Most Helpful Positive Review Lash Lovin'
A brief history of myself and mascara. First, you should know it is my "must." My Face can be void of everything outside of lotion, but it'll almost never be without mascara! Second, as much as I love mascara, I'm going on about 10 yrs of looking like I am a hybrid of human and raccoon by the end of a day, when wearing mascara; or, ultimately, I appear as though I'm sick and/or severely sleep deprived. Why, you may wonder? Well, I have yet to find a mascara that doesn't bleed into my under eyes by day's end. The comments, such as "are you feeling okay?", "you need to get some sleep", and "tough day/night?"...umm, well, they're constant confirmation that while I love mascara in the morning, it does not share the same sentiments about me by afternoon.
Now to convey my honest thoughts about L'Oreal's Bambi Eye Mascara. This mascara is beautiful applied. It's one of the few mascaras that I've found that truly does make my lashes look fuller and longer without the clumps. I don't have to struggle to try and brush out eyelashes stuck together, to wipe off excess mascara that has transferred from a clump to my eyelid, nor to worry about wiping off half my eye makeup to erase any mascara that has tried to reign over me. That, in itself, is fantastic!
Also, my lashes have a more natural look, rather than a look that warrants the question, "Whoa! Is the real you there somewhere under all that?" Again, a win!
The finale, does it stay put throughout the day, leaving me looking less animal-like and more of a functioning human? The answer: for the most part. It still seems to flake, leaving black specks under my eyes and on my eyelids; however, it doesn't bleed into my skin. So while I don't look as though I've been in a boxing match with a black sharpie after a few hours, I still have to remember to check on my face to brush away fallen comrades.
In the end, I really do like this mascara. I feel pretty wearing it; my eyes look happier, too. I'm definitely a Bambi eye girl now.
Most Helpful Critical Review Dries firm, no clumps, but final result looks sparse
Loreal Paris Bambi Eye Mascara is definitely not my favorite, but it's not at the bottom of my list either. Let's talk about the good. I absolutely loved that this formula dries firm, and stiff. I really dislike mascara formulas that stay kind of soft. It also dries pretty quickly between coats. I liked that the black color was rich, pigmented, and coated my lashes in just one coat. With two coats, I didn't experience any clumps. I'd also like to mention that I did actually cry once while testing this mascara. Although, it wasn't an ugly cry or anything, (just teared up and wiped away a few tears), I was actually pleasantly surprised that the mascara didn't smudge, or run from that. It was also easy to remove with micellar water. Now, the not so good. The first thing I noticed, was every time I would pull the wand out, there would be a massive blob of wasted mascara on the tip of the wand, that I would have to scrape off on the opening before applying. Although the wand separated my lashes fairly well with one coat, I do feel like it was a little too big to use on the inner corners of my lashes. Although I didn't experience clumps, I did feel like the mascara clumped my lashes together and made them look extra sparse with two coats. Two coats did start to look slightly spider leggy as well. And lastly, it did flake throughout the day. I don't think that I would purchase this mascara again, the number one reason being how it made my lashes look more sparse, and didn't lengthen as well as some of my favorite mascaras. For those reasons, I wouldn't recommend this to my friends.
Reviewed by 1816 customers Darker & longer spidery lashes
Culturallyinclined22 from Pembroke Pines, Fl
I wanted to share my review of a new makeup product. @bzzagent was kind enough to select me to review the L'Oreal Paris Bambi Eye Extra Noir Mascara. The formulation for this mascara is designed to be volumizing and give you a wide eyed look. I received this mascara in shade extra noir which is supposed to be an extra dark black with luminizing pigments. I found this formulation true to the description with a very pigmented, black color. The wand for this mascara is designed to have long & short bristles to allow you to separate & add definition to all of your lashes but I found it a little clunky & hard to use due to the large handle. It's not the hardest I've encountered but wasn't my favorite either. or instant eye-opening effect and volume now with an intense, luminous, ultra-black formula for a more intense Bambi Eye Effect. The brushes mix of long & short bristles provide lash by lash separation and definition, lifting and curling each lash to create a bigger, wide-eyed lash look with intense and bold lashes. I'd say my lashes look longer, darker, and spidery but they are not as intense or volumized as I've had with other mascaras. Overall, this is a nice drug store mascara & reasonably priced. I'd rate 3.5/5.0.
Boop! Opened my eyes right up!
Lexi from North Chicago, Il
Best mascara I've ever used! I have round protruding eyes that tend to look smaller, this opened my eyes right up! No clumping! No flakes! Dried quickly! Amazing!
Not worth it
Hannah from Michigan
Thin, dry formula. I have short, blonde eyelashes and this only added color, minimal length and no volume. I felt like the brush wouldn't grip onto my lashes.
Best Mascara I've Tried!
Makeup Lover from I love makeup!
This mascara is extremely lengthening, volumizing, and it doesn't get too clumpy. I have very short lashes and this makes them look amazing. I've been testing out some higher end mascaras and I can't find anything that beats this!
Sixela697 from Tx
It wasn't anything amazing definitely wouldn't be repurchasing. Doesn't work if you have straight lash's for a curl.
I would not buy this product again
Emily from Texas
I used this for three days and it hurt my eyes just by using the brush close to my lash line. On the third day I developed a painful bump on my upper landline. That's never happened to me so I know it was the mascara. Not happy with this product.
