Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip Review

I got a small version of the Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip lipstick in my April Birchbox and I have mixed feeling about this product.

The sample I got in Birchbox was pretty small so I’m wondering if the full-sized version of this product is a bit more substantial. Although the lipstick point looks like it is the same sized as the full-sized version.

The dual lipstick is oval with a darker tip that’s supposed to work as a liner. You can see the darker shade on my hand below. This lip duo comes in 8 combos and I have the Lusty Rose shade which is pretty.

However when I applied Double The Lip I really didn’t see a huge difference in the two shades and it was a little awkward applying it on my bottom lip because you have to flip it over to get the liner on.

The lipstick itself is nice and moisturizing I just can’t get past the wonky application. I would rather just use a  traditional liner.

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.
