Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara
Review

Hi Divas!

 When I first heard the name of Benefit's newly released mascara I was hooked! 'Bad Gal Bang' sounds completely sexy, rebellious and explosive. Benefit Cosmetics are known for their high-quality mascaras. They have cult favourites that most beauty fanatics love. I was very intrigued that they released a new one with such a bad ass name and extraordinary claims, as 36 hour full blast volume. Who wears a mascara for 36 hours? She must be a bad girl, damn. I bought this mascara at a Sephora in Qatar but it is available at Benefit counters in South Africa. While shopping around in Sephora, one of the assistants tried the mascara on my co-worker and it looked absolutely amazing on her. I definitely wanted to try it out for myself. This mascara has been very hyped up across the beauty community but each person has different needs when it comes to finding their perfect mascara. I will be reviewing this product according to what I like as finding the ideal mascara that works for your eye shape and eyelashes are subjective.


The mascara comes in a black, pink and silver trendy design. It is packaged in a matte black plastic tube that has a chic rubber feel to it. I love the edgy designs on the cap as it gives the product a futuristic feel. The actual wand is longer than most standard mascaras and feels a lot more flexible. The brush is plastic and has a sleek and quite tapered design with 300 bristles on it. You kind of wonder if this brush will actually do anything significant for the lashes. Of cause the secret is in the bristle layout and the mascara formula. This mascara contains Pro Vitamin B5 which nourishes the lashes. It makes them stronger and helps them to grow thicker. One of the biggest ingredients that make this product stand way out from the rest is the Aero Particles derived from space technology. I know, your brain probably froze just a a little bit to take that all in, LOL. Apparently, these aero particles are used in space missions and now they are in your mascara. They are one of the lightest materials that aim to defy gravity thus keeping your lashes lifted and not weighed down for a longer period of time. That point when makeup and physics meet.


Bad Gal Bang promises to give massive volume to the lashes without weighing it down. The brush is designed to reach each and every lash across the eye giving it a vava voom effect. It is smudge proof and water resistant too. This mascara has a thick consistency. I find that I can only apply two full coats before it starts getting seriously clumpy. As mentioned above the wand is flexible therefore it can be tricky in controlling precise application. The actual bristles are amazing and definitely reaches each and every lash. The brush lifts the lashes giving it amazing volume and length. I really love the way this mascara performs on my lashes. Every time I wear it I look like I have false lashes on. It truly gives big dramatic eye lashes. The colour is a true black and looks striking on the eyes. As I mentioned the formula is thick and you have to work slowly when coating your lashes. This is not a quick coat and run out the door mascara. You have to take your time when applying it to make sure your lashes are well coated and precisely brushed through. This will give the best effect out of the product. If you work too fast you can end up with clumpy lashes and smudges on your eye lids.


 I have natural long thick lashes therefore I feel this mascara works great on me. It enhances what I already have and gives a false lash effect. It performs really well throughout the day for me. It does not smudge, droop down or run when I exercise. As I mentioned above you have to work slowly and precisely for this mascara to give amazing results. If you have short or sparse lashes, this mascara might not work as well for you. It may give dramatic length but not volume as the formula is thick and it may make your lashes look spidery. This is a good mascara if you know how to work with it and you have a good set of natural lashes to begin with. I personally really like it and enjoy using it on a daily basis.


I hope you found this review helpful.

Ohhhhhhh It looks great on your lashes Desle! I've seen reviews for it, and it dramatically increases the length of lashes. I think it looks great on some people. Some can't pull it off. You definitely can pull it off girl. Again, looks fantastic.

I had no idea that a mascara could have Pro Vitamin B5,let alone Aero Particles. Looks so pretty! Your photos are amazing as always.
