Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

Today I want to tell you about a product that I am REALLY excited about, it’s new Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced. I love the Too Faced brand, they have some really innovative products and some stunning palettes plus their range is cruelty free, and this mascara doesn’t disappoint.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Open

Better Than Sex Mascara has a unique hourglass shaped brush, and although I did find it quite large (with rather a large cumbersome handle) and difficult to apply the mascara to the top of my upper lashes at first I did soon get used to it. The brush is fairly wide and this makes it really easy to apply the mascara in less strokes, particularly to the underneath of the upper lashes. Plus you can then use the bulbous end of the brush to gently press the mascara on to the bottom lashes.

The image below shows a close-up of the hourglass shaped brush.

The product itself is a really dense black colour, and is described by Too Faced as having a ‘collagen-fueled formula’ (although I’m not too sure what this means!). Better Than Sex Mascara gives the upper lashes lots of upward curl and isn’t blobby or clumpy at all.

Plus HALLELUJAH it doesn’t smudge! I often experience black smudges under the eyes and up towards my brow bone with lots of the mascaras that I have tried (Benefit’s They’re Real included unfortunately) but this one stays put.

It’s definitely the best mascara that I have used in a long time! Have a look at the before and after images below to see what a difference it makes…

You can see that my upper lashes just about reach my eyebrows, and they have lots of upwards curl. Better Than Sex gently defines each lash with a coating of dense black mascara and I love it! It doesn’t really thicken lashes though, so if you’re looking for a thickening mascara then this might not be the one for you.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Stars

This really is a star product (hence my lovely star-filled image above!). I wouldn’t say it was particularly cheap when compared with a lot of other good mascaras, but definitely worth the money I would say.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is priced at £19, available with free delivery from Look Fantastic.
