There seems to be a primer for everything these days, primers for things I didn't even know you needed a primer for! Such as lashes for example...I wasn't aware I needed to prime my lashes before applying my normal mascara but apparently you do. Lucky for me I'm subscribed to Elle magazine and the December issue came with a cute mini sample of the Benefit They're Real Tinted Primer, a whole nine weeks before the official launch of the full size version.

I've not tried the They're Real mascara before and I wasn't sure if the key to getting the primer to work well was to use it on top of its sister product but I used it under a couple of coats of the Roller Lash (one of my fave Benefit mascaras) and it seemed to work out ok.

The primer is designed to go on before your normal mascara (obviously!) and it will do all the separating, lenghtening and boosting work for you. The brush is a lovely thin one, which really grabs hold of the lashes and separates them really well. Once you pop your normal mascara on top it looks absolutely fab. The primer certainly helps it to 'pop' a lot more.

If you don't fancy big black fluttery eyelashes then the primer comes in a mink/brown shade so it can be worn on its own for a bit of a more natural look.

As someone who didn't even realise I needed to prime my eyelashes, I was quite impressed with the They're Real primer. My lashes don't have much curl to them and are very straight but the primer helps to grab the lashes really well and pull them up, giving them a bit of length as well as curl. I'll definitely be picking up the full size once it's released, will you?

  2. Ooh I haven't heard about this as of yet, interesting, like the sound that it adds a bit of curl.

  3. This sounds cool and it's so weird having a primer for everything. I do like the sound of it though and must see if I could get a sample.

  6. I think I'm going to try the mini before I make any big decisions about the full size, although you may just have swayed me to actually try out the primer, I hadn't even heard of it before!

    1. It's a great size mini as well so you can give it a good couple of tries before getting the full size!

  7. I've never tried this lash primer but I have recently started using a mini of the They're Real mascara from Benefit and I find that that too adds a really good curl to my lashes, and so much so that I no longer need to curl my lashes before hand which is such a time saver in the mornings so I think that you'd really like that too!

  8. There are literally primers for everything! This sounds like one of those products that's probably not a necessity but is a lovely addition to a makeup collection anyway. I really want to give it a go!

  10. I'm a big fan of They're Real, it's my favourite mascara, and although I think lash primers are a little unnecessary I decided I wanted to pick this up to try it. I haven't had any They're Real mascara for a while because of the price (and being broke and having a huge stash of mascaras to get through!) but now I really miss it because this is amazing and produces the same effect as the mascara but just isn't black or quite as dramatic. I still think it might be slightly unnecessary as a primer (why not just go for layers of mascara) but I do love it and would use it on its own as well as a primer x
