Sometimes I go a bit overboard with my photo editing. If I could I would give every picture the 70′s effect. You know…because I’m old skool like that. But I won’t do it to y’all. But anywho – I can’t remember the last time I reviewed a Too Faced mascara. It’s been forev! I’m still in love with that gorgeous palette of theirs and I was super excited to play around with a mascara that has been around for quite some time. Except I’m late to the game on it. Which sucks considering I SHOULD be up on the new mascaras game, right? Ah well.
Price: $21 at Sephora and Sephora.com.
Packaging (brush wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
What It Claims: “A voluptuous, fluffing mascara that conditions as it thickens to create dramatically long lashes with intense color.” (source)
The Truth: Dang, this wand is awesome!!
What I Loved About It: Usually wands like these means you’ll get more lengthening than volume but it turns out that this wand + the formula makes for fantastic volumizing!
What I Didn’t Like: It’s a bit on the flaky side.
Overall: Hi Too Faced Lashgasm! I think I love you. And I know we just met and all but dang, you’re some kind of awesome. And as for youuuuuu Clumps readers, why didn’t y’all beg me to review this mascara earlier? How am I just now discovering its awesome? I mean, what rock have I been living under? Better late than never I suppose but man. I hate sleeping on fantastic mascara. Especially when I’ve been reviewing so many medicore ones as of late.
Let’s rap about the wand..
First of all, it’s pretty freaking awesome. Do you see that? Do you see how stiff and long those bristles are? They make for great separation and lengthening. And usually I see wands like this and I’m immediately like “Oh, it’ll be great for lengthening but it’ll probably be just so so in the volumizing department.” WRONG! This mascara surprised me in that it did spectacular with both lengthening and volumizing. Niiiiice.
I guess it’s the formula that makes it so fantastic. There’s nothing groundbreaking about it at first glance but when it is applied to the lashes, it instantly starts thickening up. Which, okay, a lot of mascaras do this, right? Lashgasm not only gives you the nice thick volume but then you’ve got that great brush that helps with separating the lashes.
It’s like a match made in mascara heaven. This is the perfect mascara for many types of folx. If you’ve got long lashes and just want to plump them up a bit, this will be fantatic. If your lashes are practically invisible and you need length AND volume, bam…you got it, boo. But of course, with the good comes the bad. While the mascara does a fantastic job at lasting throughout the day, you may notice some flaking. Not enough to write it off as insanely flaky but it is definitely something to note.

Do I recommend it?: Sure do! Especially if you’re a Too Faced fan. In which case you have probably already checked it out.
Where are my Too Faced fans? Have any of y’all tried this mascara yet?
