Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara Dupe?!

Hello lovelies! We’re so glad its the weekend! Hope everyone is getting some much needed rest and relaxation. If you haven’t yet, check out Katelyn’s wish list this week, especially if you feel like getting some retail therapy 😉

This week let’s talk about a new mascara that is already sold out in most drugstores. L’oreal recently came out with a new mascara called, L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise, and many have been comparing it to the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. The packaging is almost identical and even the brush has a similar hourglass shape. Is it a dupe?! Keep reading 😉

Description

This mascara is supposed to take your lashes to paradise!? (let’s think of a sandy white beach in Hawaii) It will provide volume and length with more intense black pigments. The 200+ bristles (OMG!) will hug every lash and the formula will provide full feathery lashes that are still soft to the touch. We bought ours at Shoppers Drug Mart for about $14.99CAD. It contains 0.28oz of product and it comes in three shades: blackest black, black and black brown. And for all those who cry really easily (aka Helen), there is a waterproof formula as well.

Review

This is now become our new go-to everyday mascara. It makes your lashes look so flirty and fluttery! If you apply one coat, it looks really natural which is great for everyday, but you can also build it up without getting spidery lashes which is a look we personally don’t go for. We were so pleasantly surprised to still see your lashes up and perky despite wearing it for the whole day. It really holds a curl and it doesn’t transfer under our eyes!? The brush truly does catch every lash which is what we really enjoyed about the Too Faced mascara.

The formula is on the drier side, so my only concern is that it will dry out quickly. We’ll have to wait and see, but so far so good. This mascara is a little pricey in comparison to other drugstore mascaras, but it has by far outperformed the ones we’ve tried, including some high end brands.

Pros Cons
  • Lengthening, volumizing
  • Long-lasting
  • Holds a curl
  • No smudging/flaking
  • Great everyday mascara
  • Pigmented
  • Hourglass shaped brush

 

  • Dry formula – tube may dry out fast
  • Pricey for drugstore

Let us know if you’ve tried this mascara and if you love it as much as we do! Tell us about the mascaras that you’ve tried that have changed your lash game. As always, share with us the products you would like to be reviewed. Have an awesome day and stay tuned for Helen’s weekly wish list next week Thursday!
