L'Oreal Paradise Mascara: YAY or NAY?

Over the last two weeks or so there has been a clear hype over the new L'Oreal Paradise mascara all over Twitter and Instagram. This honestly couldn't have come at a better time for me as I was in desperate need of a new mascara myself. Imagine my excitement when I walked up to the L'Oreal counter in Boots, Bluewater to see it was not only on promotion and only £9.99 and also included a free eyemask gift. It usually retails out at £13.99.

This post is a little shout out to the lady at the L'Oreal counter in Boots, Bluewater who persuaded me to get the mascara that day. As I had heard good things about it online, you can see how keen I was to try it.

The brush itself is long and the bristles are thicker on each end and thinner in the middle. At first I was unsure of the brush shape. I realised once I had tried it when I got home that by having each end thicker than the middle it makes for a more even, long and lustrous looking eyelashes.

I'm one of those people that cannot live without mascara, without it my face feels so wrong. I need my lashes to look long, dark and thick whenever I leave the house otherwise I feel naked. This mascara is perfect for those whose who feel the same as me, it gives the right amount of product on the bristles and onto your lashes with minimal effort. There are a lot of mascara's out there that are HARD WORK. Many make your eyelashes too thick and clumpy looking, not Paradise though. Never Paradise.   

I read a lot that this mascara is a good dupe for the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara, as I personally haven't tried that particular mascara myself I can't really judge or comment on it. However, having tried Urban Decay's Perversion mascara I can successfully state that this is a seriously good dupe for Perversion if you're looking for something a bit cheaper. The brush may not be the same as Paradise, but it definitely gives the same outcome: long and beautiful looking lashes.

It's 100% something you should be adding to your make up bag this season!
