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 long-wearing 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 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.

I love this mascara. It really wows the lashes. I do the slow, shaky application as I work the wand to the end of the lashes. Lushness. You will need a good eye makeup remover, though.

Obsessed!

I went through this stuff so fast! I cannot get enough. It's got great hold, didn't flake after an eight hour shift, and it looks so natural for my already long lashes. I need more!

Real Long Lashes!
Sampled

I'd been wanting to try this mascara for a long time, so I was thrilled when it showed up in my Birchbox. It really does an amazing job of lengthening my lashes. I did have to wipe the brush off first to prevent clumps, but once I did that, I was more than satisfied, and my eyes look fantastic.

Favorite Mascara

This is hands down my favorite mascara. It makes my lashes look thicker and longer. It also separates my lashes really well.

Love this stuff!
SampledPurchased

This is my second purchase of this mascara and I really LOVE IT! I wear it every day it's awesome. It makes your lashes look so long and it's easy to use. So glad this was a sample in one of my boxes or I don't think I would have ever found this great mascara.

I don't like heavy lashes at all & you can put a ton of this on and your lashes will look fabulous!

I love Benefit!

This is one amazing mascara! I love the formula and the brush. It doesn't flake either. I have contacts and the mascara doesn't bother my eyes at all!

Fine but I don't get the fuss

I know that a lot of people wouldn't be caught without this, and while I think it's a good mascara, it's just not my favorite. It does make the lashes thick, but I prefer a mascara that gives some curl as well.

Just the best Mascara ever!
Purchased

I am hooked! When I use this co-workers and friends have asked if I have been using a lash enhancer or if I have gotten lash extensions!
No clumps or glumps and doesn't leave spots on my eyelids.

Little goes a long way

I'm not a huge eye makeup person. I usually wear mascara only on special occasions. But this one works so well and goes on so easily, I wear it almost every day. No clumps. Smooth application.
