Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara Review

Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23)

I received Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara as a 100 pt perk from Sephora. Even though the name is cute I was not expecting it to live up to it. Sex is in a league of its own, but I digress.


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Brush

The brush is in an hourglass shape and designed with “extra stiff bristles to maximize the performance of his carbon black collagen fueled formula.”


It’s cruelty-free and thick. Since Better Than Sex is billed as volumizing the thickness makes sense. As I used a second and third coat my lashes got some serious UMPH. Anything more than that and I think it would start to clump. I was also able to get some lengthening. My lashes don’t feel too hard, even with a third coat, and I didn’t have much trouble removing it with a make-up remover wipe.

Better Than Sex Mascara feels like it’s meant for a night out rather than an everyday mascara, but I don’t think it should be limited to that. It’s $23 so it shouldn’t languish in a drawer waiting for its big moment.


I know everyone isn’t big on splurging on mascara, but I’d buy this mascara in its full size since I’m happy with my sample. At the moment Sephora is selling a Twice The Sex Mascara Duo(online only), which consists of the full size mascara and a travel size mascara. If I decide to buy the mascara anytime soon, then I’ll jump on that to get a bit more bang for my buck.

Have you tried Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara? Did it live up to its name?

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is available at Ulta, Sephora, wherever Too Faced products are sold.

  1. Great review! I usually just buy the cheapest mascara I can find, but occasionally I’ll splurge on a good one to last me awhile. This mascara looks pretty good to me! Xx

    1. Thank you! I know exactly what you mean about going for the cheapest mascara. A lot of them get the job done but sometimes the more expensive ones are worth it too. I hope you’re able to try this one out soon. Thank you for the comment!
