The Benefit “They’re Real” mascara is a top-rated product, but one flaw is the price tag. At $26, not all of us can afford to invest in the luscious lashes this mascara provides. So, dupes are our next best bet!
Luckily, there are a few dupes that are super similar to the Benefit mascara (and for some people, even better). Let’s dive in to our top picks.
Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara Dupes
This mascara is the most recommended dupe out there, and best of all, it’s incredibly affordable. It has a super similar wand and formula, with no clumps or flakes!
Aside from Amazon, you can often find this mascara at TJ Maxx or a similar store for dirt cheap (think $3).
Covergirl’s LashBlast is exactly as the name suggests.
With most users seeing excellent volume and length as well as long-lasting wear, it has very similar features to the Benefit They’re Real mascara. All for a much better price!
With a thick wand that gives mega volume and long length, this affordable product from Maybelline is another top pick as a dupe.
Although the design isn’t exactly the same (and the results depend on your specific lashes), it provides similar length and volume. Some people like it even better!
Our final dupe pick is this Wet n’ Wild mascara. At less than $4, this mascara is a great deal for the length and volume it provides.
Keep in mind this one doesn’t work for everyone, so we’d recommend trying the previous alternatives before moving onto this one.
Although we’ve only listed a few options, these are the only ones we felt confident naming as dupes for the Benefit They’re Real mascara. There are definitely other alternatives you may want to try out, but they don’t give as consistent similar results as the ones we’ve listed above.
So, happy dupe hunting, we hope you find the perfect match!