This is a wimpy mascara
RoadRunner from Pa
This provides color to lashes and that's about it. It just doesn't do anything one way or another for lashes. If you like very natural lashes, but just want them to not blend in to the eye makeup so much, or you have blonde lashes and want a tint... use this, or any other mascara on the market.
I would definitely buy this product again
stef from Youngstown,OH
I'm a Prestige make-up i saw this mascara with the lil Bambi on it and thought it was cute so I grabbed it. I absolutely love it over all the brands I've bought before. It gives me length and doesn't clump at all even after several layers
Stacy from Jacksonville Florida
Length and separation, great mascara!
Never buying anything else
A from 585
5 stars! Bambi eye will make your eyes pop, making your lashes appear longer than ever. Once you buy it, I don't think you'll be buying anything else.
Becca3 from Virginia
I'm a sucker for a good mascara & I think this may be my new favorite!!
Not for thick and heavy eyelashes
Jane the Doe from Phoenix
I bought this mascara thinking that it would help exaggerate my almond eyes and long thibk eyes lashes. Right when I applied the mascara my eyelashes were defiantly to heavy and the drooped down.
Gilles from Tx
This mascara definitely adds volume. My lashes are pretty short so I have curl, apply, curl again and apply again. But it's what works for me and it helps my lashes hold the curl. It doesn't add much length in my opinion. I've been using it for about 4 days so far and I haven't noticed any smudging or flaking. I usually go for skinnier brushes as just a preference it this ones pretty good. I'd recommend
Truly impressed and that is a first
DixiePixie from Texas
I have never used a mascara that I fell in love with the very first time I applied it. Usually the mascara is too moist for about a week, then it becomes manageable. Most times it's the brush that decides whether or not I like it, can I reach the inside corner, can I reach the roots of my lashes, does it apply too much or too little, does it seperate the lashes..these are the factors.
But this stuff truly impressed me, first application and since. The mascara was not so moist that it gooped, the brush was perfect. I have never used a mascara that I would be willing to say actually lengthened my lashes......until Bambi Eyes. I have been thinking of using false eyelashes but I now think that with the lash serum I'm using and this mascara, there will be no need. I am truly impressed.
Stays the same even after repeated use.
Velma from Armstrong BC Canada
I use the product most days. Even after repeated use this mascara still works as it is advertised. I found my new favourite
Better than my luxury mascara
Squid from South Carolina
So I bought this mascara just wanting to try something new. I was so surprised with the results!!! I'd been looking for my forever everyday and dramatic mascara and I got it. My luxury 28 dollar mascara could not compete with this one. Not only did it add incredible length and volume to my lashes but it was clump free. The only problem I have with this mascara is that it is a really buildable formula (and very wet) which could be a pro or con (I like big drama though). But after two or three coats I got everything I had been looking for.
Benefits you now have drug store competition
Queen V from Palatine, IL
I'm usually a Benefits They're Real girl but this is just as good and ½ the price! I'm hooked! No clumps, no smudging or smearing! It lengthens and curls! This is great!
I don't think I would buy this one again
Make up guru from Knoxville, TN
I don't like the brush. It doesn't add enough length.
Does not clump! Favorite mascara ever.
Christina Greene from Wilmington
This mascara is amazing. No clumps!
Nichol from Ohio
I really like this product and didn't make my eyelashes look long and pretty the only problem I have with it is that after a couple hours that started flaking off onto my cheeks other than that I liked it
Disney buff from Canada
Commercial is lame. Bambi has BROWN eyes not blue!! Feline has blue eyes.
Lashes for days.....
Kitten52 from Shelby County, Alabama
OMG I am so obsessed with this mascara. It has literally transformed my lashes to those OMG lashes. For once a product really does exactly what it claims and I am not disappointed at all. Goes on smooth, doesn't clump lashes together at all. If I was looking at someone else I would have to say they are probably wearing fake lashes because of how good they look but since it's me and I put it on I know their real and I just have to say their really amazing to say it the best.
Angie from Colorado
This is a nice product reminiscent of the covergirl clump crusher, but I prefer the wand on the covergirl. Bambi eye makes a big mess if used on the bottom lashes every time no matter how careful the application.
Best "cheap" mascara, ever.
CmmdQ from Indianapolis, IN
As an Asian with hooded eyes, I often have issues with:
1) My lashes looking full/voluminous, and
2) Getting my lashes to curl/have lift
L'Oreal Paris Bambi Eye Mascara allowed me to have both at impressive levels! I had previously continuously purchased Cover Girl's Clump Crusher, but this may have just replaced that as my go-to mascara. The price point is a bit higher, but the results are noticeable and worth it, in my opinion.
The only thing I would change is have one side include shorter bristles, or have an alternative product option with smaller bristles for corners/lower lashes, as I do have issues with this getting onto my eyelid during the application process, which I then need to remove with a q-tip (this happens during every application).
Good Lengthening Mascara
tiffanysreviews from Tucson, AZ
The L'Oréal Bambi Eyes Mascara has become my everyday go to. It's a wetter formula and has a silicone wand. No smudging or flaking. It provides nice length but not as much volume as drier formulas like L'Oréal Voluminous.
