This mascara is really good. I like how it does not flake off through the day it stays right in place and it does give really nice volumized lashes. I love all the benifit mascaras I think they are all the best mascaras out right now. I have never had a better mascara and I have been loyal to my Benifit mascaras. They are just way 10 tes better than any mascara I have used in the past. You could choose any of their mascara and you'll be blown away and wont by any other mascaras I guarantee it!

I love this primer I've been using it since it came out. This is an every day mascara for me. It's brown and it's legnthening but not volumizing by any means. It just gives your lashes a natural brown longer look. I really love it. I want to try the they're real brown mascara I saw they now have and maybe I'll like that better but this is good for under mascara too. I just don't use it for that.

I love this product! I use it all the time under my mascara and everyone asks me if i wear false lashes! Its super light and the brown looks like a black mascara! The price is about the same as a mascara you would purchase and you apply it just like a mascara. Personally i always purchase the travel size just because i prefer the brush! I will defiently recommend it!

This is my absolute favorite mascara I’ve ever used. The first pass over your lashes acts as a primer. Every pass after that lengthens and thickens your lashes. I’ve had much less lash fallout using this product. My lashes don’t feel crunchy after use like they do with other mascaras. Where this product is concerned, I am a customer for life.

amazing!!! Just what I wanted for a natural look! I typically use this as a way for it to look like I just have naturally dark eyelashes but it also does a great job as a primer too! I’ve gone through about five or six bottles of this stuff since it was first released so it’s safe to say it’s a go to! So much length with a little curl!

I️ love this! I️ have been buying it for over two years. My eyelashes are shorter, so this is great to prime them before I️ apply mascara. I️ have used other primers in the past, but it’s always difficult to cover up because it is white. This primer is brown, so it is not noticeable if I️ miss a lash. Would definitely recommend!

I am absolutely in love with this mascara!  I am not a huge beauty guru, but a I know a good product when I find it.  It lasts all day, even into the next if I forget to take it off, and it makes my eyes look AMAZING! Even if you aren’t a huge makeup person, you will love this product.

A while back, I received this mini as a deluxe sample. I liked it so much that I just bought the regular size!! I like the natural look so this is perfect for me. You also can use this to color your roots when your color grows out before your next coloring. A multipurpose essential product! Love!

I received a sample sized version of the Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Tinted Primer! from one of my beauty subscription boxes and I love it. I usually layer mascaras, but now I use this primer. It is my first step in my mascara process then I follow up with mascara. I love it!

My sister bought this product for me for Christmas. The product makes my lashes look great but if it gets on your skin which applying the mascara you pretty much have to remove your full face of makeup just to remove it. The drying time for the mascara is unusually long, so I avoid blinking. If I could figure out how to resolve this aside from an eyelash curler which partially helps this product is definitely worth the purchase.

Is this mascara super flaky my friend told me it flakes a lot and can it be worn alone on more casual occasions.
