Well hellooo new Benefit liner that people are going to go a bit mental for. The Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner is a new addition to the They’re Real family (which so far only consists of the extremely popular They’re Real Mascara) along with a remover designed to tackle the high pigmentation and strong hold of both the mascara and the liner.
The Push-Up Liner is a real game-changer as it’s a gel liner in a pen form. You twist the bottom and up pops enough liner to cover each eye, and the product itself feels and looks a bit like a soft k0hl liner. The tip is really interesting as it’s a slanted rubber tip with a small hole for the liner to come through. The rubber is flexible meaning you can achieve a multitude of different looks from super skinny to thick and vampy.
The remover is a cream formula that’s formulated to be powerful enough to remove the liner and mascara whilst still being gentle enough for sensitive eyes. Interestingly, it’s a thick cream rather than a liquid that you are supposed to saturate a cotton pad with, but I think you’d get through it way too quickly with that approach, so instead I apply a small amount to each eye and gently rub it over the made-up eye before wiping off with either tissue or cotton wool. It does leave a slight film so I would advise going over it with something more liquid to remove the film, but it is very good at removing both the liner and mascara quickly and easily.
I am extremely rubbish at applying eyeliner and I always have been; no matter how much I practice I can never get a good skinny line without the use of an extremely skinny liner and it has to be a very specific type of liner for me to be able to achieve a good line. I do believe that the Push-Up Liner can be amazing for achieving all sorts of fabulous liner techniques (and it’s worth pointing out that Lisa Eldridge thinks this liner is amazing) but I just can’t quite get it to do a skinny line, only thick lines. However, I’m optimistic that with a bit more practice I will be able to achieve a thinner line and I will report back when I’m there!
The Benefit Push Up Liner launches at the end of June for £18.50 and the Remover for £14.50. Benefit They’re Real Mascara is available now here – link – for £19.50.
