This was a good drugstore lengthening mascara. It did not create spider lashes and added volume without significant clumping.

Unfortunately, I think it is being discontinued. Another good one bites the dust, but if you can find it pick it up.

I really loved the results that this mascara gave me. I look for mascaras that give lots of length while keeping a curl all day, and this product gave me both. I received a lot of compliments on my eyelashes asking if I was wearing falsies. I really loved this mascara. The only problem is that the ingredients (propyl paraben) really bothered my eyes to the point where I couldn't open my eyes at the end of the day. My eyes were red, itchy, and hard to keep open. I'm really disappointed because I really loved this mascara, but can't use it.

So I bought this mascara a little while ago simply because it was on sale and cheaper than any of the brands I usually gravitate towards. I'm torn between whether I love it or not. The perks is this stuff is EXTREMELY lengthening. I have average lashes when I curl them, this stuff really adds a lot of length, so it's definitely not lying by the name. I have a few cons though. For one I REALLY dislike the brush. The first minor con is that this stuff flakes just a little bit, nothing huge, but it's enough that I probably wouldn't repurchase again. I'm not a big fan of plastic mascara wands, mainly cause I don't find they really grip my lashes, and usually plastic wands in my opinion don't give me a lot of volume. I also am not crazy about the fact the wand isn't curved, like my Maybelline The Falsies that I absolutely ADORE. I just personally find the curved wands gives my eyelashes the extra bit of curl and lift that I like. All in all, it's not a bad mascara at all, and if you like a lot of length and separation you'll LOVE this stuff, as long as you're light handed with the application.

It's a regular mascara but I like how it pulls the lashes up which doesn't happen with other mascaras

This mascara is amazing it gives you great volume and that is what I want in a mascara.I barely have lashes and this mascara gave me lots of volume with just one coat! This mascara is like Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara which I love,but it's too much money to keep buying every three months.Best L'oreal and drugstore mascara ever! Definitely buying this mascara again.

After years of only high end mascara and still not being satisfied with the result, I took a chance on this one thanks to a You Tube beauty blogger. It's not perfect but honestly, I like it a lot better than the others I was using and it's much cheaper. It gives me more length than Benefit's They're Real and definitely more volume. I pair this with a waterproof volumizing mascara to hold my curl (I have very straight lashes that grow down and REFUSE to hold a curl without strong waterproof formulas). The brush is everything. I LOATHE big fat mascara wands. When you have short lashes, they do nothing but make a mess. This tiny want is so much easier to use. Points deducted for not holding a curl (but nothing does) and it flakes a tiny bit (but definitely not enough to keep me from using it. Benefit flaked worse). I'd keep buying this, but it has dissappeared in all of the stores in my area. I wrote to L'Oreal and was told it's not discontinued but they never answered why there's not even a spot for it in a single store in my area anymore. I'm planning on trying the original Telescopic Carbon Black next because I can still find it everywhere.

EDIT: Just got another message from L'Oreal. This product has been discontinued as of this month which explains why I can't find it anywhere. :(

Here's the good: it gives amazing volume and length. It holds a curl very well. The tube design is great because you can feel it 'click' shut so no air gets in. The brush is excellent for grabbing tiny hairs and the lower lash line.

The bad: It made my eyes itch and water like CRAZY. Oh my god. If you have sensitive eyes, I give you warning before trying this. The formula of the mascara is thick, gluey, and clumps, not to mention flake. Extremely uncomfortable to wear during the day. In fact I could not wait to get home after work just for the fact of removing this mascara!
So, no I would not repurchase.

This is a very buildable mascara. It can give a nice, natural look or a super dramatic look depending on the amount you apply thus it is a very all-purpose mascara. I have the waterproof one and it is super hard to remove. Even after removal, I tend to see traces of the mascara smudging and flaking around my eye area, which is super annoying. It seems to be fairly waterproof but it once smudged around my eye area when I teared up after yawning, which was disappointing. I really do like the wand on this mascara though, it can really get in there and separate the lashes and reduce clumpiness. It's also easy to get the bottom lashes with the slim wand but don't expect too much from this product if you want some bottom lash action.

I've been using this mascara now for a couple of months and I'm just not a fan.

I own the non-waterproof version in carbon black, and it's such a huge pain to remove. The color bleeds all over around my eyes, making me have "panda eyes". This results in me having to go over my eye area many times with my waterproof eye makeup remover, which I totally want to avoid doing as the skin around the eye area is so delicate.

It's quite a wet formula, so it tends to clump easily and makes my eyelashes look thick and spidery. That said, this mascara does lengthen and curl the eyelashes a lot. So if you're going for the "dolly" look, this mascara might be for you. But since I like more feathery, natural look, this didn't work for me.

I did however like the brush; it's small and the bristles are very fine, making it easy to coat every single lash. However, that reason in itself is not enough for me to repurchase.
