Review: Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Colored Liners

Benefit has experienced tremendous success with its They’re Real Mascara and Push-Up Liner, so it should come as no surprise that brand-new colored versions of these beloved products have launched! The Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner ($24) is now available in Beyond Brown (warm, mid-tone brown), Beyond Purple (eggplant), Beyond Blue (deep navy) and Beyond Green (forest green).

For those who have tried this eyeliner formula before, you know it is budge-proof (an oil-based makeup remover is basically the only way to go), making these liners ideal candidates for summer beauty. The gel texture is on the drier side, meaning it will set relatively quickly, but not so rapidly that you won’t be able to perfect your application beforehand.

If you loved the original black formulation, you’ll find a similar experience with these coloured liners. One observation we found in our testing was that Beyond Brown was a little easier to work with in the application process, but generally speaking, these liners are an excellent way to interject some colour into your routine, especially if black liner creates a harsh contrast against your skin (looking at you, fair-eyed friends!).

If you found this eye liner to be a bit challenging to work with, it may not be the best fit for you, but if you’re a pro at doing winged liner and appreciated this unique delivery system of gel liner, then give these colored liners a try. It’s definitely a formula/applicator that gets easier to use with practice. While it’s not the most forgiving eyeliner ever, if you master the technique, it’ll look great in a single sweep.
