For everyday wear, we’re fond of Benefit’s bestselling BADgal Lash Mascara.

Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

Consider this mascara the no-fuss alternative to falsies. It deals lashes a one-two punch, adding both length and volume to keep them looking anything but lackluster. We love how the formula doesn’t run or smudge, even after a whole day of wear, and gives our lashes a natural-looking curl without weighing them down. The jet-black color makes eyes pop, and it’s especially great when you’re trying to achieve a dramatic night out look. You’ll have to convince your friends that you’re not sporting faux lashes.

How it Works

Kiss clumps goodbye—the smooth formula glides on easily, while the unique definition-enhancing brush lifts and separates each and every lash, even the tiny ones at the corners of your eyes. The long-wearing pigment gives your gaze seductive oomph (no lash glue required).

How to Use

Wiggle this thick brush from the base of lashes to the ends for the full volumizing and lengthening effect. Maneuver the brush’s tip to catch those elusive bottom lashes, and don’t hesitate to layer up.

Amazing mascara!

This mascara is amazing! There is a smooth application and no clumping. The wand is awesome, too. On the end of it, there are longer "spikes", per se, so you can coat eyelashes corners without getting mascara all over your face! Love, love, love!

itch eyes
Purchased

Love benefit and normally get bad girl lash however it wasn't available so I tried they're real. The wond broke off the handle the second time I opened it. The mascara made my eyes itch something fierce. This has never happened before. I went back to bad girl lash and will stay with it forever

great for everyday

This mascara is great! Mascara is one thing I can never have enough of! This stuff is great for everyday wear. Little to no clumps and it makes my eyes pop! I love this on minimal makeup days. A good BB cream, some lip gloss & a quick swipe of this mascara & I'm ready to go!

Best mascara ever!

I have no idea how many tubes of this mascara I've purchased because I love it so much! Keeps my short lashes looking much longer and fuller all day. The fact that it's a Benefit product makes it even better!

Best. Mascara. Ever.

This is by far, the best mascara I have ever used. I have naturally long eyelashes, and this literally makes people question if my lashes are real or not. Adds fullness, length, and curl, everything you could possibly want out of a mascara. I have used dozens and dozens of different mascaras and when this was first advertised I wondered "what could really make this that different from all the others?" But i was so wrong, I dont know what it is, but it is amazing! Will never use another mascara again, period.

Best mascara i've ever owned!
Purchased

I don't usually spend a lot of money on makeup, especially mascara. I used to buy the cheapest available in the makeup isle. I received a sample of this in my Birchbox last year and will probably never go back to drugstore mascara again.

It makes my eyelashes look fuller and bigger. My friends always tell me how pretty they look when using this mascara. It's a great product!

Love the wand - but flakes
Purchased

I do love this product, which is why I bought a full-sized bottle. My only suggestion would be work on the formula to make sure it does not flake. After wearing it all day, I tend to see flakes under my eyes. The best part - the wand!

Best mascara out there

Awesome mascara! Goes on smoothly and makes my lashes look super thick and long. Doesn't clump or flake off during the day either.
