As promised, the next edition of Keeping a Classy Face is all about mascara. As a Sephora VIB I get über samples through promotions and codes, many of which are deluxe mascara tubes. In fact, this is how I found my new favorite brand, Benefit’s They’re Real!
Name: They’re Real!
Cost: $23 for 0.3 oz
The website says:
WHAT IT IS:
A jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out-to-here” look.
WHAT IT DOES:
This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had! The specially designed brush features staggered bristles that grab close to the root, boosting length and volume beyond belief. The custom-domed tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you’ll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won’t smudge, clump, or dry out. True story!
WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Go horizontal! The staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume. Then go vertical! The custom-domed tip with precision bristles lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes.
In a consumer panel survey, the following results were reported:
– 94% saw dramatic length and volume
– 90% saw base-to-tip curl
– 94% saw visible lift
-100% saw long-wearing results
I have been using mascara for close to 20 years. Of course I started out using the drugstore brands – Maybelline, Cover Girl, and so on. Even the most expensive drugstore brand was no match for this tube. I absolutely love how it made my lashes look: long, full, and curled without adding a ton of gloppy gunk. My eyelashes look natural. Now I can tell they are lengthened because, sometimes, my lashes will graze the lenses of my sunglasses! Now isn’t that a great feeling? The only negative is how difficult it is to remove. I have to use my cotton balled eye makeup remover twice to really get this off my lashes. But, in my opinion, it’s worth it.
