Product Review: Benefit BadGal Lash and They're Real MascarasThursday, February 09, 2012
Hello everyone! I am reviewing a couple of great mascaras today - these have served me very well for the past couple of months and I thought I'd share their benefits with you guys!
Benefit BadGal Lash
Benefit: Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara is a sexy, sultry, pure unadulterated black mascara for full, voluminous lashes.This mascara has been in the Benefit line for a while now, and I got my tube as a gift-with-purchase. When I first tried this, I wasn't very impressed, so it went to the back of my beauty drawer for a couple of weeks.
For some reason, the second time I tried it, I loved it! It made my lashes fluttery and pretty, and it didn't weigh them down, which is a huge plus. I love using this as an everyday mascara. The tiny bristles on this brush make it really easy to get the mascara all the way into the base of my lashes, so I can really coat it and build the base up.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
Benefit: Benefit They’re Real Mascara lengthens, volumises and curls lashes for a false-lash effect. The jet-black formula doesn’t smudge or dry out, giving each lash a long-lasting finish.This mascara I received more recently, from the Melbourne Beauty Blogger Event. I find that this mascara curls a lot better than the Badgal, and the curl lasts much longer.
This mascara is a little heavier and clumps more easily than the Badgal, but I think it layers and builds more easily, resulting in a much more dramatic lash.
I also love the bulbous tip that this mascara has - it helps catch the small lashes in the inner corners of my eyes. The more spaced out bristles on its brush also makes it easier to catch small lashes on my bottom lashline. I also find it easier to apply on my bottom lashes without making a mess, which I so often do because my lashes are so sparse and short.
L: One coat; R: Two coats.
Overall, I think that I prefer They're Real, but I will be purchasing both to serve different makeup purposes once both these mascaras run out :)
Both these mascaras retail for AUD 38 per bottle.
