Free Sample of Benefit They're Real! Push-up Liner!

Free Sample of Benefit They're Real! Push-up Liner!

Be quick - only one week left! Benefit is currently offering you a completely free They’re Real Push-up Liner Deluxe Mini at their Boots Benefit Counters. All you need to do is take in an old eyeliner you have lying around (any brand) and swap it! There is no catch - it really is as simple as swapping your old liner for new. I brought my old and dried up No 7 eyeliner and the sales assistant didn't even look at it - I simply through it in the box and she gave me this sample.

I've read countless reviews of Benefit They're Real! Push-up Liner - starting from amazing at the very beginning of the hype and going down when it began to finish and the true nature of the product has begun to show. I admit I almost gave in to the hype myself and visited Benefit store with the intention to buy, but the extremely pushy sales assistant (who snubbed me completely when I told her I need to think about purchase and that I initially detested Benefit They're Real! Mascara) and the fact that this eyeliner was literally everywhere - on the blogs, Instagram, Twitter and even my Facebook I held my reins and decided to wait. Then stories about how fast the eyeliner dries out, it's hard to manoeuvre to achieve the perfect flick and clogs up easily began to spread and I was glad I didn't fork out £18.50 for an eyeliner - a product I rarely use.

However, when this free sample opportunity presented itself, I couldn't wait to try it out for myself and see what is it all about. As you can see the sample is super tiny (I saw on Twitter someone saying that it is the smallest eyeliner in the world and get definitely agree) - there's 0.1g of the product compared to 1.4g of the full-sized version. Obviously it also has innovative soft AccuFlex™ tip to hug the lashline from corner to corner. As an eyeliner veteran (in terms of trying them out, not wearing!), so far I've only found one which is super easy to manoeuvre and achieve a perfect flick - NYX The Curve Felt Tip Eye Liner (review) - and during my recent trip to Sephora I've found Sephora Smart Liner to be identical. As for Benefit creation - well I've only applied it once so far and I get it now why some people said in their reviews that you need to get the hang of it. But when applied it really does stay put throughout the day. Also, I'm not sure if I will be able to use it again, because the sample's cap simply doesn't close! When I've opened it for the first time I couldn't get to close it - plastic simply slides off the rubbery AccuFlex™ tip - very disappointing! Only after holding it for a couple of minutes it was closed. I know that it's supposed to be a free sample, but still I would expect to use it at least three-four times to form an opinion. In this case, I have a feeling it will simply dry out before I get a chance to use again.
