The compliments I've been getting since I picked up Benefit's "They're Real" mascara have been off the charts. My lashes look so long and curled, no one can believe they're real (no false advertising here!). After a full day of wear, my lashes were still springy and soft, and there wasn't a hint of under eye smudging.
Recently, I lent my tube to a coworker for a special lunch (I know, not the most hygienic, but she was having an emergency!) and was rewarded with this note post-event: " I just knocked a major music mogul's socks off with one bat of the lashes!"
Try it for yourself, and let me know how it goes. If you're not planning on wearing falsies for your bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner, this might be a great swipe-on, wash-off solution.
