I cannot belive they discontinued the waterproof version of this!! It was my absolute favorite mascara I have ever used, I used it for at least 5 years. The non-waterproof just doesn't hold up, every time I smile or talk it transfers to another part of my face, like under my eyes.

I was actually pretty disappointed with this. I love the normal badgal mascara, but the waterproof version is a little clumpy. Still, the brush is fantastic and I am still a huge fan of this line. I’ll just stick to the original.

Haven’t been able to use any other mascara since I’ve gotten it, is a bit clumpy at times but others it makes my lashes look absolutely amazing! Natural days or days I add lashes it works great either way. I recommend

My go to mascara - it is the best I have tried! Doesn’t clump and gives tons of length. I apply this before false lashes or just by itself if I’m going for a natural look. I would give this 10 stars if I could

I got this mascara in my Ipsy bag and gave it a try. It goes on VERY thick and smears very easily. It kinda made my eyelashes look like that meme where they're all singular and straight and pointy. I was not a fan. However, I like that one coat is enough because the color is so dark. I'm also not a fan of the brush style. I don't like brushes with give and thats how this brush is. Overall not a huge fan, but they get kudos for just needing one coat.

I got this mascara on a whim because it was on sale at Ulta...I love it. It provides great lift and length, all day wear, and deep black color. Definately will be using this for a while!

i absolutely LOVE this mascara. I got a sample in my Ipsy bag and was reluctant to try it, because i was a better than sex girl and I never had gotten good results with a thin brush like this. however, the better than sex formula/bottle in the past year has gotten worse and worse (everyone i talk to agrees too!!). One day I was at the end, so I tried this, and literally never looked back. My eyelashes are always black, long, and separated. AMAZING!

I wish this was like the original, but since it’s waterproof it’s thinner and volume isn’t as good. I still love this product, it’s easy to use and apply and it’s my go-to for higher end mascaras. I use the waterproof because my hard to curl eyelashes will uncurl using the regular formula. But overall it’s still a great mascara!

I’m absolutely obsessed with Benefit’s mascaras 💞 you really can’t go wrong with any of their offerings. I don’t particularly notice that this volumnizes my lashes more than their other mascaras, but my lashes are always full and long and separated and they don’t crumble off (I hate when mascara does that).

It can be hard to take off - Benefit offers their own remover, but it’s much cheaper and simpler to rub some Vaseline or coconut oil on instead. Rub onto your eyes, then wipe off the oil with a tissue. Easy!

My lifestyle demands a waterproof mascara, and Benefit once again doesn't disappoint. I use a lot of Benefit products, but their mascara is one that I will never abandon in my daily routine, simply because when they say waterproof it really is waterproof and the coverage doesn't clump like other mascaras.
