There’s only one thing we love better than a beauty bargain, and that’s a royal beauty bargain! If you’re with us, then you’ll be wanting to add this absolute gem to basket right away. We’ve uncovered the exact mascara Zara Tindall uses and it’s in the Amazon sale right now.
We interviewed Alista Ristevski, one of Zara’s hair and makeup artists, to find out which products she uses on Princess Anne’s daughter, and one of the standout products from our chat was L’Oréal Paris’ Telescopic Mascara.
At the time of the interview, the mascara was £10, which is still a great price, but it’s currently up for grabs in the Amazon sale for only £8.50. So it’s a great time to snap one up if you want to give it a try.
Alista’s verdict? "The cheapest thing I have in my makeup kit is my L’Oréal Paris Telescopic £10 mascara. And I honestly can’t live without,” she told us. “The perfect eye wand and the texture of the mascara is perfect. It’s not too thick and it’s great for volume and I can build up the product as I wish. Also easy to remove."
Leanne Bayley, HELLO!'s Director of Lifestyle & Commerce is a fan of the royal-loved mascara. "I love mascara and I'm not loyal to one particular brand, but the L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara is one I reach for time and time again. It just gives such precise application - which is great when I'm busy and don't want to spend ages combing mascara through my lashes. I'm lucky that I have quite good natural lashes, but the lengthening on this mascara is unreal - they actually look a bit like false lashes. I'm not usually a fan of a flat brush like this one, but it works really well on the lower lashes, which I love to accentuate. I will say that the wand is a bit of a pain to get back into the tube though, but other than that, it's great."
Amazon reviewers love it just as much - the product has an impressive 70% five-star rating and it has just short of 6.5k positive reviews on the shopping portal.
It’s also available at Boots for £8.79, and it’s been equally as well received there, with 1592 positive reviews. Shoppers have it the thumbs up for quality, value for money, application and appearance.
Says one reviewer: “I've used many brands of mascara over the years but have to say that I always end up going back to L'oreal. This mascara is wonderful, the brush ensures that the mascara goes on evenly and it separates the lashes thereby eliminating the "clump" effect!
“It does not smudge or run but comes off very easily at the end of the day. In all, I have now made the conscious decision that I will stick to what is best.. And that is definitely the telescopic mascara by L’Oreal.”
Alista uses the mascara for occasion makeup - "For major events I tend to lean into soft glam, highlighting features whether it is soft pink cheeks or darker eyes," she told us.
