Is it Worth it? L'Oreal's False Lash Telescopic Mascara

We’ve seen the photos and drooled over Cheryl's advert so I couldn’t wait to try the new False Lash Telescopic Mascara. BUT my first impressions weren’t great. Firstly I didn’t think much of the packaging, the plastic metallic look cheapens it and it has a wobbly rubber wand... I DON’T LIKE FLEXI, RUBBERY WANDS!
Although on close inspections that comb-like wand is really quite special. It’s different to others; it’s almost rectangular, not circular. Now, I don’t know if it’s the shape or the distance between the teeth, or both, but the comb grips the lashes like no other and really does sculpt them to new heights.

The mascara coats the lashes generously, which you don’t always get with rubber wands (I’m thinking about Revlon’s Custom Eyes Mascara) no need to keep dipping here. As for the formula, it’s not thick or runny, it’s just right. It isn’t wet or messy, but it does give you plenty of time to “play” before drying. There was no smudging or clumping and it lasted all day, these pictures were taken after eight hours at work.

The Result: Completely Flutterful lashes!

And the flexi wand has won me over! Best of all it washes off easily with regular face wash, no residue flakes or fibers left over.

L'Oreal's False Lash Telescopic Mascara... definately still worth it! Available now £10.99 at Boots and whilst you're there, it's buy one, get one half price on selected L'Oreal.


  1. I got this and I really like it too....for all the same reasons. The wand kinda gives a different feel if you turn it, there is a almost flat side and this really grabs the lashes. I did get a little fall out/flaking on my upper cheeks after a few hours but nothing horrible. Great pics x

    1. Thank you Angie and you're so right about turning the wand. I think it's one of those mascaras that gets better everytime you use it! x
