I received this sample of Bad Gal Lash Mascara when I purchased Rockateur weeks back. I’m so in love with They’re Real that it’s taken me this long to try it out.
Naturally, I am going to have to compare it to They’re Real, it’d be weird if I didn’t. (Pssst, links to reviews of Rockateur and They’re real are at the bottom of this post).
I don’t feel that this mascara is in the same height of heroism as They’re Real but then again it has been out much longer and Benefit have certainly progressed since then. That said, it is still a fantastic Mascara. It lasted well all day and had a more subtle and natural result than They’re Real.
It was quick to use and speedy to dry, brilliant for those mornings when you just can’t get out of bed and end up rushing around like headless chicken, yeah that’s me most mornings if I’m honest. It has a lovely big brush that coats every single lash in one small swoop.
It didn’t clump or smudge either, so by time I get to the school gates after my hectic morning, I look like the primed and organised mum I’m supposed to me, thank goodness for Benefit!
I’d still go for They’re Real above all else as I do like my lashes to REALLY stand out but this is a product that we be part of my handbag hero group while I have the sample size.

I finally got on the band-wagon and tested Benefit’s well spoken about Mascara – They’re Real and I am not disappointed!
This mascara performed well in a consumer panel survey. 94% saw dramatic length & volume, 90% saw base-to-tip curl, 94% saw visible lift and 100* saw long-wearing results. It has a lot to live up to with statistics like that and I was really excited when it landed on my desk this week.
I m happy to say I agree with the majority and saw amazing things happen to my lashes in one lovely swoop of this mascara. My lashes were definitely a million per cent curlier than normal, thicker and longer.
It was really friendly to my sensitive eyes and they haven’t been agitated at all by it. It didn’t smudge or clump and was really easy to use. It also dries really quickly which I always give a bug thumbs up to. It also lasted all day.. it’s still exactly the same s when I put it on this morning… 12 hours ago!

What I love most: Everything, this mascara deserves the hype it gets.
What I like least: NOTHING!
