   Last week I made a Sephora order just to get my hands on a sample of what I feel like is the most hyped up beauty product of the year: Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner! I hadn't watched too many reviews on the product but from what I had heard is you either loved this liner or hated it. So obviously I needed to see which side of the coin I was on.
   You can see in my full First Impression & Giveaway video my initial reaction and experience with the liner and today I am just going to briefly go into my thoughts after the fact. I have now worn this liner about five or six times so I feel I can give a better review on it.
   The first time I wore this liner my biggest concern was the "flaking" some others had experienced after a few hours of wear. I made sure to pay a decent amount of attention to that, I myself experienced absolutely NO flaking at all. Worn both over Urban Decay Primer Potion and a MAC Cream Color Base: and even a shadow with no primer at all. The first time I wore this liner I wore it for over 12 hours and I didn't have any issues with smudging and flaking or anything like that.
   The application was pretty easy the first time I used it, and I loved the way the wings turned out; very pin-up-esque. It glided on with ease. It did say that one click of product would have you covered for one eye, but each time I used this I ended up using 3 clicks. The color was gorgeous, a very thick creamy matte black that didn't loose intensity throughout the day.
  The two cons to this product that I can find is number one: the price. At 22$ I think it is a little high, I think at $18 or even $20 it would seem a bit more reasonable to me. And also the removal process, after spending $22 on the full size I do not think it is justifiable to splurge on an eyeliner remover that coordinates with the liner. But DAMN this stuff is a bugger to take off. Most liners come off with ease, but this one I had to double soak it in remover.
   Overall I really do love this liner, and I can see myself purchasing this with Birchbox points or if it ever goes on special. Maybe I will get more addicted to it and find myself splurging on it before one of those options. I would definitely try it out if you have an opportunity to, speaking of that: don't forget to check out my video for a chance to win a sample size of the product!

What do you think of this liner? Worth the hype?
