Review: Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara

I've wanted to try this mascara for ages but every time I went onto the Debenhams website it was sold out. So when it finally became available I wasn't not going to buy it. I'd heard so many amazing things about it that I was pretty excited to give it a try. 



Opening it, the packaging is pretty and cute. I like the pinky, rose gold bottle. They've kept it quite simple with a tube bottle and the item name embossed on it. But it works. I like that the name won't 'rub off' which is useful so you know what you're using and can show others the packaging if they ask what it looks like. You also don't get ink rubbing off on your hand. The bottle itself is bigger than I expected - I think it's 8g - so I'll definitely get more uses out of it than I thought. 


The box makes some pretty big claims saying 100% of the people in a consumer study said it gave them 'dramatic volume' and 'longer lashes' and 90% said they 'saw a dramatic look with one coat'. Reading this I was expecting even more from the mascara and was even more excited to give it a go. 


The wand has a dip in it, in the middle - like an hourglass shape (I know this pictures not very good at showing that). Not sure why it's shaped like that but I've not really got any complaints about it. So far it was pretty good but the application was the main thing really. 

Before

EXCUSE MY UGLY EYEBROWS they definitely need to be done but this is what my lashes looked like before. I've got quite long and full lashes when you look at them from this angle but straight on they look bare without mascara. 

I seem to have tried so many mascara's since I stopped using my Maybelline Combo but they either gave me length and hardly any volume or were very clumpy so I hoped Better than Sex would solve my dilemma.

After

Well, it definitely has. I've fallen in love with mascara. This picture was taken after 2 or 3 applications of it. 


But it gives me volume, length, curl - everything you'd want from a mascara. It lives up to the claims made on the packaging which is impressive. I wanted to use it everyday to give you a proper review and doing that it's become my everyday mascara. 

I'd definitely recommend this to everyone.  But it's not a cheap one at £19 but is worth the price tag. I've even had compliments from people telling me my lashes look longer which I've loved and proves it does work. It's 10% off on the Debenhams website so if you want to try it now is definitely the time. 


I haven't had any problems with this mascara yet. It's fast becoming one of my favourites. It's not waterproof but I can live with that. The name is questionable - Better than Sex - but I didn't buy it for the name and it's without a doubt lived up to expectations. 


Have you tried Better than Sex? What did you think of it?

  2. It looks great on your lashes and the packaging is cute, but I don't really like the look of the wand! I don't know what or why that is, but I just don't think I'd like it! x
