Benefit They’re Real Beyond Mascara Review

I am a huge fan of Benefit Mascara so it was no surprise that I loved the Benefit They’re Real Beyond Mascara sample that I got at Ulta.

In January I tested out the Benefit They’re Real Tinted Lash Primer so I’m happy to have the mascara now as well.


What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and this one is really good too. The wand on They’re Real Mascara is a very simple and straight which I tend to prefer. I had good control and the mascara was easy to apply. This one did not curl my lashes as much as the Roller Lash but it’s a great everyday choice for me.

The They’re Real Beyond Mascara comes in Jet Black (I have this one), Beyond Brown and Beyond Blue.

I found the formula to be smooth and I had no clumping or flaking. I also got great separation on my bottom lashes too. However the big “wow’ factor for me was that it didn’t smudge. I have a bad habit of blinking after I apply mascara and I usually have to wipe a little blob away under my eye, with They’re Real I didn’t have get any of those black blobs.

I found that it did last all day for me and it was easy to remove. I usually don’t wear mascara more than 8 hours and it did great during that time.

Overall this one is a win for me and I would buy the full-sized product.

Full-Sized Price: $24

    Super helpful! thanks. I have been wondering about this product for a while, and this post is great!

  2. I hated this mascara, I also tried out a sample version. For Christmas I received the full mascara and it was way different!! Maybe the sample was old but it was nothing like the full product. Now I’m obsessed with this mascara. It’s one of my favorites 💙

  3. I wasn’t fond of the mini version

  4. I used to like this mascara but I’ve found others I like more.
