Review: L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Punky Mascara

I hauled this mascara in my recent Huge Winter haul video and promised you guys that I would post a review: so here it is!
If you have been following me for a while, you will know that the original Miss Manga mascara was a love of mine when it came out, which is why when I saw this I had to give it a go! The "punky" element freaked me out a little, but I just remembered having amazing experiences with the predecessor so I was willing to give it a try.

 P A C K A G I N G

Packaging is a huge thing for me to pick up a product, especially mascara and besides the fact that this new product was on a huge NEW display, the bright fluorescent yellow top head screamed my name. Other than that, the tube shape and font is exactly the same as the original, which is just fine.
This mascara claims to provide thick voluminous lashes with a spiky effect, so I was looking for sharp looking lashes and of course an obvious change in lash thickness.

The brush itself is a thin conical shape with short bristles. It isn't that unique in comparison to other brushes that I have seen, but short bristles have always seemed to make a
difference to my lashes

As you can see, the mascara has a pretty dramatic effect on my lashes. My lashes are extremely thin and light, but they look 2x thick and long. I like that although my lashes look slightly clumpy, the effect is definitely more 'punky'. I usually have such a big problem using mascara on my bottom lashes, but the point on the wand catches them pretty well.The one thing I didn't like about this mascara was the drying time- this has to be the wettest mascara I have ever used! It took at least a minute to dry.

So far I love the formulation and concept of this new version of Miss Manga, but I have to admit it doesn't do much different than other similar mascaras. Let me know what you guys think/ thought about the mascara!
