If there's one thing that I'm good at, it's spotting a good deal. Whether it comes to buying air freshener, puppy pads, or beauty products, I am your girl. Sorry for being slightly random with that list. Those were the first three things that popped into my head in regard to saving money.
Anyways, I have heard 500 million things about Benefit's They're Real! Mascara. But I needed to know how it compared to my favorite mascara, L'Oreal's False Fiber Lashes.
The battle was on.
I decided to purchase the travel size of They're Real! from Ulta. It was only $10 and it would surely have enough in the tube for me to test out. The normal price of a full size tube is $23 smackaroos. Yikes. For mascara? I think not. I would much rather put that toward a new pair of Kendra Scott earrings, thank you very much.
My usual mascara is one that I swear by. You can get a full size tube for $9.
The final verdict?
Overall, there is very little difference in application between the two mascaras. Money wise, the $9 price tag made me smile, while the $23 price tag kind of scares me. Based on this information, I would rather SAVE than splurge!
So what do you think? Would you save or splurge in this case? I know some women that swear by more expensive products; I am just not one of them. I swear by what works for me! If that means it's cheaper, then by-golly, I'm gonna buy it!
