I recently picked up Roller Lash by Benefit to find out what all the hype was about. To be honest, I never really considered that different mascaras would bring about different outcomes. In my mind, a mascara is a mascara; it makes your eyelashes more pronounced, and that’s pretty much it. But after trying L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions mascara (which I reviewed here), I quickly realized that a truly good mascara has a truly wonderful outcome and can significantly enhance the lashes you have.
I’m pretty certain that Roller Lash is my new favourite mascara (amen), and I can’t see myself wanting to pick up anything else from here on out (I sound like an ad! I’m not though!). The packaging is absolutely darling, which I love – maybe that’s superficial, but good packaging/branding goes a long way. It has a very retro vibe, which makes sense since the whole idea of roller lash is that the brush is like a roller (like for your hair), but for your lashes. But the most important thing of all, it actually does what it claims to do, and quite obviously. Their brush is designed so that it hooks to catch every lash, which helps with lengthening, and it’s curved shape helps to curl your wee lashes. I was so pleasantly surprised when I first tried it. It really did curl my lashes quite significantly (although, that’s a double edged sword, because then it sometimes gets on your lids) and then lengthens, which I could actually see happening as I was applying it. It probably got me far more excited than it should have, although maybe not, because I am really not that easily impressed.
I would definitely recommend this mascara to anyone who is looking for something new. It is a little pricey however, at least in my opinion, but the tube is quite hefty, so I figure it will last for a good amount of time and hopefully be well worth the price in the end.
