So after raving and reviewing about the new L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara in my previous post, I had to put it to the test! I wanted to compare it to my 2 current favorite mascaras in my rotation. I’ve tried dozens and dozens of mascaras both high-end and low-end. For me, a great mascara will give me big bold lashes and hold a curl all day! My lashes are really straight with no natural curl so I use waterproof mascara to keep them curled once I use my lash curler. I’m always on the hunt for the best waterproof mascara for curled lashes!
The new L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara gave my other 2 favorites a run for their money. So I thought why not compare my lashes side-by-side-by-side with all 3 products to see for myself. Again, I tried the waterproof formula for each to compare. I wanted to see which one gave me the most curl and gave me the best look overall.
I first fell in love with Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara because it had a similar wand to the Benefit Roller Lash but was more affordable! Roller Lash was great but I didn’t want to keep spending the money. Mascara is one of the products I go through the quickest and use almost everyday so I knew that would start to add up. The wand is curved which helped amp up my lash curl.
My only beef with this mascara is that the formula started to get really thick and clumpy the longer I had it. The wand would have tons of product on it and instead of the formula becoming more dry overtime, it just started to get goopy and thicker which made it really hard to work with.
So I moved onto Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara and this was my current favorite before Lash Paradise. I really love plastic wands which is what this one has. It really helps to separate my lashes and does give a lot of volume like the name indicates!
I did a full review on the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara. If you want more information on what I liked and didn’t like about it, you can read about it here.
Here is a close up picture of my lashes with each mascara.

Seeing the side-by-side comparison, I definitely think that the L’Oreal Lash Paradise is my favorite! From the pictures, it definitely gave my lashes the most volume + length. I think the Rocket Volum’ was a close second. It’s hard to see much difference between the two but I do think my lashes look a little bolder, fuller and longer with the lash paradise.
The lash sensational didn’t even compare! It definitely doesn’t do my lashes any justice and makes them look brittle and feathery. I guess if that’s what you want your mascara to look like then that could be a good thing. But for me, I don’t think it makes my lashes look as good. I will say that the tube I used was pretty old so a new tube could have looked better. However, I still don’t think it would look better than the other two.
My final verdict is if you are looking for the best waterproof mascara for curled lashes, then you need to go with the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara! It’s definitely my new favorite and a staple in my mascara rotation now.
