Is your mascara Better Than Sex?

Mascara is one of those make up items that I can't live without. My lashes are very light and nearly non existent without make up so my need for a good mascara on daily basis is huge!
I like my lashes to be black, thick and long but still looking natural. Normally I use drugstore mascaras as many of them are great and I don't see the point on spending lots of money on high end ones. But when I received Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in BBB Dream Box I got very excited to try it.
First of all - the name, how cheeky it is and it makes you immediately want to try the product. Second - the packaging, gorgeous rose and gold box and very sleek, though heavier than your standard, tube. It screams 'I'm amazing, luxurious, you must try me'.

What Too Faced says?
'Inspired by the curves of a woman’s body, Better Than Sex Mascara features an hourglass shaped brush with extra stiff bristles to maximise the performance of the high performance formula. Enriched with Collagen, Better Than Sex Mascara coats the lashes with carbon black pigment and ensures full coverage for a sexy flirtatious flutter whilst Acacia Senegal Tree Extract hydrates and protects the lashes.
One coat and lashes are full and defined. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled, and dramatic. Three coats help you achieve the most intense black, multidimensional lashes possible! Better Than Sex Mascara is so amazing it provides smudge-proof, all day wear with the deepest, intense black colour possible for a dramatic look.'

What do I think?
Better Than Sex Mascara (RRP £19) is the best mascara I've ever used!
It applies beautifully to my lashes without clumping them, separates, volumises, lengthens and curls them. My lashes are super straight and I never curl them but this mascara makes them look like I used lash curler. The effect of full, thick, long, curled lashes lasts on me all day and the mascara doesn't smudge at all. The formula is just the perfect consistency for me, not too wet/thin nor thick.
On everyday basis I use two thin coats on my upper lashes and one thin coat on my lower lashes. For more definition, when wearing more make up on my eyes, I apply 3, 4 coats and my lashes are super black and thick but still look quite natural.
The only thing that bothers me a little bit is the size of the brush which is rather big, my eyes are quite small and it's a bit harder to apply the mascara on my lower lashes and I do get some marks on my eye lids which need to be cleaned up. But that's a small price to pay for the effect the mascara gives to my lashes.

I absolutely adore Better Than Sex Mascara and while it costs more than I'd normally pay for my mascara it's definitely worth it.
So is it better than sex?
Well, hell no! :) But it is pretty amazing and I will be in a need of repurchasing this when it's finished.

Have you tried Better Than Sex Mascara? What's your all time favourite mascara?




  1. I've heard many a make-up artist wax lyrical about this mascara. On the wishlist! I've tried a gazillion mascaras and invariably always seem to go back to Lancome's Definicil. However, I recently tried Mary Kay's mascara and Mally's mascara. I have to say they're both fabulous. Mary Kay's mascara is about £14, so still pricey, but less than Lancome and Mally's mascara was in a kit, so I'm not sure. (Available from QVC) Thanks for the review!

    1. Thanks Cathy for commenting! I've not tried many high end mascara but this Better Than Sex one is really amazing! xx

  2. Wow, thats pretty impressive and like you I have hunted for the perfect mascara. Im off now to see if I can get it in the uk.

    1. I highly recommend giving this a go! Thanks for reading!
