This DS Diva has always been very open and honest about her eternal love for Lancome Definicils mascara. I’ve been using it for decades and adore how it makes my lashes long and full. Lo and behold, L’Oreal recently debuted a ‘dupe’ for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which I’ve used but have never been overly impressed with.
Combining sales, coupons, and Walgreens’ Rewards, I purchased L’Oreal Lash Paradise for about $3. This mascara is like wearing false eyelashes without the hassle of the glue. My lashes were gorgeous, very long, and extremely plush. Even at the full retail price of a whopping $9, this mascara is a steal! The only drawback is that, at around 6 weeks the applicator and tube started to clump and get very messy. I had to clean both before and after each use. So I’m just wasting product, which I utterly despise. I hate not getting a full 3 weeks out of mascara.
Will I give up my tried and true Definicils? Absolutely not! Will I try another Lash Paradise, especially if it’s on sale? There is a 90% probability that I will. Lash Paradise also comes in a waterproof version for those of you who perspire and cry (Darth’s do neither BTW). But I feel those versions are too drying to the lashes, so pass on that I will.
The Dark Side Diva’s verdict on L’Oreal’s Lash Paradise mascara: Give this one a chance, you will be pleasantly surprised!
