Hi Again! You guys may have seen that came out with some new colours for their They’re Real Mascara and They’re Real Push Up Liner. I was so excited about this new release especially for the eyeliners! This is my opinions and thoughts on the new products!
Also Please keep in mind its the school holidays at the moment so my makeup in the following pictures isn’t very neat, It was a mum blogger moment where I sat the kids at the table with snacks and ran off to get a couple of pics where the lighting was good! So forgive me for that haha!
– “Lash Hugging Gel Liner Pen”
I originally had the Matte black version of these (which I lost the lid for and it dried out, so so sad about this). If you suck at winged liner this is a great option but it still needs practise to know how to work the pen. the tip as you can see below is an angled so rubber tip. It’s not so soft that it bends too much but it glides over your eyelid and gets really close to your lash line.
You wind up from the bottom, and the gel comes to the top. Wind slowly because if you wind it heaps too much will come out and you won’t be able to use that excess. describes this liner as “Innovative soft Accuflex tip, that hugs your lash line from corner to corner” This is definitely correct. Now onto the new colours.
As you can see the colours are deep and dark which I think makes them more wearable for more people. If they were bright there would be fewer people who would want to wear them. These are matte and the formula seems to be more smooth and creamy than the original black. Except for the blue, I’m not sure if it’s just me but the blue crumbled on me a little bit. I take part of the blame for this its an extremely quick drying formula and I applied this really slowly, so as I went back over it had dried and then began to flake. With that being said I still love these. You can even see in the swatch that the purple, brown and green are creamy and my blue is more dry.
Now I think this wing is pretty good if I do say so my self. Keep in mind I suck at doing a wing with any other product so I’m really happy with this.
I again originally owned the Black version of this. And its such a great mascara. Its one of my top favourites. Its does everything it claims “Lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!” I second all of that, except the smudging part. Not a massive lot but just a little from my bottom lashes. Two New colours were realised “Beyond Brown’ and “Beyond Blue”. I’m happy to tel you its the same amazing formula just in different colours. The Packaging Oh man its my favourite, it’s so pretty. Really good job with that Benefit!
Now unfortunately I don’t have any shots of the mascara on my eyes as taking pics of my mascara isn’t a strong point haha. But this is a bright Cobolt Blue, not muted or Navy at all like the Liner. Really 90s really bright with the same amazing lengthening features as the original black.
This is a medium cool toned brown mascara. Not for me. I have naturally black eyelashes, so putting this on made me look like I had weird light eyelashes not a good look. If you have naturally light eyelashes GET THIS. My mum has light blonde brown eyelashes and they are really long, sometimes she feel intimidated to wear black mascaras because it’s so intense on her. This would be right up her ally. This one is for any girls with light lashes who want that lengthening and that volume but don’t want the intensity of black against their lighter skin.
OVERALL Really great Job Benefit. Theres now something for everyone in the mascara department which is always good to have more options. With the liners they’ve definitely improved on the formula, they are Insanely long wearing you need an oil based makeup remover to remove them or even just straight up oil and to me this is a good thing. The blue did flake on me so maybe the formula on that one could be improved or I need to speed it up on the wing drawing process haha.
