I know I’m not the first beauty blogger to make this post (not by a long shot).
But I was really curious. After all, as a drugstore mascara skeptic, could this $10 mascara really replace the $23 icon?
Or maybe it was just a bunch of people saying “eh, it’s close enough.”
Either way, I was curious. BTS has been my go to mascara for full black lashes for a while now (I got it over the holidays), which was partly why I got Lash Paradise. I like to switch out my mascara after 6 months or so and I don’t like to have a ton of different mascaras open at one time.
So while I was still in the states, I searched for it at the drugstore.
In Whistler (this was actually released in Canada first), I ran from drugstore to drugstore trying to figure out where I could find this.
In the end, I found it at a drugstore where the display for Lash Paradise was placed below a display for Maybeline Baby Lips. It wasn’t until my second visit to that store that I saw it. When I did, I grabbed it in the shade 200 Blackest Black, and bought it.
Would it measure up to the cult favorite Better Than Sex mascara? I was about to find out.
