Benefit has released another mascara to the beauty market. The new “BADgal Bang” mascara last up to 36-hour volumizing without weighing down lashes. It contains aero particles which are one of the lightests materials derived from space technology. It retails for $24.
The mascaras slim brush has a 360° reach, and it is smudge proof and water resistant. It contains ProVitamin B5 to nourish and fuel the strength and thickness of lashes. The mascara comes in a black bottle with a edgy top. Like other high-end mascara, it can be bought online or in stores at Ulta, Sephora and department stores that carry the Benefit products.
Known for its various volumizing and lengthening mascaras, Benefit’s most popular mascarashave been the “Roller Lash” and the “Real Lengthening” products. Our beauty writer, Natalie Fajardo, tried the “Badgal Bang” herself to see how it compares to “Roller Lash”, “Real Lengthening” and other non-Benefit mascaras:
I decided to purchase the mascara to try it out, given that I am a huge mascara aficionado. Up to this point, my favorite mascara has been Too Faced’s “Better than Sex” mascara, which has been the most popular and highest sold mascara in the U.S.
However, while there were things about the "Better than Sex" mascara that I liked-- such as the wand and how it felt-- I didn't like that it didn't last all day. It would depend on my activities for the day, but when I would have long days, including going to the gym and staying up late, the lashes would not be as nice and volumized as they were when I applied the mascara in the morning.
When I first saw the “BAD gal Ban” mascara, I was disappointed with the wand, simply because I am not a big fan of small wands. With the first application of this mascara, my opinion completely changed. I got so much volume with just one application. I truly loved how my lashes ended up being, and they lasted all day. The best part-- other than the fact that my lashes were flawless for around 15-hours-- is that I never experienced any smudge or any kind of fall out.
This mascara is a must try and it might just be the next “Better than Sex”.
