To celebrate the 2nd birthday of Benefit They’re Real, the UKs number one selling mascara, Benefit are giving us a double whammy birthday present. The special edition Double They’re Real contains a full size mascara and a mini mascara worth £9.50 for the price of £19.50!
For those of you who haven’t tried this mascara before….Err where have you been?? This fab mascara gives jet black dramatic lashes, with a full lift and curl. The specially designed brush catches those lashes that I’m sure you didn’t know were there and the rounded tip is perfect for catching those lower lashes.
Using the wand apply from the base of your lashes and using a zig zag motion, wiggle the mascara through your lashes. It’s the mascara that’s placed at the base of your lashes that gives the impression of a longer length, so flicking the wand at the tip of your lashes just won’t do. The wiggle motion also separates and lengthens. If you do this, there is no need to coat the top of your lashes. I personally find that this shortens and clumps your lashes, damaging the good work you’ve already done. If you find that you always get mascara on your eyelids when applying, try holding the end of a make up brush behind your top lashes as you apply, the handle will catch any mistakes. You can tidy up any mess using a damp cotton bud too.
I can’t tell you how many of these mascaras I’ve used since Theyre Real was launched. It’s definitely a make up bag staple for me, and the mini They’re Real will sit nicely in work cosmetic bag.
