My Favorite Mascara – L’Oréal Paradise

Hey friends, welcome back!

Today, we gon talk about beauty.

More specifically mascara.

Now for me, I’m very picky when it comes to mascara (also I’m picky with brows. If you want to know what my favorite brow product is, let me know in the comments below :)). I like length. I like volume. I like

Do lashes give you definition? I don’t know lol. I want my lashes to blow you away (literally) when I bat my eyes.

So for those who don’t know, or do know, drugstore makeup has been stepping it up and been giving higher end makeup brands a run for their money. For you makeup fanatics out there, you may have heard of the L’Oréal Paradise mascara is an excellent dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Possibly due to their striking similarities and performance.

L'Oréal Paradise Mascara

I’ve never tried the Too Faced mascara, primarily because I don’t see the point in spending 20-something dollars on mascara when I can get one just as good (if not, even better) for $9. Not saying that higher-end products aren’t good, there are products out there that work beautifully. But if people say the Paradise mascara is a dupe for the Too Faced one, then I’m sold.

I bought the Paradise mascara a couple of months ago because of the hype and two words: Game. Changer. This mascara has everything that I want.

The length.

The volume.


And only $9! That’s a deal if you ask me. It has become my holy grail mascara and I have not tried another one since this discovery. I don’t plan on trying out new mascara when this one offers everything I want.

I HIGHLY recommend this product for those who are curious about it and have been meaning to get their hands on it.

Here are before and after pictures of how this mascara looks on my lashes.

My lashes before and after

I don’t know about you, but there’s a significant difference after mascara is applied.

  • Rica K.

    Lip gloss is the one piece of makeup I can’t live without.

    • Yissel R

      Oh wow, any favorite in particular?

  • crystalwangg

    This mascara looks stunning on you!! Your lashes look so full and lifted.

  • Marxie

    There is indeed a significant difference! Is this a fiber mascara?
    A make up item I can’t love without? Definitely lip products!

    • Yissel R

      No it’s not a fiber mascara. It’s like any other mascara but magical.

  • Shelbie (9to5hiatus)

    Definitely trying this. I see the similarity between the Better Than Sex one. Doesn’t hurt to try a cheaper alternative!

  • Elisha

    I love that the price is budget friendly. And you really can tell the difference.

    • Yissel R

      I think it’s totally worth it and the price. You can’t beat that!

  • westelevenlane

    I totally agree with you!! Can’t get myself to spend $20 on this stuff. I’ve been using L’Oreal mascara since before Kim K’s makeup artist recommended it! They do a great job. Love their eyeliner too.

    • Yissel R

      You’ve been ahead of the game girl!

  • Jani V

    I love lash paradise too, and voluminous as well. The only downside for me was it dried down a little fast in the tube. Looks great on you BTW

    • Yissel R

      Yeah it’s a thick formula so it does dry down a bit faster but it’s still great. And thank you!

  • lovelylydiaandlilac

    I really want to try this mascara! I am a huge fan of Too Faced, but I’m trying to save money. Next time I need mascara, I’ll try this option!

    • Yissel R

      If you want to save money, this is an amazing mascara to try out.

  • itskathrynjane

    I absolutely have to try this mascara.! I can’t live without my Mario badescu rose water spray, it’s just so refreshing.

    • Yissel R

      I’ve heard so many great things about that spray. It must do wonders.

  • I received this mascara for Christmas and it’s a total game changer, I agree!! I also have the primer, something I’ve never before, and I really like it both with or without!

  • Veronica

    Wow! That mascara looks like it works wonders! I don’t know if we get it in South Africa yet but fingers crossed we’ll get it soon! xx

    • Yissel R

      I hope you do so you can try it out 🙂

  • Becky L Duncan

    This is great! Thank you for doing the digging for us! My can’t-live-without-it beauty product is eyeliner. Or lip gloss. Whichever one I’m NOT wearing is the one I NEED. 😉

  • Julie

    Oh my goodness, I switched to this mascara 2 months ago and I’m.never.going.back. It’s fantastic! I’ve never tried another mascara like it.

  • Theresa Marie Daily

    Wow! This is a total game changer! I’ve used the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and this one looks exactly the same with the same results! Awesome dupe for it. Your lashes look so good! (:

    I need to get another tube of this mascara! I really like how full and voluminous is made my lashes, but I did notice that it dried out super quickly. All in all, I still really liked it!

    • Yissel R

      Yeah that’s the only downside but I think it’s so worth it compared to the Too Faced mascara.

    I’m always looking for mascaras that give me all the things you’ve mentioned before and, after seeing your before&after pic I would DEFINITELY give this one a try. Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Yissel R

      Thank you so much. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 🙂

  • Claire

    Not an expert on makeup but it is interesting to see how big a difference they can make to our appearance 🙂

    • Yissel R

      They really do frame the face a lot as our eyebrows do as well

  • Margriet

    Wow, that looks like a very good mascara! It makes your eyelashes look so big and beautiful!

    • Yissel R

      Thank you! You should definitely try it out 🙂

  • Lesley

    The Loreal Lash Paradise is my absolute all-time fave as well! I love the volume and length it gives my lashes 😍

  • Aline

    My favorite one is the one from Clinique. It’s a bit more expensive but it lasts for almost half a year and your eyelashes are looking absolutely amazing 💜

  • Lesley

    I LOVE this mascara! I’ve always been in love with the Loreal Miss Manga Rock, but after trying the Lash Paradise, I love it so much more (which is a good thing because they discontinued the Miss Manga Rock)

    • Yissel R

      Phew! Imagine if you didn’t like it. I’m so glad you love the mascara!

  • skylarelizabeth

    I definitely can’t go without mascara either! Never leave the house without it 🙂 I’ll keep this stuff in mind for when I don’t have lash extensions anymore!

    • Yissel R

      I’ve ALWAYS wanted eyelash extensions but for now, this mascara will do just perfectly.

  • writingsandworship

    I’ve heard so much about this mascara! I really need to try it. Those before and after photos convinced me! And I love drugstore mascaras. So affordable!

    • Yissel R

      If you ever see it, I highly recommend you try it out.

  • Tami

    Ooh, I’ve never tried this mascara but I definitely need to! Your lashes look so good! 😍

    • Yissel R

      You totally should! Thank you for reading! 🙂
