L'Orèal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

"What beauty products would you bring with you on a desert island?" It's a classic question. For me, mascara would be among the antiseptic ointment and water purifier. Mascara was my first foray into makeup, and I'm proud to admit that I'm a lot wiser when it comes to spoolies coated in black pigment now than I was. In previous years, I'd slyly wiggle a tidbit from a nearly empty mascara tube onto my outer lashes. Now, I still prefer the outer lash weighted look, but I go a bit heavier handed. I've tried different assortments, and some loyal few of you may remember when I noted that my favorite mascara was the Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara. But notice how I said "was," and the reason for such a passé remark is because there is a new staple on the block: the L'Orèal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof Mascara.

A skinny, thin edged but thick faced brush with plastic bristles doesn't seem like it would really be that amazing. But, this industrial, science-fiction appearing tube offers serious extensions. In fact, it's so lengthening that, for day time use, I have to make sure that I go light handed when I reach the tips. Admittedly, I do have rather long eyelashes, but, when special occasions roll around, my friends all think I'm wearing falsies--the most natural and stunning look pair ever. But my previous mascara love had one thing going for it: volume. Although I still have a fettish with this characteristic and this formula isn't as oomphing, a good dose of volume is still feasible and I even prefer using liner to satisfy my craving. So, the L'Orèal formula rocks when it comes to length, but in curl holding powers, too. As a lover of lashes that looks princess-y, maintaining a curl is essential. Although the lift does fall after about five hours, that's good enough for me--after said amount of time, it's not like my appearance is even salvagable, anyway. Last, this mascara says waterproof, and it's seriously waterproof; I have to use coconut oil to take it off at night. But it's worth the aesthetic.

Luckily, I've had a makeup evolution over the course of five years (thank god). And from here on out, my eyelashes are always going to be mesmerizing.

  3. I'm trying the original in Carbon Black right now. It's pretty good when layered with a more volumizing formula. The Falsies Black Drama will always hold a special place in my heart, though.

  4. Eyeliner is the way to go for added volume. Volumizing mascaras always tend to look clumpy, anyway. x

  6. Lillian, let me tell you: it is sumptuous. I've actually had people ask me whether I was wearing false eyelashes while wearing it. It's neck-and-neck with my Holy Grail mascara, Diorshow.
