Amazing volume and great brush!
Badgal gives really nice soft and full lashes, but with lots of volume and length too - it's nice to see a mascara that does both of these things as I hate the flaky clumpy look I sometimes get with other dramatic mascaras!

I love this mascara! It's great at thickening lashes. It gives a good strong colour. It lasts all day with no smudging. Exactly what I'm after in a mascara. And it's easy to remove at the end of the day without feeling like you're pulling your lashes out.

Finally got to try this...
After years of drooling over this mascara, I finally got a sample of it. It's only half the normal length but it will still give me a couple of months of mascara.
I love the brush, it has heaps of bristles that get in there to separate and coat my lashes. I have sparse lashes so need a mascara like this that can build on the lash and make what I do have look full and long and this does.
My only negative about this mascara is that for some reason I tend to get some fall out throughout the day, little flecks that will fall onto my cheeks or just under my eye...annoying if I don't know it's there. But I do like the effect it gives my lashes.

Not as great as They're Real
I bought this for the upcoming party which my friends are holding - it's going to be big and I wanted to wear something that is not what I always wear. I usually go for a natural makeup, almost like a 'no-makeup' look, and not dramatic lashes. I was considering of buying fake lashes, but then I saw Bad Gal - which is exactly what I'm after. I wanted edgy and dramatic look. When I applied the first coat, it was already more than enough. The spiral of the brush holds a lot of the product - when applied onto lashes I can instantly see a great lift and thickness added to the eyes. It not only gave it volume, but length as well. However, it didn't give my defined separated lashes but clumpy and solidified lashes. I can barely make it out between the lashes and it smudges! For every blink, there's a bit of mascara on my eyelids which ruins the eyeshadow that I could have spent quite a bit of time blending.
Not one for me though, but I suggest everyone should give it a go ~

Separates my lashes but smudges
I received a deluxe sample of this mascara in the Little Love Potions set. I have heard some great things about this mascara so I was very excited to try it. Once I opened it, I realised that the brush is HUGE! I was a little hesitant as I have small eyes and short lashes. However once I started coating my lashes, I found that the brush was perfect for separating and coating every lash. The mascara did not clump on my lashes, which is always a good thing. It made my lashes appear darker and a little thicker. It did not lengthen my eyelashes. One downfall I found with this mascara was that it smudges quite easily in the under eye area. The formula is quite wet. As the brush is quite big, I did not even attempt to use it on my bottom lashes. However I usually use a different mascara so that wasnt a problem. I will not repurchase this mascara as I do not like that it smudges.

Great brush, okay formula
It was quite a nice dark black colour, but otherwise the formula was just okay - not really worth the price. I thought it'd be like the They're Real, but it really is a hassle to apply to create the effect you want. It does curl a little, but it straightened again for me through the day, it provided a bit of volume and a little length as well. The brush is lovely though, it coats every lash & picks up a good amount of product.

Good brush but not a fan of the formula
This mascara was ok, not great. The brush was good, round and thick to get all the lashes but the formula was only ok for me. Like most non water proof mascaras, I found if you do not curl your lashes firmly and properly before applying, my lashes straighten out again after applying the mascara. For the price, I don't think I would buy this again.

Of all the Benefit mascara's I have used this is undoubtedly my favorite! Firstly, the brush is great. It is thick with lots of soft bristles to ensure the maximum amount of product is picked up and that each lash is individually and properly coated.
It goes on very smoothly with no clumping or flaking and offers long, luscious lashes with just one coat. For the extra bit of volume and length, two coats are optimal.
I love how thick, full and volumized this makes my lashes look and would definitely recommend it as it has worked wonders for someone with short, stubby lashes like myself! :)

I find this to be a very average mascara and for the price it should be wowing. It curls after lots and lots of zig zaging and strokes but doesn't give a lot of volume. I find it very wet too taking a while to dry.

good brush bad formulation
I was not overly impressed with this mascara. I've tried so many brands and only very few have left a smile on my face, sadly this is not one of them.
It didn't clump which is good, but I felt that I had to apply so many coats to build the look up (for some people that's good) but for someone in a hurry to step out the door not so great.
Another negative with this product I found is that it did not give any volume or length as promised. It was pretty much too me just a mild darkening agent for my lashes.
