Battle of the Lashes - Which Mascara is Better?

I've always been picky with mascaras. With having very light blonde eyelashes I need a jet black mascara to make them look a normal colour. I'd say I have a good length to my eyelashes and I almost never use eyelash curlers since a mascara can usually curl them enough. Here are my current mascaras that I'm using at the moment.


Benefit They're Real £19.50
The comb applicator is great for separating lashes and making them look lovely and long. The only downside to the comb shape is that if you attempt to apply the mascara as close to the root as possible, you can sometimes end up poking yourself in the eye. I adore this mascara, but since my lashes are blonde I can never get close enough so they don't completely look black. I did a mini review here.

Makeup Revolution Viper* £3.00
The brush on this mascara reflects the name. It is thinner than the usual brush but wider, meaning it can apply the mascara to the whole of your lashes in one go. It lasts the majority of the day before flaking which for the price is pretty good! I included it in this post.

Urban Decay Perversion £17.50
At first I thought "this is the best mascara ever" but I realised that it is only absolutely amazing if you apply the Subversion Primer (£15.50) first. To buy both that would be a whopping £33 just for some mascara that looks wow. I'm extremely lucky to have been bought both of these, and they are my favourite when paired together. My eyes look super long and black without looking like spiders legs. My first review is here, notice my opinion has changed!

Yves Rocher Vertige* £7.50
Another comb applicator with the same issues as with Benefit's mascara. The upside to this is that it is £12 cheaper than They're Real and is almost identical once on your eyelashes. I love the metallic packaging too. I did another review here.

Ted Baker Mascara
This isn't sold separately and I was lucky to get a Ted Baker makeup set for Christmas. I'd say this is potentially the worst mascara out of them all. The comb-brush mix is good but the formula of the mascara isn't very long lasting.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin Curves £6.99
The cheapest of them all with high volume and a jet black colour. I have this in both in Black and Extreme Black but they look the same to me! If you want a drugstore mascara that works - try this.
