If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, You’ll know that I have a very limited collection of mascaras that I actually like. I am always looking for a drugstore alternative to my favourite high-end mascara, Benefit Roller Lash…. And believe it or not, I think I’ve found it……
Welcome the Loreal Paradise Ecstatic Mascara! I don’t normally get on with drug store mascaras. I usually find the formulas way to wet or the brushes way too big. I have pretty small eyes so It just end up just getting it all over the place and it’s not a good look. I would rather spend the extra money on a decent mascara that i know that works then £10 on something that I will hate however I saw alot of this Mascara all over social media and everyone was going on about how amazing it was, So when I popped into Boots I thought it was about time I picked it up. It was actually on offer at the time for £9.99 which I though was a reasonable price for a drug store mascara, It is normally £11.99 so I think this is just an introductory price.
The main thing I noticed before I had even tried this mascara was that it feels alot better quality than other drugstore mascara’s. It’s rose gold for a start which is always a winner but the actual packaging just feels very luxurious. When I first opened this mascara and looked at the brush, I really didn’t think I would get on with it. It’s quite big which I normally don’t like and the brush it made of bristles (200 infact), Something I tent to avoid, but regardless, I gave it ago. To my surprise it actually did an amazing job at lengthening my lashes. The hourglass shaped brush coats each and every lash nicely and it didn’t clump at all. My eyelashes actually looked long and feathered in a really natural way. TheY didnt feel ‘heavy’ or ‘cakey’ to touch, they actually felt quite soft.
Now I’m sure you’ve seen people say that this is a dupe for the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Which I haven’t actually tried. But it is definitely on the list to try now if it’s similar to this one. It will be nice to compare the two.
Let me know if you’ve tried this mascara or if you’ve tried the Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara!
