L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara – Review & swatches

Inspired by the unique Japanese Manga theme, this mascara promises to make your eyes appear more awake. You would know if you’ve seen Manga girls with those big doe-eyes which, as a matter of fact, make them look so innocent, no?

Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara
Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates mega volume on top and bottom so eyes look more open.

Our exclusive formula, made up of enlarging collagen spheres works perfectly in conjunction with the 360° flexible cone shaped brush to amplify upper lashes and reveal lower lashes.

The exclusive formula also contains a trilogy of polymers for absolute hold and staying power.

My thoughts
Even though I am digging the fancy concept, I am not blown away by its performance to be honest. In my opinion, the formula is nothing special because it gives me very similar results that I get with my regular mascaras that are devoid of any collagen spheres.

The conical wand features varying bristle length which tapers at the tip to target the shortest lashes. It definitely helps coats the hard-to reach and bottom lashes without any fuss. However, I don’t see any use for the 360° rotation because the wand hardly ever bends during application. Speaking of the formula, it leans just a bit on the wet side but not so much so that it's troubling. It does give noticeable volume in a single coat and lift my lashes however, I would strictly advise against doing multiple coats. Layering too much would only give you clumped-up spider lashes. There isn’t much lengthening but I can’t really complain about that since it only claims to volumize. It feels light and holds the curl well through the day.

Overall, I think it’s an okay-ish mascara. Not bad but doesn't entirely deliver what it claims, Manga eyes that is!

You might like it if…
  • You expect it to give volume and lift to your lashes
  • The mascara doesn’t feel heavy
  • It holds the curl and stays put
  • The wand ensures coating longest and shortest lashes easily
You might not it if…
  • You expect dramatic lengthening
  • Your lashes get clumpy with multiple coats

  1. I was kind of waiting for your views on this one as I am almost out of my Artdeco mascara and the brand ain't available here. Gotta get this one now. Thanks for the review xx

    1. I think this mascara is over rated. I reviewed a catrice mascara which gives better result and costs less than half of manga's price. You should try that one.

    2. Hey Hira, thanks for your suggestions but (a)- Catrice is not available in Malaysia, (b)- I will be ordering it from somewhere where I can get the $ price most probably so I will not be paying extra amount & (c)- I feel like my skin type / lash type is almost like Sara's and my main concern is always curling my lashes with a mascara and to keep the curl there. So I feel like it is going to work for me.

      I will definitely check out your review too. Thanks again xx

    3. Oh, its a shame Catrice isn't available in Malaysia. Else I am sure you would love Catrice all round mascara as it does give that dramatic curl that stays throughout the day.

  2. Nice review dear......xoxoxo....^_^

  3. I agree, it looks okay but nothing so big and eye widening! I would expect it to give more length and curl!

  4. its a bit wet and heavy for me so I too wasn't blown away by this sadly!

  5. Ahaan..very well.. and your camera is just ZABARDAST YAAR.. such fresh look MashaAllah

  6. I love the whole Manga concept of this mascara and the cute packaging!

  7. I can see it is a good everyday masacara but doesn't make a big difference to the lashes. x

  8. nice review, the voluminious one is better i guess
