If you peeped Monday’s post on How to Sweat-Proof Your Summer Makeup Routine then you knew this post was coming. A new, waterproof mascara that I can actually get down with? Why, yes… yes it is. Keep reading to learn more about the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara!
what is it
The L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara is described as being their “first mascara for voluptuous volume and length. The soft wavy bristle brush holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing charge.”
There is a regular version and a waterproof version. For this review I was sent the waterproof version, so that is what I was able to test and what the review below is based on.
before & after
Below is a shot of my lashes with nothing on them (left) and then with two coats of the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara (right). There is no lash primer or lash curler used.
Generally I’m no fan of waterproof mascara. It doesn’t seem to do anything for me or my lashes. BUT this new mascara from L’Oreal does ALL the things for my lashes… lift, curl, volume… plus it stays on through anything yet still removes easily (not as easy as non-waterproof, but easier than most other waterproof mascaras I’ve tried). I’m currently using the Up & Up Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover to remove all things eye makeup. I saturate a round cotton pad and press that pad to my closed eye for a few seconds and then I swipe the product away. To remove this mascara completely I just do that one more time.
With one coat I get a nice, natural lash look (which I’ve been going for these past few days because it’s been so hot and makeup has been very minimal), with two coats I get some more oomph and with three coats I get that drama I’d want for a night out.
