Most Helpful Positive Review BEST waterproof mascara for my hooded eyes & long lashes!
It is so hard to find a good waterproof mascara that doesn't smear all over my eye brow ridge due to my eyelashes being long in combination with my 'hooded' eyes + natural face oil. This one does not smear! It also washes off with soap and water or, even better, with oil. I use natural carrier oils to get my mascara off, usually grape seed or coconut oil. It works like a charm.
This mascara does not clump all over the place. It dries normally, meaning it does not dry too fast and it does not stay wet too long - which means you don't have to worry about it getting all over your hooded eyes because it is too wet AND you don't have to rush to put it on b/c it dries too fast. Perfect.
This mascara is right up my ally - leaves me with pretty, feminine full (yet separated lightly) and soft lashes. The name is perfect for this mascara as it does give you that 'Bambi' doe-eyed look. I was so SO happy to see they have it in waterproof b/c a lot of mascaras do not give you a waterproof version.
This mascara has that wonderful plastic/stiff bristle head that I love. This head is also perfect for the lower lashes, if I do put mascara on the lower lashes (I find it makes me look older when I do this). You can layer this on for a more dramatic look at night or simply do one coat during the day for that wide eyed, soft and full bambi eye look.
This is my new favorite everyday mascara and will be replacing my previous higher end mascara that is double the cost of this one. I never thought I would find a comparable mascara b/c my higher end one is fabulous - but this one is definitely comparable and I could not be happier. However, time will tell. We all know what it is like to have our favorite product discontinued by the manufacturer and we are left to find something to replace it. That is the worst. I hope they keep this one forever.
If you are looking for a waterproof mascara that does not smudge with your hooded eyes and washes off yet lasts all day long, this is it.
Most Helpful Critical Review A bit too sticky
I have tried several different brands and types of mascara over the years, all of which seem to give the same promise of fuller, longer lashes. I was excited to try the Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara Long Lasting Volume because when the term "Bambi eye" is used, it sounds like it would have great results right? First I'll start by saying that this mascara certainly lived up to the waterproof portion! This last weekend I traveled for my child's sports event so of course with that comes a lot of swimming in the hotel pool....this mascara didn't smudge, didn't run, didn't really go anywhere! I loved that aspect of it! If you're looking for a waterproof mascara, this one will do the trick! Now....what I didn't care for was that this seemed to be very sticky after applying. It dried rather quickly however it always seemed like my top lashes were sticking to each other (I don't apply to my bottom lashes.) I found it very annoying to constantly feel that tugging feeling and having to adjust my lashes to feel normal. To me, that alone turns me off about this product. I've tried it a couple of different ways, including wiggling to brush a bit as I applied it to make sure it wasn't clumping and just winging it and putting it on, neither way seemed to make a difference. Again, the waterproof part is great, but the stickiness wasn't good for me and I didn't notice much of a difference with the way my lashes looked over all—-I didn't see any bolder "Bambi" look as expected.

My mom is the reason i got this because she wanted to try it and i eventually did too, luckily i had a gift card so i didn't spend my actual money on this. it's a good product but it weighs my lashes down after awhile and it's just a little clumpy. i put mascara on my bottom lashes too and sometimes my top and bottom lashes will stick together.
Not worth it

I was excited to try this but it was clumpy right from the start and hard to apply.
Lashes for DAYSSSSS

I bought this mascara on a whim because my usual mascara was sold out and this momma needs her mascara. I wasn't expecting much, just something "to hold me over" until my usual was back in stock. BOY OH BOY was I impressed! I am a busy, working mother, so I need heavy duty stuff to last through the day. This mascara is waterproof, without any clumps, and makes my little lashes look long and fluffy. I love it!! My new go-to.
Great mascara for the price. Brush is great. No clumping.

