I tend to wear a lot less make up when I go away on holiday. When it is hot the last thing that I ever want to do is slap foundation on my face so I tend to keep my make up a lot simpler. One thing that I will always wear without fail though is mascara. I brought L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara just before I went, the cute packaging and advertising definitely sold it to me. I was a bit unsure about taking a mascara I had never tried before on holiday with me but thought I would be a rebel and give it a go.
This mascara definitely grew on me throughout the holiday, at first I thought it was okay but the more I used it the more I liked it. I mean the packaging is metallic pink and black, so there was nothing not to love really. The wand has a mixture of different sized bristles that seem to catch all of the lashes and is nice and comfortable to hold.
I really like how thick my lashes become with this, although some might be put off as it can sometimes look on the clumpy side. I don’t know if this is what L’Oreal mean by the ‘manga effect’ though, as a lot of eyelashes on manga characters tend to be stuck together slightly to emphasise the eyes. I found this mascara didn’t provide much length, it just made the lashes chunkier which I find is perfect for a night out if you don’t want to put on falsies or if you are incapable of putting them on like me.
I do find this slightly tricky to remove as it applies so thickly. It reminds me slightly of Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ mascara in terms of removal but once you go over the eyes a few times with remover it eventually gives in and comes off.
Overall I do really like this mascara but I feel it doesn’t have an ‘OMG I need to buy this again’ factor, don’t get me wrong it is a nice mascara but for me it is lacking something but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is! ♥♥ GFC ♥ RSS ♥ bloglovin ♥ facebook ♥ twitter ♥
