I'm not quite sure how I feel about this product. I picked it up at Ulta on a whim because I was curious; even though I already have a holy grail mascara, it's not much for volume. A friend of mine owns both this one and the Too Faced Better Than Sex and claims they are basically the same; having seen both mascaras on her, I can agree they are pretty stinking similar. But she was blessed genetically with very thick, long lashes, while mine are long but not as full. On me, this mascara did not perform like anything really special. It's a little bit of a drier formula than I'm used to in a mascara, but by this point in my life I've come to realize that what makes a mascara different is its wand. This wand does resemble the TF one quite a bit, so check off that box. After two coats, I thought my lashes looked nice (I don't curl them, by the way), had a little more volume perhaps, but nothing particularly special. My current obsession is the Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant mascara (now there's a wand that stands out!) and this definitely did not beat alone. However, today I tried doing one coat of MUFE (for the lengthening effect) and then one coat of Lash Paradise (for the volumizing effect) and I'm *obsessed* with the results. I know most people won't be this crazy and layer two different mascaras, so my verdict for the Lash Paradise is just kind of a "meh." It's certainly not bad for the price, but it's also nothing spectacular like I was expecting.

I put in a lot of research when buying mascara and always purchase from the drugstore. This product has been raved about by literally every single person  that has tried it. I did not hesitate to purchase this product, but after months of using this product, I have found it absolutely just does not work for me. I have naturally curly hair, so find that my eyelashes hold their curls easily, but that is not the case with this product. At first application, my lashes look amazing, but after only a few hours, I notice that my eyelashes just do not look their best and are almost non-existent. I typically get complimented on my eye lashes because they are full, but this product just does not do it for me. I have not tried the waterproof, maybe it would work better for me. I don't know what it is about my eyelashes (maybe they are oilier than most), but this mascara (as well as it's dupe, Better Than Sex Mascara) just does not perform well. I find that they both flake and do not hold the curl.

After hearing so much hype on this mascara I decided to try it. I usually only stick with mascara I have used before so I was new to L'Oreal products. I have long, thick, and semi-curled lashes. I usually curl my lashes with a lash curler before I apply mascara. I curled my lashes and applies one coast of Lash Paradise and I totally understood why everyone has been raving about it! It thickens lashes without weighing them down, the formula goes on wet and drys fairly quickly, and it holds the desired shape of my lashes all day. I usually apply 1-2 coats. I have found that taking off the mascara is a little difficult though. I use a micellar water and it takes about 3 minutes for my lashes to be completely clean. Also, by the end of the day my lashes are ready for the products to be off and breathe a little. Overall, great product and glad I bought it. I'll be using it everyday!  L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Washable Mascara

This mascara is the bomb, as far as drugstore mascaras go. I found out about it through one of my favorite YouTube beauty influencers, Tati Westbrook, and I love it. It is no joke. When my other mascaras fail to add that umpfh that I desire, this one achieves it. It layers nicely with other mascaras and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and eyes. The blackest black gives me that dark carbon color I want. I have short and straight lashes and this mascara perks them up, colors them, and adds lots of volume. Definitely recommend it, love. ♡ (Side note: I agree with the other reviewers, it is a good dupe for Too Faced cosmetics's Better than Sex Mascara. I use to use their waterproof formula a lot. Heard original BTS is better than their waterproof though.)

I have been using this mascara for about 3 months now and it does meet my Lash needs. I've tried other pricier and drugstore mascaras, but I would always search for another one because I couldn't find one to meet ALL my needs, but this one does that!
I have been blessed with lashes that are a pretty good length, so I need a mascara that can add more volume and keep my lashes reaching for the sky all day long. I also need a mascara that doesn't smudge, being that my job requires me to work in heat and I get covered in sweat. I feel like this mascara fulfills those needs completely without getting clumpy, which allows my lashes to have a more natural look, which I like. However, when I'm heading out for the night, I find that this mascara is very buildable(don't know if this is a word lol) and I can work it up into a more dramatic eye.
The only complaint I have is that it won't completely come off with face wash alone. I do use an eye make up remover balm to get this off.
I definitely recommend this mascara!! 🌺🌺🌺🌺

