After a work shift, I couldn’t resist going to Boots to treat myself, and I stumbled across ‘Miss Manga’ mascara. Here’s what L’Oreal say about the new mascara – “Create the manga look! Mascara with mega volume for both upper and lower lashes. For you who wants extra volume with an easy application. Mega volume x15 for upper and lower lashes. Flexible brush gives your upper and lower lashes mega volume. The tapered shape creates 360 degrees of volume and makes it easy to apply mascara to upper and lower lashes.”

I love the packaging, probably the girliest mascara I’ve owned but still keeping it simple. After trying it out a couple of time I came to the conclusion it doesn’t do exactly what it says on the tin. It gives volume and opens up your eye, but not “x15 volume”. The brush itself is not bad though, thicker at one end meaning your outer lashes have more volume than the inner ones – the ‘manga’ effect. I did think I was going to poke myself in the eye if I wasn’t steady with my hand!
Personally I don’t apply mascara to my bottom lashes and ‘Miss Manga’ was no excuse either, so unfortunately I cannot show you this. However I thought I’d show you some images of what it looks like with the mascara applied to my top lashes (with half my makeup done oops – just eyeliner on the top lid!). Apologies for the poor quality pictures – they were rushed this morning on my phone before my Uni exam!
I paid £5.99 at Boots which is pretty reasonable, although in a couple of weeks it will be going up to £8.99, which is too much for what you get. I will be sticking with my Rimmel Extreme Black Volume Flash x10 Mascara when the price of this mascara goes up.
This product does come in a few colours; black, violet and turquoise. Although I wouldn’t wear violet or turquoise on a day to day basis, as I’m just too used to wearing black as I’m sure anyone would agree with me.
Have you tried Miss Manga mascara? What did you think?
