Manga Mascara

Miss Manga - Loreal - mega volume - mascara - review - swatch - results

Miss manga features a 360 degree flexible brush for effortless application.
Its unique brush has a flat surface to intensify and amplify upper lashes while its conical shape capture the lower lashes.
Formulated with collagen spheres and polymers for ultimate volume and hold.

I really wanted to like this mascara as it has promised everything I like in a mascara. A Bristle brush - Check, Mega Volume - Check, Perfect for the lower lashes - check. Yet did it deliever? Read on to findout!

Firstly I did find the formula was too wet and runny for me and was hard to apply without any mess. I'm really tempted to leave the mascara a while and try again once it's dried out a bit as I normally find they work better then anyway. I left the mascara a few weeks and it did appear to be less runny and messy so if you found this to be a an issue give it another go after a few weeks.

The brush is perfect for me as I much prefer bristle brushes as I feel they really grab even your smallest lash. Yet I would have preferred if the end wasn't as flexible, so I could have had a bit more resistance as I applied the mascara to my lashes. As I feel this stops the lashes clumping. Which leads me on to my next issue.

It is almost impossible to use this mascara and not create clumps. With one coat it was fine and gave a really pretty look but not really dramatic enough for me. Yet with two coats, my lashes really did stick together and  although this makes your lashes appear thicker. It's not a look I'm particularly a fan of. Also it lengthens your lashes  when looking close up the ends are really bitty and spider like. However if you look at the photo where I use the mascara again a few weeks later this isn't as much of an issue.

The mascara holds a curl beautifully and doesn't weigh your lashes down which is a big plus. My favorite thing about this mascara is how black the formula was I really like my lashes to look as dark as possible as my lashes are really fair naturally. 
Overall it's a nice mascara, I will definitely use up my tube but don't think I'll be repurchasing. although if they updated the formula etc. I wouldn't rule out trying it again as it does have the potential to be an amazing mascara.

Have you tried this mascara? What were your thoughts? Which is your favourite highstreet mascara?


  1. I have not tried this mascara. I am loving my Mary Kay Lash Love and actually just found a new Avon one called AeroVolume Mascara that I am really liking...I know Avon has some hit and misses products and I am not a Avon Rep. I am just a beauty junkie and like trying all brands of makeup. I actually wore it out while having a day out with a friend and here in Texas it is already humid and hot and it did not smudge or move. I also would like to invite you to participate in my Funday Friday Comments Tag on my blog BethandBeauty.com. I have started doing this on Fridays to help me get to know my readers/subscribers and fellow bloggers better while everyone will get to know me better as well. My comments are not restricted and you are welcome to share any links back to your blog on there. Hope to see you there!!!

  2. Oooh I think this looks amazing! If i'm going for simple eyes with no colour I always whack on a ton of mascara to get this effect, personal preference I suppose. I'll definitely be checking it out :)


  3. I have read so many mixed reviews Laura-I still love the Maybelline the falsies. I think I will be giving this a miss x

  5. I've been toying with picking one up, but with such conflicting reviews floating around it just seems a little clumpy to me! Lucy at Lucyy Writes xx

  9. I haven't tried this and I don't think I'm going to. I really had high hopes for the next L'oréal Mascara, but this is not what I expected or wanted - it's just nothing I'd ever like.

    I heard rave reviews about this though so it seems to be a hate/love product!

  10. Fantastic review! It does look as though clumps are a problem but totally agree that it definitely looks to have potential!
    The brush design looks great too x


  11. Oh my god you have taken the words (from a future blog post) right out of my mouth!! I may have to hold back a little when I review this, because there is literally almost nothing I like about it :( I didn't even think it holds a curl, and for me that equals disaaaaaster, bad times...
