I bought this Loreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara because I always wanted the one that Givenchy made but didn't want to spend that much money on it. So, when this one came out, I figured I would give it a shot.
I always thought the the old fashioned, long mascara brushes were a bit large and scary. Who hasn't poked themselves in the eyes ??? But, after using this mascara wand, I think that I prefer the older versions.
First of all, with such a short brush, you have more of the stick, which is full of mascara and it touches your lashes while you're trying to apply. This causes major clumps of mascara that gets on your lashes. So, while you're trying to get rid of the globs of mascara, you make a mess. Plus, the brush is quite small, so it takes longer to apply mascara to all of your lashes and it's pretty hard to get them perfect because before you're even done, the mascara is drying.
Needless to say, I'm quite disappointed. I thought it was long overdo that new mascara wands were made but I think the old ones were pretty great compared to these little brushes that just make it take longer to apply your makeup. Definitely not worth the hassle, especially when you're trying to get ready for work in the morning.
