Happy Monday, loves! I’m starting a week long feature on high end mascaras. I bought a bunch of travel size mascaras at Sephora a few months ago and have been testing them all out for a hot minute. So today we are taking a look at Benefits newest mascara that has been blowing up the beauty world.
$24.00 at benefitcosmetics.com (a set is available with a deluxe mini)
$24.00 at macys.com (with a free deluxe mini)
$24.00 at sephora.com
$24.00 at ulta.com (with a gift w/ purchase until 8/27/16)
the travel size can be found on each of these websites for $12
This mascara is one of my favorites of the ones I have been testing out. The brush is slightly curved with tighter shorter rubber bristles inside the curve and longer more separated bristles. The cute 50’s flashback packaging is just a nice touch but I wouldn’t expect anything less from benefit.
The formula of the actual mascara is the perfect balance between a more wet and more dry mascara. I tend to prefer more dry formulas but those can sometimes flake on the face and not hold a curl as well as more wet formulas. I do find that this mascara holds my curl better than most. I have fairly straight lashes that in a few hours almost always lose their curl but this one keeps the curl almost all day long.
I am someone who likes my lashes to still look like eyelashes after I put on mascara. I love dark long lashes but I hate when they start to clump. This is a beautiful mascara to lengthen and volumize without causing clumping. Your lashes look like you have mascara on but only to darken because you already have perfect long fluttery lashes underneath.
Unfortunately, although I love the way it looks, I had to stop using this mascara. I am allergic to some ingredient in it so every time I remove it, my eyes burn and water profusely. If I weren’t allergic I would definitely be repurchasing this mascara.
If you are looking for an everyday mascara that lengthens and volumizes I would give the roller lash a try! If you have super sensitive eyes, I recommend testing out the travel size before you go purchase the full size.
As always please recommend any other products you would like to see me test out! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog on the right hand side of the page, so you receive updates when I post.
