    Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

    This is my absolute favorite mascara of all time. I have tried what feels like hundreds of mascaras, and this one is always the one I prefer. Goes on like butter, lengthens and give me the most volume. I particularly love the skinny brush, I feel like I am in control of the application unlike those big bulky brushes that get mascara all over your face when applying. My favorite combo with this is to apply Dior lash primer underneath and then the Telescopic mascara. If I'm feeling extra spicy, I sometimes layer a 3rd mascara on top for max lash.

    Bottom Lashes

    By July

    from Los Angeles

    Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

    I love this mascara for my bottom lashes since wand isn't as thick as most mascara wands it really coats my bottom lashes evenly and separates them beautifully. I really do recommend this to everyone out there . The one thing tho that I don't like is that if I were to cry or get water on my eyes it will start smearing .

      Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

      This mascara makes my lashes SO. LONG. I love wearing this during the day when I'm going to class or running errands. The downside is that it takes a hot second for it to dry so be careful not to smudge it after you put it on. Also, this one is definitely NOT water proof. But all in all I highly recommend!

      Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

      I used to love this mascara. When I say love, I mean LOVE. I have used this religiously since the 7th grade, and I am a sophomore in college now. It looks absolutely beautiful and has been my holy grail mascara. I've always had a problem with itchy eyes and having "something in my eye" even though I couldn't see anything in them. I wear contacts, so I always assumed it was from my contacts drying out. Some of my friends even thought I had this problem from wearing false lashes regularly. Today, I wore this mascara without my contacts for the first time ever because I just got a new pair of glasses that I wore for the entire day. By the end of my day, my eyes were stinging and red. It was like the feeling I felt on a regular daily basis, but intensified. I realized that this mascara actually flakes off in tiny little specs and gets into my eyes! My contacts had been protecting me from this all these years, but I still got a little irritation. I can't believe it's the mascara causing this problem. I immediately took off the mascara and washed my face and my eyes felt so relieved. It was definitely from flaking, not an allergic reaction, because I could see tiny little dust-like flakes under my eyes. This mascara was perfect to me for all these years, it always looked beautiful and never smudged, it lasted all day, but wow... the flakes are tiny but bad. Very irritating. It's such a shame. Plus, L'ORÉAL tests on animals and I would no longer like to support this brand.

            Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

            I have been using L'Oréal's Telescopic Mascara since it came out. I tried IT Cosmetics (much more expensive) similar style mascara and wand, returned it and came running back to L'Oréal!
            Since it deposits product on your lash, it creates added volume, but I would not categorize as a volumizing mascara. My lashes are long but thin. The wrong mascara will make me look too exaggerated (tarantula eyes). This accentuates the color (Carbon Black for my olive skin), adds slight thickness. I can alter the application to either minimize lengthening, or maximize. My lashes get sparse when they go thru a shed, shorter when the grow out and long when they're at their peak. This product works great during all phases. Because my lashes are thin, I find they sometimes group together, but again I can keep that look, or this brush is fantastic for separation. The best thing is the brush, super thin you can get those scrawny inner and outer lashes without overwhelming with product.
            To be honest, as I mentioned my lashes are long and thin (on top too), so unlike my lowers where I don't want to thicken on top I do. I love all three Laura Gellar mascara's and would recommend you buy all three as they have very different brushes and effects (glam to enhanced natural). I have not tried her new one. I also used to love It Cosmetics (gosh the name?) comes in a tapered tube. I was on auto ship before never had an issue. This last several containers, seemed old? They dried up quickly, clumped and had chunks on the brush...Not sure if the TV retailer or IT was at fault? I am so used to using this great thin brush that when I have tried to use anything else I act like I have never applied mascara and end up looking heavy, clumpy and NOT what to do. I will never switch and always have extra around.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Ulta mail order is really terrible around Christmas. They take forever to ship orders out. I have had items on back order then finally AFTER New Years get the notice they won't be able to fulfill the order, and if you need customer service, good luck. If I can't buy in the store anything meant as a gift and time sensitive, I don't buy it.
            Orders any other time are for me, if it takes time to get out I don't care. Returns are a pain, if you don't have the exact right document (can't remember which invoice) you can't make the return/exchange. I think you need the emailed receipt, but that is really dumb (no other word for it). Who doesn't take the invoice of any mail order purchase that comes with the order? Last time I was there and had to go back because I couldn't pull the order up on my phone and had the shipping invoice they said Ulta was fixing this issue to accept either document. I hope they did.
            I used to be a regular Platinum member, but since buying on line (Hautlook etc.) and finding screaming bargains, I stopped caring about my Ulta standing. For me it's about the bargain. My local Ulta had some of the best reps though, and it was always nice to go in and play.
            So, if you need something as a gift, or absolutely need what you are ordering, I would recommend going to Brick and Mortar, If you are just playing and taking advantage of a great sale, order away on line.

                Hi Yes, They're Real! Our Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara (black tube with the gold rings near the top and bottom) is our darkest shade of black. This mascara contains more intense black pigments than our original Telescopic Mascara.

                Hi diva101! The difference between our Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara and our Telescopic Mascara is that our Telescopic Carbon Black, contains more pigment and therefore appears darker. Our L'Oréal Telescopic Mascara features a special brush with a flat side to lengthen lashes up to 60%, and a comb side to separate lashes with precision. Removes easily with soap and water. Ophthalmologist tested. Allergy tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Fragrance-free.
