It’s rare for me to get really excited about a drugstore mascara. There are some good ones out there, but I still usually prefer high end options as I find they give me more volume. However, I was recently sent the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara * and I haven’t been this into a mascara from the drugstore or Sephora in ages!
This mascara has been getting a lot of hype in the beauty world lately, and for good reason. It is a great dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which is my all-time favourite! The packaging and brush are both similar to the cult classic from Too Faced and it performs just as well, in my opinion.
The formula of the Lash Paradise mascara is a bit drier than the Better Than Sex, but that was the only real difference in my opinion. The mascara gives me such great volume (better than any drugstore ones I’ve ever tried) and is quite lengthening at the same time. While the formula isn’t super wet, my lashes feel soft all day and don’t get crusty.
The formula layers well too so it’s easy to build up for more dramatic lashes, which I love. I don’t experience smudging with this mascara and only minimal clumping on the lower lashes but that’s easy enough to get rid of if it happens. All in all I’m super impressed and I still can’t believe it’s from the drugstore!
I think everyone needs to run out and buy a tube of this mascara – you won’t be disappointed!
