Too Faced Better Than False Lashes: How to Apply


I have been using Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System. I really love it. It does much more than a regular mascara and it kind of does resemble false lashes. I read a lot of reviews about it. People seem to love it or hate it. I can see why people would hate it. It isn't a mascara you can quickly apply and go. It takes some time to work with. I like it because it really does makes my lashes look longer. I have found it is best to do one eye at a time. Do the top lashes only. The mascara is very sticky and takes some time to dry. When you apply it to the top and bottom lashes, they stick together easily. It's quite annoying. Use a regular mascara on the bottom. Start by curling your lashes.



Step 1: Apply a coat of Activating Mascara Base and Top Coat to the top lashes. Apply a nice even coat. Be fairly generous with it. Try to keep the lashes as separated as possible during application. Also, direct the lashes carefully where you want them to be. The mascara is very sticky so lashes can stick together easily. Don't wiggle the wand.





Step 2: Apply the nylon lash fibers. They are white fibers. Apply them from mid lash to the lash tips, concentrating on the tips. The fibers stick easily to the mascara. Do a nice even layer.  Again, don't wiggle the wand. Don't over do it either or it will be hard to hide all the fibers and your lashes can look fuzzy. 
Step 3: Apply another coat of the Activating Mascara Base and Top Coat. Take your time and keep this layer on the thin side. Coat the fibers and work them out to the ends of your lashes. You have got to work with it to seal the fibers so the lashes don't look fuzzy. Don't wiggle the wand. Pull the wand from the base of your lashes to the tip. The fibers will stretch out with the mascara wand. I sometimes use the tip of the mascara wand to really seal in and pull the fibers on a particular lash. Sometimes I get a ridiculously long one that a need to pull off. 

Step 4: This is my own step. I like to add a coat of a regular lengthen mascara on top. My favorite inexpensive brand is Wet n Wild Mega Lengths. The regular mascara continues to seal the fibers while keeping the lashes from looking clumpy. It also help stop the stickiness. 


I sometimes use a lash comb or dry mascara spooly to separate lashes that have stuck together too much.  I have to be careful not to pull off the extension, though.

That's it. They tell you can repeat steps 2 & 3. I don't. The lashes start to clump and get that thick spidery look. 

The mascara is water resistant but not waterproof. It comes off with "soap and water". It can make a smeary mess though. I like to wet my face in the shower. Then, I use my thumb and index finger to gently work the mascara off. Use an eye makeup remover to remove the rest.

Another thing I find is the warm air from a blow dryer while drying your hair softens the lashes and makes them sticky again. Do your hair styling before you apply.

Find it at Ulta, Sephora and toofaced.com for $35.00.
