Benefit They're Real! Push up liner

benefit they're real liner benefit they're real liner on eyes

I know every blogger under the sun has done a review of this eyeliner but alas, I purchased this myself and it took me a while to take the plunge so I'm a little behind.
I won't go into too much detail as you probably know all about it, it's a gel eyeliner shoved into a tube with a nifty little nib that's supposed to make application easy for winged novices. I've been using the pen style liquid liners since the day of dawn but I'm still pretty rubbish at applying it, my right eye always decides to do a little eyelid mexican wave just as I'm about to go in for the kill, and I'm forever left with wonky lines that leave me reaching for the cotton buds.

So was They're Real sent from the eyeliner gods to give all of us no fuss flicks? Err, I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I like it don't get me wrong, but I like it for reasons that aren't application-ey. I don't know whether I'm useless at hand things (spreading butter is a nightmare for me) but I still get the uneven lines with this, and because the gel comes out in lumps you end up sort of dragging a mini black ball across your lid and hoping for the best.

The selling point for me is the staying power, once you get the hang of applying it you're left with a blacker than black line that lasts for hours. I put this on at 7am and it's still there by 7pm unmarked which is amazing as no one really enjoys touching up makeup throughout the day. I've read a few reviews where people have worn it to the gym and it still refuses to budge.

I've not had much of an issue removing it either, the chap in the Carnaby Street store tried his very best to get me to buy the They're Real Remover but I was having none of it, baby lotion till the day I die on that front, and it works every time.

Have you tried they're real yet? What did you think?


  1. I have personally been using the Maybelline dupe of this product and I find that it works in almost the same way. I get what you mean by the product coming out in lumps and although the concept is innovative and seems to be a good idea, when it comes down to using it, it is a bit of a hassle and difficult to get a nice clean line.
    Personally, I think the maybelline one is very good in lasting power and I am content with it therefore the high price tagged benefit will be a miss for me :)

    Thank you for reviwing, I hope you have a lovely day! ^^

  2. I really want to try this! But I've seen so many mixed reviews I'm not sure it's worth the money.

  3. I have bought the maybelline version and I do like it, although it can be a little difficult to use sometimes. They are both very similar. I won’t be running out to buy the Benefit version anytime soon!

  4. I've heard such mixed things about this, and I'm still curious! The application does seem a bit fiddly, but the lasting power does sound impressive! xo
