Beauty: Elle Magazine Freebie: Benefit They're Real Tinted Primer

Elle Magazine December 2015

Benefit They're Real Tinted Primer

This months freebie wonder product is a new product from Benefit, which is an exclusive product to Elle Magazine this month as the product isn't even out yet. I do love a magazine freebie, and I love Benefit products so I was really happy about this.

I give to you Benefit They're Real Tinted Primer. This tinted primer is designed to either be worn alone, or underneath another mascara to help give better definition to your eyes. 
Just like Benefit's They're Real mascara, this tinted primer has the same wand, and same consistency as the mascara. I do feel that it's *softer* and doesn't clump as easily as the mascara version though.

The TP is brown in colour (it's actually described as mink brown) which is great if you want to wear this alone for a natural look. 
Alone, it does last all day. It doesn't flake off or crumble yet is still surprisingly easy to remove. I found that with They're Real mascara it took a good scrubbing to remove it and a few of my eyelashes would follow but this Tinted Primer version comes off a charm - even with mascara on top.

And here's a comparison photo. In the top photo, the eye on the left has just the Tinted Primer on, while the right has nothing. The bottom photo, both have the Tinted Primer on as well as Benefit's Roller Lash mascara.

So what do I think of this new product? I like it. I think that it does make a difference to my eyes. I feel that my lashes have extra curl and less clumping, as well as more length. I've also worn this on its own and found that my eyes felt light, as if I wasn't wearing anything, yet looked like I had mascara on.
I can't wait for the full version to come out as I'll definitely be purchasing it.

What do you think? Waste of money or something worth investing in?



  1. I cant decide if I want it but, it looks really good and you can definitely tell a difference. x

  2. I got this when I bought Elle as well. I'm not sure if I'm 100% sold just yet. I guess that's why it came with the magazine. I definitely find it's better when I use it on it's own though. Great post! x


  3. This definitely does make a clear difference but it's still very subtle and natural looking which I like. I need to get my hands on Elle mag!
