So, how is everyone faring in this summer heat? Admittedly, I’ve taken to putting the air conditioning on from around noon to 3pm when I’m at home. On other days, I mooch off mall air conditioning… which isn’t technically mooching because I end up paying for parking and maybe also getting an iced coffee anyway.
I’ve said it in other posts already, but the heat is so bad that it really does limit what kind of makeup I use. At the launch of the Miss Manga Mascara, I posted a photo of the product and wrote in the caption that mascara is pretty much the only thing I can pile on in this heat. I meant that, and when you’re going hyper-minimal with everything else, having long and thick lashes makes all the difference.
Miss Manga, formulated especially for stick straight Asian lashes, is perfect for the heat. The waterproof formula ensures that it really isn’t going anywhere. On top of that, you get loads of curl. The L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara will be regularly priced at 599.00 Php, BUT come May, you can get it at its introductory price of 500.00 Php. Miss Manga won’t be the only thing on sale though, as the entire month of May will be…
The Great L’Oreal Sale! You’ll be able to get your fave L’Oreal makeup for up to 45% off, plus skincare and hair color will also be discounted. It’s the perfect time to stock up on stuff!
There will be more information about the specials at the end of this post, but I also wanted to give you an idea of what the Miss Manga mascara can do, as well as show you photos of the adorable press kit I got my sample in. It’s a winner (both press kit and mascara)!
The Cutest Press Kit That Ever Was
This “magazine issue” is the press kit itself. How cute is the Manga Panda on the cover?! Page 1: “The secret to the perfect doll lash look?” Miss Manga’s waterproof formula and conic arched brush head!
Page 2: The mascara itself and a Mat BB Veil sample to keep the base fresh and oil-free.Love the packaging even though hot pink isn’t usually my thing. The shape of the tube makes it nice to hold for some reason… Miss Manga promises 10x volume and 2x curl in one application. I have it on my left eye lashes (your right) in this photo, and you can most definitely see a lot of lift and thickness. It isn’t the kind of mascara that defines every single lash. Instead it makes it appear as though I have more lashes and that they are fluttery and light. I like it!
Removing the waterproof formula will call for a bi-phase makeup remover, but it was not excessively difficult to take off. I can hardly believe that even at regular price, this mascara is so affordable. I was starting to accept the idea that all good mascaras brush at the 1000 Php mark already. Thank goodness L’Oreal are still sensibly priced!

I do highly recommend the Miss Manga Mascara, and if you’re in the market for a good anti-shine, low coverage powder, the Mat Magique BB Veil is pretty darn good too. I like it for touching up oily spots throughout the day.
I was able to pick out some other things at sale price, and these are what I went home with. I also picked up a second Mat Magique BB Veil and a red lipstick for my mom. This sale might be the perfect opportunity for you to get some thoughtful gifts for loved ones, so make plans to hit your favourite mall tomorrow! The sale is at every L’Oreal counter in the Philippines and it’s on for the entire month of May! * All of the products you see in this posts are PR Samples from the brand.
