Benefit 'The Real Steal' Review

Earlier this month I picked up 'The Real Steal' set by Benefit. It contains a full size of They're Real! mascara, a travel size of the Push-Up Liner and a tester of They're Real! remover. These three products come in a set for just £19.50 which is an absolute bargain because its RRP is £24. 

If you want to purchase this set, here are a few places you can find it:

They're Real! Mascara
I know I'm late on the bandwagon but this mascara is amazing! On use, it is so easy to apply adding length and volume as well as separating the lashes - everything I look for in a mascara. It stays in place all day without smudging and to top it all off it is easy to remove with regular makeup remover (I used the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water).

Would I repurchase: Yes

They're Real! Push Up Liner

I've never been able to master the art of winged eyeliner so I was excited to try this product. I had heard a mix of reviews about it so I was interested to try it for myself.  

This is a gel liner but in a super handy pen form. The nib is angled and flexible but it's not easy to get the right amount of product out. Overall, I found it difficult to use and the product itself was quite dry and flaky. All in all I made a total mess of my face and had to remove it immediately. It does not come off with regular makeup remover so you definitely need to buy the 'They're Real! Remover' (a sneaky move Benefit!).

Would I repurchase: No.

They're Real! Remover 
The remover worked pretty well to remove the liner from my eyes although I had to scrub it a bit, leaving my eyes quite red (a big no no).

I hope this review is useful. Let me know what you think of the They're Real! range.
