Benefit has very great mascaras. I love how it lengthens my lashes and adds volume. The brush is quite unique making it easier for my lower lashes. The only downfall is it is expensive. Which isn't that bad for a great mascara

So darn hard to remove


I was so excited to try this mascara because I love benefits brow products range, so I was certain I would love this too.
Whilst the mascara is effective and does add volume to your lashes as promised and also separates them nicely, it was so.damn.hard to remove! Like atomic bomb survival worthy! It’s the cockroach of mascaras in terms of removal. I used my face halo initially which normally removes all make up and even waterproof ones, it got off a little but not all of the product. So then I used makeup remover and still, it was really hard to get all of the residue off and left my lashes feeling stiff and sad and I lost a few- ugh!

This was really disappointing for me, I love that the staying power is great, but it shouldn’t be so hard to remove that some of my poor lashes felt victimized in the removal process.

I still love benefit, but please make your next mascara easier to remove.
  1. lovely!


    This is another lovely benefit mascara! Not my go to but great! gives my lashes more length and makes them appear darker
  2. nice


    Benefit has very great mascaras. I love how it lengthens my lashes and adds volume. The brush is quite unique making it easier for my lower lashes. The only downfall is it is expensive. Which isn't that bad for a great mascara
  3. Density


    I received this mascara in the Christmas advent calendar and I was skeptical that it might be another expensive mascara that did nothing. Wow, it makes my lashes look so dense.
  4. nice lashes


    gives me some great volume lashes without looking cakey
  5. The best mascara


    This is hands down the best mascara I have ever tried, It makes my short lashes look amazing. I actually had someone ask me once if I had falsies on! It can be hard to remove but lasts all day.
  6. Amazing lashes


    I received this as a sample and my lashes have never looked so good. The price is just a little steep for a mascara for me though.
  7. Builds well


    I got this as a sample. It goes on smoothly, defines the lashes well and builds without clumping. I find the brush a little too flexible but I like the thin tip for precision.
  8. Did not like


    The applicator is so flimsy that it feels like it's gonna break anytime, it did not provide any volume or length. The only plus was it separated my lashes well.
  9. Huge, natural lashes - no spider legs!


    This mascara gives me long beautiful lashes that don't crumble or clump into creepy spider legs. I love that the brush is plastic or silicone or whatever - it's flexible but the bristles are distinct and keep my lashes from turning into a curtain of black. Also love how it tapers at the tip to get my inner corners
  10. Clumpy


    I didn’t like this sample at all. Lashes went clumpy and spidery. Nice and black though, that’s the only good thing.
  11. Amazing


    This mascara is definitely one of my favourites and I use it a lot. It really makes your lashes bold and long as well as curling them making them look much more fuller. The packaging it self is really good and the brush is also really good and applies really well.
  12. long lashes


    this gives me such long and bold looking lashes, love
  13. mind blowing


    i have stuck to better than sex for so long but wow this is amazing. gives so much colour to my lashes and curls them so nicely. suuuper volumising i just love this
  14. Good but pricey


    This mascara does a great job at volumising and lengthening lashes, but I think you can probably find similar products for much cheaper.
  15. Great value!!


    it will provide high volume to your eyebrow
  16. great mascara


    this leaves me with such long bold looking lashes, love this mascara!
  17. Not the best


    Not a fan of the small hard brush, maybe I just prefer fluffy brush. The colour is very dark and the mascara does lengthen my lashes, but I find that it transfers easily to my lower lash and under my eyes by the end of the day.
  18. Smudge city


    I do not get what all the fuss is about! Every time i wear this mascara I get terrible smudges under my eyes. Had to throw it out. Other people say they dont get this result so maybe it's just me?
  19. Okay


    This mascara is okay, however not the best for the price. It definitely thickens and gives some length.
  20. my favourite


    this is one of my all time favorite mascaras, it really lengthens my lashes and gives me a false lash look it also does the best job at separating my lashes. could recommend this more.
  21. Really nice


    I’m super happy with this mascara. Really lengthening and holds a curl in my lashes all day. I recommend!
  22. Best Mascara Out


    Dark full amazing lashes.
  23. Good


    I have oily lids and this makes my lashes look huge but my curl falls off
  24. Nice


    Got a sample of this and really liked it. volume without too much clump
  25. Great


    I love this mascara it terms of length :) good splurge.
  26. extremely wet


    i found this to be extremely wet and when you use more than one coat, it clumps together and makes them look spidery.
    even after this dries several hours later, i can see that it has rubbed all over my eyelid and underneath my eyes . you have to sit and not move your eyes for a while once first applied so that it doesnt rub anywhere on your skin like eyelid and underneath your bottom lashes....

