Reviews for L'Oreal Paris Makeup Lash Paradise Mascara, Voluptuous Volume, Intense Length, Feathery Soft Full Lashes, No Flaking, No Smudging, No Clumping, Mystic Black, 0.25 Fl Oz (Pack of 1)
People say Loreal Paris is really similar to Too Faced.
Ooo so far so good I wore it for one day
It didnt irritate my eyes and my go to mascara is too faced better than sex mascara, also loved bites mascara but it dries out too quickly. This gave me good length with one coat and volume with the second coat. Def worth the dupe! I haven’t removed it yet so idk how difficult that will be but it lasted through a work shift 🤘🏻
The waterproof formula is swimproof!
One of my top concerns is that a lot of mascaras won’t hold the curl in my long-ish but straight lashes. This is one of the few that does a great job at this for me. And, it really is waterproof for swimming - even soaking wet and rubbing my eyes multiple times throughout a swim to “squeegee” water off my face leaves my lashes perfect. No smudge, no flake, and the original curl I had before getting into the water is left intact at the end of the swim (in cold water - no hot tub expeditions yet). I am so happy with this product! I have sensitive eyes and with this I get no irritation. In terms of application the brush gets every lash and lengthens. It’s not too wet or heavy of a formula so it dries quickly and holds my curl, and I have no problems with clumping (the formula is just how I like it.) A smudge mistake if taken care of quickly, can be removed with a wet qtip. For removal, I use Dior’s duo express instant eye makeup remover for sensitive eyes and it gets every bit of it off in under a minute per eye and without harsh rubbing. (I am heading into my 50’s and have aging skin and increasingly sparse eyelash and eyebrow hair so kind/easy removal is very important to me.) Yes, with the right remover in hand, this wins in the removal department too. My favorite drugstore washable mascara is Cover Girl Professional Remarkable smudge proof/washable (purple tube), and my favorite high end is Dior, Diorshow Black Out. If you like these other two mascaras that are my every... Read More
Compared To 'Better Than Sex' by Too Faced,
Long time BTS user. Just bought lash paradise for the first time. BTS is certainly a superior product but not by much. It layers better and applies thicker compared to lash paradise. That's mostly it. This formula also dries a lot harder which makes it less prone to smudging. You can sleep in this stuff and most of it will be there in the morning. In conclusion, I'll probably use this product as a permanent BTS replacement because I love BTS but cannot justify +300% price increase for a ~ +10% improvement. 4/5 stars overall, but 5/5 stars for a drug store brand.
Great lengthening waterproof mascara
Great lengthening waterproof mascara for the value. Hold up to some of the high end makeup. I would say this is a dupe for Too Faced “Better than Sex” Mascara. Try it , you won’t be disappointed!
Best Mascara I've Tried Yet
To start, I've tried many high end mascaras such as Lancome Hypnose Drama, Benefit They're Real and Rollerlash, Too Faced BTS, Urban Decay Perversion etc, but none of them compare to this mascara. I have monolids so I have the straight Asian lashes that never holds a curl no matter what... until I used this mascara. This mascara volumizes, lengthens, and holds a curl for most of the day with minimal to no flaking/smudging despite the Texas heat, humidity and my oily lids. Example, this mascara survived a trip to the zoo in sunny 90+ degree weather with high levels of humidity and sweat. Not even one flake or smudge! Even when I don't curl my lashes, this mascara makes it look like I did. Also, it's pretty easy to remove with my holy grail Lancome Bi-facil eye makeup remover, but other oil-based removers should do the same job. I suggest using a cotton pad w/ remover and letting the remover sit on the lashes for a bit to help break it up so you won't have to rub your eyes too much if you have difficulty. To sum it up, I really love what this mascara does for my lashes and for the price. Update #2 5/6/2018: Bought this mascara for the third time and product has stayed consistent in performance as the first and second tube. However, I must note that at least for me, the mascara lasted about 4-5 months before starting to clump and dry out (dipping into the mascara 2 times every use). Specifically, the formula is still noticeably wet albeit drier than when first opened, but has n... Read More
This has converted me from more expensive mascaras!
I am a woman with a fair-to-porcelain skin tone and extremely sensitive skin. I purchased this mascara in "blackest black" in waterproof. I have to say this has completely outperformed my expectations. My eyelashes look beautiful and I was able to achieve the same result that I get with mascaras that are at least 3x the price. I'll include the brands I have previously used below in a set of asterisks for those who are interested in which brands I'm comparing with this L'Oreal Lash Paradise mascara. This mascara has a nice thick formula, went on evenly with little-to-no clumping issues, and is "blacker" than I expected (which I love). The brush doesn't grip as well as I'd like (Tarteist mascara is a stand-out brush for me in terms of ability to really grab-and-coat each lash) but with a little extra effort it turned out fine. My lashes don't feel brittle after the mascara dried, I had no flaking, I had no skin/eye irritation, and it lasted all day. And since I wore this in the rain and didn't turn into a mascara-streaked mess, the waterproof formula must be great too! I'll be buying this again and giving up on my beloved Tarte! ** For reference, I used Dior's Diorshow mascara before switching to Tarte's Maneater or Tarteist. I love Tarte's mascaras more than any I've ever used, including Too Faced's BTS mascara. The only sticking point for me is that neither the Maneater nor the Tarteist come in waterproof, causing me to develop workarounds (like adding a quick, last-second l... Read More
Comparable to Too Faced
This is probably as close to BTS by Too Faced as you are going to get from a drug store brand. My only complaint is it tends to get a little clumpy and there is always excess mascara on the brush when you pull it out of the tube.
Favorite drugstore mascara
I have used both this mascara and its more expensive original counterpart, Too Faced Better than Sex. I honestly like both of them a lot. There are a few subtle differences, and I'm still trying to decide whether Better than Sex is worth the $23 versus the $8 for lash paradise. I think they both layer on really well, for multiple layers of application. However, I do find that Better than Sex clumps a little bit more and as a result, delivers thicker looking lashes, but definitely has more of a clumpy look. I'm generally okay with the clumpy look, but I know a lot of people don't like that. Lash paradise does not clump as much. I also find that Better than Sex flakes a bit throughout the day, whereas lash paradise does not. As a result, I think lash paradise has a better long term wear during the day. I like that lash paradise has different colors. Sometimes I prefer a brown mascara to a black one depending on the season or my outfit. So again, I like both mascaras, and I'll continue to use both. Probably designating Better than Sex to more of a nighttime mascara for heavier application, but for short-term wear due to the flake factor. Lash paradise works for a less heavy lash look, but good every day use for work, daytime, etc. I will say that lash paradise is my favorite of all drugstore mascara brands, and in general, I love most L'Oreal products.
