This was my second attempt to love Benefit Mascara, but alas…..it is pointless. I realize Benefit mascara is the best seller at the moment (They’re Real is actually the best seller), but it just doesn’t make me happy.
What’s good about it:
- Adds a certain amount of length to lashes
- I’m thinking…….
- Still thinking………..
What’s not good about it:
- Difficult to remove
- Brush too large for my personal taste
- Rubs off around my eyes
- Also flakes as the day goes on
- The price is fairly high for the average girl
I know it sounds like I hate this mascara, but I don’t. I tried this one after consulting a salesperson at Ulta about all the reasons why I didn’t like Benefit They’re Real Mascara. She recommended BADGal mascara instead. In fact, when I first tried They’re Real the salesperson tried to talk me into BADGal to begin with.
The only big difference I can tell between the two is that BadGal has a huge brush. Now, I know that some people just love those huge brushes. If you are one of those people, then this might be the one for you.
Since Loreal changed the Voluminous formula I have really been floundering in the mascara department. I have tried several different versions, but was about to give up on ever finding a mascara that made me happy again.
However, I was recently perusing Amazon reviews and found a new contender. I had visions in my head of another let down. I could see myself throwing it into my “secondary” makeup bag, where it would probably never be used again.
I decided to give it a try anyway, and I am overjoyed that I did! It costs less that half of Benefit and works great so far.
Believe it or not…..it’s Revlon Grow Luscious mascara! (I also bought the plumping version of this one, but I haven’t tried it yet. Giving this one the full trial first.)
