A dupe for Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara…?
Yes, you read correctly! I think I’ve found a dupe for the Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. I feel that the Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara gives you a very similar result and for half the price.
Price: £8.00 v £19.50 for Benefit’s They’re Real – Boots (other stores may vary in price)
Wand: 5/5. I really like the shape of this wand as it gives your lashes great lift, making your eyes look more open, which is ideal for days where all you want to do is sleep but you have to get up for school/work and make yourself look presentable. The shape of the wand also allows the mascara to get right to the lash line, creating a fuller effect. Although the wand is plastic and I’ve had trouble with these types of mascara wands in the past…the Rocket mascara from Maybelline to be precise, the Lash Sensational wand doesn’t irritate me at all when applying.
The Formula: 5/5. I really like the formula of this mascara. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes for a perfectly natural look with one/two coats and for a more dramatic look, its easily buildable for those nights out.
Colour: 5/5. The colour of this mascara is really black which I love because it gives more definition to my lashes. Plus, when I wear thick liquid eyeliner and mascara together, I sometimes feel my lashes aren’t the main attraction…which I feel they should be but with this mascara I don’t have that issue. The colour and application of this mascara always makes sure my lashes are the centre of attention when it comes to my makeup look.
Is it Long Lasting? 5/5. This mascara never smudges or flakes under my eyes when I wear it for a full day. It looks the same from the moment I apply it to the moment I take it off. It has great staying power so I think this mascara would be great for the summer months when it gets hotter…and sweatier.
Overall Thoughts/Rating: 5/5. Overall I give this mascara a 5/5 rating because it’s great quality for a drugstore brand + I do truly believe it’s a dupe for the Benefit’s They’re Real, so if you are a fan of the Benefit mascara, I highly recommend giving the Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara a go.
