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.

I liked this product in the past, but they've changed the brush for the worse.

Dry mascara, I hate it. There's hardly any product.

Best mascara I have ever owned!

It dies the job on one application per eye.
Great Quality but Dries Out Quickly
Jess from Exton, PA
It works very well, works smoothly without clumping. Sometimes drug store mascaras have sort of a chemical or something in their ingredients that makes my eyes tear up while applying. This does not have that.
My only frustration is that I am not a daily makeup wearer and sometimes go a week and a half or so without using this mascara. I feel that even when screwed in tightly, it dries out too quickly for me to use it all. Kind of frustrating. But I recommend the product especially if you wear mascara more frequently than I do to get more use for your money.

First time buying it and I love it.
I don't think I'd give it a 2nd chance
Sosolam from Culver City
I thought I was buying a brand I got before because I saw the bottle. But when I opened it it was a different style. I thought I'd give it a chance. Not too happy about it but it'll do for now. I hardly wear make up so, it'll last for a while.
Does what drug store mascara does!
Stefanyjo from Hutchinson ks
I would not buy this mascara, I bought two of them and the other one I will be returning and not going to ever buy again! I could have gotten four mascaras that work well for the price of this mascara! Avon mascara is better than this!!

The only eye brow pencil you will ever need
Lengthens but takes forever to dry, sticky
K.Lee from Boston, MA
This mascara does lengthen but don't sneeze within 20 minutes of application or it will be everywhere! It takes forever to dry, and when it does, a big blink will stick your top and bottom lashes together.
Thick and clumpy
Mrs. Clean from New Jersey
I had high hopes for this as I have short and sparse lashes but was disappointed the minute I took the wand from the tube it was thick and just clumped on the brush, there for it clumped up on my lashes.I tried it anyway but within an hour or so it was flaking all under my eyes and on my lids it was so embarrassing I couldn't wait to get home and get it off.
Greatest of all
Lisa T. from MA
Greatest mascara. People think you have fake lashes in when you wear it. Wouldn't use any other mascara / ever!
An Essential - Never Leave Home Without It!
Lilah from BG, KY
I wear this mascara every single day. You want some dang good mascara that really guarantees length, this is the end all be all mascara. I get compliments on it all the time, people even ask me if I'm wearing falsies ha.

Repeat buyer of this, but has something changed?
CLP from Ct
I took a little break from this mascara, but recently purchased again and it doesn't seem as bold as I remember. Has formula changed?

Really makes a difference!!
GrammyL from Columbia
I am allergic to lots of mascara so I was thrilled to be able to try the travel size to check this one out. Was looking for something like Thrive and this was recommended. Really does lengthen lashes!! Comes in 2 colors and 2 sizes. Really HAPPY with this.
Love this one
