Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

Hi, dolls!

For the past 3 years, I have been using my Holy Grail mascara product which is the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. I have tested many mascaras throughout the years but I have never found one that would replace my favourite. Too Faced introduced Better Than Sex mascara in 2014 and added the waterproof version in 2016. In today's review, I will review and let you know my thoughts on both mascaras. Let's get right into the review!

This number 1 selling prestige mascara in America, has an amazing formula which thickens, lengthens, and curls after just one coat for the most dramatic and volumized lashes possible. The mascara features an hourglass brush and a collagen-enriched formula to create thick, curled lashes.

In my opinion, this is an amazing mascara. It's super black and it makes your lashes look thick and super voluminous. It takes about two to three coats for me to achieve the desired length but it does a great job for my lashes, and I have not yet found a mascara that does a better job than this one. It can get a bit clumpy if you use too much at once, so it's important to be careful while applying but it's not a big issue, as it's easy to clean off.

The waterproof version of the Better Than Sex mascara is formulated with high-performance, water-resistant polymers for sweat-proof results. This formula thickens, lengthens, and curls after just one coat for the most luscious and volumized lashes possible. It also features an hourglass brush and a collagen-enriched formula which create thick and curled lashes.

After trying the OG Better Than Sex, I decided to reach out for the waterproof version because my eyes get very teary during the day, so when it comes to my eyes I tend to reach for water proof eyeliner and mascara. I love this mascara because it makes my lashes look 10 times thicker and more voluminous as well as jet back. It lasts incredibly well throughout the whole day, and is definitely super waterproof as no matter how much you cry or go swimming, this mascara doesn't leave your lashes or smudges. This makes it sometimes a pain to remove because it's literally so super waterproof, but that's something I love about it and I don't find it too annoying to clean because during the day, it does an amazing job for me. 

Final Thoughts
In my opinion, the Better Than Sex mascara is the best mascara out there that I have ever tried. Nothing beats it for me! I prefer the waterproof version just because of my teary eyes but I find both to do the same amazing work for my lashes, leaving them super voluminous and much thicker. I can also confirm that what is shown in the gif above - taken from the Too Faced website - is true! For anyone who's looking for a good mascara and hasn't tried Better Than Sex yet, I would totally recommend checking it out. This mascara is also available in both version in a travel size, so it's a great way of testing this product out before buying a full-size.
