Purchased by Me
I did not hear of Benefit's latest gel eye liner pen until I was wandering in Sephora and saw it. It looked cool, and when I read the description of the product I decided to purchase it. Unlike many of the make-up bloggers and those who give tutorials on how to make a cat eye, I have yet to master this. And I am o.k. with this. As long as I could master a regular gel liner look, I felt as if I could blog about this liner.
According to the package of the product, it is 91% long wearing, 81% waterproof; 86% lashline hugging and 84% of the customers stated it made their eyes look visibly longer.
It has a rubber tip with a hole in the middle. You twist the base to push up the gel liner to the tip. Then slowly guide the tip along your lash line. The color is a very deep black with no shine. There is no mess because the texture is a lot like a gel product. However, it is not messy like some of the other liquid, pen-style liners. The product stays where you put it and gives you time to smudge the liner until it sets. It does not budge at all, which is pretty incredible considering my eyes tear like crazy from allergies. When you're done, it looks absolutely spectacular with mascara......almost like you're wearing false lashes.
I never would have thought you could create a product that is as user-friendly as liquid liners but as opaque and waterproof as gels. And yet here it is - They're Real seems to be a cute little baby of the two, inheriting mostly the best features from both parents (or worlds should I say).
Because I just recently starting using it, the one thing I don't know about is how long the pen will last, in other words how long it will take to dry up or go through all the product.
In the end, I think I will give this product an A. I like what it has to offer and have been pleased with the results.
