L’Oreal | Miss Manga Mascara

I’m going to kick start this by saying I really had no interest whatsoever when L’Oreal first released the Miss Manga Mascara. I disliked the advert for it so much. I just felt like it was aimed towards teens more than anything, so I really didn’t pay much attention to it.

Then when it came to picking items for a beauty box subscription, this popped up as an option, and with little else to pick from that month, I decided to try it out.

The packaging is standard for drugstore, with quite a chunky plastic tube. It’s pretty enough to look at with it’s black and metallic pink detailing, but I still get that hint of teen from it. Usually I find that L’Oreal’s packaging is aimed more towards the higher end look; it’s quite chic and delicate looking.

The wand is where the magic happens. When I first opened it I really wasn’t sure how exactly it was going to work. The bottom part of the wand has a small indent in it, which lets to brush move and bend 360 degrees. Usually I prefer to have quite sturdy brush to give something to push onto and really coat the lashes, but actually this mechanism works really well. The flexibility of it means that it gets pretty much every lash, without overloading and layering up.

The shape of the brush was new to me too, as it’s quite chunky but cone shaped one, which I’ve actually wanted to try out for a while now. It’s great at getting every lash, even the small ones, with the tapered end meaning that it’s a lot less tricky manoeuvre.

The formula is brilliant; no clumping, no flaking and is kind to sensitive eyes. The wear time is good to and the colour payoff is really true with the black being quite a bold pigment.

The Miss Manga range comes in a variety of colours, so finding something to suit your taste should be a doddle.

  1. I have only heard good things about this so far! I should definitely try it. please check out my blog ❤ i have done a couple of makeup hauls and reviews lately but what i am most proud of is my skin bible series. it is designed to take you on a skincare journey through developing a skincare routine, understanding your skin type and knowing the science behind why you do what you do so you know what ingredients to check for. I even have an entire post dedicated to common skincare ingredients and what they do for your skin! let me know what you think as i am quite proud of it xox your local bohemian

  2. This is my holy grail mascara, i LOVE it! But I was also a bit skeptical at first, especially when i opened it and the wand was all clumpy, but this mascara works wonders! Great post 😉

  3. You know, I have been have been having the same thoughts but but more I see the ads (as silly as they are) the more I want to try! It’s pretty inexpensive too. It’s good to know you like the formula, I think I will invest 😉 Thanks for the review!
