Well hello there beautiful! I hope you’re having a stupendous week so far. As you can see by the title of the post, I’m going to be doing a review on the entire Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Collection! I’m sure you’ve seen or heard the buzz about the two new products Benefit has added to their They’re Real Collection that are innovative and highly coveted. I would like to share that these products were gifted to me from my employer, Sephora. I am not getting paid to do this review nor did Sephora tell me to do a review. This review is based on my personal experience with the products and is not influenced by anyone other than myself. With that being said, continue with the post to view more photos and my thoughts about each product! 🙂
Side note: Products are sold separately and are all available where Benefit Cosmetics is sold!
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
WHAT IS IT? The Benefit They’re Real Mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Benefit’s jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had! (source)
PRICE: $23 USD for (0.3 oz)
REVIEW: Ok let me tell you that this mascara is off the chains! It lengthens, volumizes and stays put; it pretty much does everything. If you’re a mascara freak, I know you’re going to like this. The wand is made of plastic bristles that will aid in the lengthening and volumizing aspect of this mascara. What makes this They’re Real Mascara unique is the “dome tip” applicator. Simply tilt the applicator facing vertically to bump up the lashes for a more flirty lash look or if you need to separate your lashes you can do it with the same technique. This stuff is AMAZING! RATING: 5 STARS!
Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner
WHAT IS IT? The Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner is the first ever lash-hugging gel liner pen! This matte black gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex Tip hugs your lash line from corner to corner. The closer the line, the bigger the eye! (source)
PRICE: $24 USD for (0.846 oz)
REVIEW: Uh, let me tell you… me and this Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner has come a very long way. We have built a love-hate relationship with one another throughout the testing process. And boy let me tell you that it took a while, like seriously a while before I got the hang of this eyeliner. I’ve heard a ton of feedback from my fellow makeup artists and clients alike about the struggles (and raves) they have experienced with the product. There are a ton of different methods in the application process (link of video down below) that will help anyone achieve their desired eyeliner look. It literally takes me seconds to create a bold wing with my favorite eyeliner on a daily basis and it was quite a struggle perfecting my wing with this eyeliner so I put it aside and didn’t plan to touch it ever again. I was asked for feedback on this eyeliner from a Benefit Cosmetics Trainer, I was honest and told her it wasn’t for me. She then encouraged me to use this eyeliner for 5 days straight and by doing that I will master it. AND THAT I DID! After all of that trial and error, I love this eyeliner! It goes on extremely precise and is hard to remove; trust me when I say it doesn’t come off with any plain ol’ makeup remover. Moral of this long review is to never give up on this product if it’s not working for you. Challenge yourself to perfect your liner look and I promise you’ll master being an eyeliner pro with this product! RATING: 4 STARS!

Benefit They’re Real Remover
WHAT IS IT? Take it all off with the Benefit They’re Real Remover. It is specially formulated to remove Benefit Cosmetics bestselling They’re Real! Mascara and They’re Real! Push-Up Liner, this creamy gel is gentle-yet-powerful. It completely lifts away waterproof eye makeup without tugging the delicate eye area. (source)
PRICE: $18 USD for (2.2 oz)
REVIEW: This stuff is amazing! I underestimated the staying power of the mascara and liner and this remover is formulated to remove the stubbornness of any long-wearing makeup. I like to take about a pea-size amount onto my fingertips and gently massage the product all over my eyes (and sometimes on my stubborn lip stains). When massaging this They’re Real Remover over the stubborn makeup, it easily melts off the product. Once the makeup has melted away, I like to take a dry tissue or cotton pad and wipe away any excess product! In the photo above you can see this makeup remover working its magic. If you like the Make Up For Ever Sens’Eyes makeup remover, you’re going to love this too! When it comes to removing the products in the “They’re Real” collection, I do recommend using this makeup remover since it was formulated specifically for this line. This product is also a great product to add to your kit, you makeup artists!! RATING: 5 STARS!
