Don't Believe The Hype: Benefit They're Real

Benefit They're Real Mascara




Benefit's They're Real mascara is possibly one of the most hyped beauty products I know of. It makes some pretty big claims on the box and is meant to be the best selling mascara. I'm just going to come right out and say it I don't get it! I was excited to try this the packaging looks great so shiny and sleek but thats where everything I like about this mascara ends. First up the applicator, I know many people love it but I HATE plastic comb like applicators. It has very short bristles and the pointy bit at the end is more of a hazzard to my eye than "helping me reach the edges". I am fortunate in that I have pretty decent lashes I hardly ever need to curl them and usually I can wack just about any mascara on and they will look 10times better and not clumpy. I must be in the percentages that saw none of the things benefit claims. Instead this makes my lashes clump like nothing else, I need to use a clean mascara brush to unclump them and even then it takes me an age to get them looking decent again. Spider lashes are not my thing. I know a lot of people love this mascara and as everyone is different it might just be my eyelashes that dont agree with this mascara. However for me this was just to overhyped and really doesn't live up to it. Benefit's They're Real comes in at £19.50, which for me just definitely is not worth it when I get better results from a Mascara at £6. I don't enjoy writing negative reviews but I know myself and others do as it gives a better perspective of a product rather than just falling for the hype, this is only my second don't believe the hype post, read the first here

 I just want to add again that this is not everyone's experience with the mascara but it was mine and I know people like to know about products that people don't like as well as ones that they do.
So let me know if you've tried any products just not worth the hype.

  1. Oh no I love this mascara! I have really rubbish eyelashes this is literally the only mascara I've ever used that you can actually see my lashes after I've used it! Such a shame you didn't like it! Least you're already blessed with gorgeous long lashes! :).

    1. I really wanted to get on with it especially since it cost so much but I just didn't!

  2. I totally agree. I wasn't impressed with this at all. I have quite long lashes too so maybe if your lashes are long it just doesn't look right?

  3. I felt the same with this mascara, I actually made myself keep trying it for ages in case I was missing something but it just didn't work for me either. I prefer Maybelline The Falsies!

    1. I know so many people love it thats why I didn't really want to put this up but everyone is different so I suppose it can only be expected some people wont get on as well with a product :(

  5. It's such a shame you didn't get on well with this mascara! I find it works really well for my lashes but this just goes to prove that everyone is different and you can't take other peoples reviews 100% - what works for one won't necessarily work for another! x

    1. Blogging has definitely taught me that I read as many reviews now before jumping in and buying something! x

  6. I didn't like this mascara either! It was too runny for me and ended up with mascara mess under my eyes!

    1. That was pretty much my experience I don't like negative reviews but sometimes I think you need to let people know that just because loads of people love it doesn't mean its the best
