Why We Love Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is one of the most popular, best-selling mascaras on the market. It’s a favourite among beauty bloggers and YouTubers, and for good reason: it gives lashes a dramatic curl and voluminous look that’s actually quite natural-looking. The formula is easy to apply, clump-free and stays put all day.
What is the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara?
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara formula is an incredible fix for lazy girls everywhere. (I mean, we spend more time filling our skincare routines than we do on our mascara brushes. There’s definitely room for improvement there.) This mascara’s soft wand builds length and volume using botanical ingredients—naturally derived black and white root pigments that react to heat to form a rich dark brown mascara-like formula. You apply it to the lashes with a finger. The brush is also responsible for what makes it an all-in-one mascara: a dramatic lash-curling wand that applies a multi-level coat. Use it to define and define your lashes in a dramatic wispy curl or volumized full volume—the better to catch the light!
How does it work?
The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is a two-in-one product — you get a black liquid mascara and a volumizer. For a few seconds, after you swipe on the volumizer, you’ll get big, voluminous lashes. The Better Than Sex mascara is to give your lashes some lift and definition and create that perfect, dark-black liner look.
When should you use it?
The Better Than Sex mascara gives you the definition you need, while the volumizer gives you a dramatic curl and brush your lashes. Use a slightly wet, clean eyelash curler to apply the volumizer to the top and bottoms of each lash first. Then, using a pointed applicator brush, gently coat each top lash with the mascara, concentrating on the lashes right in front of the curler. We recommend you don’t grab and pull the brush at all, or you’ll make your mascara break.
How long does it last?
The Better Than Sex mascara tube claims to hold its shape for 40 hours and it really does. It really does last for long. I don’t even want to estimate how many times I’ve used it. It’s definitely gone through six or seven tubes, but it’s holding up incredibly well.
I know that there are a ton of really good mascaras out there, so I decided to reach out to my friends on Twitter and ask them for their recommendations. When you’re trying to calculate whether or not it’s worth spending money on a product or service, you need to first decide if it’s for the short term or the long term. If it’s for the short term, then it’s not worth the money. Better Than Sex mascara can last anywhere from 4 to 12 months, depending on how often you use it and how well you take care of it. It’s important to store the mascara in a cool, dry place. If you leave it in the sun, it won’t last as long.
There are lots of other mascaras on the market that are pretty similar to Better Than Sex, so if you’re not a fan, try one of these options. If you’re looking for a mascara that gives you length and volume, try the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. You have to decide what’s most important to you. There are so many different ways to build your personal brand, and you should pick the ones that will work best for you. And don’t forget that your personal brand is just that: personal. The typical length of time that a mascara will last is three to four months. After that, bacteria can start to grow in the mascara tube. So you should change your mascara out about every three to four months.
What’s the best part?
I really like how it curls my lashes in the first place. It gives them a little more volume than the average mascara and it adds length too. Love love love it!
What do we not like about it?
I feel like I don’t need extra volume in my lashes, so a lot of the mascara that’s too big for my lashes makes me look like I’m wearing false lashes, which I’m not. If I try to apply mascara that’s too big, it’s this wide, taffy-like mess on my lashes. So I kind of like Better Than Sex for how it gives me full, long, open-eyed lashes that are not fake.
Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara is budget-friendly (the price starts at only $21). Since it’s widely considered to be one of the best mascaras, the price tag is to be expected. It’s important to keep in mind that this is just one of many products in the Too Faced mascara family. The brand has a wide selection of makeup, skincare, and even accessories.

Is it worth the price?
The best way to answer this question is to ask yourself what you want to get out of it. If you’re not a fan of social media, you may not enjoy all the time you’ll have to spend on Twitter and Instagram. The Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced lasts all day but I think it’s the consistency of the formula that makes it last so long. It doesn’t clump or flake and it’s not drying at all and it only takes one coat to get a lot of volume.
It depends on how thick and full you like your lashes to look. If you apply one full coat, it will hold a curl all day, but if you apply two or more coats, it will hold a curl for about two to three hours.
High-end mascaras are fantastic, but a lot of people think they’re just too expensive. If you’re looking for a good alternative, try using a volumizing mascara with a lengthening formula. It’s worth the money if you can afford to spend it on yourself. If you can, I highly recommend making the investment in your education. It’s worth the money if you can afford it because you’re investing in the future of your career, your business, and your life.
The Better Than Sex mascara has a 24-hour lifespan and can last all day and night, provided you don’t sleep in it. Once the mascara has set in place, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting raccoon eyes.
There are a few alternatives to the Better Than Sex mascara — the first one being the YSL Babydoll mascara. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this mascara and I’m definitely going to try it out.
There are a number of other mascaras on the market that are equally as good as the Better Than Sex mascara, but for different reasons. The Chanel Inimitable mascara is great if you’re looking for a mascara that’s easy to remove at the end of the day. It’s really important to think about what you want from blogging. If you’re just starting out and you’re blogging to practice your writing skills, then chances are it’s not worth investing a lot of money in. When you put the mascara on, it should last for 4-6 months.
The Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced is a cult classic, but it’s not for everyone. If you’re looking for a mascara that is similar to Too Faced’s, try the Roller Lash mascara from Benefit. It’s important to know the difference between being cheap and being frugal. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it’s good.
Other cheap alternatives are the L'Oreal Paris Starry Eyes mascara and the Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara.
The Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced is definitely one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried, but it’s a little on the pricey side and it’s not always easy to find. In the startup world, every cent counts and it’s important to make sure that you’re spending money wisely. The Better Than Sex mascara will last through rain, sweat, and tears but it will eventually wear off, as all mascaras do. You may experience a bit of smudging, especially if you’re in humid climates, but the formula is waterproof and will not run down your face.
