Beauty | Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Hi Everyone,

So I gave into the hype and purchased the raved about Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner, I know it was definitely due to all the reviews that have been floating around the internet. All of the reviews seemed to be giving this new eyeliner the big thumbs up so it was added to my basket to purchase.

At £18.50 this is definitely the most expensive eyeliner I have purchased so I had high hopes that it would live up to the reviews that I had seen. The tag line on the product is that it is "so easy it's criminal", well I thought all my prayers had been answered and that I would finally be able to do the perfect winged eyeliner! Hallelujah! Well so far this has failed me...after twisting and twisting the bottom of the pen for what felt like an eternity the gel finally started to come out the nib. Hurrah! Now for application, so I was hoping for it to be easy like Benefit said, well it wasn't. I found that I had to press down on my eyelid hard in order to get a thick enough line that was continuous, it seemed flaky and just didn't apply at all well compared to other eyeliner. So first impressions were not good at all. This then meant that it was placed back in the box and left on my dressing table for a good week before I decided to re try.

The gel dries extremely quickly, so you have to be super quick at applying. Which often meant that my eyeliner looked uneven (every girls worse nightmare) it certainly does take practise. As I'm a get ready super quick kinda girl, especially Monday - Friday, this doesn't work for me at all and doesn't apply as easy as what I need it to when I'm rushing out the door for work! I won't even start on the nightmares I was having when trying to do winged eyeliner.

Well would I recommend this, in a nutshell, no. Unless you've got a lot of money to waste on products and you want to try it then get it, but if you are looking for a great gel/liquid felt tip eyeliner I would recommend the Bourjous MegaLiner - half the price and sooooo much easier to apply, even for winged eyeliner.

Sorry Benefit, you can fling me in jail for this but I won't be rushing out to purchase this again.

Have you tried Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner? What are you thoughts on it? Love it, Hate it?