  27. Great all rounder


    This is a great all rounder mascara. Lengthens, curls and volumises. I noticed that it does tend to flake though but I know other people where this doesn't happen for them.
  28. Not a fan


    Love the way this goes on my eyes but within about 2-3 hours it is crumbling and flaking. Not a great look. It is only possible to wear when coated with another trusted mascara. Wouldn't rebuy
  29. best mascara I have ever used


    makes my eyelashes look so long and thick
  30. Amazing lengthening


    I love this mascara, wand is plastic and shaped with a thinner inside making it easy to apply to inner lashes, doesn’t smudge and doesn’t clump.
  31. Not into it


    I received this as a sample and just found it really thick and hard to apply with the brush. Wouldn’t purchase.
  32. Full and thick lashes


    I have been a fan of Benefit mascara for a while now. Usually I use There're Real which is a great product also! Wanted to give this one a go just because. I feel it is almost just as good as There're Real but this one washes off better which I like. This mascara is thick and full which I love! The first application goes on thick so I always have an old empty mascara wand to thin out the applicati...

  33. Not much of a bang


    This mascara doesn't do much for me - there are cheaper alternatives from Korean brands that make mascaras that are 100x better.

    This mascara slightly added some thickness but hardly any length. Just doesn't do much for me unfortunately.
  34. Good


    It provides good length but doesn't coat the lashes and makes them appear not so full. But it is non-clumpy.
  35. superb!


    I have tried a lot of mascaras in my time and this has got to be the best. It separates your lashes, lengthens and never clumps up. It also doesn't leave black smudge marks under your eyes by the end of the day, like so many do. Plus I find it comes off easily. An overall winner!
  36. Good but not worth the price

    Jes M

    This mascara is long lasting and lengthening however I don't believe it is worth the high price point. I have had better experiences with it's Urban Decay and Too Faced Counterpart. Whilst the mascara provides a lengthening effect it ends up making the lashes look very straight and stick like if not used with another mascara.
  37. goodbye fake lashes!


    this mascara works wonders! it made my lashes look so long and thick that even i thought i was wearing fake lashes! the application is so smooth and not clumpy at all.
  38. Hands down the best mascara


    Forget messing about with with fake eyelashes, this is the best mascara I have ever used. Great coverage, fantastic extension and long lasting. I have recommended this to all my friends, will never try another mascara.
  39. Perfect except smudges on hooded eyes


    I LOVED this mascara and would say it is perfect except for the fact that is smudged on my hooded eyes. I'm constantly on the lookout for a mascara that won't smudge from oily upper eyelids... guess my search will continue!

    This gives such a beautiful, full, volumizing curl to the lashes that still looks natural. You can do 2 coats for a real WOW look, or go in with a lighter hand for...

  41. Benefit bad girl mascara


    Oh. My. Goodness. I recieved this as a sample from my order which arrived in two days, (awesome) tried it for fun and immediately decided to purchase the big size.
    I'm not blessed with long eyelashes and have to curl them for impact, I nonchalantly brushed it on for fun and what an outcome! Wasn't looking for a mascara, I don't wear much makeup at all but love the definition and drama of th...

  42. natural and lengthening


    Best mascara by far, because the thin long wand lengthens the lashes and separates them, without making them clumpy! i HATE clumpy lashes, and this mascara is great for day and night use!
  43. Lives up to the hype


    This is a great mascara but I prefer to use it for night time looks - its a bit much for every day use as it gives quite a dramatic defined finish to your lashes.
  44. Great


    A really great mascara! It gives dramatic results - my lashes are so huge and defined with this. It's a bit much for my everyday look but I love to use it for a night out. I have had no irritation from the product and it's easy enough to remove.
  45. Great mascara


    Really nice mascara, volumising, not clumpy.
  46. Amazing


    This is perfect to keep in your clutch on a night out or in your work bag for touch ups. Amazing mascara and so cheap!!
  47. Pretty good


    Pretty good. Makes your eyes so whispy. Buy
  48. In love with this mascara!

