Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner* £18.50

Possibly one of the most exciting and hyped up launches of 2014 so far is the Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner. I'm a big Benefit fan so when they announced that a 'gamechanging' product was on it's way I thought about it pretty much every day until it was announced! Since attending the launch I have been using the liner almost every day to see if it lives up to the hype.

The They're Real Push Up Liner is an extension to the bestselling mascara and starts a little family along with the new They're Real Remover that I'll review separately in the future. The packaging mirrors the They're Real Mascara, which I'm a big fan of. The eyeliner is a gel formula in a pen applicator with an angled Accuflex tip that helps to 'hug your lashline' so you can get as close to your lashes as you want too. It has a screw cap lid meaning that the gel won't dry out when you close the liner properly.

The bottom of the pen twists up to dispense the eyeliner, it's a creamy but dry and thick formula that will take a lot of getting used to if you aren't used to a gel liner. It's a matte, jet black liner that only needs one coat for a truly opaque finish. The Accuflex tip is slightly flexible with a sharp angle, the tip is very thin so you can create a line as thin or thick as you want too. You can get right up to the lash line and in the inner corner, it also is very easy to do a winged look, something I've always wanted to master!

Some days I use this and find it so quick and simple that I could cry with happiness, other days it can be a bit more tricky if I get the amount of liner I twist up wrong. The easiest way to apply the liner is by using small strokes across the lid instead of trying to do one fluid line. My first few attempts were quite messy so it's definitely a practice makes perfect thing, the more I am using it the more I am loving it.

My favourite thing about this is how long it lasts, I can put this on at 7am and it isn't going to go anywhere til when I take it off! The photo above was actually taken 6 hours after I applied it. Once it's applied it isn't going to budge or move around unless you make a deliberate attempt to smudge it (which you'd need to be firm to do!) They're Real Mascara is known for being hard to remove but I don't have any problems with getting this off.

For eyeliner pro's this is going to be one of the best products to come out of 2014 but for newbies this may also be a good place to delve into the eyeliner world.

The Benefit They're Real Eyeliner costs £18.50 and is out officially June 28th but might have sneaked onto counters already.

    1. It's definitely a different feel to normal gel liners, the matte finish does make it look different too. It's a love or loathe one but go give it a try on counter or ask for a sample!x

  4. I like this liner, but agree not knowing how much will pop out of the applicator can make it tricky and some days its super easy and some days requires more patience!

  7. I can't apply eye liner at all- pens, gels, pencils, all go wrong. I'm hoping this will be my saviour!

  10. Personally i think liquid eyeliner is a very easy product for brands to create, what's tricky is learning how to apply is properly and evenly each time. I would love to try this eyeliner but I was pretty disappointed with the They're Real Mascara, i really do hope i like the eyeliner as i usually adore benefit's products!

    1. Liquid eyeliner is definitely very easy to bring out so it's nice to see a gel formula launch.
      Give it a go, may surprise you!x

  11. I have heard lots of mixed reviews about this and was unsure whether to try it. However your review has literally won me over because I love gel liners and I apply my gel liner with an angled brush but not its like 2 in 1 which is perfect. I really need to get used to winged liner too as I'm not too good myself. Loved this post, so helpful:-)

  14. I keep hearing so many good things about this eyeliner and I'm getting more and more tempted to try it! I love that it's long lasting... I've tried so many that smudge really bad and last no time at all.
