Lashing Out: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Too Faced put out a fabulous new mascara that could cause some confusion for ‘Dior Blackout’ mascara lovers. With the exception of the tube color and the price, I’m hard pressed to find any real differences  between the two. Both have a ‘larger’ brush (although Too Faced’s version features an hourglass shape that I’m not sure makes much of a difference), both add an insane amount of volume, and … unfortunately… both have the tendency to clump if you’re not careful. It’s possible to overdo it with this mascara.

The volume on this mascara is insane. It definitely lengthens as well… but it’s really all about the volume. I find that I have to wipe the brush clean to get the application right. You can easily pull too much product out at any given moment. If I wipe it, I’m much less likely to get clumps. This isn’t really a ‘multiple coat’ mascara. I honestly think you can get away with one coat, and be done.

Once on, the formula does not run or smudge in any way. Even my oily lids were no match for this mascara. It comes off easily with makeup remover or good old fashioned soap and water. I had no issues taking it off at all.

So, for the record, Too Faced’s new mascara is better than a lot of things… most notably much of its direct competition. As for the other thing… well… we all embellish from time to time, don’t we? 😉
