Product Props: Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara
I am Maybelline Falsies girl through and through. I’m all about playing my lashes up and even on a day when I skip the rest of my makeup, I’ll at least add some curl to them. The right mascara can be thickening, lengthening and will really open up your eyes and open up the rest of your face by extension. For me, Falsies is tried and true and will always be a staple in my collection.
Ever eager to open my horizons, though, and perhaps find a new favorite, I decided to try Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara. And after hearing all the hype, I was not disappointed. Lengthening, darkening and perhaps a little bit thickening- there’s a reason it’s a bestseller. The best part about this mascara, aside from the expert formulation, is the wand. It’s everything mascara wand-like but with an added ball of bristles at the end making it perfect for the sometimes hard to reach corners of your eyes. (It’s basically the Swiffer of mascara wands)
By rotating the wand and using only the added bristles on the end, you find yourself with a lower lashes wand, perfect for not smudging a lot of mascara underneath your eyes and still achieving a little extra definition.
Sounds good, right? A little on the pricier side when you’re a Drugstore makeup junkie like me, but definitely worth the splurge.
