Better Than Sex Mascara Dupe: L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara


Better Than Sex Mascara Dupe: L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara

If you have not heard already, there is a drugstore dupe for the Better Than Sex mascara. I repeat: THERE IS A DRUGSTORE DUPE FOR THE BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA! In this post, I’m doing a quick review on the new L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara, along with some side by side comparisons between the two mascaras.

The Better Than Sex mascara is an amazing product (click here for my full review on the BTS mascara). It is a game changer if you have short, broken lashes. The only thing not so great: the price. A tube of this is $23 at Sephora, which puts a dent in the wallet considering the amount of mascara someone typically goes through. That’s why the world went a little nuts when L’Oreal came out with a dupe mascara.


Right off the bat, you can tell there’s a difference with the packaging. The BTS mascara is a lot bulkier. The BTS wand is longer, but they both have a similar brush.  As far as the formula, the L’Oreal Lash Paradise is more on the wetter side. Even though they are slightly different, they make the lashes look virtually the same.

If you have shorter lashes, you may want to opt for the waterproof mascara since it holds the curls better.



If you have longer and thicker lashes, this is what your lashes would look like with the mascaras on.

Bottom line: I love them both, but I actually prefer the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara more than the BTS mascara. Not only is it more affordable, I think it does a slightly better job at making my lashes look thicker. You can find this mascara at your local drugstore. Prices range from $8.97-$10.00.

Have you tried out these mascaras? What do you think?
