For me, mascara is the most important make-up item. It is extremely extremely rare that you will ever see me without any mascara on whatsoever, however I'm more than happy to leave my flat, nip to the shops, or even go into university with no foundation on! I'm quite lucky in that I have always had good skin, so covering up blemishes has never really been an issue for me. Despite this, I am a strong believer that if you can draw attention to your best feature, no body will even notice the flaws you spend hours scrutinising yourself over in the mirror each morning!
For me, that feature is my eyes. It's crazy how much more confident I will feel with even the tiniest bit of mascara on, which is why Benefit's "they're real" mascara is absolutely perfect for the job, because a little bit really does go a long way! As we have all established (more than once), I am a HUGE benefit make-up fan, but out of all of their products that I own, this is definitely in the top two! There's nothing I love more than having long, dark, thick eyelashes that really highlight and frame your eyes, and this mascara provides all of these things... Personally, this is the first mascara which I have used alone, as previously I would layer up different brands, each promising to fulfil a separate task, whether it be length or thickness, but not one mascara could provide the full package for me. And then I found "they're real" and quite literally died and went to eyelash heaven!
Priced at £19.50, it's more expensive than your typical drugstore mascara, but it lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates your eyelashes whilst remaining smudge free! On a day to day basis, one coat of this mascara is enough to really bring out your eyes, and if I'm going out at night time, or want a more glam dressed up look, I will layer up another coat to really make my eyelashes pop.
