Better Than Sex Mascara Review

Hey guys! I’ve disappeared for a few days, sorry about that! It’s been pretty crazy so far in 2016, and I’ve just gotten settled at school again. I picked up a ton of new makeup and products over the holidays, so I have lots of reviews coming up soon!

This mascara is a cult favorite that I’ve been wanting to test out for quite a while. I grabbed the sample size at Sephora just to see why everyone seems to love this product so much. I gave it a test drive! Scroll down to see what I thought.


First off, the packaging is totally gorgeous. The pretty metallic pink tube is just adorable! It has some pretty high claims for a mascara. Better than sex? I’m not sure about that haha!


It claims to have a revolutionary “bombshell” brush shape. To be honest, I was not in love with the brush. It makes it very difficult to apply the mascara to your bottom lashes without getting it on your skin. It applies well to the top, though.


The formula is pretty good! It lasted all day with no flaking or smearing, and when I was applying it there were no clumps and it went on very smoothly. It made my lashes extremely thick and defined, which was really nice, but at the same time it didn’t seem to do way too much in the way of lengthening them. I’m wearing it on both eyes in the below picture-sorry for the poor iPhone quality!



The bottom line? I wouldn’t say this mascara is better than sex haha. The brush isn’t my favorite, but the formula is silky and gorgeous! If you’re looking for a mascara to make your lashes thick and sexy, this is for you! 🙂 I will probably not purchase the full size, simply because there are so many other mascaras that I want to try. But I give this mascara 4/5 stars! Find it here.

What do you think? Have you tried this, and do you think it’s better than sex? Any mascaras you’re excited to test? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Love Kiki

  1. Great review! I’ve been so curious about this mascara as well! I’ve heard really good things about it and it seems like a good mascara! It’s nice that it lasted all day! Personally, I’m a Benefit’s They’re Real girl and I have a hard time steering away from that! I may do what you did and grab a smaller version to see if I like it!

  2. I havent tried this myself, but I did always wonder about it. There’s so many mascaras out there and most of them end up looking the same haha. Mascara is one of my favorite products though so I’m always curious to see the new ones.

    This is a really lovely review, darling, thank you for sharing! The mascara looks really gorgeous on you. 🙂 I’ve never tried it myself, but always wanted to. I’m currently loving the Body Builder mascara by TheBalm – it gives crazy length and volume! x Happy new year. ❤

    I love how honest you’ve been on this cult mascara – your review matches what I’ve heard a couple of people saying now, that it’s great for thickening, though not lengthening! Have a lovely week! 🙂

    Thanks for writing this! I’ve been wanting to try this because I heard it was good for straight lashes and isn’t clumpy at all. Buuut it sounds like this isn’t the mascara for me. SO thanks for saving me some $$ 🙂
