Benefit BADgal Lash Volumizing Mascara

This longtime favorite has an oversized wand and superdark formula to give you ultra dramatic lashes. The famously big, bodacious brush coats lashes with the ultra-black formula, creating volume and thickness.

Really Upset
Purchased

I used to LOVE this mascara years ago. It was the only one I used. Then I went to college and was broke so I started using drug store brand (which I love, by the way). I'm 25 now and was feeling like a makeup upgrade so I splurged and bought a bunch of new stuff - including what I thought was my favorite mascara. This is NOT the same. I love the brush - it's still perfect for my lashes. The mascara though... it never used to end up under my eyes. I tried it maybe 7 times and every time I had dark circles under my eyes from the mascara somehow running off. MAYBE the waterproof one would be better ... if you want to try this mascara that would be my advice. I don't like to use waterproof of any brand.. so I'm officially no longer a badgal lover. Really upset that I wasted my money.

used my points and regretting it
Purchased

Used my birchbox points and paid the extra and so excited to get it in the mail! Then I put it on.....HORRIBLE coverage. Very sad I wasted my points on this.

So...

I wanted to love this mascara...it has such great reviews. However, an hour in it flaked and made me look like I had terrible under eye circles! The mascara flaked all day. Terrible.

Not a good Benefit product
Purchased

I have tried the other Benefit mascara and loved it, this one is watery and gets everywhere. It doesn't give that full effect I was looking for either.

No coverage

I may as well just not wear mascara. This was a huge waste of money for me. I have to put at least 5 coats on each eye to make it look like I'm wearing anything on my eyelashes. Not a fan.

Hate the brush!

I thought the large brush would be a positive thing, but I could barely get any product on my lashes! I tried wiggling the brush into the roots but just ended up poking myself in the eye! Disappointed.

big disappointment, little volume
Purchased

I ordered this mascara because BB was out of benefit's "They're Real" mascara (which I love, it's the most amazing mascara I have ever used). I spent $19 on this?! The huge, cumbersome brush applies barely any product. Several coats and I'm thinking, "Wait, I'm wearing mascara?" Even less lengthening effect, and I can't swirl my lashes around the wand because it's so wide. I will go ahead and order the mascara I like now that it's back in stock and through this away. I hate wasting money, but it's not worth the daily frustration and disappointment.

the one point is for coverage
Purchased

Look, Benefit doesn't make bad products. I love this brand. But this mascara doesn't stay put. It smudges. (Upside: it washes off easily).

I'm happy with the thick, full, lengthening without looking gross coverage. I'll finish it up, but I'm not going to buy it again.

for a $20 mascara, I am very disappointed. It needs to be applied more than a few times to even notice I have mascara on. Ill stick to my usual.

Hmmm...

I have heard rave reviews about this mascara but I just cannot love it at all. The brush is so big it makes it impossible for lower lashes without having mascara smeared everywhere. The formula is not so great either. Once applied it just made my lashes look wet, not full or lush. I can't justify anything about this mascara especially for the price. I've seen drugstore brands that surpass this mascara any day.
