Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara Review

“Badgal Bang Mascara” is the latest launch by Benefit Cosmetics. This mascara has become very popular since its launch. Since I am not a “false lashes” type of a girl, I keep a watch on new mascaras. I love Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara in the past, let’s see if this Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara can replace the Marc Jacobs mascara.

Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara details on the tube

Product Description:
A 36-hour, full-blast, volumizing mascara that layers easily to build massive volume without weighing down lashes.

What it does:
Get out of this world lashes. This gravity-defying formula builds volume the more you layer, and contains aero-particles, which are one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. This innovative, intense, pitch black mascara layers easily for bigger impact. Its custom big slimpact! brush is designed to reach from root-to-tip and corner-to-corner of both your upper and lower lashes for big volume with 360-degree reach. This smudge-proof, water-resistant, volumizing mascara is also formulated with provitamin B5 to support natural lash thickness and strength.

My Experience with Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara:

The Badgal Mascara comes housed in a rubberized plastic packing and the cap has a studded type of a structure on top, it looks different. The name of the brand and product is printed on the tube itself.

Looking at the wand, at first I was reminded of L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara, but the bristles on this are a lot shorter and softer. At times, the applicator wand on the L’Oreal mascara used to poke me in the eye, but I have not faced that issue with this Benefit mascara.

The thing that I love the most about this mascara is the colour, I know I might sound crazy but this is the blackest mascara I have ever used! I love how dark this mascara is! This gives insane length and lift to the eyelashes. This makes your eyelashes slightly thick and adds length to your lashes.

The formula is dry yet creamy at the same time and you don’t have to wait for a long time to add the second coat which generally you have to do with wet formula. The wand really makes it easier to get to the smaller lashes and is also easy to get to the base of the lashes. It holds each lash and coats them all evenly.

This mascara doesn’t cause any irritation or redness of eyes. It also doesn’t clump or smudge throughout the day. It is definitely not waterproof which might bother some people. I like using Marc Jacobs mascara first and then go the second time with this Benefit mascara to add length to my lashes.

Pros of Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara:

  • Adds length.
  • Covers every lash without being clumpy.
  • Buildable.
  • Fit for sensitive eyes.
  • Separates lashes.
  • Intense black colour.
  • Smudge-proof mascara.
  • Doesn’t look clumpy.

Cons of Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara:

  • Not waterproof.
  • Doesn’t add much of a volume.
  • Expensive.

Would I Recommend Benefit BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara?
Not really, I would still recommend Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara.
