First impressions: L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara

I’ve been wanting to try out the L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara for a while, so I decided to write down my first impressions.

First impressions

It has a rather large bristle brush/wand, but it’s quite easy to use. The mascara claims to give your lashes both volume and length, and I think it does. It holds the curl too. It’s easy to remove from the skin with a dry cotton bud without ruining the eye shadow, and it’s easy to remove completely with regular make-up remover, which are both huge plusses in my book. It only transferred a little unto my eyelids throughout the day, but it really wasn’t too bad. All in all, I really enjoy this mascara, and it’s probably the best mascara I’ve tried other than my favourite Maybelline The Falsies mascara.

Pops of colour

Purple and peach
