How have you all been? I hope you’re all looking forward to the Easter holidays & have something better than working planned unlike me. I can’t believe just how quickly Easter has come around this year. Today I wanted to review the Benefit BADgal Lash mascara which I’ve been testing out for a couple of weeks now. I hear a lot of hype over the BADgal Bang mascara, so I wanted to try out a different Benefit option. I have a lot of ‘clumpy’ (and I say that in a positive way) mascara’s in my collection, which sound similar to the BADgal Bang, so I was hoping this BADgal Lash would give me something a little different.
This mascara will set you back £20. For me, that’s quite expensive for a mascara as I have a lot of drugstore faves. However, I don’t mind splashing the extra money if the product is worth it!
Benefit say this is: ‘sexy, dramatic, pure unadulterated black mascara for full, voluminous lashes.’ And claim that the ‘big brush coats lashes with our thick black formula.’
The mascara wand is definitely a big thick bristle brush.
When I first saw the wand I was pleased as I much prefer bristle brushes to plastic ones. They coat the lashes better in my opinion & make for a more full look providing lots of volume.
I think this mascara does give quite a lot of volume, for me it’s nothing crazy & I do have mascara’s that will give me more, however those others do clump. But this one manages to give volume, without clumping which I’m sure would be ideal for a lot of people.
I like how much length this mascara gives me & was quite surprised by it as it isn’t a mascara massively targeted towards length. This gives me a lovely fluttery effect which I really enjoy.
It lasts nicely & does hold a curl quite well, which is a huge bonus for me as my other faves don’t seem to do this.
I don’t personally like to wear this on my lower lashes as it does give a little smudging under my eyes throughout the day. It’s not terrible at all though & you could definitely get away with using it on those lower lashes.
Overall I really like this mascara & I’m glad I decided to try it. It’s probably one of my favourites in my collection at the minute & I will more than likely be repurchasing!
Have you tried this mascara out? Are you tempted too? Let me know in the comments below.
