Mascara Smackdown: COVERGIRL Bombshell VS Benefit They're Real

I know the new COVERGIRL Bombshell Mascara is the newest mascara to hit the drugstore mascaras and the Benefit They're Real has been my favorite for a while now. So I thought I'd do a review/comparison and you can see what you think...
and you can watch my video below where I do the wear, rub and wash test...

So here's the scoop on the COVERGIRL Bombshell Mascara:
*double ended mascara with 2 different formula's and brushes on each end
*side #1 is for thick voluminous lashes
*COVERGIRL says they have a proprietary micro-thin formula that allows for multiple thick layers without the normal clumping of mascaras with waxes and clays
*side #2 is for adding extra dark coats to seal in the mascara and add deep darkness on top
*the tube is way thicker than normal mascaras but it doesn't change how it goes on and I actually like it because the extra larger size allows extra volume of mascara

*specially designed brush with a spikey-ball tip to get in the corners really well.
*jet-black long wearing formula

Now let's get this showdown on.....

#1. Here's me with my eye make-up on, but NO MASCARA:

#2. I applied 3 coats of the #1, volumizing side:

#3. FINALLY....
on the LEFT SIDE is the BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL (my old favorite) 
with about 5 coats of mascara.
and on the RIGHT SIDE,
with 3 coats of #1 and 
2 coats of

What do you think?
What I think: 
I can't believe how well the Covergirl Bombshell did, since the Benefit They're Real, has been my favorite for months, I was expecting it to take down the Covergirl Bombshell.....but, actually after I did this "EYE by EYE" comparison, the Covergirl actually was way thicker and fuller!
You need to apply the Bombshell pretty much like how I apply it in the video, 3-4 coats of #1, from root to tip, 2-3 coats of #2, or it might not come out as you had hoped! But overall, I was super impressed and I like the bargain price, compared to higher end versions. I noticed that the Benefit Mascara is slightly softer to the touch, but the Bombshell is not stiff or hard like waterproof mascaras, the They're Real is just slightly softer.
