Today I thought I would do a comparison post of 3 of Benefit's current mascaras and their effect on my eyelashes (basically a mini review of each)...
BADgal lash mascara is the oldest to be sold out of these three mascaras and to be honest I wouldn't of really either tried this hadn't it been for my mum. My mum hated using this mascara so she gave me her full size and a few sample sizes she had collected. She found it flakey and leaving her eyes look really black. However, for me I found that it gave my lashes volume and suitable for everyday wear. It's a very build able mascara. I found one coat will give enough to make a natural look but applying more made a more dramatic difference but does slightly clump lashes together. Another bonus is that it's not flakey or leaves huge clump of mascara on an eyelash (I find)
The packaging and the brush: I think the packaging is 'meh', compared to the others. The wand is huge bristles great at getting your lashes.
Overall, I wouldn't buy this again. The effect it gives doesn't make me go WOW, it's just an ok mascara.
They're Real mascara: I hated this when I first got it! My mum got it for me at christmas so i'm glad I didn't pay for it. I found it so hard to work with at first to get the look that I desired. I found that it needed many coats and fiddling about with that I just became bored and would give up with the mascara. However, I have been giving this another try recently and have learn't to like it more. I can see why it got it's rating. It really lengthens and separates the eyelashes!
The packaging and the brush: The packaging of this is nice enough it's simple metallic grey with name printed on it.. nothing amazing. The brush is small plastic bristles great for grabbing onto all the lashes. Also I find the end and using the brush vertically it is really good for getting all bottom lashes.
Overall, I wouldn't buy this again because there is definitely cheaper options out there that are just as good.. But it does do a good job!
Roller Lash mascara: This is the newest mascara by benefit and I grabbed the sample from the Elle magazine like many others. I was so happy when I got this & super impressed with the result. It really curls, separates, lengthens and add volume to my eyes which is great. Even on my mum's eyelashes which she has short stumps, you can tell an amazing difference it really curls her lashes and makes them pop. This mascara is so good!
The packaging and the brush: The brush is slightly curled with small bristles and great at picking up all the lashes. The packaging of the sample is really pretty.. the gorgeous metallic pink is stunning (it's like my favourite colour). & the full size packaging is also still really pretty!
Overall, I would buy this mascara! I think me and my mum will be both buying this in the very near future, although I normally wouldn't waste my money on a high end mascara.
What do you guys think?, can you see the differences? Would you buy any of these / do you own any of these?
see you soon, han x
ps: let me know your favourite mascara of all time...
