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.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara at 6pm:
too faced better than sex mascara flakes
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!!!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
