Review of Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara

I'm sure most of you already know that Benefit recently came out with a new Mascara - the Roller Lash. A friend and I went to the small launch event hosted by Sephora and Benefit at Toronto's Eaton Center , and I decided to pick this baby up and do a review for my lovely readers. 

With any 2 Benefit Product Purchases, you were gifted an adorable tote and a sample of Puff Off!

Here are some pictures from the event:

 My lashes - before and after. 

I have the most pathetic and sad lashes ever. Without mascara, you can't even see anything on my poor eyelids - as witnessed in the picture above. Super short and fine... I also do not have the energy to rock a pair of fake lashes everyday to work so my search for a good mascara has been on-going.

As you can see from the before and after shot, it looks pretty good :) I am actually quite happy that I got these results without having to even curl my lashes first. To be honest though - the first two applications kind of sucked. It took a little to get used to, and now after a few tries, it really works with me and I will not be returning this product. I really was on the fence with this product when I first tried it, but now it has taken residence in my vanity drawer and is used daily. 

A good drugstore alternative, would be the Maybelline - Lash Sensational. Both products do not require a lash curler prior to application - however, the brush on the Maybelline is a bit wider and chubbier. The Maybelline is $4.96 vs. The Roller lash which is $29. 

Although I won't be returning the Benefit mascara, I probably won't be repurchasing it either. I would probably be sticking to the Lash Sensational.

additional products I picked up - deluxe sample sizes of these products I can throw in my travel bag. 

I also picked up a new lipstain/gloss from MUFE and redeemed 100 pts each on the Clinique deluxe sample size repair wear night cream and the Marc Jacobs gel liner - both GREAT point redemption products! I will also be tossing these into my travel bag. I love redeeming Sephora points for useful things I can take on vacation like creams, makeup remover and mostly skin stuff. 

Until next time, XO - M.

  1. I wish I was as satisifed as you were with the results, I didn't feel it curled my lashes enough and elongate them.
