Maybelline Lash Sensational Vs Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

roller lash dupeBefore I start to get into the bits of comparison and my thoughts, I want to admit when I saw The Sunday Girl Blog post, I ran out to my local grocery store to get hold of the ELLE Magazine(just to get my hands on the Benefits Roller Lash Mascara), and luckily I did manage to grab the last issue in the store. Phew that was a close call, but that brings me to this post.

I bought the Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara a week ago before getting my hands on the roller lash mascara, and I had already started enjoying the way that mascara made my non-existent lashes look prettier. That made me even more excited for the Benefits Roller Lash since the wand of those two mascara’s looks almost identical to me, with Maybelline’s wand being a little more curved.

Both the mascara’s seem to curler, lift, lengthen and add volume to my lashes. However I feel the formula of Benefit’s Mascara is a bit wet in comparison to the Maybelline, but that makes the whole layering process quite easier, where as with Maybelline you might want to work relatively fast. Another difference that I noticed was the Benefits Roller Lash has a glossy finish and doesn’t dry matt, which I really like for some odd reason. And the major difference is in the price tag, Maybelline retails for £7.99 (though there are being sold on a promotional price of £5.99 until the end of February) & Benefit Retails for £19.50. But apart from that I really feel Maybelline Lash Sensational could be a drugstore dupe for the Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara.

Keeping aside the minor differences, the best thing about these mascara’s is they are clump free, even though they are not waterproof formula, they don’t easily smudge around my eye balls and doesn’t even flake after a wear of good 7-8 hours.

I’d have to say, I love both these mascara’s from their packaging, to the fact they have plastic wand (which is my preference when is comes to mascara wands, I have some sort of huge love relation with it).

Hope this was helpful.
