Advantages: Thickens lashes without appearing clumpy,
Disadvantages: Brush gets clumpy quickly and mascara dries up quickly
The Benefit Get Bent Mascara comes in a 6.5g cylinder tube. This is a silver metallic colour with Benefit Get Bent Mascara written in curvy black font. The top of the tube screws off to reveal a slightly odd looking mascara wand. The brush at the end of the mascara wand is standard sized with lots of bristle on the brush however this is angled upwards at a 45 degree angle.
The thought behind this design is to give lashes extra lift and volume.
A 6.5g tube of Benefit Get Bent Mascara costs £14.50 from Boots. This is a more expensive product and quite pricey for mascara. It is however a very effective product and worth spending more on as it certainly creates longer thicker looking lashes. I do find however that this mascara does work out to be quite an expensive purchase if used regularly as the mascara dries up quickly therefore means that you need to purchase a tube every two months as the mascara brush and around the lid ends up with lots of clumpy dried mascara stuck to it.
***Application & Look***
Benefit Get Bent Mascara is described to be " a whole new era of mascara. The scientifically angled brush literally lifts, lengthens and curls.... It's a push up bra for your lashes."
The mascara is very easy to apply to eyes. The mascara is a glossy black colour which is brushed through lashes very easily. I would definitely agree that the brush lifts lashes as the angle of the brush coats the underneath of the lash right up to the tip of the lash. This helps lashes curve upwards yet adds length to your lashes. I have quite long lashes naturally however I felt this Benefit mascara added length, but did not make my lashes look spindly. The glossy black mascara also thickens your eyelashes but does not create a stuck together clumpy look. Each lash is coated individually and if you do like quite a dramatic thick look with mascara but applying a few coats you can create quite thick black lashes without all of your lashes being stuck together.
I did find however that after 2 months the mascara had dried up considerably meaning that around the lid and on the brush there were clumps of mascara. This meant that when I tried to apply the mascara I ended up with clumps in my lashes, therefore it was essential to replace the mascara.
The product stays on eyes and does not smudge but is easily removed with make up wipes and make up remover. You do not need to scrub eyes like you do with some mascara to remove it. It is also suitable for contact lens wearers and does not irritate eyes.
This is a very good mascara for creating both added length and added thickness. The mascara is a glossy black colour which coats lashes without making them look heavy a clumpy. The brush makes lashes look uplifted and creates a wide eyed fluttery, separated look for lashes.
The downside to the product is that the mascara dries up quite quickly so you find clumps on the brush after around 2 months, meaning that if you continue to use you end up with clumps of mascara on your lashes.... Which is not a good look!
The price of the mascara is quite steep for some and I know many people will find that £14.50 for mascara is expensive but the results are superior to other mascaras that I have used.
If you want to treat yourself then "Get Bent!".
Summary: A great mascara for thickening and lengthening lashes
