Today I am reviewing the good old “Better Than Sex’ Mascara from Too Faced. You’ve probably read 100 reviews on it before and probably already tried it yourself too…. But I only tried this for the first time about a month ago so thought I’d share my mascara tales with you because I have a sort of love hate relationship with it. I got this little cutie in one of my youbeauty boxes which is why it’s only a little baby tester size.👼
The first time I tried it I couldn’t believe my eyes. I swear I did one swipe onto my lashes and they were full of volume and looked amazing and I was just like woowww this is incredible! I like my lashes quite full, even in the day, so when it seemed so effortless and easy and it didn’t clump I thought I had found my no 1 favourite everyday mascara. I wouldn’t say it gave a great deal of length – so maybe not the best if you’re using liquid/gel eyeliner as they may not stand out so much… But for a plain eye with maybe just a bit of eyeshadow, this mascara made my eyelashes fluttttter ☺😌
Then I went off and got on with my day. As usual it was a wild day of studying accounting and finance..(yes I’m being sarcastic)… What I’m trying to say is basically I did nothing that should really cause my mascara to budge. However when I got home, I looked in the mirror and I felt so bare. There was nothing wow about my eyes… there was just a tiny trace of the remnants of mascara left. It defintely hadn’t lasted all day and my eyelashes were back to being so very average. Whyyyyyy!
I’ve still been using this mascara pretty much every day that I go without eyeliner. Just because when I do apply it I’m totally in love, but I just have to take it with me and top my lashes up throughout the day (little incy bit of a pain).
For the price I’m not sure it’s something I would be happy to fork out on simply because I’m needing to use it multiple times a day so I’d imagine it won’t last particularly long. Having said this, I do really like how it makes my lashes look and it’s definitely something I am using a lot from my makeup collection!
I’d like to add… I’m currently working on an ongoing blog post which will include reviews of all mascaras that cross my path so that it’s a lot easier for you to compare them side by side! Obviously 50% of how mascara looks is application, but ill try my best to explain what I find works best for each different type! I’m not sure when I will be posting it but keep your eyes peeled 👀😄
