If you’re a huge fan of L’Oreal Paris Voluminus Lash Paradise mascara like I am, then you’ll be thrilled to hear that the brand recently expanded the line.
I have previously reviewed this amazing mascara, but to sum up the reason why I love this product so much is because it’s pretty much an exact dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which is my all-time fave. I wasn’t the only one to love it and since it was so popular, in honour of it’s one-year anniversary, L’Oreal Paris has released an expanded range of makeup items to complement its all-star product.
Included in the Enchanted Paradise collection is an eyeshadow palette, a mascara primer, two eyeliners, and two blushes.
The Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette is filled with 12 mattes and shimmers that include nudes, browns, and pink-toned hues. The palette also smells like peach candy, which is a total bonus for me since who doesn’t love Fuzzy Peaches, amiright?
This palette retails for C$22.99 and contains buttery shimmers and blendable mattes, letting you create an abundance of different looks. I think that this palette is very versatile and you cam get a ton of different uses from it. I’m also super impressed with the quality of the shadows, especially the shimmers, since that finish is often hit or miss. These go on opaque and actually give you a flush of shimmery colour, which is amazing considering the price on this (Too Faced and Tarte palettes usually retail in the $50 range and often their shimmers just contain a lot of fall out and not much else).
Other expansions in the eye range include two liquid eyeliners, one in black and the other in rose gold (C$12.99 each). The Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner contains a flexible cone-shaped brush that allows you to create the perfect winged liner that stays on for 12 hours. Since this isn’t a pen liner, you may need to re-dip the product, but I find it gives you a deep black line that lasts on the eyes.
I’m really impressed with the black formula since it gives you a deep, dark colour. The rose gold was a miss from me since I wouldn’t wear rose gold by itself and I did find the shade to be very subtle, so I wouldn’t bother picking this up if you are fair-toned like me. It just didn’t really show up at all. If you have a darker skin tone, then I think this would look so beautiful on the skin.
Finally, to round out the eyes, they introduced a mascara primer to make those lashes even more amazing. The Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer (C$13.99) helps to thicken lashes with volume, as well as enhance mascara wear. It is also infused with rose oil so it helps to protect and nourish the lashes.
L’Oreal says this is pink-toned, however, it definitely looks white to me, which is what mascara primers are often coloured. I have been using this with the Lash Paradise mascara and like the effect it gives you. It’s definitely not needed, but if you are a huge fan of the mascara like I am, then I think it’s worth a shot to try out.
Finally, for the face, L’Oreal has come out with two peach-scented blushes to give you the perfect peachy glow. The Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush (C$18.99 each) consists of two peach-toned warm blushes; one that’s more nude (Bashful) and the other more orange (Fantastical). Although I do find these to be pricey, the pans are quite large, so these will last you awhile. Aside from the amazing scent, these go on smoothly and blend out nicely. There’s no harsh lines and they wear very well throughout the day.
So what items should you pick up? Well, obviously the mascara. I really love the eyeshadow palette although there isn’t really anything that special about it. It’s a great nude, everyday palette that applies wonderfully and smells awesome. I also really love the primer and the Bashful blush. The eyeliners are good, but with eyeliners, I do find it easy to find good eyeliners, so they aren’t really anything that truly blows me away. The wear on them is good and I found that the didn’t transfer or run.
Overall, I really love what L’Oreal Paris did with this collection. The whole scented thing is still in with so many brands introducing products that smell like peaches (or chocolate for that matter). With it being summer, this collection couldn’t have come out at a better time and honestly, anything that has the Lash Paradise name on it, I know I’ll love.
