Welcome to my next edition of ” Cult Classics!?” “Cult Classic” products, in my eyes, are products that are reached this higher level of hype either online or in real life. Everyone knows those products that everyone and their sister seems to rave about. I bet you can think of a few of those products right now, that have been around for a while and girls have repeatedly purchased or have labeled them as “holy grail” products.
In this series, I’m testing out these products that everyone seems to rave about and see if they really live up to the hype! I want to find out for myself, and for you guys, if they really deserve the “Cult Classic” title. Up next …the Benefit They’re Real Mascara!
This mascara has basically turned into something bigger than a “cult classic!” I don’t think I’ve ever heard something negative about this mascara. I had to know how this stacks up, and luckily enough this was the Sephora Birthday gift this year!
So how does this mascara measure up? Lets check it out …
At the time this mascara came out, this brush was something innovative. The little torture ball at the end is designed to grab every lash and make your lashes perfectly fanned out. Now, many mascaras have a similar wand, which I think is due to the popularity of this mascara.
The formula on this is the perfect mix of wet and dry. It isn’t overly wet or overly dry, which made it basically perfect right out of the tube! Sometimes mascaras have a week long learning curve, where the mascara needs to dry out slightly but this was perfect right away.
What I like: this mascara basically does everything a mascara is supposed to do! It separates and defines every lash! It gives a little bit of volume and a little bit of length. If you’re going to buy just one mascara, this is definitely one that hits all the bases (even if it doesn’t do anything to any extreme).
What I don’t like: this mascara is a little bit flaky. While this mascara is a great mascara, it doesn’t do anything to the extreme. It gives ok volume and ok length.
Overall, I think this is an absolutely amazing mascara! I love the look it gives and how much it separates. But I personally like a bigger lash look. So this became a great mascara for layering!
Final Verdict: Yes, total Cult Classic! It deserves all the hype that people have given it! I think that every girl needs to try this mascara out at some point because it really does perform amazingly!
What do you guys think? Have you tried this mascara?
