If you’re looking for a volumizing mascara that’s also waterproof, one TikTok user has made the compelling case for Benefit Cosmetics’ BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

BADgal BANG! is one of those cult-favorite mascaras known for creating super long and full lashes that aren’t weighed down by product. Benefits Cosmetics even says its formula is “gravity-defying” thanks to aero-particles, “one of the lightest known materials derived from space technology.”

If you’re not convinced, watch 18-year-old TikToker Alana Perez’s before and after video.

In her video, Perez explained that she went to Ulta looking for a new mascara. She asked a woman at the beauty counter for a waterproof option, and she recommended BADgal BANG! Perez bought a sample size and was so taken aback by the results that she made a TikTok about it.

“Do you see this?” Perez said, pointing to her full lashes. “This is my natural lash. Best $13 of my life.”

Perez presented one eye without mascara and one eye with BADgal BANG! Her lashes were visibly longer, fuller and looked like falsies.

Perez’s genuine recommendation racked up 8 million views and over 2.3 million likes.

“Yesss it’s my favorite mascara of all time!” one user said

“I used to reapply this stuff before, during and after school because it is so good,” another commented

“I thought you were wearing lashes,” a third person wrote

A sample size of the product will cost you $13, but the full size is available for $25 at Ulta.
