Benefit's newest release is their Roller Lash Super Curling and Lifting Mascara (due out on the 26th February 2015) i was lucky enough to get my hands on Elle Magazine this month which is giving Benefit Roller Lash away as this months freebie - such a generous and genius idea if you ask me. I'm not normally someone who buys Elle Magazine and if it wasn't for this being the free gift, i wouldn't have bothered either - magazines like this drive me crazy and personally aren't my cup of tea because you pay an absolutely fortune for what is essentially a magazine of adverts. Onto the review...

I was quite surprised to hear that Benefit were releasing a new mascara after the big success of They're Real Mascara. They're Real is one of my all time favourite mascara, the results it gives me is phenomenal and i just love it - so it was going to take a lot to make me think otherwise.

However, were They're Real focuses on length, Roller Lash focuses more on volumising the lashes. It's said to lift lashes and give a long lasting curl. It has what Benefit describes as a 'Hook 'n' Roll' brush, designed and positioned to catch, lift and curl the lashes - the brush is also curved so it fits against the lashes really well, so that the product is distributed evenly amongst the lashes.

Now usually when a product like this has just been released a million and one posts fly around all hyping it up and it becomes quite difficult to establish what reviews are genuine and which have just gotten a bit carried away with the hype but i can quite honestly say (hand on heart) that this mascara is pretty damn good.

It adds some length to the lashes but the volume and curl it gives is amazing - it gives you such thick and full looking lashes and it separates them out quite well too, which I'm assuming is down to the 'Hook 'n' Roll' brush. To be honest, the results surprised me a little because I'd already assumed it wouldn't be any better than my beloved They're Real mascara but its definitely on par and i absolutely loved how it made my lashes look.

It's not replaced They're Real as my favourite but that's because they are both equally amazing but for different reasons. They're Real is incredible at giving me length to my lashes, whereas Roller Lash is the one I'd turn too for voluminous and full looking lashes. So far I'm very impressed with Roller Lash and i think anyone who likes a volumising mascara that can really curl the lashes, you should try and get your hands on Elle Magazine to try this out.

Have you tried Roller Lash? What are your thoughts?
Which do you prefer They're Real or Roller Lash, I'd love to know?

  2. I've been using this lately too and I absolutely love it! I think I might even prefer it to They're Real because it holds a curl so much better x

  4. Really enjoying this mascara, I got it as a freebie from ELLE too. It does give an amazing curl and lasts all day, mines still in place and still curled and I've been wearing it 12 hours now! x

  5. I haven't tried this yet but i'm definitely intrigued :) Is it as much as a pain to take off as They're Real?
