Too Faced | Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara £18

When it comes to mascaras I’m super naughty and I don’t actually replace it as often as I should and I’m pretty sure I’ve been using a mascara that’s well past it’s due date recently but I’m just too scared to buy a new one that I might not like and let’s face it a good mascara is never cheap! That’s why I’m super happy there’s such a thing as minis so I can get to try out a mascara without breaking the bank (well by too much anyway,) but I can never seem to find the minis online only ever in some stores which is annoying but I do recommend if you ever go to a Sephora to pick up all of the minis!

I did pick up this Too Faced Better Than Sex mini in Sephora so I only know that it was €10 and me big me thought that was a well good bargain and threw it in my basket, I’ve been wanting to try this mascara out for the longest time now but I’ve never tried it just because I couldn’t bring myself to spend £18 on the full sized one. I do love how cute a mini is too because it’s so much easier to carry around with you!

The packing is the same as the full sized being a pale metallic pink which is beautiful and one of my favourite colours but with the name all the people I’ve talked to about it is very confused because lets face it ‘better than sex‘ isn’t for the prude people of the world! The brush has loads of little bristles which for the life of me I can’t remember the term but they’re not the plastic ones which I know some people prefer but I hate the plastic ones so as soon as I saw this brush came with these I was like SCORE! With it being a mini I do find it a bit awkward to apply to my lower lashes but I am a awkward person so that could just be me because applying it to my top lashes are super easy.

This has become my favourite mascara with the fact it makes my eyelashes look amazing and not like a spider which is a massive no no when it comes to makeup. It is a pretty wet formula but it’s easy to use and makes your eyelashes a lot more full and I can say this because my one eye has very sparse and basically no eyelashes but with this mascara it’s like helloooooo I actually have eyelashes, I’ve worn this as a base and a top coat with falsies and just on it’s own and I love it for both but as I said it is a pretty wet formula which can cause smudging throughout the day which is my own fault!

Overall I am definitely repurchasing the full sized one when this mini has dried out!

Have you tried anything from Too Faced before?

    I absolutely love this mascara and actually prefer the smaller tubes because I feel like the formula doesn't dry out as quickly.

    I've heard such great things about this mascara but never quite been able to take the plunge to try it! I think you've convinced me to try a mini too! 🙂

    I’m not a major fan of mascara (been stabbed in the eye far too many times now) but I have always loved the way it looks on people. May need to conquer my fear and dive in. Really want to try Too Faced as well. xx

    I’ve heard mixed reviews about this mascara so I’m still not sure whether or not I should try it. Maybe I’ll try a mini size though!
