I like this mascara but I’ve used better. I got this as a gift for Christmas (it came in a box with the primer included) and I was supper excited to try it! The packaging and color draws you to this mascara plus I love a lot of L’Oréal makeup. So here’s my opinion on it I know every has different opinions so don’t get offended if you love this mascara!! I’ll also tell y’all about the primer since it came with it.

1.Cute bottle.
2.Love the hourglass shape of brush.
3.the size is perfect for my eyelashes.
4.its a dry formula.
5.the bristles aren’t to long or short.
7.gives my lashes length and volume.L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Washable Mascara

1. It can clump easily if your not careful so don’t let dry before applying another coat!!
2.i feel like I have to apply a lot before all my lashes are covered and to get them the way I wanted.
3.mascara smells like sunscreen.

The primer definitely makes my lashes look fuller but it’s kinda weird to put a WHITE primer on my lashes then put black on them.. I don’t use the primer all the time..

I have a love hate relationship with this mascara. I have this in the shade blackest brown which I do love! It is a nice alternative to always have such dark mascara and I think the hint of brown pairs nicely with a lot of eye looks. The first time I used this mascara then I absolutely loved it but after I continued to use it a few times it seemed it was making my lashes clumpy and spider like. I took a break from it and went back a few weeks later and it worked the same way it did the first time I used it. When it makes my lashes look long and full then I love it but on the days it applied so clumpy I didn’t like it.

I bought this seeing a bunch of people claiming it to be a dupe for Too Faced better than sex mascara. This was under ten dollars at walmart, easy to find and easy to afford. The brush is hour glass shaped and really catches all your lashes. It's easy to build but also can get very clumpy if you aren't careful. I use a second, clean,  mascara brush afterwards to sweep through and separate my lashes a little better. The formula leaves my lashes looking longer and so much thicker. The formula does weigh a lot of the curl out of them though. When they say waterproof boy oh boy do they mean it. I can cry my eyes out while wearing this stuff and my mascara won't budge one bit. That's nice and all but removing it can be a massive pain unless you use actual make up remover.  This really makes my eyes pop however and for the price I'd rather use it than better than sex any day

I am not usually one to fall for hype, but having such short straight lashes, I am always up for a mascara that everyone is raving about and it so happened to be on sale and I had credit at my local drugstore, so I figured what the heck.

It definitely added significant volume to my eyelashes. It dries down to a more matte than shiny finish. I'd say after two coats on top and one on bottom, I was very happy with my look.

As far as being waterproof, I just so happened to need to cry the day I first wore it, on top of allergies just wrecking all my makeup EXCEPT this mascara.  My only qualm it was tricky to remove, like most waterproof formulas are, you're going to want to use an oil based remover. There was minimal flaking.

So, yeah, the hype was worth it..but I also happened to buy another L'oreal mascara that same day that I love even more (Magna, but that's my style)  So this is definitely a quality mascara, it gives you volume without fibers poking out. Definitely a good basic mascara to keep in your daily kit and that is why I am giving it 5 stars. 

Note: I did curl my lashes before I put this on, and I highly recommend this if you're lashes are straight like mine, as this is not a curling mascara.

I really like this product as I am on my second tube. Now.. I may have found others too that I will add to my collection.See my blog exploringmakeupinmy40s for mascara challenge. I think this is a great everyday kind of mascara. Not too much glam but just enough to make you feel good. It lasts all day does not smudge or flake until it starts to dry out around 3 months. Sometimes it can be clumpy so you have to work hard at making sure it is smooth on the lashes more so than others. All in all I like it!  For the price it is a keeper!

This is probably one of the best mascaras I've ever tried. I'm on my 4th and it's been 2 months. My Holy Grail is a good mascara. This is it. It's better than anything that you've heard of. The bottle is beautiful so I'm loving the packaging. It's a pretty rose gold. Now....the waterproof is really waterproof! I mean this thing won't budge regardless of weather... whether it's humid outside... it does not matter. It won't budge at all. If you have oily Lids this is the mascara for you. The black color is very black I haven't tried blackest black... I've tried black and it is amazing. It's so pigmented. It does not flake. The wand separates each Lash which leaves your lashes equally coated and separated. It doesn't Clump up at all. If you have tiny little lashes this will give you length. It will also give you volume. It will make you look like you have falsies and that is amazing right there for a mascara.

I normally do not purchase waterproof mascara but decided to go with this one since so many YouTubers had it in their 2017 favorites video. I love the brush and look of the mascara, but you really have to be careful with the layers of this mascara. I like my mascara to be very noticable, almost borderline spidery looking. One coat of this is not very noticable, but adding on more layers the first time made all of my lashes clump together bad and because of the waterproof formula it was near impossible to separate. Luckily the second time went a little smoother, but I do not add more than 2 layers for this reason. I will say the benefit of this mascara is it does not smudge so it makes for the perfect lower lash mascara. Just have an awesome waterproof makeup remover on standby!

Many say this is a dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, and while I do think it makes my lashes look just as good, it definitely does not stay as well! At first, when it was new, I loved it and had no problems. But then after a week and a half it began drying up and causing problems. I have oily eyelids and dry under-eyes and after about two hours of wearing this to school it had smeared all over my eyelids and settled into the dry patches and texture under my eyes. I’ve never had this problem with any other mascara. In addition to that, I was constantly having to check in my mirror because it kept flaking off and falling into my eyes! It’s a shame because I loved the price and the way it made my lashes look, but I’ll be sticking to my Too Faced mascara.

I really love this mascara, I think its even better than most highend mascaras I've tried before, now onto the pros and cons

pros- gives volume and lengths your eyelashes, great brush/great application method, feels really light on your eyes

cons- can clump easily 

I do recommend curling your eyelashes before using this mascara, although it does give a slight lifting effect, its best to just curl it so you won't have to worry about it afterwards. Another thing I noticed was that when you first start using the mascara, a whole lot of product comes out, making it much more likely to clump together, after a few uses that gets better!

When this mascara first came into the market I was curious as to how it would work. My friends purchased it and swore that it was much better than "Better than Sex". I noticed their eyelashes become significantly larger and more full with the mascara. I ended up purchasing it and have used it a total of 2 times. I am just not as impressed as others are. It applies nicely and gives a good amount of volume and length, however, I feel like other mascaras gave better results. I recently applied one layer of this mascara and it was barely noticeable. I am open-minded to continue giving this a try but so far my first impression was "meh"
