Take Your Lashes to Paradise | L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara | Review & Demo

Hey Beauties!

Out of the endless array of beauty products that exist today, almost every woman says the same thing when asked the question - what is your number one "can't live without" product? - mascara! No matter who they are, what they do or where they live every woman feels like a few coats of mascara can set them up for success, even without any other makeup. 

Well, I can't help but agree however, I know that not every mascara is made equal. Not every mascara will give you that instant wide-awake, doe-eyed effect with a formula designed to withstand any possible situation. 

Some mascaras just don't live up to the cause and none of us want to deal with the letdown every morning. Luckily, we don't have to! 

L'Oreal Legends

I have long been a big (more like mahoosive) fan of the L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara range, with their classic Voluminous Original and Carbon Black Mascaras being a constant must have in my collection. Over the years I have added every new release to my list of favourites - because L'Oreal just seems to ace each and every one - but this time they have seriously outdone themselves and released the best mascara I have tried in AGES. 

Launching Lashes into Paradise

L'Oreal's newest innovation comes in the Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ($9.99 USD/$13.99 CAD - 0.25oz), a truly incredible mascara that will take your lashes to the next level of heavenly.

 Pretty in pink, this beauty boasts fanned out, feathery lashes with the triple threat of intense volume, illegal length and dramatic curl. The smooth glide formula provides silky, sultry volume in 1 coat and ultimate drama in 2 with thickened, separated lashes.

Drier than the average formula, it adheres to each and every lash and combined with the hourglass shaped brush that has more than 200 bristles, it catches even the smallest of lashes to disperse the maximum amount of product. This means no lash is left behind, they are all captured for a full fringe effect. 

The incredible adhesion means there is no flaking, smudging or fading but lashes remain soft to the touch and hold their shape all day long.

The Dupe Down-low

From the frosted pink tube and the curvy shaped bristles to the dry formula and full, dramatic effect, Lash Paradise has been hailed a dupe for the ever popular Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. While I agree on the similarities and I agree that if you are looking for the closest option that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, this is it. 

I don't consider this a dupe, solely for the fact that I 100% think L'Oreal has outdone Too Faced and a "dupe" signifies something of lesser quality. If you are searching for a mascara that will give you bombshell, glam lashes then buy a tube of Lash Paradise not Better Than Sex. The formula is superior and the price is unbeatable.

How To Rock Liquid Lipstick That's Actually Comfortable | Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks & HD Lip Serum | Review & Swatches

How To Rock Liquid Lipstick That's Actually Comfortable | Make Up For Ever Acrylic Liquid Lipsticks & HD Lip Serum | Review & Swatches | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for what feels like the longest time. At first, only 1 or 2 companies offered the ultra-pigmented liquids that stuck to your lips like glue and dried down to a matte finish but over time those numbers have exploded and now you are more likely to find a company that doesn't have their own version. 

Formulas have improved, colour ranges have expanded and wear times have gotten longer but I have yet to find a formula that truly felt comfortable on the lips. 
Until now!

The Who/What?

Make Up For Ever seemed to take a little bit longer than the rest of the beauty industry to jump on board the liquid lip bandwagon and now we know why. All truly great things take time! 

It seems that they took that bit of extra time to create the first TRULY comfortable liquid lipstick that doesn't sacrifice performance or wear. Not only that but they created the perfect product to prep the lips for an even better experience.

The Ultra HD Lip Booster Hydra-Plump Serum ($29 CAD/$23 USD) is a hydrating lip serum that instantly preps and nourishes the lips for the application of any product. It can be used alone or underneath to smooth over lines and texture, plump gently and hydrate deep down. Containing Loofah Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, it glides on with a custom cushioned applicator and absorbs quickly leaving a non-sticky satin finish.

The Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks ($25 CAD/$20 USD) are the first pure pigment lipsticks that offer insane colour payoff with unbeatable wear-time and a truly weightless feel. 

They have a unique formula that somehow seems to nail every single aspect without sacrificing another. They have concentrated pigments that provide seriously saturated colour payoff with full opacity in one swipe and an ultra-matte (yet not desert dry) finish. 

The formula contains beeswax and avocado oil to nourish and protect the lips while keeping the liquid itself in place. It glides over the lips coating them in a weightless veil of colour but protects the skin underneath from all damage, drying or irritation.  

The Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks have a precise wand that makes application a breeze. It smooths over the surface of the lips, defining every peak and valley and depositing the perfect amount of colour. 

So far, there are only 6 shades in the collection (101 Cream Beige, 103 Warm Beige, 105 Rosewood, 107 Neutral Beige, 109 Praline & 203 Cold Pink) but they are all stunning! They are the perfect neutrals that you can rock on any day, at any time, in any place.

To top it all off, the Artist Lipsticks have incredible wear power that is said to be up to 20 hours. Personally, I have worn them for 12 hour days, eaten meals, enjoyed many coffees and at the end of the day, my lips look just as good as they did in the morning.

The How

To make your liquid lipstick last all day long and to ensure it feels good on the lips, try the Ultra HD Lip Booster and then top it with the lipstick of your choice. Apply a liberal amount and wait for it to absorb (just a few seconds) before applying your lipstick. Then enjoy a day of perfect looking lips without any of the dryness! 

Pin it!
