It’s the mascara that’s beyond belief! Benefit They’re Real! Mascara in Black boasts a jet black formula that lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look!
The exclusive brush in this Benefit They’re Real! Mascara in Black is specially designed to maximise the performance of the long-wearing, glossy formula – revealing lashes you never knew you had! Staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The precision bristles on the custom-domed tip lift, define and curl even your tiniest lashes. The end result...luxurious, silky lashes that won't smudge, clump or dry out.

It was not as great as I though it would be. dry and hard. I think YSL's mascara is better

Absolutely love this mascara and would recommend it to anyone. No clumping and long thick lashes. One downside, its not the easiest to remove, but you can't have everything

I love this mascara and have all my friends and family using it too.
It stays on and leaves your eyelashes looking long and full.

This mascara is definitely one of the best I've tried - and I've tried a lot! It adds so much length to your lashes! I would say don't load too much mascara onto the wand, and move side to side when applying, it will get clumpy if you add too much. But definitely something I've always have stocked in my makeup bag. Also bought the blue in it!

Yay a decent mascara and a reasonable price. The wand is great to use and doesn't leave your lashes looking all clumpy, it separates the individual eye lashes as you apply. Brought it on the back of a recommendation and will definitely have no quarms about recommending it to anyone else. Great purchase.

When I received a mini version of this mascara in a benefit kit I wasn't expecting much, however once I've put it on I immediately fell in love. Ended up ordering a full size one shortly after!
8 September 2015 by
Quick delivery, great product and fab price with my birthday discount! Very happy 😊

I love this one! Gives my lashes long and curled lashes - even without a lashcurler! Love the wand as well. Easy to apply, mascara last all day - even during rain and hard training!
But if You're looking for a lot of volume, you'll need to apply 2-3 layers.

amazing super black and conditioning, makes my lashes look massive.
best on the market and Ive tried them al, Dior, max factor, l'oread, YSL.....(I was loyal to Diorshow but this is far superior)

I was meaning to buy and try Benefit mascara for a long time after everyone who was using it had nothing but good things to say about it and when I saw the whole set in the same price as just the mascara I bought it as I thought it was a great deal and I could finally see how 'wonderful' it is.... and it's not! I can't belive all the positive reviews! So far I was using Max Factor Masterpiece and I have to say it's absolutely brilliant in comparison and half price cheaper! I use it everyday and it's terrible, it clumps, there is no chance for second coat and after all day at work it smudges on the top of my eyes! Poor poor quality and definietly won't be buying again!

It's like any other mascara but just so expensive !!! And it drys out fast.
Not woth the money at all I'm super upset my eyelashes look the same as if I used my bourjois mascara which is better and I would recommend it (it's the best I've ever used)
13 August 2015 by
I will never buy another mascara again, they last about 4 months with daily use. Faultless and make my eyelashes massive
12 August 2015 by
The Best mascara I have ever tried.
10 August 2015 by
I've been using Benefit badgal mascara for years and bedn happy with it, but I wanted to try something new.
I have fine shortish lashes so need a good mascara.
So I tried They're Real and I wasn't disappointed, really good coverage and lengthened my lashes.
The only reason I haven't scored five stars is because I'd love a waterproof version!
I feel this was a good investment, even though Benefit is quite pricey.
28 July 2015 by
Fantastic item, quick delivery. Would definitely use again!!
20 July 2015 by
Amazing mascara, love it! Easy to apply finds lashes I never knew I had! Would highly recommend.
17 July 2015 by
Now eye lash girl!
I adore this mascara! The lashes look so good after applying this. The only "bad" thing is that is seems like the the joy is shortlived, when it suddenly is empty :(
17 July 2015 by
The best mascara ever, I cannot live without this!
14 July 2015 by
Sick and tired of paying too little for mascaras that made my eyelashes look like mangled spiders, or caused people to ask me whether I had contracted a severe case of conjunctivitis (thus prompting them to say, "you shouldn't put make up on if you do"), I decided to treat myself to a mascara that makes my eyelashes look thicker, longer and, well, generally less diseased. Benefit is one of my favourite make up brands and this legendary mascara certainly lives up to the hype. It really does transform my eyelashes, making them look full, curly and pretty darn flawless. It's very easy to apply with the precise wand and it stays on all day; never showing any signs of flaking or wearing away. You really do get your money's worth with this product. It's one of the best mascaras - if not the best - available.
12 July 2015 by
I've tried a lot of mascaras but nothing beats this. It makes lashes thicker, bolder and longer! A little also goes a long way!
9 July 2015 by
Quick delivery and the product is brilliant.. long lasting, doesn't flake.
6 July 2015 by
I absolutely love this product and recommend to every one. This will definitely be my only mascara from now on.
15 June 2015 by
The best mascara I've ever tried!
5 June 2015 by
Great mascara, lovely lashes with just a few strokes.
Delivered a few days after ordering- good price and fast delivery!!
3 June 2015 by
loving this mascara, really makes a difference on your lashes!! And as always, really fast delivery from Lookfantastic

