Review: Benefit - They are real! Beyond mascara

My mascara is running out and as soon as I spotted a free luxury sample of Benefit - They are real! beyond mascara, given away with the June issue of Elle Magazine UK, I had to get my hands on it to see whether it lived up to its claim of giving you eyelashes as impressive as false ones.

In my opinion my eyelashes look definitely longer, a little bit thicker and slightly curlier after applying Benefit - They are real! beyond mascara in multiple coats, but I cannot see results similar to what I get by wearing false eyelashes.

The plastic brush is quite large and it tends to leave traces of mascara, that I need to remove with a cotton bud, along my eyelashes line. Nevertheless the bristles are well designed for  achieving definition without clumping. It does not flake or smudge either and it removes easily with a standard face wash or eye makeup remover at the end of the day.
Overall this is a good mascara and I will enjoy using up my sample even though I am not sure I would buy a full size because there are other mascaras in the same price range (e.g. Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour, Makeup Forever Smoky Lash) which I still like best.
