Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Plum Mascara

The Benefit mini mascara duo of BADgal Lash and BADgal Plum was a GWP, which frankly, would have been the only way to get me to test them considering my huge disappointment with BADgal Blue a few years ago. I like several Benefit Cosmetics products, but their previous mascaras have never gotten on my good side.

Neither did BADgal Plum. Just like with its blue predecessor, the color never shows up on my lashes and doesn't contribute anything. Add to that sub-par performance, no extra definition and a propensity to smudging and you get an inferior mascara at an inflated price.

Bottom Line: I doubt I can bring myself to test the black one.

BADgal Plum Mascara ($19) is available from Sephora, in store and online.

  1. Badgal is one of the worst mascaras I have tried. I first tried a sample tube, and it was so dry that nothing even appeared on my lashes. (I paid $9 for that sample, too!) :-(. I finally decided the sample tubes just must be drier since my favorite youtube makeup artists, Pixiwoo, rave about Badgal, so I swapped for a new full tube. It was not nearly as dry, but still just as bad...SO clumpy, it's impossible to make lashes look nice. it also smudges and flakes. The only mascara I ever tried that was worse was Fresh's Supernova and Firebird.

  2. I'm allergic to BADgal Plum- whatever red dye they use in that mascara turns my eyes red and leaky and gooey--not good.
