Hey everyone! I recently went to Sephora and saw this on the shelf for $15. I've always loved sample sizes and it looked promising so I picked it up! This sample kit is called Benefit Tan About Town and three samples are given to you: Some kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker in Medium, the Hoola Bronzer, and the famous Bad Gal Lash Mascara. This post is quite picture heavy, I hope you enjoy!
The label at the bottom suggests that it be applied evenly all over your face with your fingertips. This packaging looked cheap but very cute because of it's size. When it comes to the actual product though, it had a weird card box smell when I opened it and used it. I'm not sure what to think of this product or what the function of it is entirely... as it felt and looked greasy and the coverage was very light. With the retail price being $29, I'm glad I took the disappointment with the lower price. The sample size offers 1.8g of product as opposed to the 9.5g with the full sized product. Scroll down for swatches!
I didn't know the small one and the big one had different names! Well, its more like an add on. A Little Bit BAD Gal Lash Mascara itself retails for $9 USD, in return, you get 4g of product. The full sized one retains for $19 USD and gives you 8.5g. I loved this mascara because this formula is a drier formula than most, which makes sense because it's not waterproof. There's the one downside! I didn't expect the bristles to be the exact same size as the full sized mascara but it was. I don't have voluminous lashes, which would be the most suitable for this mascara. Instead, I have short, stubby, thin lashes! While I liked this mascara, I don't think this is the best for me. Scroll down for my application of it at the bottom!
