I didn’t love this mascara it left fallout under my eyes and was hard to take off
Long luscious lashesDoesn't rub off. Doesn't flake. Easy to wash clean with water. Gives amazing length. Can't live without it!
greatlovely mascara, truely lengthens the lashes without clumping them up!
Long lashesGives me super long looking lashes and doesn’t go all clumpy on me either
No clumps!I love this mascara! It really lengthens my lashes and it doesn't leaves clumps which is what I love most.
Not bad.It was way too clumpy to use, so I won't be buying the full version
amazing!an awesome mascara. super lengthening and makes my eyes really pop
Lashing outI never thought I would move on from my old lengthening mascara, but I am converted. Gives a natural finish that does not clump together.
Fantastic!!perfect for good coverage
#1 mascara in the whole entire worldThis is easily my favourite mascara that I've ever used. It has the best brush and helps curl my eyelashes with a super black colour. Hands down best ever!
Not for Meverified purchaserI have short eyelashes and didn't find this mascara lengthened them at all. Instead I found it quite messy to apply and hard to remove but also smudged quite easily. I'm not a fan of this product at all especially considering I've used much cheaper products with much better results
Classic!This mascara is perfect. I have short lashes and it really lengthens and separated them. It only takes on swipe to get a thick, dark, even coat of mascara and the definition is fantastic.
Lengthens and separates lashesThis brush is amazing, as its bristles are firm enough to keep lashes separate to prevent clumping. I love the little bit at the tip for getting my inner corners
Long lashesvolumising and lengthening but my curls don't hold
MehWorks ok but I prefer the benefit bad gal bang masacara instead
Excellent Product!!love love love this mascara
DisappointedReally disappointed, at this price point was expecting a wonderful lengthening and professional finish but very disappointed. My cheaper maybellines are way better. I also received a free sample of "roller lash" and it out performed this one by far!
Love thisThis mascara is a little messy (or at least I am with it) when applying but wow I love the results. Not the best with wearing a mask lately as I find that it runs so a waterproof option is what I've gone for but I love the definition and length it gives to my lashes
DisappointingBased on the multitude of positive reviews for this product, I thought for sure that I would love it. I'm actually very disappointed with it. The formula is quite thin, and the brush does not apply well at all. It's not too bad on my upper lid as my eyelashes are quite long and thick, but it's absolutely terrible on my bottom lashes. The weird spike design of the brush does not cover or even pick ...Read More
Really goodthis product really makes my lashes very voluminous and thich without looking clumpy i find it doesn't lengthen as well as the bad gal but still amazing
LengtheningIt is ok for lengthening however doesn't hold much of a curl at all. I also find that it smudges underneath my eyes after 3-5 hours.
Not for meI have super straight lashes and this does mascara does not hold a curl at all. It is good at lengthening but does not provide much volume. Not my faovurite.
great mascara!great lengthening mascara, easy to remove but not waterproof
Not amazingThis unfortunately didn’t work too well on my thin, short Asian lashes. The brush was much too big for my liking, and for me the formula was a little too heavy/wet.
Perfect!!I love this mascara so much. The brush isn't too big and chunky so I didn't make lots of mistakes and get it on my eyelids while applying. Made my lashes look so long and dark and they didn't clump
Thick but not longMy lashes definitely become thicker and defined, often clumpy but youve just got to not apply too many layers. This didnt really help with lengthening though
Decent MascaraI remember buying this to try because it was so famous. I really does do a good job of lengthening and volumising the lashes so they do have the appearance of being fake. Unfortunately it does rub on my upper and lower lash line and smudges so it is not my favourite
Very lengthingI recieved a sample of this with an order, it has lasted a decent amount of time. It lengthens really well and doesn’t clump to much, I did find throughout the night the mascara was dropping a bit under my eyes. All in all a good mascara though
AverageI purchased this mascara after reading all of the great reviews. It is a nice mascara, however it is nothing special in my opinion and I believe there would be better mascaras out there for this price tag.
