I cannot tell you how many mascaras I have purchased in my lifetime. Top that off with the fact that I’m a sucker for cute packaging and I have literally purchased one from every brand under the sun. Think Dior, Benefit, Mac, YSL, Givenchy, the list goes on and on and I am never that impressed. When it comes down to it, my absolute favorite mascara is a simple $8 dollar one from the drugstore, L’Oréal Paris’ Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black. I continuously buy this one over again and never travel without it.
This mascara elongates and separates your lashes because the brush is so skinny. It’s sort of like what skinny jeans do for your legs, but for your eyelashes. Apply a couple of coats of this first and apply a more voluminous one on top if you want a little more oomph and you literally can’t be beat it.
