Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: Is it a good mascara?

Does Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara live up to it's name? Too Faced claims Better Than Sex Mascara is their #1 Selling Prestige Mascara and it's their best mascara. I love you Too Faced, but if this is your best mascara, I would hate to see your worst!!! I'll show you a picture of why it's not one of my favorites. 


I used Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara on one of my prom clients recently.

She actually brought her mascara with her to use. I have to say, it made her lashes look dark and long although, not quite as smooth as I like lashes to look.

I decided I should try it on myself so I picked up a tube.
The mascara packaging is beautiful! The mascara tube is a lovely color and has sturdy weight to it.

The brush is an hourglass shape designed to separate, coat and curl the lashes. The mascara is carbon black and is supposed to give dark, thick, long lashes with just one coat. Add more coats for more drama.

My Review:
Did it make really dark lashes?
Yes, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara did make my lashes nice and dark. They stayed dark all day without fading.

Does it separate the lashes?
No. I found the lashes would stick together. 

Did it make the lashes thicker?
The lashes were definitely thicker. They were a bit too thick, spidery and stuck together with some clumping after applying 2 coats, though. 

Did it make the lashes longer?
My lashes did look longer but I found this mascara added more volume than length.

Did it add curl?
Not so much on it's own. I like to curl my straight lashes before applying mascara. Some mascaras keep the lashes curled better than others. My lashes stayed fairly well curled with this mascara. 

Did it look good with one coat?
Yes. It did look good with one coat. I am a 2 or 3 coat kind of girl for more lash drama.

Was it smudge-proof, all day wear?
The big problem for me with this mascara was how it wore throughout the day. I applied 2 coats to the top lashes and one coat to the bottom lashes.

This mascara failed me!!! The dreaded flakes!!! Plus, it just didn't look pretty anymore at the end of the day. The lashes seemed more stuck together and spiky looking.

This happened every time I wore it. Some days it was worse than others, so for me, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara does not live up to it's name! Unfortunately, I will not use it again and do not recommend it. I have read many rave reviews, though. I have also read reviews where others had the same flaking problem as me. It may not flake for you. I don't know if it flaked on my client. I assume it doesn't flake on her since she brought it in to be used on herself. 

I do recommend the Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, however. That was great for me!!!
