L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara

I was so excited when I heard that L'oreal was coming out with a mascara to rival Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes.

Even though I was excited about this it did not live up to my expectations. I have never really liked any of L'Oreal's mascara, and this was no exception.

The wand is so crazay!!

lashes without mascara

lashes with one coat

lashes with 2 coats

As you can see one coat is OK but when we get to 2 coats it's crazy clumps! I have tried to run a mascara brush through this and the result was OK. But I don't know about you ladies but I don't have a long time to do my makeup in the morning. And if I can use other mascaras where I don't have to use a mascara brush the better.
Overall I think this is a cool concept and a great alternative to Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes ($10 compared to $28), I think it's more trouble than it's worth.
Thanks for reading!

Angela~ Glad I could help! you might want to check out vampy varnish's review, too. She really liked it but she said you have to play with it to really get used to it. I just don't have time in the morning to do all of this.

Wow, I can't believe how different and clumpier the second coat made your lashes! Good pics. Pretty eyes, too:)
