W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara - A Dupe of Benefits They're Real Mascara?

Hello Beauties :) I hope you are all well :)
Well I am sure alot of you who have seen me post up a picture of Facebook about this have been dying to hear my thoughts and see pictures on this mascara :)  I know for a fact I was super excited to try this when I seen it for sale in a local pharmacy :) 
Tod do thing differently on this post I am going to show you a picture of my lashes one side has the benefit They're Real Mascara on the other has W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara on bother with only 2 coats and I want you to guess which eye has which :)  Of course at the end I will tell you if you are right or wrong but for a bit of fun I want you to comment below.  So eye number one which will be your left hand side and the 2nd eye which is your right :) :) 
So here it is :) 

The focus & lighting is a little off because the sun likes to play games popping in and out every 2 seconds but at least you can still see the lashes :) 

Well of course by now you can tell that W7 has been "cheeky" enough to copy the packaging that Benefit has for the They're real mascara so even my 5 year olds have noticed that both mascaras look very very alike on the outside from the mirrow image packaging to the black and orange writing as you can see below 

So now that we have cleared that the packaging is very alike.  We now have to investigate the wands in which I again was shocked with :) Take a look :) :) 

The top wand is W7 and the bottom of course is Benefit :) 
There is a little difference in the wands and in thickness but they both look very very alike let me show you a closer look 

They are both flexible which mean they both work with the lashes :)   
W7 have certainly ticked both boxes so far in achieving to creating a dupe but of course the real question is does it perform the same :) 

Well for all you Benebabes out there who love and adore They're Real Mascara I am with you as I absolutely adore it too.  I adore for for the fact that it makes my lashes super long, super full and makes them look evenly separated.  I also love how black it makes my lashes.  No flakiness no clumps no smudging and is 100% waterproof I mean Nothing is budging Benefits They're Real Mascara Some would even say that even some eye make-up removers wont budge it which is a dream to all of us ladies :) 

W7 has alot to live up to, match what Benefit has to offer to us in performance 

To be honest I wanted to test these against each other and really put them to the test last week with our horrible Irish winter weather.  I applied W7 on one eye and Benefit on the other used no curlers.  
I found applying W7 a dream The Formula was not too wet and not too dry.  There was a perfect amount of the formula on the brush to apply one coat to each lash.  I did have to comb through my lashes a little more than I did with the Benefit Mascara but that's nothing major.  There was no mess no smudging while applying the mascara which again is brilliant.  I found both mascara's dried the same time and I didn't feel like I needed to add another coat of W7 to match up with the pigmentation Benefit gave on the other eye.  Both lashes looked the same :) :) Happy Days :) 
Throughout the day I noticed No Flaking and nothing different from when I first applied the W7 mascara to be honest I felt like I was wearing Benefit They're Real on both eyes :)  
In total I wore these mascaras for 13 hours and there was no change even been caught in the rain a few times there was no movement or no panda eyes.    

The only difference I did notice was when I took my makeup off Its alot easier to take of the W7 mascara than the Benefits They're Real.  I could use a simple eye makeup remover to remove W7 but to remover the Benefit They're Real I had to use the Benefit Remover.  
Here is a before and after picture after 2 coats of each :)  Have you decided which eye has W7 and Which has Benefit yet?  ;) 

I have to admit I was very impressed with W7 Absolute Lashes and find its a good cheaper alternative.  
I still adore Benefit and to be honest its one of my top favourite Mascara's.  I just simply find I can only treat myself to They're Real occasionally because it costs €22.50.  Whereas W7 have made a very very good attempt of making a dupe of They're Real for only €3.50 per mascara.  If you are one who loves They're real but sometimes find it hard to part with the money to buy it well you can always go for the cheaper alternative and still have beautiful darker long full lashes :) and now for the big Real 
The left eye which is the first eye has the W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara on and the right eye which is the 2nd eye Has Benefit They're Real Mascara on.  Did you Guess Right?

Well that's it from me today everyone I really hope you Enjoyed this review :)  Incase you are wondering W7 Absolute Mascara is available from leading pharmacies in Ireland including Cara Pharmacy :) 

Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
