My opinion for this product has completed flipped from when i first saw the adverts for it. It is nothing as i expected and showed me that you shouldn’t judge a product through its name.
When i initially saw the adverts for this i instantly crossed it out of my hypothetical ‘wish list’. The first thing that springs to mind when something is named through ‘Manga’ inspiration is clumpy lashes. Instead of a blanket of sexy fluttery individual lashes, i think of 5 spikes of clumped lashes.
One afternoon, i found myself in front of one of the Miss Manga demo wand and the brush fascinated me. It was a bristled brush, which first of all surprised me. Then i noticed the shape; fat bristles at the base of the wand, with them narrowing towards the tip so it is in a cone-shape. Perfect for creating sexy feline volume on the outer corners.
Something else i noticed was the rubber joint in the length of the wand, i pinged it about a bit with my finger to discover how stiff it was, at the time i thought it was an odd addition to the wand by after trying the mascara i was pleasantly surprised. As i’m sure you can gather by now… i purchased the mascara, i just couldn’t help myself!
When i got home and tried it, i was so happy i made the purchase. The rubber joint allows the brush to gently coat the lashes in intense black, without feeling like any pressure it being applied to the delicate roots. It also creates the perfect wiggle for getting right into the roots to get brilliant volume.
The lasting power is superb! I can wear it all day with no flaking and no loss of length or volume which is hard to come by. It does take a little more effort to get it off at night, but i’m willing massage a little longer.
The only pitfall to the product is as i expected, if you over-apply you can get clumpy lashes so less is definitely more in this circumstance!
I’ve been using this mascara for just over a month now, and i can honestly say i would happily repurchase.
Have you tried the Miss Manga mascara? What are your thoughts?
