Best mascara ever! L’Oreal Lash Paradise

L’Oreal added a new product to their line, and it’s the best mascara I have ever tried.  And believe me, I’ve tried dozens – from $4 to $30 a tube, waterproof and washable, I could never find my “holy grail” mascara.  Until now, my go-to products have been Jordana’s Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara and Maybelline Volum’ Express, “The Rocket”.  I alternated back and forth between these two products, primarily because *they stay on!*  With most mascaras, I find that I have under-eye smudging by mid day and raccoon eyes by evening.  Both of these mascaras stay put and look good, but I wanted a product that would add more length.

Best Mascara: L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara

A few years ago I tried a mascara that gave me lots of length and great lashes, but it just didn’t stay put.  I loved the look – until it smudged (horribly).  That product was Better Than Sex Mascara from Too Faced.  I hoped to find a product that would give the same long, thick, doll-eye lashes and stay on all day.

L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara Brush

L’Oreal’s new Lash Paradise Mascara is it!   Lash Paradise is clearly a dupe for Better Than Sex…  it comes in a very similar frosted pink tube and has the same soft, hourglass-shaped brush.  The formula adds delicious length to your lashes – and it doesn’t flake or smudge.  It’s by far the best mascara I have found, and it’s less than ten bucks a tube!  Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below.  (And if you have a favorite mascara you think I should try, please include that in your comments, too!)