I have a hard time finding mascara that wont flake or smudge. The best I used was a korean mascara I ordered online. Rather than wait 3-5 weeks in the mail for my order to arrive, I've been searching for something a little closer for me to buy. This mascara so far hasn't smudged, doesn't come off from sweating, and fans my mascara well. Will probably be purchasing again.
My New Favorite Mascara!
Charitybeth from Kentucky
I have hooded eye lids and it's been impossible to find a mascara that doesn't transfer upon application or smear throughout the day, even waterproof. This mascara's applicator and formula really elongates and spreads out my sparse lashes while avoiding the transfer to lid or smearing breakdown! If it does start to come off, which never happens until after a full day of wear, it only does so in small pieces, which avoids all those black streaks. It's my very favorite now and I wear it everyday!

I would buy it but the brush doesn't spread them that good

Got the black mascara texture is great
Kristina from Ga
Love this mascara! I always run my mascara under warm-hot water for about 15 seconds before rolling between my hands and applying to my lashes. I get so many compliments when I wear this mascara! I only apply two thin coats and it really lengthens them!
Tried Something New, It's Good!

This mascara has a different wand than I'm used to, so I had to trust it would work the way I want. It is smooth, doesn't clump and is truly waterproof.
Not the best
Dani from New York
The formula is very wet so it makes my lashes stick together.. are usually curl my lashes then apply a light coat of mascara and after I curl my lashes again and apply a light layer of mascara but with this mascara after I went in with the second coat my lashes looked gross they basically looked like 4 thick lashes. ! & I let the first coat dry.
Great Formula & Wand!!

Definitely waterproof! Product both lengthens and adds volume to lashes (:
Debbalina from New York, NY
I love this mascara my eyelashes always look longer fuller people think I'm wearing fake lashes. This mascara separates all my hairs and gives them each a nice look and coat I'm obsessed with this. The only struggles is for the bottom lashes the wand is thick and it can paint your skin if not careful enough other than that it's so worth it.
Not a great mascara

Personally, I didn't like the brush and the mascara dried out quickly.
Leaves my lashes with length & bold

Great quality and price + waterproof!!
Quetzal from Texas
Super dark, looks great on, but none of that matters if its advertised as waterproof, then it better be! Major raccoon eyes after swimming. Fail! I would take it back, but I used points so not worth my time. Hope this saves others from wasting theirs.

Not as advertised
Did not do anything for my lashes
Kayyla from Oklahoma City
Disappointed that I wasted my money on this. I have just normal lashes and this didn't give me length or anything.
Love it since the first application!
Gf from Springfield
It's applies effortlessly and doesn't clump in the slightest. Gives the length and curl without being too dramatic.
Sam from NY
Very clumpy. I gave it a week and a half and into the garbage it went.
shkstewa from Nineveh, IN
This mascara applied a little clumpy and thick, so I tried to fix it with my fingers but it dried too quickly. My lashes were a little darker but didn't look longer or thicker. You couldn't even tell I was wearing mascara afterward during a video I took. It did stay on until I washed it off though.
Pinkqueen93 from Athens AL
I am always searching for a mascara that actually adds length and volume like it claims. This one delivers! The brush does a pretty good job of separating my lash and not clumping them together like a lot of mascaras tend to do. The price is great as well.
Absolutely love this mascara, Goes on smooth and effortless
tbcs from Tampa
The Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara Lasting Volume is an amazing product. It is so simple to use and not a lot of contact off lashes when applying. It lasts all through the night and makes my eyelashes look full and pop out.
Separates, Curls, and Lengthens
Iris from Modesto, Ca
This is by far my favorite drug store mascara at the moment. I was a bit skeptical at first since it has a spiky plastic bristle brush. My opinion of the brush quickly changed when I noticed how well the brush was grabbing onto my lashes! When using this mascara I like to pull the top lashes straight up and the edges out to the side. This gives a wide eye look. The mascara lengthens, curls, and separates my lashes perfectly. It does not give me the crunchy spidery look that many other drugstore mascaras give. I currently prefer this mascara over my ride or die IT cosmetics superhero mascara.
