Maybelline 'The Rocket' Mascara

I haven't bought a new mascara since falling in love with Benefit 'They're Real' about a year ago. I've just stuck to it and never liked much else since. But my friend Rachel (from Raych3kinzx on YouTube) mentioned this in her January Favourites and I was intrigued. She said it was a close dupe for They're Real so I just had to try it, especially as its on offer for £5.99 instead of £7.99 at the moment too!

I have to admit, I'm really impressed. Firstly, I absolutely love the plastic bristle brush, it holds lots of mascara and makes applying effortless. Its definitely a lengthening mascara rather than thickening however, a few coats and it looks amazing. I think it might even be better a little drier in a few weeks. 

The packaging secures and seals the product well, the brush is the perfect size and application is really good. I can't really fault it to be honest! I've found myself reaching for this at the moment but I think overall, its a very close call to They're Real and a fraction of the price.

What do you think? Have you tried this yet?
