Want thicker, sexier lashes? (I know, I sound like a commercial!) You have got to try Benefit’s BADgal lash mascara. To me, mascaras are one of the trickiest pieces of make-up out there. You have to make the decision, do you want thick & sultry, long & wispy, curled to perfection, or even au-natural. Should you go with jet black or chocolate brown, or what about adding some color with a subtle blue or purple hue a la 1980s. The formula has got to be exceptional – not too clumpy, yet it must have enough substance to be worthwhile and actually show up (I hate it when I buy a new mascara and you can’t even see it!).
I think a girl must never be without her mascara and I’ve been wearing this one for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. It’s not a new product, but I must admit I have mascara wanderlust and can never really settle on just one, opting instead to try out a different kind every time I run out. BADgal has left me so fulfilled I may always keep an “extra” around as my safeguard when the next one I try inevidently fails me.
The brush is thicker than most others (even though you can’t tell in this photo), so it leaves plenty of color on the lashes. It doesn’t skimp one bit. I like to only use it on my top lashes. For one reason, I think adding it to the bottom is just too much. For another, it can get downright messy! Apply it to the top in a zigzag to coat the lashes evenly and well and then go back and just hit the tips. This will make your lashes look even longer and prettier!
P.S. If you’re feeling daring this week, don’t just try it in black, go for the new plum shade. You would be surprised how a little color can add such life to your lashes. It’s the perfect pop of color for fall.
