Guest Post - L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Review

Oh its an exciting day for you lot - none of my ramblings today! (Well apart from this bit....!) I have a very lovely and exciting guest post from one of my very favourite bloggers, nay, people - the lovely miss Hayley of Tea Party Beauty. Without further ado, here's her thoughts on the L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara:

Hello Ladies and Gents, my name is Hayley and I blog over at Tea Party Beauty, a Beauty and Lifestyle blog - mainly Beauty but sometimes I like to throw the odd curve ball in. The lovely Kel has kindly let me run riot over here for the day whilst she is off gallivanting somewhere (no doubt having a lovely afternoon tea to make us all jealous with). 

I love Mascara, so when I heard about the release of this little one a few weeks back I couldn't wait to snap it up, but then I saw the adverts; the spidery looking lashes on the model kind of put me off. To cut a long story short I caved & bought it, I wanted to judge it for myself, and I like the name. Yes, I am that shallow when it comes to products, if it had been called something like Lash Burst I wouldn’t have been fussed for it. Those clever marketers them *shakes fist*. They gave me visions of being a cute little manga character with big doe eyes. 
Miss Manga review
Now I hate nothing more than spidery looking mascara; well I do obviously hate things more, slow walkers for one, but in mascara terms spidery lashes are top of my list. And after purchasing this & seeing peoples blog pictures I got a little scared - it looked like there had been an invasion of spiders. But I used it anyway and there lies my downfall... Eurgh is this isn't the worst mascara since The Falsies then I'll be damned, first up the packaging is pretty plain and boring; I wanted pops of colour and nice-ness. The formula is rather gloopy too and mix that with the strange brush you have a recipe for spidery lashes. I will say that it gave plenty of length though which was great for me as my lashes are rather short and stumpy (a bit like me), but who wants 6 long lashes and nothing else? 

As you can probably tell I was not a fan of this mascara which is a shame as I usually love the offerings from L'Oreal *sad face* They could have had an amazing product here but it seems they missed a trick. 

Have you tried this before? I would love to know what you thought of it as I have seen plenty of mixed reviews. 

P.S Thanks for reading

  1. Great review, Hayley has a lovely writing style! What a shame she was disappointed though - this definitely seems to be a love/hate product.

  2. Interesting review. I am currently on the search for new mascara! The funny thing is that I am both a slow-walker and lover of the falsies mascara. :P *hides*

    1. haha I've never tried the falsies myself so I'm just uninformed :)
