Happy New Year, love muffins! So with my last order to Sephora, I received a sample of the new Benefit They're Real! Tinted Lash Primer and couldn't wait to try it out! I'm a huge, huge fan of Benefit's They're Real! Mascara so I was excited to try the primer and see how it matches up to others.
So this primer comes in the shade mink brown only (for now) for a super gorgeous natural tint to your lashes. It can be worn by itself to define and tint your lashes or under your favorite mascara for a huge boost on your lash length and separation. The consistency of this primer is very light and gel-like. It conditions the lashes with Provitamin B5. It also boasts that it leaves your lashes so soft that you can apply mascara up to six hours later. 

The Custom ExtraFlex brush is specially formulated to separate lashes and evenly apply the primer.

Before / After

How gorgeous and wispy are they!? So natural. This is exactly what I look for in a mascara - nonetheless a primer. I actually prefer this without a coat of mascara over it. I did try this with a mascara over it (Jordana Extreme Mascara) and it came out a little clumpy. I just wasn't a fan but this primer by itself, man, it's amaze. Super even application with the wand and dried fairly fast. I didn't experience any "raccoon" eyes or flaking through the day. Thumbs up! 

PS. I know this might sound weird but even though I really like this primer, I do have to note that this is a sample size and I have found that sometimes samples vs. the full size are completely different. Weird, right? Bottom line: I like this enough to try the full size but am aware they may be completely different formulas. I have no clue why that happens but have noticed it before, so just a little warning :)
