Benefit BADgal is my FAVORITE mascara. I use it professionally and personally and it never fails me. Some of my friends and clients have often commented that the brush is too thick and clumsy to handle. I understand how this is a concern, but if you try bending the tip of the wand you may find it easier to work this wand through your lashes. In fact, bending the tip of the wand is a wonderful trick no matter what mascara you use. By bending the tip, you will be able to maneuver the wand into the inner part of your eye which will result in more even coverage from lash to tip.
