The Real Steal Benefit: Great deal
If you have read my Wishlist of August, you might have noticed that Benefit “They’re Real” mascara was on it. Luck was on my side when I discovered a Benefit deal at Galeria Inno. They offered the “They’re Real” mascara and a sample sized “Push-up Liner” for € 24,25!
So for € 24,25 you’re basically getting a sample-sized Push-Up Liner and a bonus sample-sized make-up remover for free! The mascara contains about 8.5 g, so it’s a normal sized mascara. The Push-Up Liner is 0.36 g, so sample-sized. The remover is 1.5 ml, also sample-sized.
Here’s a little before and after. As you can see, the mascara really seperates my lashes and leaves them clump-free. They really make my eyes pop! At the end of the mascara wand -it’s like making magic, isn’t it?- there is this special dome top that allows you to lift up every lash, especially those in the corners of your eyes. This way the mascara also lengthens your eyelashes.

The Push-Up Liner is really easy to use. If you feel like you can’t get that perfect winged eye, this is a very handy tool to perfect that feline flick. Also, the eyeliner has a long-lasting formula, making it almost waterproof, but not a pain to remove. Since I tend to have oily eyelids, pencil eyeliners seem to slip and slide after a while. An eyeliner with a long-lasting formula just means one less thing to think about in the morning. Just twist the base to push the gel to the top and apply your eyeliner like you want. Here the normal sized eyeliner is shown, but I have a slightly smaller one. Sadly I didn’t make a picture with the eyeliner on, but I do have an outfit post coming up where I’m wearing the eyeliner. So stay tuned for the eyeliner!
The mascara and eyeliner can be removed by any make-up remover. The sample works great, although I feel that you can use any other (not necessarily waterproof) make-up remover. Again, here is the normal sized remover (50ml) pictured.

Although I said I would wait until my other mascaras are used up, I’m really glad I bought this “Real Steal”. Not only I got the mascara I wanted, I got to test Benefit’s Push-Up Liner and I must say it worked out pretty good. If my black eyeliners are used up, I might consider the Push-Up Liner as a next purchase (since it’s just so easy to get that perfect cateye!). Hopefully I will stick to this “promise” until another deal comes up or my other eyeliners are at least finished. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see…
Real steal benefit deal is valid as long as supplies last at Galeria Inno (Antwerp).
