Hey, guys today’s blog post is on the new mascara from Benefit. I don’t think there has ever been such a big hype around a new mascara before and I’m not complaining at all. I absolutely loved seeing the Benebabes go to the Maldives to see what the new product was. As well as all of the other content creators celebrate this massive launch with Benefit product launch parties.
If you haven’t picked up the BADgal Bang yet then you can always get yours at Debenhams where they have the new mascara on sale as well as all the other Benefit mascaras. Just click here to see their full Benefit mascara range on their website.
Let’s start with the packaging which is mainly black along with Benefits brand colour. The combination of the two colours gives off this galactic feel which is quite cool considering it’s a mascara and not a space rocket. The mascara tube itself has a geometric feel to the lid as there are 3D pyramid sort of shapes. Whereas the rest of the tube is black apart from the name printed on the side. The BADgal BANG mascara definitely has a space-themed feel to it.
The mascara wand is quite thin compared to other mascara wands. I love how the structure of the wand is short but more spaced out. You find that with many other wands the brush is a lot thicker and closer together to create a thicker look. I think this one is shorter and further apart to create a volumlised look instead.

As a woman of Chinese descent, my eyelashes aren’t long or thick at all so they need all the help they can get. Mascara is always my go-to product as it makes me feel confident for some reason. When I was younger I loved to pile it on until my lashes were coated with about 10x worth of mascara. Now I can’t think of anything worse. I would say I love to use about 2-3 coats of mascara just to add enough volume and depth so that you know I am wearing it.
You can certainly notice a difference to your eyelashes from the first stroke. I applied about 3 strokes on each eye I would say which gave me a natural but defined eyelash look. It’s so easy to apply and you don’t need to keep putting your brush inside. One of my tips is to twist the brush so that you are applying the mascara from a different edge of the brush. Therefore, you are using up all of the mascara on the brush before you dip it in again.
I found that it was really easy to apply mascara to my inner eyelashes at the wand was so thin. I applied the mascara to these areas by tilting the wand at an angle so that it reached the inner corners of my eyes. Once I had finished applying my mascara I just used my finger to brush them upwards to create a slight curl as I didn’t have an eyelash curler with me. This is probably not the right thing to do but I found that they dried with a natural curl which I loved.
Overall I really like the product and I can’t wait to test it out some more. I can’t wait to see how my eyelashes look after I have used an eyelash curler I can just see them looking amazing. I can tell it’s going to be up there as one of my favourites and could easily compete aginst the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara which is my current go-to mascara.
