The Best Of Three – Benefit Mascaras


Everybody has there favourites in makeup, there’s that one makeup item that they just can’t walk out the house with, well mine is mascara. As my natural lashes are light brown and short I just need a mascara to lengthen and darken up my lashes to make my eyes open up, I’m sure all of you out their can relate. 

So I’m sure your all aware of the Benefit They’re Real! mascara with it’s raving reviews and it’s a personal favourite of mine but I thought it would be nice to talk about all three of the Benefit mascaras and maybe it will help you pick you best of the three.

Left to right: BADgal, Roller Lashes & They’re Real!

As you can see all three have very different wands, the bigger fatter wands are mainly designed for volumising the lashes, the middle wand has a slight curve to it with tiny hooks to help grab and curl your lashes and then you have straight all round spiky brush for really lengthening those lashes. So depending on what style you like your lashes to look depends on which one is best suited to you in this best of three I suppose.

So I’ve written down all the things Benefit say about there mascaras to give you a brief description on the differences between the three.

BADgal – A black mascara for full, voluminous lashes

Roller Lashes – The eye opening Hook ‘n’ Roll brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls. While the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours!. 

97% said it visibly lifts curls

87% said it gives long-lasting curl

94% said eyes look more wide open
They’re Real! – Lengths, curls, volumises, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out.
94% said saw dramatic length & volume
90% said saw base to tip curl
94% saw visible lift
100% saw long-lasting results

When I first heard Benefit were releasing a new mascara called Roller Lash, I was so excited to try it out and see how it could be better than there most popular They’re Real I just needed to get my hands on it. 

So here’s how I got on with trying them out over the weeks

I felt BADgal just didn’t give me that volume I was hoping for but it did lengthen my lashes and gave them a very natural look with no clumps. I experienced no smudges or panda eyes like most people have said about this mascara and I’m generally happy with it apart from the lack of volume which I wouldn’t recommend it for.

This has been one of my favourite mascaras which I have used for ages now. It’s just a brilliant mascara and it really does give you some stunning lashes from the lengthening to the long-lasting, it’s been my everyday staple for so long and there’s so many raving reviews which will convince you to just go out and buy one for yourself.

For someone who doesn’t have naturally curled lashes this mascara is great for giving you the curl you’d get from an eyelash curler, it adds just as good length as the They’re Real and it really does grab every lash with it’s new and improved brush.

 So after using these three mascara’s for some time now, my best out of the three would have to be Roller Lash as my No.1 out of all the Benefit mascaras and then They’re Real and BADgal. They really are great mascaras but I’m not sure I’d ever buy the full version of BADgal just because I feel that I could buy a dupe at half the price. I think I should point out that they are all very easy to remove as well
