L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

Directions of Use 
I like to wiggle the wand as close to my roots as possible all the way to the tip of my lashes. I especially like to use this mascara for my bottom lashes!

Main Ingredients

I see it sell for anywhere around $8-10 for the 8.7ml mascara.

I rarely do any reviews on mascaras because I hardly get any good results on my Asian eye lashes. My lashes are very stubborn and straight, I just result to false lashes 90% of the time. Also, because of my Asian monolids, it covers half the length of my natural lashes. It's a pain to review because I'm disappointed almost all the time - either the mascara sucks or my lashes just gets me super frustrated. Anyway, here's a look at my lashes.

Okay, for an Asian, I have pretty good lashes when my eyes are closed. 
However once opened... WHAT LASHES?!?!? Nada. 

I feel that the mascara did a great job by adding volume and length to my lashes. It also gathers my lashes nicely together without making it look like spider legs. My lashes got shaped to nice pretty triangles and there are no clumps. The only thing I'm still not satisfied with is that it does not keep my lashes curled at all. I heat-curled my lashes but the curl was gone within 5 minutes. There's a little bit of smudging throughout the day but not to an extend where I'm bothered. 

For the price, I think it's a little high in comparison to other drugstore brands. It didn't get me the results I wished for so I think that's why the price is steep. I have seen the results on girls without Asian eye lashes and they look PHENOMENON!! So in that case, totally worth it! 

Another thing I really loved is the the applicator - it claims to have 200 bristles!! I didn't count - that would drive my eyes nuts! However, I didn't have trouble reaching those hard-to-reach lashes. I also didn't make a mess when I apply the mascara to my bottom lashes. I LOVE the way my bottom lashes look with this mascara! 

I hope this is useful for you. If you tried this mascara, let me know what you think!!
