Now I remember why I don’t turn on the TV before I’ve done all my writing, editing, and all around important things. Lifetime Movies. How is one supposed to get anything done when 15 and Pregnant (starring a youthful Kirsten Dunst) is on? It’s like a black hole. You just get sucked in and then there’s no stopping it. One twisted movie after the next. Before you know it, it’s 5pm and you’re still in your jammies and they’re may be an entire bag of tortilla chips missing. Well, as you know (or maybe you don’t… in which case you’re missing out), a good Lifetime Movie will get even the staunchest soul working those tear ducts. So, you’re going to need some expensive mascara to cry off. That’s where my latest beauty find comes in.
Remember when I tried out Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Flared Mascara? Yeah, not so good. Well, I may have stumbled upon the Holy Grail of mascaras… maybe. I had heard a few people going on and on about Benefit They’re Real Mascara. Now, we all know how deep my love runs for Benefit Benetint… if I can expand on this love fest, game on. Below, check out my trial of Benefit They’re Real Mascara.
Now, when I tested out Benefit They’re Real Mascara the first time, I wasn’t sold. The texture isn’t so good the first couple of applications. I also didn’t realize it was making such a big difference until I tried it up against a fan favorite, Christian Dior Diorshow Extase (I’m wearing Benefit They’re Real on the left and Diorshow on the right). Whoa! This mascara is no joke. You may not be able to tell in these photos, but the difference is substantial.
Oh… but we’re not done here. Today’s a twofer. Because this mascara is so dramtic, you’re going to need a good makeup remover to get it off. Nope, not even a Lifetime Movie marathon or your average cleanser is going to get rid of this stuff. Behold NARS Makeup Cleansing Oil. This magic potion will not only banish your mascara, it will get rid of any and all traces of makeup. I have very sensitive eyeballs, and this doesn’t hurt or irritate my peepers a bit. It also won’t leave you shiny or greasy. Might I add the crowning glory? Looks great on your vanity. I call that a win, win, win… and who doesn’t like to win? Not me.
Now back to She Woke Up Pregnant.
