L'Oreal Paradise Extatic Waterproof Mascara Review & Comparison

L'Oreal Paradise Extatic Waterproof Mascara

Having small hooded eyes and being a person that isn't particularly savvy about fake eyelashes or lash extensions, mascara is an absolute must have. It is a product that instantly opens up my look and makes me seem more awake and put together. Mascara wise I'm always looking for the next best thing. My lashes need to look like they're going to outer space and they need to stay there, all day. I have the original L'Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara but for some reason it didn't really impress me. It got lost in my makeup collection, never to be seen again - until L'Oreal decided to send me their newest edition: the waterproof version. I feel as if they knew I wasn't convinced and they wanted to try me again. The L'Oreal paradise Extatic Waterproof Mascara has the exact same look as the first one except that the tube is blue which, to be completely honest, I'm really into because it makes it very obvious what the mascara is for and what it is supposed to do!

The brushes on both mascaras are identical, L'Oreal calls this their soft brush, which I assume is for a smooth and easy application. I'm not particularly crazy about it but it does coat my lashes really well. When it comes to mascara brushes there are some varieties that I make more of a mess with simply because of my eye shape, thankfully this waterproof formula is easy to remove with just a cotton bud, after the product has had time to dry. Many waterproof mascaras aren't as cleanup-able, which can definitely ruin an entire eyeshadow look, so I'm very happy that this isn't an issue here!

I tried this mascara for the first time on my insta stories and I have to say that I definitely did not expect to be as impressed as I was. Now that I've had time to wear it for a couple weeks I can most definitely confirm that this Paradise Extatic Waterproof Mascara is quite a gem. I haven't had lashes this voluminous in a while, they also look very thick and long! Formula wise, you have to keep in mind that this is dry mascara. I'm someone who loves wet formula mascaras more than a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g but I've been converted to what's dry and it honestly blows my mind.

Having tried many L'Oreal mascaras in the past, I didn't think I could get even more excited about a new formula, but I have. The Paradise Extatic Waterproof mascara is really dope and I definitely recommend it. Compared to the original Paradise Extatic mascara, I think this is better. You're getting great voluminous looking lashes, that don't flake and will actually last until you decided to remove it. Think about it, it's already starting to get rainy over here, who's gonna be your new waterproof makeup bestie?

  1. Gurlllll these pics are sooo bomb! I was thinking of trying a new mascara as I was getting a bit tired of my Clinique High Impact. I was thinking about trying Rituals but now I will certainly give a try to L'Oreal, it looks amazing!
