Though beauty trends come and go, beautiful lashes will always be “in”. As I finished up the last of my L’Oréal voluminous mascara, I thought it was a good time to try out something new. Many women claim that L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara is the ultimate mascara and well, color me intrigued. Though I was previously using a good mascara, I was hoping to find something that made my eyes look a little “extra” and possibly give the appearance of false eyelashes, all the while still giving me somewhat of a natural look. Can L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara do all of that? Let’s find out in this L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara review blog post!

About l’oreal telescopic mascara | highlights

The flexible precision brush is meant to dramatically enhance and define, lash by lash, lengthening up to 60%. This mascara claims intense length and dramatic longer lashes and 2x the intensity for both your upper and lower lashes!

Colors range from black brown to blackest black in both regular and waterproof mascara. It boasts over 27,000 reviews on Amazon!



This is not a “clean” beauty product, as some of these ingredients pose a concern according to clean beauty database checkers. This product has carnauba wax in it which is the same ingredient used in automobile waxes and floor polishes to give a glossy finish. It is allegedly nontoxic, however, and it’s ophthalmologist-tested and allergy-tested. Those with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers can use this. It is also fragrance-free!


The marketing team took a literal approach on the name and the tube is a tiny telescope- very cute!

First impressions | l oreal telescopic mascara review

My first impressions were, “Wow, I love this mascara!”

The wand makes it easy to apply the product and it made my eyelashes very long and defined. I can’t say the lash length is “jaw on the floor” or anything, but it’s really, really good, and the lash separation was the best I’ve gotten from drugstore mascaras. It made my eyes look more awake and the best part is, I experienced little to no clumping! The color I got, carbon black (not the waterproof formula), added boldness to my lashes.

This is a great option to have in your makeup routine if you want eyelashes that are long and defined. And for less than $9, well, you really can’t go wrong.

Final thoughts

This is an amazing mascara! For a drugstore mascara, I’m pretty shocked by how good this is! It is easily one of my favorite mascaras and it could be the best mascara I’ve used in a long time. It rivals high-end brands, but the best part is that it is so affordable. Many women say this is their holy grail and I get it.

What other women are saying

“I’ve tried every mascara there is under the sun, and the first stroke of this on my lashes for the very first time I was blown away! It’s what I had been looking for all this time! ? Mega lengthening and separates your lashes so absolutely no clumps. Left with beautiful, long batting eyelashes! I would highly suggest to everyone and anyone. My eyelashes normally are kinda resistant to curling and separating (they all wanna clump together), also they grow straight out. So this is mind-boggling! 5/5 ⭐️”

“After all this time on the hunt for a mascara that would help for my baby lashes… I finally found one. This mascara makes my lashes very long just with one coat (with no eyelash curler). Before this mascara I used the” Maybelline​ falsies volume’ express”, let me just say that that one is nothing compared to this one. works very well with the lower lashes. Its sleek and thin wand makes the application easy and not messy.”

“This works pretty much the same as my $30 sth dollar Dior mascara! THE WAND is absolutely amazing! It lets you get very close to the lash line and grab what ever lashes you have! If you have light and short lashes you will love this. If you have regular lashes you’ll also love this! Double coat for extra volume and definition, or stick with one coat to enhance your natural lashes. It doesn’t clump, it doesn’t smudge, it doesn’t give you spider eyelashes. It works AH MAZING for hooded eyes!”
