Review: Too Faced Better than Sex Amazing Eyes Set (Eyeliner & Mascara)

Okay Too Faced, you got me with your clever naming conventions. But does it perform up to expectations?

I picked up the Too Faced Better than Sex Amazing Eyes set on Boxing Day! It was $14 and contains deluxe sample sizes of Better than Sex Mascara and Perfect Eyes eyeliner. 

Although you can't purchase this set anymore, I thought the review can be helpful for those looking to buy the full size. 

Better than Sex Mascara- 5mL
Full Size $23 (8mL)

This mascara is in a really pretty pink packaging that is very sleek and travel friendly. The brush is natural bristles in an hourglass shape. I'm a big fan of these types of brushes as they usually separate my lashes very well. 

I got a very nice black flirty look out of this. However the trouble is that I end up with little black flecks within a couple of hours! For a high end mascara, I find that quite unacceptable. I wasn't rubbing my eyes or anything!

I would probably pass on this mascara and just go for drugstore favorites like the Maybelline Falsies or the L'Oreal Voluminous mascara.

Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black- .8g
Full Size $18 (1g)

The first thing I noticed is that this eyeliner is the most creamy, most pigmented black eyeliner every! I was so excited by how amazing this swatched. However, when I was applying it, I found the creaminess to be a bit much as you have to really control your application. Also, since it's so pigmented, it's hard to make it look even on both sides.

The other thing I was disappointed about is that it does not hold in my waterline. Within two to three hours, the line has started breaking apart. This stays put on my upper lashlines, but I want something that stays on my lower lashes too.

Overall, if you are looking for creamy, this is it! However, I wouldn't recommend it for it's staying power and I found it to be too strongly pigmented for my liking.

Freshly Applied

After 5 hours.

It's hard to tell in the photo, but I had little black flecks underneath my eye from the mascara fall out. Also, the eyeliner has considerably broken down in the waterline. 

Unfortunately these two items were a bit of a dud for me. But I still love Too Faced as a brand. They came out with a bunch of amazing items for Spring 2015 that I'm excited to check out. Here's a link: Too Faced Spring Collection

Have you tried this mascara/eyeliner from Too Faced? Are you eyeing anything from their new collection?
