Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara
Bought for: P500 from an online shop
I love mascara so much. Much more if they can withstand my oily lids and don't wear off quite fast. I have tried a lot of drugstore mascaras (the only ones I can afford lol) and most of them made me look like I've cried hard enough that my mascara got washed away down to my waterline and bags. It's uncomfortable to rub my eyes when I had mascara on so I'm pretty sure that isn't exactly the reason why mascaras smear on me. I'm 100% sure my oily lids are the culprit. But it's not like my lids could adjust, right? Technically, it's just finding the right makeups to complement your skin type. I'm glad I tried this latest from Loreal: Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara. You might not read this whole blog anymore because by now, you might've figured out that this is a great product for me. Though I suggest you keep on reading still because I have to point out a few things you wouldn't want to miss about it.
The last Loreal product I was obsessed with (until now) was the 24H Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation and this is my next holy grail. The mascara reminds me of the famous Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in terms of that sleek blush pink packaging although given the price point, I would still say the Loreal's much better. I could get 2 of this and would still be able to save a few bucks.
I know you are very familiar with drugstore mascaras, mostly the ones from Maybelline and Loreal because most of the time, they come in washable and waterproof forms and even comes in different shades of black and brown. I got the waterproof formula and in 204 Blackest Black because I love long-wearing, bold and voluminous lashes. I just wish I can get the washable formula too on days when I don't feel like dealing with tough to remove makeups haha!
The wand is long enough to pick up product from the bottom so you can ensure there aren't any waste. I don't know why if maybe because this is a new product, but the formula inside are still more liquidy (but not runny) than other mascaras I have bought before. You can tell because the formula is still shiny black and is easier to apply. The short and well-distributed bristles surely help to avoid clumping and having those spider web-like lashes.
One coat is enough to get bold yet natural-looking lashes. Unlike other mascaras that would only dry after a heck lot of minutes, this mascara dries just almost as instant without any weird mascara scent.
This product isn't exactly waterproof as it claims. Sure, it's really hard to remove on the lashes even with eye makeup removers so it must be really a long-wearing product. It also doesn't get completely washed off when I do a quick dip in the pool but it tends to smear. That doesn't make it waterproof. Although I have to commend its longevity because even when I sweat and my lids oil up, the mascara pretty much hold the curl firmly and does not weigh it down. It doesn't smear too on dry surface and that's what all that matters especially it's a pain to find makeups that would put up with my oily skin.
The wand of this mascara almost look like BTSM's though the latter is more curvy. I like that it's long though because it reaches even the tiniest of hair on my lashes. I'm just so glad this product exists! If you want to achieve voluminous lashes without spending a fortune, this should be your go-to. Although this won't replace the length and volume of falsies, it's a perfect mascara for every day use.
