Does It Work? Benefit Roller Lash Review


Like a lot of other Benefit's new product launch, Roller Lash* made a huge wave in the beauty world. There were a lot of hype about how much this mascara curls your lashes, and you don't need a lash curler ever once you've tried this mascara. 

Being Asian and having straight lashes is the biggest issue when comes to dealing with mascara. I usually have to curl my lashes with lash curler, using a thin coat waterproof mascara, then apply any non-waterproof mascara of my choice to finish the look. Not just hard to remove the waterproof mascara at the end of night, but the amount of time I have to spend on just applying mascaras and curling lashes are really dragging the time for my makeup routine.

But does it work like it claimed on the packaging?




The mascara wand of Roller Lash* is rubber/silicone which is the type of wand that i like. It has a subtle curve with slightly different sharp spikes on either side. The spikes are claimed to grab your lashes and give them a curl when applying your mascara.

Now let's to see the results in action! I usually use lash curler everyday, but for this post and the pictures below, I only used mascara on its own without using lash curler or any waterproof mascara base like I usually would.



As you can see from all three photos above, Roller Lash* definitely gives your lashes curls and length, even on Asian lashes!! I also compared it to Benefit They're Real Mascara as reference. They're Real also gives a nice 'lift' to your lashes, but it doesn't make your lashes curvey after they get lifted. Also, Roller Lash* makes my lashes look more separated and gives more length, while They're Real gives more volume and make my lashes look a lot thicker.

Now I'm safe to say that I'm quite impressed by this mascara! I can finally have a mascara that I could just apply and it's done for everyday usage. Although I still wouldn't say goodbye to my lash curler - for the days I'm wearing fuller makeup, I would still go through my regular routine with lash curler and waterproof mascara as base to achieve maximum length and curves.

Roller Lash* is available at Smith & Caughey's for NZ$45.00 in New Zealand, and available at Sephora and lots of other retailers for US$24.00 in US.

  1. It looks great on your lashes! I've read mixed reviews on this one. It looks like your lashes have a little natural upwards growth to them and the mascara helps make them curl more. Lovely! I've only tried They're Real and it didn't really work for me.

  2. When I first got hands on this I couldn't apply it very well to get the same results but now I figured out! You should let your lashes get into the 'hooks' from the wand and push it upwards when applying this mascara. I guess it does depend on lashes still, but Roller Lash definitely gives more of a curve instead of leaving your lashes straight compared to They're Real :) Hopefully this is helpful xx

  3. I prefer longer length but it does look nice, i think i will stick with my L'Oreal Telescopic one x

  4. Wish the Telescopic could work for me, it does make my lashes look really long but then it just falls down and look straight even if I curl my lashes before hand :(

  5. I'm still trying to get the hang of this, I've only had it a day or two! But I agree it really does curl! I do love volume in lashes though so I'm considering buying they're real for a top coat!

  6. I agree Roller Lash definitely isn't a go-to for volume. Have a look of Collection Does It All mascara, it's a pretty spot on dupe for They're Real and I'm doing a post on them at the end of this month! xx

  11. Definitely if you have a Benefit counter around you! I wish we have all the brands from America here too so I could go crazy swatching everything before buying haha

  12. Yup Roller Lash is definitely more of an everyday mascara, and that's why I said I would still go for my other routines for days I wear more makeup :) Thanks for the read xx

  13. I couldn't use it very well at the start either but finally got it! You really gotta practice and get your lashes into the 'hooks' on the wand to get them up and lifted

  16. This really looks like it gave you a pretty good result! I see lots of definition and more volume although not much length or more curl like you mentioned. I'm still dying to try the 'their real' mascara! ugh!
