I was SO incredibly excited to get this in my most recent Sample Society Box. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I’m ready to share my thoughts with y’all! First off, let’s see what Benefit’s claims are…
What Benefit Says It Does:
A mascara inspired by hair rollers, this super-curling and lifting mascara gives a sexy, wide-eyed look. Its patent-pending Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl even short and straight lashes.
Bye-bye, eyelash curler! Roller Lash not only lifts and super-curls, but this instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours, is easy to remove, and contains provitamin B5 and serine, known for their lash-conditioning benefits.
What I Think It Does:
I do like this mascara a lot. The formula is nice, on the thinner side, and glides on the lashes easily. I do not think this actually “curls” your lashes with the “hook and roll technology.” If you curl you lashes before you apply it it does hold the curl all day long, which I really like. It lengthens nicely and doesn’t flake or smudge on me, even on the lower lashes. I have very watery eyes so that’s a huge win for me.
Although it lengthens really well, I don’t find it to be volumizing, it doesn’t claim to be, I just have longer lashes and am looking for a more volumizing mascara most times.
At the end of the day if I had to choose between this and the Benefit “They’re Real” mascara, I would choose “They’re Real.” It does all of the same things as the “Roller Lash” plus I find it to be more volumizing.
What are your thoughts on the Roller Lash mascara? I’d love to know!
