This new L’Oreal mascara has been all over the internet. That’s probably because the packaging looks very familiar. It’s almost as if they didn’t even try to make this mascara different than the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. Being that the Too Faced mascara is one of my all time faves, I had to pick this up to see if it truly compares.
The packaging is very similar. However, the L’Oreal one is slightly smaller ad not nearly as heavy as the Too Faced one, which I like. The first notable difference is the price point. The Too Faced mascara is $24 and the L’Oreal is $8-$10 depending on where you purchase.
My favorite part about the Too Faced mascara is the formula. It is a dryer formula so you can really build it up to get the desired volume.
As you can see, the Lash Paradise has a pretty similar wand as well. It is just slightly smaller. I think this allows you to really get into the lash line without making a mess.
So, is it a dupe?!
Honestly, I think I love it more than the Too Faced one! The wand is perfection. Not only does it provide insane volume, the wand also allows for separation and fullness of your lashes. I like the packaging better, the formula better and you can’t beat the price point! Not sure I will ever spend $24 on a mascara ever again after trying this! (side note: that probably isn’t true but I’m trying to convince myself) I don’t have any cons with this mascara and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a drugstore alternative!
