Benefit's They're Real! Mascara - Fiberwig 2.0?

Anyone remember Fiberwig mascara? It was an import from Japan and was all the rage a couple years ago. I remember trekking to the local Sephora with my college roommate and elbowing ladies to get my hands on a tube of Fiberwig. I was impressed. It was a grade A mascara that actually elongated my lashes. It was a b*tch to take off, but it was worth it if you liked that long, sort of wet-spider-leg looking lashes. Our love affair was short because I thought it was possibly thinning out my lashes IT AND WAS RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE!

Anyway, Benefit's They're Real! mascara is pretty cool. Above is a picture of me wearing it. You get the length you desire, while your lashes look pretty full. I don't wear it everyday, because, well, I do own 6 different tubes of mascaras, so I gotta spread the love. I will say that I sometimes use it with another mascara, so I get the length and width I desire. My Revlon Custom Eyes mascara has a great brush that separates the lashes. Combined with They're Real!, I get to lash out all I want.

Like Fiberwig, it's got this paint-on-lash feeling after it's been applied. It's also super expensive. $22 a pop? GTFO! At most, mascara shouldn't cost more than $12-$15! What do you think? What's your favorite mascara?
