L'OREAL TELESCOPIC® CARBON BLACK MASCARA ...

Other than being a lipstick hoarder, I am also a big time mascara junkie and keep on buying every other mascara I heard about. But since the time I have come across this baby I just cannot resist using it and this is my 3rd tube so let's see why I do love this mascara so much. I do not reverse mascara's usually because I feel I do not do justice with swatches of mascara this time I made a little effort so I hope swatches are not a failed attempt... so lets get to the review

REVIEW : 

Packaging :  It comes in a black telescopic looking like tube with the name embossed in Golden color. The packaging is somewhat annoying. The opening is very small, which means that it removes the excess mascara and prevents a lot of air getting into the tube, but it also means that its really hard to get the brush inside the tube.
Brush : The wand features my favorite kind of bristles – short, stiff plastic with very shallow and little bristles.Even though the bristles are short, they still transfer the mascara to the lashes nicely and separate them out.stiff rows let you neatly apply to your lower lash line, too…and without making you look like a spidery fool. 
Formula : The formula is not too wet which I like and because of the wand, there are pretty much no clumps.  My lashes look long and nicely separated. Telescopic doesn’t claim to provide any volume, and you definitely won’t get much from it. But if you apply more than 2 coats it will start clumping your lashes.

Application : Telescopic Carbon Black adhered to the lashes well and provided satisfying daytime results in a single coat. It defined my lashes well, but was not Volumizing and only lengthened moderately


Color : The color is awesome – super black – the way I want my mascara color to be.
Scent : It's also fragrance-free and suitable for those with sensitive eyes and contact wearer.

Lasting : The mascara dries down a bit stiff and crunchy (again, not my favorite) and while it doesn't flake off throughout the day (as long as you're not trying to comb it through with a lash comb after it dries), it does transfer on my brow bone where my lashes touch the skin there. It also dries very fast, so there is no risk of smudging.The mascara stays where it’s put and doesn’t flake at all. The staying power is great too. It stayed put till I removed it.

  12. I love a good mascara, although I like ones that add volume and don't clump so maybe this isn't one for me.
