*Neither brand is cruelty-free. Benefit is $20 while Maybelline is $6.40. The Benefit Roller lash wand is a bit skinnier than the Maybelline. Two coats of mascara were applied to each eye. The Benefit clumped up a little bit after the second coat while the Maybelline second coat went on smoothly. We got more of a lift/curl with the Benefit than with the Maybelline. About 10 hours later both mascaras held up really well. No flaking or smudging. Nothing fell under the eyes for either mascara. We do believe that the Benefit mascara does give more lift/curl but you could achieve the same look with the Maybelline if you use an eyelash curler prior to application.
In my opinion, Benefit has a dryer formula. The Maybelline is more wet. Both are super good and give the spider eyelash effect!
I have tried a million different mascaras, high end and drug store, and this one is still my favorite!
I was not impressed by benefit’s mascara, especially for the price tag that comes with it. I felt it would get clumpy really easily. I agree that Maybeline is the better option.
