Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

            

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:

What it is:
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. 
What it does:

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!

Too Faced – “Better Than Sex” Mascara

I wanted to love this, I really did. Everyone has been RAVING about it so when I saw the combo of a mini version of this and a mini shadow insurance I scooped it up!

Let’s start with Too Faced’s claims…

Take home our Better Than Sex mascara and all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled. One application of our collagen-fueled formula and touch of our specially shaped brush will leave you begging for more. One coat and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and they’re reaching unbelievable heights of drama. Three coats and you’ll believe in magic. $23.00

How it is in real life…

I have to say I agree with all of those claims. One coat and you literally start to look like you have falsies even though it’s not a fiber mascara. Two coats was perfect for me but three started to look a little spidery for my taste. The brush is a really effective shape and helps get to those shorter inner lashes plus it holds a curl beautifully.

The reason I can’t love it though is because about 2/3 through the work day I check the mirror and it is all under my eyes. It flakes and smudges like crazy on me. I tried so hard to love it but it just does not work with my watery eyes.

Have you tried it? What did you think?
