Hey lovelies! I’m here with another beauty product review for you today, I seem to be doing tonnes of these lately but it’s because I’m only just getting around to testing out all of the products I picked up over Christmas. This review is going to be on the Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara which I see a lot of beauty bloggers/Youtubers talk about. I got a mini one from a gift set in the Christmas sales so I could test it out and see if it’s worth the hype.
The mascara wand on this product is pretty chunky, I don’t usually mind the size of a wand as long as the product works well but I did struggle a little with this one. Due to the fact it’s quite big, whilst applying the mascara to my lashes it transferred on to my eyelid which as you can imagine would not be ideal if you’d just done a full eyeshadow look. I also found it harder to apply to my lower lash line as the product was transferring onto my under eyes.
So as you can tell the wand isn’t my favourite but I could deal with that if the product was as good as everyone says it is…
When I first started applying this mascara I was quite impressed with it, the product is really black which obviously is what you’re usually looking for in a mascara and it gave my lashes quite good length and curl. I did find that some of my lashes clumped together whilst applying it and unfortunately I didn’t have any spare wands to try and separate them.
As you can see from this picture, my lashes are quite fair and short usually, I just applied the product to my right eye so you could see the difference and I do think the mascara did quite a good job.
This was the finished result when I’d applied the mascara to both of my eyes. What do you think of it?
This is only the second time I’ve used this mascara so I still don’t know what I think of it yet, although it did give my lashes quite good length and curl I don’t think this mascara was volumising enough for me and the fact it was clumping my lashes together was a bit of an issue.
If the mascara was amazing I could have overlooked the fact the applicator can make it messy but with a £19 price tag for a full sized version I’m not yet sure I’d be willing to spend that much money on it when personally I don’t think it looks any better than some of my drugstore mascaras which cost half the price.
I will continue to use this product until it’s empty and then maybe I’ll give you my final opinion in a ‘product empties’ post about whether I’d repurchase because at the minute I’m torn.
Do you have this mascara? Let me know if you love it or hate it in the comments and if you think it worked well on me!
