Just a few weeks ago, I was sent a sample to try the new Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Bang! mascara. I was super excited because it’s supposed to add volume to your lashes without weighing them down.
BADgal Bang! Volumizing mascara is supposed to be a smudge-proof, flake-free, water-resistant, and includes ProVitamin B5 known to fuel thickness & strength.
Benefit Cosmetics evaluated 102 women and found that:
90% saw dramatic volume**
94% said it instantly lifted lashes**
92% said it lengthened lashes**
The BADgal Bang! mascara comes with a Slimpact! brush which makes it so much easier to separate your lashes. The wand consists of 300 soft half-cone shaped bristles that do not pick up too much product, just the right amount! As soon as you open the tube, you’ll notice how shiny and glossy the formula is. This is a jet black mascara and one coat seems to be enough for a natural/everyday makeup look. The formula feels thinner and doesn’t weigh down my lashes thanks to an innovative ingredient called ‘aero particles’.
A good tip for application: start at the base of your lashes, wiggle your way up for added volume, separate your lashes with the tip of the wand and, voila!
Is It Smudge Proof?
I wore this mascara when I watched a sad movie, cried my eyes out (why do we like doing that to ourselves)? lol and I did not have panda eyes! Keep in mind, I only had the mascara on my top lashes.
I’m usually very picky with my mascaras and I don’t like spending more than I have to so I typically opt for amazing drugstore formulas. However, the BADgal Bang! mascara by Benefit Cosmetics will join my top mascara list! It’s truly volumizing and even lengthens lashes if you know how to work that wand. This mascara will be within my reach for a very long time!
