I tried the £12 L'Oreal mascara that's gone viral on TikTok and found out for myself why it has such a bad rep | The Sun
A BEAUTY enthusiast has spilled the tea on the viral L'Oreal mascara that's taken over our social media feeds.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few days, you will know that there's been some drama amongst make-up fans on TikTok.
Earlier this week, social media beauty influencer Mikayla Nogueira uploaded a video where she shared her thoughts on the new L’Oreal Telescopic Lift mascara.
But although Mikayla claimed to her 14.4million fans that this product would be hard to compete with, many eagle-eyed viewers insisted she was rocking falsies in the video.
Since then, millions have accused the influencer of lying to promote the mascara, however Mikalya has not yet responded to the controvery.
The clip had also reached one UK make-up fan, Olivia Ancell (@theoliviasaurusrex), who decided to test it for herself – and here's what she had to say.

''I'm sure you've all heard about this product by now,'' she chuckled in her video.
To give the mascara a fair chance, Olivia, who has close to a whopping 430k fans, first started by curling her lashes.
Once done, the make-up enthusiast began applying the mascara using the flat side of the wand to deposit the product.
To make for a more fluttery look, Olivia then switched to the comb side and started working her way through the lashes.

''It definitely looks dramatic – but not in a good way,'' Olivia demonstrated the results after applying the mascara to her bottom lashes as well.
Desperate to improve the look, the beauty lover then tried brushing with the comb side – however, this only made things worse.
''It just got clumpier and clumpier,'' Olivia revealed, adding that the process had also made her eyeball hurt.
Mortified at how her lashes were looking, she left no room for doubt – the product's not worth your money.
''It's an absolute no from me.
''I’ve seen this work for some people but I am not one of them unfortunately.''
Fellow beauty fans flocked to comments to thank Olivia for the honest review, with one writing: ''Your reviews are the ones I always trust.''
A second agreed, saying: ''Finally an honest take on this mascara!
