Here's What 4 POPSUGAR Editors Really Think of Too Faced's New Better Than Sex Liner
After the massive success of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($24) — which sells once every 7.5 seconds and is the No. 1 selling prestige mascara in the US, according to the NPD Group — the brand has decided to expand its collection by introducing the Better Than Sex Eyeliner ($21). The new brush-tipped pen, which launches on the brand's website on March 17, dispenses an inky black liquid that Too Faced claims is waterproof, is flake-proof, and lasts for a full 24 hours.
We enlisted four POPSUGAR editors — of differing skill levels and tactics of finessing liquid eyeliner — to put it to the test. Here's what they really thought.

Beginner Level: Jessica Chassin
"I loved this eyeliner because of how black the formula is and how easy it was to apply. I basically have zero skills when it comes to eyeliner — I can't even draw a small wing — so the fact that I can use it without having to touch it up with a wipe is major." — Jessica Chassin, coordinator, social media
Intermediate Level: Rachael Edwards
"The Too Faced Better Than Sex Eyeliner has a skinny felt tip, which makes executing a perfect line on my top lid easy. Since I do not wear eyeliner every day and my mornings move very quickly, I loved how it glided on quickly and dried super fast. I also love that the pigment darkens after it dries. It opens my eyes right up. I can see myself coupling the Better Than Sex Mascara (which I use every day) with the brand's new eyeliner." — Rachael Edwards, coordinator, social media
Intermediate Level: Fabiola Lara
"The Better Than Sex eyeliner has a really good brush tip applicator that makes it easy to apply even if you're not a pro. It does take a few swipes to get an even black application, but once you're set, it stays put throughout the day." — Fabiola Lara, senior editor, social media
Expert Level: Jesa Marie Calaor
"I've worn liquid eyeliner in a dramatic cat eye since I was a teen, and my pen of choice has to check off the following boxes: it must have the highest opacity, a flexible tip, and lasting staying power. The Better Than Sex Eyeliner ($21) is equipped with all of these things. Its brush tip tapers to a sharp point, allowing me the precision to draw perfect points at the ends of my wings. I did have to run the pen over my flares twice to get the fullest opacity (one sweep of the liner is very dark, but adding the second layer takes it to the next level), but after doing so, they were stark black, dramatic, and never moved." — Jesa Marie Calaor, assistant editor, Beauty
