Review | Benefit Roller Lash

I think every blogger I know has tried this mascara seeing as it came free with last months Elle! But just in case you haven't, I thought I would give you my opinion. I've tried the Benefit They're Real mascara and that is still one of my favourite mascaras. The only reason I haven't repurchased it is because of the price. I think drugstore mascaras are really good, so I tend to go to L'Oreal or Maxfactor. But I read Elle magazine anyway so obviously I was going to buy it with a good freebie!

I had high hopes because I loved the They're Real so much, but for me this doesn't live up to my expectations. I am lucky that I don't need to use waterproof mascara as my eyelashes are pretty naturally curly so I can't comment on whether it holds a curl. It did give me length but it didn't give me the volume I was looking for so after I took the snap above I layered on a Maxfactor mascara. I think that it is a good mascara, but for the price I would expect to be satisfied with the results on it's own and not have to layer. But do bare in mind that I like quite voluminous lashes, so this might not be an issue for you if you're not as bothered! On the postive side, it lasted really well with no smudging and I wore it in a nightclub. The brush is also really easy to use and not super fiddly to do your bottom lashes either. 

I am planning on bringing back more beauty related content as it's something I haven't been doing as much recently and I miss it! So I think I will be doing an updated make-up favourites in the next week or so.

Have you tried the Benefit Roller Lash? What did you think?




  1. I have to say I do prefer L'oreal mascaras and don't see the point in spending so much when there are perfectly good ones on the high street! This one is better than They're Real though for me x

  2. I actually do like this but not enough to buy a full size, my lashes come out when I take my make up off even with baby oil something is not right :( I do think it was over hyped like most things but I think the packaging and wand is spot on xx
