on bad gal lash mascara

I've wanted Benefit's Bad Gal Lash for a while. While as a brand I find Benefit horrendously over-rated and overpriced....and 15.50 for mascara for me is a bit excessive,I found myself pleasantly surprised by Bad Gal. Not blown away....but the mascara was far better than I expected. The formula is pleasant enough. It doesn't clump and it's fairly easy to build up and doesn't create a crunchy lash, although sometimes I've found mascara under my eyes when I'm wearing it throughout the day which isn't ideal. The wand is apparently the biggest wand in the industry...which suits me just fine. I love me a good brush...and I don't know if it's the formula or the brush but it holds a curl well and creates a dramatic look after just one coat. The only hindrance is that it can be difficult to get every tiny bit of lashes with such a big brush. For the most part Bad Gal Lash feels a bit too much like style over substance. The mascara is good enough, and I do enjoy the fact it comes in plum and blue but not worth the heafty price tag. I feel there are better mascaras that do the job equally well, if not better than Bad Gal (try Maybelline's Colossal Lash, it's one of the better ones I've used.)
I'd say if you have the money it's worth a shot but I feel that my search for the perfect mascara will never end.

  4. Have to say I love badgal mascara! Once you get used to using the big brush it's brlliant, have to say for about half the price, Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara is my favourite alternative, unless I have enough Boots advantage points to treat myself to a benefit/urban decay splurge! xx

  7. I have real trouble buying pricey makeup because I'm a cheapskate, and I've never really seen the appeal of Benefit - but I might take your recommendation on the other mascara!

  8. benefit make-up is definitely pricey in my opinion - because it's not all sleek like chanel and mac you don't think it will be, but i paid £19.50 for the doctor feelgood primer! but it is good :)

  10. Yeah I find Benefit overrated and overpriced too. It's all style and little substance. Glad you had some luck with the mascara. I never really know what's good and what isn't so I guess I haven't found *the one* yet either!
    Your comment made me giggle, about being secretly 40. Ditto! I get particularly excited by home decoration at the mo (candles and throws etc). Would rather mooch round Ikea than go out and get pissed. God help me!
