Too Faced Damn Girl vs. Better than Sex | Review & Side by Side Comparison
It’s been five years since the release of Too Faced’s wildly popular and cheekily named Better Than Sex mascara, and the unicorn and glitter-loving brand just debuted its spicy follow-up: Damn Girl! 24-Hour mascara. With all the hype surrounding this sophomore effort, I had to put it to the test to see if it stacked up to my HG Better Than Sex.
Let’s get right into it. The first thing I noticed was how similar Damn Girl’s brush is to Better than Sex - same hourglass shape, but quite a bit bigger. I already find BTS’s brush plenty big enough, so this was an unwelcome surprise right off the bat.
Honestly, I wasn’t expecting Damn Girl to blow my straight, puny lashes out of the water considering how high Better Than Sex set the bar, but I was expecting more drama than this. While it’s not a bad mascara by any means, the proof’s in the photo: Better Than Sex is the clear winner for lift, length, and volume. Unless you’re really itching for a different mascara, save your $ and stick with Better Than Sex.
Bottom line? When it comes to good movies and mascaras, the sequel rarely lives up to the original. I’ll be sticking with my beloved BTS for now.
