Review - Benefit Bad Gal

How awful is the weather today? I ventured out to Asda earlier to buy some chocolate mousse for work luches (i am a child) and the air was so damp and frizz inducing – gross. So instead of doing outdoorsey things I thought I’d russel up a review of the cosmetic love of my life – bad gal.

I think this is sort of a marmite mascara, a lot of people don’t get on with it due to how massive the brush is but I love it. Bad Gal was my second step into the land of Benefit and since then I’ve coated my way through about 4/5 tubes.


I have horrible little spindly lashes that resemble little spider legs so I’ve always gone for volume, I’ve tried various wands in various shapes/sizes/textures and it seems that the classic but oversized was the way to go


I will never use a thin plasticy brush again, infact they make me angry with their false promises! Yes I’m looking at you Rimmel Glam Eyes. Badgal is £16.50 and for that you get 8.5g of product, I was a little a lot dissapointed when I bought the waterproof version a few months ago and was graced with a measly 6g for the same price so I guess I'll have to stop all my spontaneous american movie style jumping in pools. Oh well.
I also did a little video of other Benefit products here if you want to listen to my thoughts aswell as read them.

  3. If it's a Marmite mascara, I'm on the 'Hate it' team :( I tried the Glamour little sample once and it smudged so much that it had gone past my eye sockets and onto the tops of my cheeks. Your eyes are beautiful x

  5. I loved Badgal after I got the free sample with Glamour, but I hate it now that I've started using a mascara with a thinner brush. However most people seem to hate the kind that I use (No7 Extreme Length) so maybe I'm just odd.

  6. I loved the volume on Bad Gal (even though I was blessed with super thick, dark lashes - love some extra drama!) but it constantly found its way under my eyes in a melty disgusting mess. I've never found a way to set it!

  12. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it, it totally depends on my mood, for a smokey eye though there is nothing better :)

  14. Cool, thanks for sharing your opinion about this! I've heard and red so much about Bad Gal and always wanted to try out but the price is a bit over my normal price limit. However your review is another point for the pro-buying-it-list.

    Haha spontaneous american movie style jumping in pools, you're priceless! :D

  15. I've never tried this, but it sounds great. I'll definitely have to try it out, although I normally avoid big brushes like that as they scare me! xx

  18. Your eyelashes look gorgeous! I've never got on with silly little brushes but I like my lashes BIG. I've used the collection 2000 false lash effect mascara for a while now and it's my favourite so far :)

  24. i tried this mascara a year or two ago and only got round to repurchasing it a few weeks ago.. its not as great as i remember haha. I find that its great at lenghthing, but can very easily stray into the ~clumpy spider legs~ territory. Ive been using bad gal & collection 2000 extreme colour mascara in black and gotta say, they work pretty similar! xx

  26. This or Dior Show are my secret weapons - swear by them. I have quite thick lashes but love the extra volume this gives. Def on the love team. xx

  27. This mascara works wonders on my lashes!
    I'll never buy it again though as it dries up in a matter of weeks! :/ xx
