L'Oreal Miss Manga (Punky)

 A mascara not for the faint hearted!


I love trying out new mascaras, and when I saw this shiny lime green packaging looking at me of course I had to purchase!
One thing I can say without a doubt about this mascara is how unique it is. The mascara aims to give you volume and spiky, punky lashes. The wand is plastic and has a conical shape brush that catches all your lashes from the base, which leaves clumps of very black mascara that feels icky (that's just not for me). The bristles are well spaced apart to provide the punky look.


Overall, I'm not a fan of this mascara. The wand picks up so much product that it feels and looks gloopy. Yes that's the look it is meant to give but nope, just not for me. My lashes did look like they had more volume and length but the whole spiky thing was inconsistent. It would either work out or not work out depending on the day (lashes looked nothing like the model). As the day wore on the mascara really dried out on my lashes which left me with flaky bits in my eyes or on my cheeks. Will I part with €8.99 for this again? No. Sorry L'Oreal, this just does not work for me.


Will you be rocking the punky look?

    1. I really like Benefit Roller Lash but I've heard that there is a dupe in the chemist so I'm going to have to go find it and see how it compares :-) As regards to the WOW yeah I haven't been bowled over lately with mascaras xx

  5. That funky packaging would suck me right in too. Although looking at the bristles I can't imagine having a good experience with it. Let us know how you get on with the new maybelline x
