manage to remove all of it. Frankly. after all the fallout and massive dry clumps I picked off its surprising it was on. but I looked like a racoon, or better yet, like I wore mascara I slept in. I KNOW benefit an do way better than this!! very disappointing!
I used to love her..
You're done from Florida
But we are breaking up…
The wand takes so much of the mascara out! To the point where it's splattering on my cheeks and eye lids.. idk what happened, I used to be obsessed over this one.
The only mascara I buy!

Makes eyelashes so long!!
Best mascara on the market for YEARS-

I usually use Clinique mascaras but I wanted something that really lengthened my lashes. This mascara makes my lashes look so much longer than they actually are! People complain it is clumpy which I haven't dealt with. I do agree it takes some extra time taking it all off but it is worth it?
Snickerdoodle from IN
If you do use this, make sure to wear a primer underneath. Made all of my bottom lashes fall out. I loved it at first.
No tarantula lashes here! Long and natural looking lashes!

The idea of wearing make-up is to enhance your features and look as natural as possible.
