Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara

I have always believed the secret to long, “flirty” eyelashes was simply an eyelash curler. I was wrong. It takes an eyelash curler and Benefit’s They’re Real mascara!

Price: $23, Benefit

Application: The mascara wand bristles extend to the very end allowing for precise application. First, I curled my lashes with an eyelash curler. Second, I applied one coat of mascara on lashes from root to tip. Then using the tip of the wand I added an additional coat to the outer eyelashes for longer length.

Results: Dramatically longer lashes. The proof is in the photos. I have never seen mascara photograph so well! This mascara separates and lengthens lashes without clumping and, if you ask me, achieves the same look of false lashes without the weight and glue. Wear it solo for a fresh face look, or with your favorite shadows and liner for major glam.

Score: 5/5
