Drugstore Find for Your Lashes

You’d think, at this point, that I’d be sick of talking about (and taking pictures of) my eyelashes. But you’d be wrong.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine raved about this new mascara she was trying. Of course I knew I had to try it.

Enter L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara.


For about $8 a tube, this stuff is a-mazing!

First off, the brush is a little different. It’s not so much an all-around brush as it is a big multi-sided comb.

It took me a few tries to get the hang of it, but once I did, this little guy separated my lashes and helped to break up the clumping that my lashes tend towards.

I like a mascara that helps my lashes look long and healthy – thicker, but not clumpy.

Natural, but not too natural – if you know what I’m saying.

I realize it’s hard to tell in that early-morning light, but this stuff is a serious WIN. Better than the $20 mascara I love to use, and so much better than a lot of the drugstore mascaras I’ve tried before.

The only downside is that Telescopic mascara has staying power, so it definitely took me several cotton balls soaked with makeup remover to get it off… but other than that, it’s more than worth the $8ish price tag!!

That’s my drugstore find of the week month…. have YOU seen anything good at the drugstore lately??

  1. I’ll have to give this a try the next time the drugstores do great sale on L’Oreal. I just scored 2 Revlon lipsticks that are my new favs. After sales and coupons they were $1! I love a good deal!

  2. I have been using this for several months and it’s awesome! I have very flat lashes and this stuff makes them look super long and full. I actually use L’Oreal Voluminous mascara for the first coat and then use Telescopic for the 2nd coat. Love it!
