Do you know that Benefit in Singapore is highly overpriced? That is why i never really want to purchase anything from Benefit locally. However, i got the mascara online and it cost me US22 only! I've heard so much rave on how amazing this mascara works and how it became a HG for many youtubers. So i caved in and bought one wanting to try and see if it works on me too. So lets start with the product description shall we?
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!
What else you need to know:
94% saw dramatic length & volume*
90% saw base-to-tip curl*
94% saw visible lift*
100% saw long-wearing results*The wand is unique as it has a wide bristle with shorter bristles at the tip for under eye application. Its like mini combs. That is the unique part of the mascara.
Firstly, I am going to talk about the mascara. There is no strong scent to it. Upon application, it seperates my lashes (As you can see below), and lengthens it. The wand makes applying mascara alot easier as i do not even need to wiggle it in a zig zag motion to coat my lashes with the mascara. It glides easily as i stroke it upwards and the formula stick on my lashes nicely. However when i apply it too near to my lash line, the wand hit and hurts my lash line (skin). It pokes and i felt the pain which makes my eyes shut immediately, in return having all the mascara smudges on my under eye. THAT is to be avoid at all cause. Do not apply it too close to your lash line. (lesson learnt.)
I like the pointy tip which has short bristles as it helps to apply lashes as close to my tear duct. You can see all my lashes were coated with mascara which does not happen that often. The mascara did not help me in curling my lashes as you can see. Its almost straight.
You can see here too. Minimal curl but it does lengthens and do not clump at all.
I may have owned the best mascaras in Asia, the Dollywink Mascara, Maybelline Falsies Mascara and Loreal 4D Architect Mascara. These mascaras hands down, works the same or even better than the Benefit They're Real. They provide length, volume(which i never mentioned on they're real) and curl. They are also much cheaper compared to SG Benefit mascara which is sold at $48 each. I just dont see the hype in this mascara. I can say Dollywink mascara is 10 times better and that is definitely my HG. But the sucky thing to it is that it bleeds. Benefit They're real mascara does not at all. At such a high price, i don't recommend my readers to buy as it might perform slightly above average for you.
I wont repurchase.
