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