The REAL Deal

I am constantly on the quest for the perfect mascara.  It's definitely a tall order.  I need a long wearing, flake & smudge proof formula that gives dramatic volume AND definition.  I also like to wear several coats so it needs to build well.  OH and I need to be in love with the brush.  

One of my face client's, Paige, had me use this mascara on her while getting her ready for a party.  I was floored by how gorgeous it was on.  So when I was at Benefit getting my brows did, I decided to take a chance on it.   

This mascara is everything I've dreamt of.  So many times I have found gorgeous mascaras that are literally in pieces all over my face by the end of the day.  Not okay.  The formula is great AND this brush gets every little lash you didn't know you had.

Try it for your self!  The full size retails for $23 but you can go to Sephora and grab a mini version for $10.


  1. I love that there is a mini version to try out first!

    A new outfit post and photo diary from World MasterCard Fashion Week is up on Local & Opulent

  2. Shannon, have you tried the Bad gal mascara from Benefit as well? :)

  3. i liked how it went on too! But it gave me THE WORST raccoon eyes at night!! All of a sudden i had a waxy mess running every which way on my face, and this was after i used MUFE sens eyes remover. Did you have that problem?
    To me it's not worth the hassle getting it off every night.. So i stick to Lancome

  4. LOVE! I ran out and bought this immediately after seeing your post. Always looknig for the best way to get "la la lashes" without too much hassle. xo
