Mascara Madness: Too Faced Better Than Sex

April 17, 2016Reviews, Standard


Back to mascara! I just realized that most of my mascaras also claim different things. Whether you’re into volume, length, separation, curling, or all of the above- I’ve got you covered! Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara might be for you if you love volume! This post is also pretty sweet timing, since they’ve recently released a waterproof version.


We’ll start by talking about the wand. This one is different because it is a natural bristle brush instead of plastic (if you want to see my thoughts on They’re Real, check out that post here.) The shape of this one is fatter at the beginning and at the end but contours in the middle. I like the contoured part because I feel like it hugs your lashes to get an even coat. I have smaller eyes so sometimes I get paranoid that I’m going to poke my eye out. It hasn’t happened yet but it does take getting used to! Two coats of this mascara is supposed to have your lashes “reaching unbelievable heights of drama.” This mascara does not lengthen my lashes but the volume this provides is AMAZING! My favorite thing is to focus the product at the base of the lashes and wiggle the wand.


For a while, I thought this mascara was going to hands down be my holy grail mascara. Butttt I went to use this a IMG_3968couple weeks ago and had a drastically different experience with this. I put this on in the morning and went to look in the mirror a few hours later. The mascara had flaked off and was all over my under-eye area! Now, I had never had this problem when I first bought this mascara (did any of you have this experience?!). On the plus side, I have found a solution so I can still get that amazing volume! I’ll do my first coat with Better Than Sex. Then I’ll go in with a different mascara as a second coat. Because of the flaking and clumping problems I’ve been having, I don’t think I’d repurchase.

When it comes down to it, this is a great volumizing mascara! If you don’t let it sit for too long, you shouldn’t get the flaking problems like I have now.  For those of you who prefer voluminous lashes, I would definitely give this a try. Is there a different volumizing mascara you prefer? I’d love to hear about it! If you’re wondering if this mascara is actually Better Than Sex- you have to try it yourself to figure that out yourself! 😉
