I thought it was about time I started reviewing some of the products I get from my Boxy Charm, as well as ones that I have had for awhile! I have a huge back up of products that I have been trying out but just hadn’t gotten around to letting you all know my thoughts on.
First up is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara that I received in my February 2019 ‘After Glow’ Boxy Charm, as well I also have another full size in my drawer! I love the packaging on this mascara, it is a beautiful, light pink tube that is fairly heavy for a mascara.
Here is what the Too Faced site has to say about it -
A mascara so amazing, it’s Better Than Sex! This formula thickens, lengthens, and curls after just one coat for the most luscious, dramatic, and volumized lashes possible. The #1-selling prestige mascara in America, Better Than Sex, gives you mind-blowing lashes, every time!

ACACIA SENEGAL TREE EXTRACT-Sets volume
UNIQUE PEPTIDES-Condition lashes
The wand on the Too Faced Better Than Sex is a fairly large hourglass shape. I love that it has a natural bristle brush as well, no poking the eye! I don’t find the mascara to be a very wet one, nor do I find it to be that dry…. Its just right in the middle for me. I do find that there is a little to much mascara on the brush when I pull it out of the tube though, I do have to wipe it off on the tube, which can tend to make the tube start looking messy quickly. As you can see from the pictures below, I think I get decent volume and length from just one coat. This is a nice black shade, no grey looking lashes!
You would think from what I said above that I would be giving the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara a great rating, and you would be right if I was writing this review a month ago. Now that the weather has changed to being warmer (at least some days!) I am finding that the mascara is starting to smudge on my underage area. I do have fairly good seasonal allergies where I sneeze a lot and my eyes will water whenever someone is cutting the grass. So unfortunately for me, I can only wear the Too Faced better Than Sex mascara in the cooler months. If you don’t have a problem with watery eyes you h=may have better luck with this mascara or maybe try the waterproof version? I have a feeling that I may be going through my mascara stash more quickly now that allergy season is upon me, racoon eyes is not the look I am going for.
Do you have any favourite mascaras that don’t smudge? Let me know what they are.
