The holy grail of all mascaras...

It's not often that I fall in super love with a product, but once I discovered the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for the first time, there was no going back! Originally I purchased the product to try, didn't love it and left it sitting in my makeup bag for a little while. A couple of months later, I pulled it out again to discover that the product had settled and dried down, and the things it did to my lashes were amazing!




My lashes are naturally short and straight, and I always have trouble finding a mascara that can curl and lengthen them without becoming clumpy. My bottom lashes are super sparse and short. 
Better Than Sex (BTS) has quite a large, hourglass shaped brush, and the bristles are quite flexible. They seem to cling to my lashes and coat them so well in the formula, and the hourglass shape adds a bit of curl and flex to my straight lashes. Formula-wise, I've never had to deal with flaking but occasionally there is a little smudging underneath my eye. You can see in the before and after picture above that BTS has the effect of really opening up and lifting my eye, and it's super for early mornings (please excuse my double-fold eyelid).

When brand new, I find the formula a lot more wet but as it ages it seems to settle into a more workable formula. It can be a little clumpy at first but usually only takes a week or two to dry down.

The packaging of this product is ultra heavy and sturdy; very luxe-feeling. It's not a cheap mascara, but not terribly expensive either. I like the in-between price and the way it delivers on its promise of full, separated and curled lashes. This amazing mascara retails for $36 at Mecca, and I promise, it's worth it! I've since re-stocked about 3 times and no signs of losing this baby from my collection.

Have you tried this Too Faced mascara? Would love to hear your thoughts!