Best eyelash mascaraI’ve been using this for years! The wand picks up all my lashes and glides effortlessly to give my lashes the pop and full look. Great price and definitely must have item in your purse on the go.
Long lashesA lovely mascara but I need to use an oil cleanser to take it off
Not for meHas a nice natural look, good at adding length - not so good at adding volume. Best suited for a very natural look. I find this mascara flakes easily. Not for me and not worth the price tag.
Not badNot a bad mascara. It separates lashes and doesn't clump but it doesn't coat lashes that well and there is little length. I prefer the BADGAL bang mascara from this brand.
not for me...A difficult brush to use and no-curl or length.
Best mascaraBest mascara I've used. Super natural, doesn't transfer and comes off easily with cleanser.
The best for lengtheningI have lifted lashes and love a long, fanned out yet natural look,this is the best mascara that I’ve found that does just that. Worth the money. No flaking either.
Not for meWas disappointed when I tried this product because of how hyped it was. I have thinner, straighter lashes that need to be curled. I also usually typically wear a waterproof mascara to hold the curl. This mascara didn't work for me personally, but that's okay. I think maybe it would've worked a lot better if I had bought the waterproof formula (but at the time I bought it it wasn't available, and i...Read More
The bestThis is the best mascara I’ve ever used. It separates and elongates your lashes. The brush has little bristles on the very end which help to reach every single lash. Love this.
Holy Grail!I have curly eyelashes and only use this mascara to define them. It extends the lashes and separates them perfectly
so hard to removeThe brush of this mascara makes it the most painful application ever. It always gets onto my lids and is a nightmare to remove. It stays on for ages which is good if you are looking for that
Best mascara I've ever usedOriginally had as a sample tube, and have only used this since! Best lengthening mascara. Always complimented on how long my eyelashes are. Naturally they are decent but this does add a noticeable boost to them. Also, really sensitive skin/eyes and no problems with this product!
Holy GrailThis is my hands down favourite mascara. The first few applications go on a bit thick but I have never had a mascara stay on as well as this. My skin is quite oily and with other mascaras by mid day I have black smudges under my eyes but I have never had that with this one. The brush is really good at separating the lashes so they don't end up clumping together. It is easy to remove with face wash...Read More
HaveI love mascaras and I am always after dramatic volume more than length. This mascara does give me good volume and I enjoyed using it but I was not mind blown. The brush feels a bit spikey/scratchy and pokes at the base of my lashes when I get too close. It performs OK and I am not going to repurchase after I use it up. For me the deal breaker was the fact that it is hard to take off. I have found ...Read More
Almost PerfectThis mascara is a bit gloopy with the first few applications, however, after that the shape, volume, and lengthening are stunning! I use this with the They're Real Tinted Primer and my lashes look gorgeous. The only downside for me is that it smudges. I cannot for the life of me find a mascara that doesn't smudge underneath my eyes (and I don't even apply to my lower lashes...)! If it were not for...Read More
A go-toOne of my favourites for sure, it goes on well, it stays on, and it has a neat finish. It’s never been clumpy, always glides on smooth. Can be tricky to remove, especially if you wear it every day.
GreatThis mascara was really good for everyday. It didn’t made the lashes go super big and thick but as I have many it separated them and made them lengthy without the clumping and dark look. Really nice for subtle everyday looks
lovelove how it makes the eyes stand out, a great mascara and gives wonderful volume
Love love LOVE itThis is my favourite mascara! It is a jet black which makes your eyes pop and the brush is really easy to use. It opens my eyes and makes me look wide awake. Couldn’t recommend it more
Not for meI had high hopes for this mascara, after reading reviews and being drawn in by the packaging.
It just did work for me.
I found the brush incredible harsh and stiff to work with around the eyes. The formula was quite dry. I thought I would've been able to build this product up a few layers to achieve long natural looking lashes, however, its formula became clumpy quickly and it just mad...Read More
One of the best!Without a doubt one of the best!!!
