The €17 mascara that's winning awards left, right and centre

Mascaras can be hit or miss.

We’ve lost count of the number of mascaras we’ve bought over the years only to be left utterly disappointed.

From not giving enough volume to creating the dreaded spider-lash, getting the right formula can be a tricky one.

However, when we heard there was a dupe for the incredible Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and it came in under €17, we were very excited indeed.

Not only is this mascara said to be the perfect dupe for the so-called ‘best mascara in the world’, it’s also won a whole host of awards to prove it.

When Refinery29 announced the winners of their Beauty Innovator Awards, it was no surprise this mascara made the list.

L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara is making a great name for itself, not only winning ‘The One-Coat Wonder’ award with R29 but also winning awards from O Magazine.


The mascara is said to give “intense volume and spectacular length” thanks to its ultra-soft brush and silky-smooth formula.

Enriched with castor oil, the product is said to leave our lashes feeling feather-soft and even better - NO flaking!

And coming in at just €16.49, it’s not too hard on the bank balance either.
