It's such a shame that this mascara has been discontinued. It's such a lovely colour, that looks great with hazel-green eyes! The brush was perfect, it separated my lashes very well. Would definitely have repurchased this product if Benefit hadn't discontinued it...

I wished I could purchase it again!I purchased my last one sometime last autumn in Europe. Had no idea it was being DISCONTINUED.This was my favourite plum mascara: On black lashes, not really visible as purple normally (except in sunlight: it was beautiful!), but it made my eyes instantly look greener. The formula was good, especially in the first 2 months of use. It did make my lashes fuller, longer, more curved, although the effect was not as good as with Benefit's great mascara They're Real, which gives me insane length and volume in its first 2 months. I alternated back and forth between They're Real and Badgal Plum, depending on whether I wanted more dramatic lashes or greener eyes.I'm heartbroken, Benefit. This was the only plum Mascara that showed up somewhat coloured on my black lashes.Does someone know of any decent alternative in this colour?

The only cool thing about this mascara is the shade (and I suppose the packaging). The plum is mostly true to its name, a warm medium brown with a hint of purple to it. It's not super dark though and I still wanted to layer black mascara on top to make my lashes look more deeply pigmented.The formula sucks. It made my eyelashes stick together and form little stick lashes. There were mascara crumbs. It didn't lengthen, thicken or help hold curl - the opposite even. My lashes looked stubby, sparse and clumped into little bunches. Not a good look. Oh and that is with a primer. Can't imagine how much worse it would be without.It's got the big Badgal brush that I like but that doesn't help with this formula. Don't know why the formula wouldn't perform the same way the black one does, but it definitely doesn't. Don't waste your money!

This is my day-to-day mascara, it lengthens and thickens, but is not overly dramatic. This is one of the few mascaras I've found so far that don't cause my eyes allergic reactions either.

I loved the colour of this mascara, given that I have dark lashes it didn't stand out too much, yet was noticeable enough to get complimented on. Perfect for when I was too lazy or running too late to put any make-up on, just a quick few coats of this was all I needed to look more awake with a pop of colour highlighting the eyes. If you're still half asleep applying it before reaching the coffee machine (from experience) careful not to put it too close to the rim of the eyes as bits fall in making them tinged plum with the opposite effect! I'm unlikely to re-purchase due to being kinder to myself in using more organic/natural products. As a cheaper alternative (for those finding Bad Gal Plum stood out too much on fair lashes) try Amethyst mascara by Kate Moss for Rimmel. Does nothing for me as in addition to being synthetic it's much darker than expected. I assumed it was the same bright purple as her Amethyst eyeliner but it's very dark plum nowhere near as noticeable as Benefit's was so I gave it to a friend with dark eyes who found it wasn't dark enough for her liking! Meanwhile if anyone can recommend a natural/organic alternative mascara the same shade as Benefit Bad Gal Plum/a brighter purple, please comment.

Love it. It is the mascara I wear for a casual look. As my lashes are very dark, it gives me a subtle plum colour and more volume. I like it is easy to remove at night. I don't put mascara over my lower lashes so the big brush is not a problem. I give it a four because as as most of the mascaras it releases too much product and I have to sweep the brush first. Loss of money but the only way to avoid clumpy lashes.

I first tried thin mascara in the 'BADGAL black' I LOVED it! (The most gorgeous black mascara I have ever used) After finishing it off, I decided to go and repurchase and the plum colour caught my eye. Don't be put off by it being 'plum' it looks gorgeous! I have dark lashes, you don't really see it unless you look super closely. It's a natural funky twist on the neutral brown. I wouldn't say This mascara give much length but it makes them look fuller and super pretty, lasts all day and even though this isn't the waterproof it stays put!

The mascara is great but it doesn't look really purple on dark eyelashes. I would wear this everyday though.

Absolutely gorgeous on green or hazel eyes. The plum is dark enough that with black eyeliner behind it, I don't think it shows up as purple. It's subtle. Not totally happy with how much comes off the brush; or I should say how little. I thought it would bulk up my lashes a bit more but my experience with mascaras also tells me that giving it some time to gum up a little bit (time and air) helps for more bulk on the lashes. The price is just relative to how much money you make. To me, it isn't too much money. Especially if found on Ebay or Amazon, etc.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
