Too Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara – Worth It?

This mascara is hyped up A LOT in the Youtube world. It is something that I wanted to try since its release. I have been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara since December 2015, so I have a deep understanding on the pro’s and con’s of the product. I use the original mascara that is not waterproof. I have outlined my experience with the product below.

Pros – 

★     Volume – Creates a very voluminous effect of the lashes. Extremely thick and black, just how I like them.

★     Length – The product creates a large amount of length. You almost get that ‘spidery’ affect but it is extremely wearable.

★     Colour – Extremely black and very pigmented.

★     Lasting power – The lashes stayed curled, lengthened and full of volume for a long period of time.

Cons –

  Flaky – The product flakes on me pretty dramatically. This happens after a short time of wear.

  Smudges – I use the original mascara which is not waterproof. It smudges quite a lot. If you have watery eyes, you may have a problem.

Would I repurchase the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara?

It produces beautiful fluttery long lashes. It does everything I want it to do, minus the flaking. So yes, I would repurchase it.

Ratings:

  • Seperation– 3/5
  • Volume and length – 1/5
  • Lash curl – 1/5
  • Added darkness – 2/5

Pros – The mascara did a good job of separating my lashes. If it didn’t sting my eyes  I would keep it around to chuck it on for an extreme ‘natural’ look.

Cons – I have quite long lashes to being with, where usually it isn’t difficult to reach maximum impact quickly. The mascara had no impact on my lashes in regards to volume and length. My lashes practically looked like they did without mascara, only slightly more separated, darker and defined. 

The formula stung my eyes. I have never struggled with sensitivity in regards to eye products. I found it quite strange but did try it out a couple of times to see if it was just the day, unfortunately the sensitivity continued.

Would I repurchase? No. It simply did not work for me, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t work for you.
