Are they 4 real!?!

Are they real? A question no-doubt you will most definately be asked when wearing this. I have used so many mascaras - lots of designer ones but this by far beats them all to a pulp! I am a contact lense wearer and have sensitive eyes and this is great for me. They key is to build up if you want the extra thick dimension, otherwise they still look nice. No bits caking off and no clumping - Trust me and try it and flutter away!

The best mascara out there

Mascara is the product I can't live without. I've tried many but keep going back to this one as it's the best

14 January 2015 by


very good

I used Maybelline before, but it was very hard to be removed totally. So I changed brand. And I am very happy for it can be removed very easily and clean. This makeup does not get splotchy and stays very natural looking all day. I like it.

I had heard amazing things about They're real, and was very happy when I got this mascara for a really cheap price at Sephora (on sale with some other products, a huge Benefit box or something),but NO-NO-NO. I have thick, long but rather white-ish and absolutely straight lashes, and this one was a catastrophe. The wand is probably good, but the mascara itself is somewhat flaky and well.. Every Maybelline counter mascara is better. So if you really want it, borrow a friends' or buy the smaller one to see, if it fits you.

not worth the money

This is an expensive item which i dont feel it any better than a lower price. Not worth the money

19 December 2014 by



I refuse to use any other mascara than this! Its hands down the best one on the market!

9 December 2014 by


Great find

This does what it says on the tin, makes it look as though you've had lash extensions or are wearing false eyelashes. The perfect finish for your eyes!

25 November 2014 by



I wear this Mascara everyday and I often get a lot of compliments on this mascara. I love it and have tried so many brands but always come back to this. Its so buildable too. I wear soft lenses and have sensitive eyes and this is the only mascara I dont react to. It really is awesome and you definately wont be disappointed :-)

Big disappointment

I bought this mascara because it had very good reviews, but when I put it on it had a lot of chunks and wasn't smooth on my eyelashes at all! It looked more fake than natural!! I never put it on ever since, such a waste of money. Did I have a wrong batch or something? I can't believe it still...

stiff lashes

Bought because of great reviews, very disappointed when using it. Looks good on, thick and curly lashes, doesn't smudge, but lashes get stiff, and the mascara is almost impossible to get off. In spite of good mascara remover. I had to really scrub the skin over- and underneath my eyes, to get the most of the mascara off. Will never ever buy this again.

Simply the best mascara ever

Hands down the best mascara ever, separating, volumising and pitch black! It is hard to get of, but I use an oil and its no problem.

11 September 2014 by



Very disappointed with this mascara.Problem is that it smudges big time which is just what I didn't want. Within a few hours I have panda eyes.

9 September 2014 by



I literally cannot express how much love I have for this mascara, it's just incredible! It's as if I have fake eyelashes on without all of the hassle in the morning! You really don't need to re-apply during the day, I never feel the need to because my lashes look as perfect at the end of the day as they did that morning! I'm always purchasing more when look fantastic have their amazing offers on because I just can't imagine living without it!

8 September 2014 by


This mascara is excellent. It does everything that it promises. I will certainly purchase this mascara again! :)

14 August 2014 by


Best Mascara EVER!

I love this mascara - it doesn't smudge or run when you get a tear or two. It goes on amazingly and worth the price.

5 August 2014 by


Best mascara I've used, lasts for ages (as a casual mascara user) and makes my lasehs look fuller, thicker and longer. Applies on really easy and hardly clumps.

4 August 2014 by


Mascara is amazing, I use the third.

1 August 2014 by


its ok

its an ok mascara, i have short stubby lashes, i dont feel like it made them any bigger. tho i like the tip

28 July 2014 by



I have really long curly eye lashes - this was recommended to use as I find it hard to find one that separates them. The applicator is a hard comb rather than a soft brush - don't know whether that helps- as if I had known this myself - I probably wouldn't have bought it.

28 July 2014 by



This mascara is PERFECT! The only bad thing about it: it's superhard to remove again!

Mascara for Dummies

I've mostly avoided applying mascara because I never got the hang of it. It always looked clumpy, smeared, and unnatural. But I've heard really good things about Benefit's mascara that I decided to try it anyway. It is now part of my everyday make-up routine. I have short eyelashes, but this makes my eyelashes long and thick. The brush is easy to control and it doesn't take a lot of effort or require a lot of strokes to achieve the perfect look. I will definitely buy this again

6 June 2014 by


Though I didn't notice a much of a difference in my lashes compared to the results I've gotten with other mascaras, it did make my lashes look nice, and I really love the wand as it comes with the perfect amount of mascara on it as well as makes the application very easy

Best Mascara

only mascara i'll use. Love it!

4 June 2014 by


I really like it! And I like the brush a lot! It gives a nice everyday natural look and then I would use some other volumizing mascara for extra drama. The first thing I noticed is that it doesn't irritate my eyes (I use contacts) and it doesn't flake (it smudges a bit though, but all mascaras I use does that), but it also still lasts all day on my bottom lashes, which I very hard to find a mascara that does! I would buy it again even though I have to wait 10 days or more after ordering to get it. Totally worth the money and wait!!!

