BADgal BANG! Mascara Review


benefit badgal bang mascara review

Back in my San Fran days, They're Real mascara was my true jam. Then, when I created this blog, I was having an affair with Roller Lash. Fast-forward to 2018 and here I am - talking about Benefit Cosmetics most exciting mascara launch yet - BADgal BANG! I have been testing this little guy for almost a week now and here is my two cents.

About the Product

Claims: 36-hour wear/ massive volume/ lightweight/ intense pitch black colour/ smudge-proof/ water-resistant/ B5 supports natural lash thickness and strength/ false lash effect

Price: 24 USD (125 AED in the UAE). You get 0.30 oz/ 8.5 g worth of product. Made in France.

Packaging: unlike the other two top-selling Benefit mascaras, BADgal BANG! comes in a rubberized, soft-touch packaging with a faux-studded cap. Now, the best part of this mascara is the brush. The brand describes it as a "slimpact! brush" but to keep it short: it is a slim, cone-shaped plastic wand, which has an incredibly flexible and bendy body. The tip is quite small and the good thing about it is that you can easily access both inner and outer corners of the eye, as well as roots of lashes.

Formula: to me this is quite a wet mascara. Although I don't use it for that long, from my experience with Benefit mascaras in general, they do get better as they dry down a bit; typically on a second or third week of use - you start to really fall in love with them. That being said, if you like a semi-dry formula, just give it some time. Just as promised, this is a very pitch-black mascara.
