They are always putting out new mascaras, aren’t they? I don’t even try to keep up anymore, but while purchasing things for my $30 face, I stumbled across this. It didn’t fit in the Makeup Wars post, but the packaging was so cute, and I generally love L’Oreal mascara, I had to get it.

L'Oreal Manga Mascara by @retrodiva

This is the new L’Oreal Voluminous Manga mascara, designed to give you those wide eyed, big-lashed manga style eyes. What makes this unique is the brush (isn’t that true for all of them?). It’s flexible and the bristles are a bit uneven to give you better coverage. The claim to fame is “oversized volume,” and you can see for yourself what that means on the photo. I did one coat, then three coats, because you shouldn’t only do two. Commit to those lashes with three coats, or keep it natural with just one.

Overall, it wasn’t for me. My lashes ended up looking kind of spidery and weird, even though the formula is nice and thick. Some of their other formulas just seem to work better for me.

Have you tried the latest from L’Oreal? What do you think?
