Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Erm...

too faced better than sex mascara

I really like Too Faced. Heck, I'm giving away one of their kick-ass palettes in my blog birthday giveaway (Enter here wink-wink*). They're good people. So when I started looking for a good cruelty-free mascara I decided to try their famous and ever so subtly titled Better Than Sex mascara. I had heard a lot of rumblings about this stuff being pretty great and I had high hopes for loving it. (spoiler, I really don't).

Let me first say that I usually only write bad reviews when I'm truly disappointed. If a product wasn't great, but I'm indifferent to it, I usually don't care to rail on it. However, this is one of those really disappointed times and I'm very sad about that. So here is the story of why I dislike this mascara...

Sunday, two weeks ago, I had just bought this and decided to give it a try. I curled my lashes and popped it on. And it looked good. It didn't hold a curl as much as I would of liked, but it did add a nice bit of volume so I was pretty happy. I did notice that the formula was very dry though and quite clumpy. I usually like a drier mascara so I didn't really give it a second thought.

Then I went out to brunch, had some pancakes, coffee and an hour later I returned home. I looked in the mirror and had some serious panda eyes. The mascara had crumbled and smudged all down my face. It looked so awful. But I remembered I didn't set my concealer with powder so maybe that broke it down. I gave it a pass and decided to give it another try the day after.

The next day I powdered, my concealer was set, I applied this mascara again, set out on my day and whaddayaknow the same thing happened. So much panda eyes! Not only was it under my eyes, but it also was on my top lid. It was flaking and crumbling everywhere. Cue serious disappointment.

After this, I was done. It just wasn't working for me. I still love Too Faced, but this mascara was a bit of a fail. I don't like the name and I don't like the formula. At least the packaging is gorgeous, right???

I'm curious, has anyone tried this mascara and had different results? Is it just me?
