Mascara mini samples review - MAC False Lashes Extreme and Benefit Roller Lash

 I ran out of my mascara about six months ago and found a couple of mini mascara samples in my make up bag. So instead of buying a new mascara, I thought I would test these out instead.

I like my eyelashes to be thick black and long, basically as close to false eyelashes as possible. I have never managed to find the perfect mascara for me and have been on the hunt for years which is why whenever I do go out with friends, I usually have to wear false eyelashes.



The first of my samples is MAC's False Lashes Extreme Black. The name of this had me filled with such high hopes. The mascara unfortunately does not give a false eyelashes look at all. If does give an extreme black colour as the name claims though which I do like. I was expecting huge thick long lashes and the mascara just didn't live up to my expectations. However, if you are looking for a good every day mascara which isn't too over the top then I would recommend you give this a try.




My second sample is Benefit's Roller Lash. I have read so much about this online on various blogs and websites. I love the wand on this mascara, it really separates each lash, not leaving any clumps behind. My eyelashes look a lot longer and thicker which in turn really open up my eyes.




Overall, I would say the Benefit a Roller Lash was my favourite of the two mascaras by far which really surprised me as I really believed I had found a winner with MAC's False Lashes mascara.

Would I buy either again? I wouldn't buy the MAC mascara again but I would possibly buy the Benefit mascara. However, it still isn't my dream mascara so I will continue my hunt for a mascara that will give me the dramatic look I am seeking.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to what mascara I should try next?

Love Lauren

  1. I was excited to see the MAC sample but sad to hear it never lived up to expectations! I was going to try this one out too! I do however love benefit mascaras as they all work and make my lashes look incredible <3

  10. I don't like Benefit mascaras too much and never was lucky with MAC, but I don't have any fool-proof recommendations either. Somehow I am never satisfied enough to repurchase...

  11. I absolutely love Benefit's Roller Lash! I'd always used Too Faced Better Than Sex and I thought I would never be converted but it gives really nice fluttery long lashes!

  12. Mascaras are a must in my beauty bag. I really don't have a brand I stick to. Anything goes for me, because I'm not too fussy when it comes to beauty products.
    Have a blessed week, Beautiful. :)

  15. I'm not a Mac mascara fan either. I also have the sample of roller lash and I agree with everything you said! It's good, not my ideal mascara but I will probably buy it. Great post X

  25. I thought the Mac one would be the better of the two as well! Definitely made me want to try the Rollar Lash though, it sounds really good!

  26. I definitely thought the MAC one would be much better than it was - what a shame! Benefit, however, usually do really good mascaras :) xx

  28. I love benefit products but surprisingly have never tried any of their mascaras. Might just have to pick up Roller Lash and test it out.

  35. I love Roller Lash! I have a mini version too, I know I'm going to be gutted when it runs out as it's quite expensive for a mascara :/
