Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara

When it comes to mascara, I’d consider myself to be very difficult to please. I’m looking for a super black formula with the ability to both add volume and length to my lashes; and surprisingly this is not easy to come by. I often find mascaras that tick several boxes but never all, so on my never-ending mascara mission, I thought I’d finally give in and buy the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and I’m so glad I did!

This is actually my first Too Faced purchase – along with another that will feature soon – and having heard mixed reviews, mostly raving ones, I was sceptical that I would finally find my holy grail mascara.

This mascara claims that it separates coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection and with its collagen addition, this is definitely expected. I’ve tried and tested this mascara solidly for a month and I can wholeheartedly say that it is the best mascara I’ve ever used, even rivalling my drugstore favourite, Maybelline’s Lash Sensational. It gives exactly what it claims; incredible volume and length.

The wand itself is shaped like an hourglass and the idea is that it distributes just the right amount of product evenly onto the lashes, eliminating clumping and spider lashes. The brush is on the larger side and initially this put me off as I was worried it would end up all over my lids but it’s actually super easy to apply and the shape does significantly help with this. It also has no fall out throughout the day, which is an added bonus for me. The formula is quite thick and dry, which could be off-putting but it actually helps to make the lashes appear thicker.

Now it wouldn’t be a beauty review without mentioning the packaging and, as with all too Faced products, they really have put a lot of effort into it and personally, I really like the metal tube. I know some people have complained at the weight and size but this isn’t really an issue for me and I actually think the weight helps to make application easier. And the tube is pink so what isn’t to like?

Overall, this mascara does everything that I would want and more. It lasts all day, doesn’t have any fall out and it leaves my lashes looking lengthened, defined and blacker than black. I can now declare this my holy grail mascara. That is until I find another that I love even more!

Have you tried the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara? What are your thoughts?


  1. I have used this in the past, but find it flakes off towards the end of the day. I definitely prefer the Benefit mascara's to this one, but so glad you've found your number one mascara! I think we all need that :)

    1. I thought at first it was a bit flakey but that seems to have stopped as I've used it more! I think this has been replaced by a Benefit one now too though!
