I recently was at the Benefits counter at Debenhams and got a brow makeover. When the lady was finished she kindly gave me a sample size of they're real mascara I have used it a few times now and I can't get over how amazing my lashes look, it really is lengthen and volumizing, I absolutely love it.

Having watched Lisa Potter Dixon on YouTube and QVC UK, I think I can use the wand correctly. I have found with all Benefit Mascaras one dip in the tube covers both lower and upper eyelashes of both eyes. I only dip again if I want to apply a second coat which is not often. As always, I use the wand horizontally to cover all my lower lashes, then my upper lashes one eye at a time. After covering all my lashes, I turn the wand vertically, shouting in my head ‘Go vertical’ – if you have watched LPD you will understand, and swipe again along the upper lashes from root to tip paying attention to the outer corner lashes to make sure I have covered all my lashes. As always when applying any mascara, I have a cotton bud or BeautyBlender handy to make sure that I can remove any mascara that has transferred to by my eyebrow. I usually use the black but again from LPD I tried the blue one recently and loved it. It made my hazel eyes look greener. I will be purchasing either again soon.

I quite like this mascara, it’s definitely something I reach for to blend in my natural lashes with my falsies or if I want to lengthen my eyelashes but not too much. It’s great alongside natural makeup in my opinion, it doesn’t look clumpy and separates the eyelashes. Only problem is that the tube dries out quickly which isn’t the best.

This mascara does an amazing job of lengthening and volumising my lashes. Only downside for me is although I have long lashes already I need a good few coats of it to make my lashes look thicker. Other than that I Genuinely love it

Would buy this again although only fault is it dries out quickly. however i could not use any other product now as this have worked perfectly. lengthens your lashes like a dream and helps them become more bold and the applicator is perfect, my lashes are never clumpy when using this

Well. I kinda honestly don’t know where to start with this product.. do I start by saying it’s pretty much my only mascara I didn’t bin after one use? Or that it’s formula is just perfection. I’m gonna start inbetween. I’m sure like most girls I struggled to find the PERFECT mascara.. I wanted something that would give me the full look but no clumps, I wanted the long lashes but not the mess from fall out but mostly I wanted a mascara that would put others to shame! I very very nearly gave up until I came across this.. I first tried a sample size to test the waters with it as I’ve had no luck before with recent mascaras. But after just ONE use I bought the full size and I’m so glad I did. Not only does it stay on my lashes ALL DAY.. but it gives them such a lush full look😍you can either use one layer and have a natural approach to using this or after a few layers you could have a full dramatic look and this is what I love about this mascara. The brush is great! It makes sure that you have no clumps because the brush is that thin and ensures that any clumps are gone! I’d massively recommend this mascara to anyone..

This is the only mascara I can use effectively. I'd almost given up on it until a friend let me try her Benefit mascara. It's amazing for lengthening and separating lashes. Mine look like doll lashes as opposed to a clumpy spidery mess! The rubber-like texture when they dry means it's long lasting and doesn't smudge throughout the day like other brands. I've tried other high end mascaras, including other by Benefit, but I come back to this again and again.

This is a good mascara if you want length however if you want volume then you might not like this as much. I love to use this with the they're real eyelash primer which adds volume to my lashes and makes the mascara last longer and look better. I find it easy to apply and the end of the wand makes it really easy for ,e to apply the mascara on the inner corners and my bottom lashes.

I had wanted to try any of the Benefit mascaras for a long time, I luckily managed to get three in a set. When I tried this mascara out part of me really hoped this lived up to the hype I had heard and the other part of me wanted this to be over hyped and over priced so I didn’t want to double the price for a mascara than I was used. Saying that, when I used this, I loved it! I think it gives a lovely long natural look to my lashes. It doesn't give much volume but its beautiful for a day time look in my opinion and the product name suits it well!

The lady at Benefit put this on me and I thought it was bloody amazing. However when I used it at home, the effect was nowhere near as dramatic. I can only think that this was either because I had a mascara on already when the Sales Assistant applied it, or because I don’t have the right technique. Either way, I wouldn’t buy again because I have had much better success with cheaper alternatives.

I paid £20 when this came and was expecting real miracles with it... I don't have natural long eyelashes but even with the last paradise I can take it until I make it. This really didn't wow me for the price ok it has a lovely wand and pigment good and you can build it up to give some length. For the price I was MAD at the work I needed to work at it. For £10 I can get last paradise and look like a queen 🤣

This mascara definitely lengthens my lashes. I am two weeks into using it and so far would buy it again. It's an easy, minimal smudge, application. The wand is fairly long and not too wide, it features rows of alternating short and long rubber bristles. The short bristles deposit the formula, while the longer ones catch and comb through every lash. No clumping and no flaking. It lasts the whole day - the only negative I will raise is that it is trickier to remove than other mascaras I have used in the past. Great for lasting throughout the day, a killer for removing at night!

I have been wearing this mascara for almost two weeks now and I absolutely love it, it makes my lashes really long without making them overly clumpy and the bristles really cling on to your lashes so it doesn't get all over. Highly recommend.

Not keen on this. Now to begin with it did make my lashes look good, they looked longer, volumised but after a few hours it would smudge around my eyes and would flake off. I also think it made my lashes feel clumpy...much prefer the roller lash.

This mascara is decent, non clumping and separates your lashes. It's very black and doesn't flake or smudge. It's downfall I think is that despite me curling my lashes this straightened them, the actual tube or product dried out very quickly and it's theee worst to remove, how I still have lashes left baffles me. I much prefer benefit roller lash mascara.
