Benefit BadGal Bang Mascara – Is It Worth The Hype?
Benefit BadGal Bang Mascara is actually supposed to be presented as Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara, which is actually a pretty accurate way to describe this particular mascara.
From the cool, studded rubber packaging to the actual results from the mascara, it’s full of POW! And it’s supposed to last for 36 hours! I don’t dare let anything stay on my lashes for 36 hours, but I did run this mascara through a heavy workout. Did this volumizing mascara perform live up to it’s expectations? All will be revealed soon!
The mascara comes in one color, black. It’s very lightweight due to one of the key ingredients, beeswax. I have to say I do like beeswax in my beauty products – it gives an airy texture unmatched by anything else. Also included are aero-particles that come from space technology. I’m not exactly sure what aero-particles actually are, but I do appreciate the extra attention to making sure eyelashes around the world are high and lifted up. Never a bad thing!
The plastic wand is thin and shaped like a cone. This is very convenient for a couple of reasons – it allows you to place mascara easily at the root of your lashes which helps give your lashes a lush, voluminous look. It also helps reach those inner and outer corner areas with ease – always a plus! I’ve been using heftier mascara applicators so I will confess it took a bit for me to get used to this mascara.
Here’s my lashes after. Rather than giving my eyelashes lots of volume, as advertised, I feel Benefit BadGal Bang Mascara gives my lashes tons of length! And a nice degree of separation! Not a bad thing, at all. And it did pass the heavy workout test – after sweating for 30 minutes my mascara remained intact with zero smudges involved.
My Final Thoughts: Benefit BadGal Bang Mascara lives up to it’s promises! I’m still stuck on L’Oreal Voluminous Feline which has yet to be dethroned as my holiest of holy grail mascaras.
