Fiesta’s Finds: Benefit Cosmetics ‘They’re Real! Push-Up Eyeliner

By  |  6 Comments

I spent all of 2013 perfecting my liquid eyeliner technique and now that I’ve got it down Benefit Cosmetics comes out with They’re Real! Push-Up Liner – the easiest makeup tool since lipgloss.

My biggest struggle with eyeliner has been getting the liner to hug my lash line – their AccuFlex™ tip easily solves that problem. You can literally press it right above your lash line, glide it across and be done in seconds without having to go back and fill in gaps or straighten rocky edges! Since it’s a gel as opposed to a liquid you do have to be cautious and apply it in light enough doses that it doesn’t dry out into little clumps on your face. That’s not cute.

Benefit claims their new liner make your eyes look bigger, and I found this to be true. From the first use, my eyes looked so wide I felt like I didn’t even need mascara! Naturally I put it on anyway and I feel like on lazy days this liner and a little mascara may be all the makeup I need!

On the first use you’ll have to twist the base about 10 times before anything actually comes out of the AccuFlex™ tip. It’s annoying, but once you get past the initial 10 clicks it’s super easy to use. My only concern is that with a gel that comes from a twisting base instead of a pencil to sharpen or a liquid that’ll begin to slowly dry, I won’t know when my liner is running out until it’s too late!

They’re Real! Push-up Liner will be available at, Birchbox, and Benefit Cosmetics starting Friday June 27 at 7amEST/10amPST, and in stores Sunday June 29. At $26 it’s only slightly more than They’re Real! Mascara but considering the results well worth every penny!
