Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara review

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara är en omtalad liten sak, mycket tack vare det cheeky namnet. Mascaran har en timglasformad borste som ska ge fylliga separerade fransar i svartaste svart. Ju fler lager du bygger på desto flashigare ska fransarna bli. Too Faced är exklusivt för Sephora på svenska marknaden nu för tiden, så det är dit ni får pallra er om ni vill shoppa! Vi hoppas på Sephora-webshop inom en snar framtid för er som inte bor i Sthlm/Gbg/Malmö. Mascaran ligger på 230 kr.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is a rumoured little thing, much thanks to the cheeky name. This mascara has a hourglass shaped wand which is supposed to give separated plump lashes in the blackest shade of black. The more coats you apply the flashier your lashes are said to be. Check your local Sephora to shop for this gem! The mascara is $23 in the US for reference.

The wand is hourglass shaped which helps deposit a lot of product, but makes it harder to apply without smudging. The top part of the tube has a silly amount of weight to it, I don’t really understand why. The wand is heavy and the tube is lightweight! Feels weird.

A makeup tutorial where you can see the mascara in action:

So what does it do?

Length: 5/5

This mascara gives me a solid extra millimeter or two.

Volume: 5/5
Dayum, those are some fat lashes! They easily get a bit clumpy, but I like that look. For someone who wants “cleaner” looking lashes this might be a bit much.

Definition: 4/5
This mascara manages to give thick lashes aswell as, uhh you know, more than three! Look at the bottom lashes for example, they ARE thick and a bit clumped but they definitely stand out! In other words – pick another mascara if you want it to look dainty.

Precision: 2.5/5
This is the biggest drawback for this mascara. The shape of the wand, more specifically the outer blob, makes it hard to apply without smudging, especially on my lower lashes. If the wand was shaped like a christmas tree it would have been pure magic.

Effectivity: 5/5
This mascara catches on in a second, you barely have to work with the brush to get intense lashes. You can build up a couple of coats in less than a minute!

Colour: 5/5
Black as the Babadooks soul.

Water resistance: 5/5
This mascara is waterproof. It has that gummy waxy feeling on the lashes that waterproof formulas tend to have, and it doesn’t break down unless you use an oil based remover.

Longevity: 5/5
This mascara holds the curl and stays in place all day. It doesn’t flake off or soot in the lower lashline at all! The only thing I get sometimes is “sun rays” on my top lid where the lashes touch my browbone on days when I don’t have a lot of eye makeup, but that always happen to me with waterproof mascaras. They break down with oil so any concealer, foundation or such will make the lashes leave a little print on the lid. It’s easily removed with a finger though, and doesn’t affect the look/wear time of the mascara. It doesn’t happen if I wear an eye primer and/or matte eyeshadows, so it’s just a matter of priming correctly.


Conclusion: 36.5/40

Fat lashes, no excuse. This is a mascara for heavy lash days, it’s great with smokey eyes! Or just with ehh, anything, if you’re like me. I’m totally into the ragged heavy lash look as I’ve mentioned a million times so as soon as I got a little better at handling that irritating brush I just started reaching for it all. the. time. For really natutal lash days I choose something else, but this no mercy product seriously makes me happy. I will most definitely get a new one when I run out!
