Mascara Week Part 5: My Holy Grail Mascara

To wrap up Mascara Week, I want to share my detailed review of my Holy Grail Mascara: Benefit They're Real ($23).  

The first time I used this mascara, I was absolutely blown away.  I had heard good reviews, but nothing prepared me for the amazingness to come!

It gives absolutely amazing length and volume, separates your lashes flawlessly, and stays in place without smudging.  It is a wet formula, but that's right up my alley.  It does dry up a bit after a few weeks, but never to the point that you feel you're using a different mascara.  It always remains perfect.

The plastic brush is very unique and the spiky ball on top really lets you get every last lash.  I also find that the ball allows you to coat your lower lashes so much easier than a typical mascara wand.  (I prefer plastic brushes to typical bristle wands.)  

It is also one of the blackest shades I've ever used, which I love.  I really enjoy dramatic lashes even during the day, so the extreme length and volume you get from this mascara is perfect for me.

Removal of this one can be a bit tough.  It is very water-resistant, so an oil or oil-based remover is necessary.

I know it's pricey, and I know it's a pain to remove, but it is SO worth it.  I will repurchase this until the day they no longer make it.  And when that day comes I will run out and buy 39402630423948203984 backups of it. ;)

Do you love Benefit They're Real as much as I do?  What is your HG mascara?  Please share!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed :)
