First Impressions of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

When I first heard that Benefit was coming out with a new mascara I was pretty excited. I have loved the Bad Gal and They're Real mascaras, when it comes to mascaras Benefit know what they're doing. This mascara is Roller Lash, it isn't available until, I believe, late February/March. but this month Elle magazine had a sample size of the mascara included so I knew I had to see if it was as good as the others that I had tried.

Benefit Roller Lash Before and After
I love this mascara, I am obsessed. The brush is new and special to Benefit. The wand has a 'Hook 'n' Roll' brush to catch all of the lashes, lift them and curl. I hook all of my lashes in the curve and roll it up to the end of my lashes which gives me that lift and curl from root to tip. I am so impressed with how long and curled my lashes are. I have been wearing this everyday since I picked it up and I have found that this mascara really holds the curl incredibly and it lasts all day. It gives me lashes so much length too and it can definitely be built up. If you want to add another coat later in the day you can do without worrying about it clumping. 

The formula is great too, it doesn't make the lashes feel 'crunchy' like some mascaras do and they feel soft to touch. It is one of the best intense black mascaras that I have tried that doesn't fade or melt off throughout the day. I believe this mascara also has lash conditioning ingredients which is great to keep my lashes nice and healthy looking. I was really worried that this mascara would be really difficult to remove, as the Benefit They're Real mascara is such a pain to remove which does put me off using it some times, but this mascara is so easy to remove. I was able to get it all off with half a pump of Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. 

I am really impressed with this mascara and I think I might have to treat myself to the full size once it is released. I believe it will around the £19.50 mark. If you want to try it this month before its release late February/March, you can pick up this months issue of Elle magazine for £4 which this mascara included.

Will you be trying this mascara?

  1. I've seen nothing but positive reviews for this mascara. It seems to be a big hit in the blogging community. I've always enjoyed using Benefit's previous mascaras so I'll maybe pick this one up in Spring. Thanks for sharing xxx

  2. I've literally just bought the Elle March edition to get this sample. Pretty devastated I have to wait for the 9-5 to be over for me to try it. Plus I work with just men so I have no one to share my excitement with...

  3. I love the look of Roller Lash on my lashes, but I do find it tricky to apply and it doesn't seem to catch all my lashes so I have to use quite a few strokes. Hoping I'll master the application in time!

  5. I tried the sample from Elle and loved it too! I completely agree that it doesn't make your eyelashes crunchy. It sounds really funny, but I really hate that feeling. It lifted my lashes so well x

  7. I picked up Elle yesterday and am super excited to try the little sample. I've been wanting to splurge on a Benefit mascara for a while now but couldn't decide, so its nice that I can try a little one before I commit to a full size! :)
