I bought this with high expectations and They're Real did NOT disappoint! It lengthens and separates my lashes. I usually have a problem with mascaras looking dry on my lashes throughout the day, but Benefit They're Real mascara gives a kind of "wet" and lush look that I love. I did curl my lashes with an eyelash curler once before applying the mascara, but it has held a curl for hours. It was definitely worth the $22 that I spent on this mascara!
