L’Oreal Telescopic Clean Definition

L’Oreal Telescopic Clean Definition mascara says that it will give you no clumps and just defined lashes. It certainly delivers on those counts. This is not a mascara to use if you want to add “oomph” to your look but it works well for everyday wear. Your lashes will look longer but still natural.
