A New Favorite.

So for those of you who know me well, you may know that I have worn the same mascara forever. My mom introduced me to L'Oréal's Lash Out years ago. Every time I have tried to venture out into the vast land of mascara to find something new, I have been sorely disappointed and regretful that I'd strayed and spent my money elsewhere. (Note: RiteAid allows you to return opened makeup if you're unsatisfied with the product. Just keep your receipt.)

About four months ago, I found myself in need of a new tube of mascara. When I arrived at the store, I found that all L'Oréal mascaras were "Buy one. Get one free." If you've ever purchased mascara, you know that one little tube with a whopping .27 fl. oz. can run you anywhere from $7-$10. So the "Buy one. Get one free." deal easily motivated me to stock up. However, they only had two tubes of my standard kind in the Black/Brown color I always get. (Regular Black always looks way too harsh on my eyes.) So I decided to once again risk the possibility of disappointment, and try a new kind.

Telescopic® Clean Definition Mascara, it's called. I'll admit, I was very skeptical considering the No Clump Brush™ is so thin and long, with few bristles. But I found that the thin brush allows you to easily coat the lashes without weighing them down, resulting in a very natural look. The sparsely placed bristles allow for a combing effect, keeping lashes separated and clump free. And it perfectly lengthens my lashes (up to 60% they say). So I'm sold. Dare I say, I've found a new favorite? I know... hard to believe, but I think it's true.

Could you please send your last paragraph to Loreal because it really sounded like a commercial.

oooh, sounds good! my go-to mascara is Loreal's Original Voluminous. I like dark black dramatic mascara, though. I love new make up finds. Good tip about Rite Aid. Do they really let you return it? That is freaking amazing. I will start buying make up there, then.

Does it come in waterproof? And lindsay... please invite me to your blog.

Amiee, RiteAid really does let you return it, even after you've opened it to test it. Just make sure you keep the receipt.

Sherine, to be honest I don't really like waterproof, so I've never paid attention to whether or not they have it. I tried to look it up and I can't see it, so maybe they don't.

And yes, Lindsay... please invite me to your blog also! :)

Do you still like this mascara as much 2 months later?

Lindsay said...

Oh, and sorry I don't have a blog at this point in time. I just have a gmail account. If/when I do have a blog, I'll invite you.

I do still like this kind two months later. It is starting to get a little old, so I have to thin it a bit with water... so really, I should start a new tube.
