Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Review of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

If you haven’t heard about it already Benefit have released a new mascara! You could get this early before the release date as a smaller sample size was a free gift with Elle magazine. After I heard everyone raving about how amazing it was I knew I had to try it out for myself to see if it was really as good as everyone was saying!

Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara has an eye opening “Hook ‘n’ Roll” brush which is meant to grab, separate, curl and set. It’s based around hair rollers which you can tell from the full-sized product packaging . The brush itself is curved and smaller than their previous mascara wands which makes it easier to apply, especially in the corners of your eyes. The mascara also has a ‘wand wiper’ built in which is meant to ensure that the brush doesn’t have too much product so that the eyelashes can be separated easily.

Review of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
Now onto what I thought, does it work? YES! When I first applied this I felt a slight tug on my lashes which is down to the little hooks on the brush which grab even the smallest of lashes. After just one coat they were curled and separated. I think it separates the lashes so well because of the comb like plastic brush, even if you build it up for a more dramatic effect it’s still clump free. The formula itself is very lightweight and quite wet, however it doesn’t smudge or flake. You can easily achieve length and volume with this mascara, and as it curls your lashes it opens up the eyes.  It’s actually designed for those with straight and shorter lashes however if you already have long curled lashes, I feel that this will emphasis that even more!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Before and After
As you can see above I’ve shown what my lashes look like before applying the mascara and after I’ve applied it, I think it’s such a big difference and I love it! If you had previously tried out Benefits They’re Real mascara but felt it weighed your lashes down too much, I’d definitely recommend this. Have you tried out their new mascara yet?

    I found this okay, it defiantly lengthened mine. But I do prefer a mascara with more volume!

      I wasn't too keen on the the 'They're Real' mascara either as it was a bit heavy for me, definitely like this one a lot more! :)

    Great review sweetie, this looks amazing on your lashes :) I love the design of the brush as you do feel it when applying. I’m a big fan of this mascara and I think I’m starting to prefer this to my They’re Real :)

    Forget the mascara, I'm too busy with massive eyebrow envy! Ha. They're such a perfect shape. Would love to see a post on your eyebrow routine etc. I'm in the middle of re-growing mine as I overplucked far too much in the past, its taking forever!

      Aww thank you so much, that's so lovely! I'm still re-growing mine as I used to overpluck too, I might do one when they've grown a little more :) x

    I've just reviewed this mascara on my blog but I really disliked it, it didn't hold the curl on my lashes at all. Such a shame as I loved their other mascara.
