Review! L’ORÉAL Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara a Benefit Dupe???

14 Mar

I’ve been using L’ORÉAL  Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara for about a month now,


You can get it at Ulta or drug store for $9.99 USD.  Ulta link is here.

First, some pictures.

Without mascara


Here is the effect with L’ORÉAL  Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

I’m not wearing any mascara on the bottom lashes.

My thoughts

Obviously, the effect is pretty good.  I mean bam…lashes, right?!

The Pros-

Long lasting


No smudging

Not cakey

Pow! Lashes!

Easy to remove with cleanser

No running

No raccoon eyes


Flakes on bottom lashes.  I’m not having the problem with I wear it on my top lashes.

Would I repurchase?  Yes,  it’s ten bucks.  Great deal for a great mascara.

Is this a Benefit dupe?

The effect is very similar.  These are  my lashes on Yes, They’re Real.

Review – They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit

29 Oct

I’ve been liking this Mascara since May.  I received a sample in my Sephora Birthday Gift and in September I received another sample  at the LashBash.

They’re Real! gives you huge lashes.  Check out the evidence here:

The formula wears well and it doesn’t smear.  It does get a bit clumpy when you are nearing the end of the tube.  The brush is plastic with plastic hard bristles that can sometimes scratch your eyelid.   Or that’s just my issue.

Have you tried They’re Real!?

Make-up Hack – How to extend the life of your Mascara

23 Jul

Let’s just start my saying that I’m cheap.  I hate having to buy new Mascara because the MAC Haute and Naughty I’ve been really into lately is $20 a tube.   I really like this mascara because it’s two-in-one.  Hence the name.  😀

  Two brushes in one !


Anyway, I was trying to figure out how to get the most of my mascara when I came across some advice that said to add 5 drops of Saline solution to the tube of mascara when it’s starting to dry out.  And guess what?  It’s freaking works!!!!


reminder- don’t share mascara and always throw it out if you have had an eye infection as you can re-infect yourself.  The same goes for toothbrushes.
