Product Review: L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise
Just a few months ago, beauty bloggers of all sorts were raving about L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. Now that I’ve used it on myself and clients for a while, I’m ready to share my review.
I’m a sucker for watching beauty videos on YouTube. Heck, I even started my own channel not too long ago! I love learning about new products. So when just about everyone and their mother was blogging and vlogging about Lash Paradise, I picked up a few tubes from Ulta.
The mascara is sold for $9.99 at Ulta, and I believe that price is pretty standard at other stores. Here are the details of the products:
L’Oreal’s first mascara for voluptuous volume and length with even more black pigments
Soft wavy bristle brush holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing change
More than 200 bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect
Smooth glide formula provides silky volume in one extra black coat
Lashes are feathery soft to the touch
91% of women saw intense and volumized lashes and 87% saw more beautiful lashes
More than 98% lengthening effect
Voluptuous volume and length
Soft wavy bristle brush
More black pigments
This mascara is over-hyped. When I first started using it, I was impressed. Then after a week or so, I realized I wasn’t in love with it. It works – but it’s not amazing. It definitely makes your lashes longer and more voluminous. However, it gets clumpy and it also flakes. There is nothing I hate more than when your mascara leaves little black dots underneath your eyes throughout the day. I despise looking in the mirror and seeing that.
So again, this mascara is good – I would give it 3.5 stars – but due to clumpiness and flakiness I can’t say it’s my favorite.
