Benefit Cosmetics / They’re Real Tease: Mascara & Mini Liner

OVER HYPED: Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit are no stranger to creating hype around their products, but unfortunately more often than not the hype is not true to the quality of the products themselves (a la la They’re Real Liner) I had really high hopes for this mascara especially since They’re Real Mascara is my all-time favourite. This mascara was by no means bad or the worst I’ve tried, but it was still notoriously over hyped. The mascara has a small, curved plastic wand which Benefit calls a “hook and roll” brush which “grabs, separates, lifts and curls” I didn’t really think the wand was anything special, but it wasn’t awful either. In terms of curling this mascara does a good job and you can definitely get away without using a lash curler. Despite Benefits claims this mascara does not keep lashes curled for 12 hours and I found the curl started to drop after a couple of hours.  If you simply wiggle two coats through the lashes you aren’t going to get long lashes or good definition. For good results you need to wiggle the mascara through the lashes and then twist the wand upwards towards the tips, this works but your lashes may start to look a little clumpy and you often end up with mascara on your eyelids (see results here) Many people had issues with Benefit They’re being difficult to remove, I can report that this one is easy to remove with makeup remover and doesn’t flake or smudge in the middle of the day.  All in all I think this mascara is okay, it is better than some others I’ve tried, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s the best. I know many people love it, but I find I just have to spend too much time applying it in order to get nice big lashes.
