Benefit They're Real Sexy On The Run Mascara & Eyeliner Kit Review

I have various thoughts about Benefit. Because while I enjoy their products, I find them overrated.

Their products tend to be average in above-average clothing. Their packaging being their biggest selling point. It's sleek, fun and girlish with a playful twist. Attention-grabbing while said-product remains average. Not bad but not the best. 

Perhaps that's why I got so excited when Benefit They're Real! Sexy On The Run Mascara & Eyeliner Kit arrived. A smirking lady, hiding all those secrets within her. All the best of Benefit in one box. 

So how is it?

Benefit They're Real! Sexy On The Run is SGD$56 (US$28) in Sephora. It holds their most popular products, containing four mini versions of Benefit's They're Real series. This little kit is compact and travel-sized. Perfect when you're on the run. (Ba dum tss)

The kit features two Benefit They're Real! Deluxe Mascara in Jet Black and Beyond Brown. I prefer mini versions of mascara than the actual size. It has the same shelf life for only half the price. While I don't use Beyond Brown (my sister claimed it), I love Jet Black. This little bottle being my third in five years.

Whilst that is my third mascara bottle, Benefit They're Real! Push Up Liner is my second. It has one of the best gel formulas I've ever used. I purchased their gel liner a few years ago to mixed reception. Despite the amazing formula, lasting all day with little fallout, the application is horrible. The tip makes it difficult to create a consistent line. One fatal flick, and you'll end up with Winehouse wings.    

To help remove all the makeup, the set also includes Benefit They're Real! Remover. It removes all the heavy duty makeup not even acetone can wipe off. The product given is minuscule (0.25ml) compared to the full-sized bottle (50ml). I'm wary of emptying it, only using a pea amount of the remover every other day.

So should you buy it?

It is not a set for all. Despite containing the best of Benefit's They're Real! series,  I don't find it necessary. Only the gel liner and mascara seem worth it to me. The makeup remover contains too little for actual use and I doubt anyone will use brown mascara unless it's for a natural look.

In all, this is a gift for a makeup lover, that makeup lovers wouldn't buy for themselves.

So what's your favourite Benefit product?
