Review: L'oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara

Tuesday, 15 April 2014

Looking for a new mascara is like trying to find a needle in a haystack for me! There's so many on the market, I just never know which to go for! I actually get quite flustered with all of the choices! I usually end up just trying anything and everything in the hope that I'll find 'the one' ;-) I'm still looking for 'Mr Right' (I'll let you know when [or even if] I find it! Haha!) but for now I have a pretty good mascara to share with you. 

At the moment my favourite brand for mascaras is Rimmel. I absolutely love their lash accelerator mascara! It's my go-to mascara and I haven't found anything that beats it! 

But I picked up this L'oreal mascara in Boots a couple of weeks ago as I was picking up the true match foundation and they had a very good offer on. It was only €22 if you bought a L'Oreal foundation and mascara. How good is that?! The mascara on its own usually costs €16.79.

First of all, I really like the packaging! I think it looks really fancy and sophisticated. It certainly doesn't look cheap at all! (Well, it wouldn't want to for €16.79!! Haha!) I accidentally left it on the mantlepiece yesterday and my Mam said: "What's that nice silver thing up there?" Haha!
 It opens easily but when taking the wand out, I found it to be really stiff so it's a bit of an effort just to take the wand out. That was a let down as I love being able to pull out my mascara wand quickly and easily. I don't like difficult ones!

As for the actual brush, I love it! I used to prefer thicker brushes but recently I've actually been loving the thinner brushes. This one, in particular, is great because it's flexible making it easier to get into the inner corners of the eyes. It couldn't be easier to apply!

It claims to separate and coat your lashes one by one for extreme length and definition. I think it does a pretty good job at this! It gives a light and natural application which I love.

I normally apply two coats but with this mascara I actually find that only one coat works well for me. It was quick drying and there wasn't any bits flaking off. It's not great for curling the lashes but if you're looking for a mascara that will lengthen and define your lashes and that looks natural then I'd recommend this mascara!

It's a great mascara ..... however I don't feel that it's worth the price! In my opinion, a mascara that's over €15 would want to be pretty spectacular! I'll definitely only be repurchasing this if it's on offer ;-)

  3. The end result look quite good but it is quite average for a mascara over 10! My favourite mascara of ALL time has to be the one by one mascara by maybelline - I highly recommend it!

    1. I couldn't agree more. It's definitely not worth €16!! Thanks for the recommendation. I'll give it a try! x

  4. I think this is a good mascara,but it is definitely not worth the money.
