Description from ulta.com

Application:

The brush is quite overwhelming since it’s big. However, when using it it grabbed the lashes pretty well although the inner corner lashes would need a little more care.


Putting this on the lower lashes was not too hard either but would be best to work slow since it could touch the skin a little bit because of the big wand.

This didn’t clump up despite the wand so thumbs up for that!

Price

Despite being a drugstore product, this is not yet available in the Philippines so I got mine through my friend’s online shop @beautyindulgenceph for 650 pesos (additional shipping fee but she handed me mine so I didn’t have to pay extra). 

A little expensive for a drugstore mascara but considering the shipping from america to the philippines that’s not to bad. Also, mascaras here in the Philippines ranges from 150-700 for drugstore mascara so that’s still reasonable.

Color payoff:

Yes it truly is blackest black. That’s all that I have to say about it.

Lengthening and volumizing properties:

10/10 for length and volume! With just one coat, you can see the difference and I instantly fell in love with it.

Left eye with loreal lash paradise, right without.

See the difference? I looked like I was wearing a very natural looking falsies. ♥️


Here it is on both eyes 

Longevity

I wore this on a particularly rainy day and I had to commute on a 2 hour traffic in a non-airconed jeepney and on top of that I had to walk 10 minutes under the rain since there were no tricycles. However, I was wearing a hood and I had an umbrella to keep my dry.

I wore this around 7am before I went to work looking like this.


And after 12 hours (I got back home around 7pm as well) looking like this


You can see it held the lashes pretty well. It was also lightweight and my eyes were not itchy through the day.

I tried the smudge test and wow! It still stayed put. Bonus points that my lashes felt soft and natural unlike other mascaras where it would feel stiff.

Removal:

It was easily removed by makeup wipes then facial cleanser. I didn’t have to tug and have a separate remover just for it. So thumbs up!

Overall thoughts:

My favorite mascara was heroine make long and curl which I also reviewed. (Click here to see my review). And I still love it but I think I love lash paradise more.

This doesn’t need an extra mascara remover which makes it cheaper than heroine make and gentler to the eyes since i don’t need to rub it. Heroine make also tends to have fall outs since it’s fiber mascara and that’s such a pain in the eye; And suddenly you become a helpless person while lash paradise feels much more comfortable and less irritating to the eyes.

If you could, get your hands on this baby.

If you’re in the Philippines, I recommend buying from @beautyidulgenceph on instagram. She’s a good friend and she’s a good seller (delivers quick, easy to talk to, reasonable prices).
