Product Review: Better Than Sex Mascara

Have I caught your attention yet? Of course I have, who’s not going to be drawn to a product named Better Than Sex. That’s how I found this little gem of a product. On a trip to NY last year, I found this mascara while in Sephora, I noticed the name before I had any inkling of what it was. I picked it up and thought with a name like that the product must be good. Believe me, my first thoughts were correct.

What’s In The Bottle and What Does It Do?
  • Film-forming Polymer for smudge-proof, all day wear
  • Acacia Senegal Tree Extract to nourish, thicken and lock curl in place
  • Unique Peptides for the deepest, intense black possible
  • 1,944% more volume
  • Specially shaped hourglass brush 
  • Packed with collagen for longer, more voluminous lashes

My Thoughts on the product:

Can we start with the packaging. Better Than Sex mascara comes in a cute, pale pink, cylindrical tube. Very chic. Of course the packaging doesn’t define a product but it does look good sitting on the dresser. This product has fast become my go to mascara, with only one coat of product my lashes look much longer than they are and they look thicker. When I pulled the wand out of the tube for the first time I was a little concerned at how it would fare with the unique hourglass shape but I was pleasantly surprised. The product goes on like a dream, separating my lashes and coating them in a blacker than black formula that leaves them looking spectacular. The mascara itself stays on all day, even on my lashes, which usually play host to a mascara waterslide. Yes, it’s that good!

With two coats of mascara, my lashes look longer and fuller (do excuse the lack of makeup the rest of my face, it was late at night)

After a long day of wear, the mascara doesn’t smudge or flake and it is easy to wipe off. A concern I usually have with mascara is clumping if layering up the product. With this mascara I can put two to three layers of mascara on and have clump free lashes, they look like falsies, it is fantastic.

Two coats

The product is fairly well priced at £19 meaning it’s not a bank breaker and in all honesty the product lasts ages. I apply this almost every day and after a year it still hasn’t dried up or ran out.

Would I recommend this product?

Yes. Yes. 100% yes. If you are looking for the ultimate black mascara that is easy to apply, thickens, lengthens and leaves your lashes with the perfect curl then this is for you. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara leaves me assured that I can put it on knowing I will have long, voluminous, ultra black lashes. It definitely takes my lashes from ordinary to amazing with little effort. It is by far one of my favourite mascaras.
