Product Review: L'oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara

Hey everyone!
So what I want to do, in terms of a blog schedule of sorts, is have a makeup look and a product review/nail post, each every other day.
Today's product review is on L'oreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara, which came out a while ago. It is a lot like Givenchy's Phenomen'eyes Mascara in that it has the same sort of brush idea: a mascara brush shaped like a ball. However, it does have a much longer wand than Phenomen'eyes, which might make it easier or harder to use, depending on your preference. I can't compare it formula-wise to phenomen'eyes because I don't have/ have never used phenomen'eyes. The formula for this has never been a problem for me (a lot of people say that it's too wet or goopy) but I don't find that it does anything incredible to my lashes.. I do suppose it adds some length, but I've seen many better mascaras. The one thing I like a lot is the ball applicator, I find it makes putting on mascara very easy and makes it possible to get all of your lashes precisely where you want them to go.
