Benefit's 'They're Real!'

As I'm sure many of you are aware, Elle magazine is giving away the trial size version of Benefit's hit mascara, 'They're Real!'
Many people have tried this mascara before, but I was put off by the £16 price tag and the knowledge that I already have a gazillion mascaras waiting to be loved in my make-up bag. However, as this trial sized version - worth £9.50 - was going free in a magazine I like anyway, well, I couldn't resist!

I didn't expect too much from this mascara to be honest, as I have heard that it clumps easily and doesn't do as it promised, but I was pleasantly surprised!

It lengthened my lashes a lot, more than I expected, and had good staying power throughout the day. When it came to removing it in the evening, it was trickier to remove than a lot of mascaras, but then again it proves the staying power of it I guess!

I'm not sure if this is a mascara I would go out on a wing to purchase, but I'm definitely glad I have it, and if I can get it on offer, I shall be snapping it up!


  1. I'm a bit disappointed by this, it doesn't give the 'wow' effect I was expecting but it is still good. Just don't think I'd cough up for a full size one!

  2. This is actually my favorite mascara of all time! It makes my lashes beautiful and never clumps on me! Lovely review hun! :)
