New On The Shelves | Benefit Roller Lash

 










 
I'm never the one for buying things as soon as they come out, but seeing this new benefit mascara as the gift in the ELLE magazine intrigued me.
 
First of all, the packaging is gorgeous, like always. Not only does is come is a beautifully designed box, but the mascara itself is sturdy and even better, the lid is a metallic pinky-gold.
 
For the mini size, I was actually surprised as I had been expecting a much smaller product. The wand easily stretches the length of my lashes and has a slight upward curve to it, which gives your lashes a full effect. This also claims that the tiny bristles on the wand act as hooks, which enables you to get away without using an eyelash curler. Saying this, in the photos above, I had used an eyelash curler beforehand. Application is quick and easy and the product pay off is good.  toryisweird bocamymota
 
Compared to my favourite mascara by Clarins, I would say Benefit still haven't quite hit the top spot with their mascaras, but this conclusion has only taken the mini version of the Roller Lash into consideration. Price wise, this mascara is set to be sold at £19.50. Up very high in the price range, can Benefit match the quality of the product to its price?
 
At the moment, I've read that this mascara is exclusive to the march copy of Elle magazine only, however the launch of this mascara is going to land in stores soon. 
 
Overall, paying £4 for both a magazine and brand new mascara was completely worth it, I am very happy with the effect this has on my lashes and will be looking to purchase the full size when it comes out in stores.

  6. I've just bought a copy of Elle today because I wanted to try the mascara, I can't justify spending £19.50 on a mascara but £4 isn't bad when you get the magazine as well, great review, I'm looking forward to trying the mascara now

    1. I know, I'm a little iffy about spending over £10 on a mascara, but the mini size is just as good and last quite a long time for £4!!

  10. I've got my mini from Elle as well and my first impression of it was really good! I thought it lengthened and separated a lot, my lashes looked very fluttery and pretty :) I think I still prefer the 'They're Real' one because I like A LOT of lash and that one is a bit more dramatic looking.

    1. I like the They're Real one too, however I only ever ended up getting the mini version which wasn't as great as this mini, but I bet the full size was fab! xx

  15. What an absolutely lovely post. It reminds me somewhat of the Benefit They're Real Mascara. I wonder if the two are quite different when you compare them. Great post :)

  17. I'm tempted to try this, but I wasn't a fan of the they're real so I'm not sure. It does look impressive on you though.

  18. I wasn't overwhelmed with this, and I don't think it anywhere as good as their previous. But maybe I'll be converted after a few more tries!

  23. I can't wait for this mascara to be released here, I've read really good reviews on it so I want to try. UK is so lucky to have Elle giving out sample size of this, haven't seen anything like it in Canada.

  39. I've been seeing Benefit products being featured on blog so I really want to try them out, especially their mascara. I'm currently using Mary Kay's Lash Love Lengthening Mascara and it's been great so far because it makes my lashes stand out and it doesn't clump. It's also perfect for my simple everyday look. I would still love to try that mascara out though! xx