This is definitely one of the best mascaras at the drugstore! I use this mascara when I want volume for days!! This mascara has a drier formula which I love and I think is so easy to work with. This mascara does not transfer or smudge and it holds a curl all day. I know a lot of people say this is a dupe for Too Faced Better then Sex Mascara but I definitely think that this mascara is a lot better then Too Faced's. Too Faced's mascara formula always tends to smudge on me while the waterproof version takes my eyelashes out, so this L'Oreal mascara has all the benefits of the Too Faced mascara but with a much better wear and longevity. It is easy to wash this mascara off and I never have problems with application. Definitely try this mascara out if you like dramatic lashes.

This is my Holy Grail drug store mascara. It's a perfect dupe for Too Faced Better Than $ex mascara. I love the brush, it really curls and separates your lashes perfectly. It doesn't clump at all. I usually do two coats and people compliment me and ask if my lashes are real all the time. I have very short, straight natural lashes so for people to ask if they're real when I'm not wearing false lashes, and only mascara is crazy! If you don't want to wear false lashes but still want long, beautiful lashes (or even if you do wear false lashes and just want that extra oomph) this mascara is perfect for you!

Review for: Black more...
I LOVE this mascara!!!! My lashes look so full and long! Naturally I have long but blonde lashes so you can't tell that they are long. I stopped wearing mascara for a few years and started to wear it recently. EVERY mascara I tried did NOT do my lashes justice until I started using this one! I started to question myself about my lashes falling out or somehow just got shorter over the years lol But this mascara made them look so full and long! My lashes never look clumpy with this mascara either! The only problem I have is it flakes off and leaves little balls of mascara on the high part of my cheek under my eye and it rubs off on my upper lid (I do tend to get slightly oily there so no big deal). I thought I could solve this problem by using the waterproof version but it didn't. Not only did the waterproof one rub off on my upper lid and flake like the non-waterproof version, but it's EXTREMELY hard to get off (as it should because it's water proof LOL). I even used makeup remover to try to get it off but I could still see it near the base of my lashes and I could also feel it ( I lost a few eyelashes that day lol). I followed up with face oil (that usually does the trick) but it didn't help. I had left over mascara on my lashes for two days lol The non-waterproof version, however, washes off extremely easy!!! LOVE this product!

This product is an exact Dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. I find myself liking it better actually because it isn't as hard to remove. It isn't a super wet, messy formula which I love in a mascara! The one is amazing for separating lashes and really getting mascara on to each and every single wash, creating a very full looking Lash. I love the powder pink metallic Packaging, it looks a lot like the two-faced better than sex. I usually apply a base coat and one extra coat to add the Lincoln volume. I found that if I add more than two coats and starts to Clump together and get sticky. However, two coats makes my lashes look amazing I wear false lashes 80% of the time and still use mascara to blend my natural lashes into the falsies and this works great for that without doing damage to my fake lashes. It also does wonders on my bottom lashes which I really like because often times I have to use a different mascara on my bottom lashes. Due to the effectiveness of this mascara combined with the low price point, I believe it replaced my Too Faced better than sex mascara!

One of the best if not the best mascara I have tried recently. I have tried everything from high-end brands like Too Faced to the classic stand by mascara by CoverGirl. This one does all the things I want without breaking the budget. It doesn't clump up, it holds a curl,  lengthens and volumizes. I have nothing bad to say about it. Added bonus, it seems to hold up pretty well for not being a waterproof mascara which I appreciate. It wipes off easily enough with makeup remover but doesn't run if you get a little bit of water on your face.

Does this mascara really volumize and lengthen your lashes without clumping? I've seen a lot of YouTubers rave about it but I wanted to know firsthand from regular consumers.
