The Boujois Beauty'Full Dark Kohl Mascara - a They're Real Dupe

We're almost at the end of January, a month where our pockets chock full of mothballs and not a lot else, so I thought for the remainder of this month I'd show you one of my favourite dupes - starting off with mascara! I don't think I've heard a bad word said against Benefit's They're Real - it's a fantastic mascara which builds and builds and defies clump, however every time I invest in a tube the price creeps up and up, and it's RRP currently sits at a steep £19.50. I'd like to present you with what I consider one serious dupe which not only has a similar brush but a kickass formula and is a purse pleasing £7.99 - it's Bourjois' Beauty'Full Dark Kohl Mascara.

L-R Benefit's 'They're Real' Wand, Bourjois' Dark Kohl Wand

Let's start with the brush - there are a few similarities, first off they're both that spikey plastic brush and both sport ends with bristles which you can use to accentuate your outer lashes and although the length and shape of the brushes are different, I feel if you love the Benefit brush, you'll love this one just as much. I feel the formulas also must be similar as the Bourjois mascara allows you to keep on wiggling that brush and building those lashes without things getting mega clumpy, although I will point out it's a darn sight easier to get off which is a big bonus in my books. I'm a lash curler and this mascara holds a curl like a dream, and I honestly haven't got a bad thing to say about it! I've spent the past couple of days wearing a mascara on each eye and I can honestly say I prefer Bourjois' offering, which is high praise. It does everything They're Real does, it's solves my one gripe that I have with They're Real, which is that it comes off, and it's a third of the price!

Basically, what I'm saying save yourself £12 and pick up this instead. I bring you this dupe in lieu of Benefit's new mascara release, The Roller Lash, a similar brush still, however it's curved. Although I'm not going to in all guns blazing and buy it on release date, however I am going to pick up Elle which have a sample with their March issue (released on the 29th of January) and I reckon y'all should be savvy too and get yourself a deluxe sample too!
