I have tried probably over a hundred different kinds of mascara in my lifetime. Now, I am only 22, but have been wearing makeup for around 10 years. I love to try new and exciting things with eye makeup. When I see advertisements for new mascara, I always like to try them if they are not terribly expensive. When I first saw L'oreal's Telescopic Lashes, it intrigued me. The wand was the first one I had seen that was not a lot of bristles, but 4 corners of mini-combs. I bought the blackest black they had, and was very pleased with the result. Not only does Telescopic Lashes lengthen your lashes by at least 25%, but also separates and defines each single lash. There is no clumping either! The more coats you put on of the mascara, the more dramatic the result. The only downside to this mascara that I have found is that it takes a little bit longer to apply because you want to coat each lash just right, and it doesn't last quite as long as others that I have tried. It will still give you a good 2 months though, which is fantastic. Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone who wants their eyes to pop out and get noticed! I get so many compliments on my eyes when I wear Telescopic Lashes!
