    I generally love Benefit cosmetics so I was super disappointed when this product didn't work out for me. It made my lashes spidery. Super hard to apply to make it look good, don't know if it was the brush or the formula but it just didn't do it for me.

    I really hate this mascara, I found it made my lashes look clumpy and spider like. The Formula is average at best and the brush just was a pain and really difficult to work with. I had to give this mascara away to friend because I hated it so much. I wish it had worked well on my lashes, but it was just a GIGANTIC disappointment.

    I was not a big fan of this mascara. I got it in a sample size to try from Sephora as part of their birthday gift and I honestly hated it. I felt that the formula was too heavy and it weighed my eyelashes down a lot; I constantly had to curl them with my eyelash curler.

    I don't understand how so many people are hooked on this mascara... It is terrible! Ends up making my lashes quite clumpy and sticky, even after carefully coating them lightly. The mascara is not very buildable. Taking it off is also a disaster - I feel like the formula has to be improved. It is quite disappointing because it is a pricey product. Avoid at all costs!

    I hate this mascara. The formula is bad enough. It doesn't last and the slightest tearing up or rubbing of the eyes makes it run. The applicator wand is a HAZARD! Please apply slooooowly and carefully because those little stickers at the end of the wand are going to poke the crap out of your eye like they have mine on many occasions. Mascara is already torture enough without adding weapons to my applicator.

    i used all my points to get this as a sample from sephora. im SO GLAD i didnt waste the money to buy this. the wand was descent enough loved the spikes on the end to get the small lashes. what i wasnt impressed with was the mascara it's self.it was like glue. all my lashes stuck together. and was a mess to get off even with the remover. i ended up losing lashes from scrubbing and trying to unclump my lashes. definitely never buying this. though i did keep the wand and use it with my go to rimmle mascara.

    I have very small, sparse lashes. I found that if you're lashes aren't a little full to begin with, it won't do a think. My lashes did not grip thr formula well and It did almost nothing. Make sure you have something to work with when you get this mascara!

    Let's start with the mascara shall we. The claim on this product is that it, "lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for an 'out-of-here' look- now." While I agree the want is perfect for separating your lashes and it indeed gives them a nice curl without an eyelash curler, I would not say it gives you any wow factor. What I like about it is that it is very natural. It does not clump, it actually doesn't even look like you are wearing mascara, it doesn't harden your lashes and does not flake off which is awesome. It only slightly lengthens your mascara, all of this makes me realize the title is accurate; They're real. It gives you darker, natural looking lashes with a slight curl but no va va voom.
    I am not saying the mascara is horrid, but for the price it is not worth it in my opinion. If you do want to try a Benefit mascara I reccomend their Roller Lash one.

    I do not like this mascara at all. I found it to be very clumpy and didn't give any length or volume to my lashes. For the price, there are so many drugstore based mascaras that work leaps and bounds over this one.

    Definitely, I do not recommend.

    I found this mascara became clumpy overtime and I didn't like the feeling of it on my lashes. I would never purchase this again.
