I purchased this mascara in an IpsyMe offer.
Let me explain what that is before I get into the review.
If you are subscribed to Ipsy's monthly service, you'll receive 4-5 deluxe sample/full size products each month for only $10, shipping included.
In addition to this, there is usually as least 1 IpsyMe offer, where you'll be offered products with a special discount. They are typically in very limited quantities, so you must act quickly.

To subscribe to Ipsy, click my link & sign up! It's really a great service.
Yes, my link IS an affiliate link. Each time someone subscribes through my link, I receive points & I can trade the points for additional items, so I do appreciate it when you use my link!

So, this is the first IspyMe offer I've taken advantage of, and it was for the Benefit They're Real full size mascara and a sample size of the Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara for $23 with free shipping.

Benefit Bad Gal Lash claims to make your lashes look like false lashes. That's quite the claim.
Let's discuss packaging.

It comes in a black tube with a silver lid & hot pink writing on the tube.
The packaging is cute, but nothing special.

Benefit Mascara

The brush is HUGE. I mean, HUGE. Much bigger than it appears on the website. It's almost as big as my eye, okay?

With a brush this large, application can be a bit tricky.
The formula seems pretty wet, but the brush doesn't seem to hold much product.

I like to apply this by wiggling the brush back and forth on the lashes, base to tip, and then for the last coat, I'll just brush straight through to try to remove clumps. The brush being so large makes getting the inner corners nearly impossible, and the bottom lashes are very difficult.

I find that this mascara does not live up to the hype.
Is it a bad mascara? No.
Does it make you appear to have false lashes? No.
It gives a little volume and doesn't do much for the length. If you're not careful it gets clumpy.
It's better for a natural lash look, in my opinion.

The full size it $19, so if you're really wanting to try this mascara buy the trial size at $10 first to make sure you're going to like it.
I can say with this mascara, I can easily find a drugstore one that I like more than this.
L'oreal Carbon Black Voluminous mascara is still one of my favorites, much better than this mascara and only $8.

Please keep in mind that mascara is different for each person! Everyone's lashes are different, as are your preferences and expectations!

I also reviewed the Benefit They're Real Mascara, so go check out that review as well.
