It's a Lash-Off

It's been a while since I've done a proper review of beauty items here, but let's change that.
Here's 2 mascaras that I'm sure all you beauty/makeup lovers would've heard off and maybe even tested out yourselves.
I've featured these 2 in my April Favourites and now let me tell you why.
Benefit's Roller Lash - this mascara has been floating around in the blogosphere since it's release and rightly so as it really is true to it's description: 
'It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls…while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours.'

Pros: The plastic brush that differs from the normal mascara brush that I am more accustomed to really does hook onto the lashes and gives them a good curl thus rendering eyelash curlers redundant. It also allows you to get in the very nooks and crannies of your eyelashes with the bristles all the way to the end, always handy to get to those tiny and unreachable lashes.

Cons: Although the formula is not as voluminous as I'd like it to be, you can always layer it and add more to get the volume of your preference.
If you're using the mascara for your bottom lashes too, it eventually leaves a trail under your eyes after long wear so I'd definitely look out for that.

Benefit actually suggests that you use Roller Lash for a first layer to curl your lashes and top it off with their other best selling mascara 'They're Real' to get more volume but I find that you can just use any other normal mascara to layer with if you've got a tighter budget.

Price: Roller Lash retails for £19.50 which is in mascara world a little bit on the high price but worth every penny you spend on it.

Maybelline's Lash Sensational - alike Benefit's Roller Lash this mascara also gives the eyelashes a curl although not as much as the previous one. 

Pros: It's curved brush like it's famous sister 'The Falsies' also creates a good curled eyelash effect although I would recommend still using eyelash curlers for those with shorter lashes like myself. 
Similar to Roller Lash, the brush also helps you get in the very inner and corner lashes of your eyes.
Formula wise, I find it's more voluminous than Roller Lash and dries out slower than The Falsies.

Cons: Using it for your bottom lashes will guarantee a trail after a few hours, definitely some in just 3 hours so I'd recommend using another mascara for your bottom ones.

Price: Lash Sensational retails for 7.99 in drugstores which is over half the price less than Roller Lash. If you're after something cheaper then I'd definitely recommend trying this one.

Have you tried any of these items? Let me know what you thought of them? What's you favourite mascara, I'd love to know as I'm a mascara fan and I always love trying out new ones. xo

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, I bought these items with my own money and all opinions are my very own.

  2. I love the benefit mascara's specially they're real and i need to get the new one !

  3. I really want to try the Maybelline mascara, I already tried one from benefit and I didn't like it at all.

  4. I have to try the Maybelline one, I have read many good reviews about it.

  5. I have got to check out Roller Lash. I love lengthening mascaras without clumping. So it may be for me but I heard some people say it's not worth the hype. And Benefit is always really hyped, so I'm scared! / creative lifestyle blog.

  6. Great post! Has helped my mascara making decision! ♥

  7. I just bought the Maybelline mascara and I look forward to trying it! I don't normally have a problem with my mascara smudging so I guess we'll see!


  8. Nice review. I think I have the Benefit mascara in my freebies for Sephora. I look forward to trying it.

    Lovely review!

  10. I never knew the roller lash was so similar to the maybelline one. I'm not a massive fan of the maybelline mascara, it smudges so bad on me, but i'm sure the benefit one is better. xx

  28. Cool post :)

  29. I have to try out both, as I'm currently searching for my new favourite mascara. I've been using some high-end products in the past, but when it comes to mascaras, I'm not sure it they make that much of a difference. Would like to try something cheaper. I'm not really convinced to this type of brushes, though. I've always used 'regular' ones.
