Anyway, on to one of my new obsessions!
I hardly ever purchase drugstore makeup - I seriously only use Maybelline Great Lash. So I went out on a limb to purchase L'Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions mascara on the recommendation of the Muse from Musings of a Muse.
She said that this delivers length and maintains curl while not providing a terrible amount of volume. I would say that's really accurate! I wanted something for length so I could pair it up with a volumizing mascara for super drama!
I picked up the waterproof formula but I might just go back for the regular formula, too!
The brush on this is really nice. L'Oreal claims that there are 200 bristles (not that I've cared to count!) to help grab all your lashes. I would say you definitely need to curl your lashes for the best results.
I think it's adorable the that tube actually looks like a telescope - so nifty! I'm so pleased with this mascara - zero flaking, fading, or smudging.
It's definitely not going to give you volume, but it will maintain your curl all day and wing your lashes out to baby-doll like proportions. My favorite way to wear it? On top of tarte primer and mascara for truly incredible drama!
I don't have any comparison pics but I promise to update ASAP!
On a different note - what have I been up to since dropping off the map for foreverrrrr? Well, I was off work due to my cold so I managed to watch all the episodes of Sherlock. So amazing! Seriously, if you haven't seen it, watch it ASAP!
Of course, watching Sherlock led me to the wonderful world of "Wholock" on Pinterest. (Doctor Who + Sherlock = Wholock) Also, there's some very twee Harry Potter / Sherlock mashups like this:
Adorableeeee! I don't own this picture but if someone knows who to credit it to, please let me know!
Anyway, pick up this mascara for about $10 in drugstores. (I would post a link for you but I can't find any sites where this is reasonably priced.) Also, make sure to watch Sherlock and Doctor Who on Netflix!
