Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

This is a staple for me! I have been buying this for the last 4 years I think.... I love it! It hasn't been worth even trying something new. Even when I don't want to wear a full face of makeup, I still put this on and it gives me LIFE!!!!!!!! My only issue is it takes forever to get off.

Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

I reallllyyyyyy wanted to like this mascara - but i'm the kind of person that really wants to be able to just throw on a little mascara and then build it up. I feel like there's no middle ground with this formula, you put it on and BAM there is a bunch of mascara you have to work with fairly fast. That being said, i'm not the kind of person that looks good with clumpy mascara. I went from LashBlast to this and am not overly impressed. Yes, it lengthens a lot more than the LashBlast... but it really doesn't separate the lashes the way I like (which is always my main concern. I won't be returning this mascara because i think it would probably be good for going out. However, for a more natural/everyday use... this isn't the one. I have to really work with it and then use a lash comb to get everything evened out. Too much work, sadly.

Comments about L'Oréal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara:

I've used this mascara on and off for several years. It works really well on my lower and lashes and gives length to my top lashes-I wouldn't look for this to give a ton of volume though. Doesn't turn lashes spidery. It did take me a while to figure out how to use this well. Tip: formula is very wet and dense. If the bottle it new, wipe off some product from the wand otherwise you will not be happy with results. About halfway through the tube is when I stop wiping it.

      Love my lashes to be thick and long. This definitely makes it easy to build starting from a natural to a more dramatic look. Definitely fun to play w different styles. Easy to remove.

            Does not define or lengthen. The deep black color is good, though

              What's the difference in the all black tube of carbon black and the one with gold rings near the top and bottom of the tube?

                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.

                A:

                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.
