I was expecting miracles because of all the publicity, but it wasn't that much better than a good DS brand. I did get one compliment during my 4 month use of this, but didn't give me $19 results.
It also flakes, smudges and is hard to remove. BUT it does build up lashes really well (after a dozen coats and 45 seconds of your precious morning)
It doesn't add much volume or length, and it smudges. It was supposed to give you big, glamorous lashes, but it's very wimpy and is hardly noticeable. For this price ($19) I expect MUCH better. It also smudges and flakes off easily.
i bought this mascara a while ago, with a giftcard from sephora. i probably wouldnt have regulary bought this $28 mascara; the price is a little steep. i like it. i have medium-long eyelashes, and want more definition and volume. i usually prep it with some vaseline, and then apply this mascara; and the effects are pleasing. it adds some volume and length, but its not enough in my book. the packaging is soo cute, and i actually bought it because of the pink =) i most probably will not be repurchasing; there has to be something better out there, which is not so badly priced
this mascara is so freakin ahhmazing. i liked it even better than diorshow. the brushes look almost exactly alike but i guess badgals formula is just better. it makes my eyelashes look so gorg. i LOVE IT!
I usually love Benefit but Bad Gal is a terrible mascara, it smears and does not last longer than a couple of hours. Also the brush is unwieldy and hardly distributed any mascara to my lashes. Will not buy again.
OK... let me tell you that this mascara is awesome... The only thing is that it is too pricey in my opinion.
First off, this product has a huge brush which makes it really easy to work it and covers a lot of area at once. The formula doesnt dry too fast like diorshow so it gives you more time to work with your lashes without getting spider lashes.
If you have long lashes like me you can get away with drugstore brands but bad gal gives my lashes the fake look.. IN A GOOD WAY.. it looks like im wearing fake eyelashes and everyone comments on my lashes.
"OMG those are your lashes.. you are so lucky..."
So if you have money to spend get this mascara.. if not, I would suggest maybelline Volum' Express mascara..
I LOVE BOTH.. but I love BAD GAL MORE!! ;)
My best friend has sworn by this product for years but I've always been hesitant to try it due to all the bad reviews. Then a few weeks ago I got a bargain on a best of Benefit set which contained Dallas, Bad Gal and Eye Bright for £23! I've been wanting to try Dallas for a long time,and already use Eye Bright so I was very happy that day! Anyway, so far I'm impressed with Bad Gal. It's very black, seperates and lengthens my lashes and keeps the curl through the day. A lot of people say that this smudges easily but I haven't really found this to be a problem at all. I'm not 100% convinced that this is my HG mascara but for the moment I'm happy. I'm also a sucker for Benefit packaging and really like the big tube. The fat brush takes a while to get used to but once you get the hang of it, it's easy to apply.
I don't like this mascara at all. The only reason I rated it a 2 instead of a 1 is b/c I did not notice that it straightened out my lashes after curling, which deserves a point in my book.
However, it might be because I couldn't get any product out of the darned tube. I swear I would have to put on about 10 layers of this stuff to equal one layer of my Tarte mascara.
The wand is HUGE (bigger than lash last) and I find that to be overbearing. I really don't believe that the fatter the wand the more volume you will have. I believe it is based on your curling technique, how you apply your mascara and if your mascara can separate instead of clumping.
The best tip I ever got for mascara application is to use a different (clean) wand to comb and separate the lashes after mascara application.
No, I would not buy this again. I find it to be more about packaging (fun colors, etc.) than anything else.
LOL, what are you guys talking about? I'm in LOVE with this mascara. This is absolutely perfect. For the last three years, I've been searching for the "holy grail" of mascaras, and I've finally found it. It volumizes to the max, provides just the right amount of length, NO clumps, and I actually don't find it that difficult to apply. Granted, it takes some getting used to. But once you learn how to put it on correctly, the results are totally worth it. It almost looks like fake eyelashes! I'm telling you: once you go Bad Gal, you'll never go back. =]
Absolutely the worst mascara I have EVER tried. It smudged all over and did nothing to my eyelashes...no volume...no curl...no length. I have asian eyes without creases and my lashes are stick straight. If anything...Bad Gal lash straightened them more. I used it once or twice and threw it away. Complete waste of money.
