Day 9: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I would be totally lying if I said that I didn't chuckle a little bit when I read the packaging for the fairly new Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I had the same reaction when I first purchased NARS Orgasm blush years ago (real mature, huh?). It's fun, naughty, a tab bit silly, and (of course) over-the-top (it claims people in a clinical study saw 1,944% more volume)! I was sold.
The morning I used it, I was excited since I'm a big Too Faced fan. Better Than Sex, huh? Pretty bold statement for a mascara. For the record, I purchased this with every intention that it would be the best mascara I've ever used. I am so sad to report that it was not. My first reaction (from the first coat) was that it made my lashes look like I was wearing falsies, which I loved. But, as I applied the second and third coat, I felt like the formula started to clump. Not to mention, the tube is super heavy. Perhaps the tube had to be made large to support the hourglass-shaped wand? The hourglass-shaped wand ratio is supposed to help seperate lashes. I didn't feel it did a great job seperating mine. Because the tube is large, it has a big mouth opening, I found this caused a ton of product to build-up on the rim of the mouth (wasting precious product is a no-no). Also, the mascara flaked as the day wore on which really bothered me since this is a $23 mascara. It did hold curl really well, lengthened great, and I thought the volume was noticeable. Since this mascara it so new, I'm thinking that Too Faced will work out some of the issue with the tube? I will definitely give this mascara another try down the road after all the kinks are fixed.
