So I'm a little bit late jumping on this bandwagon, nevertheless I couldn't not post about my views on this mascara. You've probably all heard of/seen/used the Benefit They're Real mascara by now as it's the most sold mascara in the UK. I'm going to be doing a quick little post on my thoughts towards it and if I feel it's worth the hype.
Firstly I think the price of this product is the biggest reason people are cautious of buying it. At £19.50 for a mascara the price tag is fairly hefty. I purchased the full sized mascara about a month or so ago with my Boots points. I was sad to part with my points as it had taken me a while to build them up but I was there hoping I had put them to good use. Did I put them to good use I hear you ask? Yes, yes I did. For what it's worth I think this mascara is incredible. I've got really short, small lashes and usually go for winged eyeliner to deter from my almost invisible lashes. This has changed how I wear my eye make up now as my lashes are provided with a curl, volume and length. The plastic wand doesn't put me off and the formula is a really good consistency - not too wet or too drying. The only glitch I have with this product is it can be a pain to remove, however I use Nivea Eye Makeup remover followed by the new Loreal Micellar Water which work well in conjunction with one another to make it easier to remove. Overall I really do rate this mascara now and feel I will definitely repurchase after I've used these ones up.
On a side note the little sample size in the photo I got with Elle magazine as they're giving these samples out with their June magazine so get one quick as the magazine is £4.00 and the sample size in Boots is £9.50. So an absolute bargain. Please let me know your thoughts on this mascara - do you love it or hate it? Thanks for reading!
