mascara face-off: givenchy phenomen'eyes vs l'oreal's telescopic explosion review.

it's not everyday i find drugstore beauty product and a high end cosmetic that look as much alike as l'oreal's telescopic explosion mascara (pictured below) and givenchy's phenomen'eyes (at left).

both wands consist of a spiky rubber koosh ball that gets coated in product while in the tube, that you attack little sections of lashes with, for a very thorough effect.

on the whole, i'm a fan of both because i love dramatic lashes, but the l'oreal version retails for around $7.99, and phenomen'eyes sells at sephora for $29. where's the $20+ difference? in the formula. the givenchy formula is significantly less thick - yielding a less clumpy finished effect.

also, look out for the latest version of phenomen'eyes - phenomen'eyes waterproof - which will be on counters starting in may 2010.

This is being much talked about...but does it give the suitable required look or is difficult to use and get the necessary effect?
