Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Launch at Sam McCauley Chemists

Last Thursday (when I just couldn't take himself moaning about his sore foot), I took myself down to Sam McCauley Chemist in Redmond Square, Wexford for some well needed down time!

I recently did a "first impressions" of the sample I got in a recent Elle magazine which you can find here, and I can say that my opinion still stands. I definitely love the the cute packaging of the full size and will forever see a curler for my hair in it. Yes, I went ahead and purchased it after using up my sample. Then then the launch happening sure I just couldn't resist! This for me is definitely a winner, especially as it's much easier to take off than my beloved They're Real and it is much nicer on me for day time.

No trip to the Benefit counter would be worth it without getting a Benefit Make-upper with Dawn. As so many of you asked about what I was wearing on my face after I put a picture up on Instagram I thought I would give you the list and prices below.

  1. I'm always a bit unsure of Benefit - it's the cutesie packaging that puts me off a bit. But your makeover looks great X

    1. Thanks Rebecca. I like the packaging but it can sometimes take away from how good the products actually are sometimes. xx

  2. Not a Benefit fan at all unfortunately, but you look fantastic, your makeup is so pretty, it would almost be enough to convince me to give them another chance! x

    1. Thank you Sharon, it was an enjoyable afternoon getting the makeover! I love Benefit, but that's not to say that i've had my disappointments with them too :-) xx

  3. Oh I loved that mascara based on the sample in Elle, I've heard there's a good few dupes out there, I think its maybelline lash sensation or something like that - I think my 'they're real' dried up pretty quickly so not sure I'm willing to spend the bucks on this offering in light of that!

    1. €26 is a lot of money and hard to part with especially when there are dupes. I have the new Maybelline one but haven't opened yet, so I'm interested to see how it compares x
