Benefit Bad Gal mascara review

Hey on this sunny Saturday. Time for a lil review. I got a Benefit bad gal mascara with Glamour magazine and Ive been using it for the past week, so here's what i thought of it.
The main thing i noticed with this is that you have to apply lots of coats in order to achieve a noticeable look. The Benefit site states that it is a mascara "With a big, bad brush and a rich, black formula, it's like wearing a set of false eyelashes without the glue". Hmmmm now that is definitely debatable. For day use perhaps it could be deemed as ok, but i definitely wouldn't bother if it you are looking for the false lash look that Benefit claim. Another thing i found was that i had to check my face a few times during the day as it had a tendency to smudge, the panda look is definitely not sexy. I'm glad this was a freebie and i didn't waste my money on it, Lou x


  1. I used to be a big lover of Bad girl but I stopped using it because it does smudge really badly. I also got this free mascara(I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth!) and I noticed that I had to apply loads. I never had to do this with the full sized one so I think it's down to the freebie. I loved the look of the normal sized Bad Girl, but couldn't stand the smudging

  2. i had it a few years ago and only bought one, the smudging obv must be the reason why i didnt repurchase xx

  3. Get bent lash is the same and one of the least favourite mascaras that I've tried. Yet I loved the 'That gal' Primer and would recommend it to anyone, but I bought it in San francsico, so I am not keen on the price tag much :P

  4. I totally agree with you! I am so glad I didn't spend the money on this!!
