This has been my favorite mascara for a few years. I had the gold tube before this one and loved that one too. My lashes look incredibly long when I wear it and I get heaps of compliments. I've tried many other mascaras and nothing compares.
I'm a mascara junkie. I love trying new ones and have tried many, although none over $20 - I'm on a budget! This is my favourite mascara by far and the best in it's price range. The special brush lengthens my lashes to an "almost falsie" length, and it does a good job curling them too. It normally doesn't clump, but if it does, I just move the brush over my lashes a few more times and it gets rid of the clumps. Anyone who is having problems with clumps may not be applying this mascara correctly. Several of my friends have been amazed when watching me apply this mascara and seeing the difference it makes - they went out and bought it too. It lasts a very long time (I've gone out and partied for hours and have then come home and slept with it on for 10 hours and my lashes still looked awesome when I woke up) and it doesn't smudge. Overall, the best mascara I have ever used!
Although I only gave 3 lippies, I would buy again. This really lengthens my upper lashes but I have SUCH a hard time applying this to my lower lashes. It gets all over my under eye skin, and is totally messy. Maybe I am applying it wrong? So, good for upper lashes - lower lashes not so much.
I like the tiny brush but the formula is too wet and thus it destroys my curl I put in with my eyelash curler and it ends up making my fine lashes look like less than they are, like I have fewer lashes than I have--who wants that? It does last well but it doesn't do much for my lashes overall. I won't buy this again because I know I can do better and let's face it, it wasn't free which is the ONLY way I would use this again.
The best thing about this mascara is the colour. I love very black mascaras. The formula is quite wet and I'm not a fan of that. I find that it volumizes more than it thickens, but it also clumps my lashes together. I really have to sweep the wand through my lashes to try and separate or else I end up with what looks like four thick lashes. I usually go over it with another mascara to define all my lashes a little more. It's just too tricky to work with, I won't be repurchasing.
Cancelled trains are the bain of my (credit card's) life, because I hang around Boots for half an hour at a time, pondering the best 3-for-2 offers, checking my Makeupalley app, putting things in and taking things out of my wire basket. On one such occasion I ended up with this, which was fanciful of me because the original Telescopic irritated my eyes.
This doesn't at all, and neither does it flake. It lasts as well as my favourite mascaras - Diorshow Extase, Clinique High Impact, Estee Lauder Sumptuous. It lengthens very well, but does clump on application, so needs agitation to seperate lashes. I find the brush most tedious, and have on occasion used a different mascara wand, which is a pain but overcomes the one negative aspect of the product.
I love this mascara. Its super easy to apply lengthens my lashes and prevents clumping i will definetly keep buying! :-D
I was actually in love with the gold tube in this. I had both the gold and silver tube of the telescopic mascara. I was looking for the gold tube which I couldn't find but stumbled upon this in a black tube. To be honest I didn't expect it to be decent as it is. It gives major length, and is able to hold a curl and is exellent at seperating lashes, and doesn't flake. The downfall is...it actually makes my eyelash thin out if I don't put extra coats. But that's fine because I was looking for length. Overall, I like this stuff and I'd by it again for everyday casual use.
This has been my HG mascara for years. I have tried sooo many mascaras and have a hard time finding one I like. I have extremely short, light lashes, but they are pretty thick. I wear fake lashes a lot because of it, but when I'm not I am always wearing Telescopic. This is the most lengthening mascara I have ever come across. I will say that it doesn't add too much volume, but I don't really need that. It does dry really hard especially if you are like me and use a lot of coats! I love this mascara and definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to add length to their eyelashes.
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.
