I picked up a tube of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara over Christmas in Ohio. It’s funny, I almost just typed “Christmas break” as though I’m not a grown up who hasn’t had a Christmas break in…a long time. And no, I’m not a teacher so there’s no reason for “Christmas break.” As a matter of fact, I had gall bladder surgery over this “Christmas break,” so it was more of a chore than a celebration
Anyway, I bought a tube of this in Ohio at Sephora while shopping with my friend Caitlin. We were there on a post-Christmas shopping trip and I was doing my best not to buy everything in the store. Mascara displays were everywhere, so I decided mascara would be (one of) my purchases (I have no self control, okay?).
The tube is adorable. I like pink. And Caitlin’s eyelashes look amazing, so why not? I’m a loyal Diorshow addict, but I should step outside of my comfort zone and try new things.
So I took some photographs so you don’t have to just take my word for it: this mascara is great. My eyelashes are naturally pretty good; they’re not super thick, but they’re pretty long, so I’m always looking to boost volume. Here is a photo of my eyes pre-mascara (No judgment please! I’m wearing no makeup and the lighting is bad.)
So that’s me, pre-mascara. There are a lot of layers here so bear with me. In this next photo, I have one coat of mascara on my left eye, but not the right.
Next, I put a second coat on my left eye. Despite the crudity of my photography skills with my iPhone, I think you can see there’s a definite difference between the two eyes.
This next image is two coats on the left eye, one coat on the right eye. I told you, I did my due diligence here. Again, forgive the images. I see the shadows are annoying. Sorry ???? Finally, two coats on both eyes.
If I were only allowed one item of makeup, it would be mascara. Or concealer. Or lip gloss. Okay, I can’t choose one. But I will say this: when I run out to the grocery store or whatever, if I put one cosmetic on my face, it’s mascara.
Cost and Where to Buy
Like I said earlier, I got Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara at Sephora for $23. Ulta also carries Too Faced for $23, and lots of department stores such as Macy’s carry Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara for around the same price. So it’s a little steep, but I think it’s worth it.
Overall, I would rank Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara 9.5 out of 10. I love it, it’s amazing, but the price is the only gating factor. I would like to try Too Faced’s other mascara products, like their waterproof mascara and their Better Than False Lashes Extreme! Instant Lash Extension Kit. Wow, that’s a long name.
