Better Than Sex?

*This post isn't anything to do with sex, just a mascara claiming to be better than it* 


an ode to, beauty, best mascara, better than sex, cosmetics, everyday routine, favourite, make up, mascara, must haves, positive, review, too faced, The 'Better Than Sex' mascara (£19.00,) is one of the products that brand Too Faced are best known for, along with their Chocolate Bar palette and chocolate scented powders!
If you live in the UK, Too Faced isn't too widely available, very large Boots stores may have a counter, and a few places online such as Debenhams stock it too. 
I wouldn't go as far as saying it's 'better than sex,' but it's certainly up there in my top 3 mascaras, it's close to being my Holy Grail.

First of all, the packaging is gorgeous, very pretty and girly like everything from Too Faced, however this thing is heavier than some of my eyeshadow palettes! I don't know why it's so heavy, it's not really a 'con', it doesn't particularly bother me, it's just slightly odd.

Next, the brush which is what makes this so great, (for me anyway.) I hate mascaras that have a mega skinny wand and hard applicator such as Benefit They're Real, I don't enjoy applying them especially since I have sensitive eyes. With Better Than Sex, that's the least of the problems, the brush is exactly the way a brush would be if I created my perfect one, it's quite fat, but not too big that it gets messy, but small enough to get to those inner corners and coat the bottom lashes. It collects quite a lot of product, (which i like.)

The formula is quite wet, on first application some people may be put off by how wet it is, but over time it begins to dry up and this is when it works best! If you tried this once and didn't like it, keep trying until it's drier! The wet formula sometimes causes some clump problems when I try to apply several coats, but nothing too major and nothing some Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection can't fix! (£10.00) 

This mascara is all about black, thick, long lashes, if you're after super curl, this isn't for you, but if you tried this with a curling mascara maybe it would work. It makes my eyes pop, a smokey eye never looks great until I apply this. I prefer this mascara to Volume De Chanel and YSL Babydoll which are both more expensive at £25.00. I find drop-down a problem with Babydoll, and with this Too Faced offering I don't find it an issue.
Overall it's a 4.5/5 from me!

  2. A little off topic from your post, but what does the UD resurrection do exactly?? Remove clumps? I'm really intrigued by this product!

    1. It's tagline is "Refresh, Reboot and Renew", basically it lets you apply layers of mascara without the clumps, and if your lashes look like they need more during the day, you apply that first and it makes them kind of 'wet' so that it applies better without going mega spidery!

  3. I love the look of this mascara. Too Faced have been killing it lately - I bought the Chocolate Bar palette & I use it pretty much every day! I think I'll definitely have to pick this up :) x
