Comes off with a regular cleanser but stays put all day.
I do really love BeneFit cosmetics as a whole, but didnt fall in love with bad gal lashes... It did what it said it would do, gave me pretty good volume and dramatic lashes. The only problem was that for half the price, I could go buy my L'orel Voluminous and have just as much volume, if not more for the same price. BeneFit has some really good products, some really cute products... But being 100% honest, having cute products, with a fun little slogan for a name, in a stylish little package can onlu go so far, and lately ive felt like you pay heavily just for the look of their products... with that being said, there are some that cannot be duplicated and I will pay an arm and a leg for. Its just for those who are new to the BeneFit line, dont allow yourself to impulse buy all these new products because of how cute and fancy they are... because you will buy almost everything and you WILL go broke. I give Benefit an A+ for the person in charge of their design and marketing... they know that us women are suckers for products that are fun and playful... and I feel like they play off of that. Consider yousef warned :-)and
One of my all time faves. Lengthens, volumizes, and holds a curl. I wouldn't call it waterproof so much as water resistent, but I'm not going swimming in it, so I don't care much.
This mascara is great for those with dry skin. But, if you have oily to combination, it will definitely smudge your eyes within a couple of hours of wear. Since I have combination skin, my eyes looked like a raccoon's eyes by lunch. If this product didn't smudge, I would buy again because it made my lashes look great.
I wouldn't repurchase. Smudges so fast. There must be something this mascara is missing, like more bees wax for better shape and hold? My eyelashes are stick straight, but maintain its curl until I put this mascara on...
Super dry, did nothing for my eyelashes, horrible!
My favorite mascara. It doesn't clump my lashes together and looks super natural. Love it
LOOOOVE THIS MASCARA!!! its really easy to put on so its perfect for rushed mornings!!! it is a very dry mascara, so if you want more then a natural look, i would go with something else. I happen to absolutely love how natural it makes my lashes look!!!! it is a little pricy though...
This mascara passed the waterproof test without a hitch (I take a shower minus washing my face and see how it fares). And I've worn it camping and swimming at the beach- with barely a smudge. However I'm not super impressed with its length-adding ability (I mean this ain't cheap stuff, so I had high expectations). Dior does a better job at that.. however, Dior Waterproof mascaras aren't waterproof at all! I have settled on this mascara as my standard mascara. I may move back to Covergirl Professional Waterproof eventually since it gives somewhat similar results for just $4. However, BADgal is more gentle and easier to remove.
I had the same issue others mentioned with the design of the tube.. product tends to collect on the narrow rim and gets wasted because there's no putting it back.
Not sure how this stacks up to regular BadGal, but i only wear waterproof. One thing is for sure, it doesn't smudge or come off! Yay! Sure, it can get a little clumpy, but if your quick in reapplying, i think this is a great tube of mascara. As always, Benefit deliver quality, but the packaging this time wasn't thought out so well. If you slide the brush back in, lots of fresh and useful mascara tends to come out on the rim of tube! Precious liquid being wasted! I hope they resign this. One annoyance is that the handle is so long. I feel like my hand hurts if i take too long to be precise with those tiny inner lashes.
I don't believe they have samplers of this waterproof formula, like they do with the regular, so they only way is instore or buying it from benefit or online via ebay (watch out for fakes) or the benefit website.
Overall, i know that this hasnt had too many goes, but i was impressed after i bought it myself and i encourages others to at least give it a go before overlooking it :)
