Review | Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Thursday, 28 May 2015

I've definitely become more of a fan of mascara in recent months and currently the Benefit Roller Lash is the mascara I always reach for.


I was happy to get the sample version of this mascara in Glamour magazine a couple of months ago as there's been a lot of buzz around this product in the beauty sphere, but at £19.50 I didn't think I'd ever get to try this. I've had a few benefit products before, and loved them, but the cost is just a bit too high for me, especially as I stick to throwing out old mascaras every 6 months.

Cost aside this is a great little product. The design of the mascara wand is slightly curved and it gently pulls up the lashes whilst coating it in mascara. It's supposed to help curl straight lashes but where my lashes are naturally curly anyway I haven't noticed a huge difference in this. It does define and lengthen each lash however.

The formula is buildable which I love as there's no clumpy, spider-effect. I'm a bit clumsy when it comes to mascara application (mostly as it's done amidst my morning commute to work), so thankfully this has a comb-style mascara wand making it easy to apply without making a mess. This mascara stays put pretty well too. I've been rubbing my eyes a lot lately (due to hayfever) and this stuff doesn't budge at all.


In all definitely a winning mascara, though the cost does put me off buying the full-size version. I'm definitely going to enjoy this sample size whilst it lasts!

Have you tried any Benefit products?

  2. Totally understand about the cost for mascara, but recently I got to try a high end sample and have not been disappointed. Intrigued about this mascara as my friend mentioned it and her lashes looked great. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I've heard a lot of good things about this mascara. I know what you mean with high prices for mascara's but that being said I always buy their 'They're Real' mascara and got a few clients in love with it too, so I'm going to try this one for sure! xo
