Love it! At first I thought the brush was a little bit awkward to use, but I definitely got used to it. I usually don't care for the comb wands as much as a traditional or spiky wand. The first time using it, I don't think my lashes looked as good as I hoped for. I almost returned the mascara! Luckily I gave it a few more tries, and now it's awesome. It's nice and dark black, gives me full and long lashes, and doesn't flake at all on me. I've recently received compliments on how pretty my eyelashes are, but they're not anything like this without mascara. The first time I used it, it was more of a natural look. Now I apply two coats for a more dramatic look. I will be buying this again for sure! Give the comb brush a try... it's different, but you definitely get used to it and it's great to clump-free lashes!
Very dissapointed with this product. After applying this I end up having just 6 very long spider legs. My eyelashes looked better without it.
Love love love this mascara. It is lengthening for sure and lengthens my much need short sparse lashes by at least 3 times. This product does creat a false lash effect and it is so black and that just adds sexniess to my deep set eyes for thickness I point th brush up and dab on areas to get it a little clumpy. Otherwise once you have the length with this mascara you can use another brush for thicknes (perhaps from nother mascara you have) and dab it in this tub and get the thickness you require.
This mascara wand is tightly packed and is more of a comb not a brush so you do not get clumps but lots of long lashes can be created without them gluing to eachother like spiders legs.
I cant use another mascara now its only this from now on.
I love the super deep black it really shows that other mascaras are more a deep grey because this made a real difference and gave me killer eyes that people think are false but trust me this is my secret.
It comes in a black tube with gold reflective writing which makes it glamourous for any make-up bag or dressing table.
I find the brush grabs all of the smallest lashes too and it doesnt irritate my eyess and stays put for ages with no smudging. This one isnt waterproof and I prefer that because waterproof never comes off and I find it is heaveir and the waterproof ones never seem to mimic the non-waterproof version. But this relly doesnt seemt o smudge either.
It is affordable and so far two months on it is still going strong and hasnt dried up which is definately a thumbs up.
This is great for day but much better for night for that glammed up look.
You can see how this looks on me in the photo with the light green eyes. In the other girls' photos, no offense to them, but it just looks like they weren't heavy-handed enough in their application. This is hands-down my HG mascara. I have tried so many others and keep going back to this one. I switched to Lash Blast Luxe for a while and like its volume, but it can't TOUCH Telescopic on length. Nothing I have ever used has made my lashes look this long, and you can get volume with it too. I don't have a problem with clumping, flaking, or smudging, and it washes off easily with cleanser and a little gentle scraping at the bottom lash line to get any remaining traces. I am good to go with just one coat, though I usually do two because I like a darker, bolder lash look. My lashes are probably longer than average, but they're not insanely long until I wear this, and people constantly comment on them. I got no comments with Lash Blast.
This applicator has a slight learning curve, so if you've just bought it and don't like it or think it's depositing too much, try it for at least a week to make sure you have the hang of it!! Once you know how to do it right, you will see why it's special.
My concern with L'Oreal products in general are the rumors about animal testing...I am still using this because I don't know for sure. I try to use only cruelty-free makeup.
When I run out of my current tube, I will probably try the new Lash Blast Length to see how it compares, because I know how I am and I can't resist a new mascara. But this is ALWAYS the one I go back to.
I was expecting this to really great considering the hype. But about the only thing i like about it is the packaging. Its not even that black, it doesnt lengthen lashes THAT much, i dont really like the brush as the bristles are to spaced out. Overall i wouldnt buy it again, there are much better mascaras out there.
I really wanted to like this product. But because of the brush, it clumps so horribly and makes my lashes stick together. The color is a nice dark black color. I think if the brush were different, it would be a really good mascara.
This product is good as far as lengthening is concerned. The brush really grabs the tiny lashes in the corners of your eyes, and is good for the bottom lashes. As far as volume goes, I find that I have to use a coat of a volumizing mascara afterwards. If you apply too many coats of Telescopic it can get a bit clumpy on the ends of lashes. If you use a q-tip to get rid of the clumps.. then your length is gone too! Kind of a love/hate with this product.. but I am very picky with mascaras! I'd probably buy it again simply because it was cheap and I like the way it makes my bottom lashes look.
This product gives the most incredible, dark, glossy lashes EVER. I like layering it over MAC prep n prime lash (that gives me a bit more volume) and it just makes my lashes look gorgeous. I like the small rubbery brush as it grabs all my lower lashes perfectly. This mascara also washes off so easily. Love it!
it doesn't do much in terms of volume but it definitely makes my lashes look really long. they actually look fake. if you use too much you can end up with crispy looking lashes but used sparingly, this is an amazing drugstore find. great dramatic black color as well. it mildly irritates my contacts, but nothing unbearable.
Impressive! Long lashes! no flaking! Doesn't bother my eyes when wearing contacts either.
