This is Benefit’s biggest launch for the last couple of years and we have all been guessing what the #outofthisworld product was going to be. Well the answer is a mascara that’s all about gravity defying volume! I have Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara here and literally could not wait to get it on my lashes. It claims ‘space technology volume’ using the lightest material known to man! Plus 36 hour wear! Here are my before and after photos.
First off, the packaging is pretty cool. I love the velvety matte finish and stud-effect cap.
Also it’s a skinny brush which I always find much easier to use than big fat brushes.
Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara Features
The main principle behind this mascara is that the lighter the material, the more volume you can achieve.
- Uses aero-particles – the lightest material known to man
- Weightless finish which means the volume holds
- Soft wax gives flexibility and a comfortable feel
- Hard wax adds structure to the formula
- Jet black pigment
- Polymers protect the mascara from water, humidity and sweat
- Pro-Vitamin B5 conditions the lashes
- Cone-shaped plastic wand
- Each bristle is cut in half to create more flats sides and more curved sides
- Flat sides push the formula evenly through the lashes
- Unique wiper ensures the wand holds the optimum amount of mascara
- 36 hour wear
Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara Before & After
Of course I got it straight on the lashes and wanted to share these before and after photos with you.
Now I had Nouveau lashes LVL earlier in the week so my lashes are already pretty curly. They are quite fine though so they definitely needed a volume boost! Bad Gal Bang certainly supplied that. This is a very quick coat and you can see it’s super lengthening as well as volumising. I actually think it makes me look like I have eye liner on too. It feels light and comfortable. I am trying to imagine how good it’s going to look when I actually spend a bit of time on it!
The brush is easy to use and it covers the lashes super fast. Also I love how black it is! It’s a win for me! Although I am a bit sad that it wasn’t a skin launch – I was thinking a highlighter or some kind of space age foundation! Next time!
