I’m starting off the week with a lengthy subject… eyelashes. They frame the window to soul and whether your’s are uber long or semi-short I think we can all agree the right mascara can really enhance a gorgeous gaze. In lieu of “enhancing” I have to share my chic secret, “They’re Real” by Benefit. I made the switch in February. For years I have worn Dior Show, and then recently for their anniversary I purchased the Dior Show Extasé in its almost platinum looking bottle, at $30 a tube but wasn’t entirely impressed. And yeah, yikes. That’s a bit on the high-end, even for my lash loving self. So I started asking around and trying different brands, when my co-worker told me about They’re Real. At $22 a tube it wasn’t significantly cheaper but if it made my lashes look like they were long and lean, who I am to get in the way.
After completing my first tube, I have to say I am a believer! I sent a couple of tubes home to my mom and sister for Easter, because it is clearly a holiday that warrants the gift of cosmetics… and they too have jumped on the Benefit Bandwagon. A couple of things to know about this product:
Maybe she’s born with it? Yup, They’re Real.
Since we can’t all be like my gorgeous little god-daughter Liliana, and just come out the womb with amazing wispy butterfly lashes, we will have to improvise with today’s fabulous tube of greatness.
