I split my time between Scotland and London, so I'm in airports ALOT, so I thought every few weeks I'd do a post about what products Ive found and purchased in Duty Free, since you can get some great discounts for makeup!
I love browsing around Duty Free, it's like a discounted department store, they have every makeup brand you could want, so I had a little wander over to Benefit this week:
My find : Benefit They're Real! Mascara
High Street Price: £18.50
Airport Price: £15.40 - That will do nicely!
What Benefit Says;
"The UK's No.1 Best Selling Mascara
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumises, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!"
Sounds very appealing, so I had to try it out!
First off, I really liked the packaging, its very sleek and professional
The brush is the secret to massive lashes , you use it like a normal mascara brush, wiggling it from side to side as you pull it through your lashes, then hold it vertically and use the ball at the end to separate your lashes for a maximum volume
My eyelashes before mascara aren't anything special
I've already applied my usual eyeshadow and eyeliner to be able to show you the full finished effect:
Also excuse my eyebrows! I'm going to be going to get them tinted and waxed to blog about , so bear with them! Haha x
So here's the result:
What do you guys think? I found the mascara slightly clumpy to apply, even after I used the ball at the top to separate, but I'm thrilled with how long they made my eyelashes
Would you guys buy it? Has anyone used Benefit mascaras before? Do you think you'd swap your false eyelashes for it? I would definitely buy this again!
Hope you enjoyed that little review!
