For quite a while the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara has been one of the most popular mascara’s ever. Everyone own is, everyone talks about it and everyone loves it. When I finally got the opportunity to but the mascara I decided I wanted to give it a try for myself and see if it’s really better than sex. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re curious to find out too, make sure you continue reading!
Because I’m very picky about mascara and especially about the mascara wands I decided to buy a travel size version of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. This little guy is about half the size of the full size one and comes in an adorable mini tube. The tube is pink and has a nice sheen to it. The text printed on it is black and aside from that there is nothing else going on.
The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is a mascara that is supposed to fulfill your lush, incredibly intense lashes according to Too Faced. It’s supposed to give you full, separated and long lashes with only one coat of mascara. With two coats of mascara on your lashes it should look very dramatic and with three coats they’re supposed to be magic. I have to say, Too Faced isn’t afraid to say things about this mascara.
The wand that this mascara comes with is very different from what I normally use. I like my brushes small, thin and with more spiky hairs instead of fluffy. This one has quite fluffy hairs, it’s thick and it’s smaller in the middle. Because of that I instantly felt like this mascara wasn’t going to be a match for me.
And I was right. This is definitely not my favourite mascara in the world. It lacks drama and volume in my opinion. However it does do a great job when it comes to separating and lengthening the lashes. It’s not clumpy at all but it just doesn’t make me beg for more.
Overall this mascara isn’t a big hit for me. I think it’s quite overpriced for what it is and Too Faced is definitely over selling it. If this would actually be better than sex I don’t think I’d have a great sex life (in my opinion of course). It just doesn’t do enough for me. It’s not as dramatic and black as I hoped and it actually looks kinda dull. Nope, not a hit!
The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is available at Sephora for €12 (mini) €23 (full size).
That was it for today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which mascara you enjoy using!
