I think it is Ok for a freebie buy I don't think I would buy the full size one.

How much is the magazine?
I didn't rate bad gal lash at all. Is this one better?

Four quid! The brush is half curved brush and half comb.

It's ok for a freebie and fits in to my makeup bag

I thought it was awful. Made my lashes clump together and flaked terribly on to my eye lids. So glad I only paid £4 for it and didn't but the full size.

I am wearing it today. It is okay. One coat looked reasonable but the 2nd left me with spidery lashes - I want a mascara that makes my lashes full and lush. That said it has stayed on. No flakes or smudges. But would I buy it and pay full price? No.

It smudged massively on me - so much so my DH noticed.

On top of that, it's clumpy, it has flaked a bit and my lashes look very sparse when wearing this mascara. The brush is okay, no better than any other mascara brush I've used.

Not keen at all. Will not purchase or recommend to anyone.

I hated Bad Gal but love They're Real. How does this compare?

Rosiepinkcheeks what mascara do you use to make your lashes full and lush.

Hi Holly, I have been using Mally volumising mascara recently which gives my rather sparse lashes va-va-voom and does not budge or flake. I have used Max Factor False Lash Effect in the past to good effect.

Thank you. Have you tried Chanel Volume? If so how did it compare with Mally ?

rosiepinkcheeks Sun 01-Feb-15 14:58:41

Hi. I haven't tried the Chanel one so cant answer your question but just checked and it seems to have good reviews. But I am planning to try Charlotte Tillbury Full Fat Lashes next for a change as I have been using Mally for ages.
