Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Review + Launch

Last week I got to go along to the NZ launch for Benefit's new mascara 'Roller Lash'. The new mascara was inspired by old school hair rollers, so it was only fitting that the event was held at the popular hair salon 'Dry & Tea'! Not only did I get to play around with some benefit goodies, I also got to have my hair blow waved, talk about heaven! Today I thought I would share with you a few snaps from the event as well as my thoughts on the new mascara.


My thoughts in a nutshell//
Now, I am no mascara guru but thought I would attempt to give this bad boy a little mini review for you guys. I currently own Benefit's number one worldwide best selling mascara "They're Real". Depsite most people raving about "They're Real", I found it didn't do much for my short stubby lashes and often left black fallout all around my eyes. 
The new "Roller Lash"mascara however blew me away. I haven't quite got a handle on moving the strange curved wand, but the formula is great on my lashes. It gives incredible length which is definitely my top priority in a mascara. In terms of holding a curl, it does a pretty good job at that too, however I still have to go in with my trusty hair curler before applying the mascara. 
Overall, I think this mascara might just be one I will have to repurchase. Sorry Tara, I'm claiming this tube ;)

  2. These photos are beautiful - really do the gorgeous event justice. I like the mascara a lot, the wand is a bit strange to use at first but it has become a firm favourite.

  5. Wow, I heard so much about this new mascara and I am eager to give it a go, although I am very happy with the Lancome Hypnose Drama, that I wear for years. But I love novelties and you said it's good, so I think I will give it a go! And the style, sooo nice, like a vintage mascara! I like Benefit very much, in fact!

  18. I have been hearing crazy good things about this mascara lately! I wasn't a big fan of "They're Real" either. Definitely putting this on my beauty wishlist!
