Review: L'Oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara

Hey my lovelies! Gahh I was so tired after work so planned on spending the rest of the day in bed but then I realised I'm going to have to get out of bed to get food, so I may as well do something else useful whilst I'm up. you may or may not know I am a slight hoarder of mascaras...I think it's my favourite beauty product alongside lip pencils possibly...I just love anything that enhances eyes, or lashes, or eye colour 

Normally I'll buy about 2 or 3 new mascaras a month, but I've been good recently and only buy one if I need it (or if it looks super cool)

L'Oreal's Telescopic used to be my all time favourite mascara until it ran out and became super expensive so I played around with cheaper alternatives..and then Boots had their 3 for 2 offer so I came crawling back and thought that to make up for abandoning this mascara for so long, I'll do a quick review. This one is slightly different as it promises "cleanly defined, well separated lashes" as well as length. 

Firstly, pictures: (Btw please excuse the spots all over my face...I'm putting that down to not enough sleep/not enough water....oh yes, and the bucket loads of chocolate I've been eating.)

Before mascara:

After 1 coat:

After 3 coats:

After as many coats as I felt like doing + bottom lashes coated:

Pros: Consistency is not dry like a lot of mascaras I've used 
       : Non- clumping 
       : Nice design 
       : Doesn't flake off like you get with a lot of mascaras know when it goes all "bitty" 
       : Actually lengthens and defines 

Cons: Too expensive (for me anyway) 

So in conclusion, I love this mascara, it's deffo great for girlies (or guylies) with short lashes

Check it out in either Superdrug or Boots for £10.99...They are both doing their 3 for 2 promo on cosmetics so it's worth it if you're wanting to top up your beauty supplies 

Let me know how you find it :-)

Happy Autism Awareness Day!

This isn't going to be a long post....for real this time, not like when I say it won't be and then 50 paragraphs later I realise I may have waffled on a tad....nope. 

Just wanted to say Happy Autism Awareness Day....It's nice to see that more light is being shined on this topic rather than it be swept under the rug....this is something that affects millions of people worldwide, my twin brother being one of them, and something that many people do not know much if you can do something to support this cause then do.
