Review: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Fell In Love From The First Try

Isn’t the name of the mascara catchy? No worries, rest assured that this review is still meant for all ages and no inappropriate graphics. I have always been a mascara junkie and this mascara, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara attracted my attention on the first time trying it before I grabbed it.

‘Take home our Better Than Sex mascara and all your desires for lush, incredibly intense lashes will be fulfilled. One application of our collagen-fueled formula and touch of our specially shaped brush will leave you begging for more. One coat and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and they’re reaching unbelievable heights of drama. Three coats and you’ll believe in magic.’

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Description

This was the description on the back of the box where it is slightly different from the above description I found in their website. Also there were a few ingredients highlighted that forms the function of the mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Tube

This is the tube of the mascara where on the outer later is made of metal with satin-like finish, pretty heavy in weight for a mascara yet sturdy.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Brush

The hour-shaped brush makes the mascara fit onto eye shape and wraps around the lashes much easier. The mascara formula seems wet by the first look at it, wait till you see on my application of this mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Ingredients

From the ingredients listing, this mascara is free from alcohol, silica and paraben.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Application

I definitely like the shape of the mascara brush as it fits better over my eye shape, however there are times I am worried that the tip of the brush may touch onto my skin. For as long as I’m using it, I was careful enough to avoid any blunder from happening even though I’m in a hurry. The best part about this mascara is no matter how many times I have layered over my lashes, it did not clump at all and it doesn’t dry to harden lashes.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Voluptous Volume Mascara Before & After

I did not curl my lashes before applying mascara, it’s just my naked lashes. It is quite a difference after applying the mascara as my lashes look much darken, better volume, going high sky rocket with no clumps.

Above all…

I fell in love with this mascara on the first day of trying it. Upon owning it now, I love it even more though it’s slightly pricey from the mascaras I normally have.If you don’t mind splurging, I don’t see why not this mascara? I love the shape of the brush, no clumps upon multiple layers, no smudges throughout the day and can be easily removed even with makeup remover wipes. The application was effortless and delivers quite an impressive result. This mascara cares for the lashes whereby it has collagen and acacia senegal tree extract to nourish them. It doesn’t leave my lashes hard when I have the mascara on and it is friendly to my lashes because the ingredients doesn’t contain alcohol, silica or paraben. I wouldn’t want to comment over the name of the mascara as it is very subjective.

  • Shape of the brush fits better over eye shape

Here I was introduced to try Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens which will be in stores soon. Let’s find out more about this new lens.

Innovative EautraSilTM Hydrophilic Silicone Technology 1 st Solvent-free Silicone Hydrogel Lens with 6 Times More Oxygen

Conventional silicone hydrogel lenses are hydrophobic and require the use of solvents to combine silicone with hydrogel. To raise the standard of lens wear safety, miacare incorporates its world-leading EautraSilTM Hydrophilic Silicone Technology to modify silicone molecules with new hydrophilic properties so that the silicone and hydrogel can be combined without solvent treatment. This results in the world’s first solvent-free formula for silicone hydrogel lenses: no irritation, no allergic reactions, only six times more oxygen for maximized breathability and comfort for the eye!

The unique dot pattern design is tailor-made for Asian eyes – a naturally beautiful look with plenty of room for oxygen passage. The outer pattern with a diameter of 13.2mm and a large un-obscured optical area brings out the natural beauty of the eye that as high as 88%3. of miacare CONFiDENCE users find satisfying.

  • The Unique Color Blocking Technology for Total Fade Resistance

The tri-layer printing technique keeps the pigmented layer in the center and isolated from the eye – ensuring the highest safety and protection for your eyes.

  • Smart Peripheral Edge Design for Lens Centration

Automatic conjunctiva curve alignment with an asymmetric edge design effectively brings tears and oxygen to the surface of the eye, assuring adequate tear exchange for improved surface wettability, reduced irritation and extra comfort. What’s more, the lenses will stay precisely where they are naturally, unaffected by eye movements, for a consistent, flawless look.

  • Double Moisturizing Agents: Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Alginate

This unique formula is exclusively developed by miacare to moisturize and revitalize your eyes for better eye health.

Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens With & Without

Here is how it looks for me on close up. It gives an eyes enlargement effect which is a few mm wider than from the diameter of my iris. The brown shade is lighter than I expected, it’s more of a copper shade that brings a little red undertone and tend to bring out the redness more.

Miacare Confidence Silicone Hydrogel Color Daily Soft Contact Lens - Traclyn Yeoh

Here is how it looks on the overall face and you could see that my eyes are gleaming.

Above all…

The first time when I had it on, I could help it notice that how clear the lenses are although I’m not wearing any power. It is as though I did not wear anything. With other lenses, it could take a few blinks before I could get a clearer vision. However by the end of the first day of wearing it, my eyes turned really red and that was after 9 hours of wearing it. I was thinking that it could be because I have not been wearing contact lens for a long time.

I did not give up on the lenses and tried it again after a few days when my eyes are all good and recovered from the redness. I wore it for 9 hours and this time I did not experience any redness. Nonetheless, as I look around at the corner of my eyes I could feel the edges of the lenses which made me uncomfortable the most.

The lenses is real soft that it could fold up easily and can be tricky to wear. It took me a few times to wear it. I do find that this lenses is comfortable on the overall, just a few factors that could probably because of my sensitive eyes. I don’t feel my eyes were dry and normally I would get headache when I wear contact lens and I did not experience this.  It is light that I could hardly feel like I’m wearing any lenses. You are able to register for free trial of the lenses and you could submit your details, here.

Price: MYR90 (two boxes)

PROs:

  • Clear vision once worn
  • Kept eyes hydrated
