A few days ago I talked about L’Oréal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in an Instagram post. The truth is, I meant to get this post up days – fine, weeks – ago. But, life happens – so, here I am. Now, let’s talk shop, shall we?
I take my lash game very seriously, so when it comes to mascara, you can bet my standards are hella high. But actually, if I could only leave the house with one makeup product it would be mascara, hands down (and that’s saying something, given my obvious love/need for bronzer).
So here’s the scoop – I’ve been using L’Oreal’s Voluminous mascara line for a few years. In fact, when it comes to drugstore mascara, the Voluminous line is my go-to. While the line has seriously expanded, I’m all for the OG (and sometimes Carbon Black, if I’m feeling real frisky).
So why Lash Paradise? Well, it was the brush that piqued my interest. It’s similar to Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara brush in that it’s shaped in the same way. The result? Full, fluttery lashes. I will say that in terms of formula, Lash Paradise delivers exactly what you can expect from a Voluminous mascara. It’s not too wet nor is it too dry (that’s what she said, ba-dum-tss!). In fact, it’s got the perfect amount of tackiness and there’s no fallout either.
While I will say that it requires a couple of coats to achieve ~maximum impact~, this is something I find to be fairly consistent across the board when it comes to drugstore makeup products.
My final verdict? Welcome to the mascara fam, Lash Paradise.
