OK I know i've been promising this post for a while, but the wait is O V E R! For the past few weeks, Benefit's BADgal and They're Real mascara have been dooking it out at chez FMM. You've heard me say it a million times, so here's to a million and one... i have the worlds' tiniest lashes EVAH! No really, they're practically invisable! How i envy all of those who've been blessed with dark, full, long lashes! But, you have to learn to work with what you've got... and weeerrrrk i have! I've been desperately searching for practically a miracle in a mascara. While i already own quite a stash, i decided to try these two Benefit mascaras simply because i couldn't decide which one to purchase. You see, several friends recommended BADgal which was great, but They're Real is suppose to help create a false lash effect and well, that kinda sold me! How they planned to do this with my lashes was beyond me... but it was certainly worth a try. Besides, i love shopping for makeup at Sephora because i know that if i'm not truly satisfied with a product, i can easily return it.
So lets get started! The first one i tried was BADgal. My first impression was great. I thought that it gave me a nice combination of length and volume which i loved. The formula feels slightly on the dry side which kind of makes me wonder if it'll dry too fast. I've had it for few weeks and so far so good so perhaps there's hope! The brush is a bit on the thick side which doesn't bother me one bit! Particularly since it narrows on the tip making it easier to access those hard to reach spots.
Overall, i think these are both great mascaras and although the consistencies are quite different, they both did what they said they'd do. And really, what else can you ask for right?
