Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – Review

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this mascara. In fact, you could say this mascara has been on my mind for weeks. So you can imagine my excitement when I finally bought it last weekend.  I’ll be the first to admit I love anything that comes in pretty packaging and this certainly fits into that category.  The vintage style wand handle and the retro pink colouring make this just too good to store in your makeup bag. It’s certainly acceptable to leave this mascara out on your dressing table when it is as pretty as this!

The Benefit Roller Lash Mascara promises me curl and lift, describing it as being a ‘hair roller’ for my lashes. I was intrigued to try the Hook ‘n’ Roll formula that grabs, separates, lifts and curls . I tried this out on Saturday so am now in a position to share with you all my thoughts.

The wand itself is plastic –  I don’t usually buy these out of choice.  I always find I have to work harder to get the desired amount of product on my lashes. The brush is curved with bristles of different lengths – on the bottom they are straight and on the top curved. The bristles have little hooks at the base that work similar to that of a hair roller – they catch the lashes to curl and lift them.

I found this mascara a little time consuming to apply.  That said, the mascara itself is a wet consistency and this helps to evenly coat my lashes.  With a little work I found it applied evenly from root to tip and the brush did not catch my lids giving me those dreaded smudges on my eyeshadow.  Did I notice a curl? Yes, slightly. It certainly fanned my lashes out and opened them up nicely. Would I buy this mascara again? Not immediately but that is purely because as I have said I am not really a fan of a plastic wand but there is no doubt that for those days when you want to make an impact and have the time to expertly apply then this mascara fits the bill.

The mascara comes in black and is priced at £19.50.

Have you tried this mascara? What did you think to it? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!

  1. Hiya!
    I loved this little review 🙂 I received the sample size of Roller Lash and I really love the results – it’s definitely not my go-to, everyday mascara, but it makes a good addition to the collection for the days I want to mix it up a little. Keep writing! Emma xx

  2. I have tried it! And I quite like it… I like that you can layer it and control the intensity of the mascara. A lot of mascaras already give you a powerful layer with the first stroke and I sometimes like to have a more natural look and to be able to layer it if I want it to be more intense. I found that the Roller Lash manages that quite well. Also, the brush gets my shorter lashes, which sometimes doesn’t work that well for me with other mascaras. All in all, I am quite happy with the Roller Lash 🙂
