I come to you bearing a review of a mascara everybody already loves and raves about.
Never one to follow a trend i am seemingly late to this pants party.
But wait, am i late?
Or did i just intentionally wait until all the hype was over,
then present my two cents when you would actually care to read it??
The truth is i'm a procrastination queen and just kept saying,
"tomorrow tomorrow, i'll do it then"
*whispering* i didn't though...
The other side of the truth is i didn't want to,
nay, couldn't afford to,
spend £20 on a mascara before trying it out first.
Luckily for me Elle had it as a freebie some weeks ago and my parents picked me up a few copies.
Thank you parents!
I now have four of these mini tubes and i am super chuffed because,
yep, you guessed it,
i effing love this mascara!!!
I am not usually a fan of mascaras with plastic brushes but i'll make an exception here.
The brush gives the lashes an all over, even coating,
and the mascara, however it's made, is wonderful.
It left my lashes thick and lengthened, but not clumpy or spidery, which i hate!
Also it dried really fast,
which i really like, because i'm not one to spend forever on my make up.
Plus, i often sneeze right after doing my mascara,
[i get weirder, i know]
so having it dry quickly was brilliant, no sneezy mess to clean up!
The only thing that irked me about this was that ball on the end of the brush.
It seemed to grab a bunch of lashes and stick them all together if i wasn't careful.
I wondered if this was just because the wand is smaller,
as it's just a sample size.
I brought this up with a friend of mine and she assured me it's not clumpy or overly large on the normal sized product.
Well then, i'm sold!
Please enjoy some pictures where my large pores and smaller eye are excruciatingly obvious...
With Benefit They're Real.
Woah look out, try not to poke your eyes out with those bad boys!
This is just one coat.
I'm not one for multiple layers of mascara so getting this result with one coat,
So there you have it.
I, as well as many others, love this mascara.
The hype is not just hype,
it really is as good as 'they' all say it is.
As soon as my 4 samples run out i'll have probably saved enough money to treat myself to the actual real life full sized version,
and let me tell you,
i am excited!
I read somewhere that asking questions at the end of a post connects you to your readers so...
did everyone watch Game of Thrones this week?
