Benefit: They're Real!

Another win for Benefit Cosmetics - I am loving their mascara "they're real!" For the last two months I've been using Latisse (review to come) so I can't comment on the length this mascara may or may not provide. However, what I love, and what I've not been able to find in any other mascara I've used, is the way that it separates your lashes. It's unreal (hah!), but seriously, the brush is very unique and there isn't an opportunity to clump at all. Another benefit - they also sell a smaller size ($10) so you can see if it works for you. I wish more cosmetics companies would do that! The only downfall is that it doesn't dry very quickly, which means I have to wait a lot longer to curl my lashes. (Am I the only one who curls after applying mascara??)

Wait you curl after you apply mascara?? I've never heard of that before! I will have to try this, I have the worse time with clumping.

Yep - I've always done one coat, curl, then a second coat. I've never had a problem with clumping...but sometimes the curler getting stuck on the lashes. I don't feel as if I get a good enough curl when I do it before!

I do the same thing that you do - curl, one coat, curl, another coat. I love this stuff, but the drying time is PAINFULLY long! I'll honestly probably go back to good old Cover Girl Lash Blast. Similar brush, dries fast and it's only like $7-8 a tube. The one drugstore makeup item that I use!
