CMU Senior Alivia Ferguson is thankful for Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real lengthening mascara. This product can be found at Ulta and Sephora for $25.

“I typically don’t wear a lot of make up to begin with, so mascara is a quick and easy go-to that makes a huge difference. I always want my lashes to be the longest possible, and They’re Real is the only mascara that allows my lashes to reach their full potential. It’s pricey, but I love it,” Ferguson said.
