Quick review of this new cult product, Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner!

benefit they're real push up lash hugghing eyeliner

NOT A FAN. I really really wanted to love this as benefit is a brand I am personally drawn to. It promises fail proof cat eyes for everyone. I have been a makeup artist for YEARS. I spent half the time going, what? Is it working now? Is this the right way? Is this texture for real?

Cons:
  • Dryish and in turn, it sometimes leaves chunks of liner on my eyes and lashes. Not pretty if you don’t find that immediately. Raccoon eyes in your near future.
  • Does NOT go on smoothly.
  • It’s so thick that the applicator just can’t live up to the promises. At $24, I wanted this to be amazing (it’s listed higher on amazon, but I found a better price).
Pros:
  • The black is REAL. I had to put it on my hand and work with it on an angled brush, but I loved it when I was able to warm it up and apply it this way. It was inky and dark. Dreamy pigment.
  • Once you finally get it on and are happy with the way it looks, it STAYS. I seriously had to let coconut oil sit on my eyes for 5 minutes before I could GENTLY remove it all 10 hours after the original application.

 

All in all, not worth it. Sorry benefit‬. I really wanted to love this!
