Welcome back to my blog! I noticed people seem to be more receptive to high end and drugstore dupe posts so today I am going follow suit and do a comparison for the Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced.
The first time I got the Better Than Sex Mascara was a few years ago as a birthday gift from my friend and since then I have purchased 3 more. This mascara retails for $30 CAD or$23 USD. It keeps eyelashes very long, think, and separated. It has tendencies to clump, but I don’t mind that effect to be honest. The wand is best described as an hour glass shaped. The thing that I least like about the wand is that mascara gathers around it quite easily in comparison to all the other products I’ve tried. This can clump lashes, so I work around this by taking a spoolie without any product on it and running it through my lashes after I applied the first and second coats of mascara. In my opinion, the pros are worth the cons so I still like to use it.
Next, if you are in the market for a high end mascara I highly recommend the Superhero Mascara in Jet Black by IT Cosmetics. This mascara retails for $24-$26 USD depending on if you purchase this on Beautylish, Ulta, or ITCosmetics.com. It is really good as well and it makes my eyelashes the longest of all the mascaras I mentioned. It is easy for me to create a lengthening and thickening effect and the wand doesn’t collect excess mascara around it so it doesn’t clump as easily on the wand. My eyelashes clump slightly, but again, I do like that effect. I think in moderation it can give off a false lash appearance. I like this one better than the Better Than Sex Mascara and this is cruelty free.
I am a total mascara junkie but I also have a great drugstore mascara. The one that I have been obsessed with for about 5 years now is the Mega Plush Mascara by Maybelline. It retails $4.49 CAD but can range from $4.99 to $7 CAD depending on where you buy it. I LOVE this mascara!!! The wand appears thick and when I use the mascara it makes my eyelashes look so long and thick. This doesn’t clump my eyelashes and gives off a false eyelash appeal to it. I get a lot of compliments on my eyelashes when I wear this too. I love the washable formula in the colour Blackest Black. This is a total steal if you are looking for a mascara that mimics the effects of the Better Than Sex Mascara but don’t want to break the bank.
Thank you for reading and let me know what you think 🙂
