Make Up Monday - Too Faced Better Than Sex and Covergirl Clump Crusher

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment!!

Hope your weekend was sunny and uneventful.  We ran a few errands and visited my Grandparents.  I love watching my son play with his great-grandparents.  It is so special.

Anyhoo, back to what we are here for:  Make Up!

My favourite make up item is Mascara, which should come as no surprise considering the name of the blog.

I love to try out different brands.  I mix them.  I layer them.  I love some and hate some.

For Christmas I was gifted a sample size of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

This mascara is raved about in the blogs and on YouTube. 

Better Than Sex

After using it, I was pretty underwhelmed.  It is pretty thick and clumpy and gives you spider eyes.  The applicator is unnecessarily huge making it so awkward to put on your eye.  It also smudged all over my under eye.  My lashes are pretty long and if a mascara doesn't have good staying power, it will transfer like crazy.

I didn't want it to go to waste, so I thought I would try layering it with my all time favourite - Covergirl Clump Crusher.

Let me tell you, this really did the trick.

The Better Than Sex goes on thick and gives huge volume.  With it still wet, I layer on the CG Clump Crusher, which separates and defines the lengthens.  My eyelashes were insanely long and there was no spidery, clumpy effect.  I also found that this did not transfer to my under eye at all. 

I don't think I would recommend the Too Faced Better Than Sex, but if you have a tube lying around unused because you just can't get it to work - try this out.  You might love it too.

Let me know what mascara combos you love!

Take care and talk to you tomorrow,
