Beauty Secret: Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Some women really have fun with over-the-top lashes, but most of us simply want longer, lusher fringe. We’ve tried all kinds of mascaras — the ones that claim to thicken, the ones that claim to lengthen, the ones that have multiple applicators — and we’re here to report that Benefit They’re Real mascara delivers.

The wand’s bristles separate lashes and disperse color uniformly, defining each eyelash for a more natural appearance. Clumping didn’t occur, even with multiple coats, but thickening and lengthening did.

The mascara wand is rather large, making maneuvering it among the tiny lashes near the corners of the eyes somewhat difficult. It’s recommended that you hold the wand vertically and paint those lashes with the domed tip of the wand — but it can be hard to control the amount of mascara deposited with this trick, so use a light hand. What that larger wand does allow: Gently press up against your lashes at the root, hold for a beat, and release, which creates a more lifted lash line (our trick, not the manufacturer’s).

Benefit’s award-winning They’re Real mascara comes in three colors: Beyond Brown, Beyond Blue, and Black.

Available at benefitcosmetics.com, $24.
