I'd been wanting to try Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner since it came out. I'd done my research, and decided that I wanted to give it a go, even though there were totally mixed reviews. My two favorite beauty vloggers hated it, but I still had a glimmer of hope. I liked the way the swatch looked when I played with it at Sephora, and the associate sold me on the method of applying it. Since I'm such a fan of gel liners, and the ones in pots usually dry up on me, I thought this product might be a good fit for my needs.
The rubber tip is one of the major selling points to this product, as it claims to help in smooth application and helping to get the liner all the way down to the lash line. I was a little afraid at first, as it seems a little too flimsy, but it was easy to get used to.
There were also some instructions included, which were helpful. I learned that it's important to apply in a fluid motion, instead of attempting to use the applicator like a brush or liner pencil.
This is the result of my first ever use of the product. Not too bad, right? It's not perfect, but I'm sure with practice I'll have it down in no time. It's fairly smooth, but requires a steady hand like all liner. Maybe it's not a miracle product, but I'm happy with the result it delivers. What do you think?
Overall, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