    Miss Na

    When I first tried this mascara I thought it was a bit intense but the more and more I use it the more I can’t live without it! Definitely for those who love a dramatic look (and I don’t mean clumpy it doesn’t do that at all). I just ordered more I highly recommend this mascara.
  49. Fantastic!


    Definitely No clumping! Great volumising mascara and also great staying power. So so happy with this benefit Mascara.
  50. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    This is my favourite mascara ever!!! I have short, stubby eyelashes and this mascara makes them so long
  51. THE BEST!


    Worth every cent, great mascara, doesn’t clump, applies evenly and perfectly without being too much
  52. Great


    This really emphasises my lashes and does not transfer.
  53. Average


    I bought this after reading all the hype around it and whilst it was good it wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. I have so many lashes and this just made them clump and didn’t really make them appear much longer. It was long lasting though and didn’t smudge throughout the day so that was a positive though.
  54. Mediocre


    While this mascara has a lovely deep black colour, it is very clumpy. It takes a while to get the hang of using it to avoid clumps. Also, there seems to be some little flaky bits that fall off after a few hours of wear. I wouldn't purchase it again.
  55. Really good


    Doesn't clump, provides really good volume and stays on all day. I received this as a free gift with an order.
  56. Lashtasic


    I love this mascara! My lashes look amazing. Only problem I have is that it runs a little so after a few hours I have black marks under my eyes. I might try a waterproof version. Still worth using for the results though.
  57. Bang!


    Ok Benefit, I see you!
    Girl... This mascara is everything. It glides on perfectly plumping each lash every time with no clumps. Just beautiful bold black lashes. I can see why they named this product Badgal Bang, because your lashes will look GOOD.
  58. Not clumpy


    My number one necessity for mascaras is that they are not clumpy, and this mascara certainly isn't. It glides on well and defines the lashes. I really like Benefit mascaras, they always good brushes for application too.
  59. Impressed!


    Received this in a gift bad and I was pleasantly surprised with the formula of this mascara. I'm loyal to tubing mascara, but this mascara gave me really long and perfectly separated lashes. A good travelling or bottom on the handbag back up, but did leave a little bit of smudge after a long day.
  60. looks like lash extensions


    OMG this looks so good on my lashes!! i bought it to try it out because its so highly rated and it definitely lived up. Would not recommend if you like a more natural look though.
  61. I wanted to love this


    I bought this after it was mentioned on the Beauty IQ podcast (not as a recommendation, just in reply to what mascara the girls use) but unfortunately it’s just not for me. I did my research and people were raving about it on YouTube for its extended staying power, but I find it gives me panda eyes within about 2-3 hours. Confusingly, this isn’t supposed to happen. When I first used it I was so di...

  62. Good


    This coats my lashes and makes them look extremely long and thick but it can transfer after some hours but that can just be because I have very long lashes
  63. Best Mascara Ever


    I’ve tried so many mascaras looking for the perfect one, and this is DEFINITELY it! It lengthens soo so well and the volume is buildable to whatever you like- HIGHLY recommend.
  64. Best Mascara Out


    By far the best mascara I have ever used!
  65. very cute size


    It is great for taking with while travelling. it is most important thing in my makeup bag and makes my lashes look so long and thick. jet black color amazing.
  66. amazing


    This mascara lifts up your lashes and makes them look very long and its very black. dark,
  67. perfect


    this is the most perfect mascara! it does everything you could ever ask for and more! it makes the lashes look very long, thick, full, curly and black. Definitely recommend!
  68. Amazing volume & length


    In my 45 years I have tried many mascaras, always looking for volume (without clumps) and length.I can say, without question, this is the best of the lot. Reasonably priced, lasts for months, never dries up, provides incredible volume and length etc etc etc. Will be sticking to this lovely for awhile
  69. Love this


    Volumising but not clumpy. Lasts all day and makes my lashes look beautiful.
  70. No more false lashes


    I have gone through many mascaras and this is one I always come back to because no other product compares. It gives me length, drama and volume all in one. The brush coats every lash perfectly. You can build it up for a more dramatic effect and it never goes clumpy or dry and flakey. It's a bit steep price wise but it is worth it! I have repurchased many times and will continue to do so.
  71. Good mascara. smudges easily


    Good mascara. Only problem is I find the formula too wet and smudges easily
  72. Don’t love it


    I may be the only person that doesn’t love this mascara. I find it smudges on me and doesn’t make my lashes look any fuller or longer than a $10 mascara does.
  73. amazing


    This mascara is so good, lengthens and separates the lashes perfectly. Really good for people who want a long, dark but not clumpy look. Especially perfect for the lower lashes because the brush is super thin.
  74. GREAT.


