I'm sure you're sick of reading reviews of Benefit's new Roller Lash Mascara (you can get a free sample in this month's Elle, if you didn't already know) so I thought I'd do a comparison with a potential dupe!
The wands on both mascaras are very similar however there's a big difference: a full-size Roller Lash will be retailing for £19.50 whereas Lash Sensational will cost you £5.99 (buy here). But are the two similar once applied?
So here's a before and after using the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
And then before and after using the Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara.
The wands are very similar; the Benefit wand is a little thinner but I didn't find applying one or the other any more difficult to work with. I love how you can comb the product through your lashes, curving upwards. I find Lash Sensational a little more thick in formula and I feel it gives more volume whereas the Benefit separates them slightly more. Both of them add an amazing amount of curl; which is the main selling point of the Roller Lash. I'll admit it: I NEVER curl my lashes. Even if I finish getting ready for a night out early I'd rather go and get myself a drink than sit with an eyelash curler! Therefore both of these products are amazing because you can get that curl without adding an extra step to your routine and it'll stay there all day.
Do I like Roller Lash? Yes. Would I spend £19.50 on it? Hmmm...I'm not quite sure. Maybe when I'm next in duty free I'll pick it up but I do think I prefer They're Real, so if I'm going to pay £20 for a Benefit mascara it'll be that one. So for now I'll be sticking to Lash Sensational! I'd definitely recommend grabbing a copy of Elle for £4 as it's worth giving it a go for yourself but for me right now I'm going to say Save.
Have you tried either of these mascaras? Will you be buying a full-sized Roller Lash?
