A Full Review on Benefit They're Real! Makeup LineTuesday, November 11, 2014
I get a lot of questions from my friends regarding the spaces between the lash lines and their eyeliner. They usually bitch about why they have nasty spaces between those and don't look right when they open their eyes. Well friends, it is what it is: spaces. Ha! No scientific terms for that one or some deeper explanation. Those spaces appear because you don't get to apply between those hairs in your lash lines! I kept my focus on the push-up liner because I think that it is the most "unique" in the line making it the star product from the They're Real! Makeup Line.

It’s the FIRST EVER lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! This matte black gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex™ Tip hugs your lashline from corner to corner. The closer the line, the bigger the eye!

Be careful about twisting some product out of it continuously because you can end up with too much product on the tip. It is very hard to see if you have pushed up enough or too much of the product and there is no way to retract it if a huge chunk suddenly pops out.
I only got a sample size of the They're Real! Mascara but it was more than enough to be used for more than 2 weeks to make a fair review on this product.
According to the Benefit Website:
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

This mascara is not waterproof but it's certainly water resistant. I wore all day in an outdoor event and it survived the humidity, oily and sweaty lids! It does not come off too easily with eye makeup remover though (in spite of me using Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover, but comes off easily with the They're Real! Remover (which is coming up next in this feature).
I received this remover from the Benefit event a couple of months back and I was quite excited to try it! As I have reviewed before, the mascara comes off quite hard so a remover that is designed specifically to remove the mascara and the liner, that would be awesome.
The They're Real! Remover is a cream-based remover that promises to remove waterproof mascara, I am not sure if this works for all brands of waterproof mascara or can only be used with the They're Real! eye product line. It's actually gentle, but really strips off the mascara without shedding a few hairs along the way! It is advised to be squeezed onto a cotton pad or ball and sweep it on your eye area. I however have a different method. I'll show you later.

Make sure that you do not open your eyes while using this product. Although it doesn't sting, it transfers a thin film of oil on your eyes making it really hard to wash off with running water. So your vision might be blurry for a while. So try to keep your eyes shut.
