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.
