Benefit Prrrowl Iridescent Mascara Top Coat & Lip Gloss Duo Review and Swatches

Benefit Prrrowl or Prrrowl (I can’t figure out if it’s 3 R’s or 4 R’s because it varies from different pictures that I see!) is a rather interesting concoction of a iridescent mascara top coat and a shimmering pink lip gloss.

I know what you’re thinking…why would you want a top coat and a lip gloss in the same place? I don’t know, but I guess this is one of those fun products Benefit is known for, one of those whimsical beauty products for finishing off a look:


The packaging is cute, I like, but I like anything remotely related to cats!

This is a double ended tube, half for mascara, which is a purple, blue top coat and the other half for a pale pink milky gloss which is full of blue microsparkles (which you can’t see rom the tube).

Do you know how much I love pink glosses with blue microsparkle? <-------------------------------------------------> much.
So that sparkly peacock blue seems to be a running theme in this product.

The tube is quite long – you get a decent amount of both products but it makes it a bit hard to carry round:


Here are the swatches of both sides:


The product itself is nice to use. The lip gloss isn’t too sticky and has a nice, plumping effect. The mascara top coat (something I never use) actually has a nice brush that gets through mascara’d lashes without clumping.

It also didn’t weigh down my curl.

I liked this lip gloss immediately because it looks like the milky pink Japanese glosses. It’s weird, the blue sparkle is invisible:


Sorry for the pornographic close up of my top lip. My bottom lip has been dry lately and it’s not very appetising looking at close ups of dry lips.


I LOVE the blue sparkle, I love blue sparkle in pink, it’s one of those weird obsessions I have!

Mascara top coat – ok hardly a useful product but this one is one of the better ones I have tried! It’s not too OTT either:


The colour is nice, a purple-blue sparkle. I’ve applied 2 coats here to the top of my black mascara. It’s more twinkly in real life, but you get the idea. Sorry my unmade up wrinkly eye for you:



I was ready to give this product a no-no just because it’s not exactly practical, but actually I like it and you know I love my interesting, gimmicky, strange beauty products. That’s what Prrrowl is I guess – fun! Both ends of this product are good, and I just adore the pink-blue gloss.

The mascara top coat is quite nice too, could add something interesting to a simple make up. This costs £19.50 and you can get it from Boots or Benefit or Benefit Counters!

Would you give Prrrowl a go?

    I have this and I LOVE IT!! It’s not exactly work appropriate but I sometimes use it on Casual Fridays just to get away with it. I have also heard some people use the blue mascara part as an eyeliner. I haven’t tried this myself yet but I just might this weekend to see how it fairs. :) And you totally beat me to blogging about this. LOL :p

    Oh that looks so cool! Love how the shimmer of colour is noticable but not ‘Wayhay Look at Me!’
    I can just imagine me getting the ends mixed up though if I was on a night out!!!

    I actually did love it very much. But did the glitter go in to your eyes. It seem a tricky place to put glittery things. Can go right into the eye. Even am not sure is actually glitter

    wauw, that’s actually quite cool, although I prefer a lipgloss in a different colour.

    Also, this might sound very rude to you and I’m sorry, I do check your website often I’m not just a person out for a free gift or anything, even though I don’t comment often, but umm… where can I find the announcements for the advent giveaway winners please?
    I really don’t want to be a pain in the butt or rude or anything though =$
    *blushes red with shame*

    Omg those blue sparkles in the lipgloss! It just looks so unusual and pretty 😀 And that top coat looks good for those nights out. I wish Benefit were more readily available where I come from.

    Wow, the lip gloss is so pretty! Are you wearing anything underneath the gloss? Your lip look fab!

    And the mascara top coat… Does it only come in that shade? I would love it if it was just a black glittery one instead. And what mascara are you wearing underneath? It gives great definition and length.

    I love this idea – the gloss with blue sparkles and a sparkly blue mascara together :) Fantastic! :) Your lashes look fab too, by the way 😀

    I was considering getting this yesterday, but you’ve totally swayed me into it now!! BLUE SPARKLEZZZ!!
