I was in the need of a waterproof lengthening mascara so I decided to pick this up. I’ve read many reviews raving about the L’Oreal Telescopic mascaras so I knew that I wanted to try the one that was the most lengthening and at the same time waterproof. The Telescopic line includes three other mascaras (none waterproof) and two liquid eyeliners.
L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof Mascara is said to have “a Lash Hugging brush with exclusive 200 bristle and shape that simulates the eyelid to capture and precisely define every lash, even the smallest ones. Grips and lengthens the look of each lash for extraordinary lash extension effect-no lash is left behind. Its Liquid Extension formula coats and lengthens lashes from root to tip for shocking length and intensity. Clump-Free, Flake-Free, Smudge-Free, Ophthalmologist tested, Allergy tested, Suitable For Sensitive Eyes and Contact Lens Wearers.”
I noticed that this mascara looked very sleek and came in a really long tube. The wand is a cool hourglass shape with a tapered off tip, which I think makes for the perfect shape to get into every lash. The wand comes with many plastic bristles, which I prefer over fiber because I feel like that causes less clumps, but that could just be all in my head. I also like that this formula isn’t extremely wet nor is it extremely dry.
After testing out this mascara for a week, I have to say that I very much enjoy it! I actually like using this mascara on its own instead of alongside another mascara, which I tend to always do. This gives great length with minimal clumping and holds a curl all day. I found this to truly be waterproof and was actually pretty difficult to remove even when using waterproof makeup remover. There was also absolutely no flaking or smudging. I usually always have to use a different mascara for my lower lashes because I usually end up with slight smudging in that area, but this mascara doesn’t budge! The only downside is that this doesn’t give my lashes much volume. However, for an everyday look, I think this is pretty great. I love extremely long lashes and this mascara very much delivers. I highly recommend trying this out!
