L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Final Review + Giveaway

After spending a couple weeks playing around with this mascara, the consensus is in:


See how beautiful it makes my eyelashes look?

2 coats of Miss Manga Mascara

This mascara makes my eyes look nice and big, which is what it claims to do. It also volumizes each lash and gives me the kind of big, voluminous eyelash look that I want. The key is to really wiggle and roll the wand while applying it, or use a separator tool. To see the tricks and tips I have for you, please check out the video below:

Miss Manga vs Better Than Sex: Mascara Showdown!

Alright you guys... I heard a lot of hype around L'Oreal's new mascara: Miss Manga. This mascara was inspired by the big manga eye trend in Japan. This is the big, beautiful anime eyes that you see so very often.

On L'oreal's website it says:
"Introducing the cone-shaped 360⁰ flexor brush that builds up to 15X overload volume in a flash. Top lashes are amplified, bottom lashes maximized for the ultimate wide-eyed manga look."

This is true. The wand is very unique and flexible. I do get a lot of volume and it does make my eyes appear to be bigger.

I wanted to do a mascara showdown. My favorite mascara at the moment is Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. It's volumizing and wonderful - and it wears all day for me. In my video, I talk about the difference between the two and tell you my initial thoughts about the Miss Manga mascara.

L'Oreal happens to be my favorite cosmetic line from the drugstore, and their mascaras typically work for me. I'll be posting another video with my final thoughts on this new mascara in the next week. Stay tuned for that!

For more information regarding this mascara, check out L'Oreal's website!
