BENEFIT ROLLERLASH

Friday, 29 May 2015

Oh wow. That is one MAJOR close up of my face. 
I am never really one to talk about high end make up on my blog which is for two reasons:

1. I don't want to try a product, get attached and then not be able to afford more.

2. I like discovering gems in the drugstore. 

Anyway, todays post is about one highly anticipated product which I have been dying to try out ever since I heard about its release at the start of the year. A couple of weeks ago, I managed to get my mitts on Rollerlash*. Regardless of the fact that many beauty blogs have reviewed this product, well I am just going to add to the list okay... xD 

I was able to finally purchase Rollerlash via ASOS via CovetMe. If you haven't heard of covetme yet, it is a website where you are able to share links and you can get points for each person who click on your links, and in the end the points add up and you can redeem your voucher! If you are yet to sign up and are wanting to, then simply leave your email address below and I will send you a referral email. Simple as that. 

Lets get onto the review, shall we? I am a big fan of volume, length (ok, and abit of spidery leg-ness hence my previous love of Miss Manga by L'Oreal.) So I am glad to say that this mascara smashes my quota out of the park. As promised by the packaging, I feel that it made my lashes super curly and definitely lifts them. My natural lashes are reasonably curled anyway however I have struggled to find a mascara which keeps the lift throughout the whole day but this mascara has answered my prayers! I have also been after something to sort out my bottom lashes as usually I 

I also adore the packaging. Being that I usually admire Benefit from afar, I have come very familiar with their packaging with all their vintage-y vibes with a nod to hair curlers with this bottle in particular. The brush is quite different to what I have seen before, it has a curved wand to ensure that it can coat all of your lashes with the product and it also has little hooks (I'm not sure if that is the correct way of explaining it?) at the base of each bristle which I'm sure helps with the application too. 

The only downside to this mascara I have found is that it is a bit too wet for my liking (is that even a real thing???) Just after doing my mascara... I had a sneezing fit! With other mascaras I've had, I can sneeze just after application and *most* of it would stay put however with this one it did not hence, my "wet" conclusion. Fortunately I was able to salvage my make-up before grabbing the camera to take these rather up close and personal pictures of my paste-y profile.

Conclusion: Would I buy it again? YES and I already have. Oopsie. I went to a House of Fraser brand event (post and potential haul to follow) where I picked up a backup as I didn't really feel like I paid for the first one (that's how I justified it to myself in the store anyway!) I have also recommended it to one of my best blogging babes Laura from Off the Hanger Etc so I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it too.

  2. Great post and thank you for mentioning that it has wet formula becuase I was thinking about finally picking it up. I usually find difficult to work with wet formulas and even tough everyone is crazy about this one I should probably stick to They're real becuase I live for crazy volumized lashes

  4. Yes! It's definitely a thing and what a pain it is. Give it about two weeks or so and the wetness of your mascara will dry up a little :) X
