♡ Review: Benefit 'They're Real' MascaraMarch 06, 2013
Despite mentioning this in my February Favorites, I couldn't resist giving this mascara a little post of its own. I think it's safe to say that i'm pretty fond of this mascara. I've been using it everyday since the end of January and continue to be amazed by how beautiful it makes my lashes.
With two coats of this I find my lashes are both lengthened, thickened and separated to the extent that they almost look 'fake' (in a good way!). As the brush is quite skinny and has small bristles even on the tip, it makes precise application easy. I'm able to apply mascara to the finer lashes in the corners of my eye which really enhances the overall 'fullness' of their appearance.
The only downside to this mascara is that I've found it does have a tendency to smudge slightly throughout the day. If you don't mind a couple of touch ups, (mainly checking you don't have splodges of black smeared across your brow bone), then i'm sure this wouldn't be much of an issue. Wiping away any excess mascara at the ends of your lashes with a cotton bud after application also helps to reduce the amount of smudging.
Benefit's They're Real mascara retails for £18.50 in the UK, which although is on the expensive side, isn't as extortionate as some higher end mascaras.
