Review: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara


Too Faced is one of my absolute favourite makeup brands, being completely cruelty free and with lots of vegan options! Too Faced is also the creator of one of the most highly regarded mascaras out there, the Better Than Sex Mascara.

As well as having a fabulous name, it’s everything you could want in a mascara. It’s also only £19 too, so very good value!

With over 18,000 reviews and an average of 4.5/5 stars, this is a mascara I was very excited to try. I used to swear by Benefits ‘They’re Real’ mascara, but since they test on animals I’m not going to buy it anymore. I like my lashes thick and long, but definitely not clumpy.

One of the best things about this mascara, is that you can apply up to three coats. So when I’m just heading to Uni and don’t quite want a full face on, one coat will do. Yet, if I’m heading out, 2 or 3 coats and you’ll never need falsies again!

I found the bristles on the brush to be lovely and soft, which really helped stop clumps from forming. It also means that you can get the smaller lashes in the corners and lower lash line without really layering it on too thick.

Wearability wise, it lasted all day in 80% humidity without even budging. Accidentally wiping my eyes didn’t smudge it, and it was a task to take it off at the end of the day. If you’re clumsy like me and always wipe your eyes, you’ll love it.

My biggest pet peeve with mascara is when it flakes off after a few hours, and your lashes look dry and clumpy. This however, looked fresh for hours on end, and my lashes looked full and luscious. In fact it was almost too hard to get off at the end of the day and took a bit of rubbing!

Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara is better than my Benefit by leaps and bounds. The same price, Too Faced is cruelty free, you can layer coats on, and it gives you gorgeous falsie looking lashes. I genuinely can’t fault it, and don’t see myself buying any other in the future.
