L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara Review



I cannot believe that I am only just getting around to trying this L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara out. I feel like I am so late onto the bandwagon with this product. I wanted this from the first moment that I saw it because I couldn’t deny how stunning the packaging is. I think the only thing that put me off from buying this sooner was that I am somewhat of a high-end makeup snob. If you have read my blog for a while, you will probably have gathered that for yourself because I make no secret about how much I love high-end makeup and I am reviewing it all of the time. Not to mention that I have been having a little love affair with my old favourite drugstore mascara the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

I feel like from the moment this mascara was launched, everybody seemed to be talking about it. Obviously, it was sent to hell of a lot of people in PR and that is why it seemed to be all over blogs and YouTube, and that is why it seemed to explode all over the internet. I think that is another reason why it has taken so long for me to buy this, because I hate to jump on the bandwagon early doors just because there is a buzz about a product, I like to bide my time and look into reviews before I spend my money on anything.

The first thing that I want to mention in this review is the packaging. I always start with the packaging when I talk about a new product, because that is the first thing that you notice about a product and a split decision is always made based on the packaging. Straight away, I loved the look of this mascara. I like that it is the stunning millennial pink that is very similar to my favourite Maybelline Mascara. I would say that it does feel look like a drugstore mascara, because most of my high-end ones do look much sleeker, but that really doesn’t bother me, and I think that it looks really nice!



When you pull the wand out of the tube, it looks almost identical to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, which is one of my most used mascaras and I am pretty sure that I read online that it is the most bought mascara ever. It has a strange shape to it, which is unlike your standard mascara. When I first started to use the L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara, the shape of it really didn’t bother me because I was already used to wearing the Better Than Sex, but I can imagine it been ever so slightly challenging for somebody who is completely new to it to use.

I have been using this L’Oréal Mascara for quite a while now and I think that I would say that it is more of a lengthening mascara than it is volumizing. If I apply this with absolutely nothing else on my lashes, it makes them so long and lifted that the ends of my lashes are almost touching my eyebrows. Plus, with the shape of the wand, it doesn’t evenly touch all of the lashes at the same time, so it gives a very natural and feathered kind of look to the eyelashes that I absolutely adore. I will say though, if you do want to add more volume to the lashes, you will just need to wait for your first coat to dry and then go in with a second and it will look much thicker with no clumps.

The last thing that I want to mention in this blog post is that I have noticed no transferring with this mascara. This is something that I never used to mention, but recently I have had quite a few flops with high end mascaras and they have transferred like crazy, so I am so happy that I have another staple in my collection that doesn’t. Throughout the day, I don’t have to worry about this smudging underneath my eyes or about it flaking onto my face. I know that neither of these points are really a huge issue, but when I am using my La Mer Foundation, I don’t want anything to transfer onto that bad boy.



As a side note, I just want to add that this mascara is easy to come off. All I have to do is take a makeup wipe and gently rub it over my eyes and with my Clinique remover it is even easier. Again, this is something that I don’t usually mention, but my Benefit They’re Real Mascara is a pain in the ass to try and get off and it can even get a little painful, so I thought that I would just give it a quick mention here in this post.

Anyway, I will leave this post here for now. I think that the L’Oréal Lash Paradise is a really stunning mascara and it does a great job at lengthening and lifting your lashes. I know that this is going to be a staple in my makeup collection for a very long time and it is rivalling my Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for the top spot of my favourite mascara. I will leave a link to this product down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried this mascara and what you thought about it, if not let me know what your favourite drugstore mascara is!

  6. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Sadly it's not available yet in my country. I wanna give it a whirl once it's available since it's pretty similar to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, right? I have yet to try that one too. My favorite drugstore mascara is definitely Maybelline Magnum Volum' Express Waterproof mascara :D

  8. MERRY CHRISTMAS, FRIEND!!! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. :) P.S. You're not the last one to try this mascara. I still haven't! Your review was great. I might have to test this one out. I especially like that it comes off easily with a makeup wipe! Nothing annoys me more than spending lots of time taking my makeup off at the end of a long day. Haha

  9. This is such a good mascara. It's actually what I prefer over the too faced mascara it's meant to be a dupe for.
