So is it really worth the hype? no not really... I do think it could be an ok mascara for some but certainly not for me. I've definitely used other mascaras which are better and it just doesn't give the volume like my beloved L'Oreal Telescopic. I find that it leaves a clumpy look to the lashes which I absolutely hate and it doesn't give any length just a slight curl and clumpy look.
That's just my honest opinion, obviously everyone has different eye shapes and lash lengths so it may be good for others but it's not good enough for me. However, I'm glad I gave it a go... I've been using it when I've applied lashes just to make them blend into my own and also to use it up as I hate wasting things. I'll be repurchasing L'Oreal Telescopic very soon!
