Benefit BADgal BANG! Review – Before & After
A volumising mascara that lasts 36 hours, doesn’t smudge and you can layer? Music to my ears!! I’ve tried a lot of mascaras over the years but only a handful made it to my beauty bag. So boy was I thrilled to be trying new Benefit BADgal BANG! mascara… In addition to the volume claims, Benefit told me the mascara is water-resistant (meaning no smudging or flaking) and since panda eyes are my bete-noire, that went down as a major tick. It also contains ProVitamin B5 known to fuel thickness and strength – are there any downsides to this product?! – and has a streamlined brush with a 360 degree reach, which covers root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, upper and lower lashes. Best of all (I LOVE this fact!) it contains something called Aero-particles – they’re one of the lightest known materials and derived from actual space technology (seriously, they’re used in astronaut spacesuits!!)
So on to the testing. The packaging has that wonderful matt-rubber feel, with a chunky lid that clicks tight shut. I could tell immediately I opened it this was going to be good – the product comes out on the wand with absolutely no clumping. There’s no wiping off excess on the lid or plunging the wand up and down, there’s enough on the wand and that’s it. Brilliant. I slicked it onto my lashes and YES it was instant volume as you can see from my before and after pics.
The wand does exactly what it promises, it’s super-easy to reach all lashes, upper and lower. Now I LOVE LOVE to layer my mascara and the number one complaint I have is that many brands can’t do this. They clump and flake and you have to give up. Not so BADgal BANG! – give it 30 seconds or so and then apply a second coat and it goes on perfectly. Give it another 30 seconds and you’re good to go again. I’ve left it at two coats, but I’m willing to bet you could keep going with this product.
My Verdict: 9/10, it’s staying in my bag for good (I knocked off one star because surely nothing’s perfect…)
Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what others thought on trying new BADgal BANG!
- 90% saw dramatic volume
- 94% said it instantly lifted lashes
- 92% said it lengthened lashes
