BEAUTY: Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner- Worth It?

Hello beauts. How are we all doing this week? 

This week I got paid, which meant I got to spurge on something. Every blogger and their dog has been talking about Benefits They're Real Push Up Liner so I HAD to try it. 

The premise is simple. Its a matte gel eyeliner that hugs to your lashes line to make it as though you have bigger eyes. It's waterproof, long lasting and easy to use

It has an accuflex tip to make it easier to make a simple glide.
It was then when I realised 'Hang on, I pretty much have an eyeliner like this!

Remember this review? If not you can have a quick read [here]. Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock does pretty much the same thing as benefits newest liner. So I decided to compare the two

L-R: Benefit/Maybelline

As I've said before, I'm terrible at taking eye photos so here's the photos from my phone!

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Maybellines Black Shock Liner
Okay, well I just realised my skin is awful. But apart from that, I found no difference between the look of the liner. They were both easy FOR ME to use (I'm saying that because I'm used to it but it might be tricky for beginners), they both can be used in one swipe, and both can create easy flicks.

I have used them both for more than 10 hours and they stay on all night. I didn't buy the benefit remover mainly because I'm so cheap I couldn't justify spending that amount on a remover. I used my Superdrug own brand vitamin E eye make up remover

L-R : Benefit/Maybellines
Surprisingly, I found Maybelline's a lot more difficult to remove. I was scrubbing at my eye for a while, but the benefit liner was easier.

The main difference I found is that Benefits liner was easier to use as it had a harder tip. The Maybelline tip is rubber so it bends once you apply pressure.

Maybellines Tip
Honestly, If you fancy spending £18.50 on an eyeliner then get the benefit liner. If you want a cheaper one that gives you the same results spend £8.99 on the Maybelline one.

Anyone else a little disappointed in the Push Up Liner? I had such high hopes! Comment below as usual lovelies 

Also, I want to thank my followers! I reached 250 yesterday and I'm so happy. I know that might seem so little and pitiful to bigger bloggers but I'm so grateful to every one of you readers :)

  1. I've been wondering whether to get this as I love their 'they're real' mascara, but I think I might just go ahead and get the maybelline dupe first! It sounds like once you've got the hang of it that style of eyeliner is really quick and easy. Which I like!
    Not long till we meet in September!! :) xx

  2. Thanks so much for the comparison review, I find these so useful when over hyped products come out. I like the Maybelline gel liner so will pick up their pen liner as well :)

  3. Oooooh I haven't heard of this Maybelline liner (I apparently have been living under a rock or something), but it looks perfect, especially lasting just as long and being harder to remove than the Benefit one. Sounds like something I definitely need to get my hands on and £10 cheaper, it's a bargain.
    Thanks for the comparison. :D
