Just Save Januray: L'Oreal Telescopic Mascra Review

So as it is Just Save January still and I ran out of mascara (go me) I needed a new tube, I also 
needed to keep it inexpensive. My friend and I were wandering the aisles of Ulta and she said that when she worked there, a few years ago, the L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara was really popular and I thought I'd take it back a few years and give it a whirl! I got it in Black/Brown.
I am really pleased with this mascara, in a lot of ways it reminds me of the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. It dries similarly, does a very similar job lengthening and feels about the same in weight on the lashes. I will say if you try to build up more than two coats it clumps. This mascara holds a curl pretty well for not being waterproof and doesn't flake throughout the day. 

The Brown/Black is pretty black and it does do a lot of lengthening and not as much volumizing, but it is a lengthening mascara. L'Oreal claims that it lengthens lashes by 60%, which I think it does. I'm pretty impressed with this mascara and I really enjoy using it. 

Over all I have mostly, if not only, positive things to say about this mascara and understand why according to my friend "everyone was buying it" a couple years ago. It's good stuff and hold up throughout the day. Now...is it so good I feel I would dash out to repurchase it? I'm not sure, but if I came across it I would pick it up and if I wanted a drugstore option for the Roller Lash this would be my guy!
Have you tried the Telescopic Mascara back in the day or recently? Tell me what you thought!
If you like the makeup look I'm wearing here I will have a tutorial up on Wednesday for it. Hope you have a gorgeous day.
