I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m a Mascara-holic. I dream of long, full lashes. I love thick, black lashes and when I’m not wearing my mascara I feel naked. I think this sounds like a tried-and-true addict, don’t you? Today I was chatting to a fellow blogger, the lovely Carina (Look! It’s Carina!) and we both agreed that mascara is actually a very subjective thing. A mascara that does wonder for my specific lashes could look like a thick, clumpy mess on yours. Regardless, I’m here to review makeup and gosh darnit that’s what I’m going to do. I probably try a new mascara once every two weeks and have about 4 open at any given time.
The “flavour of the month” for me has been the L’Oreal Miss Manga Punky Mascara. This one is a slightly unusual one though as I’m certain you’ll either love it or hate it. If you like funky, spiky, dramatic lashes then you’ll fall into the first category of people but if you don’t then you’ll probably give this one skip.
The bristles are very short and spiky and the brush is quite narrow. At first glance I was a bit worried that the wand would pick up too much product and then deposit that all over my lashes resulting in a mess. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how buildable it is. The spiked bristles and wet formula easily glide through the length of your lashes. It’s also great at fanning out and separating your lashes. They look spiky, but not unnaturally so. I can achieve nice length, separation and thickness with Miss Manga Punky and that’s basically all that I look for in a mascara. I’ve experienced no flaking/fall-out and wear time has been great.
