Most Helpful Positive Review Wonderful Lengths, Thickness And it Lasts All Day
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great for lengthening, but prefer more volume
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.

Made my lashes soooo clumpy

I love Loreal products and had to try this. I'm so glad I did because it performs just as well as Thrive!

This is literally the best mascara i've ever used and it lifted my eyelashes so quick it's amazing.
Absolutely love this mascara!!!

This mascara makes my blonde thin lashes look longer and fanned out. Would definitely buy this again.

I ordered this and my eyelashes have never looked better
You get what you pay for i guess
Skylee from Wv
This does lengthen lashes significantly, but it clumps terribly. I don't like the spider-lash look, i think that's what its called, but it clumps my lashes together and even after using a separator, it just didn't look nice on me. I think if the wand had longer spikes to better separate the lashes, this could be a really nice product. Bummer!
I would repurchase
Mp from Virginia
This is great for lash length!!! Great for bottom lashes especially. This doesn't give volume/thickness, but does wonders for separation and length. Not clumpy and doesn't make lashes hard and crunchy.
Very good but not brlliant
Beautifulfoam from Florida
Very good at adding length. I don't agree with some of the reviews that said it didn't clump. While it isn't terribly clumpy, I did experience some small clumps. Probably better than most mascaras I've tried and very reasonable price point. I know I'm asking the impossible because I'm only wearing mascara until I feel comfortable going back to eyelash extensions when we aren't under attack by COVID. Hard to rate mascara when you've had extensions for 6 years.
Worst mascara I've ever used!
Cora from SL, UT
Ugh, I bought into the TikTok hype and this mascara is by far the worst mascara, and quite possibly the absolute worst makeup item ever, I've used in my 25+ years of doing my own makeup. I've tried using it with other mascaras, primers, on its own, you name it and I've tried it, and it is CLUMPY THE HOUSE! Don't waste your time or monies on this, you'll instantly regret it!
Worst mascara I've ever used 😕

I barely got it today and I was excited to use it. It weighed my lashes down and didn't even lengthened them. If you want a good mascara get the Essence Waterproof Lash Princess mascara It's less than 5 bucks and works so much better.

My daughter and I both love this mascara
Really like it, a minor qualm
K from CT
I saw "sophdoeslife" review this and I really liked her lashes with it so I tried it. I love this mascara so much. It doesn't make them clump together which I think looks so weird when you have like 5 massive eye lashes. It really coats and separates them. My only thing is the wand is strange. It's very thin and bendy so it's hard to get back in to the bottle. Sometimes this means it puts a little too much on and so you have to be extra careful. My recommendation is to use this and then take an empty/unused mascara or brow spooly and go through your lashes once to get any clumps or extras out. Otherwise I honestly really like this mascara and it's affordable
Diana from New Jersey
I loved the mascara's formula, it worked great at lengthening my eyelashes. The only problem I had was with the wand, the application was fine but after I took the wand out, putting the wand back in was a little difficult.
Not buying again
Sade from Newark DE
The mascara was great but I already have long eye lashes and just didn't like the was it look on me.
If you like your lashes looking clumped, get this..
Stacey from miami, Fl
This mascara got all the hype on TikTok which led to me purchasing a $11 mascara.. Usually not something I do but I did it anyways due to the hype. My expectations were high which was probably why I was disappointed. This mascara clumped together my lashes, and the wand is skinny and flimsy. There's definitely better mascaras out there for a cheaper or same price.. Don't waste your money.
Judy from Bakersfield, CA
I have really small lashes and this mascara made it seem like my lashes were sky Hugh. I normally use two mascaras, one for length and one for volume but with the telescopic mascara I only use that one. Definitely buying again!
AMAZING mascara but TERRIBLE wand
alyssa from atlanta
i bought this a while back and i absolutely loved the way it made my lashes look. unfortunately the wand is very flimsy and very very hard to get back in the bottle. i would have to get paper towels wrap it around my fingers so i could grab the wand and shove it back in the bottle. i did not even have the mascara for more than 2 weeks before the wand completely broke inside the mascara bottle
Martian from MI
best mascara ever. I have used it for years and would never consider another one.

Do not like it
Elise from 💪🏿
Makes lashes look super long and black. I've tried all of the telescopic mascaras and this is a great choice. For me personally I have straight lashes and once I put this on my curl is gone. They still look good but if you struggle with straight lashes this will WEIGH THEM DOWN. if you want you can curl ur lashes after but idk that's kinda not the best idea especially if you don't have many lashes. The waterproof one is amazing has the same effect as carbon black and the original telescopic but will take awhile to take off so best bet is to get micellar remover.
Key 🎀 from Tyler, Tx
I would give it 3 stars but the wand is too bendy. When you try to slide it back into the tube it bends like it's gonna break and this mascara is relatively out of my budget for a drugstore product. Other than that it works pretty well and lengthens your lashes, do not use on bottom lashes... it will smudge.
The Best Drugstore Lengthening Mascara!
Georgia Girl from Georgia
This mascara is the best for lengthening my lashes. I have the tiniest lashes and need a lot of mascara without clumping. I love this mascara. It works just as well as Benefit They're Real mascara at a fraction of the price! One of my all-time faves!!
Great at lengthening!
Kbmusic from CA
I was very surprised at how great this mascara worked! Just two coats and it added so much length to my lashes! Very happy with this purchase!
jen from michigan
i love this mascara so much. i've always preferred length over volume and other mascaras i've tried have given more volume than length but this. this is absolutely amazing. my lashes are so long and it doesn't flake or clump much. i will also be purchasing the brown for more natural days. i 10/10 recommend.
LOVE IT !
MH from Illinois
I have really straight and long eyelashes and this has been my favorite mascara out of many that I have tried ! Would recommend!
