Rasters in mosaic looks different then the raster itself

I have two tiff rasters 3 bands true color. One of them is a little darker than the other (Mean pixel about 110 and 125 for the other one).

When I just display them in ArcMap there is a little different in the display.

When I build a mosaic dataset on them (with no overviews) the rasters are displayed differently and the difference in color is bigger.

I am aware that the default display for mosaic and rasters are different.

I checked all the properties in the display and symbology tabs for the layer properties to be the same.

Both are displayed with none stretch, same gamma, same resample method etc.

It still looks different, why?

What is the best way to give a smooth look in this case?

Should I use color balance? Should I change the Mosaic operator to bland? Should I add a function for brightness to the dark rasters?

I cannot share screen shots, sorry.

 

Thanks
