Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Wand Head Close Up

Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara Wand Head
You can see how both mascara wand heads have an hourglass shape to them, although the Covergirl bristles aren't as plush or criss crossed as the Too Faced ones.

Where to Buy:

My Thoughts:  There is a bit of a love/hate relationship between myself and this mascara.  First, let me tell you what I love and maybe then I can put into words what I hate just a little bit about it.  The mascara wand head is amazing.  It's full and plush, and the shape hugs the lashes in all the right places like your favorite little black dress.  The bristles coat the lashes beautifully and give good separation.  It's one of the best mascara brush heads I've ever had the pleasure to use.  The formula is deeply pigmented and ultra black.  It doesn't leave my lashes feeling stiff and brittle.  However, it doesn't last as long as I would like it to, and I do still feel like I need to use another mascara underneath it to get the ultimate dramatic lash look I want from this mascara.  Which kind of defeats the purpose.  Also, the price is great for a prestige brand of mascara, but you can get an almost identical look to your lashes and pretty much the same mascara wand with the Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara for much much cheaper.  The Covergirl version also doesn't start to smudge after a long day of wear.

On the plus side of things, I super adore the pink metallic mascara tube and the uber cute name- Better Than Sex.

Final Verdict:  It's complicated, because I feel like if I hadn't already tried the Covergirl mascara and seen the nearly identical wand and found that it lasts a few hours longer for a cheaper price, I'd be over the moon about this mascara like I am for the Makeup Forever Smokey Lash.  Both prestige mascaras are amazing on their own, but I do find myself layering them over other lengthening formulas for a super dramatic lash look {which is ironically what I'm going for whenever I reach for these.} So perhaps if I wanted it for a less dramatic look and hadn't tried the cheaper brand first, this would be 10 out of 10 mascara for me.  As it stands though, it's a complicated 8.
