    Totally worth it !

    This is the best mascara I have ever used ! It gave my eyelashes amazing length and volume. The price point is a bit on the higher side but it's a nice quality product that gets great results. I got mine as a sample from the brand.

    Doesn't live up to the hype

    I purchased this mascara during the Sephora VIB sale. For one, I don't like the brush. I'm not a fan of plastic brushes in general. The bristles are also very pointy and small, which is great for separation but kind of hurts my water line if I'm not careful in application and end up poking that area. I do very much enjoy that the brush has bristles along the tip of the brush. It makes it very easy to reach the inner corner and bottom lashes.

    This product is marketed to lengthen, volumize, and curl. While it definitely does lengthen and makes my lashes very black, it doesn't hold up the curl. My lashes naturally point staight out so curl is very important. This mascara also has a slick finish. I prefer mascaras that give a feathery full finish. Luckily this product did not smear under the eyes whatsoever but it also makes it a little difficult to remove at the end of the day.

    Overall I did not like the application or overall effect of this mascara and therefore do not recommend it.

    Smooth lashes

    This was recommended by an instagrammer I follow. I like this mascara but not sure I will buy it again over drugstore brands. It has dried out sooner than I would like - in about 3 months

    Love it

    I was given a sample of Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Lengthening Mascara and I absolutely love it. It adds length to my eyelashes that it turns out beautiful and easily glide. In not really a pro in doing my makeup but benefits make it easy for me.

    Probably good for people with naturally nice eyelashes

    I have sparse, short, and thin asian eyelashes. What I was looking for was a mascara that would lengthen my lashes, and give them some volume. So when I asked my friend what mascaras she recommended she told me this one. I had high hopes, I mean it was 33 CAD. My hopes were soon shattered though. My eyelashes barely changed, I guess the reason why it looked so good on my friend was because she already had long eyelashes. On the plus side it lasted all day with minimum flaking, and it lasted through a good workout session. So overall if you already have nice eyelashes I would definitely say to try out this mascara, but to all my fellow short lashed people I would suggest to keep looking.

    Not bad

    I absolutely love the brush on this mascara. I have bought it a couple of times. Both times the same thing. It's VERY hard to get off! I'm tugging and trying to get it off. I wouldn't recommend this for the simple fact it's terrible to remove. If it was easier to get off, I would give it 5 stars and buy it again. I feel almost like you can never get it off completely.

    A bit to dry and claggy

    I didn't really like this mascara it went on a bit to thick and claggy making my eyelashes clump.

    I have quite naturally curly eyelashes but it made them clump together which lost length

    Length but to much clump for me

    When it comes to mascara I am
    Super picky, I want length and darkening but no clumps or thickness, almost like a dye to my natural lashes. I often wash the wand half off and use as a tint. If thickness is alright it’s an alright mascara definitely adds length

    Good quality. Needs a few applications.

    I like my lashes long and thick and this mascara needed a few applications to achieve that look. I like the look with a primer underneath. It is a nice quality. Not sure on the price as I received it as a gift.

    Lashes

    Only mascara I will use makes me lashes look longer,and I wear glasses so that's a plus that you can actually see my lashes now. and it lasts a very long time.
