Too Faced Size Queen Mascara Review

What’s that saying, size doesn’t matter? Or is it it’s not the size of the boat yadda yadda yadda? Well let me tell you, size DOES matter!.. When we’re talking about mascara, that is.

I was so excited, and a little sad, opening up the last item in my US 2014 Sephora/Ulta stash – Too Faced Size Queen mascara. I couldn’t wait to whip this big boy out and use it but I think I was a little hasty and maybe a little size-ist when I bought it. I’ve always thought the bigger the wand the better the coverage but I may have been mistaken. too faced_sizequeen_mascara_wand

Let’s just say I was overwhelmed *ahem* by the sheer size of the wand. It’s at least double the size of regular wands and boy is it FAT! As you can see in the pic below the wand is huge compared to my eye which makes it a little tough to manoeuvre around the lashes. With the huge “dual-helix brush” I couldn’t manage to get right into the root of my lashes and build up a nice thick base as I usually do.

With all that in mind I actually really like this mascara. I’m able to build up the layers without my lashes coming off looking like spider legs, which is huge considering my long, Bambi lashes. I probably wouldn’t recommend it to those lasses who have shorter lashes as I just can’t see how you’d get it in (SORRY I HAD TO!)

Size Queen (US$21) isn’t as volumising as my fave L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara but it still does a great job. The formula lasts all day and there’s no smudging by 5pm which is fabulous. This will definitely get used but I don’t think I’ll re-buy this on my next Sephora haul.

too faced_sizequeen_mascara2Have you tried Too Faced Size Queen? What did you think? Was it too much wand for you to handle or do you like them bigger? 😉

  1. LOL love the naughty references. And those sunglasses! I think it makes your lashes look fabulous! But that IS a pretty big wand. I just use a cheap Maybelline atm haha!

    • Hahahahaha 😛
      Maybelline always does the trick! It’s the highest selling beauty product of all time so it’s doing something right. I just have an unhealthy relationship with mascara LOL!!
      Thanks Ashleigh xo

  2. Wow that wand is huge! Don’t know that I could handle that. Have you heard of this 3D fiber mascara from Younique? I’m totally in love! The fibers are 100% black green tea fibers and you use it with their gel. It is $29, but it gives you the volume and length plus it has totally eliminated my need for a curler (no joke check out my blog and video here: https://gratefulnerd.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/sayonara-eyelash-curler/). Plus it lasts you 3+ months and comes with a bitchin case! https://www.youniqueproducts.com/LaSarah/products/view/US-1017-00#.VVqgv_lViko No smudging! This stuff is awesome (and if it doesn’t work out you can get a full refund no questions if returned within 14 days, 80% refund after 30-90 days)!

  3. BAHAHAAA! Honey you know how I love the filth. I’d like to double YOUR entendre, if you catch my drift. This mascara looks fab- so help me I do appreciate a big, fat… wand. Your lashes look amazing and the innuendo (in your end o) gave me life! ♥

Now it's your turn...let me know what you think. I love reading your comments! :)
