I love this mascara. It's my HG mascara but in Finland it's really expensive - about 18 euros. That's why I only buy it when on sale for about 11 euros. It is really intensive black and it lenghtens my eyelashes well but doesn't really add any volume. That's fine by me since my priority is to get well separated long lashes. I like the wand, it's the best I've tried so far.
If your looking for lashes that stretch a mile high then this is the mascara for you! Definately lengthened my lashes more than any other mascara I have tried! It also didnt flake or clump for me, it wore very well through out the day! My only complaint is it didnt volumize much leaving my legs looking a little spidery..but if i am looking for a lengthening mascara this one is the best I have found so far!
By far one of my favourite mascaras. I have tried everything out there and this one gives me long, seperated almost falsies-like lashes - with a hold. I've had my first one for about three months now and it's time to repurchase. It's rare a mascara is just as good after three months as it was brand new, but I tell ye, this one I'd almost say is slightly better this old! I have to buy a new one because of bacterias, though.
This is by far my favorite mascara and as long as its available I don't think I'll ever use anything else. The lashes on my outer corners are significantly lighter colored and point in all directions, while the rest of my lashes are normal. With the other mascaras I've used in the past, which was normally volumizing or fusion Covergirl LashBlast but have experimented with countless others, I would always find that either the brush couldn't reach all of my weird outer lashes or the formula would wouldn't stick
to them. My attempts to coat these lashes usually resulted in clumpy, crunchy mascara build up.. The Telescopic Explosion mascara caught my eye because I thought maybe the different brush was worth a shot. The first time I tried it, it did clump horribly and made a huge section of eyelashes stick together, as other reviews have said. But, I wanted to like it, so I wiped the excess off the brush with a wet wipe and tried again. I'm so glad I gave it a second shot because it immediately coated my annoying outer lashes right down to the root without clumping. It grabs every single lash, gives them
very natural looking length, fans them out with great separation and definition,
and adds a good amount of fullness. My eyelashes always look very soft with no smudging, flaking, or brittleness, even after 10+ hour of wear. I usually do 2-3 coats. It does take longer to apply than most mascaras because of the different brush, but it's well worth it for me.
My mom bought this mascara a while ago, and I just got around to using it. I hate it. Sure, it gives you great length and the packaging is adorable, but it clumps like nobody's business. Every time I use it, I have to wait a good five minutes for it to dry so I can waste another five minutes running an eyelash comb through my lashes. All in all, I would never recommend this mascara to anybody. Even my enemies.
This didn't provide enough volume and it actually made my sparse lashes look thinner. Wouldn't recommend for people with sparse lashes... I need more volume!!
I am a mascara slut! Ichqnge which mascara I wear everyday. Know I wont. I don't wear makeup besides mascara and a lip product sometimes since I'm only 14. I have shortish thin lashes. My best guy friend came up to me and asked me if I did something to my eyelashes and he is the least observant person I know. I LOVE this mascara! I honestly don't know whats with all the negative comments. I don't even curl my lashes.
Hands down the BEST mascara out of ALL drugstore or high-end mascaras I've ever tried (MAC, Dior Extase, Dior Show, other various L'oreal and Maybelline mascaras). I'm usually not a fan of anything that isn't a traditional mascara brush, but these thin plastic bristles cover all my lashes. Absolutely NO flakes, lengthening, very darkening (not necessarily thickening though but it works out!), and able to apply as many coats as you want, little to no smudging either throughout the day. I will most likely never turn to another mascara again, I've finally found the one!
Really like the ball-shaped applicator tip. Can apply mascara to the corners of my eyes without touching loose skin. Skipped mascara before because it was hard maneuvering the usual long wand, but this round tip works for me!
Bought this back in August, when Rite Aid was selling it for $3 a tube. Got the Carbon Black, and was disappointed -- the formula was super thin and while it lengthened my lashes, did absolutely nothing in terms of volume. Fast forward 5 months: I left the mascara in my makeup bag, and it must have dried out a bit, because now it lengthens without the "thinning" effect. I'll use it up, but won't buy it again.
