Hey girl!

You know how I am proud with my beautiful eyes (ahem!). We all have that best asset and mine are my eyes that's why I am fascinated on products that enhances my best asset specifically mascara and eyeliner. They are my favorite make-up I put on my eyes. Last month, I got my BDJ box (Sorry, I'm still can't get over it and I am still raving about it.) and luckily, one of the item from the box is this cute sample size of Benefit They're Real Beyond Mascara. Even if it is not in a full size product, I don't mind because mascara doesn't last long. As much as possible, I used it only for 3 months and most up to 6 months after the first use. Plus, this cute sample size is just enough to fit my make-up kit. May it be a sample size, the wand and the product is still the same the difference is only it is in this cute little tube. Let's talk more about it.

 Packaging. I haven't seen the full sized product in actual but I have an idea on how it looks through images. The overall look of the full size is pretty much the same as the sample size only it is on a smaller tube. The packaging looks decent and well made. It is made in a good quality plastic material. 

Wand. I remember I've read one of the beauty site they said, mascara products are almost all the same. It makes a difference on how the wand is made. Well, I think it has point. Although I can't guarantee the ingredients of every mascara (what we only knew was it was in a thick liquid material), we are sure that mascara wand really makes a difference on how the product will be distributed in our eyelashes.

Look at the difference of the mascara wands.

What I like about the mascara wand of this product is, it is sturdy made for better application. The wand is made of closely distributed spikes that creates a full volume effect.

Consistency. The product itself is thick in consistency that holds the lashes in place. It also helps in creating a dramatic effect on lashes.

Lasting effect. As per my experience, it is long lasting and it doesn't wear off until I removed it. The only thing I don't like about this product is, because the product itself is thick, after you wash it off with water, it can't be removed easily causing you to have panda eyes. Better to use eye make-up remover when removing this mascara unless you might have hard time rinsing it off with water only. On the positive note, you can really say that it is long wearing and can't be removed easily.

Overall experience. I am always open to try out different eye make-up products and I am happy that this one is worth a try. By this time, I actually don't stick with one eye product to use but definitely, this mascara makes a difference and give my eyes an extra ohmp! It is expensive for a regular consumer like me but if you are looking for a product that works and don't mind the prize as long as it is worth it, this one is a good buy.


Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
