L'Oreal Paris False Lash Telescopic Waterproof Mascara
Mascara is the one item in my makeup bag that I like to switch up a lot and I don't exactly have one particular HG brand. A few of my favourites include Dior Show, Maybelline The Falsies and Benefit They're Real! and now I have another one to add to my list - L'Oreal Telescopic. I'd always seen Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup rave about this mascara but never really thought about picking it up until I ran out of my Falsies and headed into Boots in search of something new to try. I'm really picky about mascaras but since I trust Anna's judgement I decided to give it a go.
The main things that I look for in a mascara is length and volume (obviously) at the same time, sometimes I find it hard for a mascara to give me both of these together but Telescopic definitely does. I also really like the thin, plastic brush which makes it really easy to do my bottom lashes as well. I usually always prefer plastic mascara wands as I feel that they coat each individual lash and make my lashes look more defined. Also when L'Oreal say waterproof, they mean waterproof, like I can even put my face directly under the shower without it budging. However, there is also a downside to this - it's so bloody hard to remove! I really need to invest in a good eye makeup remover (any recommendations are welcome) but I've also heard Bioderma does the job nicely. Sadly, I've ran out of my Bioderma and haven't got round to repurchasing it yet so getting this baby off at night is a chore. It's worth it for long, fluttery eyelashes though, right?
Overall, I'm really impressed with this mascara and it's definitely one I can see myself repurchasing. I paid £10.99 for this at Boots which is a bargain compared to my usual Dior or Benefit one. Have you tried this mascara before? What's your favourite?
