They're real! I swear!

Ladies and gentleman, my name is Mariam, and I am a mascara whore. I switch up my mascara like I have 10 sets of eyes that all have different needs! What can I say, I'm a sucker for marketing!

The newest mascara from Benefit pulled me right in with the catchy name "They're Real!" and promises of long, voluminous, separated lashes that stay curled.

"This mascara features an exclusive brush specially designed to maximize the performance of the long-wearing glossy formula, revealing lashes you never knew you had! Staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The precision bristles on the custom-domed tip lift, define, and curl, even your tiniest lashes. The end result is luxurious, silky lashes that won't smudge, clump, or dry you out. " (taken from

The spiky bristles at the end of the brush are so great for getting those tiny lashes at the end of your eyes. Its what sold me on this mascara because I haven't been able to properly curl those lashes and add mascara to them my whole life!

 The formula of the mascara was neither thick nor thin, and the brush grabbed onto my lashes extremely well which resulted in minimal clumps with 2 coats. My lashes stayed curled all day long, even through a major sweat session at the gym! There was also no fallout under my eyes the whole time I wore it (around 8-9 hours).

I definitely noticed added length to my lashes, but the volume left something to be desired. Maybe if I combined this with my Clump Crusher, I would have the ultimate combo! That is, until a new mascara hits the market!
