L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara


Hi guys! I really wanted to have another video up for you today but it seems that the universe just doesn’t want that to happen. I usually film the weekend before I post but I was so sick and so busy last weekend that I just didn’t have the time. I tried to film a nail tutorial today to post but my technique was off and I ended up blocking half the footage with my other hand while painting the nails. Frustrating, but at least I can use this manicure for Mani Monday right? I’m going to attempt to film tomorrow for next week’s video. Today had other frustrations so I think starting fresh tomorrow is a must!

Anyways, this week I picked up the L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara. I had seen it mentioned so many times on YouTube, and I’m currently out of my holy grail Too Faced Better than Sex mascara so I thought I would give it a try. I usually like L’Oreal makeup so I went into this venture with optimism!



The brush is very small. At first I was thinking that it would be great for my lower lashes but wouldn’t pack enough of a punch for the top lashes. However, I was wrong! It was great for all of my lashes! I don’t know how they did it but it definitely gave my lashes length and a bit of volume! I never curl my lashes but they looked like they had some lift to them after I applied this. It also dries very soft so it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing mascara.

As for wear-time, I found that it lasted all day and did not flake off. There is nothing worse than a mascara that ends up flaking and you find it miles away from your eyeballs!

Overall, I’ll call this a win! I love how the tiny wand works well for my top and bottom lashes without the possibility of making a mess with a larger brush. The packaging is also really cute since it actually looks like a telescope! Once I get more Too Faced Better Than Sex I will need to compare them to see which I like better. I love that I can get this at the drugstore so that I don’t need to order it when I run out. That’s the struggle of not living anywhere near a Sephora…

  1. Too Faced is my favourite mascara on earth – I just wish it didn’t flake. I’ve figured out that if I only do 2 coats, it flakes a lot less. But I tend to get carried away with mascaras and like put 6 coats on and then have Crazy Tammy Faye lashes…I can’t control myself, especially with BTS, you can just keep building it and building it. Anyway I’ve heard really great things about this mascara as well, it’s on my list to try once I get through my 500 mini samples I picked up late last year. 😉
