L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara - Swatch & Review (Featuring Guest Swatcher Noel!)


Hey lovelies,

How was your weekend? Noel had a busy time hanging out with his Grandma, he had so much fun :)

Earlier in the week, Noelo also had a great time helping me out with my swatching. Keep reading to see his guest swatch!

Up for review today is L'Oreal's Telescopic Explosion mascara.

The first thing you'll note upon opening this mascara is that the wand is very different to your standard mascara brush! 

Because the formula for this mascara is very wet and the brush is so different to a traditional mascara wand, I found this mascara took a lot of getting used to. My first couple of attempts were horrendous - clumps everywhere, stabbing myself in the eye - not good o_0

The mascara is nice and black :)

1 coat of L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion

After a bit of practise, I've found this to be a decent mascara. I really like the fanned out look that my lashes get when I use this mascara and how much easier it is to deposit mascara at the base of my lashes for a fuller look. Telescopic Explosion works best as a one coat wonder - it does not want to build and attempting to do so will cause clumping. I've been using this as a base for some of my shimmery mascaras and it works well for that.

After I swatched this mascara, Noel decided that I hadn't done a good enough job. So then this happened:

Much better.

L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara is being sold at Postie Plus stores in New Zealand for $8 at the moment.
