Benefit They're Real! Beyond Mascara

Benefit They're Real! Beyond Mascara - Boots/ASOS - £18.50

I realise I'm a bit behind on posting about this product but I wanted to give it a fair review from the beginning of using it towards the end of the product. I find that it's hard to judge mascaras because I can completely change my opinion on them from when I first start to use it to when it's been used for a while. Anybody else feel like that?!

I bought this when ASOS had a lovely offer of 25% off for students and received it just two days later along with a few other beauty bits. So I didn't pay full price and after using it for some time now I'm still not sure whether I would.

This mascara has had a lot of hype surrounding it recently so I had very high expectations. The picture above shows just one layer on my lashes, this can be built up with ease and the wand is so great for getting those little lashes in the corner. It does give brilliant results and just a quick wiggle of the wand gives fantastic length and volume. 

One thing I'm not so happy about is the transfer of mascara from my bottom lashes, leaving me with small black dots under my eyes after a couple of hours. My under eye concealer is then ruined and I walk around with panda eyes for the rest of the day. 

When used on my top lashes I really can't wish for a better mascara, however I'm finding myself reaching for other mascaras for my bottom lashes. Do I really want to be doing that every day?

Have you tried the They're Real mascara? What do you think?


  1. this is the first review of this product that i've seen that hasn't completely raved about it! i still want to try it though, but i can imagine having to use another mascara for bottom lashes would be a pain! x

  2. Ooh, thanks for the honest review, I don't like spending more than about £10 on a mascara as they don't last very long but have been really tempted after all the hype! XO

    Please check out my blog if you get a chance, I've just started out and any comments or followers would mean the world to me <3

  3. I bought this whilst I was in Amsterdam only due to the hype round it; and I wasn't pleased! I find it very hard to take off and ruins my eyelashes! :(

  4. I think it looks great for just one layer!
