A week or so ago I took my sister to one of our local Debenhams so that she could pick out a late birthday present that I owed her which she did (the Urban Decay Naked Palette 3 for anyone who is wondering) and I managed to pick my self up the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Now I definitely didn't go into Debenhams with the purpose of buying myself anything but the fact that the Scunthorpe store stocked it was a good enough reason to pick it up. Along with the fact that the lady at the Urban Decay Counter (nicest/most helpful beauty/makeup assistant I have met..so far) told me that if you spent over £50 pounds you got £10 off. So I was like hell yeah i'm treating myself plus it's another makeup product off my wish list.
Now that my boring story of why I bought it is over with onto the a bit about the product it's self. Let's start with the name. I personally think it's a bit of fun so i'm a fan. Anyway moving on to what it's all about. Basically the cardboard packaging of this mascara claims that from a consumer study 100% saw dramatic volume and longer lashes. Whilst 93% saw a base to tip curl and 90% saw a dramatic look with one coat. Lastly 1,944% more volume... All in all Pretty good odds to me!
Enough about the claims now onto the brush and the packaging. When I first took the mascara out of the cardboard packaging I thought man this is heavy but not like heavy heavy, just compared to the other mascaras i've been using lately. Anyway out came the gorgeous baby pink metallic packaging which has imprinted text on it. Personally love the packaging it's so pretty. As for the brush its an hour glass shape which I don't actually have another mascara brush this shape, so don't know if its a unique thing or not.
Now onto the results! I definitely found volume, length and added curl! I found that it definitely gives an intense volume which I personally think would be great for nights out but a bit too much for my everyday wear. I also found that this mascara is a tad wet and I ended up with a couple of black dots but this may not be the case in a few weeks if this mascara dries out. Lastly I found that one application is enough for me personally, any more than that began to clump up the lashes.
Overall, I like the mascara very much but I don't love it. I personally prefer the results my Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara gives me. Which I also found the effect to last longer than this one did. So the likelihood of me buying this mascara isn't high at the moment, but who knows I may fall in love with this in a couple of weeks. If you are looking for an intense volume look to your lashes then this is definitely one I would recommend.
What do you guys think?
see you soon, han xo
