Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara // £19.50
I haven't used a Benefit mascara since BADgal when I was about 13, if I remember correctly it got flakely and smudged by the end of the day. Which is why I was so happy to see this sample in Elle! And even though you've read a hundred reviews since Roller Lash made its debut early this year, another one can't hurt right .. ?

'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.'

Grabs ✓ separates  lifts ✓ curl ✓. I love this mascara, it does exactly what it says on the box - not to mention how pretty the box is. It holds and lifts my long lashes all day, which is something that no other mascara does. As well as leaving no clumps, as the 'hook n roll' brush grabs every single on of my lashes and makes them look ink black and super long. This also makes it amazing for your bottom lashes and the skinny wand (which is not something I normally go for) makes its really easy to apply. 

However, there are some minor-ish things that I don't like about it too, like the really wet formula. I'm someone who likes 'dry mascara's' is that even a thing?! so I can build up the layers quickly and without to much mess. So I do have to scrape quite a lot of product off the brush and leave it for 30 seconds before I use it. It's a pain, but sometimes a girl needs to make sacrifices for all day curl. I also find it quite hard to remove, aka I can't get it off with a makeup wipe *beauty bloggers scream in terror* and I actually have to use my ultra bland cleanser. I think this is because of the water resistant and satin finish as it keeps the lashes feeling conditioned and you don't feel like they may snap if you rub to hard.

Despite the bad qualities I still absolutely love this mascara and still grab it every time I need my lashes to stay in place all day. At £19.50 it is pretty pricey but I honestly think I'll be going out to buy a replacement as soon as this runs out!
