Benefit's They're Real Mascara

I purposely went out and bought Elle magazine this week because this was freebie. I've been after this mascara for so long, but just never had the pennies - so I took the cheap route and £4 later I am now the proud owner of a sample sized Benefit They're Real Mascara! 

From the Benefit Website: 

They're real! is the UK's No.1 best-selling mascara!
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!
What else you need to know:
  • 94% saw dramatic length & volume
  • 90% saw base-to-tip curl
  • 94% saw visible lift* 100% saw long-wearing results
  • 100% saw long-wearing results

I have to say, this mascara is absolutely perfect. Usually retailing at £19.50, I can see why so many people love it and splurge out on it. I've been wearing it for the last two days and my eyelashes look and feel fab. I, for some reason, seem to have barely any eyelashes...seriously, it's ridiculous and it's why I tend to wear falsies on nights out because my eyes are just...bleh. But this mascara makes them look so much better, my lashes look longer and bolder than usual, and it genuinely makes me feel so much more confident about my eyes and the way I look!

The packaging is gorgeous as you would expect for a higher end mascara. Simple and sleek, is all I can say. It's pleasing to look at (ya'know for a mascara!) I like that it comes in a little cardboard box too as you don't get that with many drugstore mascaras and I think it adds a nice touch!

Overall I would definitely recommend this mascara and will probably go out and buy it properly when my lovely little sample runs out!

Do you have this mascara? Do you like it?

  1. I have this mascara as I got it in ELLE too. Before getting it as a freebie, I wouldn't of wanted to pay £19.50 but when this little 'un runs out, I'm going to buy the full version, for sure!

  5. I do love this mascara and went out and got the freebie too. I haven't even read the magazine!! i found it smudges under my eyes though. Going to keep giving it a go but ending up with panda eyes isn't good!

  6. I got this sample too, love it! I wanna get the full size product but I wish they came in a mini size like this...find them soo much easier to use! xxx

  7. I got this too and I love it. It has made me want to fork out to by the full product although its twenty odd pound xo
