It’s #SundaySplurge time again and this time round is kind of special, because I’m talking about a particular product I would 9/10 times recommend the drugstore option for: Mascara. Most of you know I am rarely impressed enough with luxury mascaras enough to justify the higher price tag, with the exception this particular mascara that the splurge seems totally worth it. Yep, I’m talking about the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.
I originally raved about it in my review of Benefit Roller Lash. I was surprised mostly by the fact that it really did lift my uncurled eyelash on its own. These are my fine, sparse, stick straight, downwards pointing lashes, lifted without the use of a lash curler. I know, I was surprised too.
The formula is uber black, and slightly wetter in texture, which normally can lead to clumpy lashes if you’re not careful, but the patented Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush really grabs the lashes, and layers very well on top of itself. In fact, I don’t find myself need multiple coats to build this up at all, it gets your lashes look pretty dramatic quite quickly. I actually really like this on my lower lashes as well, the brush gets to even the tiniest nonexistent ones and coats them, thanks to the spoon-like curve to the brush.
As for staying power, thankfully this formula isn’t as near impossible to get off as its older sister, the They’re Real Mascara, but holds up smudge and flake free just a long.
Overall, if you wanted to treat yourself to a great product, with adorable packaging and a really unique quality to it, I would suggest a little splurge on the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara!
What was the last product you splurged on? Was it worth it?
