New They're Real Mascara and Push-Up Liner | Review

Hello lovelies! So I'm sure you've all heard the hype around Benefit's newest product launch.. the They're Real mascara and push-up liner in full colour! Being a Benebabe, I was lucky to get my hands on these products a few weeks before the official launch which is tomorrow (25th June) so I thought I'd write a quick review for you all.

So the mascara is being launched in blue and brown and there are four new push-up gel liner colours in brown, blue, purple and green. I got my hands on the mascara in Beyond Blue and the push-up liner in Beyond Purple. In the below photo, I'm using the Beyond Purple liner and the Beyond Blue mascara, so you can get an idea of what it looks like on. 

Now I'm being very honest when I say that I wasn't the biggest fan of the original push-up liner.. Yes, I liked it and I love using it on customers because it's so quick and easy to use but I just found that the formula was slightly too dry and would become a bit crumbly by the end of the day. Luckily though, the new liners actually have a new, creamier formula. So creamy in fact that it can be smudged as an eyeshadow which is what I have done in the below look. To pull the eye look together, I added a bit of Benefit's 'milk it!' eyeshadow on the inner corner and used some 'pause for applause' eyeshadow to blend it all out around the edges.

These colours really add a bit of fun to any look and it's great that the liners can be used as eyeshadow as it gives you a 2-in-1 product which is brilliant and much handier to carry around, rather than bringing liner and eyeshadows and brushes. The mascara also adds some fun as it's an electric blue, rather than a navy so it totally brightens up your eyes. If it's too bright for you, you can use it over the top of a normal black mascara to dull it down slightly. I love how bright it is though! I personally prefer the Roller Lash mascara but love using this blue mascara as it's a bit different.

I've been using these products almost every day since I've received them and love them. I can't wait to try the other colours, especially the blue liner! Definitely get yourself down to a Benefit counter from tomorrow onwards and try out these lovely products. They're definitely worth the hype! I would also like to add that these opinions are 100% my own.

I hope you liked this post. Are you planning on trying these products or are you lucky enough to have tried them already? Let me know in the comments below. Thank you for reading!

With love,


  1. I'm SO glad to hear that the new push up liner formulas are creamier - I just couldn't get on with the previous formula! I'll definitely be trying these out though - especially the purple one because I absolutely loved the look you created with it! Great post gal!
