Unboxing: My Too Faced Sex & Chocolate (Boxing Day)

No, I didn’t make a mistake in the title, even though December is gone, but I got this on Boxing Day, a day after Christmas, so have an excuse why I’m showing you last month’s box only now. Yes, I still have lots of unboxing even in January.

I’d had my eye on this bronzer for some time, and finally I got this during the Boxing Day sale at Sephora.

In this box, you get a Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced.  It was for CAD$15.00 on limited quantities. The packaging of the sample bronzer is in a soft black plastic material, not very attractive but when I open the lid, I feel like I was in a chocolate factory. The bronzer smells amazing and delicious,  I just want to eat it up!

And I believe the actual product comes with a sturdy packaging with a full sized mirror.

I have this in medium to dark, even though my skin tone is light/medium. I would say it suits my skin nicely, it warms it up, lasts all day and it’s very flattering. It also smells amazinggg!

It is matte! To me, shimmer gets old, so I want something natural-looking. Something that won’t make me look like a disco ball. Since this is a matte bronzer, it is perfect.

It’s not orange at all so you can use it to contour or just as an all over bronzer. Blends nicely and highly pigmented so you will not need a lot on your brush.One of the best out there. Totally matte, creamy, and gorgeous and so it photographs well. Product is dense, so you don’t go through it too quickly. Way to go Too Faced!

If you’re a sucker for bronzer, this is totally worth the splurge! So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and spoil yourself silly!

I know this is definitely not the latest product from Too Faced.  I’ve heard many good things about this mascara for a long time and was pleasantly surprised by it.

Better than sex, eh! Hmm… I’m trying to figure out the connection between the two and I probably need to meditate on this for an answer. lol!

I spent a week wearing it and I really like the formula. It does need more work for me to work on my short lashes to look great, but I must say the end results were undeniably satisfying.

To get the important question out of the way – does it even work? Yes, it does. But I think it would have a much more impressive result on long lashes.

I want to put it out there, this is not a waterproof mascara, so it doesn’t hold curl on my lashes that much. On my lashes I don’t feel that the amount of added length is that significant but it does appeared more voluminous nevertheless. It can get clumpy if you’re not too careful. Thankfully, it hasn’t smudge or flaked on me with two coats.

The low is that it doesn’t hold well throughout the day for me.

On a positive note, you need less of the product because it is so thick and rich!🙂 the brush has many bristles going that gives your lashes a nice even fullness.

A great formula with a luxe packaging, though I feel for most people it will be more like an occasional treat or lovely gift item rather than something they’ll regularly repurchase.

What do you think of this? Do you think it’s “better than sex”, or it is a darn good mascara! Make sure to leave your comments down below.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

  1. I love your Barbie! Unfortunately, Better Than Sex is not my fave. I have long but blonde lashes so I had high hopes for it since so many women love it. I found it gloppy and hard to work with. But Too Faced Lashgasm with a very different wand and formula is among my faves. Nevertheless, I thought that duo was a great buy. Glad you picked ’em up and got to try them out
