Let me first say just how much I adored the advertising for L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara. I absolutely love Japanese culture and I can't even count the amount of times I've wished for massive Anime eyes! I just want them to be big and blue and beautiful - that's not a lot to ask god damn it! So when I saw this being advertised I pretty much ran to Superdrug to stock up.
The main selling point with this mascara is the bendy 360 wand with it's tapered bristles to get those tricky lower lashes. The brush is a cone shape which seems to have a sort of wavy effect to it too making it great for all sizes of lashes and encourages those lashes to flair out a bit. It's the sort of wand I've never actually seen before so was extremely interested on how it would work on my lashes. I'm very picky about my mascaras!
How did it work? Well it definitely added a lot of volume for my lashes and made them an intense dark black. The formula was brilliant as well, and dried quickly but not too quickly that you can't add another layer (or two) if necessary. It doesn't smudge or flake during the day which is great as I absolutely hate that. There's nothing more embarrassing or off-putting than mascara flecks all over your face. Plus the formula wasn't too heavy! In the word's of Goldilocks - this mascara was just right.
Did I look like a gorgeous Manga princess? Sort of. My lashes looked big and it was an added bonus that my bottom lashes also looked massive which really opened up my eyes. It's really striking and such a pretty look. I would definitely recommend this mascara and will be using it every day to get that perfect Manga look.
What do you think? Would you give this a try?
