Benefit Roller Lash | Review

Hello lovelies,

How are you all doing today? I have been loving this mascara for a while now so I decided to write a review to tell you all about it.

I first tried this benefit mascara when I went away for the weekend. I had forgotten to pack a makeup bag! I thought I’d take a stroll down to boots and see what i could pick up. I found this lovely little gift set that included a miniature brow gel, primer and the roller lash mascara. Prior to this I had never purchased any products from benefit because to be honest i didn’t know if the product would be with the money.

The Packaging

Lets start of with the packaging, I received this full size version for christmas. This mascara came in a lovely box. I love the design of roller lash, my favourite colour is pink and i think the black works really well with it. The handle of the wand has a slight rubbery texture which makes it easier to undo and grip whilst using it (especially if you have just applied hand cream) As you can see it also has a sort of lattice design to the handle, i think the design and the feel of this product is really good quality.

The Wand

At first I wasn’t sure about this style of wand because i don’t always get on well with plastic bristles but I wanted to give it a try. I ended up being pleasantly surprised, with the mascaras I have tried before that have had plastic bristles I found that it made my lashes clump together which I’m not really a fan of. Instead it made my lashes look really fluffy and separated them well. This wand has a small curve in it which helps to reach all of the lashes .

Colour

The colour I chose was black, I mostly like to wear black mascara as have quite light eyelashes so I find I need as dark a colour as I can get to really bring out my lashes. This mascara adds a lot of colour to the lashes and helps to accentuate them! I love how dark this mascara makes my lashes.

Overall Performance

To summarise I really love this mascara, as it has a curved wand it help to give your lashes that extra curl that I definitely need. It also helps to reach all of the little lashes in between to give the best effect and to give the lashes volume. I think the packaging is lovely and I think the colour scheme is great. After receiving this as a gift for Christmas when it runs out I definitely do think I’ll be repurchasing it even thought it is the most expensive mascara I have owned at £20 I do think it is worth the price tag.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Review

Hello lovelies, recently I went on a little shopping trip and popped into Debenhams. I purchased the Goof Proof Brow Pencil I love the products benefit has to offer so read on to find out what I thought about this brow pencil!

I’ve been wanting to try out this product for quite a while now but I’ve just never thought about buying it. As I live so far away from shopping centres it’s hard to find the time to go, so when i saw the Benefit counter i immediately went over to it.

At first glance I loved that packaging and the aesthetic of the product as well as the box, it was neatly presented and on the actual product there isn’t too much going on as you can see from the picture. I really like the silver i think it stands out from anything I’ve got in my collection currently.

It was really good to see all of the products and be able to test them out rather than looking online and having to guess. A lovely lady helped me with the colour choice and put 2 different shades onto my brows, I tried out 2 and 3. I did like the look of number 2 but i thought it was a little too light for me as my hair is quite dark. We also looked at the shade 4 but i thought it looked far too dark for me, I’m not used to having bold brows so it was a different look.

I went with shade 3 becuase it’s more of a taupy colour, it’s not too light and not too dark and I think it goes well with my hair and complexion as I thought number 4 made me look a but washed out. It was quite a pricey product but I think it is worth the money as the quality is really good and i think it will last me quite a while.

The Gimme Brow product has a pencil at one end which you twist up and down to get more or less of the product, it is an angled pencil and is larger at one end so you can use the larger end for filling in the bulk of your brows and the smaller end can give you a more precise look for the end of the brows.

On the other end is a spoolie, I love that it comes with this because I think they are great and really useful when doing brows. I use the this end before putting the product in to get my brows into shape, then after I’ve applied the pencil I will go back through my brows with the spoolie to neaten it up and feather the product out. You can also use the it to make your brows look less harsh, if you feel you’ve put too much product in and they look a little too bold I just run the spoolie through and it will help to give you a more softer, natural looking brow.

I’ve been using the Gimme Brow pencil for about 2 weeks now and I’m loving it. The product stays in all day and gives me a natural look which is what I prefer. I would definitely recommend this product for it’s quality as it’s lovely.

What is your go to brow product? Have you tried the Gimme Brow pencil, what do you think of it? Let me know in the comments!
