Drugstore and Prestige Lipstick Swatches On Dark Skin

I have grand plans. Plans that involve lipstick and photos and me wearing those lipsticks in said photos. I’m not sure how it’s all going to shake out. Some say the hardest part of doing something is taking the first step. That makes sense. Many talk themselves out of doing something before the first move is made. Now I just have to keep going.

Pass the lip balm and these lip patches. Continue reading Swatches, Swatches, Swatches: The Beginning

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.

THE 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.”

THE 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.

WOULD I BUY IT?

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.
