|BENEFIT'S : TINTED LASH PRIMER AND THEY'RE REAL MASCARA|
In Elle October's issue, except from Alexa Chung sporting the front cover was a preview of November's gift. Which is ...... the Benefit's tinted lash primer. There are a lot of lash primers on the market from your drug stores such as ELF's lash primer and L'Oreal Paris's False Lash Mascara which is a 2 in one primer and mascara to your high end versions such as Dior's The Little Black Primer sporting Kendall Jenner. Benefit has two extremely successful mascara's that has launched in the last couple of years, the They're Real and Roller Lash and I do happen to own both of them.

Back to the tinted lash primer, it sports a brown colour and can be worn alone as a brown mascara for a casual look. The brush wand is really easy to work with and grabs onto every eyelash, but instantly makes me pre-curled eyelashes droop, this is due to the wet formula - having Asian eyelashes, I really don't need to say more, nothing works. The application brush is also slightly smaller than the They're Real application brush and really helps separate and define my eyelashes.

Did it lengthen or volumise? It definitely did give me a little length but nothing that my current mascara won't do. Applying the They're Real mascara on top, it became clumpy you can describe it as volumising, but this doesn't make me flock to the shops to buy it - not a fan of the spider legs look.
My overall verdict: 'It's me not you.' Sorry Benefit, you didn't make it. I find it so difficult to get mascaras to hold my curls and lengthen, I find the formula difficult to work with, and curling your eyelashes after you put mascara on can really break your lashes. Maybe I should let the mascara dry out a bit? We'll see.
Did you pick up Elle's November issue?
