Benefit They're Real MascaraHot
A newly designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had! It lengthens, curls and lifts lashes. The liquid is jet black and is long wearing - its smudge proof and wont dry out!
94% more dramatic length and volume, 90% saw base-to-tip curl, 94% saw visible lift, 100% saw long wearing results!
Would definitely recommend.
Except for this one.
Honestly, for all the good reviews out there, I was expecting much more, but I find my drug store mascaras are much better.
It does clump as you apply more product, I have long eyelashes and I find with the use of this product it almost looks stumpy rather than long.
I love the fact that it stays on all day, without "crumbling" and leaving little black bits on your eyes as i have found some other mascaras do. Also doesnt melt or smudge and give you panda eyes. I have fairly "hooded" eyes with long eyelashes so i always struggle to avoid getting mascara all over my upper eye area just after applying it. This formula is a bit thicker so it dries quicker so I'm less likely to get smudges just after applying it.
It does everything it should, makes eyelashes thicker and longer, noticeably so!
The only drawback is the price, but I feel like it lasts longer than other mascaras so you really do get more value for money. And the result is absolutely worth the splurge.
I love it and recommend it to everyone, apply once for an office look and twice for that ladies night. It works wonders.
Then I really dislike the fact that when you want to call it a day - it still wants to hang out! It just refuses to come off. You literally have to buy the remover in order to remove all traces of it. This is already a pretty pricey mascara and having to buy the remover just means you are paying double.
Bottom line: it does what it says and therefore I will repurchase.
14/09/2016: UPDATE: I now really enjoy the benefits of this mascara by pairing it with the They're Real Primer. My lashes are fierce whenever I wear this combo and the very best part is that when it comes to removal time - absolutely no problem at all as the primer has a very flexible formula making it the perfect base!
The wand is plastic and has an array of spikes on it (gentle spikes! ) On the tip, has a rounded bit that also has the same spike texture but now pointing forwards ,so you can reach those really tough inner corners , outer and lower.
I like the mascara, NOT love. It does the job of darkening the lashes and making them more visible. It does not volumise. It does lengthen the lashes but I wouldn't say to the extent of making them look like false lashes , which is what the products is said to do.
I must say that the wand separates the eyelashes really good and the big PRO is that it really does not budge of your eyelashes. It is so long wearing especially on my oily eyelids which usually cause all eye make up to smudge. This would be great for those long evenings out ,where you do not want to worry if your mascara is flaking everywhere and making your eyelashes look spidery.
I know myself , along with the other BB's can agree that this stuff is a bit of a mission to get off. They do sell the They're Real Makeup Remover, but I haven't tried mine as yet as I've used the Garnier Miscellar water and it helps to break down the formula delicately to remove.
So would I say go out and buy it? Maybe. If you lashes are short, try this as you might like the mild lengthening properties. BUT there are many dupes on the market , that may do a better job.
I wouldn't repurchase as I'm looking for a mascara to volumise instead of lengthen.
So here is my take on it. The packaging on the sample is very stylish and it looks like it's going to take my breath away when I open it. It's slightly different to the average black mascara casing you mostly find.
When I opened it up my heart sank a little because I am not a fan of the plastic type mascara brush that is attached to many wands these days. I have tried many over the years and they are said to create a fuller and more curled lash and because I have virtually no lashes this always draws me to them but I am always disapointed. I really do prefer a good old brush when it comes to mascara. Plastic brushes are not stable and the control on the wand is very poor. The only plus side to me on this particular wand is the extra bristles at the end which allows you to get into tiny corners and do the bottom lashes nicely.
What I want from mascara is a lengthening, curling and thickening effect. I honestly don't fell this mascara gave me any of those besides just a little bit of volume maybe. What I do like about it though is that it doesn't dry your lashes out and doesn't seem to smudge too much. I also didn't get that dreaded imprint on my top lid like I do with others. Also it only really takes one good coat because it is a very nice deep black. It does build nicely without clumping which is always a bonus. I also found that it separates my lashes really well which is something I like a lot.
So after testing it out for myself and knowing the result I get from it, and the fact that it has a plastic brush, as well as it being really pricey I doubt I will buy it again in a full size when there are so many other great mascaras far more affordable that give an even better result to my own lashes. I will recommend it to others though because it is a nice dark, easily build-able and non drying formula that lasts. Other people must like the plastic brush or they wouldn't keep making them and so I say if you like that kind of thing and don't expect miracles from your mascara that you might truly like this one.
