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.

I love trying new mascaras but I always come back to this one. It never gets flaky or smudges, and the length is glossy and natural, not spidery. The thin brush makes it almost impossible for me to get product on my lids when applying and I can get right up at the roots of my eyelashes. That being said, I can see how someone might not like this right away. The brush is very flexible and it takes a few times to get used to. Also the brush WILL go back in the tube.

my favorite mascara ever i really recommend it's cheap and looks good it makes your lashes pretty long and it isn't heavy so you can layer as much as you want
Miranda from Pennsylvania
When I got this I opened it and saw there was no mascara on the wand but I thought I just had to move it around in the tube a bit but there was no mascara in there the tube was completely empty
I would buy this again only because I love the mascara
Kim from NV
I like the way the mascara goes on
Best mascara ever
Kwags from Wisconsin
Make your eyelashes look long and tangle free. Best brush applicator I've ever used! I've been using this mascara for 10+ years and would never even consider another mascara.
BEST MASCARA EVER
Amylee from ULTA
I have been using this mascara for almost two years. I was previously using Dior Iconic lashovercurl. I grabbed this tube from the drugstore because I had ran out. Hands down the best and great price of any mascara I've used. Very long length without clumping. The people who are saying they can't insert the wand must not be trying very hard.... yes the wand is fragile and bendable but that's what gives your lashes the great look. You just have to take a little more time when inserting the wand you can't just aggressively smash it in.
The brush? Really?!
Lexers from Hanover, pa
This would be an okay mascara if you could actually reinsert the wand after the first use. So I spend $10 to use this mascara once.. cmon L'Oréal improve the wand.
Ingredient List is Wrong
Ria from San Jose, CA
The ingredient list online does not match the ingredients on the packaging. Product has parabens that I am allergic to but these were not listed on the ingredient list online. Would not have bought if the correct ingredient list was posted online due to my sensitivity to those ingredients...
Laura from San Diego
Makes my lashes SO SO LONG AND BEAUTIFUL!! The wand is a little unsteady but you just have to be careful with it.
Consistently Great Mascara
MaggieB from SF East Bay
I've been using L'Oréal Telescopic since it's inception, it truly NEVER disappoints!
Best Mascara I've Ever Used!
Nash from Lubbock, Texas
This product was recommended to me by a friend and this is now my Holy Grail. I have short thick lashes and this mascara gave them so much length and did not clump.
I will buy this again and again!
JoBeth from Tupelo, MS
Mascara doesn't clump and gives sky high lashes!!!
Wand broke off in the tube
Tyra from the Bronx from New York
After my second use I tried to put the wand back in the tube and snap! The bristle end broke right off in the tube. I thought I might try to retrieve it with a tweezer but to what end? I can't use the product with another brush because clearly the narrow tube opening won't allow it. Waste of money.
Works as promised
Katie W from Oxford, MS
Works as promised. Beautifully lengthens and separates lashes--does not add volume, but it doesn't claim to. The wand is very thin and flexible, which I love because my lashes are almost translucent blonde. It can get right up to the lash line, preventing the amateur-looking bare base. Since it is so flexible, it's not going to go into the tube like a normal mascara, but as long as I'm careful I'm not worried I'll break it. The tube is really long, so it seems there's a lot of product.
Great Mascara-Terrible wand
Sue from Plano, TX
I love the way it extends you lashes. However, the Wand is terrible! It bends so badly you cannot even reinsert it into the tube. The construction of this is really bad.
it's alright but works good
hbu from gonna
i mean it works but it's not my go to
I don't get it??
Jess from Beaverton,Oregon
How do people actually like this?? I don't get it. The brush is horrible. Never will use it ever again.
mascara addict from Az
I bought this mascara with high hopes after using L'oreal's other mascaras which were amazing. It gave me length and was pretty black but the darkness didn't even matter because it made my eyelashes so thin! I had spider leg lashes after the first, second, and third coat.
Mariann from Corpus Christi
I have long lashes already they're just straight. I got the blackest black and I was impressed by how nice and longer my lashes looked after my sister recommended it to me. It doesn't clump unless you use too much of the product. The size of the brush is thin but allows to grab the lashes but the mascara does dry out fast. One of the best retail/drug store mascaras out there with few to little cons.
I would buy this product again and again
Babs from Inwood Iowa
Using this mascara just brightens up your face giving your eyelashes such a pretty look
LOVE THIS MASCARA!
Shell from Oxnard, CA
I've been using this product now for over 6 years and have tried literally everything on the market for mascaras. I always come back to this one for a natural look or for my first base mascara to lengthen my lashes then come in with a second mascara to make them fuller. I hate flaking and am I'm always in a hurry with a fast pace life and this is 1 of my 4 products I could never give up. Healthy to eyelashes that I've noticed with no issues.
One of my favorite mascara!!
Sue of the South from Chauvin, La.
I love that it makes my short lashes super long!! Love the wand the best I've ever tried!! Doesn't smudge and stays all day!!!
Sarah93 from OKC
This will always be my go-to. Makes my lashes incredibly long and defined and at such a great price!!!!
Lulu from Seattle
I have a feeling they changed the formula. Doesn't work the same when applying. This used to be my holy grail mascara
Love this for lengthening
Lex from NJ
Love this mascara. I use it to lengthen my lashes after applying a volumizing mascara
