Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

I'm sure over half of you have heard of - if not tried the infamous "They're Real" mascara from Benefit which has taken the world by storm. Apparently it is the UK's best selling mascara and rightly so, I am such a massive fan of the mascara so it seemed only fair that I would give it's sister product a try! 

 Gel eyeliner is just something I never tried. Usually it involves the pot, the brush and a steady hand that I don't have unfortunately! Since I have hooded eyes and winged eyeliner takes a lot of work to look ok on me, it was just too much hastle to bother with. Enter Benefit who just takes a job which can be so much fuss and turn it into something even I can handle. The Push-Up liner is basically a gel eyeliner in pen form. Revolutionary no? You simply have to twist the bottom and it pushes the product out through the perfectly shaped nib. The nib itself is pointed which makes doing that winged out flick that we all love, completely quick and easy! The formula itself is amazingly smooth. The gel glides onto the eyelid making it really easy to create an even line on the first application.

Since I have hooded eyes (incase you hadn't heard the 500 other times I've mentioned it) I find alot of other eyeliners that I wear on my upper lash line transfer to the top of my eyelid which is not the look I want to go for after spending ages trying to get it to look even. Thankfully this is not a problem with this! Like the mascara once its on it is on! This stuff does not budge until you want it to - which in Ireland where watery eyes may be an everyday occurrence thanks to the wind, rain, extreme sun or anything else the weather decides to throw at us - is a very good feature to have! 

You can vary your look from a thicker line to a very discreet lash hugging line. Maybelline apparently have a dupe for this beauty from Benefit which I am half-tempted to give a go. But if you have an "L Plate" for eyeliner like I do then you need this in your life! Priced at €25 and available online here!


  1. I bought this the other day and I'm yet to try it. Sounds fab from your review. xx


  2. I really am curious to try this! I have hooded eyes too and it's an absolute pain. I can't hack gel eyeliner or do a perfect winged eye, so it might be worth giving it a try x

  3. This sounds amazing, I'm not very good at applying liner so I hope this will help me x
