A Cheeky Review About Better Than Sex Mascara
What for you is better than sex?
Not much besides food and sleep in my opinion and that depends on my mood and when my last meal was. So when Two Faced Cosmetics names their mascara "Better than Sex", it had better be the best mascara ever created in the history of mascara since sex has some pretty big ass shoes to fill. Ever since Francois Nars got cheeky and named his blush Orgasm, it has become quite popular for cosmetic companies to push the sexy boundaries with their product names. I'm looking at you Thrrrob and Sexy Mother Pucker. There are now tons to choose from and I don't mind one bit-as long as they live up to their names. You can't name something "Tie Me to the Bedpost" and it not be an awesome product! Right?
What is supposed to make this mascara better than actual sex is the wand. Sigh, it is always about the wand, isn't it? Ok so back to the mascara wand! The wand is shaped like an hourglass, like a sexy lady hourglass which is supposed to allow for a better application. That along with it's ultra black, collagen fueled, polymer formula and "all of your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled". Sounds enticing doesn't it? The brush head is a little too big for me. I tend to prefer the skinny little brushes that coat each lash and provides a little bit of length. If you like a fat brush, you may enjoy this mascara.

It is supposed to "separate, coat and curl each lash to voluptuous perfection."
Lets take a look at some before and afters. You can all just ignore my eyebrows in these photos. Just like their owner, they don't like close-ups.

This mascara gives pretty good thickness and volume at the lash line which I like. I don't feel like it adds a ton of length. My problem with this mascara and every high end mascara ever created is the price. This mascara cost $23 and a trip to a specialty cosmetics store. I KNOW I can find a comparable, if not better mascara at my local drugstore or supermarket for less than $10.
So is this mascara better than sex? Not for me it's not. It's decent and if you prefer thickness over length (see what I did there?), this may be the mascara for you. I however cannot see myself spending $23 every other month for a mascara that is ok.
