Fans of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara will soon be able to scoop up Better Than Sex stilettos. After months of sneak peek product launches on Instagram, co-creator and chief creative officer Jerrod Blandino announced yesterday that the makeup brand will release a limited number of Better Than Sex heels at their Better Than Sex Pop-Up Shop, set to open sometime in October in New York City.

Blandino captioned one Instagram photo.) The stilettos also have "Better Than Sex" embossed on the soles in gold lettering.
