i was apprehensive about the brush...but it turns out that it's the brush that amazingly lengthens and separates my lashes. I have stick-straight, long lashes that are beautifully fanned out with this mascara. I absolutely LOVE the ultra dramatic lash look, and this gave me the best length and definition of any mascara i have used. i was obsessed with trying new mascaras but that has cooled off since trying this (good thing too as it can be quite a pricey indulgence). telescopic is definitely a staple in my mascara stash from now on!
I love this mascara! I have nice lashes to begin with, but I really like to make them look as big & bold as possible. It gives dramatic length and it is a nice deep black. I love to try new mascaras but this is one I re-purchase over and over!!
Amazing lengthening mascara!!! the skinny applicator makes for the best separation and length... this isn't going to give you a whole lot of volume...mainly length and definition. But these definately give my straight down lashes some lift. I would say it gives the length close to what false eyelashes give, but again no thickness... Overall cute packaging and only cost me $2.99 at Rite Aid, used a 3 dollar off coupon on an already marked down $5.99 mascara. Score!
Note: I have straight Asian lashes that are neither thick nor long. I don't use waterproof mascaras.
What makes this mascara one of my HG products (along with CG Lash Blast and Maybelline Volume Express: Colossal) is the wand. The skinny applicator combined with the short bristles that aren't too close together makes Telescopic a really good lengthening and defining mascara. Though it doesn't volumize as much as Lash Blast and Colossal, it definitely lengthens a bit more. The Carbon Black formula adds to the drama and makes up for the lack of volume. As opposed to L'oreal Voluminous, Telescopic neither smudge nor flake. It holds my curl fairly well throughout the day (8-12 hours).
I love this mascara in terms of length. It makes my eyelashes SUPER long. I use it after I put a volume mascara on. It works very good for me but it is kind of pricey. I bought mine for about 10 dollars but it's worth it if u like long lashes(: I will repurchase when I run out for sure
So far this has been the best mascara I have used in terms of making my eyelashes look great (makes my eyelashes look longer slightly thicker and very dramatic) BUT, and this is why I've given it a 3, it smudges like crazy I'd only been wearing it for 2hrs and by the time I got home it had traveled about 1cm under my eyes making me look horrible (it wasn't hot, I hadn't been crying nor rubbing my eyes) and also this mascara irritated my eyes, I've never experienced this with a mascara before but whilst wearing this my eyes were stinging. I haven't trialed using a waterproof mascara on top yet to see if it stops this mascara migrating south but I'll update when I do, other then that I think I'll just save this for special occasions when I want to look great (with the price of constant touch up and stinging eyes lol).
This product is a bit too formula-y for my taste. The brush is cool, and I like the packaging, but the formula sticks all my lashes together and weighs them down. It's very "wet" and sticky. I have dug the tube out lately, though, and started using it as a mascara base. I just have to use an eyelash comb before it dries to separate all my lashes out before I add my second mascara.
I got this for christmas last year, and my first impression was that it's just a cheap mascara with no effect. But impressions were wrong.. This one is fabulous! I use it everyday, because it gives my lashes great length and volume. It's also a very nice black colour. The brush is amazing, and it takes only seconds to apply. This mascara is also kind of cheap, so that's a plus. Usually I'm not into L`Oreal products, but as I said, this one is great. I will definitely buy this one again, because it's perfect for everyday use.
I'm not too crazy about this. Like most L'Oreal mascaras I've tried I just found this ok. The telescope packaging is cute and it is a very deep black like the name implies. The brush is a weird rectangular shape with tiny comb-like teeth. The formula is very wet and combined with the weird brush it makes quite a mess. I admit I am a messy mascara applier but this was worse than usual. It did leave my lashes long and soft but only after I brushed through them with a clean Lash Blast brush. I would not repurchase and I doubt I will finish my tube. For lengthening I much prefer Rimmel Lash Accelerator or Maybelline Lash Stilletto.
I loved this product! I bought it the other night after I read all these great reviews! It makes my lashes look so much longer. If you slowly apply, it separates each lash. I love it. So much less clumping then these other brands. The little wand its so skinny, and I love it! I will make sure to stock up on this mascara, just in case they stop selling it. If you want a great mascara, this is the one for you!
