Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

In regards to product names Too Faced definitely go for the more controversial path when naming their products and this product has definitely caused a lot of attention from its name alone. Today I am going to talk a little bit about the ever-raved about Better Than Sex mascara which I have been testing out over the last month or so to see whether it is worth the price tag and hype around it. 
The Formula 
When trying out mascaras I always look for a good formula that holds a curl and adds volume to the lashes. I found that the Better Than Sex mascara did just that on first application but when wearing it throughout the day I found that even though my lashes were still suitably curled, there was unfortunately a lot of fall out mascara along the lash line which is really disappointing. 

The Applicator
For me the brush applicator is definitely a lot different than my current favourite mascara Maybelline Lash Sensational, however that isn't a bad thing as I found this applicator really helped to grab the lashes and thoroughly coat them from base to tip. The large applicator did make things difficult when it came to lower lash application and with the previous problem I mentioned I tend to use a different, non-flaky mascara on my lower lash line.

The Packaging 
This mascara is definitely somewhat of a luxury in my make up drawer in regards to mascaras as I've never really ventured out of the typical high street brands likes Rimmel, Maybelline or L'Oreal.  The packaging definitely feels like the product is going to be something to shout about and when apply definitely feels like a luxury to have.

The Verdict
Overall, I was initially happy with the overall look, feel and application of the product but over the course of the month I started to notice that the product became a lot more flaky on the lashes, especially the lower lash line. However saying that if you're looking for a little bit of luxury to keep those lashes looking curled and voluminous, then I'd definitely give it a try for yourself.

  1. Too Faced is my all time favourite makeup brand, but I really don't get the hype with this mascara! It was okay but nothing amazing, if a little clumpy. The packaging is gorge though! xo
