When I got Benefit They’re Real mascara as a sample several months ago, I was thrilled! I am a fan of high end makeup, except spending $20 on a tube of mascara just feels unreasonable to me. I can get great results from so many drugstore mascaras, so it’s hard to justify the price tag.
Even though I was so excited to get it, I let it sit around for months and months. Maybe I was saving it for a special occasion? But when I finally decided to give it a try (my husband strongly suggested I start using some of the many, many samples I have sitting around) I was quite impressed.

This mascara made my eyelashes seriously long! Almost too long? No. That’s not a thing. But I will say it got a little out of control. It added so much length and volume so quickly, I ended up with some on my eyelids. I have to say, of ALL the mascaras I have tried, Benefit They’re Real is my very favorite for loooooong over the top lashes!
