L'Oreal Paradise Collection - Is It Worth The Hype?

I first spotted this collection rearing it's head through US beauty bloggers social media channels and from the rave reviews, I couldn't wait for it to hit the UK! I was initially only aware of the mascara being released but during my Superdrug sweep, I saw a collection of 'Paradise' products which swiftly ended up in my basket. It's always exciting when the drugstore comes out with new products and it's even better when they rival the higher end brands. The question is, is it worth it? 

The mascara has to be first! I'm sure we all know that L'Oreal do some of the best mascaras on the market, so I was eager to try this one especially as every person who's tried it has sung it's praises. I've used it every single day since I purchased it and it truly is amazing and in keeping with L'Oreal's quality mascaras. The wand is around medium size with a fibre brush and the formula is enriched with castor oil, (amazing for lashes!). 
I'll mention that this is the first mascara that has transferred when used on my lower lashes. I'm not sure what the cause of that is, but I had to resign this as my lower lash mascara and only use it for the top! That aside, it lengthens my lashes whilst also adding the right amount of volume. Whether you're looking for a new mascara or not, this is worth giving a go! 

I had no knowledge of this product until I saw it in Superdrug and I'm so surprised! How is this not shouted about more?! I mean, it's a direct dupe to my holy grail brow product Benefit's 'Ka-Brow'. That conclusion is based on the packaging and innovation solely as the formula is quite different. I got mine in the shade 'Brunette' which is the second darkest shade in the range. I'm so impressed with the components, the brush is super fine and stiff enough to create perfect brows. My stance on the actual pomade formula is that it could do with a bit of work. It's not as creamy as the pomades I'm used to and has the slightest waxy feel to it, but for a drugstore alternative, I'm happy with it. 

I know there is a kajal liner that is part of the 'Paradise' range, but I'm pretty stuck in my ways with eyeliners so it takes some top recommendations for me to pick up something different! 

What do you think of the L'Oreal Paradise range? Is it something you'd be interested in? I'd say the two products I've tried are definitely worth trying out and I hope this brow pomade is paving the way for other drugstore brands to create their own version!