    After now being in iso and not being able to have my lashes done which l miss so much l needed a mascara to help my short lashes and something to make them look great and this mascara does all that. l found 2 coats where enough to get the wow that l love with lashes so ladies who are in iso try this mascara you will love it.
  75. love it


    Looove this mascara! It’s perfect for creating bold eyes. It’s my go to for nights out
  76. Hands Down Best Mascara


    I'm on my 3rd one of these. It is my absolute holy grail Mascara. Every time I wear this I get so many compliments on my eyes and people think I have false lashes on. I love the thin wand and short bristles as I have naturally long lashes so I can really get into the roots of my lashes. It requires a bit of patience and working with to achieve the desired result but it's worth the work. I only wea...

    This mascara is EVERYTHING I want in a mascara! It’s dramatic, super black, lengthening, volumising, doesn’t flake off or give me panda eyes AND hold the curl perfectly throughout the whole day! Fave mascara for sure
  78. sleek, natural and lengthening!


    By far the best mascara I've used in my time. I've always been in search of a mascara that will lengthen the appearance of my lashes without a heavy and clumpy feel. This wand is thin, allowing the lashes to aerate and lengthen without the spider leg clumpage
  79. Love this!


    This one is one of my favorites! It lasts all day and gives you so much volume!
  80. Not sure about this one


    I received a sample of this product and was quite excited after hearing all the hype and positive reviews. Unfortunately though it isn't my favourite mascara out there. I found it to be quite a runny formula which unfortunately makes my eyelashes really clumpy. For me it worked best by using a different brush with only a little bit of the product. Definitely no the worst I have tried, but don't th...

  81. Wow


    This mascara extends your lashes without clumps. It works on each individual lash. I find it’s best to do one coat and let it dry than keep reapplying. It makes your eyes pop!!
  82. gives amazing volume


    vamped up volume so much! stays put all day too
  83. Longest lashes ever


    I haven't used mascara in years but wanted to give it a try to spruce my routine. The results are amazing! My lashes are long and thick, I will be sticking with this for a long time.
  84. Not for me


    I was really excited to try this mascas, however the product is extremely liquid and I got panda eyes after 20 minutes of the application. I preferred thick mascaras and waterproofing.
  85. Drama


    I love using this mascara to make my eye makeup look extra dramatic, if I can't be bothered wearing eyelashes this is my mascara I'm retching for. even my friends have tried to steal this from me after trying it. I'm in love. love the small brush to help separate the lashes.
  86. So much volume


    I love the volume this mascara gives!
  87. Love this mascara


    The best give a long fluffy lash, I have used many mascaras and this is by far the best
  88. Definite Staying Power!


    Loved this mascara, especially if needing something to last a really long time. Something you can wear if you are going to be active or even swimming and I wore this in the ocean and it was still on my lashes and not under my eyes after taking a dip. It can get a bit flaky after long wear but I feel most mascaras do anyways.
  89. Amazing for lengthening lashes


    The only mascara that seems to make my lashes look extremely wrong. The product is also extremely easy to remove
  90. The bomb!


    this is just the best!! so amazing. love the volume it gives!
  91. My fav


    This is my fav mascara. It gives insane volume and two coats of this makes my lashes look almost like falsies. Doesn't go clumpy and transfer proof.
  92. Long lashes


    Not my go-to mascara, but I do like! Definitely gives my short lashes some length!
  93. Great really dark mascara.


    So many people ask me what mascara i use when i have this on. The colour is dark and the effect is dramatic lush lashes. It has good staying power too. I love a tubular mascara so i was surprised i liked this so much. Will definitely keep this in my makeup arsenal.
  94. Pleasantly surprised


    I’m a tubular mascara gal, so when I received a deluxe sample of this, I was skeptical. But I must say, it definitely adds great length and volume to my lashes, and it is easy to remove at the end of the day. Will use for special occasions when I want a bit of drama.
  95. I wish it didn’t bleed!!


    I received this as a sample and from the first moment of opening this up I absolutely loved the wand and the formula and said to myself “I will definitely be buying a full sized one!” BUT unfortunately after a full days wear of it I had smudged black around the edges of my eyes! I was so sad about this because like I said the wand is amazing and the formula goes on so perfectly... such a shame rea...
