Miss Manga Purple Mascara

Never in my life did I think I would ever own, never mind wear, a purple mascara! I have always been a blackest of black kind of girl when it come to my lashes, never even venturing into brown, but L'Oreal have changed my world!

After a late night of reading random articles online I found myself on a page explaining what eye shadow shades go best with which eye colours. I always find this difficult because my eyes are never the same colour for very long, they seem to change from blue to green to grey, or any combination of the three. I know, it's odd, I always mean to research it to find out why... does this happen to anyone else?? Anyway, that makes it hard sometimes to try and follow those rules so I usually just ignore them, but, after reading that purple can be a good colour for all of the above it brought back to mind the L'Oreal Manga Mascara that were recently released. I needed a new Falsies anyway and Boots had on their 3 for 2 so I thought if I was going to try a purple mascara, it may as well be when it was on offer.

First of all, this is the first mascara I have ever loved from first use, normally, for me, the first few uses the product is just a little too wet to look how it should -this stuff isn't! I decided to try it without too much else going on around my eyes for the first go. I smudged a little brown eye liner along my top lash line and then applied the mascara. It goes on so well, the bend in the brush stops too much product going on at once and I have to say, probably the best "buildable" mascara I have ever tried. I applied 3 coats and there was no clumps or thick messy lashes, they just got a little longer each time and stayed separated. When I am indoors I don't notice a huge difference in colour to wearing black unless I am up close to a mirror, but it does something magical for my eyes, it makes the colour of them look brighter some how. However, when you are outside in bright have purple eye lashes! And I have to say, I really don't hate it! I think they look quite nice for this time of year. Even if you don't want to try a colourful mascara I would recommend them for the formula, it really is excellent. I had no flaking or smudging after a whole day of wearing it. These mascaras aren't waterproof so if that is something you look for these may not be for you, it would be nice if they did eventually come out with a waterproof version.

I will definitely be going back to get the black, but I don't think I will ever be brave enough to try the turquoise shade, it looks so bright! Maybe, just on the tips of my lashes it could look kind of fun? I did want to try and get a picture of me wearing it to show you all but I couldn't for two reasons. 1-my eyes are quite red right now and it doesn't look that great and 2- try as I might to get over it, I still don't feel that comfortable taking pictures of myself...sorry.

What do you think of the new Miss Manga Mascaras? Would you ever try the turquoise shade?


  1. This is awesome! I was reading an article the other day about purple mascara and it made me want to try it out because it was supposed to compliment brown eyes. This one sounds great!

    1. Purple seems to be a great colour for lots of eyes. This is a lovely one! x

  2. I always find this difficult because my eyes are never the same colour for very long, they seem to change from blue to green to dragon ball super
