Better Than Sex Lashes | The Review

Before and After without Curling

When it comes to my eyelashes I want big and voluminous with a curl. I go for glamorous bombshell lashes even on a daily basis. I just can’t do natural. Maybe I have a complex from growing up with feathery blonde lashes that stuck straight out? Who knows.

Even though I love to try out different mascaras, I have never found one that gave me the lashes I was looking for until I came across Too Faced’s Better than Sex mascara. The packaging is what first caught my eye with it’s gorgeous rose gold tube but the formula is what made me fall in love. It is infused with collagen and has a film-forming polymer for smudge-proof all day wear and unique peptides for the deepest intense black possible. It coats the lashes and makes them appear thicker, longer and more defined. The hourglass shaped brush helps create incredible volume and the stiff wire bristles separate the lashes beautifully. With two coats I get the dramatic false lash look that I love and the drier formula holds a curl really well even though it isn’t waterproof. 

Of course, with all the good comes a little bit of disappointment. Unfortunately, I find it can get a bit clumpy if you use too much and the brush while fantastic is a bit too thick on the ends. It can be really difficult to get into the corners and grab the small lashes so i need to use another mascara for that. 

Overall, Better Than Sex has become my absolute favourite mascara and once my collection of samples run out I’ll be grabbing a full size. 

You can buy Better Than Sex from Sephora for $30 and from the Too Faced site for $23. 

What’s your HG mascara? What suggestions do you have?

    I like the Clinique High Definition one, it's is good volume and length wise. I also used to like the Lancome Flextencils but haven't used it in years though.

      I would really like to try the Clinique High Definition and the new Feather effect one!
