L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara. Have you tried it?

L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara

L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara + Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara

Do you ever layer your mascara?

My best friend has been complaining about how terrible this mascara is, so she passed it on to me to try. I already had on a coat of my Covergirl Lash Blast, but I applied this over that. Right away my lashes were thick and clumped together. Quickly, I grabbed my Tweezerman Lash Comb and combed out the clumps. I applied two coats and combed my lashes through. And wow! I had some major volume. When I went out that night, I got asked if my lashes were real, which is really rare for me. I didn't have any smudges or flakes by the end of the night.

I did the same thing today as well and I loved the results again. I love that you can reach the corner lashes really well and that you can build so much volume so quick!

I haven't tried this mascara on its own and I'm not too sure if I will. But, I know I will continue using this as a layering mascara to build very dark, voluminous lashes.

This mascara has a terrible rating on Makeupalley (Currently 2.6/5 stars with a 34% repurchase rate). The main con reviewers are complaining about is that it's very clumpy. I think a metal lash comb is the way to go for clumps - It's definitely a must-have if you're a fan of thick lashes..

Here were my results today. I didn't go too thick. I applied one coat of Covergirl Lash Blast and one coat of Telescopic Explosion.

L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara Results

So I'm curious. Have you tried this mascara? What did you think of it??


  1. wow - your lashes are gorgeous. :O I wish mine looked like that :)

  2. no, i haven't but now i want to!!! i need that metal lash comb STAT, i have several but they're plastic and they always break on me...womp womp

    your lashes i must say ARE PERFECTION!!!

  3. Your lashes look mega long! I always use a metal tooth comb to get any clumps's a must have! Great post xxx

  4. Never tried this because of the bad reviews. But you have great results with using a lash comb! Maybe I will pick a tube up...

  5. Ehh this mascara for me = no bueno/=
    I got this the first time it came out but it just clumped and clumped but I'm personally the kind of girl that likes to put it on and go.
    I'm glad its workingg out for you!(=

  6. I've tried it and really liked the results, I also felt it really extended my lashes? I didn't get much volume however, but then I only applied it by itself. I didn't think about applying it on top of another mascara so will deffo try that! :)

    Aysh xoxo

  7. I also tried using it after I applied my favorite mascara .. && WOW it left my lashes soooo clumby && my lashes got stuck together..but I should definitly try the eyelash comb trick :)

  8. wow thats fab, going to give it a go


  9. i bought this recently and have only used it a few times. i mainly purchased it to use in the corners and maybe on my bottom lashes. the stick is a little longer than i'd like, but it's okay.

    ps: i love my metal lash comb! so great if mascara gets too clumpy :)

  10. i hated this mascara sooooo much that i went out and got my usual covergirl lash blast the very next day, so basically i spent money on something new and then spent more to go back to what works for me.... also tried the liner that goes with it, hated it with a passion! could work if only the wards were different

  11. WOW you got amazing results with these! I`ve always loved L`oreal telescopic!! The unique wand ball shape lets you get at the tiniest lashes. Seriously I have bought EVERY mascara out there and I really do love this one. The bad reviews surprise me actually. I didn`t find it to be too clumpy, but then everybody`s perception of it is different i guess.

  12. your lashes look PHENOMENAL! May I ask where you purchased the lash comb? I would love to get one for myself

  13. Not sure how old this is, but try other way around which is what I do, telescopic first than thicker after!
