L'oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara - Product Review

Monday, February 12, 2018


Image result for lash paradiseLike many others, I originally bought this product as a dupe for the Two Faced "Better than Sex" mascara, which I absolutely love.  Many have claimed that this product is almost the same or even better than "Better than Sex." Let me emphatically express... it is not. I had such high hopes for this product. I liked the pretty packaging, the hourglass-shaped brush that I fell in love with from "Better than Sex," and of course, most of all, the price. At $8.00 a unit, it is significantly cheaper than "Better than Sex", which is priced at $23.00 (ouch). Unfortunately, this just did not impress me.  In fact, I have never loathed a makeup product more. The instant I put this on my lashes I never wanted to use it again. It clumped my lashes worse than any other mascara I have tried, and irritated my eyes for the rest of the day. It felt heavy and flaky, even though it was a waterproof formula. My lashes also refused to hold a curl with this mascara, and there is a strong chemical paint-like fume that is so over-whelming that it made my eyes water before the brush even touched my lashes. I simply cannot express my disappointment with this product enough. This was a complete waste of money and I can not wait to throw it away and start putting money aside to just go ahead and buy myself a full-sized tube of "Better than Sex."
