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!

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.

This stuff is awesome gives you the vavavoom lashes you are always after yet other mascaras leave you constantly wanting! Cute name and packaging too!!!

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.

I received a trial size in a gift bag from a Myer Christmas party one year and it was my holy grail mascara, I enjoyed the fullness this mascara gave me. I love everything about it except this one is not waterproof so winter was the only time I could wear it. I was looking at purchasing a full size but was introduced to the they're real mascara also by benefit. Overall I still love this product but maybe will try the waterproof version.

Full fluttery lashes
THIS IS MY GO TO MASCARA.
I am always willing to try a new mascara formula that promises to be the next big thing because if there's only one thing on my face, it's mascara. In spite of trying many different formulas, I keep coming back to Bad Gal and nothing so far from drug store to high end products has beaten it.
The brush is HUUUGE which if you had tiny eyes might be a little difficult to use. It also can be a little difficult for un-co's like me as I will often wobble and get a little on my eye lid or corner. Nothing a cotton bud can't fix and for this reason I tend to do eye makeup before I put anything else on my face. If you can get past the slight difficulty of the brush, it has very dense traditional bristles that do a great job of distributing product and separating lashes. The hugeness is also super convenient; one swipe and pretty much every lash will be covered. What's more, one swipe is enough for a full volume daytime lash look.
Another swipe and you will have super thick, separated, long dramatic lashes. No clumps, no flaking, no smudging.
Even though BadGal makes my lashes super fat, they aren't heavy or weighing my lids down - like a lot of other mascaras tend to do. It's also been really good for my eyes with contacts as there is no flaking.
It's easy enough to remove with some eye makeup remover but doesn't run the second it is exposed to a tear or drop of rain.
For me, this is a far more effective mascara than They're Real if you want a false lash effect and has the added bonus of being subtle enough for every day wear with just one coat. This is expensive compared to many other mascaras, but if I count all the money I have thrown away on dud mascaras that don't work versus the investment in one tube of BadGal, I am pretty sure I'm saving money if I stick to buying this.

In the middle
I would call this an average mascara at best for me. A lot of product would end up on the end of the wand every time I dipped it into the tube and I would have to put in on the edge of the tube so I wouldn't have great big blobs of product on my face. It took a lot of brushing, ziz-zaging and combing through my lashes to get the look I wanted. Too much effort than I'd like to spend on my lashes. And once I got the desired look it was more lengthening than volumizing. I don't like the name either. What is meant by Bad Girl? I wouldn't buy this product again. There are soo many many more affordable wonderful mascaras out there!

not for me
I heard so many rave reviews about this mascara, Couldn't wait to try it out and get the big luscious lashes everyone was talking about! Sadly this mascara really didn't do much for my lashes. It wasn't a terrible product, but there was nothing really special about it either. The brush is big and bulky, the colour is pigmented but overall maybe i had built it up too much, having read so many positive reviews. Won't be buying this one again.
