I never tend to do single product reviews these days, but I thought this one was worth its own post!
Yes, its the highly coveted Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. A few months back I included this mascara in a ‘disappointing products’ post, but after writing that, I decided to keep trying it and persevere a bit more. I was pairing it with my much loved Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, and I was loving the duo. So, when last payday arrived I decided to bite the bullet and pick up the full sized version of the better than sex mascara.
I opted for the waterproof version, because with the ‘normal’ one, I found it gave me really bad panda eyes, so I was hoping for better luck with the waterproof version. So, lets actually talk about how I’ve been getting on with this. My initial impression was just, meh. I wasn’t blown away with it on first application, but part of me expected that as I wasn’t a fan of the original one in the first instance.
What I was blown away with however, was the packaging. Its absolutely gorgeous, and feels quite heavy – very luxurious if you ask me. Anyway, the first application wasn’t overly impressive. It didn’t give my lashes the length I wanted at all. Sure, it was giving good volume and wasn’t making my lashes clump together, which I loved, but I really do look for the lengthening effect in a mascara. So, its about three weeks on since that first application and I can actually say I’m getting on with it better. I feel like the more I’ve used it, the more I’ve fallen in love with it. It still doesn’t give me the length I would preferably like, but it does make my lashes look natural and I think its a perfect ‘everyday’ mascara. Although, because this is the waterproof version, its an absolute pain in the arse to get off at the end of the day. When it says waterproof, it really means waterproof, so I’d keep that in mind haha.
So overall, I do like this mascara, but do I think its worth £19? No, not really. I think I’ll be sticking to my Maybelline Lash Sensational, as it gives me more length and is 10x easier to get off at the end of the day!
