Hi Darlings, today’s review is going to be on the L’Oreal Bambi Eye Extra Black False Lash Mascara.
If I mention this mascara again you are going to kill me, I know, but it’s my favourite and when this new version arrived at the store the other week I had to see if it was as good as the first one.
I normally wouldn’t review the darker shade of a mascara but this is my favourite and it made me curious.
Since it’s so new I couldn’t find it online but I’m sure you’ll be able to get it from Ulta in a few weeks (just like the first one) and it will retail for 10,99$.
The packaging is classic of mascara, kind of looks like a wing and it has Bambi over it, it’s so cute.
It has an oval silicone brush which is my favourite kind of brush because it allows to grab every lash and create a super defined and volumized look.
The formula has quite a liquid consistency and very black. If you are not careful, it tends to transfer onto your lids when you apply it.
In my opinion, it doesn’t look any blacker than the other but let me know if you see a difference.
Once it dries, it doesn’t smudge or flake off.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I always do two coats of mascara to get the best results. Call me crazy but this mascara is not as good at the other one. To be honest the shade looks identical to me but this one is less volumizing.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
I find it fairly easy to remove with micellar water, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

I am genuinely confused, don’t get me wrong this mascara is nice, it’s just not as good as the original one. To be honest, it’s not even blacker. When I wear the classic one I have people asking me if I’m wearing falsies, this one is ok but I 100% prefer the other one.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
