I purchased this set on sale a little while ago on Sephora’s website but I hadn’t gotten around to trying it out. I’m a big fan of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara so I thought I’d try out their Better Than False Lashes line of mascara. This pretty packaged set contains two products that are meant to be used together : a mascara and primer and a little white bottle of synthetic lash extension fibers that are meant to give the “false lash” look.
According to the instructions on the back of the box, the gold prime and seal mascara gets applied first, acting as a base- and then the little white bottle of synthetic fibers gets used second- attaching the tiny white hair like strings to your eyelashes. Lastly, you use the first product again – the mascara- to “seal” the fibers to your lashes.
I’ll give you a look at my lashes without mascara so you can see the difference the product made. It’s a little hard to see my own lashes as they are very fine and dark blonde so without mascara they appear very sparse.
P.S. I’m not naked in these pictures 😝 I was wearing an off the shoulder top-I promise. Also this is me sans any makeup, whereas the after pictures include foundation and highlighter.
– My lower lashes look longer than my upper lashes…
VERDICT: I’m pleasantly surprised! I didn’t think I’d find much of a difference compared to the use of normal mascara but I feel like this product gave me much more lash length than the Better Than Sex mascara does! My lashes didn’t feel any fuller but definitely much longer. I was also surprised at how easy it was to use and how mess free it was! Other products with lash extension fibers that I’ve tried in the past left tiny hairlike threads all over my cheeks and didn’t quite stay on my lashes. However, I found no problems applying this mascara and it stayed on very well! Although the fibers initially did not irritate my eyes or contacts I did find as the day wore on my eyes felt a little drier than normal. Other than that however, the product does do a good job of what it’s intended for which is making lashes appear longer than regular mascara.
