Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Sorry it’s been some time since my last post I’ve just been super busy with just life in general. I’m sure you’ve all heard that benefit has released a new mascara called Bad Gal BANG and everyone is absolutely hyped about it.
So me being me I just had to try this out. I’ve never actually tried a benefit mascara before so I have absolutely nothing to compare it to other than my L’oreal Miss Baby Roll mascara that I’ve had for a while now. Anyway onto my first impressions.
The price isn’t the most affordable but if you want to compare it to other high end mascaras I suppose it could be seen as one of the cheapest. This mascara retails for £21.50 which to me is super expensive for a mascara but if it’s worth the hype I’m definitely willing to spend the money.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, I mean lets be real, it looks amazing. The packaging is kind of a black matte feel with the name of the mascara in pink printed on the side. The lid of the mascara (is that what you call it?) is covered in black rubber studs which make the product look really high end. It feels luxurious and has some weight to the packaging. Definitely looks and feels high end, you’re getting what you paid for.
Now onto the mascara itself. I was hoping this mascara would live up to the hype, especially because of the price. My first impressions were that the mascara wasn’t any different to anything else I had tried before. UNTIL, I coated my eyelashes fully. And boy was I wrong thinking this was any old mascara. My eyelashes are typically thin and lifeless so I am always looking for a mascara that will give me volume and length. This mascara definitely delivered on both of those elements. The mascara is easily build able so you can apply a few coats without your lashes looking clumpy.
(Excuse the blood shot eyes, I’m very tired)
The one thing I love about this mascara is that it brings drama to your eyes, you can wear is with a natural makeup look or you can totally glam it up and create lots of volume for a night out. There is no need to wear fake eyelashes as your lashes will look incredible. Take this from a girl who has short and lifeless eyelashes.
My final thoughts on this mascara are that it’s an absolutely amazing product and definelty does what it claims to do although I’m yet to see if it lasts for 36 hours. However, I do realise this isn’t exactly a budget priced mascara which leaves me thinking it’s not an absolute nessectity and you don’t really need it in your makeup bag. If you do happen to have some money lying around or you want to spoil yourself then I’d definitely buy it, but it’s really not worth breaking the bank for.
For me this mascara gets a 4.5/5, so I would recommend this mascara, 100%.
Until next time,