27 May 2014 by



I am a mascara junkie and I have tried a lot of high rated mascaras (and others). I have heard and read a lot about this mascara and wanted to give it a try. The brush is excellent! You get a lot of nice separated lashes and the tip is great. The mascara lets you reach every lash and get to the corners of the eyes. I wish that more mascaras had this brush! However, on the down side it's not a party mascara. It's not very bold but it's good for separating your lashes.

I LOVE this!

I absolutely love this mascara. Think I'm on my fifth one (they last me about 4 months using it everyday). I have very thin, short eyelashes but this mascara makes them so long and thick (not too thick though!) I've tried many others including Mac but this is by far the best!

5 May 2014 by



Excellent mascara. Received compliments from day one of using this mascara. Not clumpy, removes easily too. Will be buying again for sure.

28 April 2014 by


Best out there!

This really does make lashes look fab,but is difficult to remove and after 1-2 weeks dries up in the tube! Don't buy the full size version, get the mini to stop wastage xx

28 April 2014 by


Holy Grail

This is my HG mascara, I can't live without this one. I have very straight lashes and if "waterproof" is not a part of the party, I get the lovingly pandalook :) but this has never smudged on me. It keep my curled lashes up high, even though I always put on more than one coat, they never droop down. Always a repurchase and will of course recommend :)

Benefit mascara

Great mascara, lasts a long time and makes my lashes look so long and full. Was delivered very quickly after ordering. 5 stars.

18 April 2014 by


Brilliant mascara

Love this mascara - lashes to sweep the floor with, long-lasting, but easy to remove.

14 April 2014 by



This is a very good mascara, the only negative I have to say about it i that is hard to wash of.

9 April 2014 by



This is a truely brillisnt mascara after having fash lashes these are better five stars

9 April 2014 by


an absolute must! I do not wear a lot of make up but this mascara is easily my favourite. easy to apply and last ages. makes my lashes so full and natural. love it!

31 March 2014 by



I love this product. I was skeptical about how good it would actually be when I bought it but now I have it I would never use any other mascara! Easily the best one I've used

26 March 2014 by



The best mascara I ever have bought

24 March 2014 by


Love it

I have used this mascara for a couple of years now and it is the best ever. i have quite long eyelashes anyway but this makes them look amazing and really makes my eyes stand out, lasts well and i dont even use eyelash curlers. a MUST buy :)

11 March 2014 by



Does what it says - no cloggy lashes any more and no flaking off during the day.

10 March 2014 by


Love it!

I've tried so many mascaras over the years, Clinique, Lancôme, YSL, Mac, it goes on! Nothing comes close to this, I love it! The brush is so easy to use and makes my non existent fair lashes stand out. Someone is going to really have to pull something out of the bag to beat this!

3 March 2014 by



Mascara to enable you to sweep the floor with your lashes! Stays in place, lengthens and thickens short, blonde lashes, easy to remove with normal eye make-up remover.

17 February 2014 by



This mascara is amazing! It's definitely lengthening and makes your lashes super dark and separated. Even though i wouldn't use the technique Benefit uses to apply this mascara. If you just wiggle your brush while applying the mascara it gives the most amazing effect. I'm so sad that it's now not available for the Netherlands anymore, but i'll keep my hope, and who knows, maybe by the time my mascara is empty it will be available again.

28 January 2014 by


Benefit They're real

Great mascara which really does make lashes look longer and thicker. I have sensitive eyes but no problems with this mascara. I would give it 5 but it is very slightly clumpy.

27 January 2014 by



Probably the best mascara I have ever tried. I use it every day and my eyelashes looks really nice. The mascara lasts all day and doesn't smudge. Definitely a mascara I will buy again.

27 January 2014 by


absolutely look and feel fantastic!!! I look like a doll with this mascara ;)

16 January 2014 by



This mascara is the Best! There's a reason, that it is Called "they're real"!!!

4 January 2014 by


Best mascara eve

After a lifetime of trying to find the perfect mascara (well 20+ years), I can finally say I've found it. Defines each lash. No clumps. No flaking during the day. My eyes look properly done. Highly recommended.

9 December 2013 by



Great mascara, it is more expensive than what I would usually spend but well worth it. Lovely long lashes!

6 December 2013 by


Best mascara I have used yet! Makes lashes so long and full looking, no need for falsies! Definitely my new regular buy :)

6 December 2013 by


Still speechless

A year ago, I received a package from lookfantastic, and it left me speechless. Or, the mascara left me speechless. Benefit They're Real is the best mascara I have ever used. It makes my eyelashes look much so longer, and I love it! Normally I hate mascara.

30 November 2013 by


Excellent mascara

Benefit They're Real! Mascara is a super great mascara! Great consistency and colour, easy to apply and gives amazing volume and separation. Highly recommend.
