$24.00 at sephora.com

$24.oo at ulta.com (free gift w/ purchase)

They’re Real has a rubber bristled brush (say that five times fast). There are mostly really short bristles mixed in with some medium length to get in to the root of the lash. At the end of the wand the bristles come to a little half circle that is intended for the inner corner lashes and lower lashes.

Now this mascara claims to lengthen your lashes to new heights but I think it is underwhelming. I find that it is such a wet formula that it really clumps your lashes together. You also have to be careful to not blink too aggressively or you’ll ruin your eyeshadow.

Similar to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, the brush comes out with way too much product. The bristled end only useful if you wipe off the extra product at least 5 times and even then its very easy to get mascara on the inner corners and lower lids.

Im actually really surprised that it is so highly acclaimed on beauty sites because it doesn’t give impressive length and is just a wet spidery mess. If you want to give it a shot I highly recommend trying out the smaller version to see if its worth your money. I had the same problem as the Benefit Roller Lash with it irritating my eyes so I would keep that in mind.

review: benefit roller lash mascara

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.

prices range:

$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.
