I may have mentioned, in my June Favourites, that I had found my holy grail mascara, nothing else compared, I was never going to buy a different one again etc. etc. Well I was all about that until L'Oreal Launched a mascara in rose gold packaging and like the cliche blogger that I am, I needed to buy it. 

The Paradise Extatic mascara promises to give you voluminous lashes with a feather-soft feel. I love a thick spidery lash and always have done. I will never be one of these one-swipe-and-I'm-done sorts, I'm all about layering and layering. I love any mascara that can layer without being overly clumpy or go flakey throughout the day. Paradise Extatic ticks all the boxes with regards to layering and achieving a full lash look.

The brush is thicker, with soft bristles that coat the lashes well. I must say, the shape does make it slightly more difficult to coat the shorter lashes in the inner corner.

It's been compared to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, however in my opinion, it's waaaay better. I loved the finish and formula of the BTS but it melted down my face and smudged every where. The L'oreal offering gives a very similar finish without the smudgy mess! It does still transfer to my upper lid, but in my 21 years of make up loving, oily skin, hooded eye life I'm still yet to find a mascara that doesn't. 

I can't wait for them to release a waterproof formula for this range, so I can have all the benefits of this full lash look but with a curl too!

Just as a heads up, I'd get this mascara whilst it's on an introductory price of £9.99 instead of £11.99 full price - which is very pricey for a drugstore mascara I must say.
