I am guilty of listening a little too much to negative reviews of beauty products. I have reviewers that I trust and use their experiences to influence my decision of whether to purchase or not. However, while I may not purchase a product because of mixed or negative reviews, I will happily test out a sample. That's exactly how it started with the @benefitcosmetics
BADgal BANG! 36-Hour Full-Blast Volumizing Mascara ($25 for .14 ounces at @macys
What it claims:
🔘 Creates massive volume without weighing down lashes
🔘 Gravity-defying formula contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials derived from space technology
🔘 Innovative intense pitch-black mascara layers easily for bigger impact
🔘 Custom brush is designed to reach from root to tip and corner to corner of upper and lower lashes for big volume with 360° reach
🔘 Smudge-proof, water-resistant, volumizing mascara
👍🏻 As I mentioned above, I started with a sample of this product - albeit apprehensively. However, I was shocked when, the first time I used it, it curled, separated, lengthened, volumized and didn't clump.
👍🏻 I only have to dip into the tube once to get two (2) coats on my upper lashes and one (1) coat on my lower lashes.
👍🏻 The formula is on the wetter side, but seemingly quick drying because it never transfers on my lid when I look up during application.
👍🏻 After having used the sample a handful of times and continuing to see the same great results over and over again, I purchased the full size at Macy's during their most recent beauty sale.
👍🏻 The results I experience immediately after initial application are the same results I see at the end of the day.
I now consider this my favorite mascara. It does everything I could ask, especially lash separation (as I've mentioned before, clumpy lashes are a hard pass for me). It allows me to get dramatic lashes quickly and with little mess. I will absolutely repurchase once I have used this up.
What is your favorite mascara at this very moment?
