Not everyone likes mascara, and I’m not often seen singing its praises much. I’m very lucky in the fact that I have quite thick and long eyelashes, so mascara isn’t really a high priority in my makeup routine. BUT(!!!!) I am a sucker for a good deal and can be persuaded when the suggestion of manga is involved, so you can imagine I swooned when I saw L’Oreal’s Miss Manga mascara on sale.
Now, I’m no beauty guru and the only make-up transformations I’m known for is either a very round-faced Captain Jack Sparrow or ‘slightly-less-sleepy-than-she-may-seem Amy’, but I was impressed with this stuff.
First of all, it didn’t burn my eyelids, which is always a good start with makeup. Having skin as sensitive as that of a baby guinea pig, my skin is usually irritated by the slightest thing and a mascara that doesn’t burn is often quite hard to come by (now you understand why I’m no Michelle Phan). This stuff didn’t bug me in the slightest!
It is really nice and smooth to apply, not leaving you with nasty ‘spider leg lashes’ or clumps that fall into your eyes.
As well as making my eyelashes look even fuller and longer (and hiding the couple weird white eyelashes I have) the product isn’t the usual lumpy stodgy mix you find in a lot of mascaras, but it’s really light and liquidy, so it doesn’t weigh a lot!
The brush is really neat-looking, with space between the bristles so it gets the right shape and doesn’t hold too much or too little product. I’m not sure why, but I find the design of the brush really good, and I’m really glad the bristles are shorter than usual so that you can get really close to the roots without jabbing your eye.
- Nice and light, doesn’t make my eyelids feel heavy or dirty!
- Applies really smoothly with no nasty clumps
- Huzzah, I’m not allergic to it!
- Cool brush!
- Makes my lashes look longer and thicker without making them look unnatural or creepy
- Works well on lower lashes
- Really nice to wash off, not irritating and doesn’t leave nasty residue
- Look Manga? Yup, I’d say it looks pretty darn kawaii!
- Dries smooth so it doesn’t clump your eyelashes
- No ‘spider leg lashes’!
Would I recommend it? Heck yeah (even to my sensitive skinned buddies out there)!
You can find the mascara on Amazon!
