Anyone that wears makeup has heard of the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. It’s rumored to be… well better than sex. But is this $23 mascara really worth your buck?
Sure $23 may seem a little excessive for someone that’s on a budget (like myself) especially considering you can buy drugstore mascara for about $5. But I personally find this mascara to be something to splurge on. Generally I stick with the cheap stuff and what comes in my Ipsy bag, but liquid lipstick and mascara are my personal vices. This mascara is the best of the best. I have tried so many different mascaras in my lifetime and this one really knocked it out of the park.
Sure, the packaging is nothing special. But it works. For $23 your getting 8 ml, which generally lasts me 3 months or so. Of course I use multiple layers. But if you start with a primer, I guarantee you 2 coats of this stuff is going to make your lashes look absolutely stunning.
Now for the benefits, this mascara gives me incredible volume without my lashes being weighed down. With 2-3 coats you don’t have a lot of clumping which definitely doesn’t happen with your drugstore mascara. It also lengthens, prior to this I had only found one other mascara that was able to give me length and volume. That mascara was younique’s fiber lashes and that mascara gave me a a cornea infection. So i’d say that Better Than Sex is the way to go. Finally, this is a long-wear mascara. I’ve slept in this and woke up in the morning to pretty lashes. It will literally last you 24+ hours. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Here’s a before and after: (primer, 2 coats, and no lash curling)
As you can see the difference is night and day, drugstore mascaras just don’t do that. Overall, if mascara is one of your favorite beauty items, I recommend this one. Coming from someone who’s tried almost every mascara under the sun, I can tell you this one’s good and your $23 will be well spent. Purchase Here
