Beauty Review: L'Oreal Telescopic Exploision Mascara

I opened my mailbox yesterday to find L'Oreal's new Telescopic Explosion Mascara waiting for me! This marks the second drugstore brand to create an inexpensive version of a unique department store mascara.

First Maybelline came out with a vibrating mascara to match Lancome's, and now L'Oreal has come out with a mascara with a spherical brush to match Givenchy's Phemonem'Eyes Mascara for a whopping $24.

Check them out side by side. L'Oreal's wand is a lot longer and thinner.
It was rather flimsy and I found my self wishing for a sturdier wand.
As you can see, Givenchy's wand is much shorter. I haven't tried this
mascara, but I would imagine it makes for a much easier, less messy

Ok, so this is my lashes with no mascara. Not much going on, right?

This is my lashes with two coats of the Telescopic Explosion Mascara.
Pretty dramatic difference, huh? The round wand took a little getting
used to, but it was pretty easy to apply. It can be messy,
though, so practice is key.

It didn't get at all clumpy( the flash in the pic makes it look like it is),
but it's a few hours later and my lashes feel a
little crunchy. Overall, I was pleased with this mascara. If you're into
super long lashes, this will certainly deliver! I prefer a volumizing
mascara, but this gave me a satisfying fringe of lush lashes.

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara will hit stores in November (just in time for
holiday parties!) and will retail for about $9.50. I can see myself buying
a tube of this mascara, so definitely give it a try!

Thanks Amber! I may have to give that a try. I've tried the L'Oreal Beauty Tubes (clumpy and messy) and the Maybelline Lash Stiletto (nothing special) and a host of others and I find myself going back to my tried and true Maybelline clear mascara. As of yet, it's the only mascara that hasn't let me down.
