This is my first mascara review, so be kind. I hope the pictures are good enough to describe the difference between before and after. I suppose the most important thing about a mascara review is the final result. As you can see from the images above, I have very short eye lashes to begin with. So no matter what I do, they’ll still look “short”. The result is nonetheless, wonderful after two coats: strong looking lashes minus the “spider-effect”. It opened up my eyes and created a natural upward curl. I think it’s good enough alone for a very simple look like the one above. As a girl who likes wearing lots of eye make-up, I feel like I can wear it alone (with a bit of lipstick) and still be comfortable with social activities. I don’t think they look like fake lashes on me, it simply looks like I’m wearing lots of mascara. However, that’s good enough for someone who is not blessed with beautiful lashes. 😛
I find They’re Real Mascara a little too expensive for £19.50, but I suppose it’s one of those products you use everyday for months. This is not a waterproof formula (yet) so it will smudge. This happened to me the other day when it was hot and I was taking lots of photos and squinting a lot, but it’s bound to happen with any eye make-up. I’ve seen a few reviews where people mention that it’s hard to remove. I haven’t had this problem, but I suppose all the reviews are based on personal opinion.
What’s your opinion on Benefit They’re Real? By the way, let me know if you prefer the natural background or the ordinary white one.
