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.
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.
