New Release: Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Review

I've been so excited since Benefit announced that they were bringing out a new mascara and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I've been so poorly lately so after a hard day lying around in bed, my boyfriend brought home a copy of Elle magazine. I know, he's a keeper! He told me that he spotted a sample in it with the word Benefit on it and he knew that I'd love it. He was correct. I didn't realise exactly how crazy everyone was going for this until I looked on Instagram and everyone was talking about it. Benefit have certainly stormed up some hype with this. The question is, is it all just hype? 

Ok, so I have tried this and I must say my first impressions are pretty great. The idea behind Roller Lash is that the brush has been modelled on old velcro rollers by adding small 'hooks' to grab and curl your lashes. For those who use lash curlers, I have read that you wont need to after using this. I'm unsure of this comment though as I don't use lash curlers after an incident I had when I caught my eyelid (don't judge, I was about 10). 


I don't think there is a special technique to using this, I'm assuming it is all in the brush so I applied the mascara like usual. I found that it built up some length quite rapidly which meant that not too many coats were needed. The brush seemed to comb the lashes apart meaning that the mascara didn't clump and it defined each lash perfectly. I accidentally built up too much mascara on one area of lashes so I just used the underside of the brush which combed it out nicely. I'm actually really surprised at how much it defined and dramatised my lashes without looking too harsh.


My previous experience with Benefit mascaras is that they can be quite messy in the sense that it ends up flicking all over your eyelid and underneath whilst you're applying but this time it wasn't the case. The mascara is quite wet but the brush seemed to give me more control over where it was going. I actually love this. 


I was so impressed that I went to take a photo of my lashes but I found that I had misplaced my memory card?! Thankfully I had already taken some photos when I got the magazine but I'm unsure as of yet what I will do for blog posts in the meantime so bare with me. I'm going to keep using this mascara as I've only recently just got it. I'll update this post once I've used it a bit longer. For first impressions, this certainly hasn't done badly at all. It's definitely my favourite Benefit mascara. If you didn't grab the magazine in time ,as I know there has been a mad rush, the full size will be released in stores on February 26th so it isn't too long a wait. I'd definitely recommend it.


Have you tried Roller Lash yet?
