Product Info

Brand

I am naturally blond and what we blonds love best is 'n great looking mascara that does not always have to be the part but most def has to look the part with regards to packaging! This "BAD Gal" has great length to her with a big and bold brush that is the big secret to any great mascara! It comes in a bigger than normal container that give you the idea of great value for money.

Falsie effect

Cannot live without this!
I am amazed every time, because it looks like doll lashes. I just wish that it wasn't so expensive. I normally wait for the Benefit to go on sale at Edgars to buy it.

Benefit BAD Gal Bang Mascara

This is the newest version of this mascara. The original formula is pretty standard & really just meh.

This one is a very wet formula that is buildable and does not clump.

The brush is quite interesting, because it flexes as you apply. It has a super fine tip allowing you to get into those inner corners without poking your eye out.

They also recommend that you apply if over any of their other mascaras for maximum effect. It does work, because it separates & builds very easily.

A must try!

Benefit Bad Gal Mascara Plum

So, yet again were here…Autumn. Pack away the neon and tribal print and head straight into Regal Nirvana. Garnet, Plum, Red, Grape, Wine and Gold. The Autumn look is bold, feminine and plush.

These shades of colours suit every skin tone and can be used on cheeks, lips and eyes It gives an incredible contrast to any look. The colours are vibrant and eternal. Many major make-up houses already have their signature colour on their fashion-forward radar. From Stila’s range of eyeshadow pigments to Sisley’s hydrating lipstick, heck even mascara has turned prune as seen with Benefit

This mascara at R110 packs an incredible punch! It brings out the vibrancy of any eye colour, but blue and brown eyes really shine with this complimentary hue. To achieve maximum impact, ensure the mascara is painted as close to the lash line as possible. Once applied, use an eye-liner in the same Garnet family shade to line the upper-lid in a cat-eyed flick.

The mascara itself is the same formula of their other mascara range yet I did find it too be much more ‘tacky’ in consistency. It kept on forming blobs on the brush. The colour is vibrant and looks intense on the brush but I needed a good 3 coats and lots of wiggling to get my purple-flicked lashes.

The brush is very disappointing. I’m all for the new silicone bristled applicators that offer less fuss and more impact. The brush is too bristled and messy to use, if you’re accustomed to the convenience of a silicone applicator. This brush is feathery and very fibrous.
The packaging is rich and opulent following in the seasons two hottest colours- plum and gold. It’s a rectangular box with gold sides whilst the front and back are plum with old writing. The mascara tube is set out similarly to the box, with the tube being plum with gold writing whist the lid is gold. The applicator is black in colour as well as the inner step. Even though the brush is dark, the intensity of the plum really shows through. Because of it looking different in colour, I was a tad hesitant to apply and in doing so messed my eyelids, I was happy to find though that this formula wiped off easily with a make-up remover and left no red or purple stain behind.

It’s a great buy to achieve the newest of looks and add some extra pizazz to a mundane look. The look is demure yet very dramatic, contradiction in every wink. My bf didn’t appreciate this bold new look and made me layer on black over, I decided to leave the ends plum which actually gave for a very unique and wistful look. It makes the roots look dense and dark like you’re wearing a tick black liner and the tips are left looking feathery, flirty and light.

It’s a beautiful colour and addition to us Diva’s make-up collection. As your eyes are the ones on show I suggest you keep your face fresh and as natural as possible, a lovely plum hued lippie wouldn’t go a-miss though. Try Topshop’s Lipstick in Beguiled @R119.

You can Benefit from this Mascara!

I received this mascara from The Beauty Bulletin and was very excited as I LOVE the Benefit range! I have bought quite a few products from them at Woolies ( I think they are the only stockists in SA ) and have always enjoyed the great quality they have.
I received a perfect little sample size, which I found tricky at first to get used to using a short wand - first application is a nighmare! But this is only the sample size - the one that you buy has a great size wand.
This product has a great thick chunky brush that goes on easily and helps create real drama to the eyes. You don't need more than one application unless you want a really sexy ' bad girl' look.

Following off thier website:
Why we love it:Sexy, sultry, pure unadulterated black mascara for full, voluminous lashes. It's as BAD as you want to be!
What else you need to know:Famously big, bodacious brush coats lashes with our super black formula.

