"They're Real" By Benefit - A New Shopaholic Favorite
It's been a while since I blogged about trying a new cosmetic or skin care item, but this one is worth it's own post. A few weeks ago, my BFF Ashleigh was at the beach and had a new mascara she used before we went out to dinner. Of course Ashleigh knows I'm a total product junkie, and offered to let me try her tube. The mascara was "They're Real" by Benefit, which is sold at Sephora, Ulta, and department stores that carry Benefit.
The difference in my lashes with this mascara was ah-maze-ing. I couldn't believe it, and believe me when I say, I have tried all the supposedly "amazing" mascaras on the market. For years, I thought Definicils by Lancome and Diorshow by Dior were the best mascaras. Then I thought Magnascopic by Estee Lauder was the best. Several months ago, I bought MultiplEYE by Tarte and was so impressed I recommended it to all my family and friends. Guess what? "They're Real" by Benefit kicks all of them to the curb.
My eyes are slightly sensitive and I wear contact lenses for the majority of my waking hours every single day. This mascara created dramatic length and volume for my eyes, lasts twelve plus hours in our heat, and didn't "dot" under my eyes. The dotting under eyes is a common problem among contact lens wearers, and I am no exception. When used in conjunction with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler, the results are dramatic.
If you're looking for a new mascara, do not hesitate to try this one! Then you can tell your friends, of course "They're Real"! :-)
Have you also tried a zillion different brands of mascara? What is your favorite?
Here's to a perfect start to the week!
p.s. Now, if I could just get my hands on that Latisse prescription, I'd be in good shape!
