Recently I went shopping and I did a huge Ulta/Sephora haul. So many new products are out and there were several things I had been wanting to try so I just ended up buying a ton of stuff. Lately I’ve been trying out new mascaras to see which ones I like and how they compare to my favorites. So, being a huge fan of Too Faced and the fact that their Better Than Sex mascara is one of my all time favorites, I was excited to try the Better Than False Lashes Extreme mascara. I was sure that it was going to be a great product because Too Faced could do no wrong as far as I was concerned. Well, I was sadly mistaken and utterly disappointed. This mascara has got to be THE WORST product they have EVER come out with!! Here’s the break down:
- Step 1-Prime lashes with the mascara
- Step 2-Build with the fibers
- Step 3-Seal with the mascara
First of all, the fibers are super messy. I would assume that they would adhere to the lashes a little better, maybe sticking to the mascara applied in step 1. But no, they fell all over my face and into my eyes. I even tried not blinking until I reapplied the mascara in the last step to seal. The fall out from those fibers was awful and they burn when they get into your eyes. Secondly, after putting the mascara on again over the fibers it was clumpy, flaked off and made my lashes ridiculously hard. After only a few minutes of having this stuff on, my top and bottom waterline started itching. It was so bad. Even after I washed it off my eyes were still bothering me. This mascara is supposed to make your lashes longer and thicker. It did add length, I’ll give it that but it looked awful. My lashes were hard and sticking out in every direction. As far as making them thicker…yeah if you consider clumpy thicker. For $35 I expect so much better, no matter what brand it is. Now, it could be that I’m just allergic to this particular mascara and that’s why it bothered my eyes so much but even so, it still looked absolutely horrible. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it one more time because maybe the first time went wrong due to user error(not that there are too many ways to completely mess up putting on mascara). But again, it was a total disaster. Needless to say, I returned this product.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
