Roller Lash by Benefit : My Thoughts ♡


I really don't like writing negative reviews on my blog, let's be honest though I don't think anybody enjoys writing negative reviews. However I've seen so many rave reviews about this product I feel like I'm missing something.

When Benefit released news of their newest mascara Roller Lash everybody including myself got excited. Finding out that there was going to be a sample size of the product in the latest issue of Elle magazine I got dressed and done my makeup and off I walked to Tesco. On my way home the weather decided to change and grant me with a snow storm...it was bloody freezing and by the time I got home I couldn't feel my ears, legs or hands.

The packaging is gorgeous, on the full size of the product the cap is a bit more detailed to give it a look of a roller. This mascara claims that you do not need any lash curlers as this will do all the work for you giving you a gorgeous curl! Benefits They're Real mascara is a cult product for almost everyone including myself and so I had high hopes for this as how could they fail with a mascara when they have something perfect like They're Real.


I tried it for the whole week after purchasing it, convincing myself I must be applying the mascara wrong because (a) my lashes look no different and (b) there is absolutely no sign of a curl whatsoever. So I continued to use it into another week, layering coats, wiggling the brush as much as possible, getting at the root of the lashes and absolutely nothing worked.

Personally I feel like the only one who hasn't and won't rave on about this product but I am so glad I bought the sample size instead of just purchasing the full size because atleast I know it doesn't work for me. However just because it doesn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for others, try and get your hands on the sample size one to try first! Roller Lash full size will set you back £19.50/€26.00 where as the little sample in Elle magazine is only €6.50. I adore Benefit products but sadly this one just was not for me!

Have you tried this mascara, how do you feel about it?

  6. I actually really liked roller lash but you shouldn't feel bad for not liking it. At least you're being honest! I like it a lot more than other benefit mascaras but it is quite expensive
