New Buy - Benefit They're Real Push-Up Eye Liner

I have been a fan of Benefit for as long as I can remember. I love the iconic retro design and the effectiveness of their products. Over the years I have used Bad Gal mascara, They're Real mascara, Coralista blush, Rockateur blush and Pore Professional amongst others. So when I went shopping in House of Fraser in Cardiff this week I was tempted by the new They're Real Push-Up Liner, and on a whim I bought it. 

They're Real Push-Up Liner, is a new product out that they are marketing as a lash hugging gel liner.





I find eye liner never lasts very long on me before it smudges, so I was keen to try this as it has a waterproof formulation and it sounded easy to apply. 

I am a big fan of eyeliner, my eyes are dark brown and I feel it emphasises my best feature and makes my eyes look bigger. After all, a gal has to emphasise her best feature, doesn't she?

Firstly you remove the Accuflex tip protector and twist the base of the pen to deliver the liner to the tip. Then you simply draw the line across the lash line. The tip is angled for ease of use and there is an instruction leaflet supplied. It is up to you how thick you draw the line, or if you want to flick the end for a cats eye look.

Using the eyeliner for a natural look

So I had a go. Was it easy to use you may be wondering? A resounding yes from me. I was happy with the look the very first time. It was not messy to use at all, the tip applied exactly the amount needed. For best results I would apply it with a slow and steady hand. It dries quickly but I added a little extra liner to the edge of my eyes for a more pronounced look. If you are wanting a winged look I would suggest practice makes perfect. Check out how to apply it here.

It is not a cheap liner, at £18.50, however I do think you get for what you pay for most of the time, and it was certainly a quality product. It seemed to stay in place all day with only a tiny amount of smudging, which is brilliant for me. I removed it with a little bit of effort and baby wipes although they do recommend They're Real strip-down waterproof remover. 

I would recommend wiping the tip after you use the liner and you have the look you wanted, but before recapping. This is because If you do not wipe the pen a small amount of eyeliner clings to the tip and when it dries it can flake. This will ensure you will get a better result when you apply the gel liner the next time.

I think this is a perfect product to add to your holiday shopping list, due to its waterproof and long lasting nature, whether you are drinking cocktails in Miami or clubbing in Manchester you will still look 'da bomb' or in the words of my mother - the bees knees! You can buy Benefit from Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser and other good department stores.

  4. I use liquid eyeliner every day, and it's really difficult to get a decent one. It's worth paying a bit more, in my view. I'll definitely give this one a try.
