Hello, friends! I don’t know about you guys, but I find that all of my mascaras tend to do the same thing. They all work “pretty well”, do their job, and finish off my makeup look for the day. I’m not the type to spend a lot of money on a product that simply gives my lashes a little bit of a boost, because I can find one that does a similar job at the drugstore. Despite all of this mascara cynicism, I think I have found a product that is worth raving about.
Today, I’m going to be reviewing the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara–letting you know if it truly is worth all the hype and if you should purchase it or not. Let’s get to it, shall we?
The L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara just recently hit the shelves of drugstores, and I have noticed that it has become quite popular in the beauty community. For good reason, too. A lot of beauty gurus are claiming that this $10 mascara is a dupe for the Too Faced “Better Than Sex” mascara. I’ve never tried this specific product, but I do know that it costs about $23 and is a favorite of a lot of the makeup loving community. How cool would it be if the drugstore came out with a product that was of the same quality of a product twice its price? Well, L’Oreal is just that cool.
Claims: This product claims to give voluptuous volume and length with a “soft wavy brush” that contains nearly 200 bristles. It also claims to have a “smooth glide formula”, which allows the product to adequately plump your lashes with just one coat.
Price: $9.99 at most drugstores
I purchased this mascara in “Blackest Black”.
I really like the packaging for this product! It’s sleek, simple, and pink. What more could you want?
First of all, the brush is huge! I agree that it is a very soft brush and applies comfortable, unlike some mascaras that can be a bit scratchy. I was surprised at how my lashes looked after just one coat. They were significantly volumized and lengthened! It looked like I had doll lashes! This formula is a little bit wet, so I tried not to bat my eyes too much, lest I smudge mascara all over my face.
Once the mascara dried a bit, I noticed that my lashes felt a little bit heavy. Because this mascara is so volumizing and coats the lashes, this can be expected. However, it did feel a little weird once I put sunglasses on. You know your mascara is working when your lashes touch the lenses of your glasses. Annoying, but slightly satisfying.
I had a hard time applying this product to my lower lashes, due to the larger brush and high impact product. I found that my wee little bottom lashes were no match for its intensity and clumped up. The mascara also got all over my lower lash line. This inconvenience is not a deal breaker for me, but I definitely prefer its effects on my top lashes.
Y’all, my lashes looked glamorous and doll-like for the entire day. This mascara did not smudge, wear off, or flake off whatsoever. I was very impressed with the lasting power of this product, because it made my lashes look great for nearly ten hours. I definitely noticed that my lashes were coated with mascara throughout the day, but again, this is due to the intensity of this mascara. It really coats your lashes and delivers on volume and length.
I am very impressed with the Lash Paradise Mascara! It makes my lashes full and thick for a long period of time, which is the dream for makeup lovers. This product is also really affordable, which gives it a thumbs up in my book!
The only thing I don’t like about this mascara is that I have to be careful when applying it to my lower lashes and it makes my a lashes feel a bit heavy. This may not be an issue for everyone, but they’re definitely things that I noticed. Despite these little annoyances, I really like this product and think it’s a jewel of the drugstore. Definitely try it out.
I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day!
