RECIPE: Quinoa Chicken Bowls

Packaging - 5 (excellent)
Length - 5 (excellent)
Flake Free - 5 (excellent)
Volume - 3 (average)
Clump - 0 (awful)

I was so stoked to try this new mascara from Benefit Cosmetics! This is a spin off of their classic Bad Gal Mascara, called Bad Gal Bang! It touts that it gives mega volume that is flake free for 36 hours!

So here is the breakdown. I did NOT wear this mascara for 36 hours, I take my makeup off at night, so I wasn't willing to test that factor. BUT I did apply it at about 7:30 a.m. and it is still flake free by 7 pm, so that is good enough for me, and definitely impressive. I love the packaging. It's functional and fun. Benefit is known for their quirky packaging and I am not always in love with it, but this one as a fun feel, while still looking high end. And MAN does it add length!

But it wasn't all good. The fatal flaws with this mascara is its clumpiness and volume. It really didn't make my lashes that much thicker, but I had like 9 eyelashes by the time I was done applying this. It didn't seem to matter if I used a little, or if I layered it on. Even when I used a clean disposable mascara wand to pry my lashes apart, it didn't work. The mascara is also very wet, which meant it got all over my lids and under my eyes. But once it is dry my lashes feel like plastic. So between the messy application and the clumped look, I am going to pass on this one over all. I will continue to use it, and update this is my opinions change after 5 days of we
