Advantages: Looks OK on
Disadvantages: Bit too wet for me on application
This is a review of Bad Gal Lash by Benefit. I am on my second tube now but I have to say up front that the second tube came in a mini kit, which I bought really for the other two products rather than for the bad gal lash. I know a lot of people rave about Benefit and think it's marvellous but I personally can find the products a bit hit and miss. I love the packaging but feel it is all terribly overpriced.
The set is called 'Tan about town' and includes a 4g Bad Gal lash and I don't mind this mascara but it's not the best one I ever used. I guess what I am saying is that I don't mind using it but there are other ones out there that work better for me.
What is it?
Bad Gal Lash is a mascara that offers a dramatic effect on your eyelashes. The main colour is black but they have released a version in Plum which is proving quite popular. It goes on thick and the brush is a big one full of bristles so you get a lot of product on them when you go to apply it. Especially with a new tube. I tend to prefer it after a couple of weeks' use as it has dried up a bit by then and doesn't mark my upper eye when I blink and it's still a bit wet.
Bad Gal lash is a really concentrated colour so you get a really black set of lashes after applying. I do find that the tube dries up well before other mascaras I have used but I'm not sure why that is. If you apply too much you will regret it as it really clumps lashes together but I suppose you can say that of many mascaras. I try to never sleep in make up and this is easy to remove with a cream cleanser but you always wake up with a bit of a smudge under the eye after wearing bad gal lash.
The Bad Gal Lash Tube is black on the body and silver lid. The lid also has the brush built in as is traditional with mascaras. I love my mini version as it's perfect to take on the go especially if you have a small handbag.
Full size is 8.5g and Boots sell it for £16.50. However, as I mentioned above, my current version is a mini 4g version and it came in a small travel or trial set that cost £9 so I make that £3 per product. For that price I am happy to own another bad gal lash!
This mascara doesn't make me rave and it doesn't blow me away but for a one coat layer it works perfectly fine. I don't try and add more than one coat as it makes my lashes look awful but I do feel this can be an everyday mascara if you just take it steady and don't over do it. As the tube dries up faster than other ones I've used I would be reluctant to purchase a full sized tube but I don't mind buying one if it comes in a set with other products that I want.
The Tan about town set is a cheap way to get hold of some mini Benefit products without breaking the bank!
Summary: Just an average mascara
