Ok, so with all the hype around Loreal Lash Paradise being a dupe for Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, I had to put it to the test. I have been wearing these two mascara’s for the last two months and really paying attention to the results.

The Loreal Lash Paradise for $9.99 can be found at Ulta, and Too Faced BTS can be found for $23 also at Ulta.

Both mascaras have very similar packaging, as well as a very similar wand in both shape and size. I think both mascaras do a great job with lengthening as well as adding volume to the lashes. I have worn both of these for 16 hour shifts at work, and I have to say, after two months of paying very close attention, the Loreal holds up better under my working conditions without any smudging, flaking, or running.

I absolutely love both mascaras. As you can see in the picture, I have a back up of both. However, if I have to make only one recommendation, I would say……. Save a few bucks and buy the Loreal Lash Paradise. It performs just as great (and holds up better than) the BTS mascara for half the price. I will continue to use the Loreal Mascara for everyday use, and will use the BTS when I will not be working such long hours and sweating lol!
