For the last few years, as far as I’ve been concerned, no mascara beats Two Faced Better Than Sex (yes, even with the awful name). But long lash lovers rejoice, there is a new player on the market and it’s amazing. Enter Benefit’s ‘Bad Gal Bang’.
I discovered it when I popped into my local Benefit store for a brow tidy up. The lovely manager offered me a makeover while I was waiting and introduced me to it.
Mentally, I’d written it off before I tried it, but reader, I was wrong. Big time.
ONE coat saw my slightly thin lashes look longer, defined and inky black. Two and I consigned my lash curler to the bin.
For us older women, the wand is everything. Mascara can be a fiddly beast at best but this is a great option. Long enough to work for glasses wearers, the brush itself is a technical masterpiece.
It takes a LOT to get me excited about Mascara but I am IN LOVE with this – get it and you won’t be disappointed.
It’s called the ‘Slimpact’ brush and it’s brilliant at getting through lashes, but also really narrow so you can work on fiddly inner lashes and lower lashes without annoying smudging.
The formulation is also lovely. I can’t express sincerely enough how black it is (really, REALLY black) and it lasts for up to 36-hours. I’ve got an easy 24-hours out of it, and it doesn’t drag or pull when you’re removing it (although you do need a good oil-based makeup remover to get it off).
It takes a LOT to get me excited about Mascara but I am IN LOVE with this – get it and you won’t be disappointed. At £21 it’s a mid-price point as well and definitely worth the little bit extra.
