A Dupe for Benefit They're Real Mascara!


Greatest news ever! I'm pretty sure nearly everyone has heard of or tried Benefit They're Real Mascara. It was all the rage when it came out a couple of years ago. Since it's debut, Benefit has added an eyeliner to the line as well. 

But the real star, as many of you know, is the mascara. I'll admit, I drank the kool-aid with the Benefit mascara and it tasted delicious! It's always hard to splurge on mascara when there are so many good drugstore options available. So, while I do think the Benefit mascara lives up to it's claims, I can't say I will be repurchasing it now that I've found an amazing drugstore dupe! Dun dun dun! This wondrous discovery is Maybelline's Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara

This mascara works AMAZINGLY on my lashes! I don't know if it's just a good formula or if it just gels with my lash type (average fullness & length, natural curl to them) but wow, I think I like this formula BETTER than They're Real!

The brush is definitely a little bit different but the effects are the same. I will say, having a ball on the end of the wand would really come in handy for getting the inner corner lashes, but that's the only advantage to They're Real. The Rocket delivers instant lift, separation (are we talking about cleavage?) and volume to the max! 

Have you guys tried this mascara? Let me know if you love it too and if you have any other amazing drugstore dupes!
