I haven’t written about mascaras for quite some time. Some of them are used up at the moment and today I’d like to share my thoughts on the Loreal mascara.
Before moving onto the main part of my review, I’d like to say that I wasn’t planning to write about this product before it started running low and it lost its original look. So only now I’ve decided to take a few pictures and share my impressions with you. So, I apologize for the shabby tube
To tell you the truth, I was confused and didn’t know how to evaluate such a controversial product. I’ve never used anything like this before. One day I praised it and was so glad I bought it, another day I cursed it with all my might… and was ready to throw it away ASAP. Does this happen to you too?
From the get go, I wouldn’t call this mascara low cost. However, it’s not a high-end product. But the thing is that L'oreal has more inexpensive options. So, I expected something better for the price.
The mascara comes in an elegant black tube with golden writing. I won’t call it eye-catching, as it’s simple and plain. Plus, the product is available in different options with different names. They all are very much similar, so it’s easy to confuse them with one another.
In fact I love L'oreal mascaras and as a rule I’m happy with all of them. This time it’s no exception, but there are some drawbacks I can’t ignore.
The wand is quite unusual. Some girls love it and some don’t get how to put on the mascara with such a tool I refer to the first type, as I endorse such so-called brushing wands. I like that it applies the product well, combs my eyelashes and makes them black in just a few movements.
The mascara is liquid and it doesn’t get dry over time, which is a plus. It’s such a pleasure to use a mascara that doesn’t change its original properties even when it’s running low. I don’t appreciate such mascaras that are already dry when you have used up only half of the tube.
In the end this mascara got thicker, but it was already 6 months old. By the way, I’ve been using other products along with this one.
Well, as far as you can see, I was totally obsessed with it, but it’s time to talk about the cons now.
Firstly, it sticks my eyelashes together a little. It’s not such a big deal, but still I have to separate them after application and waste my precious time on it. Moreover, the liquid texture has a drawback, which is that it can smear the upper eyelid. So you have to be careful with it.
In general, the cons are not a deal-breaker, but I wish there were none. In other words, sometimes I was either very pleased with the results or very angry because of the clumpy eyelashes and dirty eyelids which I had when I was in a hurry
The product deserves 3 or 4 stars. It works well, but I’m not totally pleased with the results. In my opinion, it’s a little bit pricey for such quality. Vivienne Sabó mascara is for example a more affordable version, but it performs better.
So, Loreal Telescopic Extra-Black Extreme mascara is not for those who usually apply such products in a hurry. It does a good job when you take your time.
Thank you for your attention
