Too Faced Lashlight Mascara Review

By  |  10 Comments

A few weeks ago, my parents were in town visiting. We had a great time, and on the last day they were here, we had a bit of time to kill, and since they rented a car they needed to fill up the gas before heading to the airport. Their hotel just so happened to be by a Costco, and since I needed to buy cat litter (I never thought I would be buying a 42 pound bag of cat litter, but here we are!) and really wanted one of those long, quiet, rotating fans (which, as it has turned out, is life changing and I may need to buy another) we headed over there, and my mom and I ran in while my dad waited in the ridiculous line for gas.

As we were (somewhat) quickly going through the aisles, we passed the beauty section and I saw this mascara- 2 for $12! This retails at $25 each, and since my mom was just saying she needed a new mascara, I decided to buy it and split it with her, because I thought the idea of this mascara was intriguing and would be worth a review.

tflashlighttflashlightThe “lash lights” are built into the cap, and there is a button to turn them on/off at the top of the cap.


The lights in this are LED lights, so they are very bright and cool-toned.  To be completely honest, I’m not sure how I feel about them. The point of them is to be able to see where your mascara is going, but it actually hurts my eyes to have that light THAT close to them while applying the mascara. I can see this being useful if you need to apply makeup in the car (as a passenger!) or somewhere that doesn’t have much light.




As for the mascara itself, I like it! This is without curling my lashes, and since my lashes tend to be pretty straight, I liked the bit of curl I got with this. I like the brush too, I normally don’t like huge brushes for mascara, and this one is an average size.

Overall, I’d say this is worth picking up for 2 for $12 at Costco, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t pay $25 for it. Even better if you find a friend to split it with! :)

    The LED light is supposed to make your eye open wider so you can get mascara from the very root of the lash to ends…. so says Too Faced representatives but i agree they hurt my eyes too

    I got this mascara in the LashStash set from Sephora and I LOVE it!! maybe my eyes aren’t as sensitive as yours? I thought it was great for when your in a club or out at night where the lights are super dim. Or even getting ready at home early in the morning when it’s still dark and you don’t want to turn ALL the lights on. I liked it!

      It would be interesting to know what colour your eyes are, because i know my blue eyes are way more light sensitive than my brother’s brown eyes! Apparently the brown pigment handles the light better (according to my optometrist)

    Can you apply it without the light or does the light turn on whenever you open the mascara?

    I loooooveee that mascara! I picked it up from Ulta a year ago and it was only $20 there, plus I had a coupon. I keep this mascara in my car for last minute applications and its great when you don’t have lights in your visor mirrors, or at the club. I also love the mirror on the side. By far one of my fav mascaras. I haven’t had a sensitivity with the light so I guess it just depends on the person? I think Ulta still might have a tester for you see if the light is too much (obviously don’t use the mascara wand on your eyes tho). Glad to hear it’s on sale at costco! I’m so buying it tomorrow!
