The original “Better Than Sex Mascara” by Too Faced is packaged in a neat pink metal tube with the product and brand name engraved on it. The waterproof version comes in a blue metal tube with a similar brand and product design. However, the packaging has a water droplet design on the tube which makes it very original. Both products have the same sturdy wand and a long brush with thick hourglass bristles.
This product has a creamy and wet consistency.
The “Better Than Sex Mascara” doesn’t have any particular smell
We tested both, the regular and waterproof “Better Than Sex Mascaras” for a week. We noticed that both formulas give a thick and bold appearance to the lashes. The effect is almost a fake-lashes effect and is very noticeable. The mascara also makes the eyes look dewy. Because of its effect, the mascara itself is enough for a day look, and it will add edginess to night-time makeup. In fact, the “Better Than Sex Mascara” adds volume to the lashes and gives the impression that the eyes are wider than they are. However, we noticed that both the regular and the waterproof versions of this product get clumpy a few hours after use. Also, because of the wet and creamy consistency, the mascara needs to dry for a good 5 minutes or else it becomes very smudgy. At the end of the day, we noticed flakes of the mascara under our eyes. The waterproof version of the “Better Than Sex Mascara” did have longer-wear and better hold. The mascara was in fact water resistant and did not smudge when we washed our face. It was also challenging to remove with regular makeup remover. We would not recommend the “Better Than Sex Mascara” if you are looking for a natural look.
The “Better Than Sex Mascara” by Too Faced retails at an average price of $24/8mL which is comparable to other products in the same range such as Benefit Cosmetics’ “BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara.” It is, however, more expensive than Sephora’s “LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara” which sells at $12/9.8 mL.
