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.

Great mascara for a night out
Purchased

This is a great mascara for when you need lots of lashes and more volume. It takes longer to apply than the average mascara, or maybe it takes more coats to get to the results you expect for night-out mascara. I also found that it is harder to remove with my usual eye makeup remover than other mascaras I've used. For these two reasons, it has not become my work day go-to, but it is part of my repertoire when I want lashes with more flair.

Favorite mascara!

absolutely amazing mascara. I only use this product ever since I first used it. It is super effective and I receive so many compliments and how long my lashes are. I always am light on all my makeup so mascara is always the main focus of my makeup routine and this is my number one suggestion!

Really nice mascara

This mascara works really well for me. It has a little spiky ball thing on the end which is really good for reaching individual lashes.

This is the best mascara ever. It doesn't flake or smudge, it stays on if you don't wash it off, and it made my eyelashes look enormous. Seriously, my students thought I was wearing falsies. Amazing.

An instant favorite

I love this mascara. It adds the perfect definition to my lashes without being clumpy. Its a step above the natural look without looking too done up. The applicator is great too. Try this!

Very disappointed
Purchased

I was expecting a lot from this mascara, but was very disappointed. After applying, it dried very thick. And it does clump up. I did like the brush for getting the tiny lashes, but it took a lot of time. Also, this was not an easy mascara to remove.
I am going to return for a refund.

Great Mascara!

I love this mascara. This is my all time favorite kind. It lengthens lashes and makes them so beautiful. The special brush allows you to reach every little lash and push them up. I would recommend this product to anyone.

This mascara will give you that heart-thumping goddess look without fuss. People think I have naturally thick lashes now lolll. BEST product.

No better than drugstore
Purchased

This mascara went on the top lashes fairly quickly, but it clumped while applying the second coat. And the bottom lashes clumped with the first attempted coat. I will continue to use my regular mascara.
