Whilst food shopping/trying to find a magazine to read on the train to London, I saw Elle. I can’t say its one that I would typically pick up, but one thing struck me. What’s this? A freebie? Well, that means you have to buy the mag then doesn’t it! Even better that it was a free sample size of Benefit’s ‘They’re Real!’ – a much loved mascara by pretty much everyone. It’s had such good ratings from everyone, from bloggers to celebrities, so I knew I had to try it. My sister uses this daily, but conveniently whenever I want to borrow and try it out to see whether I want it myself, theres “none left” or “I left it in my other bag” (she doesn’t live with me anymore!). This is only a 40g size, so everything is smaller, including the little handle which does make it a tiny bit harder to use especially if you have big hands! Luckily, I don’t, but you wouldn’t be using a sample sized one forever anyway would you.
- 94% saw dramatic length and curl
- 90% saw base-to-tip curl
- 94% saw visible lift
- 100% saw long wearing results.
I really want to give this mascara a better try. I really want to love it! What do you think of this mascara? Is it worth its £19.50 price tag? What Benefit products do you recommend?
