“They’re Real” Push-Up Liner
Today’s “gotta have it” beauty essential is Benefit Cosmetics new “They’re real” pushup eyeliner. This liner is different from other eyeliners because it has a soft gel applicator for bigger looking eyes.
Below Benefit Cosmetics description of the liner :
“Double the REAL! Wear they’re real! push-up liner and they’re real! mascara together for beyond longer lashes AND bigger-looking eyes.
It’s the FIRST EVER lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! This matte black gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex™ Tip hugs your lashline from corner to corner. The closer the line, the bigger the eye!
Twist base once to “push up” gel liner to tip. Resting the AccuFlex™ tip on the base of your lashes, slowly guide along your lashline from the inner or outer corner. The angled AccuFlex™ tip works both ways.”
So I caved in to the hype and pre ordered & bought the liner at my local Macy’s store at the Benefit Cosmetics counter, and when I went to pick it up, I endeup buying more unnecesary cosmetics for my never ending collection ( fret not, I will tell you all about in another post soon).
The cat eye (or winged) look is one that only a few master it (I am not one of the few). Everyone and their mother wants to wear the cat eye liner look, but like me, they know it takes a tremendous amount of skill and time (and patience) to recreate such look. So apparently with Benefit’s new liner and the soft gel applicator we mere mortals can easily achieve the fabulous cat eye look!
Last Friday night I had to go out to a bar & I completely forgot my makeup bag, so I had no makeup (the horror!) but somehow I had my new “They’re real” push-upeyeliner in my bag; LIFESAVER!!! I had literally no time to dress up or anything, or to even begin to attempt to do the “cat eye” look with it, so I just applied the eye liner as I normally would, and I have to say I was surprisingly impressed. The thick gel applicator really works. The gel is not hard, but once it gets dry (and the lady at Benefit’s counter had warned me of this) there’s no going back so beware. My eyeliner lasted throughout the whole night (no reapply needed) and I was outdoors and the night was super hot and humid. Did I mention that I felt liked my eyed did look bigger? Suffice it to say, that the liner did NOT dissappoint. So what are you waiting for? Go get it now and tell me all about it! Benefit Cosmetic’s “They’re Real” Push-up liner is priced at $24.00, and its available for purchase here: They’re real push-up liner & here: Benefit Cosmetics.
