YES! "They're REAL!" - Guest Post!




3 letters. O-M-G.

Ladies, if this mascara by Benefit doesn't teeter your totter - then there's probably no hope for you.

Not trying to paint a "Van-Gogh" for you guys, but seriously take it from me- i'm a tough crowd when it comes to mascara.

While not everything in life is all rainbows and butterflies, the wand of this mascara was seriously created by Jesus Christ himself. I can usually tell if the mascara is going to suck or not by looking at the wand alone, and this one passed the test, hands down. The wand is big, thick, and the bristles are magical. I'm not gonna get scientific with you guys, im more whimsical with words, anyways.

"They're Real!" by Benefit is "beyond mascara." It gives you a night time lash within 2 strokes. By the time I was finished applying, my eyelashes touched my eyebrows!!!! Definitely a more "London" look- it is great for a night out on the town- or a night in on the couch with a nice shot of tequila in hand. Mascara should make you feel sultry and sexy, and "They're Real!" will without a doubt flip your pancake in that department. Same effect as falsies, but they aren't! Which makes it that much better.

When I used it for the first time, being the crude skeptic that I am, I definitely thought that the "cons" would outweigh the "pros"- but the second time I used it, that thought went away. Its the kinda mascara that grows on you... LITERALLY.

It is a bit gummy, so i don't suggest it for an "everyday" use- but definitely the "go-to" mascara for special occasions. It makes your eyes POP and will give you the "BAM, IM HERE BITCHES" attitude.

The proof is in the pudding people, so try it. NOW!

  7. got a trial sample from Sephora of They're Real and my first impression was indeed OMG!!! I'm a mascara snob, and this one does it all for me. I don't agree that's it's not for everyday at all, it def IS! looked for the full size at Ulta, but they didn't have it. it's very wet, but that is my preference, just let it dry between coats. I've been using PT Roth's Lashes to Die For, which is good, but I still need to add a thickening mascara... with They're Real, I don't... love love love! finally I think I've found a product that I can stay with for a while... and looking in my mascara bag [yes, bag] I have 15 different brands... and only 2 or 3 that I truly use. the wand has a tip similar to that mascara with the spiky ball wand... can't remember the name... so you can get to all those tiny little lashes on the inner and outer corners... if you are a mascara junkie like I am, you MUST try this stuff!

  8. The mascara you're thinking of with the spiked ball wand is Givenchy - I have that one too and it's great for the bottom lashes and outer corners. I have to try They're Real though, Melissa killed it in this review! <3

  12. just picked up this mascara over the weekend solely based on this post! i love the way it makes my lashes look and i have been wearing it for every day because i like some extra oomph even for day. my only complaint is it has been rubbing off under my eyes. i do have long lashes and the 100 degree heat could have something to do with it, too! fun post!
