Review: They're Real by Benefit

Hello guys! I know what you're thinking: Two posts in one week? Well I know that I had skipped a week previously, and I just got in the stuff I ordered on Ulta! I thought about doing a haul blog post, but I decided that I wanted to do this review instead. So if you have never tried They're Real by Benefit and/or curious about it, I am going to give you my personal opinion about it. Now, I will warn you guys that I am in no way a professional when it comes to makeup. In fact, I really got into makeup like three months ago. So what I am going to post is just opinion based on what I have already tried and how I liked the product. So let's get started!

 First things first about this mascara is that it's applicator is AH-MAZING! Look at how many bristles there are and how long the actual applicator is! I love this because when I tried it for the first time, it really got each individual lash. Like even the hard to reach spots. When I was doing research for this product before I got it, I asked my best friend, who is like my beauty guru, about it. I was unsure if I was going to like it, but she reassured me I would, just because of the applicator alone. And she did not disappoint! I really hope my picture does it justice because it is just, so amazing. I can't even explain to you how much I love it.

 Next thing I love about this product is that it is really lightweight. I have sensitive eyes, so I find that I have to be really picky about what mascaras and eye products I use. Like I have bought mascaras before that I felt like made my eyes really heavy so I have stopped using them, even though everything else about it was fantastic. With They're Real, the formula is pretty lightweight. It honestly doesn't even feel like I am wearing makeup, and yet my lashes look good. Here's a picture of me with it on.

 Please excuse my ratchet eyebrows in the first picture! But I think you guys see what I am trying to say. It's so lightweight without sacrificing the volume and the definition I wanted. There's very few mascaras I can honestly say have this quality. So I love it in that aspect!

 Lastly, I love the actual bottle of the mascara. I know this may sound weird, but I tend to prefer mascara tubes that have curves on them. I find that it's easier for me to hold the bottle as I am applying it if it is curvy. Maybe that's just a personal preference that has no relationship to the actual mascara quality, but it's going to make this post because, well, because I like it.

 I hope this short post has been helpful to any of you guys looking to invest in this mascara. I would say that if you can afford it, then most definitely get it. It's a little on the pricer side at $23. But it, in my opinion, is worth the investment. If you want some of the same benefits of They're Real but don't want to pay $23 for mascara, I would recommend you get the Covergirl Lashblast mascara. It is lightweight in its consistency, and has an applicator comparable to the Benefit mascara. Plus it goes for around $8, which is almost a third of the cost of They're Real.
