A little while ago I picked up a tube of the Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara after hearing pretty positive things about it online, but I was hooked on my Unlimited Mascara and it kinda sat in a drawer of makeup unloved for a few weeks. Eventually I cracked it open and gave it a shot, rotating it with my Unlimited Mascara.
I think I said in that review that I wasn’t a big fan of Loreal Mascara, and that I had struggled in the past to find one that I actually liked, so I hadn’t held my breath when trying it, and despite how much I liked it, I was still on the fence about Loreal mascara and wasn’t convinced I would like Lash Paradise. But I gave it a go anyway.
Lash Paradise has a large, soft bristled wand that is basically as big as your whole eye. The wand is slightly skinner in the middle giving it a curved, hourglass shape to it, although I don’t think has much baring on how it works. The shape makes it easy to coat the longer, outer lashes but can make it difficult to get to the inner corners or lower lash line because its pretty easy to bump it onto the skin.
As mentioned the wand is soft, natural bristled as opposed to the plastic bristles of the Unlimited Mascara so if you like a natural bristle mascara you might really like this.
Loreal claim this mascara to give intense volume, and spectacular length, claiming the mascara leaves you with feather soft lashes, and won’t flake.. But how true is that?
Honestly, I would give it major points for the length and volume, like I can’t argue, this stuff does really work but.. theres a but..
I find this really hard to work with, I find that it really clumps and you have to work hard to get your lashes to seperate, either with a spoolie or with a different mascara. I find it smudges and flakes by the end of the day and my lashes will slowly stick together throughout the day.
I don’t think I would repurchase this because of the effort I have to go to when trying to get this to look good, which is such a shame because when this goes right, the results are gorgeous.
As you can see from the before and after the results are amazing but I just don’t think its worth the amount of effort, of trying to seperate my lashes after the fact, or even during the application. I hate that it so often flakes and to be honest I’m not a huge fan of the want not being tapered, I like a wand that I can use to get to the inner corners and I think the wand on this makes it difficult to get to them and can often deposit too much product on the tiny lashes.
My Final Thoughts?
I don’t know, I’m so on the fence because its so good, but such hard work. I would recommend you try it for yourself if you like the results you see but I don’t think I personally would buy this again.
I hope you found this helpful. Have you tried it? Did you like it? Do you think you would try it based on this review?
Talk to you soon!
