Meet the High-Tech Mascara That Makes My Lashes Out-of-This-World Long
Mascara: It’s one of the major players in our makeup routines, and for good reason. After all, when you only have a few minutes to get ready, a few coats can take you from tired to bright-eyed in a matter of seconds. What other product can do that? However, not all formulas are created equal. They may all promise to give you stronger, longer, more volumised lashes sans smudging, but only a select few have gotten us through the good, the bad, and the straight-up embarrassing times (read: sweating too much at the gym). So when a new mascara launches, we take notice, especially when it’s from a brand like Benefit. And its new BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara ($42) is no exception.
BADgal BANG! is a volumising mascara formulated with aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials derived from space technology. Now, don’t roll your eyes. We were skeptical at first, too. “Aero-particles” sounds like marketing lingo for a mascara that needs an extra lift, but it’s the real deal. The formula actually does feel out-of-this-world light on your lashes.
Since the formula is feather-light, you can coat and coat your lashes without them feeling heavy or weighed down. The secret lies in those aeroparticles, which replace the heavier volumising powders other mascaras contain. Another favourite feature—the ultra-slim wand that allows you to really get in there and coat lashes from root to tip for serious length. One coat will give long, lean lashes without any weight, but a few coats amp them up to bambi-like proportions. Plus, the formula is infused with ProVitamin B5, so with continued use, you’ll notice thicker, stronger lashes. Need we say more?
You can pick it up at Sephora ($42), and we suggest you hurry because there's a strong chance it's about to hit cult status.
