Friday Favourite #8: Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara

Hey Guys! This weeks Friday Favourite is not only my favourite of this week, but my ultimate favourite mascara; Benefit’s They’re Real. I love this mascara so much. Just one coat of it and your eyelashes get so long and thick that your actually have that wearing fake eyelashes feeling, of looking out from under your very long lashes, for the first five or ten minutes of wearing it before you get used to it. I’ve never had that feeling with any other mascara, or gotten them so long and clump-free at the same time, which I love because I really hate it when a mascara looks clumpy. This mascara makes your eyelashes look amazing, and really opens up the eye, while keeping your lashes looking somewhat natural and not like you have tons upon tons of mascara covering each lash. It is €27, which is fairly expensive for mascara when you can get a Rimmel one for €8.99 but there is no way  the cheaper alternative is as good as this mascara. I’ve tried out many mascara’s (including Maybelline’s The Falsies) and none has ever made my eyelashes look as good as Benefit’s They’re Real.

The only problem with it, which I don’t even find a problem, is that if you accidentally forget to take your makeup off before bed, you will wake up the next morning with your eyelashes very clumped together and it will be hard to get off. However, I see this as a bit of a positive because if I’m wearing this mascara and feeling lazy and want to go straight to sleep without taking off my makeup, I will always stay up 5 minutes more to make sure to take off my makeup, and if you take it off the night before, it’s as easy as taking off any other mascara with a makeup wipe (or Soap and Glory’s Peaches and Clean which I like to use to remove my makeup). This is a positive about this mascara for me because before I got it, I used to be a lot lazier about taking off my makeup, which is bad for you as it can cause premature wrinkles and lead to spots and impurities, but now I always make sure that I remove my makeup before bed every single night. Overall, this is my favourite mascara of all time. I LOVE IT!!!
