I love minis, they help me make my purchasing decisions. For a long time, I’ve been using the same mascara, which I’m more than happy with, but when I ran out of it, I decided to treat myself with this one.
Price for the full-size mascara: $24
On the box, one can find before and after photos, and they are true.
BADgal BANG! 36 HOUR* FULL-BLAST volumizing mascara creates MASSIVE volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula builds volume the more you layer, and 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!
The silicone wand is very flexible. On the one hand, it’s convenient...on the other hand it’s a bit too flexible.
The brush takes too much out of the tube, and one has to remove the excess, otherwise the eyelashes will stick together.
Does the mascara live up to my expectations:
The formula is quite runny and seems to wet eyelashes, but somehow, it’s okay. After the mascara dries a little bit, I take a regular brush and comb my eyelashes through.
Due to the watery formula, the mascara takes a long time to dry.
And the main disappointment: after 4 hours of wear, the mascara falls off.
I don’t know about it being water-resistant, but it managed to survive snow without leaving stains on the upper lid.
My thoughts on it in general: just a good mascara. If you like expressive eyelashes and agree to comb the lashes through after application, this is for you! It makes my eyelashes black and long.
Cons: flaking. In multiple coats, it can create a spider legs effect. Can be removed with micellar water, though not without effort.
Pros: blackest black. Doesn’t feel on the lashes. Makes them visually longer.
I won’t buy a full-size mascara, but the mini was worth a try!
