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". . . . . .

Disappointing

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.

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.

Good

The masacara really does do a good job of elongating your eyelashes but, it definatley gives more length than volume. I really did like this product a lot however it feels really sticky

I can't stand this crap!! It's overpriced and does absolutely nothing. I tried applying multiple layers and still got the same measly results. I've got cheap NYX mascara that works 10x better then this stuff. I returned it and got my money back!

No!

As most.people have posted, it sounds amazing and I had to try it for myself. I returned it. While the system sounds simple, it's time consuming, three steps takes more time than I have on a normal morning. But outside of that, as it usually takes me longest for mascara application, it was incredibly sticky. The top and bottom lashes sticks together every time you blink and the little tiny fibers got into my eyes which causes watering. Its not water proof, just resistant and there is a difference. I used it twice and my daughter used it three times. It honestly didn't work any better than any other lash plumping curling and separating formula. Ultimately it was exchanged for a different one. Its not worth the time and hassle.

Great Special Occasion Mascara

This mascara takes a few tries to get right. You essentially build layers of mascara and fibers to get your desired volume and length; however I found that getting the right combo can be tricky. After the first layer of mascara, you really have to get the fibers flowing in the same direction before you seal them with mascara again. This not only crates the length you want but also keeps your lashes from looking clumpy. You can do a few layers of each but beware! Your lashes will be HEAVY and STICKY if you coat more than a couple times. The effect once you have found your magic combo is stunning and well worth the effort. I sincerely recommend giving this product a try.

I absolutely LOVE this product.

I decided last year to try the NovaLash system, which can be up to $300 and then 100 for "fills". that got waaay too expensive. Not to mention they itch and burn, and if you rub them for relief, you create additional irritation. Too Faced's Better Than False Lashes is an AMAZING alternative, which uses your NATURAL lash, and enhances it. this is helpful for people like myself. I have lashes but it helps to create the dramatic effect I seek, without killing my bank account and my eyesight. Thank you TooFaced!!! and PLEASE never discontinue this product PLEASE! :-)
