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.

My Go-To for Years
MomofLots from Redlands, CA
I'm very fair complexion and thin lashes, I have used this product for at least 10 years. I don't like to look super done up or garish and tend to go with more natural makeup. It can be difficult to remove but nothing my cereve foaming cleanser can't handle.
When you first use it there is a lot of product on the brush, I just scrape some off into they top of the tube. It's like when you get too much mayo on a knife. That issue goes away pretty quickly and you're left with a great product that doesn't make your lashes clumpy. It seems to curl well as well. Every time I consider changing products I end up returning to this.

I first got a mini of this mascara in my Birchbox and absolutely fell in love with it. I had to spend the money to buy more. It is a little pricier than I liked, but so well worth it. This makes my lashes look great and lasts forever.
Do Not Buy This
Jess from Tulsa, OK
I finally thought I had found the best mascara and I was so wrong! It's impossible to take off and literally removes your lashes. I used to have big gorgeous lashes and now it looks like a joke. This mascara has Ruined my lashes. Please do not look at the good reviews these are all people that recently used it. I've used it for about 3 weeks and now my lashes look like a boys. Please do not buy this save your eyelashes!

Beautiful but smudges
Gen from Colorado
This mascara looks really nice on my lashes. It is a little bit clumpy, but it helps if you wipe a little off the brush. I was really bummed out after a few hours of wearing it when I realized it was smudging under my eyes. I have really oily skin and long eyelashes (top and bottom), so I know it's not just the mascara. However, I do use a drugstore mascara that is not waterproof and it doesn't smudge at all. I loved the look of this mascara and was really hoping it would work out. Unfortunately I just have to go back to my usual mascara.
Monkey19 from Youngstown Ohio
I have tried so many mascaras and this is the one that is the best for me. I love the brush with it's spikey end to get all those smaller lashes covered. The formula does clump a little but I have found that most mascaras do. I just keep sweeping the brush to get rid of them. It doesn't bleed onto my upper lids like a lot of other products do. And it makes my lashes super long and thick.
My lashes are longer!
SarahP from Illinois
I've been using this for a couple months now and I can see my lashes longer!! It looks like I have extensions on! I love it! By far my favorite mascara! Smooth easy application!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Sofie K from IL
THE BEST mascara! I get so many compliments on my lashes when I use this! Everyone thinks I have fake lashes on but its just the mascara. Nothing else like it.
It's good but

My Daily Mascara
Emi from San Diego, CA
I use this as my everyday mascara. It stays on all day and can handle a light cry or getting splashed in the face. I usually need waterproof mascara but this one stays on well!
Mamabear316 from Kansas
This is a great mascara. I honestly have noticed a huge difference in my lashes after about 2 weeks of use. This mascara does not clump and does not dry out as quickly as other brands. As a matter of fact, I am almost out and this has not dried up yet.
I wish I could give 100000000000/5 stars
Julia K from Tennessee
BEST MASCARA EVER! This has been my favorite for the past 6 months and I constantly get asked if my lashes are real! The spikes at the end of the wand help to coat the small front lashes and the end lashes to give it a dramatic effect! It's so easy to build and does not clump! It keeps my lashes so curled all day! Forever my favorite!
One of my top 5 mascaras
clmurphy24 from Warminster, PA
This mascara is in my 'top 5' because it has a nylon tip which for me, I think the mascara goes on better and more evenly than a bristle brush tip. I get great coverage without clumping or flicking off when dry. I've always used an eyelash primer beforehand with every mascara I've tried. It also doesn't seem to dry out as fast either.

This is my daily wear mascara- it's lengthening and subtle. Never clumps and lasts all day in SWFL heat.
Delivers on promises!
Lisa from Puyallup WA
This mascara works! It lengthens and separates my lashes. I had fully expected to end up returning it for not living up to its promises, but it's now my favorite!
I absolutely love this mascara!!
Felisha from West Virginia
Gives my lashes length and makes them look so long and full.. The brush works great it helps keep the lashes separate and fans them out! I definitely recommend and will buy this again and again!!
I will continue buying this product over and over again!❤️
Chadams from Indiana
I have bought this for the past 7 months now because I love it so much! I received it in a free birthday gift pack that I received from Ulta for my birthday last year and I'm committed to this mascara!!!! It makes me look like I have fake lashes when they are actually just mine! It makes them look longer and fuller!
Court from Orange County,CA
I feel like this mascara does a good job lengthening and separating my lashes but after only a few hours it starts to smudge on my eyelids and lower lash line. It also flakes. I have used every drug store mascara before and have never had this problem. I really wanted to love this mascara, but this is just not it for me. I suggest to buy the sample size to try it first.
julial from Atlanta, GA
I've been using this on and off for a few weeks. It's so hard to get off even with makeup remover, leaving leftover mascara. Every time I wear it for a few days in a row my eyes get bloodshot red. I've read similar reviews on Reddit of other people having the same issue.
Save your money and just buy drugstore.
One of benefits best mascaras
Goldie_indisguise from Cape Coral
This is my daily go-to. I look polished but not ready for glam. The wand makes application easy. No clumps. Separates and lengthens.
Will not purchase again
