The Ultimate Waterproof Mascara


Waterproof mascaras have come a long way from being gloopy and impossible to remove – in fact, this one is the exact opposite. As a bit of a crier, waterproof mascara is a must on any emotionally triggering occasion (eg. watching The Last Song), and on long days where I need my mascara to last.

This is where L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof Mascara comes in. What a mouthful. I’ve been a huge fan of this mascara after picking it up a while ago, and after putting it to the ultimate test today, I thought it was time to write a blog post on it.

First of all, like all of L’Oreal Telescopic mascaras, it lengthens your lashes to give you lashes you didn’t think you had. It grabs every single lash and pulls it upwards and outwards. It even keeps my naturally straight lashes curly all day long.

Secondly, it is budge-proof and non-flaky. It lasts all day on the bottom lashes without giving you the panda eye effect, and doesn’t crumble down your face as the day goes on.

Thirdly, and most importantly, this mascara is waterproof. Pretty obvious from the title, but I really put this stuff to the test today. I’d worn this mascara a few times to the gym, hoping that it would last through my post-gym shower. And it did – every time. Today I went for a swim, sat in the steam room for twenty minutes and then had a shower, and the mascara hadn’t budged. If that doesn’t make this mascara a wonder product then I don’t know what does.

Heck, this mascara isn’t just waterproof, it’s life-proof.

Tomorrow’s Friday – have a good one everyone! <3

    I live by this mascara! But it seems so hard to get hold of! I’ve got mega short lashes and this seems to help a hell of a lot!
    Great review!

    I’m a huge mascara junkie, but I haven’t tried the L’Oreal telescopic yet. This review really makes me want to pick it up!
