I didn’t love this mascara it left fallout under my eyes and was hard to take off
  1. Great!


    Easy to apply and I always get so many compliments on how long my lashes look!
  2. Stays on all day


    verified purchaser
    I love this mascara. It is lengthening and light. Also stays on all day. Would repurchase.
  3. Lashes On Point!


    I wanted to hate this product SO BAD. I wanted to believe it was more of the hype than the product that was bringing in so many great reviews. Now that I have actually gone through a couple weeks trying this mascara, I can finally deliver my verdict. The wand itself is what I would describe as "spiky". It separates the lashes tremendously, which I think contributes to the natural look, because the...

  4. My favourite mascara ever!


    verified purchaser
    I keep coming back to this mascara and re-purchasing it. It’s definitely not a natural looking mascara but it’s so great on my long lashes and is so black, voluminous and dramatic. and doesn’t budge until you remove it. I get asked all the time whether I have eyelash extensions but it’s just this mascara. Highly recommend
  5. I always get asked if they’re faux!


    verified purchaser
    This has been my go to mascara for YEARS and for good reason. It’s a buildable mascara and I always get compliments and get asked if my lashes are fake when I wear it. It’s not waterproof but I find it stays out well, while also pretty easy to remove. The brush being rubber(?) can be a little to get used to and tough at first but stick with it because it’s worth it. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras in...

  6. Mixed feelings


    Super thick and heavy, hard to take off. But i guess that means its voluminous amd waterproof. Im looking for something more natural and less heavy..
  7. Good mascara


    verified purchaser
    I found this mascara quite good. I normally use a comb brush and decided to try this as the type I use has discontinued. The bristles on the end allow you to pick up those stray lashes that can get left behind. I would recommend this mascara and purchase it again.
  8. lengthening


    this mascara makes my lashes look very long and great. definitely recommend !
  9. amazing


    Benefit is one of my fav brands. Used pretty much all of there products.The unique brush design grabs and grips each of my lashes and get those small lashes, also minimise clumping. My mascara stays in place all day.
  10. Amazing


    This is an amazing mascara. Doesn't clump, stays on an entire day without making my lashes wither when I have been out doors all day and is easy to apply.
  11. My absolute favourite mascara!


    I adore this mascara! It lengthens my not very long lashes and looks amazing. It stays put all day. I have strayed a couple of times and tried other mascaras but always come back to this. I am now on my fourth tube. You will need a very good makeup remover as it is very long-wearing. Cannot recommend this product enough!!
  12. This is my favourite mascara


    This is my favourite mascara, it adds so much length and volume to my lashes. The only downside is that it can be a bit smudgy.
  13. This is my favourite mascara


    This is my favourite mascara, it adds so much length and volume to my lashes. The only downside is that it can be a bit smudgy.
  14. lots of fallout


    there was a lot of fall out from this mascara and it didnt do anything amazing for my eyelashes.
  15. Ineffective


    Really wanted to love it as there was quite some hype when it was first released. Sadly, the formula is wet and heavy, makes my curled lashes go straight again. Not made for people with straighter lashes, quite disappointing. Much prefer L’Oréal’s mascaras that work better for a lower price too.
  16. Best mascara


    I keep coming back to this mascara. As a mature woman I want a mascara that is easy to apply, has a great brush and stays in place all day and night. It never needs a touchup. If you want a mascara that is truly waterproof this is the one.
  17. Best mascara


    This mascara adds so much thickness to my lashes without making them clumpy! Only 2 coats make my lashes look incredible
  18. Average


    I'm sad that I didn't love this product like I thought I would. For me it didn't live up to the hype and was just your average mascara. Did the job but wouldn't repurchase again, there is better out there. I found it dried very fast too.
  19. Lengthening mascara


    This mascara is ok! it did leave a little fallout however it spreads lashes evenly and does add volume!
  20. One of my favourite mascaras


    I like to try different mascaras but this one is one of my favourites.

    It's easy to apply, and looks great once on. Can be applied lightly for a natural look, or built up for an evening look.

    The mascara stays put, but it not horrible to remove.
  21. I Love this Mascara!!


    I just love this mascara...it lives up to its name. It certainly makes your lashes look longer, thicker and darker. It can look like you're wearing falsies if you put on a good amount.

    I recommend this product.
  22. Amazing Mascara for Natural Lashes


    I have really long lashes naturally and a lot of mascaras make my lashes look clumpy. I like mascara to look natural, this is the only mascara I use that doesn't look like there is thick mascara on them.
  23. best mascara


    Benefit has one of the best mascaras. I love all their mascara. I'm crazy about mascara. This one just lengthens and makes them look fuller.
  24. Like it


    I've tried all of the benefit mascara. Mascara is one makeup product I can't live without. This probably in my top 5. IT lengthens and thickens my lashes and it so blacks.
  25. Great mascara


    This mascara makes my lashes longer, is easily buildable, does not clump and the spiky top of the applicator is really good for getting into the inner and outer corners. I have not had any issues with the product transferring.
  26. Yes, they really are real!


