Review: Loreal Clean Telescopic Mascara

I only keep two mascaras at a time because they only last a few months so to be able to make the most out of their short lifespans, I only buy two. So for now, I'm going to review Loreal Clean Telescopic Mascara. I tried it because I've been reading some good reviews about it.

First, let me show you a picture of my bare but curled lashes:


Here is a picture of my lashes with 1 coat of mascara. As you can see there is a some difference, nothing dramatic.


Here is a picture of my lashes after two coats:


As you can see, there is a big difference with the length of my lashes.

You should know that this mascara has a different wand from normal mascaras. The SA said that it was to prevent clumping, and you know what, it works! It doesn't clump and even when it does, it's so easy to remove them with any lash comb.

Take not though that it is not waterproof, but it does claim to be smudge-proof.

So here is the rundown of the pros and cons:

PROS
  • Really does lengthen your lashes
  • Doesn't clump

CONS
  • Does nothing to thicken your lashes
  • It smudges on me. I have uber oily lids BTW. 1 coat = minimal smudging. 2 coats = mega smudging!

The combination of a very hot, humid weather plus my really oily lids really beat this mascara.

TIPS: Do not touch your lashes once there is mascara already, or else you'll get spider lashes.

Will I buy this again? No. As much as this was a good everyday mascara, I don't want racoon eyes.

your lashes do look longer. the overall effect are natural-looking lashes :) i threw out all my mascaras (save for 1 clear elf one) cause they all went bad...

gosh, since it came out, I've been lemming for this but since I'm not a daily mascara user, i can't finish up my current mascaras so i didn't have the time to purchase this :) Thanks for the review!

Crystal said...

ida, yes they look so natural that's why i loved the effect. but i hated the smudging. LOL

nikki, i'm not a daily mascara user either that's why it's taking me forever also to finish it up.

Thanks for sharing the review! I been looking for other mascaras to play with it, and its been a "blah" experience :( & I have oily lids, I don't want the raccoon eyes either. Haha.

Crystal said...

thiamere, i've read that it works well for shen, but not for me.

aileen, thank you dear!

Crystal said...

mszcheysser, yah i'm beginning to think that i have have have to use waterproof mascara.

Blair said...

Oooh most liners/mascaras smudge on me too! Maybe you can try Clarins' Double Fix' Mascara on top of the mascaras that you use?

Crystal said...

blair, haha i have to think about it first since clarins is expensive. thanks for the tip!

Dana Yoshimizu said...

I hate when stuff smudges on my face >_<

Crystal said...

dana, yeah that's why i won't be buying this again :P

Chrissy said...

I heard this was good but from what i've gathered, the best mascara from drugstore brands is still Maybelline. Nice review!

Crystal said...

chrissy, i'm beginning to think that too! i've never tried any maybelline mascara but i'll be sure to try it next.
