L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Review

First the packaging, I love this packaging it's fun and eye catching without looking childish(quite the opposite) and I really like the touch of using the colour of the mascara for the name on the lid. It means if you bought more than one of the colours it would be easy to tell them apart whilst they still all look consistent.

I like this brush, I'm a fan of bristled mascara brushes and this one is big enough for me without being too chunky. It easily coats all the lashes and I can get into the inner corners and onto the lower lashes without too much trouble using the narrower end.

The colour is where this one falls down a bit. While it looks lovely and bright in the packaging and on the brush, it dries down dark and looks practically black from a distance. If I've taken pictures of looks without noting the mascara I used then I can have a bit of trouble differentiating this from my other (black) mascaras. This effect may be lessened if you have very pale lashes in the first place.

On my lashes I find this both volumises and lengthens, it does make a noticeable change to how my lashes look as you can see (yes I am reusing an old bare lashes picture, apologies but you get the comparison this way). I haven't personally noticed any flaking or migration during the day and it isn't too hard to remove at the end of the day. 

L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara is available from Boots, Superdrug and anywhere else L'Oreal is sold, with an RRP of £8.99. I really reccommend picking it up, it's a great mascara and more than worth the price.


  1. I love this mascara and use it daily, I will be repurchasing which is very rare for me!x

    1. Yeah, I'm thinking of picking up the black version when I've used up some of my stash. It's really impressive, especially for the price,

  2. This mascara is really good. I can actually see the difference, and for the price you can't really go wrong, can you?

    1. Yeah! I really like it and I'm fussy with mascaras so that's pretty impressive :). Doubly so when I managed to grab it on clearance!
