I just cannot do without a mascara. I have very fine eyelashes and so a mascara is a must for me. Most of the mascaras which I've used weren't satisfactory. Some used to smudge and also end up clumping my lashes. After I used Benefit They're Real Mascara, I now know what exactly I need or should look for in a mascara.
My experience with the product:
The mascara I'm reviewing here is a sample sized product (3 g). This mascara has a nice applicator which enables you to apply the mascara nicely onto your eyelashes. It has a creamy formula and dries up quickly upon application. Just one coat of this mascara makes my eyelashes long and thick. You can apply two coats for a more dramatic look. I like the way this mascara separates the lashes and keep them curled throughout the day. Yes! it stays put all day long. It does not smudge at all. Even if I sweat I do not see the mascara running down as was the case with other mascaras. This mascara however is very difficult to remove at the end of the day. I use an oil based eye make up remover to take it off. I like everything about this mascara. No complaints at all.
The sad part is that Benefit cosmetics are not available here in India. Since this mascara is so good I don't think I'll like any of the drug store mascaras available here. I can't thank my cousin enough for getting me this one. I won't be using this mascara on a daily basis. I'm saving it for special occasions only.
