Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara.
Ok, so basically Italy has done a bit of a mess with this mascara. When the Lash Paradise came out in the States, in Italy arrived the Paradise Extatic which was absolutely identical apart from the name.
Then a couple of months ago, they came out with an actual Lash Paradise which essentially means we have the same mascara out with two different names. I remember really liking the Paradise Extatic when it came out so I wanted to try this version to see if it was different.
I got the waterproof one because it holds my curl better (I always use WP mascara for that reason).
You can buy it from Ulta for 10,99$.
The packaging of this mascara is really nice and the fact that it comes in a cardboard box makes it feel more high end than drugstore.
The spooly has an hourglass shape and it’s made of soft bristles, but it picks up a little too much product.
The formula is not too thick or too liquidy and it’s very black if you are not careful it tends to transfer on your lids when you apply it.
I have very long lashes and I find that at the end of the day I have little dots under my brows where the mascara has smudged a bit.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I do two coats to get the best results but if you like to do more you can definitely build this mascara up without the spidery effect. Overall I think two coats are more than enough the get the best result.
This mascara is very lengthening and volumizing. It’s slightly clumpy but I love the way it looks on my lashes.
I find that it holds a curl beautifully.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
Despite being waterproof, I find it not too hard to remove with an oily cleanser and micellar water. If I am patient I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

I really like this mascara. The formula is volumizing and lengthening, it holds a curl beautifully. I don’t like the pink and blue combo of the packaging and that fact that I get the dots on my eyes at the end of the day but to be honest, it’s not easy for me to find a mascara that works on my lashes so I put up with it. If your lashes are shorter you won’t have this issue.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
