Benefit BADgal Bang Mascara Review

For me personally, mascara is essential in my makeup routine! I just feel that it finishes off a makeup look nicely. I'm also a big fan of trying out, and discovering new mascara's too. When I heard that Benefit Cosmetics were launching a new mascara at the beginning of this year, I was very excited to try it out.

The mascara in question was named 'BADGal Bang!', and is a relaunch of the original Benefit mascara 'BADGal Lash'. For the last three years, I've been incredibly loyal to one of Benefit's other mascaras, 'Roller Lash'. I love everything about 'Roller Lash' -  especially the lift it gives me, so 'BADGal Bang!' had a lot to live up to for me!

It's fair to say that 'BADGal Bang' has received some mixed reviews. Some people absolutely love it, and some people absolutely hate it. I have to admit, from what I read, I was a little put off by what some people were saying, but I wanted to go into trying this mascara with an open mind, as I do with every product that I try. 

Luckily, I received a sample of 'BADGal Bang' in my March Birchbox which I was very excited about, and it gave me a great opportunity to put this to the test before actually parting with any money on the full sized version. 

One of the points that many people raised about 'BADGal Bang' is that the consistency of the mascara is very wet. From my own experience having now used, and tested it out, I too found it to be a very wet consistency. That said, it didn't cause me any problems with applying the mascara. I was very careful when using it for that reason though. I also read that you shouldn't layer this mascara, however I've been layering my lashes with a few coats, and again, no problems.

What I really love about this mascara, is the wand! It's flexible, long, and thin, and really gets into my lashes to coat them with the mascara. I also love that the colour of the mascara is a deep jet black colour, and makes my eyes stand out even more. I do get a pretty good lift with this, and the mascara lasts on my lashes throughout the day so easily! Benefit have said that 'BADGal Bang!' lasts for 36 hours a time, however, I'm quite religious with making sure that I have all my makeup off before I go to sleep so I can't comment on that. But it's good to know that it will last if you need it to!

So, all in all I'm happy with Benefit's newest mascara! I ended up liking it a lot more than I was expecting to, although I'm still madly in love with 'Roller Lash'! But considering the mixed reviews I had heard before I had tried this, I personally had no need to be worried about trying it. What I would say is if you want to try it, go for it! If you don't want to commit to buying a full size, there is a mini version which is a perfect size to introduce yourself to the product. The full size is priced at £21.50, and the mini version is £10.50.

Have you tried 'BADGal Bang!'? What did you think?
