Review: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Before I gush about how much I love Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, I just have to say I hate the name.  While I’m no way a prude, I find the “Better Than Sex” title kind of sexist and silly; would ANYONE compare sex to mascara? OK, off my soap box! Let’s talk mazzie.
Too-Faced-Better-Than-Sex-Mascara-Fall-2013With soft, feathery bristles, the hourglass shaped brush holds a ton of product.  With one coat, my lashes are saturated from root to tip with this creamy black formula.  Despite the length and softness of bristles, (which can sometimes be messy/imprecise) my lashes are dense right down to the base of my lashes are fully tapered at the tips.
The formula is so lush that you have to go a little easy with the second coat; my lashes got a little clumpy and squared up but there was such beautiful volume and length that I didn’t mind needing to brush through with a dry spoolie.  My lashes were still gorgeous at midday but for the sake of science I tried to apply a touch-up coat: good at the roots, too much at the tips. At the end of the evening, I washed my face with soap and water and and despite the suds looking a bit dark and messy, the mazzie came completely off with some gentle massaging.
My final verdict: ignore the name, buy this amazing mascara!!!
