As an absolutely ginormous fan of Benefit makeup, I was incredibly happy to recently be sent my very own Roller Lash Mascara by House of Fraser (previously, I had only owned the mini/tester version and although I had fallen in love with it, unfortunately hadn't got round to getting my hands on the full-sized version after it ran out). Now I finally have my own Roller Lash though (which you can find HERE, amongst a whole host of other beauty products on the House of Fraser website), I am reaching out to use it everyday, and therefore thought it would be nice to write up a little review of sorts on it today...and also to tell you all about the House of Fraser Beauty Event which is happening right now, and is very exciting indeed!!
First up, let me just tell you how much I love the packaging of Roller Lash- it really is pretty in every single way, from its font/logo to its colour scheme, it definitely makes for an absolutely gorgeous photo (hopefully my above image has at least done it some justice). Moreover, the actual bottle that the mascara comes in is also rather lovely as you may have seen before in the numerous photos of it online and in magazines (if not, I have also took a few photos of that below). For £19.50 though, you can really see where your money is going with this product, as it really has been made to a very high standard and before I have even got onto talking about the product itself, the bottle and packaging already show the extra detail added that make it worthy of paying a few extra pounds more for than your average mascara.
I will now obviously tell you all a little about the mascara itself though as well, because what use is a pretty bottle if the product inside of it is useless, right? Well, trust me, there is no need to fear of shoddy brushes or clumpy lashes with Roller Lash just like so many other Benefit products that I have owned previously, this mascara really does stand out as being simply marvellous at it's job and immediately puts some of the similar products I have tried from other brands to shame.
The wand of this product is absolutely fantastic in the respect that it reaches pretty much every single eyelash; as you can hopefully see below, it is thin enough to find even the tiniest of lashes and give them a little more volume, whilst the effect of the strokes of mascara on the whole is still enough to create a bold eye effect. My lashes feel effortlessly lengthened and do look rather striking with this product on, and the liquid also ceases to dry in a clumpy way as many others do, and instead stays looking fresh and smooth all day long.
You have probably guessed from my previous tirade of compliments, that I am rather in love with this product and have therefore made it pretty much my sole mascara to use on a daily basis, despite the fact that I only received it just a couple of days ago. I would at this point go so far as to say that I do in fact like Roller Lash a lot more than They're Real- the wand is a lot more flexible on this product, and the curling/exaggeration of the lashes is a lot nicer, in the respect that the lashes don't end up looking clumpy. The sole negative with Roller Lash though, is that I have found it really quite difficult to remove at the end of the day (some might see this as a positive though, as it does mean that you get no black smears under the eyes whilst your out and about, but upon makeup removal it is a bit tough to get all the product off).
As I previously mentioned though, this amazing Mascara was sent to me as part of the House of Fraser Beauty Event, which has already started now (it started yesterday/25th August), but I have in fact spoken about about several times on my social media, so if you follow me you may have noticed me talking about it.
Anyway, you can find out more about the Event below, but in the meantime I would seriously recommend a look at the House of Fraser website anyway, due to just how much lovely makeup they stock!!
So, House of Fraser have their Beauty Event from 25th August to 11th September this year, and it generally involves getting '£10 off when you spend £50 or more on beauty, including one of their selected products.'
Of course if you are interested in learning more about the event, you can take a look on the House of Fraser website (HERE) and muse through all the products involved, although I have also included a short summary of the items that you have to invest in to be eligible for the offer, just below also (although you can also see them in the above image too)...
