Final Thoughts
I was very excited to get this in my Boxycharm box and test it out. I love the hot pink and gold packaging, two of my favorite colors. Lots of brands are coming out with mascaras with the hourglass shaped wand that Too Faced has had with their Better Than Sex mascara for years. I’m a big fan of the Too Faced so I assumed I would love this one. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. There are other, cheaper mascaras that give a similar or even better result. (CoverGirl Exhibitionist Mascara) I wasn’t wowed with my lashes, but I appreciate that it doesn’t flake or smudge.
