I’ve decided to change Makeup Monday’s to Beauty Tuesdays. I was seemingly never able to get a beauty post done by Monday’s so this makes more sense.
I’m constantly searching for the perfect mascara that will give me long, thick separated lashes; the kind others will be envious of. I want people to ask if I’m wearing false lashes, not because my mascara looks fake, but because my lashes look so lush and luxurious.
My current(and long-time) favorite is Dior’s Diorshow Blackout. This mascara is AH-mazing. I love how it makes my lashes look and it goes on dark without clumping in just a few coats. But of course, I am still on the lookout for something that might be EVEN better.
When I heard about Benefit’s newest mascara called They’re Real, I just KNEW I had to try it!
I got a sample size for $10 from Sephora and I pitted it head-to-head(or rather eye-to-eye) against my favorite Dior mascara.
Here’s my eyes completely sans any makeup just so you can see where we are starting from.
I applied Diorshow to my right eye and They’re Real to my left.
I honestly don’t see much, if any difference between the two mascaras. And I feel as if the Benefit mascara didn’t go on as smoothly and easily as the Diorshow.
The verdict? The Benefit They’re Real mascara is a very dark black which I love, but it just isn’t fantastic enough to make me want to switch from my current favorite.
If you’re looking for a new mascara, either one is really good; I just had more of a loyalty to Diorshow and that’s what I’m going to stick with!
