I’ve been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for the past few months. I had dabbled in the waterproof version, which I quite like, before then, but I decided to give the original formula a try.
Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara is a bestseller, and possibly the brand’s trademark product. From what I understood, people who love makeup love this mascara– but so do people who aren’t so makeup-crazy.
The packaging of this mascara is beautiful; it’s a perfect pink, thick and heavy but still easy to use. The wand is fat and hourglass shaped, with bristles. It can be a little difficult to navigate because of its size, but that’s what makes the mascara effective.
I have mixed feelings about this mascara. Over time, I came to like it more, which is unusual with a mascara. Generally speaking, mascara is best when its fresh, but I liked this one as it got a little dryer in the tube. There’s no doubt, it gives your eyelashes tons of volume without much effort. However, I’ve never had a mascara crumble so much! I find that it flaked off throughout the day, and sometimes it even smeared because of the oils on my skin.
If this mascara works for you, that’s fabulous: it does work wonders for the lashes, and I know a lot of people like it. However, I probably won’t repurchase it, because my Buxom mascara has a similar effect, but with none of the flaking/smearing.
