Product Review: Benefit They're Real Mascara

I mentioned on Friday that Benefit's They're Real Mascara has creeped its way into my favorites. Let me explain: I have used the same mascara almost religiously since I can remember. I have ventured out a little bit when the "latest, greatest" mascara released, but I have never been impressed enough to make the switch permanent. The way I see it, Covergirl Lash Blast is only $7 and it works wealt Why change? So when it comes to They're Real, I was pretty skeptical to say the least. The first day I tried it, I didn't see too much of a difference as I have relatively long lashes. The main thing I yearn for is more volume and something that will last throughout the day. Day 2 I noticed my lashes seemed a bit thicker and longer. Day 3 I was hooked.

Lasts ALL day without smudging or flaking
Needs less coats for my desired look
Difficult to remove at night
I only found 1 color (Black) which is my preference {but may not be ideal for those who like brown mascaras}

Starts flaking near the end of the day
Easier to remove at night
Many colors {Brown-Blackest Black}

No makeup
