While sifting through Cult Beauty’s summer sale this morning, we noticed a makeup-artist recommended mascara on sale. Benefit’s Real Big Steal includes a full-size They’re Real mascara, as a well as a mini. It’s now £17, down from £23. It’s worth noting that outside of this bundle, a regular-size They’re Real retails for £23, and the mini for £12, so the saving is further increased.
“This product definitely lives up to its name,” Amy Zdunowski-Roeder told us. She promises that from the first coat, your lashes will appear dramatically thicker and fuller. “The formula is long-wearing, non-smudging, and won’t dry out.” Plus, the uniquely designed brush has tips on the end, which works with the product to separate and define lashes. The domed brush features staggered bristles that grab lashes from the root, while the rich, long-wear pigment keeps your lashes looking long all day. Since it can be difficult to remove, you’ll want to use a gentle, oil-based remover, like Glossier Milky Oil, a personal favourite of our own Rio Viera-Newton.
