NEW DRUGSTORE MASCARAS: L'Oreal Miss Manga & Maybelline Pumped Up Collosal

Hey guys! I have a confession to tell you, I have a problem when it comes to mascaras. I have way too many for my own good (I will probably give some out before they go bad so someone can use them). Right when I need to save money, new collections come out. And you guys, I have been waiting for the Miss Manga mascara to come out forever! If you read manga like me, then it is a must have, you don't even care if it's going to be a crappy formula. I told my friend about it who only wears hardly any makeup about it and she said she needed it because of the name. But anyway, let's get onto the reviews!

L'Oreal Miss Manga: For packaging, the Miss Manga wins. It's super cute and totally towers over the Maybelline one. As for the forumula, I did see that it gave me more volume in my lashes. But the color was a little grey. It does a good job of separating and defining my lashes, but it can get clumpy if you're not careful. When I was looking at the display, I did not see a waterproof formula anywhere. Which is sad because if you know me, then you know that I only buy waterproof. But luckily, this did not smudge on me or flake off my lashes. But sadly, it does not hold a curl. If you like dry formulas, then you will really like this. It definitely builds up the thickness of your lashes and gives you more volume.

Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal: Okay, Maybelline has a ton of mascaras and it's hard to keep track of them all. But this one stands out a little more to me because it just gives the exact look I want for my lashes. As you can see in the picture, the color of the Maybelline mascara is more bold and noticeable. This is the brown color and it's still more bold than the L'Oreal one. The brush really defines your lashes and makes then stand out more. The formula is more on the wetter side. And guess what? It's waterproof! No smudges! It does not hold a curl for the entire day, but it does hold better than the L'Oreal.

Can you tell which one I like better? ;D I really wanted to like the L'Oreal Miss Manga, but I guess I just prefer wet mascaras to dry. See you next time! ^_^


  1. To be honest, they both look fairly similar! Maybelline's does look a little better, and to be fair, I'm sure half the stuff I buy is because of the name :D

    1. They do look similar. And cute names are a breaking point for a lot of people. That's how they get us! ^_^
