Benefit Cosmetics BADGal BANG! Volumizing Mascara: Worth It?

February 25, 2018

I have been hearing so much about the new Benefit BADGal BANG! Volumizing Mascara and I knew I had to try it out for myself. The reviews lately seem to be mixed so I wasn't sure what kind of results I would get. This mascara is made to give a huge amount of volume that lasts a full 36 hours without weighing them down. Seems like some big claims and my lashes would need a mascara like this to keep them from going back to stick straight. Read on to find out my thoughts on this and if it is worth it.

The mascara brush has plastic bristles and they narrow out and get smaller at the end. This kind of brush picks up quite a lot of product and I noticed as I was applying it was getting clumpy. The bristles did a pretty good job at separating my lashes and I was getting a decent amount of volume. I always curl my lashes before applying any mascara, and this did help in the beginning when I applied it. After having it on for a few hours, the mascara ended up weighing down my lashes and they looked just okay.

I took this pic right after I applied Benefit BADGal BANG! Mascara (Full size: $24, Mini size: $12) and I used 2 coats on the top lashes. I wish this also lengthened my lashes a bit but they look okay. My go-to mascara of all time is Benefit Roller Lash and I have to say that it still is. I thought BADGal BANG! could take its place, but it didn't happen that way. It was an okay mascara overall, but definitely too much of a wet formula that my lashes don't appreciate. 

Is Benefit Cosmetics BADGal BANG! Volumizing Mascara Worth It? No, not for me. You will have to try it out for yourself to know, but I'm glad I only bought the mini size.
