Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

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?).

First Impressions

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.

Experience

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.)

I know, my hair looks awesome, too.

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.

Summing Up

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.
