If you’ve read y previous blogs, you’ll know how much I love L’oreal. So for me, this blog is hard because I hate to criticise a product from such an amazing brand. HOWEVER, I can’t be anything but honest when it comes to beauty reviews, especially when it comes to value for money.
So I’ll start there. The price of L’oreal’s Lash Paradise Mascara is £11.99. Considering this is a price closer to high end brands, I expected a similar quality. This has always been a very popular mascara, but maybe I’m doing something wrong because I can’t see why!
My instant impression was that the product seemed clumpy around the spoolie, because brush fibres are so tightly packed. This makes the application difficult because it feels like you’re placing the product onto your lashes, as opposed to combing it through. This gives the impression of clumpy lashes.
The product is also quite thick and lumpy, despite being advertised as ‘smooth and silky’, which meant I had to fan my face just to get the product to dry. I’ve never had to do this before! Overall, in spite of all the hype I just cannot love this product. I think maybe the hype was due to L’oreal rarely bringing out new mascaras, or perhaps the nice packaging. I do have very short lashes, so perhaps it works better on longer lashes looking for volume, but for me this is a no go. Hopefully I haven’t been too savage, and if you’re interested in mascaras that I do love, check out my blog Mascara, Mascara and More Mascara!
