Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara Review

Testing Benefit’s newest launch

The Benefit mascaras are pretty hit or miss for me – Rollerlash is one of my all time favorite mascaras, but I hate They’re Real, so I decided to try a mini from Birchbox to test out Bad Gal Bang ($24 for the full size). I prefer a mix between length and volume that looks fluttery, not clumpy or spidery.

Here’s a close up of the brush – the bristles are very short and only slightly increase in length at the end of the brush to create a cone shape. It’s also a very wet formula that coats your lashes immediately. I think I would prefer longer bristles to brush through and separate the lashes because the amount of product can create clumps quickly.

I have to be very careful applying this, but I do like the overall effect. It’s best when brushed through with a clean wand, but I can make it work without that step too. You can also build Bad Gal Bang up very quickly to get dramatic, voluminous lashes.

This is one light coat of the mascara – I think it looks defined yet still natural. I wanted to mention that it’s a bit harder to remove, which I find true for all of the Benefit formulas. Personally, I still prefer Rollerlash, but I’m happy to have this for more dramatic nights.

Have you tried the new Benefit Bad Gal Bang? What’s your favorite mascara??
