I can't believe I have yet to review Telescopic Carbon Black mascara! In *my* opinion, this is the best drugstore mascara.

I keep most of my makeup natural, but I admittedly like a lot of mascara... Like, a lot. I really dislike wearing false lashes, so finding a good mascara has been key. I want dark black, curled as much as possible, lots of volume, and somewhat on the thick …

I was excited to try this mascara after trying the reviews. The wand shape appealed as I expected it to apply the product neatly, without getting mascara on my lids as often happens. Unfortunately, the very wet formula made application quite messy and clumped my lashes together in epic fashion. To add insult to injury, the formula was so sticky that I had difficulty using a lash separator to …Read more

After trying so many others, Telescopic has become my current favourite mascara, but I just tried Telescopic Carbon Black and it is also great. In fact, it does give noticeably blacker eyelashes than Telescopic. I still prefer Telescopic as I don't need that extra black, but these are my top two drugstore mascaras. Nothing else gives this kind of natural looking length. My one dislike is the …Read more

I’m definitely in the minority here as this seems to be quite highly rated! I have long eyelashes that need a bit of volume & curl. There are so many problems I have with this mascara.

1. The wand is long, thin & bendy which I initially thought would be great for lower lashes, however the formula is so wet that if I blink, it transfers all over my eyes.
2. Doesn't hold …

For normal people: 5/5
For me: 1/5

LET ME EXPLAIN. This is hands down the best mascara I've ever used- truly lengthens, maximizes, and holds curls for lashes all in one. I've constantly had friends ask me what I'm wearing and (stupidly) have let them tried it before, they were all amazed. As much as I loved this mascara I had to stop using it, because my skin is very …

I enjoy the consistency and color of the product. It is creamy, but not wet and goopy and heavy. I prefer drier mascaras, but this isn't exactly a drier formula. It's like a gel-cream, and I love it, which is unlike me. It lengthens my lashes. I normally look like I have no lashes at all- very thin, straight, short lashes. This added length, but surprisingly added volume as well. I …Read more

I got this because it was highly reviewed but I found myself just never using it. It has a tiny wand and is a hassle to put the mascara on with this. And it sticks your lashes together instead of volumizing them. Not a fan.

Best mascara ever. Does not burn my eyes, does not flake, separates and lengthens lashes like no other mascara I’ve tried! The original telescopic is good but the carbon black makes it more intense which I love!

6 Skinny Lashes – I have thin lashes and the wet mascara formula combined with the comb rubber wand made it look like I had about 6 skinny eyelashes. This really didn’t work for me and I have concluded that I need a nylon bristle wand for lash separation. The little comb teeth just glued all my lashes together. I also got zero volumizing (even though I know this isn’t marketed as) although the …Read more

I love the skinny brush of this mascara. It's perfect for my short lashes and it's the single one (apart of Clinique Bottom Lash mascara) that I can easily use on my bottom lashes.
I don't find the formula to be too liquid. It's perfect.
The mascara gives length, a bit of volume, it doesn't transfer and doesn't give any clumps.
Unfortunately, I have …
