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.
