They\'re Real : Okay, I finally get what the fuss is all about…!

Rendez-vous sur Hellocoton !

I really dislike buying expensive makeup and I think that\’s understandable given how many makeup products I have in my small apartment. I love colors, I love textures but I like to be pragmatic when it comes to buying makeup – I look for quality and then for the lowest price. A Better than Sex or They\’re Real mascara ? Um, no, not for me. I may have never had the chance to try Benefit\’s They\’re Real mascara if it were not for the parcel my friend Sam of the YouTube channel Shaniya Sam sent me.
And yet, after using it for a few months, I can say with confidence and much satisfaction why it\’s rated so well.

I like the silvery mirror packaging, the sober yet colorful printings and the slightly unusual shape of the mascara. I\’m not a big fan of overthought packagings because the product is actually more important to me. It\’s great to be able to look at a beautiful product but most of the time it\’s just a means of making more money for the brand and I just hate that (I\’m pretty sure no one likes paying more money for anything anyway).
I was impressed the first time I saw the brush : dozens of tiny spikes and a round head for the smallest eyelashes. I\’ve come to really like this kind of brush because the spikes really come in handy when it comes to separating and covering the lashes well with the mascara. By the way, this one is ultra black… Usually, you can\’t really tell if I\’ve got mascara on or not with my other mascaras, whether they\’re branded or not. But this one… this one wants to be seen – from afar !

Not only does it separate my lashes neatly, it also curls them in a way I\’d never seen any mascara do it to my lashes – I just need to pay attention and not want too much out of the mascara : the best is the enemy of good and pretty soon my lashes get thick with mascara and the result is not pretty anymore. This They\’re Real mascara dries really quickly and it\’s pretty hard to remove if not with an oily makeup remover or with oil which is what I usually use to remove my makeup.
So okay, I might not like spending more than €20 for makeup but instead of buying many mascaras to find the Grail, I can rest assured now I know this Benefit gem will do a perfect job. Have you ever tried this mascara ? Have you found other mascaras which are perfect for your eyelashes when it comes to curling, color and volume ?
