Benefit They’re Real! Review

Image

So I have been contemplating a lot to whether I should buy Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ mascara.
I have been hearing a lot of mixed reviews about it, but I eventually decided to bite the bullet and try it out for myself I was shocked at how expensive it was, €26 is quite pricey for my liking. 
I bought it about a month ago now, and have been using it almost every day. 

My overall thoughts on the product:

  • It’s not my favourite mascara of all time, but I don’t hate it as it really lengthens my lashes which make my eyes look bigger.
  • It lengthens my lashes but does not give them volume! ( Yes there is a difference!) Which has to do with the wand.
  • The wand has plastic bristles on it which help separate the lashes evenly leaving no clumps, but they do leave a lot of excess product at the tip of the wand making you wipe it all at the top of the mascara tube, wasting product!
  • The product is very wet, so it takes a while to dry while results in a lot of smudging.
  • I always put mascara on my fake eyelashes when I have applied them to my lashline, make them look more real, but when putting the mascara on them it makes them look like I have used an eyelash curler, making them really stand up giving me very big fish eyes. So i would not use it on fake lashes ever

As you can see on the right the lashes are really lenghtened making your eyes look bigger and brighter.

Bobbi Brown Bronzer Review

Everyone has a favourite bronzer.
One that you have had for years, that you can’t do your own makeup without, and personally a bronzer that you always have at the bottom of your handbag.

My favourite bronzer would have to be Bobbi Brown matte bronzer. I use the shade Medium, as it suits my skin tone.
Everyone’s skin is different so it is a matter if finding a shade that suits you best! This bronzer is a must have!
I absolutely love it. I have had it for 6 years and it never seems to fail me!

It costs around €33, which is quite expensive, but it will last you so long!

It is a matte bronzer, instead of a shimmer one so it gives you a really natural sun kissed look.
It looks so natural and gives a lovely warm effect in your skin.

It comes in a compact, with a mirror so you can use it when your too busy to sit sit down and apply your full makeup and keep it in your handbag when your on the go!
Just by adding a little bit to your cheeks using a blusher or bronzer brush when your in a rush and giving your eyelashes a quick coat of mascara can make such a difference! Giving you a gorgeous flawless natural summer look.

I would recommend this bronzer to anyone! I have tested out other bronzers but nothing compares to this Bobbi brown bronzer!

I hope I helped anyone in the search of a perfect bronzer! But definitely try this one out guys!
