Benefit: They're Real!


Mascara - Benefit 'They're Real!' 
Liquid Liner - Soap & Glory 'Supercat'
Eye Shadow - Urban Decay Naked Palette 'Virgin' and 'Naked' on upper and 'Half Baked' on lower


There are a lot of Benefit products that i could rave all day about, but this rubber wanded mascara is my daily essential in terms of makeup routine. I've been using this since December and there isn't any other mascara i've ever tried that has had the same lasting effect throughout the day. When wearing this out yesterday for what started off as a lunch and shopping trip, but inevitably thanks to the weather turned into all day beers followed by a barbecue and a few glasses of vino, my mascara stayed curled and defined. Funnily enough, a friend asked me 'are you wearing fake lashes' and i was like 'no, they're real!' literally. While i'm a strong believer in fake lashes being the one and only answer to full, curled and thick lashes, without clumps or bumps this product makes a pretty good attempt and i would definitely recommend it. At £18.50 it's a little pricey if you're used to high street mascara purchases, but for the long-lasting effect on your lashes as well as the length of time the actual tube lasts, i would have to argue that it's worth the high end price tag! Please excuse the picture i know i look a little on the googie/lopsided side? Not quite sure what's going on there! (Top photo from google images as my container was a little too worn!)

  26. I've had this since December too and haven't stopped wearing it! It's so expensive but I got it as a Christmas gift and I was very lucky. I've had people say "Your eyelashes are unreal" which made me laugh because it's called "They're real!" :)Best mascara ever :)
