Benefit - "They're Real" Mascara.

I like mascara. No really. Could you tell? ;) I've always wanted to try Benefits "They're Real" mascara after reading numerous great things about it. But I'm not one to fork out 20+€ for a mascara to turn around and maybe not like it yano? So thank the lord for magazine freebies. A mascara and a magazine all for under a tenner? Bargaineous.
Benefit "They're Real" claims to "lengthen, curl, volumise, separate and lift" your lashes. I found it does pretty much all these things except separate. I don't know if it's just me but I found it stuck my lashes together rather than separate them which made for some uncomfortable eyes. This problem was easily solved however by coating my lashes with a different mascara first and then applying "They're Real" on top. For the purpose of the before and after I didn't do this. As you can see it does lengthen, curl and volumise my lashes. They look pretty awesome and it really helped open up my eyes and give them that extra oomph. This is the first mascara I have tried that has a plastic wand and I have to say, I love it. The way the bristles are positioned at the end of the wand are perfect for grabbing those stubbornly small lashes at the corner of your eyes that you can never reach no matter how much you try. Definitely the winning point for me. My eyelashes look longer and have that bit of volume that we all want to achieve from our mascara. Other than the lil issue of separation (I'm too fussy and dread the spider leg look) I'm obsessed. What do you guys think? Comment below.
Ps. I would be so thankful if you guys took a minute to nominate my blog in the 'Irish Blog Awards' under the beauty/fashion section. I would also love if you referred to the sidebar and would nominate my blog for 'OohLaLa' Magazines blog awards under the 'Beauty' section. Massive love if you do.

I got a little tube of this in a set and whilst I do really like it, it does clump a couple of lashes together if I'm not careful x

I'm kinda on the fence about this, I found it does clump a little if you're not careful!

I got the magazine sample too (didn't even read the magazine, oops) but I really liked the mascara, it made my lashes look huge! Not sure I'd fork out for the full size though.
