L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara


L'Oreal had some pretty big claims about the Miss Manga mascara with a very "stand-out" advertising campaign. It's part of the Voluminous line and is supposed to give "oversized, over-the-top volume."


I'll be honest, I needed a new mascara and I grabbed this one on a whim because it's one of the newest out. If I had remembered that it had this type of wand, though, I totally wouldn't have bought it. The brush is a cone shape and the wand is a 360 degree flexor brush that's supposed to quickly build volume.

I don't mind the cone shape, it's actually nice because I like to build up length on the outer corner lashes, the wand, however, is just plain bad. I guess because it bends with you as you coat your lashes that's supposed to help, but I find the flexibility to make it take forever to apply because I don't have control.


Above you can see the product applied to one eye and then the finished look. I find that it does give good volume and my lashes look plump with nice length. It can get clumpy as you build it, but I do like the slightly clumpy look so I don't mind. You definitely don't get the look in the advertisements and overall, I don't think this is anything special. It does a good job, but it's a pain to put on and because I accidentally bought waterproof it's a huge pain to remove.

Have you guys tried this one yet? If you haven't, I say skip it!

  5. it looks really good on your eyes, but I don't think I could handle that wand! I am usually rushing through my makeup and I could see the mascara getting everywhere with the bendy wand!
