Too Faced • Ft Better Than Sex Mascara Waterproof

GlossyBox France: Too Faced Collaboration
Last month I was presented with this incredible GlossyBoxFrance Box which was a special collaboration with TooFaced and to say that I was excited by this is an understatement. Upon opening up this limited edition box I was amazed to find a stunning collection of Too Faced products including a full sized Chocolate Bar Palette and the new highly coveted Better than Sex Mascara in the NEW Waterproof version. As someone who loves gorgeous packaging, just look at the box it all came in .... for me its all about those details.

I actually already own the eyeshadow palette but it is one of my most used palettes so to have a back up is just perfect as I know I shall hit pan on a few shades soon. I also own the original Better than Sex Mascara so I thought I would just give a little run down on the contents and create my own Chocolate make-up look using all of the above products and I am not wearing false lashes so stay tuned to hear my rave review about the new Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara (hint: its incredible!).

This is definitely an eyeshadow palette I would highly recommend to all as it has a great mix of shimmer and matte shades that are all very wearable for any occasion. The powders are so soft, highly pigmented, blendable and are actually made from cocoa powder so the whole palette does indeed smell of chocolate too. Can it really get any better? I posted a full review of it here should you want to know more about it. It's a stunning palette to own.

This is a product I had not tried and yet again it smells just like chocolate as it is infused with antioxidant rich cocoa powder. I was thinking it would be too dark for me but in fact, this shade matches my skin perfectly as the signature bronzing pigments are very unique in adjusting to your skin tone. I have to say I am really impressed by this bronzer as it is truly matte with no shimmer or glitter so great for contouring with and I can see myself purchasing the full size of this. If you are looking for a new summer bronzer then do look at this one!

I used this eyeshadow primer years ago but Urban Decay Primer Potion kind of stole my heart in terms of eyeshadow primers but having tried this one yet again, I can't believe I stopped using it. This works so well with it's Too Faced family members but is a fantastic eye primer with any shadows and again, one I would most definitely recommend. Aswell as holding your shadows in place it's super creamy, glides over the eyelids and really intensifies the pigment in the shadow shades. If you have issues with your eyeshadow creasing for just not lasting on your eyelids then this is the product you most surely should be looking at.
Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Chihuahua

I am a big fan of the Melted lipsticks as I know they seem to get mixed reviews due to the packaging of them but I real don't mind. These lipsticks give you the staying power of a stain with the intense colour of a liquid lipstick and are very long wearing. I have a couple of them already in my collection and on first glance of this shade, I was worried it wasn't really me at all as it appeared very dark but I am in total love with it so never judge until you try! It reminds me of Mac Velvet Teddy but a more intense version so if you like a deep pink brown nude then this is a shade to check out. It is the perfect shade to compliment this whole chocolate bar look. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
 *NEW* Better Than Sex Mascara Waterproof  link!
I have used in the past the original Better Than Sex mascara which again gets very mixed reviews as it is ultra volumising with a tendency to go clumpy but if you like that messy lash look rather than natural, sleek and defined then you shall love it. So onto the new waterproof version which ultimately should be the same but waterproof I was assuming? Too Faced say that the hourglass shaped brush unlocks the collagen fuelled formula that thickens, lengthens and curls lashes for extreme volume and dramatic lashes. You can apply it in coats to get the desired amount of drama that you so wish.  It claims to be play proof, tear proof for all day wear whilst conditioning the lashes.

How did it Perform? I have to say that I did like the original version but not enough to entice me away from my beloved Benefit They're Real but the Waterproof version, I LOVE. To me this feels like a whole new mascara with a whole different formulation. It still performs in the way like the original one does to give you long voluminous lashes but I much prefer the formulation of the waterproof version as it does not feel as clumpy or drying as the original one. This one applies a lot better to the lashes to get the desired about of volume that you like without flaking. Now I don't have mega long lashes naturally but as you can see from the pictures above my lashes look longer, very voluminous yet still defined! I have to mention the stunning packaging of this mascara and the water droplet design is so cute and the fact that the mascara tube itself is very weighty adds to the sturdiness of applying it to the lashes as well as making it feel very luxurious. 

The Waterproof Test - Passed! I wear contacts so my eyes are always watering or I have to apply eyedrops a lot and boy this stuff is very waterproof! I mean I haven't been swimming or anything but I did splash water all over my eyes and face to see if there was all smudging or leaking and I can honestly say there was nothing, not even a flake. I am very impressed. But with every longwear waterproof mascara means that when you want to remove it, it can be challenging! You will need to use an oil or balm to remove this and really massage into the eyelashes as my usual Bioderma that always removes waterproof was just not getting anywhere. I could have used the entire 500ml bottle and I think my mascara still would have been standing. 

Mascaras always get mixed reviews as we are very different when it comes to our eyes and lashes but for me I have fallen in love with it and is definitely going to be my summer mascara as I feel totally confident that I shall be smudge free with voluminous lashes when I wear this.  I am more impressed than I actually thought I would be so if you are looking for a good waterproof mascara, you know which one to try.

  1. Wow your lashes look really beautiful on that picture. I had Better Than Sex mascara and I really liked how it performed, but I always ended up with mascara underneath my eyes by the end of the day. I might consider the waterproof version at some point. The eyeshadows look gorgeous on your eyes. x

  2. Kelly you always look so stunning! Wow! Had you not mentioned you weren't wearing falsies, I wouldn't have known! Your lashes look incredible and now I realize I need this mascara in my life. I am a fan of the original one, I remember receiving it, trying it and loving it, but for some odd reason I never repurchased. I live in a hot and humid place, more so in the summer, thus a waterproof mascara is essential for me. Shall pick this one up! Also, I love love love that Chocolate palette. I don't own it, but it is so beautiful and I keep hearing it smells like chocolate. So I shall definitely figure out a way to get that as well!

    1. Thank you as always Cat! Even looking back at these pics I was like "my lashes look good!" and makes a difference when just a mascara can do that. Sounds like this could be your ideal solution for those hot humid months as we need make up that stays in that instance for sure! ;-) Im sure you would love the choco palette ... no I know you would! I love reading your comments and thanks for taking the time as always! Kelly xxx
