Results in Raccoon Eyes

Though many many other people seem to have high reviews for BADgal lash, this product resulted in raccoon eyes for me. Perhaps this is because I have high cheeks? But I applied this to my top lashes only and still had black circles under my eyes within 8hrs. I prefer Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara, which does not leave black marks below my eyes, is easy to apply, and creates thick, long lashes.

SO Surprised by the High Ratings
Purchased

I read LOTS of reviews before purchasing this mascara and have to admit I somewhat discounted the lower ratings thinking...well...everything is not for everybody. Boy do I wish I would have paid more attention to those low ratings! I love how my lashes look when I first put on this mascara, but I HATE...HATE...HATE how I have dark smudges under my eyes within 3 hrs. It looks terrible!

Worst Mascara- will flake & cause raccoon eyes
Purchased

I can't believe this has gotten so many positive reviews. I can only think that people do not expect much from their mascara. It should not smudge, flake, or otherwise fail to work as it is meant to after only a few hours. A good mascara should last an entire work day without needing reapplication or a clean up job. I normally purchase a different brand that is a tad more expensive and I've never had the problems I had with BADgal Lash. Expect more from your mascara; do not buy!

All dried out
Purchased

This mascara was all dried out which made it difficult to apply to my lashes. I would definitely not purchase again. I don't know if it's just the mascaras that BB mails out because the same thing happened with the sample of a different brand I received. Needless to say, I won't be purchasing any mascara from BB again.

Smudges too much

Is it just me? I can't wear this mascara all day without having a black mascara smudge under my bottom lashes. I wish it worked out better...

Not so much
Purchased

I was a disappointed with this product that I purchased full size. Thought I'd get long beautiful lashes. Brush didn't seem to have any product on it when pulled from container. Almost seemed dried out. Called customer service to inquire about product as was told what I was experiencing was normal. Not of fan of this one

No staying power!
Purchased

I really wanted to like this mascara, but it just ends up leaving smudges all around my eyes! I have never had a mascara leave raccoon under eyes by the end of the day or marks on my lids. It does great nice long lashes, but it isn't worth the risk of its potential to move off your lashes without you knowing!

Difficult

The oversized brush made application extremely difficult. I got mascara all over my eyelids and under eye area! My eyelashes can hold a curl very well even without mascara, but this mascara made them uncurl. I didn't notice any added length or volume with this mascara. From the name I was expecting some awesome lashes, not a natural look.

Smudges

This is a great product IF you don't wear contacts or ever need to rub your eyes. Goes on great with the big brush and has a nice shine to it but it smudges quickly. Too bad because Benefit makes so many great products.

Not Impressed
Purchased

I had high hopes for this mascara. I have been wearing it for about 2 weeks now and am frustrated with it. By the time lunch rolls around, it's already fading away by placing black circles under my eyes. The product just doesn't seem to work for me.
