Benefit BADgal Lash 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.

Ill conceived

I'm not totally sure why they think a bigger brush and a bigger tube will result in bigger lashes. The mascara is fine, no better or worse than some of my favorites. My qualm with it is the fact that no one, I mean NO ONE, can get through that tube in the suggested vanity shelf life of 3-6 months. Bacterial infestations aside, the mascara dries out well before you're done. I honestly think the oversized brush actually speeds the drying process along. I'd ditch it for Benefit's "They're Real" or another favorite.

It's great but...

Don't get me wrong, I really love this mascara. It goes on thick and give my lashes that perfect feathery soft look. The brush is easy to use and does exactly what I want it to every time... sadly, every time I use this product, I end up with a funny little black smudge under my eyes after only about an hour. I don't know why it does this, but it takes this mascara from perfect to a dud. Maybe the waterproof formula would work better for me?

Not my favorite mascara...

I had high hopes for this mascara because I'm always in search of big bold lashes, but this formula seemed kind of dry. The brush was big and that's why I bought it but it didn't seem to spread the product very well on my lashes. The bristles seemed kind of hard and didn't go in between my lashes well. Will try another brand.

meh

For the price, I am completely unimpressed. I got this as a sample with a different mascara, and it surely didnt convince me to switch!

Honestly Disappointed

Maybe because I love all the Benefit products I've tried so far (my fave being they're real mascara) but I just didn't think this mascara came close to comparing, maybe the free sample I got was old? Not sure but I wouldn't buy this.

Does not live up to its hype. Mediocore mascara...does what any normal mascara would do but nothing amazing. On a bright side it doesnt flake.

Not a bad mascara

I received the sample of this mascara in my box and was very excited to try it. I normally use Dior mascara so when I used this I was a bit disappointed as it does not come close to the same volume that the Dior mascara provides. After using it twice it seemed to explode and I couldn't even use it. I don't know what happened!

Great volume, but...

... i got flake-age. Great black mascara, delivered volume for sure, but after 4h, i had raccoon eyes (indoors) for some reason. Would keep it for a rainy day, but not my favorite.

Not worth the price

I tried this mascara after They're Real wouldn't keep my lashes curled. This keeps the curl but doesn't do much else that a cheap drugstore mascara can't do. Its not terrible just not worth the price. I found that it did get too think if you put multiple coats and really the only positive was it kept a curl. Back to the drawing board for me!

Decent mascara

I am a fan of most of the Benefit mascaras, but this was not my favorite. The brush left my lashes clumpy when I usually do not have that problem. Overall, it was just fine.
