L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Review

Monday, 10 February 2014

Being a false lash-lover, I don't tend to bother when it comes to searching for the perfect mascara. I let my falsies do the work the majority of the time, so a little lacquer of whatever is nearest to had to blend with my natural lashes usually does the job. However, more recently I've been having 'barely there' makeup days, or simply days when I can't really be bothered to put my falsies on. On said days, it is so important to me that I use a good mascara.

I'm overly insecure about my eyes and think they look tiny without falsies on, so for the days when I go without them, I make sure I use a mascara that is going to give maximum volume, curl, and length. Previously my go-to had been Benefit's They're Real mascara, but when L'Oreal released their new Miss Manga offering, I just couldn't resist giving it a go. 

Immediately attracted to the mascara thanks to L'Oreal's amazing Miss Manga campaign, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a tube of the new mascara. I had high hopes for it and honestly, I haven't been disappointed. I'm aware that my lashes will probably never look as 'WOW' as the lashes in the campaign, but as soon as I started using this mascara I fell in love. Something about the unique brush (which bends to get in all those hard-to-reach places) as well as the mascara itself makes my lashes so much longer, thicker and gives some serious curl. I hate it when my lashes look stumpy and straight, and this mascara opens them up and gets them looking curled and Manga-fied. I'm really impressed with this mascara and think for the price you really can't grumble. The mascara is available in black, as well as two ultra-cool 'out-there' colours; violet and turquoise. 

Have you tried L'Oreal's Miss Manga Mascara? What did you think to it?


  1. I have seen this mascara advertised loads but haven't tried it out yet. I think this would work really well with my Rimmel London Lash Accelerator mascara to add some volume. Great review.


  2. I haven't seen this in the shops yet, but it looks fab on your eyes, I have tried to stay away from falsies for a while now and find Benefit they're real gives a similar effect xx

  3. This mascara looks scary in the advert but you manage to make it look good!


  4. I loved this mascara too and my review is also up here - http://itsalwaysdarkestbeforethedawn1.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/review-l-mega-volume-miss-manga-mascara.html?m=1
    do you think you'd try the other colours?

  5. I think for the price this sounds like a lovely mascara!

  6. I nearly bought this yesterday but I wasn't sure whether it was good or not! I wish I had picked it up now! Great review! :)

  10. I really liked the look of this mascara and was debating whether to get it. I think that I will now! Thanks for the review :) xxx

  11. I've got to be honest I didn't expect much from this but I am quite impressed. I still don't think I would spend my money on it though as I believe that I can find better for the same price.



  12. I have seen this in store & wondered if it was any good - from your review it sounds like a great little mascara. I will be picking this up next time I am in boots

  13. I like a plastic wand on a mascara myself! Im a huge fan of seventeens doll’s up mascara! Really recommend it! You should pick it up next time your in Boots!


  14. So many people have raved about the Miss Manga Mascara, I love the effect it gave your lashes.
    Great review. :)

  17. I don't know what happened to me, but after like 2 days of use, my left eyelid was being kinda irritated and some of my lashes fell off(more than usual) when I tried removing it... It actually felt weird as soon as I put it on :(
    Also, I have tried to get used to remove my make-up every night and until now, all that have happened is some broken eyelashes, but that's ok now... until I tried Miss Manga... 1 night with this mascara, and they broke.... I'm really annoyed by it, because it costed me almost 20 $ :/ I know it is not healthy to sleep with make-up, but it happened only one night with that mascara, nothing was wrong before i changed mascara :(

  18. Im also a big false lash wearer so I dont know what to do about this product! Its had mixed review and im not sure weather to give in or not!

    Just did a review on Chanel bronzer check it out



  19. Not sure why, but i haven't been impressed by this mascara - I guess it's a bit too thick for my taste.
    I like definition rather than volume or fullness, and this mascara just got a little bit too clumpy on my lashes.
    That said, glad you liked it, it looks good on you!

  20. I've heard mixed reviews on this, I'm not sure I'll be trying it out, the brush scares me a bit! Your lashes look lovely though :-) xx
