The Benefit They're Real Dupe


Some of you may have seen my post on the Benefit They're Real Mascara here, in which I said the for me, it just wasn't worth all the hype as it made my lashes look clumpy and dried really fast. I just didn't get on with it. I actually picked up the Collection Does It All Mascara 5 in 1, when I left the house without mascara one morning, it was cheap and I thought it would do the job. It wasn't until I got home I realised that the brush was pretty much exactly the same as the Benefit one but a little longer! It also had some of the same claims as the Benefit one and I instantly realised this was a dupe! I actually put them both on different eyes one day (after spending ages separating my lashes, thanks Benefit) and noone could tell I had two different mascaras on. The collection one is definitely a lot easier to get off as well. I actually preferred how the Collection one made my eyelashes look as they were seperated and looked more lifted and voluminous. For me this is a definite dupe if not a little better for us long eyelashed girls! It's definitely worth a go at £4.99 compared to £19.50! Collection is available in Boots and Superdrug and have brought us a few gems over the years definitely try them!

  1. I'm not a fan of They're Real either, so will have a look at this one - the finish is definitely similar!

  3. They look identical to me! I like super thick lashes so they're real was never one of my favourite mascaras anyway but this is an amazing dupe! x

  5. Oh wow the brushes are almost identical! I'm a big fan of They're Real, but not so much the price, so if there's a £4.99 dupe then I'm sold. I think my mum will probably be glad to hear this as well as she hates parting with nearly £20 for it so usually stocks up when the samples are attached to magazines!

  8. WOW !! They are pretty much exact same they seem to have the same result (lash extending and volume wish) and The brushes are so similar,I've always wanted to try the Benefit 'They're Real' because of good reviews but seeing as the the price is so steep I've really been holding back.After reading your review I feel less likely to buy it !! I'm so glad I came across this post :) I will defiantly be looking into the collection mascara.Thank you for your link on the bbloggers chat on twitter !! :) Have a nice week x
