Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

I just got the new Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner and thought I would share my thoughts with you on it. Do I consider this product to be FAB or is it a total FLOP? 

I guess the best way to start this is breaking it down. I feel like I have a love hate relationship with this product and here is why....

  • It's SOOO MESSY! I can't touch this stuff without the gel liner getting all over my hands. That is extremely frustrating. It also ends up all over my face because it was all over my fingers! It comes with an orange plug, which I would recommend leaving in when you're not using it to help prevent the product from drying out. However, every time you unplug it or plug it back in, you end up getting the product all over you! 
  • You also have to get familiar with how much product to use. You twist up the bast to get the product to come out of the tip. It takes a bit of cranking at first, but then it will come. I like to wipe off the first of it and then start fresh with 1 click of product, this seems to go a long way for me and not be too much.
  • It also can be tricky to work with as it can dry fast, so you need to practice with it so you can get quick with it.
  • It looks BEAUTIFUL on! Once you've mastered how to hold the pen and how much product to use, the really ends up being a great eyeliner. I love that it is very pigmented. It is super black, which helps give it the look of a liquid liner. However, this is matte, so its not going to look glossy like a liquid liner would. It truly looks beautiful on, and for that reason, it is worth the mess.
  • Also, it is designed to be "lash hugging," which is why I think it helps to make the eyelashes look thicker and more full. 
The Controversy:
  • I've seen other YouTube videos on this and the thing most people seem to hate about it is that it is hard to get off. I think this is a positive thing as I don't want my eyeliner all over my face at the end of the day. Most people demonstrate that using soap and water can't remove it. They also mention that Benefit has come out with it's own makeup remover. That's terrific and all, but I don't want to spend extra money on the remover, that takes away my budget for a new product. Don't worry, I have found the answer! You need the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes! These wipes take it right off, I love these things!

My overall opinion is that the results I get from this eyeliner outweigh the things I dislike about it. I can put up with the messiness if I have my wipes handy. The reason I think it helps make my lashes appear more full is because this is supposed to be a "lash hugging" eyeliner. You can truly get right next to the roots and I believe this makes the eyelashes look thicker and more full!

So, with all that said, I would absolutely consider this product to be....
