Mascara has always been my weakness, I am always on the lookout for the new most incredible mascara I have spent countless amounts of money trying and buying new mascaras. I am not a fan of false eyelashes and I’m not that keen on getting eyelash extensions, even though they look incredible on everyone else I just don’t feel brave enough to have them myself. So the more a mascara can lift my eyelashes the better, I’ve tried everything from drugstore mascaras to high-end mascaras and although I have found some good ones along the way I haven’t had anything quite like the Bad Gal Bang mascara from Benefit.
A few weeks ago my Cousin who works at John Lewis was telling me about it before it was even launched and how she had already pre-ordered it and how excited she was to give it a try, and although I had tried Benefit mascaras in the past and they were great I was quite happy with my recent purchase of the Perversion mascara from Urban Decay so didn’t really give it much thought to be quite honest.
And then it launched..
“There is still enough on there to realise that this mascara talks the talk and walks the walk”
I kept seeing amazing pictures of girls wearing Bad Gal Bang and their lashes looked incredible full and voluminous and that’s what I like about social media and the blogosphere its not like the adverts you see on TV where your a bit skeptical to if the eyelashes of the beautiful woman have been enhanced, seeing it on people who have just taken a photo in their bedroom just seems to be a bit more believable for me. So after work one Friday I was wondering around Debenhams and I gave in I thought its got to be worth a try so let’s see if it really lives up to the hype. Not only that but when I found out the mascara was not only waterproof and smudge resistant but it was also full of pro-vitamin B5 which helps strengthen lashes I was sold.
So I first used it on Sunday I wanted to save it until my day off work to give it the first try, and I was pleasantly surprised but I wasn’t blown away, the application was nice and I liked the brush applicator but my lashes didn’t seem to look the way everyone else’s did, but I sometimes find with new mascaras they sort of have to be broken in, and its normally around the Third or Fourth go that you really start to see what you’re working with. So by the following weekend, I was in love I found myself concentrating on my mascara application more because I really wanted to get the full voluminous look to my lashes and it’s not like you need to spend loads of time on them because it basically does all the work for you, I was actually looking forward to getting to my eyes on my daily make up routine because it really compleated my look and made me feel incredible, whats even better about this mascara is that it really is long lasting even to the point where getting it off in the evenings can be a bit more of an aggresive rub but i think thats great because normally at my 9 hour days at work my mascara has flaked away during the day but this doesnt go anywhere, your lashes might not look as full as they did 9 hours ago but there is still a decent amount on there enough to realise that this mascara is talking the talk and walking the walk.
I have used it every day since and I don’t think I will be turning back anytime soon, not only is the mascara doing what it says on the tin but even the packaging is gorgeous, Benefit never fail on their packaging, and I’m loving the catchy name of this mascara, Bad Gal Bang is just such a unique title that really stands out amongst the others and so will your lashes.
So Benefit you nailed it! beautiful unique packaging, easy and simply applicator and most importantly you have given my lashes the lift they needed without me having to put myself through the scary eyelash extension process, it was worth every single penny and I will definitely be purchasing again.
Have you used Bad Gal Bang yet? if so what did you think of it? Or is there a different mascara that you swear by? Let me know in the comments down below I would love to know.
Until next time lovely’s.
