Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

As promised, todays post is a review of my current favourite mascara, Too Faced's, somewhat controversially named, Better Than Sex mascara. Whatever the name, this mascara sure as hell deserves a full review of it's own. I received this mascara in a beauty box, around two years ago... I'm pretty sure it was Latest in Beauty. I hadn't heard much about the mascara at that point so apart from noticing it's beautiful dusky pink packaging, I didn't think much to it and shoved it into my mascara drawer. Skip forward a year, and suddenly every other post on my Bloglovin feed was raving about the Better Than Sex mascara.. I was sitting there wondering why my brain kept nudging me, until suddenly I thought, ohhhhh yeaaaaaah, I have that! So I fished the dusky pink metal tube out and thought I would put it to the test myself. I can honestly say, I've never looked back.

There is a lot to love about this mascara, if you're into your big, bold, blacker than black lashes, you need to buy this mascara. A couple of coats of the product equals voluminous, longer and fuller lashes and instantly makes you feel like a lash fluttering fairy. The wand has an hourglass shape which makes the application great and also so easy to get into the inner and outer corner lashes. A lot of people have asked if I'm wearing false lashes when I'm wearing this mascara, that's when you know a mascara is doing it's job!

I really didn't want to say anything negative about this product (this is not sponsored, I genuinely just have so much love for it) however, admittedly, the first couple of times you use a new tube, the mascara is very wet, which can make it quite difficult to work with. But please, do not be put off! After a couple of uses the consistency dries up ever so slightly and this makes such a difference. The lasting power is great, the products stays on all day and does not transfer onto your lids or under-eyes, avoiding the panda look is an essential! However, at the end of a long day, the last thing you want is a mascara that just won't budge, do not fear, the product is easily removable with a good eye make-up remover or micellar water, for example the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (review coming soon!).

The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara can be purchased online here from Too Faced at £17 or in store from here at Debenhams at £19 or here at Sephora at US$23.
