Lately, the L'Oreal Paris Lash Paradise has been incredibly hyped on Youtube, especially in America, which left me dying to try it but we've only just recently been able to get our hands on it in the UK. When I placed my American haul, I picked this up but it was available in Boots/Superdrug by the time this arrived in the UK.

I'm pretty sure I haven't tried many if any L'Oreal mascaras but I couldn't resist seeing if this was worth the hype.

I don't have a lot of eyelashes because I rub my eyes far too often and in general, my lashes are quite short. This isn't usually the style of mascara wand I would go for because this usually tends to leave my eyelashes very clumpy and that's a look I just cannot pull off.

A lot of people have mentioned that unless you comb your lashes before hand it does make your lashes clumpy and I definitely agree. Obviously, any mascara that clumps your lashes is super annoying and never normally something I would use again, but I don't mind remembering to comb my lashes before application for the look I achieve using this mascara.

I found this mascara to really lengthen and give a curl to my lashes which is exactly what it claims to do! The mascara also contains castor oil which is supposed to help your eyelashes grow - if this works, it will definitely be my holy grail mascara!

The only downside of this mascara which I've found is you have to work quickly if you want to apply more than one layer as it's quite a fast drying formula which is perfect for those people who are one-coaters but means more effort for those who like to layer it up! The second downside is I found it started to break down on my lashes and left black flakes after wearing this for a prolonged period of time!

Honestly, for a drugstore mascara, this is definitely worth the hype and has become a regular in my makeup routine. Drugstore brands are 100% stepping up their game.

Have you tried this mascara, do you like it?


  1. I recently just brought this mascara and I still don't know how I feel about it. I was expecting bigger things if I am honest, but I do like it still.

  2. I've heard so much hype about this! I think I'm gonna have to pick it up x

  3. I love the look of this mascara, even the packaging is gorgeous! I really need to try this and the lash sensational, only hear good things about both! Good to know about remembering to comb your lashes first though, I would never have thought about doing that!

  4. I really love this mascara, and I actually don't find it goes clumpy on my eyelashes at all! It's definitely a great dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex!