I have tried so many mascaras only to find I end up having panda eyes. I have finally found the perfect mascara for me. There is no smudging, flaking or clumping. Really pleased with my purchase.
26 May 2015 by
I do really like this mascara when it's teamed with a mascara primer.
It lengthens and adds volume.
5 May 2015 by
I had read in a magazine that this was fantastic do I had to give it a go. It did stay in although sometimes it looked clumpy and didn't seperately the lashes very well.
29 April 2015 by
LIves up to being #1 selling mascara. Adds length and volume. First uses are a bit too wet then after works perfect. Great packaging. Arrived quickly.
27 April 2015 by
You've probably already heard that this product is a winner, and I'm here to confirm this.
It's is a great high-street product at such as reasonable price.
Depending on how far I want to take it, I can really build up my lashes (for that night out), or have a more fuller natural look (for day to day use). I'm happy with the length of my lashes, and use this product to add body and thicken them. The brush is great for this, and really lets me work on my inner lashes.
The application lasts me all day, and doesn't drop down, the container is perfect in size and fits nicely in my bag.
This is the only mascara that I now use, and it has never dryed up in the bottle x
13 April 2015 by
I've used this mascara in the past and it was lovely however, it dried out really quickly and didn't last long.
13 April 2015 by
Best mascara ever :) no smudging and perfect lashes!
20 March 2015 by
Fabulous lashes for a change. The second time I bought this item, It won't be the last. It makes a Great job of sparse lashes.
28 February 2015 by
It's been a love-hate relationship with this mascara, but I learned to love it after all! It really does what it claims. I gave it only 4 stars because I recently got the Roller Lash one and that one is beyond belief :))
27 February 2015 by
The best mascara on the market - simply :-)
23 February 2015 by
Not the magic potion I believed it would be - there are plenty of other mascaras at a more reasonable price that do pretty much the same thing. Pros: nice brush, lashes look thicker, easy to apply. Cons: flakes, very difficult to remove, does not have the lengthening effect it promises.
20 February 2015 by
I have been a long term user of YSL faux lash extension mascara but because it always dries out so quickly I thought I would give this a try. It doesn't give me the same length as the YSL but I'm happy with it and I like the applicator which prevents lashes from sticking together. Great everyday mascara!!
19 February 2015 by
This is a high quality mascara which is a great volumizer. You don't need much of it to get the desired effect. I like that it is very long lasting and doesn't flake which I hate with mascaras. Will definately repurchase.
17 February 2015 by
This is an amazing mascara, really lengthens and defines my lashes! Would defo recommend!
16 February 2015 by
This mascara is just the best! And believe me, I tried a lot of them. Every time having 'panda effect'. But not with this one. Reminds me of the golden double-brush Guerlain had at some point but cheaper. Definitely recommend it to everyone!
11 February 2015 by
It doesn't clump and washes off easily
9 February 2015 by
Hands down best mascara i have ever used! Doesn't smudge at all and makes my lashes so long!
6 February 2015 by
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!
19 January 2015 by
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
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.
6 January 2015 by
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.
25 December 2014 by
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
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!
