Benefit BAD gal BANG mascara review

Hello all my beauty lovers, welcome back.
I have been meaning to review this mascara for a while now.  I received this as part of my March Birchbox samples.


All I can say is that I am in love.
This is only a sample size, the full sized mascara retails for £21.50



This mascara also comes in a travel size and retails for £10.50


Benefit product details from their site:

BADgal BANG! 36-HOUR* FULL-BLAST volumising mascara creates MASSIVE volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. This innovative intense pitch-black mascara layers easily for bigger & BIGGER impact. Its custom big Slimpact! brush is streamlined to reach root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, upper & lower lashes for BIG VOLUME WITH 360° REACH!
*instrumental test on 21 women

  • Smudge-proof, water-resistant, volumising mascara
  • 90% saw dramatic volume**
  • 94% said it instantly lifted lashes**
  • 92% said it lengthened lashes**
  • ProVitamin B5 known to fuel thickness & strength


The coverage this product states to give is real.  The only problem with my sample is that it doesn’t remove as much product from the wand like the full sized product does.  I think that this is a design problem with the sample, making it cheaper.  This just means I need to scrape off the product from the wand to make sure my eye lashes are not too thick.
But wow overall my eyelashes are voluminous, well coated, and my eyelashes have never looked clumpy.
A little goes a long way, I have put on this mascara everyday since March and I have loads of product left 🙂 which is awesome.
I will definitely be spending my pennies and buying the full sized product when this one runs out.

Big Eyes Mascara:
This mascara is amazing it has a larger spiral brush at one end for your upper lashes and then a thin brush at the other end for the small lower lashes.  I have an image on Instagram of how my lashes appeared after one go.

The Baby Skin, instant pore eraser was amazing I noticed that my pores were immediately reduced and my skin stays matte for hours. Some say this is a dupe to Porefessional however I cannot afford Benefit at the moment. So if you are the same as me I would definitely recommend this primer over the L’oreal primer I wrote a post on a while back.

The Baby Lips balms OMG I am in love with these.
I saw that these are a huge hit with everyone that I have seen, and there are so many blog posts on these.
The colours I have are cherry me and Pink punch.
In the first use there is a small colour pay off which is lovely and subtle, but my lips feel so moisturized I cannot wait to buy more.

This is the Maybelline Expression Kajal eyeliner which I love the colour pay off is worth the money and I find it such a smooth pencil to work across my eyes.  In the past I have found some eyeliners that are hard to use on the eyes to get colour but this was so easy.

Umm the photo is upside down :p I have no idea why.

This is the Maybelline fit me Foundation anti shine stick which I was very apprehensive about buying but I am so glad that I did now.
I got this in the lightest shade which I believe was Ivory, unfortunately they only had 3 shades which were light otherwise I would have bought a dark one for contouring, it is that good.
This is definitely anti shine and perfect for covering small imperfections.

Rimmel London scandal eyes review.

Hello everybody, sorry I have been away for a while, my work has been absolutely hectic….. Anyway thought I would do a small review on a mascara which I have been wearing everyday lately and that is the Rimmel London, ScandalEyes flex.

I usually find with mascaras that they never seem to have has much volume as stated on the packet and in the ads.  However this mascara REALLY works!

These are not my eyes however they give my eyelashes exactly the same result as this.  As you can see this ladies lashes are voluminous, and her lashes definitely look fuller, and like I said this is exactly the same result that I had.

The two issues I would say I had with this mascara is that it does clump up a lot and you have to comb through the lashes after application, you can see a small amount of clumping in the picture.  And the other issue I found was that the mascara wand was too big for my lower lashes which made it difficult for application, however these are the only two downsides which can be dealt with easily.

My solution:

What I did to prevent clumping was too wipe the wand across the top of the pot to wipe off any excess, this gives you less product however the lashes will have a better effect, and this way you can just layer the product onto your lashes for a voluminous effect.

The solution too the bottom lashes for me was to use another mascara, however my mascara was from Maybelline, for precision I used the mascara called CatEyes which really worked as the wand on that mascara is curved and works perfectly for those lower lashes as shown below.


Hope you enjoyed please follow me , and I hope to post some more beauty products reviews for you soon.
