Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme Review

I was a big fan of the original Too Faced Better Than False Lashes mascara even though many of you were not.

It was definitely tricky to work with. The big problem with it was the stickiness. Many of you said that your top and bottom lashes would stick together. But, the stickiness is what made it stretch, pulling the nylon fibers to ridiculous lengths. You also said that your lashes looked fuzzy and would easily clump. Yes, but again, it was tricky to work with and a bit time consuming to get it to look good.

So, Too Faced says they improved the formula, brush and fibers. They added the word Extreme to their Too Faced Better Than False Lashes.

They claim the new formula is fast drying and is not sticky. Let's give it a go!

The application process is the same as it was. 


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. 


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 to the mascara. Do a nice even layer.

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.

Well, the new formula is certainly different. It is not sticky and does dry faster. It is also easier to remove. It's waaaay easier to work with. The brush is not dramatically different for me. Also, the fibers are not dramatically different for me although, they do seem to blend into the mascara easier. 


The problem for me is the mascara doesn't stretch and create the ridiculous lashes it used to. Sometimes I would actually pull off extra long fibers because they were so crazy long. I can't achieve that with this mascara. I'm quite disappointed with it. 

The other thing the old formula did for me was it stayed really black all day. I have trouble with mascaras fading as the day goes on. It's weird. Does anyone else have that problem?  


Better than False lashes is like any other mascara to me now. I would like them to bring back the old formula! There is no other mascara, that I have found, like it. Call me crazy, I like a sticky challenging mascara that creates long lashes!


Don't get me wrong. The new formula is a nice mascara and I have read many good reviews. If you didn't like the old formula, you will probably like the new formula. Also, if you never used a fiber lash extension system, you will probably like Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme.

Only the new extreme formula is available in stores and on amazon. 

You can also try Cherry Blooms Fiber Eyelash Extensions. I find they work well and I like the black fibers. Then, there is Mia Adora 3D Fiber Mascara with it's green tea micro lash extensions. I haven't tried the Mia Adora yet. It's a great price and I like the green tea idea!


As always, I will keep trying more mascaras searching for that perfect one!
