About :

Since 1989 Benefits cosmetics & perfumes haven’t been tested on Animals – So it’s a cruelty free Cosmetics Company.

“Laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin & wear it!” — Jean & Jane Ford, co-founders. In 1976

former models Jean and Jane Ford opened a quirky boutique in San Francisco where they introduced the world’s first “Fake-Its”…instant beauty solutions with laugh-out-loud names and creative packaging.

Benefit is one of my favourite cosmetic companies, I adore them so much. I’ve never had any issues, I have loved all their products I have used and they’re packaging is always the cutest or coolest!. They’re a cult favourite and their mascaras are my ride or dies.

They’re Real! Mascara 

Available at Sephora

Retails for :

  • $31 (CAD) – Full Size
  • $16 (CAD) – Mini Size

A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes. It comes in three shades

  1. Black
  2. Beyond Brown
  3. Beyond Blue

What I love most about this mascara is the wand, it’s so fantastic and I can get my super tiny inner corner lashes super easily. The formula is also amazing, it’s similar in was to their ‘roller lash’ but this one is a tad thicker, it’s not as natural as roller lash it’s a more dramatic mascara. The tube is pretty big it’s 0.3 oz/ 8.5 g and lasts a long time with daily use. The packaging isn’t as cute as roller lash but it’s very sleek and ‘sexy’.

It is a best seller & Cult favourite as well as their Roller Lash.


Go horizontal: the staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length and volume.
Then go vertical: the custom-domed tip with precision bristles lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes.


For super curl and length, apply Roller Lash first to curl and lift your lashes. Then layer They’re Real! lengthening mascara on top.

I would rate it a 4.5, I adore it but I love the roller lash more. However I love mixing them and using both!. I would repurchase again.

They’re Real! Push-Up Liner

Available at Sephora

Retails For :

  • $31 (CAD) – Full Size
  • $16 (CAD) – Mini Size

An innovative, waterproof, lash-hugging gel eyeliner pen that lasts for 24 hours. It comes in five shades.

  1. Black
  2. Beyond Brown
  3. Beyond Blue
  4. Beyond Purple
  5. Beyond Green

I love gel liners, and I love liquid pen liners and I think it’s genius that they created a two in one to make a Gel liner pen. I really liked the formula, but it was super hard to remove unless used with the remover which I’ll be reviewing next. It is a Paraben free formula. It easily hugs the lash line, and it’s super long lasting and dries down perfectly. It’s sort of more on the matte side, not shiny. It lasts up to 24 hours and is water proof but it should be removed before bedtime to prevent the blocking of pores. The packaging is pretty cool, you twist the base to get the product, it’s packaging is also pretty cute, again sleek and ‘sexy’. It has an ”AccuFlex™” tip, it was a slight learning curve but it’s actually super easy to use, and easily glides compared to pencils, and easier to work with than a liquid liner since it’s a gel and the formula is thicker so there isn’t any running.

There’s a lot of bad reviews since most people find it awkward (Again, learning curve) But I actually really liked it and I want to repurchase again to have on hand sense it was so smooth to apply and I loved the formula. There was also no flaking.

However if you like trying new things and funky products I highly suggest and recommend this!.

I would rate it a 4, I really did like it a lot, i think the packaging is cute and neat, the concept is great, I love the formula however it was a learning curve and you do go through quite a bit of product faster since it’s a gel and it doesn’t come in a pot like most gel liners, so there isn’t as much product. But I want to repurchase again.

They’re Real! Remover

Available at Sephora

Retails for : 

$24 (CAD) Only comes in one size.

A waterproof eye makeup remover that completely lifts away makeup.

It’s a creamy gel formula, the ‘They’re Real!’ Mascara & Liner are water proof so they are pretty difficult to remove, it can be done with normal removers however it takes seconds with this. For me I didn’t need to use this every time it just depended on my mood, but it was quicker and much easier to get it off with this.

There was more tugging when I didn’t use this so if you don’t like that I’d suggest using this, I assume it would be usable with most other water proof makeup, but I liked it. There really wasn’t a scent but it did smell a bit fresh.

Rating :

3.0 / 5 stars with 204 Reviews on Sephora at this time.

3.97 / 5 Stars with 218 Reviews on Influenster at this time.

I would rate it a 3, I like it, I think it’s great, packaging is cute, tube is well made and does what I need it to, however I feel it is unnecessary because it’s virtually the same product as other make up removers and acts the same, so I’m sure there’s a cheaper option that would have the same desired outcome. I probably won’t buy it again.

    1. It is intimidating because of the funky tip but the formula is worth the learning curve 👏🏻
      It took me about 2 uses to get it how I wanted it and to learn how but after that it’s super easy and it’s such a creamy formula it glides on so great!
      And it’s easier to clean than a normal gel liner because of the rubber tip!
