Benefit They're Real! Trio (Push-Up Liner, Remover & Mascara)


Benefit They're Real! Trio (Push-Up Liner, Remover & Mascara) Review Beauty In-depth

Unless you've been living under a rock when it comes to beauty products in the past couple of months, I have a feeling you will be more than aware that Benefit Cosmetics have released two brand new eye make-up products; the They're Real! Push-Up Liner and the They're Real! Remover. I've actually tried my best to avoid all other reviews of these newly released products, whilst I've been trying them out, to make sure that I give the products a fair assessment. Now that I've had a quick read through some of the reviews of the Push-Up Liner in particular, I'm glad that I wasn't swayed or influenced by the somewhat mixed reviews that I've seen. I've had a good couple of weeks to really put the three products, when you include the They're Real! Mascara, to the test. So if you're looking for an in-depth review of the Benefit They're Real! trio, then you've come to the right place.


Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner Beauty Review

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner* £18.50
It would be criminal (see what I did there?) not to start with the most exciting and innovative of the three They're Real! products. This eagerly anticipated and remarkable push-up liner blends together the benefits of a gel eye liner and a pen applicator to create one of the most buzzed about beauty releases that I have ever seen/heard of. What really makes this liner an exciting prospect, for me personally, is the AccuFlex tip. This flexible and soft angled tip allows you to  glide along the natural curve of your lash line and really get the liner to hug the lash line.

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner Accuflex Tip Beauty Review

The formula itself is a true matte black gel which doesn't smudge, budge or fade. I couldn't believe how incredibly quickly this liner dries. That's perhaps my only minor issue with the They're Real! Push-Up Liner, if you're not quick or particularly neat when applying this then it's not the easiest of products to quickly alter or remove. Once it has dried it's there for good, which isn't necessarily a negative at all, as long as you have a good eye make-up remover at hand.

When you first use the Push-Up Liner you only need to twist the base a couple of times before the gel appears from the AccuFlex™ tip. I purposefully twisted the bottom of the product several more times than you would need to ordinarily, just to show you how the product is dispensed and how it appears when you use it.

Can you tell I had fun playing with this the first time I used it? Hehe. As you can see, you can really create a variety of thicknesses and flicks with this liner. You can even use the liner to create a smoky kohl-like effect, which hopefully the
 last three lines demonstrate. 

Now as I briefly mentioned above, this stuff does not budge at all once it has dried. There is no need to reapply this liner throughout the day and it literally does not come off until you decide to remove it. This leads me on nicely to the next product in the They're Real! trio and the second of the brand new Benefit releases; the They're Real! Remover.

Benefit They're Real! Remover Beauty Review

Benefit They're Real! Remover* £15.50
As I will reiterate throughout this post, if you want to make sure you can easily remove the They're Real make-up products then I would seriously consider purchasing the They're Real! Remover. If you have tried the They're Real! Mascara before, which I will go into more detail about below, then you will know how tough the mascara is to remove. Even after using my go-to micellar water, I would still be able to see and feel it on my lashes, which is probably why I don't wear it as much as I would like to... until now.
As you can hopefully see, the Remover itself is of a creamy consistency.


Unlike with micellar waters and traditional eye make-up removers, you don't need to spend ages rubbing your eyes to get rid of every last trace of the products in question. This remover is really powerful despite being as gentle and creamy as it is. It melts away even the toughest of products, which the They're Real! Push-Up Liner and Mascara are, as well as any other waterproof make-up products you might use.


You can also use a cotton swab with a tiny amount of the They're Real! Remover on the tip of it to quickly fix any eye make-up mistakes, which is especially great when you first try the They're Real! Push-Up Liner out. The They're Real! Remover is also suitable for those with sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.


Benefit They're Real! Mascara* Was £19.50 Now £17.50

As I mentioned in my last post (link here), the only mascara that I've ever paid more than £10 for or bought outwith the drugstore, was Benefit's They're Real! Mascara. It has been a firm favourite of mines ever since but as I mentioned above, it really is a pain to remove (without the They're Real! Remover). So for quite a while it has been reserved for special occasions only.

The mascara itself is a true black shade which truly adds volume and length to the lashes without having to apply several coats. But what I really adore about this mascara is the wonderful wand. Firstly it's rubbery instead of the traditional brushes that I typically gravitate towards but what makes this wand something special is the fact that the bristles also appear at the top of the wand. This means you can really catch every lower lash, which is something I normally struggle to achieve. 

I also spied that Look Fantastic currently have the They're Real! Mascara on offer for only £17.50 at the moment (link here). So I would be sure to snap up that deal if you want to try out all three of the They're Real! products, which I honestly can't recommend enough.


I think to buy the three products separately would be to do yourself and Benefit an injustice. If you go for the brand new Push-Up Liner I would definitely recommend picking up the Remover or at least a sample of the Remover from your nearest Benefit counter as you might find the liner a bit of a nightmare to remove without it. Same goes for the mascara.


So what do you think of the They're Real! trio? Have you tried any of these products? If so, what do you think of them? Will you be picking up any of the They're Real! products any time soon?

  3. I was so excited about this eyeliner when I first saw it mentioned on the Benefit press release, but there have been such mixed reviews that I could just never justify spending that kind of cash on it. Such a shame, because I am so curious ha xx

  4. I like the mascara; although it is pesky to remove and I still feel like my lashes aren't entirely clean after taking it off. I've heard so many mixed reviews about the liner. I'm just not sold on it as I've heard it's so dry and has a tendency to flake. Great review though and lovely pictures!

    Effortlessly Excessive.
