A couple of weeks ago, along with every other girl on the planet, I picked up a copy of ELLE just to get my hands on the new Benefit mascara. Benefit mascaras have been raved about for years but up until now I've never understood the hype.

I've been using Benefit's Roller Lash daily since I got it, so here's what I think...

I'll start with my favorite aspect of it and that is just how thick and long it makes my lashes look after using this. The first time I tried this out I was really surprised to see how much longer my lashes looked. It's not advertised as a lengthening mascara but after just one coat I noticed a considerable difference. Although this product gave me super long lashes they weren't very defined and sometimes clumped together. I like to use a couple of coats of mascara as my lashes are just so short and it can be hard to get a nice result with this product.

Another thing I loved about this mascara was the brush. It's a curved brush which it meant to curl your lashes, which it did! I also love how small the bristles on the brush are as I've never been a fan of pipe cleaner looking brushes. The fact the that were two types of bristles was also really useful to get to even my smallest lashes. I did however find the sample size very hard to use as the wand just wasn't long enough. I know this wouldn't be a problem with the full sized product but for anyone hoping to pick up a few of the samples its worth knowing.

The last thing that really impressed me about this mascara it just how long it lasts. The curl on my lashes stays for hours and the mascara itself didn't seem to budge much either. With other mascaras I've used in the past I've felt the need to top it up during the day and I didn't need to at all with this one. I bet if I didn't remove my mascara at night it would still be there a few days later. Although I love that it last for hours it does come with a downside. When I want to remove my mascara I found that it was very waterproof and even with makeup remover it took a bit of scrubbing to be completely gone. This doesn't bother me too much although I doubt all that rubbing would be too good for your eyes.

So that's what I thought of the new Benefit mascara. All in all I thought it was a good product but I feel like the full size is a bit pricey and I'm not sure if I will be parting wish my cash just yet. Overall I did enjoy using the mascara and loved the look of it on my lashes so for that reason I would give it a 7/10.

Have you tried the new Roller Lash Mascara? What did you think of it?
