Don't Trust the Hype: Benefit "They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner"

This review is long over-due.

A few months ago Benefit came out with "THEY'RE REAL PUSH UP EYELINER", and everyone went bonkers over it and bought themselves one. I followed close suit, and purchased one myself. Being a frequent Cat-Eye "repper" I thought this product would make my life easier. 


Upon opening the packaging, I would say that the product looks very cute, and very sturdy. 
 I couldn't wait to try it out as soon as I yanked it out of the box!

 I read directions and started to turn the bottom to help the product come out of the top. It takes about 30 twists for stuff to come out! If you turn it too much, you have an excess amount of eyeliner slowly oozing out as well.. so that is CON #1

#2 Upon putting the product on my eyelid, it was very THICK. The product, along with the rubber angle "brush" would pull on my skin and would not apply smoothly. There were spots and streaks. And when you have blond lashes like me, this is not an acceptable option. I had to apply a different eyeliner to coverup the spottiness, because if you apply too much of this it turns into a cakey mess.


In Conclusion, if you wish to blow $25 dollars on a "precision" eyeliner, I would not recommend purchasing Benefit Push-Up Liner.

I would lean more towards KAT VON D Tattoo Liner. It is less expensive and very easy to apply. 

Thanks For Reading!!