    I was after a mascara that would be easy to apply, but with a bold effect - Benefit's They're Real delivers. The brush is fantastic and doesn't ever get clumpy bits, the colour (black) is bold and overall it will give you thick and beautiful lashes. The packaging is cute, like all Benefit products, and the tube is solid and looks like new until you finish with it. Highly recommended!
  27. amazing mascara


    This stuff is the bomb. It works as the way it claims. Makes my lashes longer and they stay on all day.
  28. Overpriced mascara


    This mascara does hold your lashes up, but it is extremely hard to remove. It is a bit overpriced for mascara but works well
  29. Holy grail mascara


    This mascara really does what it’s known for, and that’s lengthening. It separate my lashes and really makes them look false. I love it.
  30. There are real


    Received this from adore goodie bag. So black and real effect on eyes!
  31. Holy Grail Mascara


    This is definitely one of my favourite mascaras, I always make sure I have it in my makeup collection. Whenever I use this mascara I always get complements on my lashes! I find that I do wipe down the brush a bit before applying it so it doesn't get too clumpy on my lashes. Have gotten so many friends hooked onto this mascara.
  32. Not worth it


    Unfortunately, this mascara just was not for me. I find it clumpy, causing my eyelashes to stick together. It gives great length, but the thickness is just too much. For the price there are far better options.
  33. Will always come back for more!


    I am a makeup addict. I currently have five tubes of mascara...the first step is admitting I have a problem! This mascara is amazing and my lashes aren't that long but I get compliments often on how great my lashes look when I use this. I love it and will continue to buy it!!
  34. Love the brush


    Love this mascara, coats lashes so evenly and doesn’t run throughout the day
  35. Fave


    This is one of my favourite mascaras. Its not only lengthening but also super volumising and really helps to hold a curl in my usually straight flat lashes. Doesnt crumble and looks amazing all night
  36. Ok


    The wand on this mascara is great and the mascara goes on nicely (not at all lumpy) BUT there is fallout. Nice mascara but the pice makes it not worth it
  37. Good but not special


    It's a nice mascara but I think it's overpriced for what it does.
  38. Good mascara


    This mascara is so good! makes my lashes look so long and thick and doesn't get clumpy at all
  39. opppps a miss


    I dont have much eyelashes to start off with, so maybe that's why I didn’t love this mascara it left fallout under my eyes and was hard to take off
  40. Favourite for separating


    I like to use this with a thickening mascara.

    But when I run out, I actually cleaned and kept the brush because it’s so good for separating.

    I don’t feel mascaras should be so expensive but this is one I’m willing to buy and am so glad it comes as a travel size.
  41. False lash effect but hard to take off


    I love how this gives my tiny lashes a huge boost and makes them look long and lush but I find it kind of hard to remove and takes a while compared to other mascaras
  42. Love the brush


    I've been wearing this mascara for years now. I will sometimes try a new one but ultimately come back to this one. I find, unlike most others, it stays on my lashes and not on my under eye. The shape of the bristles on the brush means more lashes get coated first time and bristled tip of the brush makes coating the little lashes at the end a breeze. I highly recommend!
  43. Fallout & Clumpy


    Wasn't a big fan of this mascara at all, especially after all the hype (first tried a couple of years ago now). I found it very clumpy and spidery with fallout through the day. Polar opposite to the AMAZING benefit mascara Badgal Bang
  44. perfect if you have lash extensions


    this mascara doesn't contain oil which you're supposed to avoid in mascaras if you have lash extensions. I searched for a long time to find an oil-free mascara that isn't water proof and actually stays put without smudging as all of the others I've tried (oil-free) do within a couple of hours. I only need one coat and they look great.
  45. Nice and natural


    I love this one (not as much as high roller) but it does lengthen and isn't clumpy!
  46. Adds length


    Adds serious length to my lashes and doesn’t clump up
  47. Liked but didn't love


    This product did make my lashes look longer, but it wasn't a 'real' look. Definitely too heavy for my liking.
  48. Mascara


    I didn’t love this mascara it left fallout under my eyes and was hard to take off
  49. Fantastic


    If you’re here looking for the best mascara ever- look no further. My lashes are long without the clump. I was a bit sceptical because of the price point but this is well and truly the holy grail of mascaras.
  50. Voluminous


    Adds lots of volume and depth to your lashes. Love the brush particularly. Can melt under the eyes and also can become clumpy quickly, not a very long life
  51. Repeat buys


    Used this mascara for years now, very buildable, makes my lashes sooo long, gone through Atleast 7 of these ! Recommend to anyone and everyone
  52. The best I’ve been able to find


    Great lengthener. Minimal smudging. I’ve tried lots of mascaras, and this best I’ve found so far.
  53. Does what it says!


