Hello there! How’s everyone doing this week? If you’re on spring break, I hope you’re having a fun time before going back to school! I have been trying to make the most out of the two weeks of break I got to hang out with my friends and last week my family and I got on a plane and went to Orlando, Florida to visit the Magic Kingdom and explore the city for a couple days! It was so much fun but I am back. While in Florida, I finally gave in and got Too Faced’s Chocolate Palette as well as ABH’s Contour Palette and oh my gosh, I’m in love. (Definitely expect a lil review/haul soon as well!)
Anyway, as promised, I am back with a review on Benefit’s newest mascara – the Real Lash! On Benefit’s website, this mascara claims to “separate, lift and curl while also lasting for 12 hours.”
In three words: This. freakin’. works.
I have been testing this product for about a month and I can proudly say that this has quickly climbed it’s way up through the charts to officially become my favorite mascara. If you follow me on twitter then you have probably been present in one of my rants about how it’s so hard to work makeup on droopy eyes but this little bottle of black ink glory lifts my lashes in a way that makes my eyes look rounder, bigger and definitely flirty. Another thing that I also enjoy about this product is that you can definitely build your way up through the coats without it looking too clumpy or spidery. I have been trying to stay away from fake eyelashes and this has made the whole thing a tad less painful.
Although I just mentioned you can get away with a couple coats without it getting too clumpy, once it does get too much, this mascara will not do the trick of separating your lashes. It isn’t that much of a big deal for me though!
Now, does it last 12 hours? Heck yes. As I mentioned in the introduction of this post, I visited WDW’s Magic Kingdom last week and this was my weapon of choice for my lashes. Lemme tell ya somethin’ girl, this thing kept my lashes curly and flirty looking from 6 am until closing time at 1 am. So yes, this thing will stay on and it will not make you look like a raccoon.
So my final opinion on the product.
I fell in love with this mascara and I do believe it is worth every cent. Apart from the small detail that I did not notice any difference when it comes to separating my lashes, this product gives my eyes that final BOOM factor to make me look great for the day.
