I am so glad I bought this before I read the reviews because I would have ended up missing out on the best mascara I've ever had!
I read the reviews before I tried it but after I'd bought it (if you get what I mean...) and was a little concerned that I'd made a mistake. However when I finally got round to trying it...WOW!
I love this. It is the best mascara ever. I love how it builds up, it keeps my eyelashes curled all day, doesn't really flake off, the brush doesn't hit my eyelids like ALL other wands in the world seem to do...my list of praise is actually endless.
I gave the price a 4 because although it is expensive (£14.50 here) it is also huge and worth it.
Love love love. Will be my mascara of choice forever more.
I really liked this mascara. It's dark, it builds nicely, I love the size of the brush...
There are two only two things that have kept me looking for another mascara that Bad Gal couldn't seem to provide:
1)Soft lashes. Benefit has the right idea, but it makes my lashes brittle.
2)I always end up with raccoon eyes at the end of the day when I wear this. I thought it was just me, but I noticed a friend who was also experimenting with Bad Gal had the same dark shadows after work that I did. Not cool.
I was'ent particually thrilled with this mascara, i thought with the wand being so big it would add masses of voloume and length but it did'ent.
I dont think the performance of this product makes up for the price.
I dont really like to buy cheap make up as i tend to find you get what you pay for but in these circumstances il stick to my Maybelline volume boost as it does a much better job.
I am so disapointed on this one, its just too heavy for my mascara. everytime i curled my eyelash, then apply this one, 1 min later, my eyelashes are not curled any more.
I bought this because of all the hype. Our local Shopper's carries it and even had the sample size. I don't like the brush - too big and clumpy, but it does go on nicely. My lashes look very natural, but longer, and they stand out more. Definitely not volumizing. Because others have had trouble with it drying out, i will repurchase but only the smaller size.
I wanted to try this and was happy to see that my local Sephora stocked a miniature version of this to try for half the price.
Volume: 4/5 but if you apply too much it clumps a lot.
Lengthening: 3/5 not much on lengthening
Definition: 4/5 it makes my lashes stand out.
Clumps: Because of how big the wand is, and how quickly the product dries out (no I don't pump the wand or leave it open for long periods of time) I feel like clumps quicker than it should.
My lashes feel brittle, and honestly I think that this product is mostly hype. I think a lot of people bought it just because its called BadGal ;) haha. I actually know two girls who did. It is advertised to a younger crowd and they really fell for it.
I would most likely buy this again. I wish it came in waterproof.
Love love love the packaging and the size of the brush. Also a fan of the almost false eyelash look it gives. I just WISH it didn't smudge as much as it did. It gives a beautiful look but its staying power is its only downfall (which makes me really sad because I love this mascara). Use it for a night out i.e. only a few hours of wear.
This is a pretty great mascara, at least for me it is. Maybe I just haven't tried enough mascaras to say, but for a girl with pretty short, straight lashes, this works well. I curl my lashes beforehand and then apply, and unlike some mascaras, this retains most of the curl (some mascaras uncurl my hard work with their liquid).
The packaging looks pretty tacky in my opinion and the price is pretty steep, which is why I won't be buying it again, but if I got it as a gift (which is how I came about it), I certainly wouldn't be unhappy.
It's not horrible but I won't be purchasing it again.
