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.

the amount of flakes from this mascara is unreal. I haven't even had it for a month and it seems to be drying out as well. I liked it at first application but it's too dry now and the flaking is just unbearable.
Alexandria from Texas
It doesn't clump or flake at all. It nicely separates the lashes & gives length. Definitely will repurchase.
great at first

When I first put this on, i was wowed! I've never seen so much length on my lashes and it didn't clump at all. however, there was major fall out after a couple of hours and the length was gone.
Jen from Milpitas, ca
First time using and I really like it. No clumping!
The BEST Mascara out there!!!
Wolfe from Virginia
This is by far the BEST mascara out there! I have tried lots & lots of very expensive to cheap mascaras. This beats them all including L'Oreal Paradise. I get so many compliments on my mascara. It doesn't flake, you can make you lashes wispy or heavy. Doesn't dry out fast either. Try it you won't regret it!
S from Arizona
I've been looking for a good mascara after my long-time favorite seems to have changed their formula for some reason .. anyway, I'm really loving this one. It really does give a long, fliuttery look. It separates my lashes nicely.. I will definitely repurchase.
Chels from Illinois
this is my new Holy grail. it isn't amazing freshly opened but after its been opened for a bit its amazing. I will continue to repurchase as long as they keep selling it. it also does not flake! or smudge
A good mascara
FG from NY
Overall it's a good mascara and does what it's supposed to do. I don't see it as life changing or really any different from other mascaras, but it does feel comfortable to wear and separates the lashes nicely. I'll most likely finish it but I don't really see myself repurchasing it.
Jennigrrl from North hollywood, ca
I really like this and it does make my lashes look good. I just wish it was a little thicker.
Too clumpy for me - really wanted to love it!
Caz from Wisconsin
This was super hyped so I picked it up because I like mascaras that give volume and maybe a little extra length. This one clumped my lashes together waaaaaay too much. I hadn't seen that in any of the YouTube reviews I watched which was surprising. I thought maybe it needed to dry out a bit so I stopped using it and would come back to it about once a week to see if that would help. The results were still the same and it was so disappointing. I threw it away after about a month and won't be repurchasing.
Not saying it's a bad mascara, but it didn't work for me. I don't have sparse eyelashes but maybe if someone has pretty full lashes to begin with this will work for them.
I Would not buy again

Hard on eyelashes. I can't use. Did make lashes longer.
Emily from Maryland
Flutteriest lashes ever. I have short lashes and this adds plenty of length, does not look spidery, does not flake
Better than high-end
Bex from CT
I love love love playing with different mascaras and am always on the hunt for the best one. This might be it! It gives me both length and volume and doesn't give me raccoon eyes, which has always been a struggle for me. I have even taken a nap with this on and it stays put!
I reach for this over my Buxom, Lancome, It, Benefit, and Too Faced mascaras, and a variety of mascaras from direct sales companies. If I could only have one mascara for the rest of my life, I think this would be it.
Not bad but not good
Taylor from Maryland
I've been trying out new mascaras. This one doesn't give my lashes any length or volume. I'll use it but won't repurchase.
Stephanierico86 from Madera ca
I hate my eyelashes because of how straight and thin they are but this mascara works great!! My my eyes look full and with a lot of volume!
Incredible length and volume!
JoAnne from Bay City, MI
This is a fabulous mascara!! My eyelashes looked so long and full it was insane. I have had a few people ask if I had false lashes when I use this!!
Not for me
DMarie from Spearfish, SD
Brush is awkward, formula is watery and goes on clumpy and isnt buildable.
Lovely33 from Kansas
Completely dried out brand new package bought that day and opened next morning. Brush is too big and pokes lashes
i'm surprised at all the good reviews this sucks
clairo from NJ
I really hate this mascara it flakes and give my lashes no curl even with a quality eyelash curler. Like this is the worst mascara i've ever used and I usually love L'Oréal's mascaras like the telescopic. Idk maybe i got a bad tube...
I hope they never discontinue this mascara.
Tori from Morristown, TN
I love to experiment with mascara and bought this solely because Bambi is my favorite movie. Plus, who wouldn't want eyes like Bambi? My expectations were low. It was a game changer my lashes looked longer and fuller. No clumps. I will always have this in stock. Highly recommend!

Josette from Virginia
Best lengthening and curling mascara I've ever used including Better than Sex, etc. I use an eyelash curler then slowly run the perfect mascara wand upward through my lashes. 2 or 3 coats and I have an actual wide eyed Bambi look - especially from the side lookin from 2 mirrors
KY Girl from KY
I don't love this mascara, but I don't hate it. My lashes look ok, no smudging or transfer. I'll use up the tube, but stick with Lash Paradise when I'm done.
No thank you
Knorsb from Coeur d Alene, ID
I am a huge fan of the L'Oreal lash paradise mascara, but for some reason I had the urge to deviate from my normal. Other L'Oréal mascaras have been so-so in the past but this one is the worst. It is flaky & I have sensitive eyes so that causes major eye irritation. My lashes are also rather sparse and this tends to clump them together and the formula takes a long time to dry- especially if you're layering. I don't typically throw products away before I finish them- but this was just a waste of money. Don't recommend it.
Bea from San Antonio Tx
Makes my lashes look fuller.
Not a fan
Lin from Texarkana Texas
I like the dark brown color, but it clumped my lashes together and made them appear even less thick than they are
Every stroke of the mascara made it worse and worse
