Another great must-buy is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Lash On & Melt Off Set $10 (or about R142). This intensely black, volumizing mascara has an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. It’s a cult classic when it comes to volumizing mascaras and for Black Friday Sephora is pairing it with the equally legendary Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil. This fabulous cleansing oil dissolves regular and waterproof mascara and removes every trace of mascara so there’s no nasty surprises in the morning. This duo would usually retail for $40 (or about 568) together but this Black Friday you can get it from Sephora and save $30 (or about R425)!
