BENEFIT roller lash curling & lifting mascara Full size: 8.5 g Net wt. 0.3 oz.
About this deal
I’m afraid this is where we part ways though, because the curl is nowhere near as pronounced and pretty as when my trusty Shu Uemura curlers have been let loose on my lashes. I find Lash Sensational a little more thick in formula and I feel it gives more volume whereas the Benefit separates them slightly more. On days when I know I'm going to sweat a lot, cry or get caught in the rain (or swimming hahaha kidding), I'll keep a distance from it and opt for a waterproof mascara.
Thanks to Elle, the World’s best-selling fashion magazine, I was able to exclusively try Benefit Cosmetics brand new Roller Lash mascara this month! My natural lashes are, obviously, fine and not very long (bad combination) although they do have a slight natural curl to them (I'd be interested to see how Roller Lash performs on bang straight lashes). Even if I finish getting ready for a night out early I'd rather go and get myself a drink than sit with an eyelash curler! My lashes are naturally curved upwards slightly, instead of stubbornly-downward-pointing-straight lashes like most Asians.

I only thought to document myself getting ready after I texted my girl Danielle to show her the bitchstick I picked out – Damned, a velvet matte pencil from NARS. I think the slightly tacky formula of Roller Lash definitely helps it in curling your lashes, which the formula of They’re Real takes longer to dry and so gives you time to completely separate your lashes. Rather than the usual gimmicky brush hoopla, this brush went through 46 different designs to get to the final, perfect one, so they have clearly put a lot of thought into this.
Which makes me feel even better about my purchase (since I've been trying to transition to ethical products as of late). A tip is that you can layer a base coat of Roller Lash with a second coat of They’re Real to get some real drama but I would recommend dabbing your brush on a tissue for the second coat, otherwise the heaviness of the They’re Real formulation might drag down the curl in your lash that you have just tried to enhance. I really like the roller lash and I'd seen the Maybelline mascara on the shelf but I didn't take a close look at it, I didn't know it was a potential dupe!
Although I haven’t been using the Benefit Roller Lash mascara for 4 weeks, I have been using it every day since I got it and agree that it lifts, gives a long-lasting curl, and makes my eyes look wide open. The item may be missing its original packaging, or the original packaging has been opened or is no longer sealed. my eyelashes are naturally flat and medium to long but when I curl them they will stay curled throughout the day without mascara. If you’re looking for lift with a lasting curl, then this mascara is the one for you – ultimate curl power!The wands are very similar; the Benefit wand is a little thinner but I didn't find applying one or the other any more difficult to work with. Therefore both of these products are amazing because you can get that curl without adding an extra step to your routine and it'll stay there all day. I've used benefit they real mascara for ages and was happy with it, but felt adventurous to try this one and oh my god am I happy I did! The Roller Lash brush is much smaller, softer and bendier, you can get right into the corners of your lashes at the inner and outer corner and it’s small enough to be fine to use on your bottom lashes too and much better for those with smaller eyes.
Both the top and bottom lashes were enhanced, replacing the need for an eyelash curler, which is a blessing since we don’t all have time to fit this into our daily beauty routines!Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material (including photos) without express and written permission from this blog’s author and/or owner is strictly prohibited. The wand has slight curve to it and is packed with plastic bristles/spikes - longer on the top (as you may be able to see) gradually reducing in size towards the underneath - almost like rows and rows of tiny canine teeth! As you can see from my before and after photos, there is a lot of difference, my lashes are invisible without mascara, I don’t have many lashes, they are thin and short, so while my after picture is never going to be amazing compared to other girls, it certainly makes a lot of difference to me and really opens my eyes up.
