Benefit They're Real Lash Primer

Happy New Year to you all!

I know I haven't posted in a while so I will have to play a bit of catch up on some of the great products I have been trying. I feel like 2016 is going to be an exciting year for all things beauty so I am going to do my very best in keeping you all updated with reviews.

Sounds strange but to kick off this year I am going to be talking about one of the more anticipated products from the back end of last year (feels weird saying that 2015 is last year...).

Benefit have been adding to their well-known and, in my opinion, controversial They're Real line, I say it's controversial because there are so many mixed reviews on these products and s someone who has tried a few items in the line I would say I fall on the 'Not a fan' side of it all. However, my opinions of previous products will definitely not stop me from trying new things. So before I waffle on any more I think I should get started with my review of the new They're Real Lash Primer.

They're Real Lash Primer is very similar in looks to the original They're Real mascara, which was a massive concern for me, knowing that I really wasn't a fan of that product. One thing I noticed was that the wands are really similar but not exactly the same, the primer has a much thinner wand than the mascara which I prefer because I felt that the spikes on the mascara were a little bit too long and sharp and I have fallen prey to stabbing myself in the eye with it.

One thing I really like with this primer is that it is brown. I know this might not be for everyone but sometimes I like a more natural look, especially if I am in a hurry and this really helps to frame my eyes but makes it look like a better version of my natural lashes.

As for being a primer I kind of feel that it made absolutely no impact to my lashes. I tried wearing in on one side so that I could compare the results and I really couldn't see anything.

I do think this has a much nicer and more comfortable formula than the mascara and I definitely will continue to wear this on more natural days but as a primer I really don;t see the benefit (pardon the pun!).

I would love to know your thoughts on this product, tell me what you think in the comments.

Speak soon,
