Mascara Monday: Too Faced Better Than False Lashes mascara

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes

Ohmigoodness. Seriously? Seriously?!! Why didn’t anyone tell me about this mascara? I mean, I knew about its release and I know I’ve been a bit behind with this whole blogging thing, but I recently got a press sample of it and someone should have totally told me about this mascara months ago. Because, woooooow. I am just….wow.

Can I just be lazy and do a blog post about a mascara and say “Wow”? Would y’all still love me if I did that?

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes mascara

I don’t think you would. Okay, then…full review it is, then.

Price: $35 from Sephora and  from TooFaced.com.
Packaging (brush wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4.5 out of 5

What It Claims: “This no-glue, totally glam-azing formula lets you have all the drama of false lashes in an easy, safe, 3-step process.” (source)

The Truth: I have never seen anything like this. And yes, that’s a good thing but wow…I wonder why more people aren’t talking about this mascara.

What I Loved About It: While at first glance it may appear intimidating, it is actually very easy to use.

What I Didn’t Like: I don’t think it provides as much volume as it “could” but that’s okay. What it can do in the lengthening department completely rocked my world.

Overall: So I’m still just wee bit shocked that this mascara isn’t more popular. I’m thinking the price tag of $35 is the reason but c’mon…I see higher-end brands that always price their mascaras at that price. This is out of the ordinary for Too Faced, and honestly, I’m starting to see why they can justify a hefty price tag for this mascara. It really is THAT awesome.

I won’t write a book here but I do want to quickly go through how this works. You ready?

  • The mascara comes with 2 separate wands. Each are labeled so that you know when to use them.
  • You a thin coat of the first mascara. This acts as a sticky base.
  • You then apply the second mascara. The second mascara looks like a tube of lint (no really, it does).
  • You then apply a second coat of the first mascara.

Let’s take a look at these wands…

They both are nice and long and will easily comb through lashes. This, I believe, is a very important aspect in this system. Sephora has a really good breakdown for what the system actually does.

The activating mascara base and top coat is designed specifically to melt and seal the Flexistretch nylon fibers into long, thick, dramatic lashes without the risk, mess, or commitment of other false lash alternatives. Unlike traditional fiber mascaras, Better Than False Lashes allows you to dial up the lengthening fibers so you easily get better, longer, thicker, more dramatic lashes instantly. (source)

In a sense, it is A LOT like a fiber mascara. Remember those? They were pretty big around in 2012 and 2013 but have fallen off of the grid a bit. I’ve always loved them and I hate that they aren’t as popular but I am loving Too Faced’s rendition of a fiber mascara. Having a mascara tube of the “fibers” is just genius because it allows to place it anywhere on your lashes.

A second coat of the mascara turns the white fibers black and they blend in nicely and look, yes, like false lashes but…naturally. I love it!

The biggest downfall is that if your goal is to achieve thick and luscious lashes, it may be hard to do with this as getting the fibers close to the base of your lashes may result in fiber thingies falling into your eyes.

And removal is super easy. It’s just like removing a fiber mascara. You wet your fingertips and gently massage the lashes. This also means that you won’t have any issues with smudging or flaking so…yay!

And that makes me sad because y’all know how much I love Drag Queen lashes.

Do I recommend it?: I do! Especially if you need something new in your mascara collection. While some may find it tricky or necessary, I loved how much longer this mascara made my lashes. Isn’t ideal to use in pinch (or for reapplication) but if you’ve got 5 minutes, extra pennies and want to seriously lengthen your lashes, you will LOVE this mascara.

So um…why didn’t any of you tell me how awesome this mascara was? I thought you were friends. I have a sad.

    I’m glad this really worked out for you, but sadly I do believe its the hefty $35 price tag which would turn most people off. Granted, when I used to buy Lancome hypnose drama mascara its that price, but I felt like it was totally worth it. With you saying you don’t feel like this mascara gives as much volume as it could then that turns me off it. If I’m going to pay good money for something, I want it to be the best it can be. Maybe I’m too picky, but just how I feel. I then discovered Clinique’s new volume mascara that was meant to rival hypnose drama but cheaper in price, and it really did. One coat of that, and I even feel like its a “wow” factor.