    I’ve used high end mascaras from YSL - Too Faced to Max Factor - Essence. This is the best mascara, it’s my holy grail now. Highly recommend. I definitely find I’m getting compliments on how big my lashes are.
  54. Great everyday mascara


    I use only a little of this mascara everyday and I find that its great, very long wearing (although also can be difficult to remove fully). Maybe I rush to apply though because I do find it clumps a little.
  55. melts


    Looks good, volumizing but it melts under my eyes (although a lot of mascaras melts on me)
  56. Hello lashes


    Pretty amazing! Gives super long and thick black lashes and I have used it for years until recently discovering Lancome Monsieur Big which I now prefer as it isn't as clumpy.
  57. LOVE


    I initially purchased the small size mascara and loved it and went on to purchase a full size recently. I like that you can apply very little and have beautiful, soft, natural defined lashes, or you can go a bit heavier and have dramatic long dark thick lashes. 100% worth trying something new!
  58. Works well


    I love a lash primer and have tried many brands and they all work much the same no matter how much you spend. This is expensive but I like the fact that it’s not white and it does separate the lashes very nicely
  59. Best mascara


    I have strayed from using this from time to time to try other brands and I always come back to this. It lengthens my lashes and I have actually been asked if I have extensions in when I wear it! I do need to use an oil-based makeup remover because it is long-wearing, but that's another reason why I love it so much!
  60. Best mascara!


    There isn’t anything I don’t love about this mascara! Not clumpy at all, great brush with the tip ends, and reapplying definitely lengthens and thickens
  61. Love this mascara!


    This mascara is amazing. The brush does a great job of separating your lashes and the mascara seems to coat and lengthen each lash. No clumps at all. It stays on all day as well.
  62. Highly recommend


    This is a great mascara.
    It's inky black, it doesn't move and it stays on all day.
    I do recommend the They're Real remover to get it off otherwise it will take some rubbing to remove.

    I recommend this to all my friends.
  63. Great length


    This gives my lashes good length can clump up easy on third coat so be careful
  64. I love this mascara


    Amazing lengthening results! Fantastic mascara and I use it all the time as it’s one my favourites.
  65. Expensive but worth it!


    Really gives the length, goes on smooth, doesn’t flake or smudge!
  66. Lengthening!


    My lashes are short but this mascara is really the only mascara that lengthens them!
  67. One of my favourites!


    I received this as a sample and it’s amazing!
  68. Good at lengthening


    I found this mascara really good at lengthening my lashes but not so much giving them thickness. It made my lashes look like soft feathers. Beautiful for day time. Doesn’t build very well so have to keep it at one coat
  69. Lengthing and defining


    Makes my lashes look longer and fuller. Doesn’t clump and doesn’t dry like a dry, thick paste like a lot of other mascaras do!
  70. It's like I'm wearing falsies!


    After being a devotee of another brand for many years, I received this as a sample from AB and after my first wear I knew I had to buy. The brush is one of the best I've used and, as a mature woman with fine lashes, it somehow magically makes me look I'm wearing falsies! I definitely recommend this product.
  71. A beautiful lengthening mascara!


    This mascara does exactly what it claims! It lengthens your lashes and does not transfer onto your eyelids. I love the packaging and the wand is very easy to use and apply. The coating is the perfect amount of product and it does not clump or ball onto the lashes.
  72. Love Love Love


    I received a sample of this and all I can say is love, love, love this product!!
    It gives you long separated lashes and is so easy to build up if you like a heavier mascara look.
  73. Lengthening


    Definitely lengthens lashes, liked this product but found it a little clumpy at times, got this as a freebie. My teenage daughters loved it as she has short eyelashes and she thinks it is great
  74. MVP


    This is the mascara I judge all mascaras on, the best and the original
  75. I am in love with this mascara ❤️


    This is the best mascara I have ever used in my life. It really lengthens and thickens my lashes without all the terrible clumping. This product does exactly what its meant to. Highly recommend this product to all !
  76. My go-to mascara


    I’ve been using Benefit They’re Real mascara for a couple of years now and I love it! It’s my go-to mascara, I love the brush and I definitely think it lengthens and highlights my lashes. It does clump if you put it on to thick though - so if you keep this in mind when applying, you’ll be fine.
  77. High expectations weren’t met


    I really wanted to like this after it’s cult status but I can’t say it’s a favourite for me. The brush is good but I get clumps when I go thick. At the end of my day I have smudging underneath my bottom eyelashes even when I only wear it on the top.
  78. My New Fav


    This is an amazing mascara and makes your lashes look so naturally long but it does take a bit of effort to come off at the end of the night.
  79. Great Mascara But Hard To Get Off!


