L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara enhances your lashes with legendary length and ultimate definition.
Rated 4.23 out of 5 stars
I use it liberally in the morning with a few light touch ups during the day. As good or better than the more expensive brands and I've tried many but have settled on this one.
I am a mascara fanatic and have tried everything from $4 to $40 mascaras. I Have purchased L'Oreal mascaras in the past and favored them for drugstore mascaras. More recently I had been buying Perversion mascara, but decided to switch it up and try low budget.
I did not like the looks of the plastic brush which was more like a comb, but decided to try it after reading the rave reviews. It was a mascara that would be great for someone who has thick lashes already and is looking for a mascara that will add great length and decent separation. If you are looking for curl, stay away. This definitely didn't add curl but my lashes are naturally long with a bit of curl. I'm blonde though, so I have a lot of lashes, which are long but very fine and invisible without mascara. I pretty much wear mascara daily so I don't look washed out.
Personally, the mascara left my lashes looking long but spiky. I prefer a fuller look with great separation while adding volume. Of course I can't stand clumping or flaking, which basically means I want it all. This mascara is neither natural or over the top (like Miss Manga) so I can see the appeal, but I prefer The look of Revlon Lash potion for recently tested drugstore brands.
I added a photo, with Telescopic on the right side by my bangs and the Revlon brand on the left. Disclaimer: I took off all other makeup and used no eyelash curler. Please don't judge!
I do feel like this mascara will not be good at all for those who want curl and mega thickness.

My signature thing, is my eyelashes. People always ask if they're fake. They always compliment them, and it's always this mascara. Since I was 16. I'm 27 now. I've tried so many other mascaras just cuz this one can be a little time consuming for the volume I want (not length). But I've never found another mascara like this one. Not even close.

Hi everyone! I hardly do reviews at all but I swear by this product! I don't really have a lot of eyelashes because of the fact that I used to wear Falsies & Lash Extensions for Cheerleading. Ever since I was on the search for a good mascara. I was complaining about finding a good one to my boyfriend. I seen a tiktok about the regular telescopic one from L'Oréal and he ended up buying this one that I'm writing a review for. I FREAAAAAKING LOVE THIS. I'm on my 5th or 6th Mascara already. It makes my lashes so long & it doesn't get clumpy at all! My lashes look amazing with this product on and I have to wear it everyday! I love it so much. Plsssss try this product you will LOVE it. okay thaaaank you all for reading/listening.

i just got this today and like putting it on right away, it gave me everything with just one coat, it's great for volume and keeping those lashes long. after an hour, i can admit that as soon as i touched them it got like crispy. the feel of it didn't feel right and i was tempted to like play with them, so that's the only non good part about it but overall it's not as bad !

My niece told me to try this - so glad she did d. I'm amazed at how long it makes my lashes look.
Brenda from Federal way
this macara is horrible, I bought it and tried it out and I haven't used it since. It weighs down eyelashes and doesn't make them look nice, also makes them clumpy too. I do not recommend.
Brenda from Ulta
I hadn't used this one before I bought it because I used the waterproof one and I loved the waterproof one. I have very straight eyelashes and when I applied this mascara it did do a good job separating my eyelashes, however, it did weigh them down and didn't really help with volume or lifting. I would probably pair it with a mascara that helps with volume because this mascara alone didn't really do a good job..

I've searched for mascara ever since i started wearing makeup and i finally found one that works the best!! I would definitely recommend using this with an eyelash curler just to get that extra volume that you want. i have thick long eyelashes but i also have friends that have thin short ones and love it just as much!!! The only thing i wish was changed is how fast the product in the bottle dries out but that's it!!!

I've used this mascara for years. I use this as the second coat with a thickening/volumizing mascara and it definitely increases the length. It's also great for a no makeup look

brings down lashes didn't work

I have used this mascara off and on since I was 16 years old. I'm now 30, and I've been using it exclusively for the last 2 years. I've tried other drugstore mascaras, expensive high-end, everything. Nothing holds a candle to Telescopic. I always get compliments on my lashes and have people asking if they're fake. It's also truly buildable but you can get great results with just one coat if you're in a rush. The brush is rubberized with almost comb-like bristles that make a sort of square shape. It's perfect! I've tried the Carbon Black version, and I didn't like it as much as the original as the formula seemed thinner so I wasn't able to build up as much volume. Highly highly recommend this mascara & I hope it never gets discontinued! (or changed)

I've tried and wasted money on so many high-end luxury brands, but I always go back to L'Oreal mascara. I don't even know why I continue to try expensive mascaras; they don't compare to L'Oreal. I use the combination of Bambi Eye and Telescopic, and that provides the most defined, long yet voluminous look ever. The Brown Black shade is perfect; provides softness/warmth with depth.

I've been using this for years. I cannot grow long, luscious lashes regardless of my efforts! But this mascara makes my lashes look so long and full. I am a cancer patient so that is such a morale boost for me!

This mascara is very affordable and I LOVE IT!
Cheli from RGV
I had heard so many great things about this mascara and was hoping for amazing results…it's just meh. My lashes seemed to stick together and it sorta looks like i'm not wearing anything at all. I'm a fan of long, dramatic lashes and it's more of a everyday/natural type.

This has been my go to mascara for YEARS. I keep trying other brands that I hear about but keep coming back to this one. I've tried designer and other drugstore brands and nothing compares to the length this mascara adds. This is my daily go to. It IS a lengthening mascara though- don't expect it to add a lot of volume - but the length it adds rivals fake lashes and fiber mascara without the clump. You just have to build for extreme length. When I really want my eyes to pop and add volume I just start with this mascara on the outer half of my lashes, add a layer or two of a volumizing mascara, then finish with 1-2 full coats of this and my lashes are perfection. There is no other drugstore comparison and I've yet to find a mascara, drugstore or designer, that's better than this one.

i've been using this product for a while and it's amazing! it makes you're eyelashes very long, but if your looking for volume this isn't the best option.
Aly from Ulta
Makes you lashes so long and I didn't think it was clumpy at all!!!
$grl from USA
get this. NOW
it does the job and it lengthens and separates so well to avoid clumping i recommend not doing more than a couple strokes with it and focusing on the ends to give your lashes a more natural yet bold look
LadyK from Ohio
This mascara in itself is good but clumpy...but the WAND?! SO. HARD. to put back in the tube after using!
Mary from CA
I went through the comments just out of curiosity since I've been using this mascara for a couple years and lovee it. I was confused by negative feedback, heres how I get good results: I make sure the applicator isn't too full of product, start at the root of lashes and focus on the edge of my lashes for volume. Wiggle the applicator slightly with each coat, I do 2 coats. THEN do face makeup and set undereyes.
Viv from LA
Lengthens beyond most high quality /name brand mascaras. Volumizes. Separates so well if you know how to put it on right lol
Silvia from NY
Love this mascara! Gives my lashes lots of length and volume. Very easy to apply and not too thick or thin.
V. from Long Island, New York
This mascara was one the worst I've ever bought. Me purchasing this was seeing on TikTok for so long, I had to try it myself. I was so excited to buy it for myself. When I put the mascara on, the formula was too wet, and cold for some reason. Then it made my lashes clumpy, and stuck together. I tried to take it off, and it was the worst. I felt like I was trying to wipe off waterproof mascara. A few lashes were ripped off. NEVER AGAIN!
Mia from Charlotte, NC
It lengthens but is very clumpy and makes your lashes stick together terribly! :(
