Makeup time. I have to say, I am one of those people that just loves spending a lot of time even doing the simplest of makeup looks. I love trying out new products and fangirling over old ones, but my newest discovery and love of my life – no seriously, I think I may actually be in love with it – is the Loreal Lash Paradise mascara. Now, I’d heard lots of good things about this including that the formulation was similar to Too Face’s Better than sex mascara and omg it is all of the good things people have been saying and so much more.
Seriously, guys, this mascara has within the space of a week become my all time favourite mascara because it gives such intense volume and length but without even the tiniest amount of spider lashes. It just makes your lashes completely full and fluttery and personally just how I love my lashes to look.
The brush is an absolute dream, it’s ultra soft and coats lashes with a silky smooth formula, enriched with lash-loving castor oil which is what makes the lashes feel so soft and fluttery and not at all flakey [insert hands in the air emoji here].
But it’s not just me that is majorly fangirling over it, in a recent study, 90% saw intense and volumised lashes, more than 98% saw a lengthening effect and 91% agreed that it didn’t flake. Pretty damn impressive Loreal!
In case you couldn’t already tell, I absolutely adore it and for me is the final touch to finish off my makeup and pull the whole look together.
Because it doesn’t matter if you’re about to see your gal pals in a couple of hours, a good ole natter and catch up is always necessary right? Once I’ve done my makeup – or usually half way through making me late but whatevs – I nearly always end up on the phone to one of my favourite girls which usually ends up in tears of laughter. For me, nothing makes me happier than laughter and friendship and surrounding yourself with the people who matter most to you. And yes I am totally aware that it’s cheesier than the Camembert I’m about to demolish as a breakfast snack but this really is my kinda paradise!
So now I’ve finished talking about my favourite moment of paradise (can I please crawl back home into bed and arrange a girly brunch rather than being in meetings please and thank you?) it’s time to wrap this up. Its funny really, that I’m writing this in amongst a pretty hectic and stressful day but just talking about my favourite things has brought a layer of lovely, calm, zen over and made me realise that maybe I need to prioritise the things I love a little more than just being a complete and utter workaholic.
Anyway, workaholic or not, one thing that I never want to stop working for me is the Loreal Lash paradise mascara because right now it is genuinely my favourite thing in my makeup bag and one item that I am begging you to run out and try (because you will love it, thank me later). It just instantly coats the lashes and makes them thicker, longer and fuller in a matter of strokes… Lash paradise!
