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.

Live this mascara, especially the brush in it. Great for making my lashes so long and full.

My favorite mascara! It was messy at first but I used an old mascara to prime my lashes then this one for the length and it works amazing!
Second time purchasing this mascara. Love it.
Roux from B.R., LA
Amazing mascara that truly creates The longest looking eyelashes that truly are your own. The name of the product says it all… They are real. I love it so much. Have recommended it to numerous friends.
SueB from Tallahassee, FL
I've used this mascara for years and really like it.

ChrisE from Maryland
Non clumping, natural looking lashes! However it's very difficult to remove and it smudges by mid afternoon (could be because of the excessive amount of micellar water needed to remove the mascara) I'm not sure I will buy this again.
I never going to buy this again
Flakys from Enumclaw WA
Too expensive and doesn't worth it definitely don't recommend it !!!!
Absolutely love this mascara
Betty from Northridge
I love the shape of the brush, makes very easy to apply.
I like the mascara but I hate the brush
Lauren from Northern Virginia
The mascara itself is fine but the stiff rubber brush made my eyelashes clump together like an old gunky tube would even the first time I used it. I got a mini tube as part of a set a few years ago and that was great so I don't know if the minis are different or if they've changed the brush since then. It didn't work for me but I'm still giving it three stars
Great Look but hurts my eyes
Cheeky from California
I love love love the way this mascara looks and stays on me. But it hurts my eyes and after years of wearing it makes my eyes all gunky and gives my eyes bags under them.
Redbone from Little Rock, Arkansas
I really like the mascara and the fact that it is waterproof. I didn't feel clumpy or flakey. Thanks for recommending this product to me.
My favorite mascara
Brandi from Texas
I have long lashes and this is one of the few formulas/brushes that do not leave my eyelashes clumped. Tried many other brands and I always come back to this one.
Shelly from Strongsville ohio
This is the best mascara ever made
Heidi from NY
So, it's almost as if they sent the tail end of a mascara like not much goes on the lashes. It's like if I really need to throw out the mascara but I'm waiting to buy another one or one to come in the mail.
The good thing is that it wasn't that expensive but it is the worst mascara I've purchased in years.
If you would like something hurt your eyes buy this

The brush is awful! Hurts my eye! Cheap and hurting eyes
Tiffany from OH
Stays on all day on my sweaty and sometimes oily face and I never developed panda eyes with this on. Application is a little rough because it's a smaller bottle, but I definitely like how easy it is to travel with! It's also easy to take off with Micellar water (but not so much with a wipe).
Love it but it irritates my eyes
Sandra from Cape Coral
This is truly amazing, I just get a lot of itching in my eyes after a while. I have no luck finding a mascara that doesn't irritate my eyes.
I love this!
Jax from Palm Bay, Florida
The best mascara I've ever used. I use it every single day. May lashes look beautiful and very long.
I love this mascara!
Victoria from Chattanooga
I use this mascara every day. It doesn't smudge and lasts all day. People have asked if I have on false lashes bc they look so long. This mascara really highlights my lashes.
One of my faves!
Kate from Hilton Head
It never disappoints. Great coverage, volumizing and a wonderful deep black.
Yes I would
Polly from Amarillo, Tx
It's the best mascara I have ever used
I would buy this product again!
Sue from New Orleans
Absolutely love this mascara. No clumping or flaking with this product.
Do NOT buy- Please read
Nicole from Texas
I was SO excited to try this mascara. It really does lengthen your lashes and leaves them super dark. HOWEVER, this mascara is such a pain to remove. I washed my face, used makeup remover wipes, even applied a little face cream on a tissue and tried wiping. I've scrubbed my eyes raw trying to get it off and it's just spreading it but not removing. I felt asleep with it on and awoke to a pillowcase COVERED in mascara streaks. This stuff wasn't even cheap! To say I'm angry and disappointed is an understatement.
This is the Best by far.
Janz from Saint Louis, mo
I love this mascara! It lengthens and makes lashes separate. When I put it on, I brush for the base to the very tip. I normally apply 3-4 coats but with this I only use 1-2 coats. I'm sold…forever!
This mascara does it all
Sher from Fitchburg, WI
I've tried several mascaras throughout the years and this is the best by far! This is the only mascara that I use. It's a mascara that does it all from lengthening, volumizing and staying put all day. I can see why it;s called "They're Real." People will not believe they are real!
Beat mascara ever
Nina from Carrollton Tx
I love the brush I love how the tip you can separate the lashes and put the thickness on you can tip off your lashes it is just amazing it is the best mascara I have ever used and will continue to use it and recommend it
