Review | Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

It's not often that I buy really hyped up products, not because I doubt that they are as good as everyone says they are, but because I often look for cheaper alternatives. That said, sometimes it is just worth paying more for a quality product. If I had to choose between a liquid eyeliner which costs a fiver and a liquid eyeliner which costs £20, I am always going to be drawn to the cheaper one first. But sometimes you have to ask yourself, is it worth wasting £5 at a time trying out rubbish eyeliners which aren't black, aren't opaque and don't stay put all day long or is it better to just splash out on a product which costs more but will last you even longer than the crappy alternatives? 

So yes, the Miss Sporty Liquid Eyeliner which costs £2.79 might be nice enough but sometimes you just need the £16 Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in your life. And yes, you do really need the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in your life!

When I was in America recently I was stood in the queue waiting to pay for a rather heavy shopping basket full of products when I got distracted by all of the little products they place really conveniently by the tills and I thought "hey, I've already spent a lot of money, the damage has already been done, let's spend a bit more!" so I shoved a few travel-sized luxury beauty products into my basket to try them out and, I have found a new holy grail. It's been hyped up, not only because of the product itself but also because of the saucy name but let's just say the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is definitely a must-have.

About the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara:
"The Better Than Sex Mascara Hourglass-Shaped Brush was designed after discovering the bust-waist-hip ratio of an iconic silver screen Blonde Bombshell held the secret to the perfect brush silhouette that separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. One coat of the carbon black, collagen-fueled mascara formula and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled and dramatic. Three coats and achieve the most intense black, oversized, multidimensional lashes possible!"

Once you get past the rather gaudy name, the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is, without a doubt, the best mascara I have used. With the pretty in pink packaging and the unique hourglass shaped wand, even one coat of this blacker-than-black mascara transforms the lashes. There are so many mascaras out there, all promising different results, it is hard to know what to look for when it comes to choosing a new one. I love the false lash effect look with big, full lashes which really open up the eyes and I can happily say that this mascara delivers big, dramatic results. 

Even though this mascara is travel-sized, I find it so easy to apply and I absolutely love the unique hourglass shaped wand. The formula is very thick and opaque in colour and it isn't a wet mascara meaning that it doesn't transfer onto the top of the eyelids after application - a real pet hate of mine! This mascara really elongates the eyelashes and makes them appear so much fuller, almost like false lashes but without the hassle of applying them. One coat gives obvious results but the more you apply, the bigger the lashes get without clumping or making the eyelashes appear spidery so I usually apply 2 or 3 coats for bigger results. I absolutely adore this mascara and I can definitely see the hype surrounding it. I did wonder if it was only popular because of the gaudy name but no, look past the name as the product itself is amazing!

As soon as this mascara runs out in this mini-sized tube, I will not be hesitating to purchase the full-sized version. It does everything it claims to do and it really is better than any drugstore mascara I have tried. At £19 it is expensive for a mascara but I really believe that it makes the rest of my make-up look better and finishes off my eye make-up perfectly. It makes the eyelashes appear fuller and thicker and I don't think I will be able to find a mascara to compete with this one!
