I discovered this mascara by Benefit called "They're Real" a few years ago. I loved it then and I still do. I've tried many other brands but always seem to come back to this one. The secret is the wand. It is amazing and once you put on your mascara, you use the tip of the wand to separate each individual lash. It makes them pop and that second time around adds a bit more product to your lashes plus it separates them. My only complaint is that it does dry out after a few months. So if this is one you try, know that you will have to replace it every 3 months. Apparently you are supposed to replace your mascara every 3 months anyway, but I don't know if most women really do. So...if you like your lashes to be dark and glamorous, give this one a try. It's worth it if you take your mascara seriously. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!
