Better than Sex? Mascara by Too Faced


I know i'm pretty late to the 'Too Faced' hype but my excuse is student loans and life style never gave me the option to be a little more spendy on my make-up purchases. I picked up this mascara, like my new Nars foundation, before I went to Lisbon at the beginning of the month. It'd been on my wish list for so long because it was so fondly talked about in the blogging community for quite a while and then none other than my BFF fave, Taylor Swift likes it too.

I'm not going to lie, I was a little disappointed at first. It made my lashes long but pretty clumpy and resembling spiders legs. I'm not really one for that look. But certain mascara's have better ways of application, my drugstore favourite Rimmel foundation applies best with a bit of a wiggle. This one needs slow, steady flicks. It took me a while to realise that but since I have, I love it. It adds lots of thickness and length to your lashes and what's great is you can just keep adding layers and it keeps getting more long and voluminous. It's a pretty good rival for Urban Decays 'Perversion' actually which is a two step wonder, 'Better than Sex' you can get the same results in one step.

It lasts, i'd say 10 hours ish. I measure my makeup by how well it stays on at work. I have a job where it's quite hot and sticky where i'm running around a lot, so for a product to last through all that, then it's pretty great!

For £19 it's not the most expensive mascara but it's definitely not the cheapest either, it's definitely worth the extra pennies though. I've just got my fingers crossed it lasts a bit longer than the Urban Decay one which dries out so fast.

Better than sex though? Probably not but pretty damn good that's for sure. My new favourite.

Love always,
Melissa
