I have never really felt the need to splurge on a high end mascara, there are so many good drugstore ones out there for me, the money can be spent elsewhere but after seeing multiple bloggers using the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and showing off their longer looking lashes, I needed to try it for myself, I’m always in need of longer looking lashes – the only problem being every time I tried to purchase it…it was always out of stock! (This mascara must be on the top 10 most wanted) I finally caught it in stock on Debenhams I think, so quickly purchased it, it’s safe to say I slept brilliantly that night.
Too Faced Say: “Take home our Better Than Sex Mascara and all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled. One application of our collagen-fueled formula and touch of our specially shaped brush will leave you begging for more. One coat and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and they’re reaching unbelievable heights of drama. Three coats and you’ll believe in magic.”
Firstly lets talk about the packaging, it comes in a simple oyster pink tube (which has a lot of weight to it for a mascara) embossed with the mascara name down one side, inside is the magic…The hour glass shaped mascara wand is the perfect brush shape to separate, coat and curl each lash, adding length, thickness and shape – although I do find it holds quite a lot of product which makes application a little difficult for me and this can make the mascara look clumpy if not applied with care. The formula contains carbon black pigments to give lashes the jet black look, it is water resistant but not water proof and dries really quickly, staying put, smudge proof and without flaking through-out the day until I deicide to remove it, which it does with ease as it’s not stubborn waterproof mascara.
Overall I am really impressed with this mascara, I’m glad I finally took the plunge and splurged as well it’s not so often I treat myself to a high end mascara, after a good couple of uses I have got better at applying it, so if at first you don’t particularly get along with this mascara I must admit at first I did think my eyelashes kinda ended up looking like a clumpy mess, but I applied way to much way too quickly and heavy handedly, maybe give it time and care – as they always say practice makes perfect! I now don’t think I could live without my eyelashes looking this darn long and luxurious!
