Loreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara: Review and Swatches

From the company:
L’OrĂ©al introduces liquid extensions in a bottle, with new Telescopic™ Shocking Extensions™ mascara, a new generation of lash length. In one motion lashes are separated, intensified, and look shockingly lengthened for an intense make-up result.
  • Clump-free, flake-free, smudge-free
  • Ophthalmologist and allergy tested.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

I find this mascara to define my lashes and give them a "clean" look. I wouldn't say this boosted volume, which is why I apply this after curling my lashes with my shiseido eyelash curler. I love the sleek packaging and chose the color Carbon Black.

I was in need of a skin tone eyeliner for my waterline. I find white eyeliners to be too harsh and unnatural looking. This eyeliner is creamy and pigmented. I haven't tried the other colors in this range, but am loving "Nude", a skin tone color that brightens up my eyes.
