Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Advantages: Great over the top long lash look
Disadvantages: Quite pricey
I am fairly new to Beneft products but fell in love with the Moon Beam 'bronzer' so when it came to looking for a mascara I thought I would give it a go. I have a really good 'day-time' mascara but was looking for a more dramatic effect for night time.
Benefit usually have a classic, vintage 50s look to its packaging but for some reason this mascara does not follow suit. It comes in a black and hot pink box with the tube in similar style.
The tube itself is a standard cylinder with a silver-look handle.
My night time make up is usually liquid eye-liner and false lashes (a la toned down Winehouse) but this mascara eliminates the need for the falsies. It lengthens and gives a clump free effect. The brush is quite large so covers smoothly and evenly. The colour of the mascara is a rich black colour.
There aren't many problems with this product. It isn't waterproof so I would not recommend it for swimming or a sad film. If like me you are prone to rubbing your eyes it can come off quite easily, leaving a big black smudge across your face.
I paid £14.50 for a 8.5g tube. You can get this cheaper on ebay but I wouldn't suggest you buy anything off ebay going near your eyes.
Benefit is quite easy to get your hands on - most large department stores and Boots will have a counter and you always get a free sample when you buy something.
For what I want this for I can't fault it. A dramatic wide-eyed 50s look is achieved using this mascara. If you have thinner lashes you are able to layer it on as it doesn't clump.
I am a bit of a Benefit convert and would recommend any of their products. They may be more expensive than you would usually pay but they last ages and are really effective.
Summary: Feel the benefit of good make up
