Benefit Roller Lash Review

When I went to The Professional Beauty Ireland Event in Dublin last year, I made use of the 10% off all Benefit makeup and got myself a Benefit Roller Lash mascara. I was pretty excited about this mascara because their They're Real mascara is my absolute favourite. 
I have to say I was disappointed by this mascara.When I first used it, I hated it. I couldn't understand how so many people liked it. I found it made my eyelashes so clumpy, and not very long or voluminous. I was originally using the brush with the sort of raised part facing up (like in the picture below) but once I changed to using it with the flatter part facing up, I found the mascara much easier to work with. 
Once I had got the hang of using it, Roller Lash was pretty okay but it was never my first choice when reaching for mascara. It retails at around €26 which is really expensive for mascara so I was expecting it to be a little bit better. To me, it was not much better than an average drugstore mascara and I still find it kind of clumpy even when I use the brush with the flat side facing up.

BEFORE:
AFTER:
Because this mascara is so expensive, I don't think I will repurchase it. If I have any spare money for mascara I think I will just get They're Real again (I've never found a mascara quite as good). Although I don't really like this mascara, I've heard that there have been a lot of mixed reviews about it. It seems to be either a love it or hate it sort of product. So let me know if you loved it or hated it in the comments below. I'd love to hear what you think. Talk to you soon.

Ghost Deep Night Perfume Review

Recently I bought the Ghost Deep Night fragrance gift set for only €15 euro in the Superdrug January sale. The set contained a 30ml bottle or Ghost Deep Night and also a body lotion with the same scent.

I really like the packaging of this fragrance; a deep purple crescent moon shaped bottle. It is a nice addition to any vanity. I definitely prefer this bottle to the original Ghost bottle, although I do like that one too. I've never tried the original Ghost perfume but I think, even though it contains a lot of the same ingredients, that (from the name) this one is supposed to be a deeper version. This is also a pretty affordable perfume, even though I got the gift set on sale for €15, at full price the 30ml is no more than €25.

This perfume has quite a strong scent. I feel like it is an almost masculine scent and that this could be a unisex fragrance. The main accords in this perfume are vanilla, peaches, woody scents, white floral, amber and musk. The more I find out about the notes in the perfumes that I love, the more I realise that there are so many ingredients they have in common. Vanilla, white floral and woody seem to be among my favourites.

Because this is quite a strong scent, you really only need one of two sprays and it seems to last quite a long time. If I spray it before I go to work, I continue being able to smell it through the day and once I get home. Although it is quite a deep smelling perfume, I don't feel that it's overpowering, although it quickly could be if you sprayed it dozens of times all over yourself. 

Overall, I really like this perfume and it is quickly becoming one of my new favourite scents. I love how affordable it is so that when I run out, it will be easy to repurchase. Even though it is quite a strong, almost masculine scent, I really like it and use it almost every day. Have you ever tried any of the Ghost fragrances? If so, let me know what you thought of them in the comments below. Also, if you are interested in buying this perfume, you can buy it here on Amazon. Talk to you soon.
