Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I caved. I finally took the plunge and purchased Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I know, I know. It's an expensive mascara, but I couldn't resist. I just had to find out if it really was as good as it claimed or people raved...


So, is it really better than sex? Well, let's not go there. How about is it better than any other mascara on the market? Well. I haven't tried every mascara, but I have tried my fair share. Let's see how it worked out for me.


Packaging

Gorgeous! LOVE LOVE LOVE! This mascara screams TAKE ME HOME! The tube a beautiful chrome light pinky mauve colour with embossed writing on it. I really like that they didn't over do the design and verbiage on the tube and kept it simple with only the name of the mascara on it. The handle of the wand is weighted which I also really like as it seems to help with the application of the product. The wand itself is a hourglass shape with tightly packed bristles. 

Formula

It's a bit thick and tends to build up on the wand. Be sure to rub the tip of the wand against the opening of the tube to get the access product off. You don't want a glob of mascara down your face after all. Toof Faced says that the formula is collagen-fueled with firm-forming polymer, acacia senegal tree extract and unique peptides. Basically, they claim that it is smudge proof with all day wear, nourishes, thickens and locks in your curl and finally the formula will give you the deepest, intense black possible...

Alright, alright...so does it fit the bill?


Yes, it gave my lashes volume and length and yes, the mascara stayed on my eyelashes for a good 10 hours. Yes, it gave them a curl and yes made them look awesome.

But let's me honest...it's not my favourite mascara. I found that it clumped on my lashes a lot. I had to go over them a fair amount to smooth them out. The above photo shows my eyelashes without mascara and then another photo with two coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. They say you can go for the third coat, but I tried it and it was clump city. Two is as far as I will take it.

So was it worth the $30 price tag? NOPE! I can recommend you about 10 drugstore alternatives that will give you the same look or an even better one. If your into high-end mascaras with gorgeous packaging that will give you that intense eyelash look, then this is a great product. But for any of my more budget conscious readers, I would suggest skipping this one. No hurt feelings Too Faced, you know I love you.

Let me know your thoughts!