GreatThis lengthens my lashes enormously
Works wellgreat for my not so long lashes it makes a massive difference to my eyes
GoodThis makes my asian lashes look really long and huge
amazingThe unique brush design grabs and grips each of my lashes and get those small lashes, also minimise clumping. My mascara stays in place all day.
AverageIt's just average. I don't think any other mascara from Benefit tops the Badgal Bang. I like the brush on this but it works just okay.
Always a winnerThis mascara will always be a go to. Thickens and lengthens the lashes without clumping
The best mascara for glasses wearersI love this mascara so much! I recently purchases it after having tried various cheap and expensive mascaras and have found that nearly all of them always smudge under my eyes, even waterproof ones. I usually wear large glasses and I think it's to do with that that I always get rings of mascara under my eyes, even in non humid weather, but with this one I haven't found that at all it stays perfect...Read More
Bet mascara out thereI adore this mascara! My lashes need all the help they can get and this mascara thickens and lengthens them in such a dramatic way I get complimented on them! I have strayed from time to time to try other brands but I always return to this one! The only downside is that it can dry out in a few months but I honestly do not know another mascara that doesn't! I highly recommend this for anyone who wa...Read More
awesome for natural looking lashesthis is so nice for an everyday no-makeup makeup look
Doesn't capture a lot of lashesI have naturally long and full eyelashes, this mascara doesn't colour even half of them (compared to other mascaras). The pigment is good quality but the brush is kinda tough and too long for my eyelash line. Wouldn't repurchase
benefitI like how it lengthened my lashes but unfortunately I felt like it transferred to my undereyes when it was humid
Holy GrailThis is my favourute mascara of all time. i am often asked if I have eyelash extensions when I wear it. Its super lengthening and separates lashes beautifully. I especially love that the formula is water resistant - so that it doesnt smudge yet its easier to remove then waterproof.
good productBenefit makes my favorite mascaras and this is no3 in my list. looks natural and does not transfer onto your lids
Love thisVolumising but not clumpy. Lasts all day and makes my lashes look beautiful.
love itmy lashes are lengthened and long. in love with this
LoveeeeThis mascara does exactly what is says it will do! Beautiful long lashes, no clumping and easy to get off at night! Will def be re buying.
Amazing productThe best mascara out there if you want long black lashes! Its amazing. Only fault is its hard to get off so ensure you have a good eye makeup remover.
decent producti was happy with this product before i discovered the roller lash from benefit, in my opinion its better, if you enjoy the mascara wand on the bigger side then youll like this one other wise if you like smaller wands like me, the roller lash is the one to go
Makes your eyelashes popLove this mascara, really gives your eyelashes wow factor! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I've used cheaper mascaras that have worked better
defines and separates lashesDefines and separates lashes, with a true jet black colour. Doesn't give heaps of volume, but great for everyday when not doing full glam.
Lengthens, defines, doesn't clumpThis mascara is perfect for everyday as a single coat, yet versatile enough to build up for sexy date night. I fell in love with the formula for day use - it defines without clumping, doesn't smudge and there is very little fallout throughout the day. I was surprised when I built it up for a night out - same definition with volume. I've purchased this a few times now and always find myself disappo...Read More
Holy Grail MascaraPerfect mascara that is never too heavy and gives nice definition, even for bottom lashes
A natural look with some smudgingI used this before I switched to cruelty-free cosmetics. It has great staying power, but it did tend to smudge under my eyes. It also starts clumping after more than one coat, so it's best for a more natural look.
Good mascara for everyday work lookThis is a good staple in your makeup bag - a reliable everyday mascara for work or running errands. I wouldn't say it lengthens but it definitely gives volume. Not clumpy and light weight. Comfortable to wear.
Great mascaraVery good mascara, up there with the best! I can’t seem to go past Benefits Bad Girl Bang mascara though!
