Hey! So i bought recently a travel essentials box from ASOS full of mini travel sizes, and i bought it because i thought it would be perfect so i could try a few things out that i had wanted to try for a while and tell you lot! i had wanted to make a post about the box too but by the time my box arrived it was sadly sold out.
So, Too Faced better than sex mascara £19.00 is of course a cult mascara, ever since it came out people have lost there minds over it falling in love with this mascara all over the place. Of course, the number one thing everyones focused on is the name, of course calling something better than sex is a bold claim!
Its an interesting line to go down for a mascara, but it does do what its meant too, it makes people want to try it! so when i got this mini, this was put on my test list straight away.
So they have a long story about how the brush is modelled on a “blonde haired siren” which you can quickly tell is meant to be marilyn monroe, i dont know if the brush is exactly modelled on her, but it is a bristle brush in a hourglass shape.
the mascara formula itself is rather dry, very dry to be honest i was worried mine had ran out! but that could also be because i have a sample, but yeah its rather dry.
So ill be honest that going in i didnt want to like this mascara, i didnt want to fall for the gimmick of the name and i didnt want to like a mascara when the full size is £19….that didnt work out.
The first coat is rather underwhelming, it does coat the lashes very nicely however and i do find that this brush really can grip will onto them. it separates well and leaves lashes lengthened and honestly much more natural looking than i expected this mascara to look! second coat and the drama does begin to appear, it looks lengthened and septrated still but with much more volume, not a clump in sight! the only thing i didnt like at this point was that it had already made the curl in my lashes drop, but then again this does tend to happen regardless of the mascara that i am wearing!
So i wore this mascara over a 8/9 hour period, during this time i had watery eyes a couple of times, and it was only at the very end of the night did i have one or two flakes a tiny bit of mascara in the corner of my eye from when i cried from laughter!
so i really wanted to dislike this mascara, but really i like it a lot! it lasts a long time, it looks really nice with no clumps and the wand is lovely.
the name may be a gimmick, but the actual product is brilliant!