    I received a sample of Benefit They're Real Mascara from Adore Beauty (thank you!), and it's a great little work horse! Easy to apply and instant lashes, this product has only one downfall - it's such a mess to get off! It's OK if you use a dedicated eye make up remover, but if you don't tend to use those products, then expect panda eyes after using a regular cleanser. Apart from that - the mascar...

  80. Stays all day!


    I have ordered this mascara back to back for years. It's a little difficult to use the first few uses as it is a little too 'wet', but then after the first week, it gets easier and easier to apply. It never dries out, it never clumps. It lasts all day without giving me 'panda eyes', or without having chunks fall onto my face. I have quite oily eyelids, but once it's set - it's set. I remove using ...

  81. My favourite


    I've been in love with this mascara for years. Makes my lashes look thicker and i've never had a trouble with clumping.
  82. all time favourite


    I've tried a lot of mascaras and this is the best and the one i always come back too adds volume and length to lashes while keeping them separate and no clumping
  83. Awesome


    i have short as lashes, i considered getting extensions until i found this product which does the job for a quater of the price, great wet formula that doesnt dry out, highly recommend
  84. Awesome


    i have rather short lashes and this really curls them up while lengthning them. it doesnt clump my lashes and is a nice consistency
  85. Love it so much


    This mascara makes my lashes so long and black! It doesn’t clump at all and looks absolutely amazing
  86. Best I’ve found


    I had been loyal to a particular brand for about a decade before finding this Benefit mascara - and now I’m 100% converted. Amazing length and separation without clumping. Easy to use the brush on both upper and lower lashes. I make sure the brush hasn’t got much mascara left on it when coating my lower lashes otherwise they look too long!! Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
  87. Great Mascara!


    Definitely made my lashes look longer and fuller, though I find it is difficult to remove... it is definitely long lasting though ! :)
  88. Favourite mascara


    Best mascara out for adding volume and length with no clumping or fibres that get in your eyes. It’s been my staple mascara for years now and any time I have branched out and tried a new mascara I’ve always come back to this as nothing has compared yet.
  89. Love Love Love


    I love this Mascara, Lengthening and thickening. Since first using this I have not bought any other Mascara - complete convert.
  90. Amazing length, no clumpy bits


    This is my favourite mascara, it really does make you look like you're wearing false lashes! It lengthens without giving you that thick and chunky 'spiders legs' effect! For an extra neat effect I go over it with a clean mascara wand before it drys and separate the lashes and smooth out the mascara. But the wand it comes with does a great job on its own too.
  91. Best mascara!


    Love, love, love this mascara! I have repurchased many times and will never use anything else. I use this product everyday. You can build up this mascara, depending if you want a more natural or dramatic look. It holds the lashes all day and never flakes off. Just make sure you have good eye makeup remover to remove it.
  92. Definitely lengthens


    This is an amazing mascara and makes your lashes look so naturally long but it does take a bit of effort to come off at the end of the night.
  93. The Best


    I got a sample of this with an order and I can't even begin to explain how amazing this mascara is, I have it in brown and black and I often receive compliments on it, I even get asked if I have eyelash extensions. It's the best mascara I have ever used and love it.
  94. excellent


    love this so much!!! makes my lashes so long and curled, don't even need to use a eyelash curler! so nice and light on my lashes and gives them a full volume effect!
  95. Love this!!


    I’ve been using this mascara for over a year now! The brush is thin which I find helpful with application and it really costs and separates every lash. My lashes have never looked longer!
  96. hard to remove


    i like the look it gives, but it is hard to remove at the end of the day
  97. Smudging


    Got epic smudging, and had to use powerful makeup remover to get it all off from under my eyes. Bad gal is better.
  98. Great Mascara


    This was the very first Benefit Mascara I tried and I was not disappointed! That was a while ago now but from time to time I come back to it. It's extremely long wearing so make sure you invest in a great makeup remover or you may have panda eyes the next morning!
  99. Excellent lengthening look


    I do love the length that this mascara adds, its really excellent for making the lashes look so long and defined. The only thing is for the first few uses I almost find this product a bit too wet and can smudge easily when applying. Wouldn't recommend if you're looking to add volume, as this really separates the lashes rather than added fullness.
