  • "Wow! This mascara is amazing! L'oreal Telescopic Carbon Black give you crazy length that never clumps. You can really pack on this mascara, it will never clump on you. When I first tried this mascara my eyelashes touched my eyebrows, the claims that it has 2x the intensity are true, my eyelashes were 2x more awesome. The only thing I'm missing on this mascara to be super amazing is volume. This mascara gives great length but no volume at the root of the eyelashes." in 473 reviews
  • "It coats nice and evenly. It makes lashes look ten times longer and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lengthening mascara." in 454 reviews
  • "Really loving this one! I've been using higher end mascaras for quite awhile but haven't found one that I love. Tried this one on a whim after a shopping trip to Target. So happy I did! Nice length and volume and it separates perfectly. Great mascara and great price!" in 259 reviews
  • "I LOVE this mascara. I have pretty long lashes already, and this product is perfect for me. The "brush" is thin and allows me to apply the mascara to each lash flawlessly. I prefer it to all "high end" products I have tried." in 96 reviews

I am not much of a makeup person. With my profession I do not have motivation to get up and do things with myself often--therefore paying $8-9 for this mascara I initially about had a panic attack. However, I had scanned it on the Influenster app seeing great reviews so I thought I'd take a chance. I have blue eyes, with short and stubby lashes. I curled my lashes first then put this on, and O.M.G.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Highly, HIGHLY recommend. Since mascara is the main thing I use makeup wise, I've used a lot over the years. This is hands down the best I've used so far in my life, for my lashes and for my look. It makes them so long, it does not clump. I hate clumps! I generally have to use a couple coats with other mascara, this took 1 coat. And it lasted all day. Most mascara does not hold for me, ever. This is the best, and it is definitely worth buying! I plan to keep buying this!!

I bought this mascara because my friend recommended it to me and told me that it really lengthens your lashes. I bought this in the color black brown because I wanted something a little more natural for my lashes. This mascara is VERY liquid-ey, I've had this mascara for a couple months and it still hasn't dried yet. I actually don't like the fact that this is that liquid, my lashes clump together after a couple of coats because of the liquid! Sometimes when coating my lashes, the mascara will get onto my upper water lash line and I have to wipe it off because it gets into my eye.  I first hated this when I tried it out but after a few uses and getting the hang of this liquid mess, I started to actually like the mascara. The wand is kind of flexible, making it a little hard to coat my lashes but I got used to it. This mascara does look good but I personally like my lashes to be more separated and wispy, this wand makes it difficult to do especially if you put on too much (hard to fix). After getting used to this mascara I would say it is a good mascara but I do have some issues with it. Definitely lasts long.
**For reference my lashes are naturally curled and a decent length, I don't need that much help but I do like them to be longer and wispy!

I have honestly been hunting for the best mascara for like 3-4 years like baddd I’ve probably tried every single drugstore mascara available and a lot of name brands like if I didn’t like it immediately I’d throw it out. I need super length super thickness I want doll eyes to last my 10 hour shift or my 2 hour workout without making me look like a racoon or flake city or ripping my eyelashes out when I take it off at night and this was the oneeeee I almost crieddd it’s amazing. Longgg lashes doesn’t get flaky or clumpy buildable volume can last through an entire night of sleep ( and wink wink 😉) like. Basically hoes y’all need to bless your lives . People always think I’m wearing falsies and everyone agrees. No matter how rough I look my eyelashes and brows are always on fleek 🤣

Due to its raving reviews for lengthening and I do have short thin lashes, I was eager for this to work. So it does lengthen and the brush is good for separating and no clumping, however.. It does not hold my curl at all. After applying it to my curled lashes, my lashes straightened out and pointed downward. Also due to some fault of my more oily lids, I got racoon eyes almost immediately. The only way I can use it is sandwiched between 2 coats of Maybelline lash sensation. 1 lash sensation coat to hold my curl, 1 coat of telescopic for lengthening, and then 1 more coat of waterproof mascara to prevent racooning. I have not tried/could not find the waterproof version of telescopic so no comment there. I would not buy again.

This has been a longtime favorite of mine! When it comes to mascara i want length and volume. Most volumizing mascaras end up being clumpy and thick but i want volume with definition and length and this mascara definitley gives you definition!!! It has a super small brush that is like a small comb. One negative about the brush is you always have to be sure the comb is facing the correct way to comb through your lashes just right. It separates lashes so well which really helps add length and it also comes in loreals famous carbon black! Whete the brush is do small it makes it super easy to start right at the lash base

This mascara will become your new favorite! I have used so many mascaras throughout my years and this is top 5! It coats the lashes nicely. It doesn't cause the lashes to clump up and look weird. The wand is nice and thin and allows for the mascara to top each lash and elongate them. You don't get a lot of volume from this mascara but you do get the length. I like the packaging ( it does slightly resembles a telescope). I highly recommend this for a subtle look such as for work.

Are you looking for an lengthening mascara? This is it! My favorite is the Carbon Black version, but this one is just as good. The mascara is easy to apply and use. The bristles are what truly lengthens your eyelashes. I would recommend this mascara for someone who is looking for more length. You will NOT get much volume with this mascara, but some days I am not looking for volume. I love using this mascara for days when I am wearing a fresh, natural face of makeup. Another pro to this mascara is that it is very affordable and easy to find at your local drugstore!

Ok so I had to try this mascara. Everyones been saying it's the best drug store mascara ever. Well to me it's so so... I don't wear falsies so I need a mascara that will thicken up my lashes as well as give them a lift and length. This is not the one for that. And for the price you pay it's not worth it. Yes it does sepreate them but that's about it. I'll just stick to my Maybelline Great Lash mascara for now. L'Oréal Paris Telescopic™ Original Mascara

I have tried many different drug store mascaras and I always come back to this one, it is truly amazing! It lengthens and thickens the lashes to give a great false lash look. I am very particular about my mascara. I like making sure I pick one that does not clump, lengthens, thickens, and holds  up the claims that it puts on the packaging. This one does it all! It says it offers an intense length and it definitely does not make a false promise here!

This has been my favorite mascar for years! I purchased this mascara at my local target. It is good value and not pricey at all. It is sooo easy to use. Although if you want volume this is not the mascara for you, but if you loooove length. This mascara is totally for you!! This mascara works wonders!! You honesty don’t even need to use an eye curler. It curls your lashes and lifts them so high even if you got tiny lashes.
