Benefit Bad Gal Brown Mascara entered my life a few days ago so I put it through the paces this morning and I’m actually loving it.
Check it after the jump!
Ummm I gotta be honest here…I don’t really like Benefit Bad Gal Mascara in general particularly the black. I’m not sure why but it never really worked well for me. I was pretty happy to see Benefit Bad Gal Brown Mascara since it’s a completely different applicator when compared to the others in the line. The applicator is one of the key reasons I wasn’t into the black version as it created a feather effect on my lashes and more of a natural look. You know the Muse, she’s ever the drama queen and likes her lashes full of dramatic curl and Bad Gal never really did that for me. It was more a softer, natural look.
Benefit Bad Gal continues to have a cult following though even if the Muse was never marching along to that beat. However, Benefit Bad Gal Brown Mascara changed my mind.
The simplicity of the straight line applicator is one key reason I adore the new version plus it’s brown pigment creates the “bambi” effect on my large brown eyes.
The mascara itself is nicely pigmented so those with paler lashes will rejoice as it’s guaranteed to create a nice brown look to lashes. My own lashes are a dark brown so I couldn’t really see much difference however the overall effect is quite nice as it does manage to make my eyes look wider somehow. Now as I said the applicator was one key reason I liked it. It doesn’t give noticeably fuller lashes but it does give incredible length. You’ll quickly forgive the fact that you aren’t experiencing a fuller effect when you see how long your lashes are after use. The best way to describe it would be doll eyes or as I said the bambi eye look.
The finish is a fluffy more natural lash look which is great if you aren’t a fan of dramatic, hard, clumpy lashes. It defines, darkens, lengthen, and keeps curl quite nicely.
Overall, I was pretty pleased and that’s saying alot considering I’m not a Benefit Bad Gal Mascara fan generally. It’s particularly worthy of a pick up if you’re blond or have paler lashes as the pigment does a good job of getting lashes darker and sleeker looking.
Nice one Benefit.
