I first saw the ad for this mascara about 2 months ago, and even though I had absolutely no need for a new mascara, I found myself wanting it… Why, you ask? Bambi!
The advert showed all these cute little cartoons of Bambi and it was so girly and pretty, I wanted it! Don’t believe me?
Just watch the advert below and you’ll see exactly what I mean!
(Ps, I’m not being paid to put this advert here, I’m just trying to prove my point!)
Basically any Disney collab just does it for me. Cath Kidston, Mac, Vans… I’m such a sucker for it.
Bucket – boring. Bucket with minnie mouse on it – cute! Toothbrush – dull. Toothbrush with Alice in Wonderland – need… You get the drift. I don’t know that this is a Disney collab exactly as there’s no logos to suggest that’s the case, but there was definitely original images used in the advert, so kudos to their advertising team for that!
I bought the mascara in Boots for £10.99 (It’s on 3 for 2 on their website at the moment!) and I was so excited to try it. I kind of pictured myself having these massive dark doe-eyes like the girls you see on Pinterest and Instagram. The mascara comes in a silver mirrored tube which surprised me. I thought there may have been some Bambi images on the tube, but since this isn’t an official collab, perhaps they weren’t allowed…
The brush has a curved bristle brush which is apparenlty designed to reach and coat every lash for a wide-eyed lash look. According to the L’Oreal website, the long bristles elongate your lashes while the short bristles provide long-lasting curl.
The mascara applies really nicely. It’s very smooth and doesn’t clump, and it’s very build-able, so if, like me, you like the very dark mascara look, you can apply several layers to make it as dramatic as you like.
This was the look after 1 coat of mascara.
(please excuse the dark circles under my eyes in the ‘no make-up image on the left)
I would buy this mascara again as I do think it’s reliable and doesn’t smudge, however I wouldn’t be in any rush. I feel I’ve tried other mascaras in the past that have been the same, if not better, but if you’re after a clump-free, natural looking mascara then I would recommend it.
