Too Faced Cosmetics - Better Than False Lashes

When I was 14 years old, I had a really beautiful best friend, who was just a little bit evil too. Let's call her "Cher". She had the longest lashes I had ever seen! I had tried everything to get mine to look as long as hers; Baby powder under my mascara, Olive oil at night, layering, separating with a safety pin, nothing worked. Finally I asked her... "Cher, how can I get my lashes to look like yours, all long and fluttery"? She said, "you really wanna know"? "yes, I'll do it, just name it" I said. "Cut them" she said.. "cut them???" "Yup" she said "how short do I cut them?" "That depends, how long do you want them? The shorter you cut them the longer they'll grow" she told me. I raced home, ran to the mirror, and scissors in hand prepared to have super long, luxurious lashes, after all, I had cut them to the base, short as i could without bleeding. Long story short.....She got a good laugh and I looked like a burn victim for what felt like an eternity. I blame her for my stubby short lashes. I am convinced that they've never grown back to the original length. I had dreams that my lashes were so long that I couldn't open my eyes unless someone helped hold my giant lashes open and then I'd have to get a hedge-trimmer sized scissors to cut them because they were so thick and heavy. As I grew up, I used to avoid wearing mascara so as not to draw attention to what little I had. As a makeup artist, you really cant get away with that, so I started experimenting with every formulation of mascara I could find. I was determined not to go the strip lash route. Who has time for that every day?
I am happy to say I have found the Holy Grail ! Too Faced Cosmetics Better Than False Lashes ! This stuff is so amazing that I cant wear it everyday. I mean it's obscene ! I cant go to the grocery store with Kim Kardashian length lashes! Who do I think I am?
Here's how it works....... It comes with two tubes. One is an activating mascara and the other a tube of flexistretch fibers. First you use the mascara, while still wet, you coat the lashes with fibers, and repeat. Careful not to get carried away or you risk having porn star lashes. Trust me on this, it's easy to do. Here are my lashes before and these are what my lashes look like after only 2 coats of Better Than False Lashes big difference... so I'll let you be the judge.... but I'm pretty sure that this if the answer to me finally getting back at my old bestie. Eat your heart out "Cher". . . . . .

Not for everyday use.

I like this mascara a lot on special occasions. But I dont't use it every day because it's a hassle to put on AND take off. I ALWAYS get the stupid fibers in my eye, and it makes my tear so I have to redo my mascara. But this mascara does really work. I have short, flat Asian lashes and this mascara gives me tons of volume and length (while looking a little flaky). I will not be repurchasing, there is a better mascara from Hard Candy call 1,000 lashes...and its only $6.


I get a lot of products free from my job to test them out, and was super excited to find this in my gratis bag! But when I got home and had tried it on for more than 10 minutes the fibers were in my eyes and hurt! Also it clumps really easily. I also noticed that if you put it on your top and bottom lashes they'll stick together and bug you all the time!!! Totally not worth it if you're going out to go buy it.


i wasnt sure to buy this bc of the bad reviews i read but i give them a try and I love it. i cant live without them. it isnt hard to use, but you need to folow the steps and i tought that it will be messy to clean it out but no, with water and my makeup remover it came out. its a really nice product. maybe the bad reviews are bc they dont know how to apply this so:
step 1 put the black mascara
step 2 put the white one but start from the middle of ur eyelash not from the bottom
step 3 apply the black mascara again


This mascara just wasn't for me. I like the concept, but the final result left much to be desired. If you're unsure of how this product works, applying it may take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze. The formula is where this mascara fell flat. The nylon fibers went on fairly easily and mess-free, but applying the second coat of mascara is where things fall apart. The mascara clumped easily. Some of the fibers fell off naturally when I applied the second coat of mascara. It took a noticeably long time for my lashes to dry, and the mascara smudged above my lids in the process. Finally, the nylon fibers did nearly nothing to enhance the length of my lashes. If the nylon fibers had given my lashes the length they promised, I would have kept this product, but they didn't. Just didn't work for me.

Mascara's Dynamic Duo!!

I'ts a Bird! It's a Plane! No! I'ts your lashes after using Better Than False Lashes. Gone are the days you spent in the mirror gluing falsies to your lid, and almost ripping your lid off during removal. BTFL give you natural looking lash extension and volume, without the compromise. I've used this product on myself and others and I have been satisfied every time.

My Go-To Mascara

Up until recently I used only drugstore brand mascaras. I didn't really appreciate what a quality mascara could do. I was intrigued by the multiple step process and heard a lot of good things about this one, so I purchased it. Once I tried it, I was hooked! I've had really good results with it. Sometimes I just wear the black mascara part. Other times, I go the whole way and use the nylon bits as well. My lashes definitely look longer and more full. I usually do it pretty-and-go style, and it works great, but if you have some patience and really get it sorted out, you'll get an extra strong result. I think it is especially good for people with thinner lashes.

Besides clumping...

... It is one of the best products out there. This is every girl's must have in their make up kit. The only down fall about this is clumping. I don't like the clumping but i love that it thickens and lengthens my lashes. If you are a false lash lover, this will be your new best friend. The process does take quite a bit of patience but it'll pay off, I promise. You won't regret it if you buy it.

A great mascara...if you tweak it a little!

First, know this. I am always on the hunt for a great mascara. It has become like a personal challenge for me. This one isn't perfect but it is one of the best I have used. I bought this on the recommendation of a consultant at Sephora and had problems with it the first time I used it. I found it to be very sticky and my top and bottom lashes kept trying to fuse together, making me do this weird winking thing all day in an effort to pull them apart! Needless to say, I looked a little weird. I went back to Sephora and talked with the same consultant - super helpful and super sweet - and she told me NOT to use it on my bottom lashes. I used it the next day...only on the top...and it worked out great. Then I began to experiment! Here are some recommendations that may work for you.
1. Wear it on your top lashes only.
2. Wear it top and bottom, but use another product as your final coat. The new Anastasia top coat that makes any mascara waterproof works well for this method.
3. Use the tube of fibers with a totally different mascara. I tested this with Benefit's They're Real due to the wonderfully separating brush...worked like a charm.
I hope these tips are helpful to someone! This mascara is not my holy grail,but it is a good one.

AMAZING mascara...IF you have money to blow.

LOVE it - it does what it says it will. The downside being that I know this trick and have my own mascara wand that I physically wrap with cotton and do this extra step on my own with any mascara that I have. I will say though that this Too Faced wand is perfect for grabbing the cotton fibers and applying them on your lashes easily and evenly. After trying it out every time I walked into a Sephora, I was about to buy it...until I saw that it was nearly $40. It's a great prodcut, but in my opinion, not $40 worthy, and therefore, not 5 stars either!