Really nice mascaraI did like this one. It holds your lashes in place all day but it can be a little hard to remove later on
Not a stand out mascaraThis is a pretty good mascara, doesn't clump, comes off easily. It's in the mix with other mascaras around the same price point, the Eye of Horus and Clinique High Impact mascara. But there are other $20-$25 mascaras which are just as good as these $45-50 ones.
Lengthens and Defines!Up until a few months ago I had been getting eye lash extensions. I made the decision to give my eyelashes a break and had experienced some eye lash damage. I have been desperately trying to find products to help repair and lengthen my lashes. This worked very well! I was very impressed with the length I got from using this as a primer and it didn't make my lashes clump up. Yes, I would buy this a...Read More
Use it by itselfI was told by a friend this is a very subtle mascara to use by its self. It’s my everyday mascara and I’ll put something on top if I’m going full glam.
super naturallooks super natural, but also very buidlable
Perfect for nights outVolumizes, lengthens and doesn't clump at all! Makes my lashes look perfect for a night out and doesn't give me panda eyes by the end of it.
Beneficial mascara for simple lashesNot a huge fan of this mascara but easy for a simple face and everyday lashes. Impressive wand to seperate lashes and quality pigment.
WowI received a sample of this in an order and wow! This is probably the best mascara I’ve ever tried. My lashes look amazing they are so long and not clumpy at all. No fall out either! Definitely investing in the full size
Oh yeah They’re realI tried this product because of the makeup community and the first application was like an angel flew down from heaven and danced on my lashes to make them longer and curled and beautiful. I’ve now been through about 6-7 tubes and I loved the blue one as well (so did my mum) and they discontinued which I’m still mourning.
Best mascara !I have always used benefit mascaras and this one is definitely one is definitely the best! Love it
Great mascaraThis is a great mascara! It Lengthens well and doesn’t smudge all day. Although it definitely takes some time to remove.
really goodthis was really good, it made my lashes look longer. Only bad thing is that it had a bit of fallout under my eyes
All time favourite mascara!So beautifully pigmented, doesn’t clump, long lasting! Everything you want in a mascara.
Great!I have been using this for years and is easily my favourite mascara!
GoodLengthens and stays on all day without going clumpy, good product.
Great MascaraA great mascara that is currently in rotation of my faves
Luscious LashesLove this mascara, not only is the packaging sophisticated, it leaves your lashes thick, lengthened and separated without creating clumps, even when applying more then one coat. My holy grail.
Pretty goodGets a little clumpy the more you try to layer, so definitely just use sparingly. Super lengthening and good staying power, I like it a lot for my very no make up make up looks.
Ultimate fave mascaraLike everyone, I've tried many mascaras in my search for the one, and this is my favourite- easy to apply, love the thin style brush, achieves excellent length and volume
Love itLifts and seperates all lashes, gives a lovely natural look.
Doesnt leave any fall out which i love and lasts all day!
Just okayI bought this because I kept hearing about how great benefit mascara was. I was underwhelmed, there’s nothing wrong with this mascara but nothing great about it either.
AverageMy lashes looked so clumpy after using this mascara, I tried using it a few different ways but in the end I had to bin it. Roller Lash by Benefit is my holy grail, leaves lashes long and separated!
my go to mascaraI love how this does not clump and it lengthens each lash
Better Mascaras out ThereAfter all the hype, I was extremely disappointed with this mascara. Not only is it incredibly difficult to apply, it also left fall out that was super hard to remove. For the price and the hype, this mascara was sadly a no for me.
Amazing Results, Impossible To Remove!The wand and formula gave my lashes the best ever results but it is so hard to take off that it actually significantly thinned my lashes out from removing it. I still use this product as a special event mascara but for me it is definitely not an everyday mascara. If you've already got sparse lashes take special care removing this!!
GreatIve used this for a few years now and love it.
