Battle Of The Benefit Mascaras

Battle Of The Benefit Mascaras
One thing us beauty fanatics can really appreciate is when higher end brands release pretty, handbag material samples of products that are saving us an arm and a leg. Benefit is one of those brands that always launch makeup samples and a lot of these are available in Elle magazines. I have managed to accumulate and try all of the Benefit mascaras out down to their inexpensive samples! 

But which mascara would I purchase again and again and again?

Bad Gal: This was the first mascara I had tried from Benefit and I shockingly didn't like it whatsoever, Sorry Bad Gal fans. If you have read my blog for awhile you will know the dreadful panda eyes is an instant turn off for an eye product for me. This mascara unfortunately left me looking like I belonged in a zoo, it wasn't a good look. It did add volume and it did lengthen my lashes to an extent but nothing that a cheaper brand couldn't of done. I also found this clumped my lashes together a lot too which isn't great for a £15-£17 mascara. I am unsure if the larger applicator would make the difference but for me this product was a no no.

They're Real: I have a good 3 or 4 They're Real mascaras in my makeup drawer which speaks for itself really. I fell in love with this mascara from the moment I first applied it to my lashes. It adds such a great deal of volume without making your lashes look too long, it also is buildable but one coat always does the trick for me! No panda eyes either which great! - no need to worry about my eyes by 5pm. It doesn't clump and it gets all the lashes perfectly! I definitely think this one is worth the money and it most certainly deserves to be the no.1 best seller.

Roller Lash: This is the latest mascara to my collection and I've loved and hated it. When I first got it I didn't think much of it and I didn't understand the hype around it. It didn't really do anything to my lashes that was amazing so I stopped using it for a few weeks. I then tried to give it a go again and oh my goodness I can understand why everyone loves it! The wand has a curve to it that makes it easier to get those corner areas that straight wands don't get as easily. Benefit recommend you use this then go over with the They're Real for sexy drama but I am yet to try this as I think this mascara alone gives me all the drama I need! If you are currently hating this mascara give it another try!

So there it is my reviews on all the Benefit mascaras I personally would purchase both the They're Real and Roller Lash over and over again. Unfortunately I wouldn't repurchase the Bad Gal mascara as it just wasn't for me but who knows I may return to it like I did with Roller Lash!

  1. I've not tried Bad Gal but I absolutely hated They're Real, didn't get the hype at all. Roller Lash on the other hand I really liked, I liked it more once the formula had dried out a little. Really great post!xx

    1. I think that could be why I liked Roller lash too as I didn't like it the first month or 2 but then loved it!

  4. I've only tried Rollerlash but I didn't really like it either. I am planning on giving it another go but I'm not really expecting a lot! :)

  5. It's funny that Bad Gal was your least favourite because that seems to be the one they push the most, although if it's not great maybe that's why they need to really push it!

  6. I only use Roller Lash at the moment because I ran out of They're Real! They're Real is my all time favourite but I want to use up Roller Lash before I buy a new one. I've never tried Bad Gal and probably won't if it isn't as good as They're Real.

  7. I totally agree with your little reviews for each mascara.

    Bad Gal- This was also the first mascara that I ever used. I loved it to begin with but found it to be really clumpy, and that is a huge pet peeve of mine!

    They're real- I have so many mini's of this product that I haven't yet had to purchase my own. But I know that as soon as the ones I have run out I will be repurchasing it!

    Roller Lash- I was so excited to get the mini in the Elle mag subscription but I was so disappointed when I tried it out. I don't know whether the wand had too much product on, or my lashes were not curled enough beforehand, but I really hated the results I got. So I haven't tried it since. Perhaps I need to try it out again!

    Lovely blogpost!

  8. Love this review! I work for Benefit so I find it really interesting to see what others think about the products. Personally, I'm a huuuuge Roller Lash fan. It's the best mascara I've ever used and works so well for me. I'm not hugely fussed on the others but they work so well on other people, especially They're Real! Some of my customers are such hardcore fans that they won't even let me try Roller Lash on them, haha. Bad Gal was the first mascara I was ever bought so I have a soft spot for it but it isn't as good as the others and it's not that popular with customers either to be honest. Great post, lovely :)

    This is such a lovely post :) I'm looking forward to all of this too and a wee beer in the sunshine too! Haha.

  15. 100% agree with you! I loved Roller Lash from the second I picked it up, and They're Real has been a staple in my makeup bag for-ev-er. Bad Gal Lash, on the other hand, doesn't do anything for me x
