Beauty | Benefit They're Real Mascara

I'm just going to say it. This post has been a long time coming and I refuse to jump on the bandwagon with this mascara (cue horror-filled gasps). I have tried to love it, I really honestly have but the truth is that I just can't wear it for more than a couple of hours, and here's why...

THE GOOD: This mascara makes your lashes look phenomenal, it volumises, lengthens and frames your eyes beautifully - though I wouldn't necessarily go as far as saying that it resemble false lashes it's certainly one of the best mascaras I've tried in terms of making my eyes pop.

THE BAD: It's not waterproof. And this pains me a lot!

THE UGLY: I have been cursed with oily skin (In short: make up slips, my face shines after a matter of hours but on the bright side we're said to age slower in the face - see there is a plus side). I find that the oily, especially on my lid, wreaks havoc when it comes to my mascara so there are very few brands I can actually own without having to religiously check for the dreaded panda eyes at least three times before mid day. Benefit's They're Real Mascara is the worst! I've applied my makeup, sat down to film and by the end of a ten minute video it's already streamed down my face.

THE VERDICT: I know this is one of those "it's not you it's me" moments. But if you have oily skin then I'd recommend one's just not for you but I'm holding out for a waterproof version!
