L'Oréal Miss Manga Mascara in Black & Turquoise

L'Oreal is releasing a new mascara, and I've been testing it out over the past few weeks! The new Miss Manga Mascara* ($10.99/8.5mL) "envelops lashes with mega volume for an innocently flirty, wide-eyed look". This formula uses collagen spheres and a trilogy of polymers adheres to lashes and enlarges them for sensational volume. Well, does this mascara really make my lashes look like that of a Kawaii doll? Read on to find out!

"Straight from the streets of Tokyo L'Oreal Paris brings manga-sized lashes to Canada with Miss Manga by Voluminous."

L'Oreal's Miss Manga Mascara is available permanently in black, blackest black, brown black, and waterproof. Starting August 2014, there will be three fun shades available: purple, turquoise, and electric blue. I've been trying out Black and Turquoise - something for daily wear, and something for when I'm feeling playful!

L'Oreal's Miss Manga Mascara comes packaged in sleek black and pink tubes, that definitely has an Asian feel to them. The brush is on a 360 degree flexor wand that amplifies upper lashes. The cone tip maximizes lower lashes. L'Oreal promises that this formula will give your lashes 15x the volume, and they'll stay flake free all day. 

I find that this mascara gives my lashes a fairly natural look - when I use the black colour. My lashes already have a good length and curl, so I really turn to a mascara for a dose of volume and drama. This wand coats every lash with mascara in a single swipe, making it an easy and quick option in the morning. I find that this formula holds my curl throughout the day, but it doesn't give me a ton of length or volume. I've been enjoying this for daily wear, but it wouldn't be dramatic enough for a night out. The Turquoise shade really gave my lashes a pop of colour, and it'd be a really fun way to change up your makeup. I was impressed with how pigmented this colour was - it will definitely stand out! As promised, this formula doesn't smudge, flake, or fade throughout the day. This formula washes off easily with a regular cleanser, but there is also a waterproof version available.

I've enjoyed trying out L'Oreal's new Miss Manga Mascara, it's a great option for day-to-day wear. However, if you like a more dramatic look, I don't think that you'll love this formula. L'Oreal claimed that this formula gives 15x the volume, and I just don't agree with that statement. Have you picked up a tube of L'Oreal's new Miss Manga Mascara yet? What is your favourite mascara for super voluminous, dramatic lashes?

    1. Ya, I like it for daily wear, but it's not as dramatic as I was hoping for.

  7. I was looking at this yesterday and almsot wanted to buy it. Didn't know there was a coloured version! I was curious about the 15x volume thing but I guess it didn't as much. I like their million lashes mascasra!
