Okay, so unless you've been living under a rock for the past month (highly unlikely), I'm sure you are all familiar with L'Oreal's newest mascara, Mega Volume Miss Manga. Not only has it been heavily advertised but it's been reviewed by several other bloggers and YouTubers. Not surprising considering the fact that the Miss Manga mascara features a 360° flexible cone shaped brush that's supposed to provide an effortless application. I'm sure that this a feature that draws a lot of people to the product. To be quite frank I don't find it to be particularly useful as I don't see the need for it. You have to apply extra pressure to enable the wand to bend and I just don't have time for that. The less faffing around, the better.

It's slightly bizarre but I usually take a massive disliking to new mascaras upon first application and need to use it a good few times for me to start liking it. This has been no exception for the Miss Manga mascara. Upon the first few applications I found this mascara to be overly wet meaning that I often got product on the top of my eyelids. This is not too big of a fuss for me as I always have cotton buds at hand to wipe away any excess product. However, I dislike the fact that it does not separate your eyelashes individually, but instead causes them to clump together in little groups giving off a spidery look.
On a positive note, one thing that is great about this mascara is that it really does lengthen your lashes. For that reason I sometimes use it as a base and in combination with either my L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes (in extra black) or Rimmel Scandaleyes (in extreme black). Both of these mascaras happen to be two of my all time favourites and really do help me achieve the finishing look that I love ♥
Prior to using this product and after reading about the promising results that this mascara states to offer, I was quite excited to see the transformation of my natural eyelashes to va-va-voom eyelashes. Sadly, I am yet to experience this excitement. However, as mentioned beforehand it does take me quite a while to warm up to new mascaras so you never know, I might actually end up loving it. Lol!
Have any of you ladies tried it out and if so what do you think? X
