Look at me writing a beauty post! Today I'm reviewing the Benefit RollerLash mascara, which comes free in March's Elle magazine as an exclusive sample. Now, don't get me wrong, I do know what make up is and I know basic rules of how to apply it, but I'm no expert and the terms held within this post are likely to be totally incorrect so I do apologise for that if you're expecting some sassy article with fancy language - I'll keep the fancy language for my thoughts and feelings thanks.
BUT ANYWAY! The RollerLash mascara is actually rather fabulous, I've never owned a Benefit mascara before in favour of opting for cheaper Rimmel versions, yet I can understand why people spend so much money on a designer version. Even though today I'm letting my face breathe and going make up free, (see this post here for my reasoning) I shoved some of this mascara on my eyelashes just to see what it would look like without the rest of my face being applied and I was shocked at the results. The stubs of eyelashes that I own suddenly turned into rather large stubs, I was so happy with the change that came after one layer was applied with zero smudging and zero clumping either. Which for a girl whose eyes water when she walks into wind is a dream come true, I'm telling you. Yet I don't know whether it's worth £19.50, I don't think I can justify that price for a little bottle of product. I think if I see a sample again I will buy it, but not at the price its recommended retail price.
The RollerLash mascara from Benefit is available currently in sample form in Elle magazine, which retails at £4. You can also buy it from the Benefit website here where it retails at £19.50.
