Easy Liner: Benefit They’re Real Liner

Every morning when I have to wake up and leave the house I am faced with the same dilemma; eyeliner or more sleep. Usually sleep wins but I don’t think it’s a competition anymore now that I have found the new Benefit They’re Real Liner. Yes, this is another post about this eyeliner.

I was a little sceptical at first. How different could an eyeliner really be? I’ve tried hundreds of eyeliners from liquid and pencils to kijal and gel, I’ve tried lots of different nibs, brushes and formulas. I thought it was just going to be just another okay liner but it’s different in a great way!

They call it a Gel liner however it doesn’t come in a pot with a little brush but instead as a pen. You twist the product up from the bottom which releases the product from the Accuflex tip which allows you to apply the product very close to the lash line very easily. I think you have a lot of control with this eyeliner meaning you are less likely to end up with uneven widths or lengths.

I have also been very impressed by it’s staying power; I wore this to Wireless and it lasted through the rain, heat, sweat and ridiculous hayfever for 12hours+ even though I find my eyes very prone to smudging.

Since it’s a Benefit Eyeliner it isn’t cheap and retails for £18.50 but I’m already planning to repurchase! I would say skip on the £14.50 remover as any good waterproof makeup remover will get it all off.

Really in love with this eyeliner and I have recommended it to everyone, glad to see Benefit is more than just pretty packaging.

    I bought this eyeliner when it was released and was also skeptical at first! However, I am pleased to have been proven wrong 🙂 It did take a little getting used to (I made a real hash of my eyes the first time I tried it!) but now that I have the hang of it, this is definitely the eyeliner I reach for first. And as you say – really good lasting power xx

    I have been trying this out for a couple of weeks now and I'm still unsure!! I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't love it though so I will keep persisting with it!
