Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

Hello everyone,

I guess by this point everyone already heard about the amazing product from Benefit called They're Real! Push-Up Liner. This lash hugging gel liner pen is famous for being so friendly to the lashes, instead of being a frenemies to the lashes, they hugged them tightly and soar. Really?

Before we're going to that point let's read some details from


Why we love it!

It’s the FIRST EVER lash-hugging gel liner in a pen! This matte black gel formula won’t smudge, budge or dry out, and the innovative soft AccuFlex™ Tip hugs your lashline from corner to corner. The closer the line, the bigger the eye!

24-hour* & waterproof
*Instrumental test on 19 panelists    

91% said it was longwearing*
88% said it hugged the lashline*
84% said eyes looked visibly larger*
*Results observed in a consumer panel survey on 32 women after 2 weeks

How to apply

For first-time use
To prep the pen, remove the AccuFlex™ tip protector & discard. Twist base until gel appears on tip. Wipe off excess.

For daily use
Wipe leftover gel off AccuFlex™ tip before each use to get fresh liner every time. Slowly twist base until a tiny amount of gel appears on tip. Rest the tip on the base of your lashes and guide along your lashline from either the inner or outer corner. The angled AccuFlex™ tip works both ways.

Beauty tip

Double the REAL! Wear they’re real! push-up liner and they’re real! mascara together for beyond longer lashes AND bigger-looking eyes.


All the information provided on the packaging is enough and convincing, so I did my share and try it. My first impression is the tip. Look at that!


It is so flexible and I must say, as an eyeliner, it felt so comfortable to be used #kickingthosesharppencils. I really impressed on their ideas in making this AccuFlex. Oh yes, I'm actually a big fan of Benefit since they are first arrived in Singapore back then when I'm still living there. I love the names of the products, the cuteness, wittiness, and so lady like at the same time. I meant lady in the 50's whose like doing pin ups, so perky and gazilion miles away from boring.


Now, back to the product, look at the details of the tip, it's not like any other eyeliner, no brush, just that rubbery like edge with tiny hole in the middle for the eyeliner to come up. And almost every time I want to use it, I pre-clean the tip, as it is waterproof, the product will harden and we need the fresh one to come out without anything blocking its way.


I usually use a tissue and pressing here and there making sure the inside also clean, and again, look how flexible it is  ^__^


After a few twist on the end part of the pen, the fresh liner comes out, here's how it is. It's not as 'liquid' as a liquid eyeliner, it's not as 'creamy' as an eyeliners in pots, it's like as 'crayony' as crayon eyeliner does, and not as dry as pencil eyeliner is. To be precised it is more like a liquid crayon....does it make any sense? But it is. The gel is just like that, and it dries up almost instantly, which make using They're Real! Push-Up Liner so wonderful, no fan, no holding the eyes in the weird position so we wont blink is needed.


And does it waterproof?

Yup, it is. The lines are made to stay. Once set it set pretty well. It is also smudge resistant, suitable for long wear and does feel suitable for those areas on the lashes, I do meant directly on the lashes.

But, still, a product has its limit, if you're someone like me, very active, in terms of activity and very active glands ....ehm sweat gland near the area where the liners are, it does become flaky and comes off when the sweats and oils join forces in fighting the gel. So I'm probably those 9 percent of people who disagree in long wearing.

Nevertheless, if you're a fine gal, who sweat less than me, or have non oily lids or perhaps less oily lids than me, you should be very happy, as this is would be that perfect product for you. Am I refusing to use it again? Nope! It is still one of the best thing I ever try and will keep on using it as it does have a resistant power which are better than many other brand.

Tips: If you happen to have a sweaty oily lids like mine, no worries, here's a thing that you can do, before applying the eyeliner, dust just a bit of loose powder or fine baby powder on the lids, just a sprinkle dust will do, you can use cotton but for precision. Remove the excess using a very fine brush.

Those dust powder will help absorbing the sweat and oils so the liners can stay on longer. Do be careful in dusting, as it is so close to the eyes. And don't use to much as you never want those gel to become a chunk-like consistency on your lids.


a great product not to be missed.
