Miss Manga | Mascara Review

Thursday, June 18, 2015




Experimenting with different mascara never gets old. If a little black tube is going to promise longer, thicker, and luscious lashes that will flutter me to the moon and back there's no doubt that baby is going in my shopping basket. Although I have already found my it mascara---Tarte's lights, camera, flashes (a.k.a. the ultimate mascara of all time---read my review here)---it definitely is not in the budget to fork over 20 bucks every time I was in desperate need for a new tube. So it was back to the drawing board drug store for this little missy where things are conveniently more affordable~

After seeing the Miss Manga mascara by L'Oreal on commercials non-stop since the break started I knew I definitely wanted to give this mascara a go. The Miss Manga mascara is Japanese inspired and promises to give your eyes that doll like look which is often seen in Japanese manga as the girls are always drawn with a luscious and full set of lashes that help them appear very doll like, innocent, and very feminine. Hence the name Miss Manga.

"Hello, Miss Manga step into the world of oversized, over the top lash volume" 

I don't know about you, but all of that sounds good to me~
 
Color/Formula: This mascara comes in three shades: Brown, Black, and Blackest Black. I always tend to gravitate towards Blackest Black as I like to make my lashes as dark as possible as I feel like it creates an eye-opening effect and makes your eyes appear bigger than they really are. The formula of this mascara is very creamy and glides on the lashes with ease. I accidentally purchased the water proof formula (oops), but the good thing is no smudges here. My mascara stays in place all day without a smudge in sight~

Application: The brush of this mascara is quite unique as it is cone shaped. The brush is also designed to have 360 degrees flexibility to make application more easier as well as achieve that volumnized look. But, if I'm being honest here I found the brush to feel more flimsy instead of flexible so I could do without that part. I found myself re-applying various coats (I lost count) of mascara until I achieved the look I wanted. This is definitely something I was not a fan of.

The Look: This mascara does not lie and delivers on its word. My lashes did appear fuller and the volume this mascara gave me really blew me away. My eyes appeared bigger and lets be honest here who doesn't want perfect doll like lashes?

PROS: Fuller lashes, volumnizes, creates a cute and doll like look, long lasting, and very affordable ($5.99 at certain drug stores and retails for $7.99)!

CONS: Flimsy brush

RATING: 4/5


Overall, while the application may be annoying at times due to the brush I really like this mascara. If you are patient this mascara really pays off with doll eye look~
