Benefit Rollerlash - Worth the Hype?

BENEFIT ROLLERLASH*


Right off the bat Im going to say "I LIKE THIS MORE THAN THEY'RE REAL". Yup, the most iconic and probably the best selling mascara of all time has a rival... weirdly from the same brand. Benefit's latest drop in the form of Benefit Roller lash has blown me away and has the Lily Melrose seal of approval.

Designed to lift and curl the lashes in one step this stuff is the bomb. Finally a mascara that does what it claims. A few coats later and my lashes look lifted and super black without a clump in sight. Super inky black finish, plastic comb which is designed to get right into the corners of the eyes and not drying in the slightest. This mascara is perfect for minimal makeup days as it really opens up the eyes and adds drama without smudging or clumping.

Compared to They're Real it's 100% better.  While I do sort of like They're Real, I've raved about in it the past thanks to it's volume boosting and lengthening properties but I always had a niggle - It's SO dry. The stuff would flake off within a few hours leaving me looking like some sort of panda with dry itchy eyes. This on the other hand ticks all my personal eyelash boxes and has become a firm favourite in my lash line up.
Benefit Rollerlash retails for £19.50 and is available on counter now

  1. So many disappointments, this sounds like something worth trying.

  2. What a pity that it is so dry ... I don't really like it to look like a panda :) But in in the beginning this Mascara sounds good.

    1. I dont know if you read it properly but I say They're Real by Benefit is Dry, This isnt.

  3. I love this mascara and like you I prefer it to they're real. It's so much easier to get off at the end of the day too and you don't wake up with big panda eyes the morning after.

    I'm a total convert.

  4. I've been using a mini version and i've really liked it. I loved They're Real but I completely agree with it being dry - it used to leave my eyes so itchy. I'll be picking up a full size version of this though!

  16. I really want to try this but I thought I would see what a few people thought of it first because I liked They're Real! but I wasn't in love with it. I may have to try this one out though.

  18. This mascara is indeed very good! I've used it once only and I was so surprised by the result, my lashes looked way longer! It makes me want to buy it in the full size :p

  20. I've heard so many mixed reviews about this so far, I'm definitely intrigued to test it out myself... I didn't particularly like the They're Real mascara at first, but after it dried out a little I found myself liking it more and more. I'm definitely interested to see how this compares!

  22. This mascara is good :)
    But its not a waterproof formulation so unfortunatley doesnt work for me and makes my lashes droop!

    Have a lovely day ♥

  27. Hey Lily,

    Was wondering if you've reviewed the following benefit products in the past: I really love using high beam, I feel it does wonders for my cheek bones--and I wanted to know if you have used sun beam before and what your thoughts were--I'm fair to medium and I do not want it to appear yellow on my skin

  32. I'm really loving the looks of this one. I like the They're Real mascara, I just hate how hard it is to get off. I don't want to have to buy a specific eye makeup remover from Benefit to get my mascara off, you know? Right now my favorite mascara is Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes. After I finish that one up, I'll try this one out :)

  41. I'm liking this mascara too! It doesn't curl my lashes bc I have SUPER straight lashes, so I have to wear a waterproof mascara first and then apply this mascara on top. The effects are amazing tho, it's pretty on par with the they're real mascara!

  43. Oh I was looking forward to getting this but if it's dry then it's no good for me, I already get black under eyes off wearing any makeup so one that does it for anyone just is a no go. Thanks for sharing! And for the honesty before I wasted my money x

  47. I think I still prefer my they're real mascara. I don't find it dry or flaky. I like the bigger brush too.

  49. Glad to see you liked this one, I've been reading some mixed reviews about it. As long as the tube doesn't dry as fast as They're real, I'm hopping on the hype. x

  58. After being in relationship with him for 3 years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the other ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, lotto, his email is DRAISEDIONSPELLCASTER@OUTLOOK.COM you can email him if you need his help in your relationship or any other problem like wining lottery your problem can never remain the same again, it will turn a thing of the past in your life.
