Is the Maybelline Define-A-Lash a dupe for Benefit They´re Real?

Is the Maybelline Define-A-Lash a dupe for Benefit They´re Real?
I was really impressed with the Benefit They´re Real Mascara but I needed a waterproof mascara cause I go swimming a lot. So when I saw the Maybelline Define-A-Lash I thought that the wand look astounding similar to the Benefit They´re Real (please know that I bought the Mascara before I went cruelty free! Maybelline and Benefit both are Animal Testers and I am not gonna repurchase either one!)

Test: Benefit They´re Real against Maybelline Define-A-Lash

And now check out the wand!

But when I applied the Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara I noticed right away something very strange: the wand is wriggling totally weird! I have never used such a weird Mascara that wriggles completely. I felt applying was feeling uncomfortable and I hit a couple times skin with the mascara. However: the mascara really made my lashes very long!

Check out the comparison.

Comparism Benefit vs. Maybelline

Overall though the Benefit is still the winner. Even though the Maybelline somehow gives me longer lashes- they are so undefined and more sticking together. With the Benefit I get more defined and blacker and thicker lashes- not only length but also volume.

Oh well- I thought if the wand looks so similar I might have found something here- but no! Not a dupe- sorry for that! ;-)

Have you tried any of these Mascaras? I guess everybody knows the Benefit They´r real?
