Mascara is probably the one beauty item I would want to have if I were stranded on an island. Although, if I were stranded on an island chances are I wouldn't be seeing other humans, and there would be a lot of other important things to consider, so would it matter? No.
Okay, let's try this again. Mascara is probably the one beauty item I would want to have if I were traveling and only allowed to pack one item in the tiniest of carry-on bags. For me, it has the most impact over all other makeup. It's the last thing that I apply when I'm doing my makeup, and once it's done, it's like, BAM!
With that said, I tend to try a lot of mascaras. I've tried just about all of the brands out there. I've spent $5 and I've spent $30 (ouch) hoping to find the miracle product. Each new mascara says it's 100 times better than the last, and they all claim to work wonders on even the smallest, saddest lashes. Some have come close, but so far none compare to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I like to call it BTS for short.

It claims to add 1,944% more volume based on a clinical study. I've always wondered how they measure that. It is supposed to add curl, volume, length, and an intense black color to lashes. For once, the claims are actually true (well, I don't know about the 1,944%)!
The first few times I used the product it had a tendency to glob on the brush. I ended up wiping the brush with a tissue to remove the excess, and that seemed to fix the issue. Other than that, I can't say a negative about this mascara - the brush is the perfect size for reaching both the outer and inner corners of the lashes, the hourglass shape is perfect for application, and I like the packaging.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
