Today I received a very special package thanks to the Benefit team and it's all down to the brand new Roller Lash mascara release. Now, I have a niggling feeling that you're already aware of Benefit's latest offering so today's post is based more on my initial thoughts so far of Roller Lash and how to get your sample. A Roller Lash package from Benefit landed on my doorstep today and it made my day! Packed inside a gorgeous pink mini cosmetic case contained information about Roller Lash as well as some surprise goodies including the star guest - Elle magazine with a Roller Lash attached. So, Roller Lash as with most high end mascaras isn't going to come cheap. The full size mascara will be released in March and will retail at £19.50. So, is it worth the price tag?
I've heard some pretty big claims about the mascara before it even made it to my eyelashes. Reading the box tells me that a whopping 97% of testers said their lashes were visibly lifted. Roller Lash is called just that as its described as being a roller for your lashes in a mascara form. The brush is modelled on hair rollers with a curved design with tiny hooks to catch and lift the eyelashes. My eyelashes without mascara are non existent. My sister is the only person I know who is blessed with eyelashes that are actually visible with no makeup on - I'm not jealous at all! I tend to go for more thickening mascaras as I like the dramatic look so I was excited to try Roller Lash as it's all about curling and lengthening the lashes.
So far, after two separate tries of the mascara I am really impressed. It takes a lot to impress me with a mascara as I am super fussy! The brush is really easy to handle and it only takes a small amount of coats on my lashes for me to see an improvement. I never tend to bother with curling my eyelashes and I do agree that with Roller Lash you don't even need to. It's also perfect for bottom lashes as it was only the other day I was struggling to apply my mascara on the bottom lashes without getting smudges everywhere and Roller Lash solved that problem straight away. It picks up all the small lashes perfectly and gives a lot of length and curl. The only slight problem I would have with Roller Lash is that I do like quite a dramatic look so I may add a volumising mascara on top but for lengthening and curl - this is an essential in your makeup bag. I would definitely consider buying the full price mascara and I do think it's a lot better than They're Real. Now that you've found out a little more about Roller Lash and if you're a beauty lover like me, you're desperate to try it out, it's really easy to get your miniature sample. All you need to do is buy the Elle magazine as featured above, which costs £4.00 and as well as the magazine you'll find your Roller Lash sample.
