If you read my last mascara review you will know that I wasn’t impressed and neither were my gross stubby eyelashes – you can share in my dismay here.
I got Rollerlash by Benefit for my birthday (oh, hello – want to know what else I got? Have a look here!), I’d heard a few good things about it and since I wasn’t paying I thought this was a good choice when I added it to my gift list for Neil.
You can buy Benefit’s Roller Lash in a number of places, mine was purchased in Boots for £19.50, which like all of Benefit products is rather pricey.
Here are my naked lashes – I don’t like them and as I have said before, I am forever on the quest for perfect, long eyelashes.
I’ve gone for barely there makeup so we can just concentrate on the mascara. Considering how dark my natural hair colour is (come to think of it, considering how long my leg hair gets in winter – why aren’t my eyelashes longer??) my lashes are pretty fair.
The mascara wand is a nice curved shape and has rubbery bristles so the mascara doesn’t clump on the end (FYI – I had to clean the wand after dropping it on the cat one time and the rubber bristles made it super easy to wash and dry). The design of the whole product is really pretty, it feels cute and vintage.
First up, I’ve done one eye so you can see the difference.
I’m already much more impressed with Roller Lash than the Max Factor mascara I tried previously. There is a noticeable difference in the length, shape and definition of my lashes.
Here’s both eyes with one coat of Roller Lash Mascara by Benefit.
Not bad right? I am pretty pleased with the results. Benefit have this to say about Roller Lash:
It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours. Contains provitamin B5 and serin, ingredients known for their lash-conditioning benefits.
- Ink black, satin finish
- Water-resistant & easy to remove
- 87% said it gives long-lasting curl*
*consumer panel survey on 31 women after 4 weeks
After 12 hours, I can say with confidence that my eyelashes are still curled, still look nice and black and are still well defined.
For me personally, although I love the length I am getting here, I did expect that bit more length for the hype. I am still living in hope that one day I will find the perfect mascara. Also, I don’t find it that easy to remove – ordinary makeup remover took some vigorous scrubbing and I still woke up the next day with panda eyes, so that wasn’t great.
