Whoa! L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara
Mascara - September 16th, 2009

cb-telescopicI recently had the opportunity to try out L’Oreal’s newest mascara Telecopic Explosion, which will be available in stores in November. It has its pros and cons, but overall I give it two thumbs up!

The first thing you will notice about this mascara is the brush. It has a special ball-shaped brush, very similar to the brush used in Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes mascara. The advantage of this brush is that you can get into the corners of your eyes to easily coat those lashes. Also, the smaller size means you have to spend time doing your lashes in sections instead of all at once, like you would with a bigger brush. This could be a good thing or a bad thing – it does take more time.

However, this painstaking attention to detail means your lashes will be amazingly fanned out and defined. There is a learning curve involved. It took me about three tries to really get the hang of using the brush to its best advantage to get the defined look and long length I wanted (without having to crack out the lash comb). Also, since it is rather time-consuming, this probably won’t be an everyday kind of mascara, but rather the go-to product for special occasions and days when I have time to spend doing my makeup.

The formula is good – no flaking or smudging, and it stays put all day. It’s not too thick or thin, but has just the right consistency to coat your lashes without clumps. Having tried this one, I don’t feel a need to drop $28 bucks on the Givenchy original – I think this budget copy probably does everything the Givenchy does, for a lot less dough.

Overall, I approve of this mascara. For a high-drama look, this definitely delivers the goods!

    NO NO NO!!! This is the worst product Loreal makes. I’m a makeup artist and I know how to apprly mascara. Bad product, don’t waste your money. And even with the learning curve it’s crap.

    Im sorry to say that I agree with Susan, I HATED this mascara! My eyelashes are quite long and thick so it took me ages to apply this and make it look nice.
    Give me Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto any day! :D

    Hi Faye & Susan! Aww, bummer that it didn’t work out for you. I agree, it’s definitely not going to be for everyone! I do like Lash Stiletto a lot. Thanks for the comments!

    Susan, I do believe that you’re indeed a makeup artist, but as someone who knows what they’re talking about why don’t you give a few examples of why it’s a horrible product instead of just telling us it is.
