L'Oreal Paradise Mascara: Worth The Hype?

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

I've jumped on the bandwagon and caved into testing this new L'oreal mascara that everyone's been talking about. And it's amazing. Like really really amazing. It's on a par with my beloved Maybelline Lash Sensational that I've non-stop been using for a few years now. It's just incredible, so I thought it's about time I did a proper review on it.

I've been using this for a few months now and I'm on my second tube. Although it does dry out a lot quicker than mascaras I've it's a really good product. It costs £11.99 which I think is pretty good for a mascara because these days you can spend well over £20 for some of the higher end ones.

The mascara wand itself is absolutely amazing. I was weary at first because the shape of it wasn't like any other mascaras I'd seen but it works insanely well. It might sound odd but the wand is really strong so manages to push your lashes up a lot to make them look longer. The mascara is really black too so it makes my eyelashes really stand out which is just what you want when it comes to mascara.

The only thing I don't like is that it dries out quickly and the packaging scrapes off really easily. I keep all my makeup in my draw with dividers so it's not like it's being thrown around a makeup bag where it can get scratched easily. But the pink colouring still scratches away really quickly and ruins the way it looks. That's probably super pedantic because it obviously doesn't change the overall performance of the mascara but it does irritate me a little bit. 

Overall, I'd 100% say it's worth the hype. I can just tell it's going to be one of those mascaras I keep coming back to and re-purchasing. I personally think it's really good value for money despite it drying out after around 2 months of continuous usage.

Have you tried it yet? What are your thoughts? Also, I'm enjoying doing more of these short review style posts, what do you think?

  1. I've heard amazing things about this and I really want to try it. I'm currently testing out the Baby Roll Mascara. I'll add this to my list next. It does suck that it dries up quickly as I don't wear mascara everyday x Nikita
