I'm not a big fan of this mascara, but I really wanted to be because everyone loves it so much. I guess it's just not meant for my already long lashes. If you have sparse or short lashes, you will probably love the dramatic lengthening of this mascara. If your lashes are in good health this mascara could really make them crunchy and difficult to work with.

It is really harsh on my lashes. I prefer a mascara wand that is made out of bristles, not a comb. Second, L'Oreal Telescopic mascara is *really* difficult to remove even though I didn't buy a waterproof version. I have to use a lot of makeup remover otherwise there's still residue in my lashline. Sometimes I even lose a few eyelashes removing this! While wearing this I notice my lashes were stiff and fairly brittle...not exactly what I was hoping for. Third, it doesn't volumize. It's mainly a lengthening mascara, hence the name telescopic.

I have purchased this a few times. This mascara is dry, which I prefer. It is good for lengthening and separating, but you will need a separate mascara for volumizing. I usually use this mascara for layering. I might repurchase this in the future, but I usually just like use one mascara.

This is my go to mascara. I have wandered and I always come back! I have used MAC, L'ancome, Clinique, Benefit, you name it and I always come back to this $10 gem. Excellent length and with a couple coats you get amazing volume. I've been asked if I'm wearing false lashes with this ;) will always repurchase

This is my favorite mascara ever! You can achieve a separated, clean look with just one coat of it or you can have huge clumpy lashes that hold curl all day and doesn't flake with two or more coats. This has been the second time I've used this mascara because of a previous time when I was desperate for some mascara before a football game and had to use my cousins. I instantly fell in love with it so much that she gave me her backup of the mascara so I could have it. After cleaning every last inch of it out of the mascara tube, I threw it away. One of the biggest mysteries in the world is why I didn't repurchase it as soon as I ran out? Luckily, I was reminded how great it was when my aunt used it in front a couple weeks ago. This mascara makes your lashes HUGE and it lasts ALL DAY LONG! There is no flakes and the mascara comes off easily with an oil based or pure oil makeup remover. I can not recommend this eyelash perfection in a bottle more! If you are looking for a good mascara that's not expensive, ALWAYS get L'Oreal! They are the masterminds of mascara...and I am not even sponsored to say that....sadly. Another great one to try out is the Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara from them as well. They work very well with each other!

This was my first mascara. It is great for beginners. Plastic wand, with comb-like structure, separates lashes and defines them. Doesnot give volume. Doesn't hold curl for too long. I like this mascara because it does the job of defining the eye hence completing your eye look, whether its a bold one, or a neutral one. Recommended as a day mascara.

I really enjoyed this mascara! It did a good job at lengthening my lashes! I have the one in the silver tube. The only thing I don't like about this mascara is there are too many choices of the same type, they all just have a different color tube.

Its a nice mascara that really does lengthen. Did nothing for thickening (though it never claimed to do so). One of my top selling mascaras at the drugstore.

I bought this because I'd heard great things about it. But I don't get the hype. Although there are some things I like, for example it doesn't fall off and lasts throughout the day.

But mainly I feel like this is definitely not the right mascara for someone with long thick lashes like me as it just clumps them together. I can never wear this mascara on its own but always have to use a separate mascara brush to remove clumps. I also don't like how it really stiffens the eyelashes. I feel like this makes it hard to reapply your mascara throughout the day. Sometimes for example I'll put mascara on for work in the morning and then when I get home I'll redo my make up to go out. But I can't do a touch up to this mascara without it looking absolutely terrible. This mascara gives absolutely no volume whatsoever as well.

Personally I will never purchase this one again as I don't like how it makes my eyelashes look. But I think it might work better on someone with different lashes than me. For example if you have thinner lashes maybe.

This mascara is the best one I've used yet! Purchased many high end and high street mascaras over time and I still always return to buying this one. Gives great length, separation and doesn't dry out & flake throughout the day. Many people have asked me if I'm wearing falsies when I wear this mascara. Would deffo recommend to those who have short lashes and don't want to wear falsies. Also! Would like to add to my review that I have recently been on holiday and went jet skiing in rough seas and this mascara lasted the whole time and didn't budge a bit!

This mascara is horrible. First of all, it smells really strong. When I apply this through my lashes the little spikes on the wand kind of hurts my eye. As for the results, I can't stand it. It does NOT separate AT ALL. It only makes you look like you have one big mono-lash, which, in my opinion is not a very good look. This mascara was quite expensive aswell, 20 dollars for one tube. (although in sweden where I live that isn't an abnormal price for a mascara).

I can imagine that shorter, sparse lashes would be better for this mascara. However, if you already have long lashes ike me, DO NOT BUY THIS.
