Comments about Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara:

I really like this stuff but it must not like me. It flakes and get smudgy but the end of the work day. So I have found that if I use Ulta's waterproof Mascara over it that normally makes it not flake or smudge. I do have oily lids so maybe that has something to do with it. Also I noticed it will flake less when I wear my glasses. I like it but I need to take some precautions when using it.

                  Comments about Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara:

                  I was really disappointed in this mascara. Everyone raved about it and I had never bought a prestige brand of mascara, only drug store, so I was really excited. When I put it on it was a very wet consistency and it made my lashes all stick together. I didn't find the brush to be anything special either. I like to add 3 coats to my lashes and by the 3rd coat with this mascara they were all stuck together and I had to spend 20 minutes messing with them to look decent. I returned it and got a drug store mascara and LOVE it! It builds easily and isn't too wet of a formula. I've gotten tons of comments on my eyes since I've been wearing the drug store mascara. I just don't think it's worth the money at all.

                    I was really excited when I bought this mascara because of all great things said about it. Unfortunately, for me, it did not live up to the hype. While it did apply nicely and gave me length and volume, it did not curl or even hold the curl of my lashes. Also, it smudged after about 2 hours of wear. I will, with great sadness, be returning this mascara.

                    This mascara is good for day with one coat and for night with 2-3 coats. No need for falsies. Only thing the long length can leave smudges on upper brow area.

                    When I tried this on I knew I had to have it. One coat looks awesome but if you put 2 or 3 coats on its better than false lashes. It may seem a little pricey but totally worth it.

                            Too Faced formulates all of their products to meet strict safety standards; however, if you have a concern about a particular ingredient or formula, it is always best to consult your physician. Better Than Sex Mascara features a smudge-proof formula that is very long lasting.

                        • Q:

                          Does the "Better Than Sex" have more volume when applying it? Most mascara products say they do, but some really don't. So I would usually have to test them before buying the product. Is it really worth to buy for $23.00? I'm in need for a mascara that'll give me great volume that'll lift my lashes more without having to curl my lashes everyday.