Mascara -Benefit Bad Gal Lash

A was very lucky to recieve a sample size of this much desired mascara - when I saw the name on the box I did a silent jig of joy!! Been want to try out these products forever but alas they are pretty pricey for some of us! Tried it this morning for the first time - big brush and small handle - maybe because of sample size so was a bit awkward to apply.Brush separated eye lashes nicely but I can't say my eye lashes looked any different from my normal mascara - the big brush also meant I managed to smudge or dot the side of my nose whilst applying the mascara.The box is a wonderful pink and black and looks very funky !I love the quirky names Benefit comes up with and this kind of thing definately plays a role when it comes to choosing products - if the advertising promises or hints to make me more glam I want it! And the pink and blaack doesnt hurt either!!

Benefit Bad Gal Mascara

I was totally over the moon when I received this fabulous mascara. The only time I've ever tried a Benefit product was at the Benefit counter so I was really excited to try this baby out and put it to the test.

Highs: I love how it seperates and lengthens my lashes. There really is a vast difference afterwards. I'm used to using a big brush mascara so this one is easy peasy to handle. Even though its not a waterproof mascara it doesn't leave panda eyes which is fantastic. It comes off easy with eye makeup remover with no remnants afterwards.

Lows: The tip of the brush is left with some excess so it can be irritating and could lead to smudges but apart from that I love that Bad Gal!

Great mascara for luscious lashes!

I got a small size of this mascara from the BB team. I am very greatful. It is my first Benefit product ever and I am very impressed so far! I am not a mascara crazy girl. I have a few of them but often skip them in my morning makeup routine as I naturally have long black lashes. But I could still tell the quality when I saw it!
I really enjoy using it . The brush is simply luxe. It is huge and creates great length and volume. The formula of the mascara is perfect creamy enough but not too watery. It doesn't clump or make the lashes stick together to make my lashes look like I only have 5 of them LOL! I definitely recommend it!

The only complaint I had is the short handle of the trial size. It makes it very awkward to apply as the brush is already big. If you consider purchasing a small size one (not sure if they sell them at all), then just look out for that!

All Im gonna say is...WOW

As my heading of this reveiw states, all that could come out of my mouth after trying this product was WOW.

You know that feeling when you think all this time you've had the perfect mascara and noi other product will come close to that...then you come across a new little wonder, which surpasses every mascara you've ever owned?Then to top it off, you only have ONE sample of it and only want to use it if you really need to and for special occasions because you don't ever want it to empty?

That is how I feel right now!lol

I received a sample of this mascara from the girls at BB!Thanx girls!I have found my DREAM mascara!
It has a HUGE applicator brush which makes application rally easy and the mascara really effective! The mascara formulation is very very light, so you get all the effects of false lash look and none of the weight. My lashes looked SO long and So voluminous and SO dark and SO thick and SO everything I want it to be. My eyes are my best feature, definitely the "nipples" of my face if it was from a mans perspective lol, so a good mascara is essential for me.

I really loved trying out this product, Thank you SO much Lori and Kerri for including it in my BB bag! My eyes have been "opened" by this mascara. Definitely the best I've tried.

Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara

This mascara is truly amazing, it curls and lengthens your lashes beautifully. The brush is bigger than normal mascara brushes, with large, dense bristles. Application is easy and there is no smudging. Lashes are perfectly separated and the best part: No clumping, no flaking, no spider-legs!

With Bad Gal Lash Mascara, it looks like you were born with naturally long eyelashes; it doesn't have a thick, artificial coating. It's a great daytime mascara, as it doesn't feel heavy and it's not so dark and inky. It's also not difficult to remove.

Love the effect it has on my lashes. I will definitely purchase this mascara again.

Love this "BAD Gal"

WOW! Once you go "BAD gal" mascara BLACK you never go BACK! I really love this mascara! It is by far the best I have ever had. What a great big brush and it goes on fabulous without any hassle and really pumps up the lashes! When it comes to price it is a little bit more expensive than your average Joe but hey "BAD gal" is not your average Joe! This is what I would like to call the Porch of all the Mascaras!
