After having at least three sample sizes of this mascara in the regular formula I decided it was time to buy myself a full size one as the others had all run out. Being oily skinned and always struggling with mascara on my face I decided to give the water proof version a go. I have been using it for a about a month on a daily basis so thought it was time I gave you my thoughts on it.
‘Go ahead and cry happy tears, Better Than Sex Mascara is Waterproof! Our iconic hourlass-shaped brush unlocks the collegen-fuelled formula that thickens, lengthens and curls for extreme volume and dramatic lashes. One coat and lashes are full, defined and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and lashes look even more luscious, curled and dramatic Three coats and you’ve achieved the most intense, voluminous, waterproof lashes possible!’
I have to say I much prefer the colour of the regular version. I mean who wouldn’t, its pink and this one is a pastel shade of green. Green really isn’t my favourite colour and as a blogger and Instagramer, green doesn’t really go with my theme.
Looking past the colour the packaging is great. The mascara feels a little heavier than any other mascara I have ever used. Gives it that luxe feeling. The name is raised/embossed on the mascara and it has what looks like water drops raised/embosed all over as well. It is super cool!
I loved the original version, so I was hoping to love this one as well. I have read varied reviews about it. But for me, I am in love! The hour glass shape wand magically creates volume and length on my lashes. Its great when I don’t want the hassle of applying lashes as each coat gives me longer and thicker lashes. I do find sometimes they get a little clumpy but I just run a clean mascara wand through them and all is good again. But in saying that, I often find this happens with other volumising mascaras I have used in the past.
I have also heard some people say that it peels and flakes off? This is not something that I have experienced with my use. So I definitely don’t have this complaint. The best part? It doesn’t end up all over my face during the day! and at the end of the day it comes off easily with my Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover.
Will I buy this again? You bet!
