Based on the cuteness factor of the packaging, at the very least, I expected L’Oreal’s Miss Manga Mascara ($7.99) to grant me lashes that Jem and the Holograms would envy.
The pink and black tube? The bendy brush? The very name itself? — Miss Manga Mascara?
It would have been silly of me to have expected anything other than cartoony doe-eyed drama.
L’Oreal’s latest mascara, Miss Manga is available now in three shades for $7.99 each. The one I’m wearing in the pics below is called 374 Blackest Black.
Now, this stuff is designed to create a very distinct lash look — thick, clumpy, kind of wet and glossy.
Not everyone’s cup of tea, and I can see why, as it’s a little costume-ish and not very natural.
