Too faced “Better than sex” mascara

Hello everyone! I need a mascara that will lengthen my lashes. They are very short and light. I have never found a perfect mascara. I was thinking of testing "Too faced Better than sex". Please help. Which one would you recommend?

RE: Too faced “Better than sex” mascara

i didn’t really like the better than sex mascara, it dried out fast and was just clumpy without adding any length. i recommend the buxom lash volumizing mascara or benefit roller lash. the buxom doesn’t dry out, adds volume and length, and i haven’t had any problem with smudging! the roller lash is really good for length but not so much volume, and the formula is very wet. i would recommend trying it for yourself but when i use it i have to top it with a waterproof mascara or the buxom one because if i don’t, i will smudge underneath my eyes within an hour or two. but it does make my lashes very long!! my all time favorite is definitely the buxom, i would give it a shot.

I found that the #Better Than Sex mascara clumped way too much for my liking. I'm not the biggest fan of giant applicators either, but there was so much hype in reviews that I decided to give it a try. My current holy grail mascara is in the same price-point (#Liquid Lash Extensions by Thrive Causemetics).

I am not a fan of the too faced mascara! I have tried it countless of times and it dries out way too quick and I also find it tends to get clumpy ! I highly recommend drug store mascaras as they are less expensive and your mascara should be replaced 3 months anyways ! If you want a higher end mascara though I like the 3D Mac one! I feel like it is the best ! Good luck !!

If you want length, try Benefit Roller Lash or the $5 Essence Lash Princess in the black and green tube. With short lashes, you may have issues with clumping so I'd avoid Better Than Sex, which has a wet, heavier formula. I'd also suggest picking up some disposable mascara wands from a beauty supply store like Sally's or on Amazon, where they're around $5 for 200. They're a lifesaver to comb out wet, clumpy mascara and they help to give a fluttery, separated look.

Girl i better get the benefit badgal or roller lash mascara. That's much better for me i think, too faced mascara just give me volume that's it! it's not even waterproof.

Hi @juliasweet ! To make my short droopy lashes curl up (without a lash curler, which I refuse to use) and look longer and thicker: 

 

I can't use Too Faced Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara Limited Edition Diamonds - 0.27 oz/ 8 mL because it irritates the heck out of my eyes after a couple of hours. Same goes for at least 95% of mascaras on the market.

I love Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme in Extreme Black. I also just bought Marc Jacobs Beauty At Lash'D Lengthening and Curling Mascara. Both thicken and lengthen.

Hi Juliasweet, when I first bought Better Than Sex Mascara, I loved it. Then, after about a month of using it everyday, it didn't perform the same way. My lashes weren't as thick or long. Perhaps, the mascara dried out a bit. But a mascara should last longer than a month. I know several ladies that like it. I received it as a sample, loved it. Purchased a full size and didn't repurchase.

Hi @juliasweet!

 

My favorite ones are Too Faced Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara Standard Size Black - 0.27 oz/ 8 mL and Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara Black

 

When you swipe the wand up your lashes and get to the tip, hold the wand there for about 5 seconds before letting go.  That helps keep your lashes curled longer.  I learned this from tip from an Estee Lauder makeup masterclass.

 

I have short lashes myself so I actually prefer to use falsies like the ones from the Sephora Collection!
