FP101 Review: L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara

Now you know I was excited when I got the chance to try L'Oreal’s new Telescopic Explosion mascara aka Givenchy Phenomen Eyes for the masses on a budget. Now when I first saw the Givenchy mascara I just had to have it. I never did and it stays on my list of things to buy so I was more than happy to try this affordable version.
 New Globe brush
The secret to lashes that blow you away? Discover new Telescopic Explosion mascara with the NEW GLOBE BRUSH.

The globe shaped brush is:
- Precise: to get right into the corners capturing even the shortest lashes.
-Spherical: to use from any angle for longer-looking lashes.
- Precise: to seek out every lash for a fanned out effect.

The Result: A spectacular fanned-out effect, for voluminous and beautifully lengthened looking lashes.

Overall this mascara isn’t bad but isn’t one that I reach for. I find the brush to be kind of weak and I have issues with a weak brush. I can ‘t stand to use a mascara and feel like the brush is going to break when I’m trying to get it back in the tube or when I’m applying it. A gouged out eye is not a good look. It’s also a tab clumperific so when I do use it I layer it with mascara and the results are great.

Since I’ve never used Phenomen Eyes so I can’t compare the two but if you’ve wanted to try the Givenchy version but didn’t want to pay that Givenchy price Telescopic Explosion is the way to go.

I like it a lot because the even though I have big eyes, I need a smaller brush, and this one gets every single lash. The con? like you said, it can get clumpy, so I have to go back over it with a clean spoolie, or with my Maybelline Lash Stiletto.

It could also stand to be a lil more black, but I'm sure that's coming. The L'Oreal Telescopic line has been an overall win for my pathetic lashes, so until a good cross between them and Lash Stiletto comes along, I'll just be using them both.
