L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara Review
It’s been a while since I’ve been THIS EXCITED about a mascara. This review comes at an ironic time too, as my mom asked me just last night what the difference was between all of the mascaras on the market and how to tell if one is better than another.
Aside from the terms ‘volumizing’, ‘lengthening’ or ‘thickening’, the truth is that mascara works differently for everyone and we all have varied opinions or likes. Me? I enjoy a combination of formulas that will help my lashes look full, yet long and lush at the same time. I can’t stand a wet mascara that easily transfers to my lids or lower lash line when I’m applying it, and I also wear contacts so I need a formula that is safe.
Then there’s the wand and brush head…
Some companies have been getting creative with different shapes and spike-y, weapon-like applicators. I don’t hate them as they often make reaching the smallest hairs much easier; but I am a true sucker for nice, thick brushes with lots of bristles that really latch on and coat each lash.
I reiterate…mascaras really come down to personal preference. But if this sounds like something you also look for in a mascara, I promise the new L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara is going to be right up your alley. It is SO, SOOO good!
The first coat is nothing to celebrate. The second second coat, however, is where the magic happens. It builds like a dream! It adds a great amount of length and makes my lashes look fluttery and full.
Out of curiosity, I wore this mascara to work for an entire day and applied a third coat when I got home. Generally this is a big no-no! We’ve all seen those memes where too many coats of mascara ends up looking like spider legs. Surprisingly, the L’Oreal Lash Paradise did not clump!
Best of all, it keeps my lashes curled all day long! I don’t ever use a lash curler (because what lazy girl has time for that?) and I’m so impressed at how lifted this mascara makes my lashes look, which makes my eyes seem much more open. It also doesn’t flake or transfer to my bottom lash line (super key).
Plus the packaging is sleek…and PINK! Although it feels a little cheap to me (it gets dented very easily and is quite lightweight) there’s now denying how super pretty it is!
The L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara also comes in a a few different colours (Brown, Black and Blackest Black) along with a waterproof version to suit a variety of wants and needs. It is available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $14.99.
