Product Review: L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

I know, I know. Another mascara review. Hear me out, though. If there’s anything you can take away from these product reviews, it’s that I’m trying my best to share my experiences with certain items in hopes of better informing someone about a product before they go out and purchase it. Who wouldn’t want to have someone else do their experimenting and save money in the process? (Silent bow)

One of the biggest problems I encounter with mascara is product transfer, meaning because I have oily skin, mascara tends to transfer to my eyelid and beneath my brow bone, leaving a rather ugly looking black smear. The worst thing is that sometimes I’ll go without knowing it’s transferred for hours, and people probably think I’m a chimney sweeper.

Anyways, when it comes to mascara for me, personally, I need a type that gives me great length and doesn’t transfer. I’ve mentioned the Covergirl mascara here in my blog a few times as it fits this criteria, but I’m still always looking for new and exciting possibilities.

The L’Oreal Telescopic mascara gives me fantastic lash length and definition, but surprise, surprise, it transfers. Pretty bad, actually. It’s also a lot more pricey than the Covergirl one I’m devoted to, which is a definite bummer in my books. I think this mascara would be great for someone with dry skin who doesn’t need to stress about transfer, but if you have oily skin like me, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it. And yes, it also transfers with an eyelid primer. Trust me, I’ve tried to give it a chance.

I guess the moral of these mascara trials is to stick with one you know won’t disappoint. Should you never experiment with new ones? No, experimenting is fun. But like the old saying goes, why fix something if it isn’t broke?
