So I begin writing up this post and notice that a jumbo tube of Smarties is visible in the second photo…pretty much sums up how my healthy January is going I think! They are my favourites though so I’m not even sorry!
It’s not very often that I find a mascara that really impresses me. Miss Manga by L’Oreal was on offer in Boots and having not heard of it before I stopped and decided to pick it up instead of my faithful MaxFactor False Lash Effect. In the past I have tried a few various mascaras by L’Oreal and I have to say that I’ve never been too impressed with them, they just didn’t seem to live up to their price or what they were promising. However, Miss Manga has truly shut me up; I bought it half heartedly expecting to be disappointed and it turns out that this is a bit of a gem. It says that it gives you full, thick lashes on top as well as on the bottom and it’s actually the look of my bottom lashes that sold me; I always find that most mascaras I love do great things for my top lashes but when it comes to doing the bottom ones either the wand is too thick or the product just doesn’t work well on them. As you can see from the photo, my lashes are all very much covered and looking a lot thicker than what they normally would be, a look which I personally like but I know that some people prefer a more subtle look for daytime wear.
The wand is pretty thin and fairly flexible. I always associated volumising mascaras with thick wands, so I was pretty surprised to find that it was thin and has a short and spikey comb. It easily and quickly coats my lashes and a couple of coats is enough to achieve a bold, wide eyed look. So, I am very happy to announce that this is one mascara that lives up to its name! I will definitely be repurchasing, if you like a bold eye as I do then I would really recommend trying it.
Have you tried L’Oreal Miss Manga yet? What do you think of it? xx
