I found myself at a Benefit counter last week and the SA talked me into trying They're Real - the new mascara meant to make your lashes look like falsies. I was skeptical, especially with it being a plastic wand, but the results are great.
Now let me apologise for these ropey photos. They're Real was applied over what I was already wearing - Max Factor False Lash Effect Length & Volume. I took the photos about eight hours after the mascara was initially applied and for some reason the exposure setting was waaay down on my camera so I've had to autocorrect, but you can still see the effect. And I think my lashes would have looked much better if I just had a couple of coats of They're Real on. It is a very luxurious formula - not too dry, or wet, just Goldilocks and is the blackest black.
My lashes on the right (so the ones on your left) look better because I applied it to this eye myself after the SA poked me in my other eyeball. It hurt like a mofo and felt infected for almost two days. So word to the wise - always apply your own mascara. I don't know what came over me really, it's a bit gross to try a tester mascara (used a disposable wand, but still, it's yuck) - see what I go through for you?!
The tube is really pretty and I do actually see myself buying this in the future when I've got through my 30+ other mascaras. It's £18.50, which is steep, but still more economical than my two current faves, Lancome Hypnose and MUFE Smokey Lash. In the US it's $22.50, which given an approx. exchange rate of $1.5 to £1, should mean we pay £15 over here, but it never works like that!
Have you tried They're Real? Are you going to?
