Mascara Monday: Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara

Okay, ignore the fact that I haven’t done in mascara review in over 2 months. I know. Bad blogger. My excuse? I just didn’t feel like it. A little too honest, huh? My bad, y’all. Sometimes I just have to quit doing something for a few weeks and months so I don’t get insanely burned out with it, ya know? But I’m back and like after every hiatus, I am more in love with mascaras. And what better mascara to pull me out of the proverbial shell than this one?

I’m hoping that having the word sex all up and through this blog post won’t send perverted spammers my way. And if that happens, you better believe every sex will be changed to a $ex. So yeah. How blunt is that for a mascara name? You either love it or hate it. I’m a bit of a prude but I am also annoyed at every other mascara with the names like Dramatic Awesome Can’t Believe They’re Really Real Volumizing Wonderbeast so this actually works for me. It’s hard for me to hate a Too Faced product so let’s boogie on down and see how this baby did…

Price: $23 from Sephora and Sephora.com.
Packaging (brush wand): 3.5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What It Claims: “An intensely black, volumizing mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. Better Than Sex mascara contains a film-forming polymer for smudge-proof, all day wear and unique peptides for the deepest, intense black possible.” (source)

The Truth: Welllll, it’s not better than sex but it’s a close second. Bahahaaaaa!

What I Loved About It: It gives great volume!

What I Didn’t Like: The wand holds on to A LOT of mascara.

Overall: My mission these days is to provide shorter and to the point reviews. No one wants to read a dissertation on mascara. Not even me. So here goes…this is a GREAT mascara. Too Faced does really well with mascaras so I had high hopes for this one. And it delivered! Lé wand…

Now the wand can be a bit tricky. Because it’s more of a brush wand than a plastic wand, the bristles aren’t super stiff. This is great for folx with longer lashes but it kinda sucks for those of us with wonky all over the place lashes. I’m not sure this is the best mascara wand for combing through the lashes. And the wand tends to collect a lot of excess mascara.

But once you get past that, you’ll find a dynamite mascara with amazing volumizing and lengthening power. I really only needed 2 coats of this stuff to have my lashes REALLY stand out. The formula is on the thicker side so pushing it to more than 2 coats may result in clumping. And while I didn’t experience any flaking, I would have loved for this mascara to have a bit more staying power. My lashes didn’t seem as dynamic hours after I applied it. I’m guessing a good waterproof topcoat mascara can alleviate that problem.

Still though…it’s pretty amazing and I will definitely be making this baby my staple mascara for at least a month. Which is a big deal for me.

Do I recommend it?: Absolutely! I just wouldn’t purchase this when you’re out and about with your Grandma because that may make things awkward. Unless your Grandma is extra cool in which case…buy her one too!

Have any of you Too Faced lovers tried this mascara? Will the name of it stop you from buying it?

  4. Ha ha!! Loving your review! Cracking up at the part about shopping for it with Grandma! Also, this: “Dramatic Awesome Can’t Believe They’re Really Real Volumizing Wonderbeast” – YASS! I’d love a mascara that actually did all of that, but it rarely ever happens! I’ve been intrigued by this one but got caught up in a torrid romance with my first ever tube of MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash! Ermehgerd…I love. But I am a big TF fan and will probably end up netting BTS mascara, just not with my grandmother in tow! ;)
