L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara VS. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I am fairly certain that the majority of the population has heard of the iconic, best-selling mascara Too Faced Better Than Sex.  But have you heard of L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara? Well, it is BRAND NEW to Ulta and drugstores across the nation.  What's strange is the striking resemblance between these two products - they look nearly identical, down to very similar brushes.

However, L'Oreal is $10, while Too Faced is $23. So the real question is, do they perform the same despite the glaring difference in price!?

The simple answer? No, they don't perform exactly the same.

The shocking revelation? I think L'Oreal's is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!

Yes, you read that right. I prefer the $10 mascara to the $23 one! Crazy, right!?

The major difference is in the formula - L'Oreal's mascara is lengthening, curling, and volumizing, while Too Faced only promises length. They are both a drier formula, when I definitely prefer a more wet and glossy appearance, but the L'Oreal mascara performs so well, that the drier formula in this case doesn't perturb me.

I know people rave about Better Than Sex but I have never been the biggest fan because it doesn't work for me the way it seems to work for others.  It definitely has the more luxurious feeling packaging, a little heavier with raised embossing... but the L'Oreal mascara... Well, YOU tell ME what you think of its performance:

No flaking, no smudging, no clumping.  It is awesome.  If I had to rank it against the other drugstore mascaras from the battle (you can read that HERE), I would honestly put it second, after Covergirl's The Supersizer mascara.

Have you tried either? What are your thoughts?  What other mascaras do I need to try? Leave it in the comments below! XOXO
