The Better than Sex Mascara by Too Faced is by far the best mascara I have ever laid my hands on! I will have to grab as many as I can get my hands on! *Makes grubby fingers”. So is this most raved about product better than sex? How bout I let you decide… This mascara is built around the idea of getting full-blown Bambi lash volume. It is intensely black mascara with an hourglass shaped brush that gives you the maximum volume while separating each lash in the process. The hourglass shaped brush is suppose to be inspired by a women’s curves designed with stiff bristles to boost the performance, if you know what I mean. 😉 One or two coats add noticeable length and volume, add a few extra coats and you’ll have yourself Bambi lashes on fleek for sure! It is waterproof resistant and this bad boy won’t budge at all once its dry. Still, it does take a few minutes for it to dry properly but who’s complaining if it’s supposed to be better than sex right?

The name alone screams Holy Grail product, but can we talk about how cute the packaging is. The light pink packaging is cute and appealing. The steel pink tube with the stamped and engraved typography is nicely done. The package goes with the name, that’s for sure! Although it is quite pricey, do you really want to put a price on something that will take you to lengths you couldn’t imagine? See what I did there. 😉 But really, you know how they say the best things are made overtime? It took Too Faced two years to perfect this product, so you best believe they are delivering! So really who needs false lashes when you have Better Than Sex? Really guys, go get yours now and thank me later!

– Until Next time! Xx

Step 1: You apply the colour to your lips and keep the lips apart for 60 seconds to let the colour set. Step 2: You apply the top coat on to lock the colour and give it moisture to your lips.

So is this product a HIT or MISS?
The packaging is really cute and it has a doe foot sponge applicator on both the ends. The product itself is runny rather than a thick consistency, so be careful. The lip colours don’t have any specific scent to them. I applied two layers of the product just to make it more pigmented, but the pigment is good overall. After applying the lip colour doing both steps, my lips weren’t dry and it went on and felt smooth on my lips. The product doesn’t make your lips feel tight and you can layer it without making your application look too thick. I tested it to see if the product would transfer but it stayed on without any transfer right after I applied it. After going about my day, several hours passing it did not smudge and the lip colour was still on my lips and did not make my lips feel dry. I didn’t have to touch up my lip colour through out the day and took it off at the end of the day with an oil based make up remover. All in all, I believe the product did what it was suppose to do and it lasted throughout the entire day. My favourite shades are Dare to Pink, Pucker Up, Play with fire and Heart Breaker.
This lip product is definitely a HIT ladies! If your looking for a drug store brand lippy that lasts all day, this would be it!

Enjoy! xx
