How are you all doing? Before I get on with the review, I would like to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my previous posts, it means a lot to me 🙂 I’ll be reviewing one of the most loved mascaras from L’Oreal – Telescopic Shocking Extensions. The name is quite intriguing, right? But trust me, it does give an extension like effect. Read on to know more!

Its Liquid Extension formula coats and lengthens lashes from root to tip for shocking length and intensity. Clump-Free. Flake-Free. Smudge-Free. Ophthalmologist tested. Allergy tested. Suitable For Sensitive Eyes and Contact Lens Wearers.
My Take on L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara:
I’m going to sound like a complete fan throughout the review 😛 just saying! I love this mascara so much. It’s just perfect! The things I look for in a mascara – 1. Should be lengthening (I seriously don’t mind spider lashes) 2. Should give me volume! (Who doesn’t want thick lashes?) 3. Should hold up the curl. The 3rd point matters to me the most! I have long but straight lashes. I always curl my lashes before applying mascara, but after a while, they drop down to being sad and straight, but this mascara didn’t do that to me, it held up the curl!
It comes in a silvery grey slender tube. Looks simple but nice. It closes tightly, so there are less chances of the mascara to dry out in the tube. The blue writing indicates that it’s waterproof and the pink one is for non-waterproof formula. The wand of the mascara is so skinny. The bristles catch each eyelash and coat the mascara evenly. It separates each lash giving maximum length and volume. It’s also perfect for bottom lashes because the wand is so skinny.
The formula of the mascara is watery, so you can layer this mascara 265 times: P I have done it and it doesn’t look bad at all. It gives long intense lashes. I have even tried layering it with another mascara and works just as well. It does not flake at all! I always get bits of flakey mascara under my eyes but nothing like that happens with L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara.
Left : without mascara ; Right : 2 coats of mascara
I have the waterproof one, but I’m definitely thinking of repurchasing it in a non-waterproof version. It’s very difficult to remove. No matter what eye makeup remover I use, it doesn’t budge. There’s always some residue left over. I have sensitive eyes, but trust me, it didn’t give me blood-shot eyes like other mascaras would.
Pros of L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara:
