Love this mascara, especially with the L'Oreal lash primer. I actually had a strange experience between the different shades, and found blackest brown to be my favorite. I could just be absolutely crazy, but I did not care for mystic black at all, and blackest black was just OK compared to blackest brown. Gives full, long lashes that last all day on me. My only gripe is that the tube seems to dry out rather quickly, but it's really not $$$ to replace.

I had to see what all the fuss was about and I bought blackest black in washable. It did smear a bit on application but no flaking with easy removal but...
LP gave me some volume but not much length, even when I used a second dip into the well, it just stuck my lashes together in a disheveled way
For an experiment I put this on one eye and CG Clump Crusher, (which I don't use as a stand alone mascara), to see the difference and the only difference was that the LP eye was clumpy and CC held my curl better. No, It's not the best mascara ever, not even close.

Well, I just got my replacement in the mail for the previous tube that I actually *used up* (this doesn't happen much for me), so I you know I'm happy with it. This isn't an "industrial strength" concealer, but it's fabulous for days when I'm when I'm wearing little or no face makeup to just take the edge off my very purple undereye circles. I'm ~NW15, and this is a great match for my skin, while being slightly brightening. It's got a creamy liquid consistency that's easy to blend in. The dispenser is one of those brushes where you turn the bottom to propel the product, which works fine for me.

I'm really happy with this product--it does just what I need it to do.

Sorry, nothing even close to the "higher end" mascara-you get what you pay for and I'm ready to shell out for the real deal-this is dry, flakey, a disaster to remove without tugging and ripping lashes (waterproof version) nothing special for my lashes-THE one item we are supposed to be stranded on an island with... thank God I'm not on one with this...

Crme -L'Oreal - True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup

I ran out of my Physician's Formula compact makeup and thought I'd try this.

Pros: convenient packaging, average pricing, lots of shade choices.

Cons: transfers onto everything. very drying, collects in creases, not long-wearing, not enough product.

I wouldn't repurchase this.

I don't understand the hype for this mascara. It clumps my lashes and once applied, it balls up. It also flakes off during the day. I dislike the brush and find it too thick to get a decent-looking application. I tossed it in the garbage after trying to make it work for a month.

I thought this mascara was great at first, it works well and made my lashes look voluminous. But within AN HOUR of applying this I noticed that every time I wear it, I end up with smudges under my eye brows and under my bottom lashes. It looks terrible and it was so annoying to wear all day and constantly wipe the mascara off of my eyebrow area. Yet when I went to take it off, it took quite a bit of rubbing. Really disappointing, ive never had a mascara do that before.

Okay, so most of my favorite YouTube gurus are praising this mascara, and currently I have the Better Than Sex mascara in my beauty case, so I of course had to try this as it is hyped as a 'dupe'. Well, I am sad to say this did not perform for me like I would have hoped. I have a couple of issues with it. First off, it smudged. I have found that I have to clean up my eyes multiple times during the day, which I hate worrying about. Second, it didn't really have the build -up power I like to see in a mascara.

Now, that being said, for a drugstore mascara I thought it did deliver a fluttery feathery look- and I loved that. I love how deep of a black it is, and it just looks deep black all day. Once on my lashes they looked good, but again, the smudging during the day was a problem. To be fair I should say I have extremely oily skin in the T-Zone and it affects a lot of make-up. I haven't heard much other complaints about the smudges, so maybe that is due to my oily skin.

Overall, though, a drugstore mascara nearing $10.00 isn't exactly a bargain. My holy grail of drugstore brand up to this point has been Maybelline Colossal (in the yellow tube) and I will go back to that for drug store brand. Plus, I can usually find it for under $6.00. For middle-end i am absolutely obsessed with the Lashcraft by Sephora. It runs about 12 bucks a tube, and I love it. For a high end flutter look I will stick with Clinique or Too faced.

But this Lash Paradise...... nahhh................ in fact, I bought it at Ulta with a buy one get one half off and I have already given away the second tube to a friend. I won't be wearing this mascara once I finish up the tube I have.

Bottom line is while it's a decent enough drugstore mascara, I'm not in love with it and it basically just lives in my purse for "emergencies." Its very dry and flakey and doesn't do a good job of defining the lashes or seperating them. It's saving grace is I'm not allergic to it and I'm allergic to many mascaras. I'll stick to another mascara when I'm really looking for nice lashes

Unfortunately, for me this is overhyped! It’s kind of a mess on my lashes. It just sort of sits there and doesn’t define them, it also clumps badly when I try to build it up. It’s even worse on my bottom lashes. I expected more, but at least it wasn’t too pricey. The best mascara I’ve tried lately is Lancôme Monsieur Big - I’m going to stick with that even though it’s more expensive.

I am writing a review for the color Everlasting Caramel. this is HG for me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color. Though it has the word "caramel" in its name on me its more of a pink. It stays on all day and brightens up my face. Definitely worth a try.

I recently found my HG mascara (CG Full Lash Bloom) - if I didn't have that I would have liked this more. This does a similar but not quite as good a job because at defining and separating my lashes. I think the difference is this one is a wetter formula where as the Lash Bloom is drier, which I'm finding I'm preferring. Probably won't repurchase but only because I've found my HG - otherwise this was a pretty good alternative.


Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof

At the first few tries with this, I really did not like this. Maybe it was too wet for me. I've liked it better a couple weeks. I like to have defined, separated lashes, but still very natural. This mascara was a bit clumpy and wet for my liking. It's okay but definitely not worth the YT hype. i really like the pretty rose gold packaging but performance is not worth a repurchase. My favorite mascara is natural defined lashes is Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom.


Mascara -L'Oreal - Double-Extend Beauty Tubes in Blackest Black

I virtually gave up on mascara until I found this one.
I was the one who ALWAYS had my mascara on my face and not on my lashes by the end of the day.

This is a 180: I wear this all day and never have an issue.

It is a tubing mascara and has a base coat you put on before you apply the mascara itself. The base adds volume and perhaps some length, too.

My lashes are straight and defy most curlers, so I am pleased that at least it adds volume.

Removal requires and oil or a good makeup remover. I use an oil cleanser and a warm washrag with no issues.

I did discover that it is important to let the oil do its job, because if it's not coming off well, you can accidentally remove lashes wrestling with it.


I have never used a tubing mascara, so I have none to compare, but this one has been a stellar performer. I would buy again.

Thanks!

Liquid -L'Oreal - Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

L'Oréal pro-matte foundation is one of my favorite matte drugstore foundations. It's easy to achieve a nice flawless finish with this foundation. It's not heavy but it is pigmented. I've found that the L'Oréal foundations can be a bit tricky to match. I'm 104 in this foundation and an NC 25-30 for MAC. Usually these foundations run too yellow or too pink for my liking but mixing or experimenting will help.
