Most Helpful Positive Review CRIED LOTS, MASCARA IS STILL AMAZING
I used this mascara for the first time on Christmas Eve. My eyelashes are short and straight and never hold a curl, only one other mascara has held a curl for over 5 years now. I used this one and it HOLDS a curl, my lashes looked amazing and not clumpy. Then, my dad told me he wasn't going to church with my family anymore because my mom was bringing her boyfriend. Said it was because he was behind on cleaning, cooking, wrapping presents. Turns out after canceling on me, he invited his "friend" and her kids to his house to watch movies-- basically playing family with them and lying to me about it (not the first time, just hit a new low for Christmas especially). Had a good cry. Concealer messed up, foundation messed up, but MASCARA STAYED STRONG, LASHES STAYED CURLED, AMAZING. Better than any other mascara.

I received a free full size tube of the Hydrofuge Telescopic Mascara by Loreal for my honest review. I received this mascara in black/waterproof and I have use it a few times since it was sent to me. This is a wet formula and I didnt particularly like the formula or wand for my top lashes. The formula dries almost instantly and is hard to work with and it was hard to add a second coat. The wand is a good length but I do not like the really thin applicator for my top lashes. However I do really like this for my bottom lashes. This mascara separated my bottom lashes and made them look full and long. I wish it had done the same for the top lashes. I don't think I would purchase this in the future because I was not 100% happy with it.

this mascara is non clumpy, holds the best curl, and is so black! I love the wand on this mascara because it is amazing for the top and bottom lashes! will repurchase and love this!
Lengthened and lasted
Katherine from South Carolina a
I bought this product for a wake and it lasted through so much crying. Even though I have really great makeup remover, still found a few little bits in my lashes the next morning. Separated and lengthened my lashes as well.
I would buy this again
Suzy from Beaverton Oregon
My eyes water a lot and my mascara comes off on the bottom outer corners of my eye which ofcourse looks really odd when it is blank from the outer corner inward about 1/2 inch! Waterproof mascara is the best answer I have found. I am wondering if they make waterproof eye liner also?
Tasar from Maine
I have tried several mascaras, all promising longer lashes and no flaking; I purchased this in hopes the reviews I read were real and not just filling me with false hope. I'm so glad I bought this; once I put this on, I was so impressed, my lashes looked longer and not clumpy; it's lightweight compared to my previous mascara. This is going to be my go to from now on.
Chris from Henderson, Nevada
I Love this mascara. Makes my lashes long and doesn't clump them together. The skinny brush is amazing.
Anne from Oregon
Love using this for the days I want a more natural look. Doesn't clump or smear, and fine tunes my lashes. Love the product!
Best Mascara EVER
Ltaylor from Murfreesboro,TN
My lashes are very straight and somewhat on the short side so I have a lot of problems with finding a macará that will keep them curled and add length. This is hands down the best mascara I've used. I've spent hundreds of dollars
TC from Atlanta
Returning item, it was just so terrible it's not useful at all.
Heard the wand was incredible!
Lady Hawkrider from Hot as Hades Arkansas
The formula has decent staying power and doesn't irritate my eyes at all. I put mascara through its paces, and this stayed in through Southern USA heat, (100F+ temp and sweat) It does flake a bit, but came off well with remover. Not the best, but near the top.
holy lashes, batman!

I usually hate mascaras with plastic wands, especially skinny ones that seem like they'll do nothing. This stuff changed my mind. Here's my trick for lashes that stay curled and long and fluttery: curl lashes, apply very thin coat of Maybelline Great Lash waterproof (or any other lightweight waterproof mascara) and let it dry. Then apply this over top. My lashes were so long with this that they practically touched my eyebrows. Didn't smudge, stayed curled all day, came off easily with my usual cleansing routine. Skinny plastic mascara wand convert!
This turned out better than expected
Andrea from Columbus, OH
I LOVE how firm (not flimsy) and skinny the brush is. This let me apply the mascara easily while separating my lashes and adding length. This is now my go-to mascara!
Sara from Portland, OR
I was disappointed with this product. I prefer mascaras with a thin applicator brush so I was excited to try this. I didn't get any lengthening effect from this product and it was really clumpy. It seemed to apply a bit better after a lash primer but another downside was that it was really difficult to wash off, even with makeup remover. I want to return it and go back to my previous mascara.
Martin from Tx
Compared to the regular telescopic mascara this is absolutely horrendous. Makes lashes look clumpy and nasty and don't even get me started about taking it off! This mascara will rip out your eyelashes even when being as gentle as possible. Not worth the time or money!
Lisa from Florida
Does absolutely nothing
Amazing for short straight asian lashes.
Melissa from Pdx
Trust me, if you have short straight lashes that don't stay curled GET THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU GET WATER PROOF!!!!
Hanna from Greeley, CO
I've been reading for awhile that the Telescopic mascara is one of the best for longer lashes, so I finally gave it a try. Maybe I got a dud or maybe I should have bought the non-waterproof version, but this just didn't work for me. It came out of the tube feeling dry, and rather than lengthening, it made my lashes look shorter and immediately clumped up. I used this twice and I already want to throw it away and buy something else. Pretty bummed.
It's a steal!
Christine from CA
For so cheap, this is a must! I just threw away my $21 Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home mascara because it irritated my eyes.
This product it great for every day, light weight packaging, and coats and lengthens every lash, and won't irritate your eyes. I will repurchase.
I would not purchase it again.
I luv makeup from CA
I don't usually purchase mascara that has a brush applicator like product has. Because I have been a long time fan of L'Oréal Voluminous and Ulta staff recommended it, I purchased it.
Overall I did not like the formula. I tried it for two weeks and it's a definite no for me. I could have felt with the brush had a liked the formula.
Not a fan
Salasa from Foster City, CA
The wand is really thin, and it doesn't work very well. There's hardly any mascara on the wand, and I accidentally broke the wand off I'm the tube trying to get some mascara on it!! Very annoying! This might be a good product for a young person who is starting to wear makeup, or looking for a very natural look.
Do not recommend
LH from Pennsylvania
Made my lashes look like broken spider legs.
Love but a little hard to remove
Tina from Hayward, CA
I absolutely love the original telescopic mascara and was so excited to see a waterproof version. I will say it gives me the exact length I am looking for and holds the curl! The downside is it's hard to remove. I have been using the garnier miscellar water which is for removing waterproof makeup but even still I feel like I have to scrub my eyes. I have also noticed because it doesn't come off easy and I'm scrubbing that I'm losing lashes. I may have to just stick with the regular telescopic mascara.
I won't buy again.
Kathleen from Colorado
This didn't last 2 weeks. It was also not very thick. I like the gold tube better and will not buy this one again. They were out of the one I usually buy.
Not So Waterproof, But Still Amazing!
Sorelle from Monticello, Minnesota
it wasn't really waterproof, i only know that because i just cried for 30 minutes and it's slowly kinda flaking off and kinda getting clumpy. it's not bad like normal mascara where it's just black running down your face, it's more like just on your eyelid and under eye. but overall, A REALLY GOOD MASCARA! the wand is nice and thin so you're able to reach corners and have long, natural-looking lashes. i would've gave it a (5/5) only if i didn't cry haha
My favorite mascara, hands down
Deathproofpoet from Oak Ridge, TN
I love this product! It makes my lashes look fuller and longer and it truly is waterproof!
Su from Fl
The wand was bent when I opened it. Which is not good for mascara. Won't but again.
