TOO FACED BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA DOES IT COMPARE WITH L'OREAL LASH PARADISE?

Another one of those cult items that people rave about; The Better Than Sex Mascara. I got my hands on a travel size one and always have been interested in the claims that it says: 100% dramatic volume, 100% longer lashes and 90% on achieving a dramatic look with one coat.

Packaging wise it is very pretty, a beautiful pink colour. The applicator has an hourglass shape. There is a stopper inside to avoid getting too much product onto the wand and has a standard mascara smell not that you can smell it on your eyelashes. It also claims to be smudge proof and last all day.


Performance wise, I wasn't really wowed by this. It looked natural to me as it doesn't perform better than Lash Paradise, it did separate my lashes very well and did make them a longer in a cleaner and more defined way but it flaked on me throughout the day. I was wiping away black little dots on my top cheek area.  The hourglass shape actually makes it difficult to get into my inner and outer corners so it's not great for people who have smaller eyes.

I found that it was really easy to remove with my cleansing oil, didn't irritate my eyes. Do I think it is a cult item? No. My L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara performs the same or even better than this and I heard it's a dupe. Now that I've tried this out this out LP beats BTS in terms, of volume and length. The good things about BTS are you do get a more defined look whereas LP can become clumpy.

For now, I'll be sticking with my LP since I won't be consciously wiping the little black flecks on my face but I will be using this up.

Until next time!

  2. I do love this mascara, but the L'Oreal one is definitely similar! Which is great when you can't spend the money on the Too Faced one xx

  5. Admittedly I have never tried this mascara but I tried one similar with a brush just like this and it wasn't for me unfortunately! Loads of others seem to love it though x

  7. I've never tried the TF BTS mascara before, I've always been held back from buying it because I know a lot of people really don't think it's worth it - I'll definitely be trying out the L'Oreal Lash Paradise mascara though xo
