I really like mascaras, they are usually quick to apply but make such a difference when applied like they really open your eyes even if you just got up! And many other reasons. Why did I choose this mascara? Well everyone was talking about how amazing the too faced better than mascara was so I had to check it out.
What’s more its vegan and cruelty-free, that alone is enough for me to want to grab it.
The too faced better than sex mascara claim:
“This formula thickens, lengthens, and curls after just one coat for the most luscious, dramatic, and volumized lashes possible.”
I have to talk about the packaging and design, after all it’s the first thing you notice.
It is a nice baby pink coloured tube that is smooth and feels a little heavier than the usual mascara tubes which is cool as it feels like I’m holding something.
Right, now onto my thoughts on how this mascara works.

- Long lasting
- Helps thickens lashes
- Easily buildable
- Easily removable with makeup remover
- Started to clump a little
- Whole product dries out quick especially if not shut properly
Application and formula
Okay let’s start with the application. I found it went on quite quickly and smoothly without a fuss.
The formula did feel a little dry but this can be a good thing as your lashes won’t stick together whilst you are still applying and building your lashes.
This feature for me was pretty cool as I think I’ve experienced many joined lashes from previous formulas. At least it saved a lot of time instead of me struggling trying to separate each lash.
Thickens, lengthens and curls?
Too faced claim this particular mascara lengthens, thickens and curls with just one coat! Like seriously it sounded too good to be true to me! I know that is one of the main purpose mascaras are built for but it seemed too quick.
So you want to know what the outcome was?
Thicken– yes noticeable with one coat but even more dramatic with the second round.
Lengthen– I didn’t get the outcome I was expecting so I’d say it wasn’t too great in this area.
Curl– after using an eyelash curler my lashes did stay curled for a good amount of time so that can be ticked off.
Overall, the better than sex mascara did do a pretty good job and I feel like I’ll let the lengthening feature off as the thickening of the lashes was enough.
For the lastage testing, I had to try my best not to touch my lashes, I don’t know why I feel the need to constantly touch my face which I know isn’t really hygienic.
So minus the few touching and pulling, it got through 7 hours but after that thanks to my habits it started to clump and crumble a little.
Does it remove easily?
For me I would like a mascara to be removable near as easy as applying it is. I can’t be bothered to be scrubbing my eyes red for ages.
With the too faced mascara I wasn’t sure what to expect as it did last a decent amount of time so judging by that I was hoping it wasn’t going to be rock solid.
Luckily though all I needed was a splash of makeup remover on a pad and then a few gentle swipes and it was done.
It really was that easy but without the makeup remover that was a different story. So I definitely recommend a good makeup remover otherwise you could be standing there for a few extra minutes.
I really like the design of the too faced mascara wand, it helps coat all your lashes from the base to the tip evenly. (Thought I’ll just add that on, for all of those who care)
The side I wasn’t too keen on was the super quick drying (well it was a good thing and a bad) effected the rest of the formula in the tube.
Basically I’m not sure if I didn’t close it properly or what but I was left with a whole dry mascara. Oh and in my opinion it’s more on the pricier side but if you get what you are after then I’m sure its worth it.
So overall I found the mascara to be thickening, long-lasting, easily buildable and excellent for a dramatic look. I found it suitable for an everyday look as well as special occasions. Double useful!

I love the idea of a vegan and cruelty-free mascara and it sounds as though it met most of the stated claims. I’m not too concerned about the quick-drying, it can be great when you are applying it and makes it hard to smudge if you are in a rush (which I usually am). You also mentioned that you may not have put the lid back on well, we all have done that. I would say that it is worth a shot and will give it a try. Thanks for the great review.
Hey lily thanks for dropping by again!
I guess quick drying is an advantage if you are in a hurry, which is probably most people. Problem could be when you make a mistake you’ll have to be super quick to wipe off! Oh well you could always use a makeup remover!
Remember to put the lid back on! Lol!
Thanks for sharing this insightful article on mascara. I love the fact that it is vegan and cruelty-free. This is the best thing about this mascara that picked my attention. I am an anil=mal lover. I always buy them together with my wife
I think the quick dying feature is cool. I will definitely have a look at the vegan mascaras to surprise my wife with. I know she will love them
Yay go animal lovers! That’s sweet, shopping together!
I know right! The quick drying feature for me is the most important thing about mascara and definitely eyeliners, you don’t want it smudged everywhere as you continue with your creativity!
I have used this brand before and I love it. I find mascara to be the #1 item needed in the make up kit. You are right how mascara adds that extra and final touch to any look. Just love your website. It is great that a product like this is used all around the globe.
It’s a awesome mascara! Isn’t it cool how we can all connect over something so small even if we are on the other side of the world!
Well, you know, I don’t have much experience with make up products, but I do know of a couple of people that play around with mascara and colors and such.
As a matter of fact, when we had a wedding, my wife got her make-up done by a professional, and the person used mascara. I think…
In any event, that’s how good I am with it, but I will most definately SHARE your page with that person, and others so they too can know about Too Faced and Mascara and your review.
Hey Dear friend, I appreciate that you provided a complete overview of the mascara (Too faced mascara). I was searching for a high-quality mascara and you described about Too Faced Better than mascara, such a great chance that I found your post. Surely I’ll add it to my list. As soon as possible I buy one. I’ll recommend it to my friends too. thanks for sharing.
Thanks a lot for the nice comment and glad you enjoyed this post!
Have a great day!
I am always on the hunt for a great mascara, I love that this one is vegan and cruelty-free, something that is very important to me! The first thing I noticed when I saw this mascara in the store was the cute packaging, it really stood out, but before I decided to buy it, I had to check the reviews on it. I appreciate your honest review of it, and it sounds like it does a good job of thickening the lashes, which is what I’m after, the lengthening part is not too concerning for me, as I have fairly long lashes. I will give this one a try.
