Receiving the ‘Bad Gal Bang’ mascara in my Birchbox was the most exciting thing to happen to me in a while..
After seeing this mascara advertised and promoted everywhere seeing this in my box was so great – I wanted to see if it lived up to the hype.
Firstly I received the travel size which means it doesn’t have the full affect of the ‘rocket’ type packaging on the handle. Honestly I’m not that fussed about that, I care more about the formula and wand.
My favourite type of mascara is the natural bristle hairs, this one in particular has a plastic wand which I usually hate but I genuinely didn’t even notice until I wrote this paragraph.. I guess that’s a good thing right?
Usually plastic brushes stab me in the eye and I just don’t get along with them but the Bad Gal mascara is really nice.
Having long lashes means I can really see the potential in mascaras, and I can make even the crappiest of mascaras work.
My first impression of trying this mascara out was ‘wow’. This stuff really does work.
2-3 strokes is all it needs, I found building this up really made my lashes clumpy. Which you will either love or hate. It made them clumpy but manageable – something I could work with.
Plus mascaras dry out within 6 months, full size or not so I don’t mind having a travel size. I have 4 different mascaras open at the moment (even a Chanel one) and every time I do my makeup I reach for this one – which I think tells you something.
When I run out of this I think I would re-purchase the travel size, not so much the larger size. I think the formula is great and the packaging is pretty cute.
I overall would recommend this mascara!
