Brandefy Review

Better than Sex is $24/tube and L'Oreal is $7/ tube. Both products come in a similar pink tube with an hourglass application wand but the Better Than Sex mascara packaging is heavier and has a more pronounced hourglass shape. Both mascaras created intense volume with excellent black pigmentation. Both grabbed onto the lashes, curled, and had nearly identical looks after application and would recommend trying this Loreal dupe.

I find the too faced mascara to be SO much better. The L’Oréal is clumpy and makes my lashes stick together.



I find these to be dupes! Personally I liked the L’Oréal better, it didn’t make my lashes clumpy or dry out like too faced.

I have used both mascaras and can honestly say that they perform very similarly. As far as it clumping, both mascara are a thick and are meant to give a fuller look. I experienced clumpy applications from both. However, the deal breaker is the price. Therefore, L’Oréal has my vote entirely.



I’ve been using BTS for years, but was looking for a cheaper alternative. Lash Paradise doesn’t come close! The formula is too wet, and it comes out very clumpy. I’d say it was a 50% match only because of the brush and look of the tube.



The BTS Too Faced Mascara is hands down far better than the L’Oréal one. I had read reviews on Amazon saying they were similar and wanted to save some money. I absolutely hated the L’Oréal one! All of my eye lashes stuck together so much so they would fall out. The mascara itself doesn’t have the same consistency or texture as the BTS one. I felt like I had plastic eyelashes and I never had that feeling with BTS by Too Faced. I posted the review on Facebook and all of my friends agreed except for one.



The L’Oreal formula comes nowhere near close the Too Faced formula. It makes my eyelashes super sticky and they are sticky even after washing my face and using eye make up remover. I had read online that this was a dupe and was so disappointed when I bought it because it’s nowhere near close. It did lift my lashes and make them have volume but it wasn’t worth the struggle and mess required to take it off.



Honestly... lash paradise was better! My lashes were longer and the wand wasn’t as big so I didn’t get accidental raccoon eyes!



The L’Oreal product is good however the top faced product is better - it’s honestly the best mascara I’ve ever used. I still totally use the L’Oreal product though as it’s one of the best drugstore mascaras I’ve found (that and voluminous)...however if I find bts on some kind of a deal (hint check Macy’s!...keep it on your list there) please believe I’m snapping it up ASAP.



I have been using BTS for years and love it and once the L’Oréal one came out I tried it and I was just not a fan. It’s very drying to the point where if you go in for the second layer it clumps together and there is no way to fix your lashes without use of a comb. Most people honestly just stick with it because of the cheaper price tag. And BTS is collagen infused.



I prefer the L'Oréal mascara. I have such a hard time getting my eye lashes fuller & longer. I loved the BTS mascara, but happened to stumble on this L'Oréal one day. I honestly had never hears of it being a dupe — ever since Ive tried it, I havent gone back to BTS. For me, the product doesn’t dry up as quick as BTS .. and... i will gladly buy a less expensive mascara if I find one that works! ..that way I can use those saved dollars to buy a good primer!



I have the L’Oreal in the waterproof version. Not sure if that changes the way it goes onto the lashes, but I do think it’s a tad more clumpy. That said, I usually layer it last (I use multiple mascaras) and it does just as good of a job as the BTS as far as spreading the lashes and covering.



The look is the same in the end but the L’Oréal flakes away much faster. But then I do feel the too faced is a bit flaky for its price point too
