One of the main selling points of this mascara is it's bendy 360 wand (you can see the little dip in the picture above showing where it bends). I liked that the design meant that i wasn't putting too much pressure on my lashes, but other than that I wasn't too sold on the bendiness. The wand is tapered so it means you can get to those tricky teeny lower lashes fairly easily and the brush itself is medium sized with lot's of sturdy bristles.
So, Miss Manga didn't quite promise the wide eyed anime look, but it did do quite a good job at making my wispy non-existent lashes noticeable. The above image is just after one coat, and by the time i applied a second coat, and used a nude liner on my waterline, the effect was much more eye opening (pun fully intended hehe!). My only qualm about this mascara is that the formula is a little gloopy and i've ended up with the dreaded panda lower lash quite a few times, but one of the good things is that it is pretty easy to remove with a cotton pad and some micellar water (cough cough unlike Benefit's they're real, which requires a chisel to remove).
At the moment, Miss Manga has replaced my L'Oreal Telescopic for my FOTD and i'm liking it, it's not a lifesaver-omg-this-is-the-best-ever product but it's good, and for £8.99 it doesn't dent my purse quite like Benefit's They're Real does. Will I repurchase? Yes, and I give this mascara a strong 4/5. Have you guys been trying out any new beauty products?
