Review: Benefit They’re Real! Mascara, Giving You Great Lash Separation and Smudge-Proof Up To 12 Hours

I’m always a mascara junkie and never miss it. This time I will be trying on Benefit They’re Real! Mascara and I believe they are also known as Beyond Mascara too. Mascara is the best to flatter my lashes as I do have quite long lashes, thanks to the inexpensive lash serum that I have been loyal for many years.

This mascara comes in a handy shiny dark grey tube which gives a very classic and luxury. The designation is modern, slightly different with the vintage packaging that Benefit would normally come out with. Benefit Beyond Mascara Brush

Here is a show of the mascara brush that has evidently pointy bristles which promotes great lash separation during application. It has custom-domed tip which able to reach the lashes at the narrow corners as well as bottom lash line.

Recommended application from Benefit: Position wand horizontally & wiggle brush from side to side, base to tip, to achieve maximum volume, length & lift. Hold wand vertically & stroke upward to curl & separate. Layer generously as desired.

Benefit Beyond Mascara Ingredients

This mascara is free from paraben and alcohol, thumbs up for it. Also, this mascara is made in France with the life span of 6 months upon opening.

Benefit Beyond Mascara Application

I have always love to layer my mascara to achieve the best result from it. I enjoyed layering with this mascara as it didn’t clump as I went on with 3 layers. In fact, I did notice that my lashes were lifted even higher and darker.

Above all…

This mascara is one of my current favorite as it didn’t clump when I use it with a few layering and yet it doesn’t feel heavy on my lashes. As a result, it gives quite a good lash separation and I believe the mascara brush has contributed to achieve this effect. For as long as I wore it up to 12 hours, I have not face any problem on smudges though it is not mentioned that it is smudge-proof or waterproof. With this effect, I would recommend for those who wants to achieve great lash separation, definition and lengthy lashes. It didn’t give much volume on my lashes for the amount of layers I have applied. Even though I have layered quite a bit of the mascara, I didn’t find much trouble to remove it with my makeup remover sheets.
