Lashes are the key to every slaying face and have been for centuries but yet it’s still so difficult to find the right mascara. Luckily I’ve found my godsend! Hallelujah for Benefits They’re Real Mascara!!
I bought this mascara when it first launched in 2011. I remember being slightly disappointed that it wasn’t as amazing as expected. It didn’t really do anything for me. I then fell in love with Rimmel’s Lash Accelerator Endless. For at least 5/6 Years this mascara has always been my go-to mascara. It’s £7.99 in Superdrug’s and that’s without their usual 3 for 2 offers. It lengthens, it thickens but it doesn’t curl – without at least a good few hundred coats.
However bringing it back to 2017, Benefit releases a Gorgeous and Go make up set exclusive to Boots containing; High Beam Highlighter, That Girl Face Primer, Galifornia Blush, Ready Set Go Brow Gel, They’re Real Mascara and the new They’re Real Double The Lip Lipstick and a cute make up bag. It also contained a 500 Boots points voucher if you bought any of the products and a free Benefit makeover. At £29.50 that’s a bargain!
God didn’t just bless me with small oriental eyes, he also blessed me with straightlong lashes. Curling lashes with a curler equates to broken lashes – I’ve always either hoped for the best with my Rimmel Lash Accelerator and crumpled my lashes with coats and coats of mascaras or stuck on a pair falsies. (Blog post soon on my fav lashes btw)
Whilst I only bought the set because I wanted the lipstick and the primer I was amazed at how good the mascara was. With just two coats my lashes were long and curled! I had no flakiness, no clumsiness, and it literally took two coats. I even had my mum ask me which falsies I had on. Now if it can work wonders to my annoyingly straight eyelashes imagine what it could do to naturally curled lashes.
Whilst this mascara has been out a while and I’ve only just jumped on the bandwagon, the hype is real girls. I’m not quite sure why I didn’t like the mascara all them years ago but I absolutely love it now.
Whilst I would recommend the Rimmel Lash Accelerator for a minimal day to day look, I do think Benefits They’re Real needs to be in every girls make up case.
Que the selfies…
