Review: The Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara

by Roxanne C.


Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara

Is it true?


I’m going to confess: I think that sex is overrated. If you ask any girl what the most amazing thing in the world is, and she answers sex, then that girl most probably hasn’t experienced much emotion in life, and thus my deep-felt condolences to her. Any well-travelled explorer will tell you the same thing. Or at least, I hope.


In any case, I’m pretty sure no parent would want their 15-year-old daughters going around having their heads filled with notions about fornication and what nots. But that’s exactly what’s going to happen when these innocent minds chance upon the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. Sooner than you think, they’d be wondering what sex is all about. That said, I’m not sure anyone’s lashes go crazy after a bout of hardcore humping.


While I’m less than impressed with the name of this product, I do like the sleek metallic pink packaging and dense, hourglass-shaped brush. It’s an inky mascara that does deliver a good lengthening effect and doesn’t come with any scent.

While I wish this product had a better name, I like its brush that separates, coats and slightly curls lashes.

A before-and-after comparison.


This mascara does a decent job of lengthening – more so than volumising – and giving definition to the eyes, but I didn’t observe anything “dramatic.” It doesn’t clump and can’t hold curls up, so you’ll have to curl your lashes again after it dries. Washing it off comes pretty easily with warm water, seeing that it isn’t a waterproof mascara. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ll recommend this mascara, if only because of the name. I really don’t see the need to relate it to sex, nor for the comparison that it is better, which makes absolutely no sense to me.
