L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga Punky Mascara Review


For ages I have been looking for a new mascara one that is inexpensive, volumising and inexpensive as in the drug store mascara (along with foundation), seem to have ever inflating prices. Over the last year or so, I’ve started to favour the harder bristles it might just be the better products use these types of brushes or that the brushes are better but I always feel like the result is much better.

The new (well newish) mascara claims all of the below:

Mega Volume texturising mascara for an intense spiky effect on top and bottom lashes.

The conical shape of the brush catches your top and bottom lashes. The large spaces between the bristles create a Punky comb like effect, that helps style your lashes into spikes.

The new texturising formula created by L’Oreal Paris researchers allows you to create unique lashes that look spiked with mega volume

I was curious to try and my boyfriend got so annoyed about the name being a punk fan himself the entire concept pissed him off completely and then I bought it, oops!

The wand is truly unique the spindles been very small and spikey, it creates a unique spiked clumped together look which instantly makes a look a lot more dramatic. Now its not for an everyday laid back look or a romantic flirty look but if you want something that’s a little more edgy. Also it doesn’t do the same clumpy spikes that you see in in the adverts I get it slightly more subtle but it does clump, the only difference here is that it is meant to do this and not everyone will like this. Isn’t clumpy mascara a step backwards though? I here you cry, I suppose it is with eyelash combs and loads of unique brushes to get rid of clumps and now we have one to create clump mascara look. It serves a purpose somewhat I guess its unique but it is not good as the only mascara in your arsenal and I always try and work it a bit so it doesn’t just look like spider eye.

I have to say there is one major downside namely the fact that so much product goes on its quite hard to ensure you’ve taken it all off luckily I’ve recently brought the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water which is amazing at taking it off. I’m not sponsored by L’Oreal Paris I just wish I was. Just make sure if you use it take you time taking it off, no one wants panda eyes in the morning.

Overall all I love the uniqueness of the product and its nice there is something new on the market however, I would always have at least one other mascara in my make up collection. So its great if you want the spiky clumped look but I think you’d be better off looking elsewhere.

The L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Punky Mascara is available from Boots and Superdrug  and retails for £8.99.
